if only they where to make more of this kinda style of star wars ( not the fct that it's an anime but the fact that it's dark) but the fact that it's dark and makes the bad guys look evil and it's been a long time that star wars did it right

It's too late bro. You can't just undo Episode I. Not even a re-re-re-remastered re-re-re-release of the original trilogy can save Star Wars at this point.

True, the quality was pretty good but it was just a space battle. I don't see how that equals saving Star Wars

I guess I'm not the anime fan I used to be:P

Star Wars has needed "saving" since Epi1+, but that animation, though impressive, is far from saving anything. It's just a long action sequence, no content.

No it hasn't. I might not like it, but the fact is I'm not the audience it's aimed at, even if I did grow up with the originals. We put the originals up on a pedestal because we grew up watching them. They're associated with fond childhood memories. People cling to childhood memories their entire lives since childhood is such a wonderous, innocent and joyful time. Most people are never as happy as they were during childhood, so anything associated with that is above reproach, sacred even. The fact is that 'Star Wars' has always been a space opera aimed mainly at children, inspired by the ones that George Lucas watched during his childhood. We criticise the newer stuff because we expect it to appeal to us as adults the same way the originals did when we were children. If we hadn't seen the originals as kids, if we first watched them as adults they wouldn't appeal to us ether.

Star Wars is beyond saving at this point. The prequel trilogy and the changes Lucas made to the original trilogy did to Star Wars what the iceberg did to the Titanic.

George Lucas would have to die for it to even have a 1% chance at being restored to its former glory.

Star Wars doesn't need saving. The prequels are not important enough to actually damage the franchise. The fans just love to b*tch and moan. All that was necessary was Anakins becoming of Vader which was Ep.3. Most of the story can be predicted just by watching the last of the prequel trilogy anyway.

No, it's not childhood bias, I saw Epi1 when I was 11, and Epi4-6 when I was 18. The prequels 'are' bad movies, while the older ones are actually 'good' movies. I'm not going to bother getting into this (tired) but I'll give you a link to something.

Actually Star Wars does need to be saved, it needs to be saved from George Lucas. Currently only one release of the Original Star Wars trilogy actually contains the 100% un-edited theatrical cuts of Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, and that version is now out of print and the films were poor laserdisc rips. Star Wars is ruined more and more with each release, with uncessary and out of place special effects, line changes, voice over and actor changes. Ironic considering that in 1988 George Lucas gave a long and thought provoking speach to Congress on why film needs to be preserved, and that colourizing Black and White films was a crime against art, and called those who alter films permnantly barbarians.

I thought there were female stormtroopers? as for the rest I agree, tie bombers and Y wings were not made for dogfighting

due to the fact that everyone wears the same armor its impossible to determine if any are females. but given the fact that the complete roster of the origional troopers were male and that they needed to fit into any suit changes id say its impossible for us to say anything less than the entire imperial military was male. there were 0 sighting and nothing but well placed hints as to everyone being male. of course they started taking in non-humans into the imperial forces eventually and non-clones but id say its pretty well impossible for them to at all have a female in the roster. based on all we know.

Reading and comprehension, I said "tired". As in, I went to bed after typing that post. (prick)

1. Characters

  • Han Solo - Rogue, kindhearted
  • Qui Gon - The "wise" master, (who runs in foolhardy, and never thinks things through)
  • Ben Kenobi - The wise master
  • Obi Wan - The "headstrong" apprentice (who is calm and thinks through every situation)
  • Leia - Strong, intelligent, leader
  • Queen Amidala - ?

2. Plot holes: Epi1

  • Why didn't they destroy the Jedi ship when it was in the hanger 'with' the Jedi in it? They seem to have no 'real' need for an ambassador to be on board in the first place.
  • How did the droid notice that the ambassadors were Jedi Knights?
  • Why didn't they use Carbon Monoxide to kill the Jedi, instead of Diaoxin? Clear, no smell vs white crap.
  • Why didn't they just leave them in the room for a half hour while they died from the gas?
  • Why was a 'Trade' Federation blockading a planet, shouldn't they want to 'Trade'?
  • What offer did Palpatine make to the Trade Federation to get them to do something so absurd?
  • Why is it that the Trade Federation is so militaristic?
  • (when using the lightsaber to cut through the door), how come Obi/Qui were able to run so fast, and never were able to do so again in the movie?
  • How could a giant droid ship not have any cameras, especially on the landing craft? Easily some of the worst designed militiary equipment in the history of war.

--- End Section 1
((section2) skipping gungan crap)

  • Why didn't they kill the Queen and forge her signature, to "make it legal"? They don't seem to need her for much else.
  • Why aren't they actually killing the citizens? Does it really matter?
  • Why do they guard everything with the Droids, which are clearly utterly ineffectual in guarding vs Jedi? (kill them?)
  • Why did they guard the pilots right 'next' to their ship?
  • Why didn't they destroy the ship while it was on the ground?
  • When they got on the ship, they were invincible with the shields, so why when it fell, did it not come back up 'before' getting past the Trade ship? They were in the clear, by the time the shields were back up.
  • Why did they hold a stupid ceremony for R2D2, he's a droid, a tool.

