    Using that word like that is not advanced, it's stupid. I won't tolerate it and I'm somewhat disgusted that some of you would defend its use in such a blazé manner. That's the final word on this subject.

    Oh, by the way, I know how much today's CS kiddies love derogatory terms, so I'll make this clear - the policy also extends to terms such as "gay" in any sort of derogatory context. Just so you're not confused. :)

    Hawk, can you please fix the word which was used two lines down in the same post.

    Also, can people please respect that not everyone here are gamers and that some words are not understood by everyone. I have no idea about any gaming jargon myself and can misinterpret what you are saying.

    I don't really want to join in this heinously off topic debate, but I think if one person is offended it should be enough for us to stop and apologise. Remember, we're all friends here and we don't want anyone to feel unwelcome. Also, we don't need to go on about it, nor discuss whether it was bad or not (contradicting myself by posting this, but...) - like I said if one person was offended that should be enough.

    Having said that, we also shouldn't be making the person who offended us unwelcome either. We've got to share the love.

    We need to approach this in a mature adult-like manner and go back to discussing the finer points of a movie by using references to lego kits.

    Well, sure it sounded like Seymour Skinner yelling through a TRU Vader voice changer, but I do make an allowance for the fact that his lungs were probably seared along with his throat, maybe his body was incapable of sustaining a long bellowing no, and also he was speaking through a sealed helmet microphone, so that could have effected it as well.

    Persoanlly, I liked the scene, the silence before the helmet is sealed and that first breath comes on is amazing, as is, imo, the "frankenstein" walk as he steps away from the table, bearing in mind his anguish and the fact he is taking his first steps on new legs.

    And I just love that manipulative, ******* grin on Palpatine's face when vader does it.

    I think the people that have an appreciation for the myriad references to ground breaking popular culture events through the SW movies will actually like this fact. References to films like the Seven Samurai and others that are very subtle go under the radar, but when a heavily parodied movie is referenced most people think it's cheesy.

    I personally loved it. If you've read the book, the similarities go much deeper than just the "monster" bit. I took it for what it was - a tribute, and a device for really strong imagery.

    Those people who thought it was cheesy... well, I can see where you're coming from and I agree with you to a point, but I liked it.

    Ok... I gotta say it (and get this thread back on track)

    Anyone see the little Silver MicroMousedroids :)
    I saw in I think the 60minutes version, Lucas actually
    had a large Mousedroid back away from Anakins entrance on
    the Separatist on Mustafar. But in the final version he has
    replaced it with several smaller silver version.

    I saw those!

    I don't think they were ever meant to be that big, we just saw a pre-vis on the 60 mins bit.

    I've always meant to build a mouse droid out of a remote control car...

    stragling the english languag my ass, some people need to get with the times and stop acting so superior to everyone.

    im fine with it not being used or it being used i just waned to see what the mods had to say.

    im not a hardcore gamer nor are many of the people i know that use that same term in similar contexts.

    i intend to let that particular thing go im more pissed off about certain peoples attitudes and superiority complexes atm. im sorry is atm too hardcore gamer for at the moment?

    Benji, after my third viewing I'm looking forward to the last 30 mins of the movie most. It's the SW myth that's been built up for 28 years, it's classic cinema before it even hit the screen! :D

    Something else that caught my attention is Obi-Wan's line, "I loved you!". Wait, did he just say that he loved Anakin? Isn't that against the Jedi code? Is Obi-Wan admitting to breaking the code by saying that he had a strong emotional attachment to his Padawan?

    Remember, attachment is forbidden. And by loving Anakin like his own brother, there is certainly attatchment for Obi-Wan. Perhaps this is one of his failures as a Master that he recognises when he says that Anakin is a far greater Jedi than he could ever hope to become in the first half hour of the movie.

    Qui Gon also tells Obi Wan the same thing in TPM after taking Anakin into meet the council. If I remember right the exact quote is "I also foresee you becoming a much greater jedi than I.."

    In answer to Scoot, Ki-Adu-Mundi was on Mygeeto.

    I like Prodigiousman's thoughts on how Anakin's comments to Luke tie in with his actions in ROTS. In a sense then it was Luke's resistance, through his actions, that demonstrated to Vader that giving oneself to the Dark Side was not the only way to save loved ones. I agree with you - pure gold.

    The reference to Frankenstein was actually something I thought gave weight to the scene. This is an especially good device if you think about the relationship between creator (master) and beast in Frankenstein and then apply it to the Emperor and Vader. As for the 'Nooo', I think it's a tribute to ROTJ (that sense of confined helplessness that Luke felt).

    Edit:

    We're having a discussion about the Jedi distrust of passion in the 'Is the Dark Side bad?' thread. I think there is really some grey area here that Lucas wants to explore. Obi-Wan did say, after all, "I have failed you Anakin." I find it interesting that only the two Jedi who recognised their own weakness (Obi-Wan and Yoda) survived. I'm sure this is deliberate.

    but what about
    http://mgkhan.ytmnd.com/
    http://picard.ytmnd.com/
    or a quite recent addition
    http://silentfilmstarwars.ytmnd.com/

    actually, that last one is pretty funny.

    As for Star Wars, Obi-Wan's lines to Anakin on Mustafar, "You were my brother! I loved you!" are perhaps my most favourite lines out of the entire six episodes. Ki's insight, that Obi-Wan was admitting to attachment only makes me like that scene so much more. Anakin grew up knowing his mother, and therefore felt the lack of family attachments strongly as he trained as a Jedi. We can only assume that Obi-Wan was taken from his family at such as young age so as not to remember his family. His entire concept of family would have been built up by watching the rest of the universe live out life around him as he grew up in the Jedi Order. No doubt he would have interacted with many families over time. When Obi-Wan reveals that Anakin was like a brother to him, it's like he's gaining the only family he'll ever have and loosing it all in the same instance.

    Ive read a hint of this on the 3SA board, but does Obi-wans new call on the DVD of ANH sound a lil similar to Boga from Ep3?

    I really can't rememebr what she sounded like, its been a week since seeing the flick, but from memory, it sounds a little similar [face_worried]
