    I've never been able to see the 'fake hair' in the prequels during the film or from stills. I still cannot see it. However, I'm sure I would be deeply annoyed if I did notice it.

    This is one of the most ridiculous posts I've ever read. Ya'know it's possible to like some parts of something but dislike it overall?

    EX. I like Romney's hair, but I hate his politics.
    EX: I like chocolate, but hate donuts, peanuts and sprinkles

    Same here. I stared at a few photos of his fake hair and real hair and I honestly can't tell the difference.

    The fake beard and wig in AOTC are so obvious I just don't believe anyone who claims that they don't notice them. The lightsaber lecture outside of the club is probably the worst. It looks like someone used Pritstik to glue some hair from a local barbers onto Ewans face. The lighting changes from shot to shot too.

    Also the above pic from TPM looks like Ewan put on about two stone between principal photograpy and pickups. He looks bloated. Look at the bags under his eyes. Didn't he have a bit of a drink problem around this time? I'm sure I read that he gave up alcohol during filming of AOTC in Sydney in 2000 and has been tea total since...

    I'm no good at this. I can sorta tell that the pictures are different but I can't tell that it's a wig. lol

    It's all connected to Mark Ruffalo somehow.

    Thanks. It's a not-inconsiderable achievement.

    I hate being misunderstood, but I like the hilarity that ensues.

    At first, I thought Cryo was saying Ewan looked different cuz he ate a bunch ton of doughnuts.

    Not really. I was just ribbing him for his fixation on a microscopic aspect of the prequel trilogy. It's rather amusing that some fans have taken a handful of minor happenings and blown them out of all proportion: made a mountain out of a molehill. In so doing, they overlook silly moments in the OT -- like Han saying, "What a wonderful smell you've discovered", or a toolbox falling on his head, or Artoo spitting out mud, that frog creature catching a small meal in twilight outside Jabba's Palace and burping, etc. -- to the point of raising to apotheosis that which is intended to be trivially light-hearted and silly. Like it just dominates their thoughts and colours all their perceptions. Hence, when Kilroy looks at donuts, does he see dog poop?

    Well, I think he must have raided Padme's stash on the ship back on the way to Naboo... ;) [face_devil]

    I love Ewan, really! [face_batting] @};-

    Trade Federation Star Doughnuts are only different in your mind.

    If it didn't say "Star Wars", I bet you would hate the prequel trilogy.

    The fake beards and wigs were so obvious that I am now angry and vow to purge every copy of the PT in existence.

    If The Hobbit is any indication, makeup is going to have to take some kind of quantum leap to not constantly pulling people out of the film. When I first saw Liams long hair, I spent a couple of minutes looking for the demarcation line between the fake and real parts of his face, but after a few minutes it all just blurred together again and I was able to forget about it for the rest of the flick. In The Hobbit, it just keeps popping up over and over again. If it is going to be this way with all super clear high def digital film from now on, movies are going to started get pretty unintentionally hilarious.

    Whenever I go see a movie and the character's hair isn't accurate, I leave the theater in disgust and boycott the film.