--- End Section 3
I'll stop here on this. And no, before you say anything, this isn't a simple nitpick, good movies aren't so poorly thought out.

3. If SW is a little kids movie, then why in Epi1 does it deal with such boring politics all the time?

In all fairness, the original trilogy had more than its share of dumb moments too. The entire trilogy started out with R2-D2 and C-3PO getting away when Vader's forces failed to blast the escape pod out of the sky. And don't even get me started on the asinine stuff that went on in Return of the Jedi. Not that I'm defending the prequels or anything, but none of the Star Wars movies (except for Empire Strikes Back) were exactly masterpieces.

1. Characters

  • Han Solo - Rogue, kindhearted
  • Qui Gon - The "wise" master, (who runs in foolhardy, and never thinks things through)

I don't recall any of that. In fact I recall him doing quite the opposite.

  • Obi-Wan - The wise master
  • Obi Wan - The "headstrong" apprentice (who is calm and thinks through every situation)

He is calm, but he clearly doesn't think every situaton through (especially about Anakin).

  • Leia - Strong, intelligent, leader
  • Queen Amidala - ?

The loving queen who stops at nothing to ensure the safety of her people. Who is kindhearted to keep a little boy happy after leaving his mother. Who sets aside her own beliefs to go to war against the enemy who invaded her planet? Yeah, totally nothing.

2. Plot holes: Epi1

  • Why didn't they destroy the Jedi ship when it was in the hanger 'with' the Jedi in it? They seem to have no 'real' need for an ambassador to be on board in the first place.

Because Sidious hadn't order the Vicory to kill them yet. After the ship landed the Trade Federation found out they were Jedi, causing them to call Sidious for advice.

  • How did the droid notice that the ambassadors were Jedi Knights?

The probably told the droid because they were sent there to force a settlement, not to negotiate.

  • Why didn't they use Carbon Monoxide to kill the Jedi, instead of Diaoxin? Clear, no smell vs white crap.

They underestimated the Jedi, the Viceroy believed the Diaoxin would kill them

  • Why didn't they just leave them in the room for a half hour while they died from the gas?

Because they thought the Jedi were dead. "The must be dead by now. Destroy what's left of them."

  • Why was a 'Trade' Federation blockading a planet, shouldn't they want to 'Trade'?

They were protesting the taxsation of trade routes, and were manipulated by Darth Sidious. They're very greed, even to the point that they would invade a planet and kill it's people over taxes. This is all explained in the opening.

  • What offer did Palpatine make to the Trade Federation to get them to do something so absurd?

Darth Sidious is also Senator Palpatine, so he could have very well told them he has power in the senate and that he would help them with the taxsation of trade routes.

  • Why is it that the Trade Federation is so militaristic?

They were there to blockade a planet, why wouldn't they have an army?

  • (when using the lightsaber to cut through the door), how come Obi/Qui were able to run so fast, and never were able to do so again in the movie?

May due with being exhaustion, he did just use the Force tojump for a lower walkway to a much higher one. He could have been conserving his power too, so he didn't drain up his enegy and remain defenseless throughout the duel.

  • How could a giant droid ship not have any cameras, especially on the landing craft? Easily some of the worst designed militiary equipment in the history of war.

They do have some sort of surviallence since they watched the Jedi battle outside they room. The Jedi also wanted to sneak on to the ship, so they could have very easily avoided cameras. You can nitpick every movie to death like this, even the original trilogy.

--- End Section 1
((section2) skipping gungan crap)

  • Why didn't they kill the Queen and forge her signature, to "make it legal"? They don't seem to need her for much else.

Because they need senate to witness the signing. The senate may need to question her later, or word might get out that the queen was killed and the signature was forged, which would also be illegal. It just isn't a good idea to kill the one person you need to sign a treaty to make an invasion legal.

  • Why aren't they actually killing the citizens? Does it really matter?

They were killing citizens, the movie points that out multiple times.

  • Why do they guard everything with the Droids, which are clearly utterly ineffectual in guarding vs Jedi? (kill them?)

That's all they have, besides they didn't actually know if Jedi made down to the planet or not, but they did assign a watch party. The camps could very well have many more droids than your standard patrol escorting the Queen to on of the camps.

  • Why did they guard the pilots right 'next' to their ship?

Perhaps waiting to be moved to a camp, from what the movie shows they were still processing many citizens. They had just arrived, processing takes time.

  • Why didn't they destroy the ship while it was on the ground?

Why should they? They believed they captured everyone, destroying a ship wouldn't help their plans unless they thought the Queen somehow escapse with her gaurds (who are all unarmed), allowing them to be able to steal a heavily guarded ship and the pilots. They had no real reason to.

  • When they got on the ship, they were invincible with the shields, so why when it fell, did it not come back up 'before' getting past the Trade ship? They were in the clear, by the time the shields were back up.

No they weren't, in fact they were blasted quite a few time with and without the shields on.

  • Why did they hold a stupid ceremony for R2D2, he's a droid, a tool.

They thanked R2 for a job well done making it clear they treat their droids differently than Trade Federation treats their battle droids.

