Watto's Junk Yard / The Death of PC Gaming
« on: December 28, 2009, 12:07 PM »
Here is an interesting discussion. With the creation of the ps3, xbox360, iphone and DS, do you think PC gaming is on its way out? When was the last time you bought and or played a PC game?

Personally, I havn't bought a pc game in years. I play my DS alot more than anything I have installed on my PC except for MAME. It's just a lot more convinent and conforable to play on the couch then being stuck infront of my PC's monitor. It's also great to play games on the big flat screen wirelessly than on a computer monitor with cables. Do you guys keep state of the art gaming PCs?

The Prequel Trilogy / CG Yoda in TPM
« on: October 2, 2009, 10:58 AM »
I went to Star Wars in Concert last night. Great show but only seemed to be about 2/3rd full. Anyway, during a few scenes they showed the shots of little Anakin from TPM being interviewed by the Jedi Council. The Yoda in the scene was CG. Interesting to see those rumored scenes there.

The Prequel Trilogy / Why would Lars take in baby Luke?
« on: August 20, 2009, 12:13 PM »
I was thinking about this the other night. What was the conversation like between Obiwan and Owen Lars about taking in Anakin's child? Did Obiwan tell Owen what happen to Anakin? If he did, why would Owen put himself and his wife at risk if Vader found out his son was alive? At the end of ROTS we see Owen and Breu very happy to see Obiwan and accept the baby. What made Owen become so negative towards Obiwan? Why didn't Obiwan just raise the baby by himself or at least setup an agreement to train Luke as he grew up?

The Prequel Trilogy / The always charming Jake Lloyd
« on: July 25, 2009, 01:16 PM »
Wow! After watching the recent Yahoo interview with Jake Lloyd, I like to put him on our unofficial dead pool list. That is one depressed sarcastic kid. Oh woe is me, I was made fun of in high school for ruining ep1. Well, guess what. You did! I still look at those screen tests on the ep1 dvd and wonder why they chose the worst one. Didn't George see Jingle all the way?

A friend of a friend is selling this life size Yoda for $200. I believe its the ep1 Pepis statue. Anyone want it? The statue is in Orange County California.

Watto's Junk Yard / Life on Mars
« on: September 16, 2008, 09:57 AM »
I saw a commerical for Life on Mars last night. This is basically about a police officer that wakes from a coma to find he is in the '70s but weird things keep happening around him. He can't figure out if he is dreaming or really there.

I'm surprised they are doing an american version of this show. I wonder if they are going to use the same scripts. It kind of looked like it from the commerical. I wonder if the new Sam character will wake up at the end of the season and turn into the Master on Doctor Who like the British one did.

« on: September 11, 2008, 10:48 AM »
Paramount Pictures has gotten Gore Verbinski(the Pirates films) to direct an animated film called "Rango" with Johnny Depp as the main character and a script by John Logan("The Aviator", "Sweeny Todd" and "Gladiator")...

Animation to be provided by ILM. Hmmm...

Watto's Junk Yard / Classic board games thread
« on: August 22, 2008, 10:24 AM »
With the talk of a new version of Clue coming out, I thought I would start a thread about some classic board games that I loved as a kid. Starting out is one that was kind of creepy and unusual.

There was a game I had back in the mid '70s called Seance. Players would bid on dead Uncle Everett's possessions and the high bidder listens to instructions from their dead Uncle via a record (played on the record player hidden in the deck.) When all the items have been bid on and acquired, the record in the desk in turned over and Uncle Everett tells the players what each of the items is worth or how is due in taxes for the item. The player with the most cash at the end of the game is the winner.

I wish I still had this game. A working version of the game is suppost to be extreemly rare due to the technology used back then.

The Prequel Trilogy / Is Yoda a coward?
« on: July 23, 2008, 02:16 PM »
After all the mistakes we see Yoda make during the prequal trilogy, Yoda goes into hiding. Shouldn't he have tried to get in contact with the surviving Jedi, regroup and retrain to go against the Emporer and Vader?

The Prequel Trilogy / ROTS soundtrack
« on: July 23, 2008, 01:09 PM »
What are your opinions of the ROTS soundtrack? For the most part I though it was pretty good but not as good as it should have been. The creepy music when Anakin is talking to Palpy is good and the Battle of the Heros music was good but not as good as the Duel of the Fates.

However, why is the throne room from ANH in the end credits? What does this have to do with anything? At the end, everything ends on a dark note, then we hear the "we beat the empire music" from the next movie. Why?

The Prequel Trilogy / Are the Jedi anti-jedi?
« on: July 22, 2008, 05:51 PM »
Just listening to a podcast that was discussing AOTC. Looking at all the things that the Jedi missed like red lightsabers popping up everywhere and someone building a clone army, shouldn't the Jedi be seeing these things and put two and two together and do what is good for the galaxy early on instead of wondering what is going on during the clone wars and doing nothing?

Why do the Jedi act stupid and not realize what is really going on and who is really pulling the strings? Why do the Jedi go and attack separtist planets without finding peaceful methods to resolve problems? Why do they cheat at dice games and bend Gungan minds to their needs? Why make the gungans fight and die against the droid army while they, for the most part, safely go into the palace to find the viceroy? Why do the jedi give contradicting messages about using your feelings and ignore them to Anakin? Do the Jedi ever consider that the Republic might really be broken and the Separists might be right?

Everything they do seems to be completely anti-Jedi morals and ethics.
