    First topic for me then, haven't seen this one one the Midlands boards, although please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Who do you guys think was best when it came down to life and death battles?

    I'm sure that TPM is probably a sore point with many of us (meesa sorreee), but I felt that after Qui-Gon bit the saber so to speak, that whole battle really kicked off, great choreography and fast too, under pressure Obi-Wan McGregor turned out some great moves.

    You must say what you feel is right, of course.

    Tell me about it, I have trouble with just the one.

    Watched ROTS last night, couldn't resist slowing down that last fight(for 2 HOURS!!!)

    That really puts all the work these guys do into perspective, I have trouble believing it's choregraphy, man I would love to meet Nick Gillard.

    Check out Ray Park on youtube, the guy behind Maul is cool, and there's loads of other tutorials on how to look cool with a saber, but then you all knew that already, right?:rolleyes:

    yer i did the slow mo on one part of the anakin/obi-wan fight where they stop and seem to roles each others lightsabers or something. if u slow it down it looks nothin like what they actually do but cus of the lightsaber effect it looks reli reli reli difficult and complicated etc lol

    Oh yeah, but when does watching turn to 2 hours straight, swinging the saber until you think you have it down, only to watch it (again) and realise you don't!

    Back to the question in hand, should we have had more Maul, or was there not enough Yoda?

    agreed. Yoda could whupp Palpy's arse with the Force alone, no need for a lightsaber in that one.

    From the movies, I'd say Obi-wan is the best lightsaber-fencer, although he hints that Anakin is better....


    yeah, lightsaber fighting is one thing I really wish I could actually devote time to.

    Me too, I just don't seem to have the time at the moment, but they do have pride of place on my wall!
