A comment here would be too easy. Move along, move along ...
Well no one's saying that they can't watch the bloody movies.
Craig Kilbourne just now:
"A scene with the band NSYNC has been cut from the new Star Wars movie...."
(huge applause and cheering)
"...apparently even in a galaxy far, far, away, boy bands still suck"
who the hell is craig kilbourne?
This is genius publicity.
today's edition of 'the sun', britains best selling daily tabloid carries the story as well, under the headline n'sync r sunk. the report also namechecks theforce.net as the source of the complaints. publicity for star wars and this site. it's worked out beautifully.
Well now that the fans are officially in control of things where are our cuts of the profit?
The Late Late Show. After Letterman.
Some of you people need to realize that you s**t does stink too. So what if they had a small, far in the background cameo anyway?
So what if I dislike the idea of them being inthe film at all?
This is something that would have meant alot to them.
Oh, cry me a river already.
And if it was you it would have meant the world to you also.
Sure it would have. But here's the difference: I'm not a celebrity. No one would give a crap about my presence or absence from the movie.
But no because they're N'Sync you jealous fanboys get your panties in a bunch.
Why is it that people always try to wield the "you're jealous" argument? I just dislike them. They're talentless pseudo-singers who got a break they didn't deserve, or earn. I can name a hundred bands more deserving of success than them, easily. That's why I have such a problem with them appearing in the film. The other reason is that celebrity cameos are a ridiculous idea to begin with, especially from non-actors.
Honestly you people wonder why the rest of pop culture makes fun of hard core Star Wars fans like yourselves?
And we shoudl be concerned about this BECAUSE...
Seriously, I'm waiting. Why should the opinion of someone who likes tripe like N'Sync matter to me in the least? Is being a hardcore fan of a boy band cooler than being a hardcore fan of a movie? Sorry, I don't understand that logic.
Because the anwser is obvious to everyone but yourselves. Grow up and get a life.
Ok, friend. I want you to take a long, hard look at the rant you've posted. Doesn't it remind you of the angry posts the hardcore fans poisted when it was announced that N'Sync would be in the movie? What makes your fit of righteous anger any more valid than those of the bashers'?
Your opinion is welcome, and respected, but you should extend the same courtesy to those of us that disagree.
Others are. Maybe one day you will be someone that has enough clout to get into something you've always loved.
I'd rather earn my participation in a project I love than grovel for it.
The members of N'Sync are probably just as big of a Star Wars fan as you guys are.
Maybe they've even seen the films more times than some of you.
But just because they dont bitch and moan about every little detail about the films on internet messageboards like you guys makes them less of a fan?
No one's said that. If you're going to argue, base your arguments on the facts.
ps-- You don't know if they post on Star Wars message boards or not. I could be Lance, for all you know.
That makes no damn sense.
Your post? No, it doesn't.
The Star Wars films are for everybody not just whiney, insecure fanboys like yourselves. They're even for teen pop sensations. Remember that.
I feel a tear coming on. You should try to get a role in Billy Jack IV.
THE MEMBERS OF N'SYNC ARE: JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, JOEY FATONE,LANCE BASS, JC CHAVEZ AND KRIS KIRKPATRICK.
Actually, J.C.'s last name is Chasez.
Stop acting like you'll turn gay or something if you know their names.
On this, I can agree. Too many people pretend not to know anything about them when they can actually dance the entire coreography to "Pop."
I can honestly say I didn't know the N'Sync boys' names until I read the above post. I must be getting old, because if asked to name a boy band, I say New Kids on the Block -- and I still remember their names; Jordan Knight (dreamboat)..erm..Mark Wahlbergs brother..back when he was MArky Mark...Donnie someone I think...err...nevermind.
A-Ha forever!! The Take On Me video was genius!
Taaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake on meeeee, (take on me!) I'll be gooooone.... forever oooooooooooooooh!!
ANd I can't be bothered to PP, but I and some others did say it aint Oprah 'til it's Oprah, and that aint until GL makes the final edit, back when the N'Sync story broke.
remember, in death, the members of nsync have a name.
his name was justin timberlake
his name was justin timberlake
I loved PadmeBra's opening post to this thread!
Having said that....blah....it won't make a bit of difference in the movie if N'Sync, me, or New Kids are in AOTC. It will still rock.
Well done Jorus.
I second that.
