Here is the latest leaked trailer for the upcoming Clone Wars CGI movie.
The plot revolving around Jabba’s son seems a little bizarre, but the movie looks fun.
This is becoming something of a tradition here at mgroves.com, I guess.
Lucas is so ashamed of this train-wreck of a TV special that he always gets the videos taken down!
So here it is again, the Star Wars Holiday Special. This is the abrdiged, 5 minute version without all the Wookie noise (also without the cartoon).
I’m not sure how I feel about a Star Wars TV series that’s entirely CGI.
But that’s what I’m going to get. Check out the trailer for Star Wars: Clone Wars TV series.
It looks as if it will be very similar to the Clone Wars cartoon series (which was excellent). And I guess large swaths of the last 3 movies were pretty much entirely CGI already.
Just something about it reminds me more of Garry’s Mod or some sort of fan-created show than legitimate Star Wars goodness.
Will I watch it? Of course. Will I buy the DVD box sets? Yes. Will I buy the Super-DVD2x box sets that will be released in 2022? Yes.
So, did you read The Top 15 Han Solo Quotes You Need to Use in Regular Conversation? If not, go ahead and read ‘em–they’re all good.
As a total Star Wars nerd and fanboy, I try to work in Star Wars quotes as often as possible into regular conversation, so any list like this is always helpful.
“What an incredible smell you’ve discovered.” This is a quote that I use all the time, but seems to go unheeded by those I quote it too. Or maybe it’s such good dialog that no one realizes it’s from a movie.
One quote that was surprisingly left off: “Sorry about the mess.” This is the quote right after “Yeah, I’ll bet you have,” when Han leaves Greedo’s corpse slumped over a table. He then tosses the bartender some coins as an additional apology. This is a great quote to use when you have biffed something royally. Yes, I said “biffed.”
This is so ridiculous that I just had to post it. It’s the ending space battle sequence from Star Wars: A New Hope, acted out….entirely with hands.
It’s so absurd, but it’s some of the finest…hand work…I’ve ever seen.
Hat tip to x daveman x, which is fast becoming one of my favorite blogs.
I’ve posted about the Star Wars Holiday Special before, but I thought with Christmas coming up and all that it might be good to post about it again. Plus, the YouTube video from before was removed, so I’ve posted a fresh one below.
That’s just Part 1. If you really want to see the rest of the show, you can just start here at YouTube.
Now maybe all the angry purists will shut up already! The original releases of Star Wars Episodes 4,5,6 (with Han Solo shooting first and the abridged version of Sy Snootles’ musical number) will be released on DVD on September 12th, 2006.
I’ll buy them of course, along with the planned 3d remakes and the inevitable DVD sets of the planned TV series. I’m such a Star Wars shill.
You know what’s fun to do on a rainy day? Put a sentence of English text into Babelfish, translate it to German or French or something, and then translate that text back into English. For example:
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Before the thing 87 year which is the same where human everyone was drawn up this continent, it has with new nation, it is free and our fathers who are imagined, and are lifted up to proposition.
Maybe you can find something funnier. Pretty cool that Babelfish can turn “four score and seven” into “87.” But anyway, imagine if you did that to an entire movie. Like, say, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, or should I say, “Star War: Backstroke of the West”.
Incidentally, “Do Not Want” has become one of the retarded taglines of the Internet, known as a “meme”. For an example, check out the dog picture below.
I’m only familiar with Alec Guinness’ brilliant acting in Star Wars, and that’s probably what he will go down in history for, but he may also be remembered for his long and successful career as one of England’s finest actors.
Here are some highlights:
- Great Expectations
- Oliver Twist
- Kind Hearts and Coronets – playing multiple roles, Peter Sellers style
- The Ladykillers
- The Bridge on the River Kwai
- Lawrence of Arabia
- Doctor Zhivago
He was also won a few awards. He would have been 92 today.
I am so addicted to Star Wars: Empire at War it’s not even funny. I haven’t enjoyed a Star Wars video game this much since the original X-Wing PC game. Imagine owning a boatload of Star Wars action figures–all the movies, all the releases, etc. Now imagine getting them to move around and fight each other. Sound nerdy enough for ya?
Yeah, it’s pretty much a Blizzard rip-off, but there’s enough different and interesting elements that make it more than just a Starcraft-mod type of game. For crying out loud, you can use AT-ATs, Star Destroyers, and the Death Star. Tell me that isn’t awesome!
One very cool thing I liked: you can have a “hero” like Darth Vader, Han Solo, etc. Darth Vader is ridiculously powerful: he can crush any target vehicle–basically a free instant kill. He can do a “force push” and destroy gobs of infantry surrounding him. Also, he’s practically invincible since he deflects more blaster shots with his lightsaber.
If you have a TIE Bomber squadron in orbit, you can do “bombing runs”. Basically, you pick a spot on the map and a squad of TIE Bombers come down and strafe the whole area, destroying gobs of troops, vehicles, and buildings at no resource and little time cost to you.
If you are a Star Wars nut, you must play this game.
