The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Ewan McGregor hates Star Wars
« on: March 18, 2008, 08:16 AM »
Maybe Ewan doesn't hate Star Wars.  A little video up on YouTube from an interview on BBC, where he speaks pretty positively of the experience.  I suppose it depends on the day.

In contrast to the other actors, I think ewan is more of the rare "I'm going to do a great job of acting regardless of the directing" type of actor, alla Johnny Depp or maybe even early Harrison Ford.  I'm sure like any job, there are things he liked and things he didn't like - I bet most of us would have contrasting opinons about our jobs depending on the day we were asked.  :-\

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Hayden Christensen hates Star Wars, too

To be fair, I think the special effects and storylines in Star Wars are great.  However, the acting is somewhat lacking in the prequels and I would chalk that up to poor directing.  Lucas is a great storyteller and visionary, but he isn't without flaws.  I think the movies would have turned out better if someone else had directed.

All that being said, its poor taste to rip someone or soemthing that helped build your career.  I would argue that even Natalie Portman benefitted from her work on Star Wars.

I read differently. Here

I thought the ratings were pretty strong from Entertainment Weekly.  I think it will be back.

There were lots of clues that Jin was flashing back, not forward - his old style cell phone, the "year of the dragon" bit at the toy store (last year of the dragon was 2000), the fact he was working for Paik Industries, his goofy haircut.

Wow, I missed a lot of this.   :-[  I even remember hearing that it was the year of the dragon, but didn't bother to look up when that actually was.  You've convinced me!

I was watching one of the last episodes of Season 3 tonight - the one where Charlie goes down to the Looking Glass hatch.  Desmond tells Charlie about his vision, where Charlie dies, but he also says that part of his vision is Claire and Aaron getting on a rescue helicopter.  I had completely forgotten about this.  If that's the case, Claire must at least make it to the helicopter.

Saw on the NFL Network last night that the Jets have signed a deal with Bubba Franks.  They're pulling in some good players.

Ha!  He's a great player - enjoy his non catches all next season.

Thanks Brian.  Walmart up here is selling them for $12.92 or something like that.  It's actually getting quite frustrating to see the discrepancies in pricing.  I know you guys have had to endure some significant price jumps in the last couple of years (ML for example) but for us it's been hard watching the Canadian dollar equalize and then pass the US greenbuck.  Our prices have remained stable and still higher than your stuff.  I was hoping we might see some equalization but I guess the only way that's happened is not having our prices go up.  Still, Marvel Legends at $14.95 and the DC stuff $3 more at major retailers is frustrating.  Same for Star Wars as Walmart up here just jacked prices by $1 to $9.44.  Blech.  No wonder my interest in toys is waning. 

That stinks.  I have no idea how your income and other taxes play out, but that's a big price discrpancy.  Would you save money just ordering from a US company and just paying the extra shipping to get it sent up North?  Even if you break even, you'd save on gas costs...

The only thing I liked in the trailer was the monkey.

How does how he "obviously" survive?

The way I saw it, he is either a) dead on the island or b) still alive on the island.  I think the date on the tombstone leaves his fate wide open...

If he is still on the island or dead, then they were doing a flash forward and flash back at the same time, which I don't think they've done before.  Not saying that can't be it, but I took the Jin/Sun scenes to both be set post rescue, which would mean that Jin is alive, but living a seperate life.  If that's the case, either Sun doesn't know he's still alive or she can't be with him for some reason, which would make her equally sad.  If they do know he's alive, seems kind of pointless to have them go to his grave. 

Obviously the writers have some plan to tie all this up, but I'm starting to get impatient to actually see it!

So, the final count on the Oceanic 6 - Jack, Kate, Hugo, Sayid, Aaron and Sun? Everyone in agreement?

Not the way I saw it at all.  I figured the six were Jack, Kate, Hugo, Sayid, Sun, and either Aaron or one more survivor.  No idea what the heck is up with Jin - he obviously survives, but maybe has amnesia?  Weird.  Keep thinking back to Jack's testimony where he said 8 survived the crash, but there is an "Oceanic 6," which must mean that two people's bodies are recovered and appear to have survived the crash, but are obvously dead before the rescue.  What I want to see is how they are going to get around reports that all of the bodies from the plane crash were recovered, but 6-8 other (some live) bodies have shown up, so who are the 6-8 extra dead people?

Yes, my posts have changed.  It would be ridiculous to just keep posting the same thing over and over again for years.    ;D