--- End Section 3
I'll stop here on this. And no, before you say anything, this isn't a simple nitpick, good movies aren't so poorly thought out.

No, a lot of these points are nitpicks, while some points RLM clearly misunderstood or clearly was not paying attention to the movie.

3. If SW is a little kids movie, then why in Epi1 does it deal with such boring politics all the time?

1. Boring is sujective. I actually like watching how Palpitne's plans all work out in prequels.

2. It shows how Palpatine became Chancellor, and throughout the trilogy it's revealed that the Battle of Naboo was just his way of becoming elected. The prequels also show how he used the Clone Wars to not only distract the Jedi and wipe them out, but to also gain the support of the senate, allowing him to change the Republic into a Galactic Empire and himself into Emperor.

The whole review is just about a guy nitpicking a movie to death, you can do that with any movie.

I'll do it to ANH.

  • Why do the stromtroopers funnel out to their deaths through the docking door? Couldn't they have thrown a bomb to distract the rebels and then come throught the door?
  • Why do C-3PO and R2 walk throught a hallway full of blaster shooting and not wait until the firing had stopped?
  • How did R2 know Leia needed him for a mission?
  • When the Imperials saw a escape launch, why didn't they just shoot it anyway just in case?
  • Even though Vader believes the Princess sent the Death Star codes (very important) to the planet below, why does he take his Star Destroyer and leave?

That's all I'm going to do. Again, these all have answers, the movie doesn't have time to answer every little detail about the plot or story.

You can say that they sucked until the world goes cold and you may even be right, but calling them failures is just stupid. Because these movies cost a HELL of a lot to make, without financial success then Star Wars would REALLY have died, and them being crap doesn't change that.

C2N2

Y-Wings are solid and slow, but they can fight. Same with bombers. They both can be armed with Air to Air missiles. Women can be in the military, it's just very hard for them. Check out Natasi Daala. Most capital ships have racks upon racks of missiles and torpedoes. Granted, I haven't seen the video yet, so I don't know what sort of missiles you're actually talking about.

Edit: Having actually watched the video now... WOW. I wish most of the Star Wars media was actually that faithful to the (most consistant) canon. Quad lasers on the Interceptor was the one thing that brought the biggest grin to my face.

It's too late bro. You can't just undo Episode I. Not even a re-re-re-remastered re-re-re-release of the original trilogy can save Star Wars at this point.Laihendi

Hahaha. The remastered original trilogy has only hurt star wars. Seriously, every last change made was absolute sh!t, and George Lucas is a terrible person for doing it, after speaking out very strongly against that same practice when others did it before him.

Star Wars never needed to be saved, and I fail to see how that anime was so great.

Actually Star Wars does need to be saved, it needs to be saved from George Lucas. Currently only one release of the Original Star Wars trilogy actually contains the 100% un-edited theatrical cuts of Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, and that version is now out of print and the films were poor laserdisc rips. Star Wars is ruined more and more with each release, with uncessary and out of place special effects, line changes, voice over and actor changes. Ironic considering that in 1988 George Lucas gave a long and thought provoking speach to Congress on why film needs to be preserved, and that colourizing Black and White films was a crime against art, and called those who alter films permnantly barbarians.

Thank you. I just watched a couple videos on youtube the other day, highlighting the latest changes, in the Blu Ray box set. It's disgusting. Have you seen the completely redone band/music in Jabba's palace? It's like something out of a f**king disney movie. Made me go and find my original trilogy VHS box set, just to make sure it's still there. It was the last release of the unedited original films, I think from 92 or 93. The ones with the George Lucas interview with Leonard Maltin. I'm going to get those transferred to digital one of these days, and then find a way to store the tapes so they won't deteriorate.

[QUOTE="MrGeezer"][QUOTE="svenus97"] I don't see how that money affects me. I'm sorry, I forgot I was on a forum, from now on I'll use "for me and in my opinion" before every sentence.svenus97
So in other words, "I didn't like it". Well, boo ****ing hoo. Join the crowd. I don't think that George Lucas made a bunch of movies that cost millions of dollars just to please you. You can say that they sucked until the world goes cold and you may even be right, but calling them failures is just stupid. Because these movies cost a HELL of a lot to make, without financial success then Star Wars would REALLY have died, and them being crap doesn't change that. These movies were successful as hell, there's no denying that.

How about you read the posts. I never said they were a financial failure... just that I didn't like them.

You confused your not liking them with them being "colossal fails". I don't like them ether, but I've never be daft enough to accuse them of being "fails" when they were mind-numbingly successful.

You're probably not going to be able to get any place to do that for you. Most of them won't touch any commercial product for fear of violating someone's copyright and getting their asses sued off. Hell, a few years ago my wife had difficulty getting some pictures of her and her mom from 1974 copied because they appeared to have been shot in a studio (they were, but the photographer had been dead for nearly 20 years at that point, and I seriously doubt his descendants would have cared). My wife had to dust off the old theater skills and and start crying, saying that it was for her mom's funeral, before the manager of the place relented (we bought a scanner/printer after that). So if you want to transfer those to digital chances are you're gonna have to do it yourself.
