So basically there’s no trailers of worthy note released this week, well unless you count a new trailer for Underworld Awakening. I don’t. Those films blow. So instead I thought I’d have a little fun and post a few trailer that relate to my next review somehow. Then you guys can guess what it is in the comments. Also if you’re one of the handful of people I have told what the next review is then, well, shut the FLIP up!
So this is it. The final (current) installment of the Star Wars Saga. We’ve seen wars. We’ve seen stars. We’ve seen wars that take place in the stars, Star Wars if you will. We’ve seen Anakin be drawn into the Darkside. We’ve seen Luke Skywalker learn about the force and become a hero. We’ve heard the phrases ‘I’ve got a bad feeling about this” and “Search your feelings, you know it to be true.” about 4 billion times. We’ve also seen just how difficult George Lucas finds it to internalise conflict… “Nooooooooooo!” for example. Also see “No Noo Nooooo!” and as this film features “No…. Noooooaahhhhhhh!!!” Click the link.
Awwww shiiit! It’s The Empire Strikes Back bay-beh! Where’s yo curly mustache at? hmmmm. That was out of place. Anyway. The Empire Strikes Back is the best Star Wars film by quite some way and if you don’t agree with that you can go suck a Bantha dick. I cannot fathom just how many times I have seen this film. What makes this film so great? Read on to find out.
Here we are. The original trilogy. Out goes CGI and hammy acting and in comes… CGI and hammy acting. Oh, special editions. Well hammy acting is a Star Wars trademark I suppose. As is George Lucas messing with the films. What this film does have that the prequel trilogy does not is a fine collection of sideburns. Until they get digitally removed of course. Anyway, this is where it all started. This is where every child of the late 70s and early 80s gained their obsession for all things sci-fi. click the link yo!
As I mentioned at the end of my Attack Of The Clones review I was left feeling quite hyped for Revenge Of The Sith when that films credits rolled. As the release of Episode 3 drew closer I had heard plenty of good stuff concerning the film. It was gonna be a 12 certificate which meant it could be a little darker than the previous 2 which is precisely what this entry needed. That Lucas was being harder on himself when it came to putting out a quality film. That Jar Jar Binks was barely going to be in it. Thankfully upon viewing the film all those things appeared to be true. Didn’t stop one scene dragging the whole thing down though…
Everyone gets a second chance right? Lucas may have disappointed anyone over the age of 10 with The Phantom Menace but even then he deserves a chance to set things right. Enter Attack Of The Clones. The second of the prequel trilogy and the one we were assured would make up for the boring mess that was The Phantom Menace. So how does it fare? Click the jump for my views.
