I was going to go tonight, but my Mrs wanted me to stay in. Then she started an argument about something that happened eight months ago. F**king  great.

The negative reviews have been grossly over the top. This is a good little feature length pilot episode for a TV show. The Hutt everyone is attacking is totally deserving, but outside of that this was a lot of fun I thought.

Lucas just shot himself in the foot throwing it on a big screen and up'ing the focus on it. If this had just hit tv as originally intended I think it would have been received quite well.

I wanna see this, but the reviews have been so bad no one wants to go with me. Oh well, there's always blu-ray.

It's actually not that bad. Pretty much what I was expecting from four episodes of a TV show stitched together. Quite a lo of action, the dynamic between Anakin and his new Padawan was quite good, and it passed the time. Not Earth-shatteringly great, but decent enough entertainment.

That's what I'm trying to tell people, it's the pilot of a kids show, NOT a movie - but they don't listen or care Sad

And looking at the range of books that just came out for the show, what's coming up all looks pretty promising.

I saw it 2 weeks ago at a prescreening...hung over like a mother...in a theater full of noisy kids...and the worse part was I actually didnt even care the kids were so noisy because this movie was BAD, it was like watching one of those cheap cg nick jr. morning shows...worse day of my life to make a long story short.

I kinda have no real motivation to see this. At first I was all about bring my FX saber to the midnight and everything that goes along with that. But it just looks kinda mediocre. I'll see it eventually, but it's all just kinda.... bleh.

Technically it's both but I won't go into details. I went to see it because I won an advanced screening but I didn't like it so much. The Clone Wars mini-series that aired on Cartoon Network was pretty cool though.

It was intended as an episodic show and Lucas just decided to release a few of them strung together as a film. If you really want to be technical I guess you can say that it is a film because it was released theatrically, but it was never intended as such (and it shows).

It Takes More Time And Effort To Type This Way. Besides, You'll Have To Learn How To Type Properly Eventually... Y'Know, Proper Grammar And All.


As for the topic at hand, I may see this this week, but I'm not expecting very much. I mean, I've seen every Star Wars film opening day (prequels), and it's been out over a week now... I think that says a bit about my enthusiasm for it.

You said George Lucas was involved with another Star Wars related scriptSad That idea alone brings up nightmarish imagery.

So how do you function in the world not being able to type properly?

Like, for either school or work, you'll eventually have to type something if you haven't already.

This isn't a sarcastic question or anything, it is relatively serious.

Obviously your shift key is working, otherwise you would be in either all caps or all lower case.

So stop holding down the shift key for every new word. That's a bad habbit, and all it's going to do is slow your typing speeds down, and make it much more difficult for you to type up a report for school or a professional letter at work, or cover letters/resume/etc for job applications.

If you don't go to school, don't have a job, and don't plan on ever applying for a job, by all means, feel free to continue typing like a silly person.  Just know that every time you type something--anything--anyone who reads it is going to spend a lot more time trying to figure out why the hell you capitalize every single word than they are going to spend listening to what you have to say.

Don't mean to be rude about it or anything, but if you honestly can't stop doing that, someone's got to tell it to you straight.
