Jedi would be a fun episode. II and III are too boring to riff on, and IV/V are too good. And I hope their Animation Damnation is Droids. The Clone Wars movie is too dull to have fun with. The animation is bad too, but just in a cheap way and not a horrifying one like Foodfight.

Jedi has the absolute worst changes (IV has the funniest), so if they do it I look forward to what will piss them off the most.

I love the terrible names Lucas comes up with. Here's more examples:

quote:

A similar situation arose with Star Wars: The Force Unleashed’s protagonist, Starkiller. “[That name] was only supposed to be a nickname or call sign, not a proper name from the beginning,” a former LucasArts employee says. The development team hoped that Lucas would give Vader’s apprentice a Darth moniker, which at the time, was something that didn’t happen often.

“The team threw a Hail Mary to George, saying the game would have more credibility if the apprentice had a ‘Darth’ title,” a Force Unleashed team member says. Lucas agreed that this situation made sense for Sith royalty, and offered up two Darth titles for the team to choose from. “He threw out ‘Darth Icky’ and ‘Darth Insanius.’ There was a pregnant pause in the room after that. People waiting for George to say ‘just kidding,’ but it never comes, and he just moved on to another point.”

quote:

When Fracture was revealed to the public, its protagonist was a character named Mason Briggs. By the time the game launched, his name was changed to Jet Brody. A person who helped give this gun-toting rebel his original name recalls going through weeks of naming conventions. “Literally, whole teams sitting together, brainstorming what looks good – the first name, the last name, etc. Done, good to go.”

But then a phantom menace struck. George Lucas would periodically check in on the status of the games his company was making, lending creative input and advice. The developer I talked to sighs, and agitatedly says, “In one viewing of Fracture, [Lucas] said it looked really good, but he didn’t like [Mason Briggs’] name. We’re like, ‘What do you mean, George?’ He responded to the effect of, ‘It doesn’t really fit. When he jumps on stuff, he moves pretty fast. I like B.J. Dart.’

From here.

She asks something along the lines of, "Luke Skywalker really exists?" and later learns all the legends about him are true. I felt that was enough. I'm sure Luke's exploits in Jabba's palace are famous, and he tried the mind trick multiple times during that.

On a different subject about Rey: Luke was a sheltered farmboy that seemed over his head just by the Mos Eisley cantina. Rey is someone who had to survive on her own, and her only parental figure was a weird alien who didn't give a poo poo about her. I think it's all right that she is more immediately capable than Luke was.

Edit: wow thought I was in a completely different thread. Star Wars chat is everywhere man.

They probably get constantly harassed by MRAs so I don't blame them for still referencing it. President Five Dollar Footlong would never approve of such behavior.

My favorite thing about it is how hard he's trying to be sensitive and thoughtful while simultaneously tearing down people whose only crime is having a porn persona he dislikes.

"I don't want some disgusting dumb bitch that's normally in porn. I value women so I want a girl who really thinks, you know? I want her to say 'Han Shot First' before she has sex strictly for my personal enjoyment"

When I was a teenager I watched The Warriors every day for a week straight. I just really liked the movie...

Oh and I'm totally gonna be disappointed if December's theme isn't Kevin Smith. It'd be very cathartic for me as someone who was obsessed with him, but eventually got tired of his whole shtick. Whatever they pick will still be good though.

Eric's humor can be very dry, so he can be an acquired taste. I also feel when he really didn't like a movie he's the most depressed during recording (I don't blame him, some of the poo poo they watch is truly miserable). He makes up for this by being completely on fire for movies he adores (Cyber Seduction, Highlander 3, two of my fav eps). I like him a lot and appreciate his recent fantasy novel obsession.
