TV-9D9 / Re: Clone Wars Movie Reviews - SPOILER Thread
« on: August 16, 2008, 01:55 AM »
I thought it was good not great. i didn't like The words Stinky, Snips, Skyguy, and Artoo'ie. it didn't ruin it for me but it was just eh :/ Ziro really didn't bug me that much. i agree "an "eccentric" Hutt was a neat idea"

Actually one of my favorite things was the battle droids and the lines they had. lol. like the one that asked ventress about telling the count she failed, and she just flings him off the cliff.

I thought the style of everything was pretty cool. some of the little additions like the epoies outside jabbas palace.

The story was ok, but i've read alot better clone war stories in the comics. I liked what i saw in the preview of the TV series so i think once it hits tv we might start seeing some really cool stuff. Alot of it does feel kid friendly and that's ok. comparing it to the story from the cartoon network series though i think they did a better job on that.

As far as asoka goes i hope she just leaves the order and goes into hiding or something. I get the feeling though from the way they talk about anakin learning how to let things go that she ends up dead toward the end of the tv show.

well i was lucky enough to get a dharma interview at sdcc. i passed and they gave me a member card. they said a new test would be up on Monday, but it's already like 2 weeks later and still nothing. maybe only new sign ups get a test right now.

hey all. sorry i didn't write anymore while i was at the con. i took my laptop on Friday to all the starwars events, but the net wasn't able to connect. i figured people were really dragging down on the free net. anyways by now i figure you have seen and heard about all the starwars stuff. still I'll share a few things. :)

lucky for us we we able to get the marriot which was pretty built into the con.



once again at this years hasbro presentation they started late so they had to rush through the presentation. all the new stuff was at the end. The new muggs were the coolest thing to me. no Q&A at all  :roll:

At the big starwars event in hall H they had a few really cool clips to show. They showed 2 really spoiler-ish force unleashed cut scenes. then a clip of a battle scene from the clone wars film, and even better a clip from a luminara themed episode from the fall series. Oh i did starwars trivia again this year. I didn't win, but it was still fun.

Some of the best panels i went to were Heroes. They showed the full first hour of the 2 hour season 3 episode. which was awesome! The whole cast was there too.



I was able to get a Dharma interview and i passed so i was pretty much sold on going to the LOST panel over the office panel which i was sad to miss. matthew fox was a suprise guest and they gave out all kinds of cool stuff to question askers. i didn't get to ask one though.



It's always sunny in Philly was really great too. we got to see a new episode. Mac and Dennis: Manhunters :) I also got to meet, shake hands, and talk to charlie day, Glenn Howerton, and Rob McElhenney. Also one of the coolest things i got to do was do a promo for sunny in Philly where they asked me why i liked the show, who my favorite character was, and favorite episode. When i said "Charlie goes America" the camera man asked for a rock, flag, and eagle shout. So i think that might land me on FX :) lol



I met so many more people this year then last year. I spent about 30 minutes talking to Scott Adsit from 30 rock at this adult swim party we were able to get into on Friday night. At the same party they had all kinds of free food which was a nice break from all the big tabs we ran up at the rest of places we went like hooters. Also one of the most memorable moments was one my friends that was with us jumped up on stage with David banner and was rapping all over the place. David banner even handed him $200! lol

you can watch the video here.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhtjkD6Df9U BEWARE it does have CURSING so i'm not sure how long until it's deleted. you can see me just on the right side on the screen up right in front of the stage.

Me with Scott Adsit


I was also able to meet and talk with clonewars director Dave Filoni and writer Henry Gilroy. Ray park, Seth green, The RZA, Sam Jackon said what's up to me, and some pretty cool costumed people.

Me with with clonewars director Dave Filoni


I got autographs from Dave Filoni, Henry Gilroy, Quinton Flynn, and Michael Hollick who plays niko from gta4 who was a really nice guy. well pretty much everyone i met was cool. Hollick signed both my game case and on the last day my hat. really cool he wrote "Life can complicated" :)

I really hooked up my friend Joel and this crazy timeline fell into place. I went to the fringe panel where JJ Abrams announced 3 winners of a autographed bat robot statue. my firend was named he wouldn't of found out otherwise. he went to pick it up and then on the way to hotel he ran into JJ. crazy eh? :)



I stood in alot more lines this year too. i had to get my daughter the pony this year so from about 7am to 11am i was in 3 diffrent lines all for hasbro toyshop. on preview night i spent a good hour and a half in 3 lines to put together a joker Lego in order to get a batman one with a box. The heroes line was rather long too. it went all the way around the convention center 2 hours before it started.

anyways this year was even better than last year. Got a ton of cool posters, stuff, and all the meet and greets. I did get con crud :/ but i didn't let it hold me back. next year i want to work on getting sketch's as my new addition to the experience. i'll post some pics of stuff on the floor a little later.

hello from the con in san diego  i thought i'd take a break real quick to tell a little bit about the con so far. i got to shake the rza's hand and sam jackson said "what's up man" to me at the samurai jack pannel. I spent a good amount of time yesterday interviewing for the dharma and i passed!  now i'm really invested in going to the LOST Pannel. i'm going to run as fast as possible to the office hopefully i don't get turned away. spent a good amount of time this morning in line for the hasbrotoyshop to get my daughter the my little pony. got a few pretty cool starwars masks for free. anyways i'll have pics and stuff on sunday or monday to share

well sdcc week is finally here!  once again my funds are low this year, and the clonewar launch on top of it this time around. not sure i can even afford all the exclusives :/ We were lucky enough to get into the marriott right next door so that's really helpful.

any other JD'ers attending? maybe i'll see ya around. The starwars trivia event on friday is pretty fun. i won a round last year. :)
