Dud.  Aside from a pretty screen, is there anything about New iPad that makes you go "WOW!!"?

Maybe they plan on working a Napoleon complex into a retconned backstory for Sandman...

"By Crabby Internet Fanbois" should be a sub-heading for this "list."  What a load of crap.  While some of these films as sequels don't live up to some of their earlier films' quality, some aren't THAT bad.  Any list that has IJ:KotCS and TPM so near the top has to be laughable.  To put either of these above any of the Transformers debacles, Battlefield Earth (UGH!!!!!), Catwoman or Batman and Robin is ridiculous.  THOSE are really crappy movies.

Also, and I know I am a voice in the wilderness on this, PLENTY of people liked TPM until it became "cool" to hate it and the box office shows it, even with the rerelease.  This would also apply to Titanic and DEFINITELY to Forrest Gump.

I liked this one better than the OT version.  Best part is the "Lots of Talking" line...

The Original Trilogy / Re: Long construction of the first Death Star

I also doubt the Empire was hiding the construction of the DSII from the alliance.  Remember, that just before they used the DS on Alderaan, the Emperor disbanded the senate.  Up until this point, he still had to "play nice" to an extent until his full military might was in place to take over every aspect of governing the citizens.

Cripes.  What started as a quick reply turned into the plot for Episode 3.5.  Lucas would be proud.

All caught up, and I have to say, this show gets better every week. 

That said, I can't say I really like any of the female characters in the show.  Lori is sort of like the anti-Kate Austin, dumb decisions, lots of crying.  Ugh.  Maggie is most interesting of them, but even that whole thing is sort of exhausting.  Lots of good observations here, and I can't wait for the new episode!

Discover the Force / Movie Heroes / Re: Movie Heroes Battle Packs

I said before this line launched that how that movie does will be very telling of this line's future, and I think the movie has done worse than they anticipated.
Not to beat a dead horse, but I think TPM3D did pretty much what they projected it would.  The BD is already planned for spring, so it doesn't sound like they expected this to sit in theaters for months and months...

Star Wars Universe / Re: 'Star Wars' in 3-D?

TPM was not projected to be #1 at the box office.  It is not a first-run film, it is not on as many screens (as Journey 2) and it is critically maligned.  I have read that TPM grossed just around what they projected it to.

That IS awesome.  LOL!

Dude, TPM did not "basically flop" It's the 5th highest money making film of all time.  It sold a sh#t ton of product.  The problem was that Hasbro and everyone thought it would sell a double-sh#t ton.

Quoted for truth.  Even this re-release did as good as they projected, better than the last 3D makeover, Disney's Beauty and the Beast.  That said, this toy will languish on shelves.

I read that too.  I don't think he makes a case, but he does bring up a few interesting points.

Went to see this on Friday.  I liked the 3D.  To me, the "in your face!" stuff is gimmicky 3d whereas using the technology to add depth to a scene works better, IMO at least.  I am in the minority of people that like this film.

AC is going "eeew!" in his mind.

This trailer has turned me around on this film a bit.  I did not like the casting of Garfield as Parker, but he seems to fit the bill, at least in this trailer.

I read once that one F-bomb gets a film a PG-13 rating, and two is an automatic R.  Not sure if that holds water.
