Yeah I can't understand the love for that film. Haven't seen it in years though so might change my mind if I watched it again - generally I really like the Coens.
Star Wars - never seen any of them. I'm not particularly sold on what I do know of them.
Because they made a joke about autism or because they criticised your beloved franchise?
Unfair comparison, when the writing is clearly closer to that of a child with downs.
Also, I think the animated segment of the special is actually on the extras on the Star Wars BD collection.
It's more or less because the fans are just so bitter about it that they would make the joke. I mean, how long until they make jokes saying that they would round up people who like the prequels and exterminate them?
Are you sure? It seems to be more that of a fanfic writer moving on from his or her sexual LotR romp.
Well we needed a little light humour in this thread.
All I ask in return is a link to the parody that changed R2D2's name to 'BarStool'. This is really important to me now for some strange reason.
If you are familiar with THX1138 you could be forgiven for thinking that Lucas tried serious si-fi and when it didn't work (ie went over the heads of the great unwashed movie going public) he decided to go with the flow (over to the dark side) and direct the sort of crap that people would actually watch. That is how we got Star Wars.
For all it's weaknesses Star Wars was a game changer in the movie business. There are doubtless many si-fi themed movies that would never have been made or seen if Lucas hadn't show the way.
Please correct me if you think I'm wrong.
Sorry, but I haven't really followed Star Wars parodies, save for Spaceballs, the Robot Chicken ones and the first Family Guy one. But if someone would give me the title, I'll gladly search for it.
Blasters are unreliable; light-sabers are more deadly when fought with using the FORCE!
That's the whole point of them.
That's because he's so intune with the force he has a minor foresight that makes him talk like that.
I'd reckon that the notion of the Star Wars universe is wonderfully compelling(IMHO sooooo better than LOTR), but that for the most part it's execution is lacking. The idea is better than the "reality". Like meeting the most gorgeous woman you've ever seen* and the disappointment of discovering she's lacklustre in conversation, in bed and in soul. That I reckon is the disconnect with both fans and folks on the sidelines. Lucas came up with a bloody brilliant idea, but the description of that idea has fallen flat more than it hasn't. After all who wouldn't want to be a Jedi Knight with a fcuking laser sword FFS, or the pilot of a souped up space van with a Wookie for a co-pilot. Sign me the fcuk up. Though I'm probably more on the dark side.
*if you're a bloke or a woman who digs this sort of thing.
