And get this: Anakin
turns out to be Darth Vader!

Well, I'm embarrassed to admit that it took me seven weeks to do it, but I finally saw "Star Wars Episode III" today. And I'd just like to thank George Lucas for realizing what the people wanted and actually giving it to us. Yes, I'm talking about more scenes of Yoda kicking Sith butt. And Wookiees. Lots and lots of Wookiees.

In fact, the only suggestion I have would be to release a special edition with all footage of Natalie Portman replaced with a different actress speaking different dialogue. Almost anybody would do -- I might suggest splicing in Sissy Spacek from "Coal Miner's Daughter."

By the way, I get that the Sith are supposed to be Republicans, but exactly who is the Emperor? I think I've got it narrowed down to Rumsfeld and Jeane Kirkpatrick.

I have to be honest, I don't like Star Wars. But, I do like Triumph the Insult Comic Dog taking apart all the nerd in line for Star Wars. And many of them are Republicans. Even tastier.

You're funny.

Ok Ok, now funny is funny but lets not pick on the republicans. I'm not a big starwars fan but lets leave it as starwars? Please. It's just one more thing I'm gonna have to try and digest today! Thanks. Still funny!

I am a HUGE fan of the original Star Wars trilogy. So, I was broken hearted each time a new one was released. This last one s*cked less than the other two, but I didn't think it was at all close to what it could have been...so sad...

So we all wanted to see wookies and yoda kicking butt...but when the two were put together in the movie it made no sense...the wookies served no purpose outside of just letting fans realize Chewbacca is old...over all the movie in my eyes and many people who saw it where I live, think it was a failure.

I think The Eminemperor is supposed to be Condoleeza Rice - I mean check out the comparison in their dental work.

Also, the wookiees were in the movie for like 10 seconds, and basically their only point was so that Lucas could put WOOKIEES in the movie.

I thought Natalie Portman was fine for the role, it is the guy who played Anakin who should have been replaced. The love story was hard to buy into. I think it is hilarious that you think the Sith's are supposed to be Republicans.

I've actually been watching the "original" Star Wars trilogy and I think it is a little weird that these movies made 30 some odd years ago are so much more entertaining and well-done than these last 3...or first 3...or whatever order. I'm a personal fan of the Wookies, Ewoks, and Han Solo.

That single Triumph clip making fun of star wars is better, worth more to the world, than all the star wars films combined.

Star wars has become the pinnacle of what ruined film today: money and special effects in the place of acting and a story. Horrible, horrible films which are a total waste of money and time.

The only thing good to come from star wars was the computer game JDK.

Funny post I enjoyed it. About the Sith/Republican thing. I just wish Lucas could have made it with less commentary on politics and more emphasis on the battle scenes. Overall I liked this final film.

Zek said...

What do you mean that you "get that the Sith are supposed to be Republicans", if Lucas was trying to draw that comparison he is an idiot.

ALL I WANT TO KNOW IS....Where are the damned EWOKS???

Bubaloo said...

My guess is that Palpatine is supposed to be Rove (the mastermind) and Darth Vader is supposed to be Bush (his not-so-smart pupil), or something like that. Frankly, I think whenever Lucas tries to put more politics in the movies they get bogged down. I loved Revenge of the Sith, but could have done without some of the real world comparisons. We have documentaries for that.
