what drove me NUTS is how he passive-aggressively included the real movie as a "special feature" on the dvd release but not the anamorphic version. SUCH a bitch move.

I don't think we can accurately judge Lucas' output without individual building meter data!

i thought it was some obscure nugget about lucasfilm's data output and how that proved the originals didn't exist any more or something

does anyone have a cite to the real individual building meter data from Ep. 2? is that on the DVD?

no matter how much i do like spielberg, i downgrade him for pulling a few of these lucas-style moves in his career, too.

if i made a thread called "the crimes of hitler" i dont think anyone would complain that it shouldnt be in plural because his crime is "the holocaust"

well if the point of the thread was to start a poll over what was specifically the worst of his crimes, people might

^^ this, far and away -- if you can't get individual building utility data out of the application, how are we supposed to verify savings?

oh no I mean: the prequels had maybe a bit much of sorta ethnic-typed aliens, which I think we've discussed plenty before

lucas and spielberg represent a lot of people in hollywood who apparently think the audience just can't handle moderately edgy shit anymore.

let us not split hairs and have this dumb argument, everyone knows what i meant. can we just keep laughing about the meter thing

Cowardly G. Soundgarden (s1ocki), Wednesday, 15 July 2009 17:56 (6 years ago) Permalink

i have GONE OFF about this before, but what really drives me nuts is that the basic scenario laid out in the prequels is really interesting! but they are still horrible. it's like someone made three really horrible movies out a great novel about a despot's rise to power. except there's no such novel. it's the weirdest thing.

xp yes wtf how can u introduce the idea of SLAVERY in the universe and then not address it ever again

nb I am usually less morally "offended" by ethnic-type aliens (though there's maybe a bit of that with Watto or JarJar) and more just aesthetically offended, like ... please actually make up a fucking alien from your head and not just animate some CGI Central Casting Stock Mildly Offense Ethnic Archetype shit

nabisco, Wednesday, 15 July 2009 17:58 (6 years ago) Permalink

knowing what little i do know about producers via my limited interaction w/them, i can say that they're mostly total retards who get bored by difficult films like 'heat' and 'the departed'

to be fair, swinging close-up IMAX testicles would be marginally funny for 30 seconds or so, and will probably feature in a Baron-Cohen movie at some point

Not partic relevant but the talk upthread about ridiculously huge toys, do you think it wd be interesting to do a thread about that - consumer products so extremely expensive that (I assume) almost no-one ever owned them?

There's a pleasant 'toys your parents wouldn't buy you' thread, don't recall specificslly, but more of a list / pics thing than a look into the economics and curious product development lives of toys designed for the Gekko tots but hyped indiscriminately to all.

michael jackson wanted to play jar jar binks, says ahmed best

That's what George told me. Me, Natalie Portman, and George's kids—we were at Wembley arena at Michael Jackson's concert. We were taken backstage and we met Michael. There was Michael and Lisa Marie Presley. George introduced me as "Jar Jar" and I was like, That's kind of weird. Michael was like, "Oh. OK." I thought, What is going on? After Michael had driven off, we all go back up to a big afterparty. I'm having a drink with George and I said, "Why did you introduce me as Jar Jar?" He said, "Well, Michael wanted to do the part but he wanted to do it in prosthetics and makeup like 'Thriller.'" George wanted to do it in CGI. My guess is ultimately Michael Jackson would have been bigger than the movie, and I don't think he wanted that.