<<They're talentless pseudo-singers who got a break they didn't deserve, or earn. I can name a hundred bands more deserving of success than them, easily. >>
That is BS. I hate that type of music like many people do. But this is a style of music, nor rock or punk or soul or rap. It is a style of music started by the tradition of barber shop quartets. Good singers, no instruments, no song writing. Sinatra did it, Martin did it, Menudo did it, etc, etc, etc, etc. How do you know they didn;t deserve it? You know how hard they had to work to get that gig? A good friend of mine is a singer, and those try outs and process is HELL. It is a nightmare and you have to wrok your ass off. And she is a great singer and still struggling. She sings that type of music. They have good singing voices. That is fact. If you don't like their voices or that style, that is a different thing. But anyone with a muscial ear can tell you that they can sing, even if their music is gay. And what do you know about their lives? I can tell you this, except for two of the guys, the others grew up in low income homes and struggled in life. So to say they do not deserve what their voices gave them is stupid.
My 2 cents.
The fact that many fans were basing their opinion of a film they have not even seen on a couple of extras is petty. These types of Star Wars fans are petty and it's evident that no matter how good the film is they are going to rip it apart for whatever reason.
So right, sdj. People have their daggers out for AOTC, and this gave them the excuse to start cutting. If it wasn't this it would have been something else. Anything would have done.
The crooner argument again? *yawn*
And what do you know about their lives?
Too much. I can tell you that Timberlake grew up outside of my home of Memphis, and takes every chance he can get to talk crap about how horrible and racist the city is, until we get a pro sports team; suddenly he's a local hero and mascot. He's a wretched little twerp and a garbage pop star. Yes, I know he wasn't one of the supposed guys in the cameos.
Stop comparing them to crooners. Rufus Wainwright and Harry Connick Jr. are crooners. N'sync is nausea, and that's really has nothing to do with why their cameo bugs me.
It was the title before this and Dooku's age before that.
i agree. but it amazes me. apart from the romance angle, this entire film sounds like fanboy heaven - hundreds of jedi, slave one etc..
PadmeBra - here's what I just heard on CBS' Late Late Show with Craig Kilborne (note additions to your earlier post):
"A spokesman for George Lucas announced that the scene with the band N'SYNC has been cut from the new Star Wars movie."
<applause and cheering from audience>
"Apparently even in a galaxy far, far, away, boy bands still suck."
<huge applause, cheering, laughter>
"Yeah! That's *exactly* how I feel about it."
Seriously - Kilbourne's reaction underlines what I have felt the last few days ... the regular posters here have vastly underestimated how sensitive the overwhelming majority of fans are about having *their* Star Wars universe messed with, especially when it comes to mixing Star Wars with things that fans feel are *uncool*.
The fans are too caught up in being "cool". They need to just relax and enjoy the films.
"I can't laugh at Jar Jar that would be uncool"
"Anakin was too kiddish (cuz he's a freakin' kid) that is uncool"
"Lord of the Rings is all dark and everyone else likes it. So I guess it's cool for me to like it too"
Arsenal: Well said.
sdj: I can't speak for others, but I have no axes to grind with AOTC, save the N'Sync issue. I quite liked TPM, and if what I've heard is any indication, AOTC will blow it out of the water. So no, I don't intend to bad-mouth Lucas or boycott the film based on a cameo.
son_of_the_tear: Your argument would be terrific... If the N'Sync kids could sing Wailing tunelessly like Justin does in "Gone" is not quality singing, I'm afraid.
This is the biggest non-issue ever and I'm ashamed to even be a part of this conversation anymore.
ohh, come on topgoalscorer! The romance angle in ESB is one of the coolest parts of the film. I'm not a romance film kind of person (some i really love, like Moulin Rouge, but most I am not impressed with) but I am really looking forwad to seeing Anakin and Padme falling for each other.
sdj: true they were concerns, but this one REALLY got people going. And it's over a little cameo, they may not even happen. The thing that gets me is, if after two hours, you can be pulled out of the film by a few background characters, then the film has failed for you already.
I'm so over this issue I'm not going to even dignify it with a response.
i agree. the romance will be cool. it's vital to the story. i was referring to the people who seem already to have 'issues' with the unfinished film. to me aotc will bend lotr over elronds prayer plinth and give it the rogering it deserves for being so overrated and soulless.
"Your argument would be terrific... If the N'Sync kids could sing Wailing tunelessly like Justin does in "Gone" is not quality singing, I'm afraid."
Ignorance is bliss...
