Hey Jeff, what is an UltraScreen?  I don't think I've heard that term before.

The local theater chain opened a brand new screen for the debut of Episode 3 - UltraScreen.

Marcus UltraScreen

It's basically a screen that is 75ft wide and 32 ft tall with a kick-ass digital sound system.

The huge screen was nice, but the sound system they had totally blew me away.  I've seen 3 movies there now and the sound for each has been phenomenal!

I will pass too on the vinyl Fett.  I don't have the first one and it's just one moer thing to collect.   :-\

I'll save my money for the Series 4 chase figures...  ;)

Mon Mothma (cut from film, maybe in the background and I missed it)

She was in one scene, walking down the hallway on the Tantive with Bail and two other people.

That was Bail's assistant I thought

Yeah Scott, the gal on Tantive IV was not Mon Mothma.

The only place Mon Mothma can really be seen is in the group of Senators who greet Anakin and Palpy when they land at the Senate (after the crash).

So Far,

#1 - UltraScreen
#2 - regular movie screen

I'd like to see it at a Digital Screening, so that's at least once more planned trip to RotS.

My fourth deal with everyone's favorite Canucklehead from Saskatsewnaaweenawan...  :)

I sent Jesse yet another box of RotS loot and he sent along lightning quick payment. 

I hope you enjoy the latest box of RotS Loot, Jesse!   ;)


The Prequel Trilogy / Re: The Slaughter of the Padawans

This scene was very well done and got the best reaction of any of the Anakin is Darth scenes...well done

I'm not afraid to admit, I got a little misty when that little guy said "Master Skywalker, there are too many of them what are we going to do" and then Anakin lights up his Saber.

Poor little Younglings...  :'(

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Jedi Homing Beacon

I kinda thought it was just a convienient way to get Obi-Wan and Yoda to go back to the temple. 

It gave them an excuse to go back there even though it was not a wise thing to do.  That way, they get to see the security video and the dead bodies and it re-inforces the "crap, Anakin went bad" point to Obi-Wan. 

I didn't really think about the TV implications, but you could very well be right about that - it kinda lends a point to why/how the other Jedi knew to go into hiding even though their instict would have been to rally around Yoda and Ben to fight the Sith.

Long enough apparently for Obi to forget about Leia.  This was one aspect that really sort of irritated me in ROTS.  Obi is there for the birth of the children, they have the conversation regarding where to take Luke AND Leia after they are born.  Obi knows about Leia.  Yet in ESB Obi states that boy is our last hope to which Yoda replies no, there is another.  You all know it well.  How is that resolved? >:(

I think Obi-Wan says that because Luke had been trained by them, while Leia hadn't.  Realistically at that point, he was the last hope they had in Obi-Wan's point of view because he knew how much potential Luke had.  Ben had been able to watch over Luke and watch him develop, but he had no idea if Leia was even capable of being trained. 

Maybe that exchange was Yoda's way of reminding Obi-Wan that if they had to, they could start over with Leia if Luke got bumped off?  Yoda's way of letting Ben know that Leia too was connected to the Force like Luke.


The Prequel Trilogy / C-3PO, R2-D2, and "Droids"
« on: May 20, 2005, 10:58 AM »
At the end of RotS, Bail asks for 3PO's mind to be wiped so he'd forget everything...


1. Does this totally render the Droids cartoon into "other universe" non-canon?  3PO goes right into service on Tantive 4 and stays there for 20 years?


2. Is the Droids cartoon some kind of "false memory" they give 3PO?  Maybe they were worried that he needed the false memories to help him deal with the wipe and still allow him to keep some kind of a bond with R2-D2?  The memories give him a sense that him and R2 have had adventures without him knowing the truth about it...

Preponderances?  ;)


I look at it this way (with only 14 hours post-viewing to develop my theory)...

The Sith created Anakin through an "evil" manipulation of the Force.  Whether it was Plagius or Sidious, I don't know for sure.  I think it's safe to say that the movie implied that Anakin was created by one of them...

Because he was created by the Force by means of Sith manipulation, I think that is why, as Jesse pointed out, Qui-Gon found Anakin by "chance".  I think that the Force lead the Jedi to find Anakin in some sort of attempt to save him from his Dark Destiny. 

It's like the Force knew that this poor kid was doomed unless someone could intervene to try to save him.  Maybe if he was able to get some Jedi Training then there would be some semblance of "good"" in him, a sense of "right" would be instilled in him.

Eh, who knows...


Brent, weren't you around when one of our group mentioned their tale of how they got a bunch of the cases, but realized that the C3 volunteer forgot to give them the corresponding BACKS?  They had to march back into the store and explain the problem to someone to finally get the corresponding case backs.  I forget who that was that it happened to now though...

That was Dale!  He was all happy to get his figures and almost left without the Star Case backs!  :-X

He marched right back to the guy and let him have it!   ;)

BTW, how many of your passes do I still have?


You still have my 4-day pass...  :(


The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Which Clone is Commander Bly?
« on: May 19, 2005, 09:18 AM »
Like I said earlier, I would guess this is something the Official Site will clarify in the next few days (ala the Clone Colors in AOTC)

I agree.  They've already given us a Databank update on the ships in the opening sequence of RotS, and the latest update is a look at the "Rebel Alliance" Senators (most all of whom ended up on the cutting room floor).

I'd expect there to be a Clone & Commander Update in the next month...
