Star wars rox

For some reason now being a bit older, certain movies are much more appealing.

The old star wars movies on TV right now are frig'n cool sauce.

I also seem to now like Monty Python, the holy grail which was the stupidest thing to ever grace the film industry when I first watched it at 12.

Damn right.

Here's a fact, though:

We did the Star Wars thread last week. You'll have to wait another year. Time for bed, son.

Wow. Darth Vader kills that evil dude to save his son. He really loves luke!

He has a heart after all, even though the dark side corrupted him!

They need to redit that famous line: "Luke, I am you're loving father."

Or "No, C3PO, I am your father"

"Goodness gracious, no!"

I can't believe I watched the trilogy on TV last night too. I mean I have 3 different copies of the damned things and have probably watched them dozens of times. But when I saw Star Wars on TV last night I can't help but watch them again.

Yes, I am one of those.

I was saying out loud with Yoda last night one of his memorable lines to Luke:

YODA: You must unlearn what you have learned.
LUKE: All right, Iíll give it a try.
YODA: No! Try not. Do. Or do not. There is no try.

Then my daughter asked me "What are you saying daddy?"
Me: "Oh, I'm just repeating along with the movie dear."

That's a classic from Yoda. I use that one a lot with my kids.

Jon, in time you'll learn to appreciate much... Spinal Tap, Apocalypse Now, Blade Runner, ....

Hey did anyone notice at the end of Episode VI: Return of the Jedi they replaced old Anakin Skywalker ghost with young Anakin Skywalker's ghost?

Then you've got young Anakin, Old Obi Wan and Old Yoda. This is bantha fodder!!!

...almost as bad as someone attempting to bury David Ortiz' jersey in the new Yankee Stadium foundation!

I liked it, and it made sense within the context of how the split of anakin and darth were described. Darth is not anakin, Darth killed anakin. When he died, he died as anakin, so they put anakin in there.

I don't think I ever presented myself as cool. A big geek? Definitely.
If big geek ever equated to cool then you will be correct.

I'm kinda the opposite. I thought Monty Python was the funniest thing ever when I was a teenager, but it seems kinda purile to me now. The Holy Grail is still one of the most quotable films in history though, and it holds a special place in my heart.

It always amuses me the convoluted twists fanboys, including George Lucas, will put themselves through to explain the inconsistencies, plot holes and just plain nonsense the prequels made of the original trilogy.

No twists, thats what the movies states. Its how they justify not telling luke that darth is daddy until the end. ...That set of storey lines is from typical fanboy's 3 favorites and not the prequels

It always amuses me how the "older" (as in prefer the older movies) crusty fanboys can't sit back and enjoy a decent storey with so so cgi
