Star Wars: Episode II -- Attack of the Clones

Geeks will discuss and debate for all time what’s wrong with, what should have been, and how it should have been done in regard to George Lucas’s Star Wars prequel trilogy, all while still generally agreeing that the trilogy was, for the most part, a disaster (critically, of course).

The folks over at Belated Media also have their views on how the prequels could have been the movies fans so desperately wanted them to be, and they’re putting their ideas out to the masses to see what everyone thinks. Not that anything can be done about it now, obviously, but hey…it’s fun to pretend.

There’s certainly some interesting tweaks to ponder, so be sure to continue on below to watch the video and be sure to share your thoughts in the comments!

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Image

Before all of this madness with Disney purchasing Lucasfilm and announcing brand new Star Wars movies began, we were in the midst of getting George Lucas‘s prequel trilogy re-released into theaters with a 3D makeover.

The Phantom Menace had already returned to theaters last February to show off its third dimension, adding $43 million domestically and $59 million overseas to its overall box office take, and release dates were set for Attack of the Clones (September 20, 2013) and Revenge of the Sith (October 11, 2013).

Now those dates have been vacated.

Star Wars NO

Here’s a good one for a laugh. There’s been a whole bunch of awesome Star Wars humor videos on the web, most of them using excerpts from the films and re-edited by fans. This one is of “NO” exception, as it features every single time the word “no” is mentioned in all six movies. It’s worth a look, so check it out at the bottom of the post.

Although the obvious classic (and/or groan-worthy) NO’s are featured in the video, you’ll be surprised how much the word is actually used in the movies. It may probably fuel the George Lucas Haters’ vocal detestation of his writing, but haters gonna hate!

The Star Wars NO video was edited by Chris Haynes, and uploaded to YouTube by HughesnBeuks.

Anyway, take a look, and leave your thoughts in a comment below.

The People Vs George Lucas FilmThe People vs. George Lucas
DVD | Instant Video
Directed by Alexandre O. Philippe
Starring Neil Gaiman, Francis Ford Coppola, Chris Gore, Kevin Rubio, Gary Kurtz, David Prowse, Todd Hanson, George Lucas
Lionsgate
DVD Release Date: October 25, 2011

The People vs. George Lucas is a quasi-documentary film which uses a courtroom debate approach to explore the issues of filmmaking and fanaticism pertaining to the Star Wars franchise, and its creator, George Lucas.

The film combines filmmaker and celebrity interviews with fan-created content and fictional dramatizations to present an all-encompassing look at the indelible mark Lucas has left on pop culture and the film industry.

Interviewees include author Neil Gaiman, writer/director Kevin Rubio (Troops), actor David Prowse (Darth Vader), and Star Wars producer Gary Kurtz. Lucas himself appears frequently in archival footage, but is never interviewed directly by filmmaker Alexandre O. Philippe.

The People vs. George Lucas discusses the extent to which the Star Wars franchise is an incomplete artistic creation of Lucas (and subject to his evolving vision) versus a cultural phenomenon that belongs to the general public.

French Fast Food Joint Releases ‘Star Wars’ Burgers For ‘Phantom Menace’ 3D Release

Darth Vader and Yoda Burger

A French fast food restaurant called Quick is making some specialty burgers in conjunction with the re-release of Star Wars: Episode 1 — The Phantom Menace in 3D.

The trio of burgers each draw inspiration from the Star Wars universe. The first is the “Dark Burger,” inspired by Darth Maul (or “Dark Maul”), which can be seen here. Then comes the “Jedi Burger,” inspired by Master Yoda and the Jedi, and last but not least, the “Dark Vador” burger, which is of course inspired by Darth Vader and can be seen above. The Vader burger is the most notable of the three because it comes on a jet-black “carbonized” bun.

Doctor Who: The Phantom Menace

Some of you may remember last year about this time, just before Christmas, we wrote about an awesome Doctor Who and Star Wars mashup video done by Rick Kelvington. The video got a lot of attention online, quickly becoming a favorite among fans, and was even mentioned in Doctor Who Magazine. Now, Kelvington is back, with a brand new mashup of the two universes, where Jedi Knights and Time Lords meet.

Written by Henry Gilroy, Mark Schultz, Timothy Truman, and Ryder Windham
Art by Chris Chuckry, Steve Crespo, Martin Egeland, George Freeman, Harold Mackinnon, P. Craig Russell, Galen Showman, Howard M. Shum, Lisa Stamp, Robert Teranishi
Cover Art by Hugh Fleming
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: December 21, 2011
Cover Price: $7.99

With the Star Wars 3D Movie logo on the cover of Dark Horse’s Star Wars: Episode I Adventures, it is clear that the comic company (along with many other licensees) is now gearing up for the 3D Re-release of The Phantom Menace scheduled to be released on February 10, 2012. Despite the negative outlook on the prequels by vocal movie fans, I am sure there are some, almost 13 years after its first release, nostalgic enough and looking forward to the 3D screenings — and prequel fans will undoubtedly be excited too. However, this collection of Episode I-related narratives isn’t quite for everyone, although there are some positive elements to the book.

‘Star Wars’: The Opinion Menace

Star Wars

It’s no mystery that when the Star Wars Prequels were released, opinions were divided. On one hand you had fans that seemed reasonably happy with the films, and on the other, you had a very vocal group of fans who despised the movies and believed them substandard to the Original Trilogy.

There’s been a lot of Star Wars buzz on the web lately. From the planned re-release of all six films (if they perform well) in 3D format, to the upcoming release of the films on Blu-Ray with deleted scenes and other bonus materials, to latest news bytes about the developing live-action series, it seems that there’s always stuff out there for Star Wars followers.

Unfortunately, when it comes to reporting a lot of Star Wars content, it seems that facts of projects or news as they come to light continue to get tainted by the negative opinion some writers have of the prequel trilogy.

Don’t get me wrong. You are welcome to have your opinion on the Star Wars prequels. I’m not saying that’s the problem.

Finally! The REAL Reason George Lucas’s ‘Star Wars’ Prequels Failed
space
The Movie God   |  @   |

Few things can match the excitement that Star Wars fans had when they found out that the three prequel movies in a rumored 9–movie franchise were going to be made by George Lucas. But in 1999 the prequel trilogy began, and when it was all said and done in 2005 fans were only left scratching their heads, unsure of what had just happened to them.

Since then all anyone has ever wanted was an answer as to why the three movies—Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (which, to be fair, is pretty decent and by far the best of the three)—didn’t come close to living up to the hype set by the classic original trilogy released in the late ’70s and early ’80s.

Thankfully that answer is now here in the form of a video called George Lucas Strikes Back. Not much else needs to be said—go forth, and discover the answers you’ve sought for so very long now.
