    Saw Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones for about the hundredth time time last night. As I saw the film, I couldn't help but notice the large amount of mystery surrounding this one. Almost the entire story is built upon mystery after mystery: the mysteries of the assassination attempts, the clone army, the Sith, the bounty hunter Jango Fett, etc. The action is good, the mystery is good, the romance is sort of stupid due to dialogue and such, and the score is good (from what I could hear). Of course it's not my favorite Star Wars film, but not my least favorite, either.

    IMHO, ATOC is the worst of the bunch. As you said, there's a good story there but the execution was just plain AWFUL. CGI Yoda was terrible, the lightsabre battles were down right disappointing, the dialog - vomit inducing, C-3PO turns into and bumbling fool, flying R2-D2, little Boba Fett.... ARGH! The score, besides the love theme and the Chase Through Corescant is the worst of the series. This "film" is bad, bad, bad, bad.

    BTW, Star Wars ranking.

    1. The Empire Strikes Back
    2. Star Wars
    3. Return of the Jedi
    4. Revenge of the Sith
    5. The Phantom Menace
    6. Attack of the Clones. <-- even the title sucks!

    My list is exactly the same. Empire is one of the best film I've ever seen. And CGI Yoda was one of the worst things I've ever seen.

    Nothing to surprise you with here as my list is exactly the same!!

    The most enjoyable part of 'Clones' for me was Fett and Kenobi's fight on the ocean platform.

    Hmm, score wise? Mine would be:

    The Empire Strikes Back
    Star Wars or The Phantom Menace (Phantom was my first John Williams score that I bought on CD, so it holds a special place amongst my collection)
    Return Of The Jedi
    Revenge Of The Sith
    Attack Of The Clones

    All of them either fantastic or a masterpiece. No less! punk

    I never tire of Star Wars lists! biggrin

    Hmmmm....toughie....

    Star Wars / Empire Strikes Back - a tie, I think Empire is the better score but the first one holds so much great nostalgia for me I just couldn't put it in 2nd.

    Return ofThe Jedi

    The Phantom Menace

    Revenge of The Sith - I was going to put this ahead of 'Phantom' but then I realised it was because it re-hashes so much from the earlier scores that I love, I went for 'Phantom' over this for it's fresher originality.

    Attack of The Clones - maybe last but it's still damn fine scoring.

    I knew it was gonna be good, but I didnt' know this was gonna be that good. Purely amazing piece, the drama, the comedy, the action, everything is simply brilliant. These guys have a lot of inspiration, and I must confess that James has it right, alongside Toy Story 2 and Ratatouille these are the best yet.

    So far I haven't seen Wall-E so, who knows? wink

    Christian Bale's attorneys released a statement Tuesday denying assault allegations that led to the actor's arrest in London: "Christian Bale attended a London police station today, on a voluntary basis, in order to assist with an allegation that had been made against him to the police by his mother and sister," the star's lawyers said in the statement. "Mr. Bale who denies the allegation, co-operated throughout, gave his account in full of the events in question, and has left the station without any charge being made against him by the police. At this time, there will be no further comment by Mr. Bale."

    I recently saw Narnia 2: Prince Caspian and was not very satisfied with it. It was kind of boring and it didn't seem to have anything to do with the first movie's story other than where it's set and Aslan. Also, all of the cool action sequences (the water giant and trees are what I'm refering to) seemed to be taken right out of LOTR.. Really, the film didn't have too much going for it other than that witty mouse guy.. Maybe it's just not my cup of tea, but it seemed just like regergetated fantasy bullshit.. no offense to anyone who liked it.


    Have you read the book? As a matter of fact, much of the things you speak of are found throughout the book. The water giant and the trees may seem to be from The Lord of the Rings, but they are from the original novel, which was written about the same time as The Lord of the Rings. Another thing you should know is that C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien were good friends who met regularly while they were in the process of writing their bestselling cycles. It is possible that the trees and water giant ideas were inspired by The Lord of the Rings, but even that is highly unlikely. The two were some of the greatest authors of their time, and were basically the founders of the fantasy genre we know today. So you can't really say Prince Caspian is "just like regergetated fantasy bullshit," because the correct wording would be, Every other bad fantasy film is just like a regenerated Prince Caspian. Fact is, Prince Caspian and the other Narnia books upon which the films are based are some of the pioneering fantasy novels. You can't say they're cliched, because it's actually many of the modern fantasy stories that are cliched and, as you put it, "regergetated fantasy bullshit."

    No I have not read the book. And I'm aware of most of this, and I'm sorry if my comments offended you, but it doesn't make it a good film. The filmmakers knew that so many elements of the story have been executed by so many other fantasy series, yet the failed to set themselves apart and at least take on an original way of making these elements however that would be. You're right though, C. S. Lewis wrote it a long time ago, I'm sorry I said it was regergetated; the film just did nothing original at all (I think), and I don't think I would have liked it even if there wasn't a bunch of other fantasy films that came before it.

    You didn't offend me at all. I was merely pointing out that, though the film is a completely different animal than the book, it is actually not cliched at all (though yes, to modern audiences who have seen other fantasy films, it is cliched). The book itself is actually quite anti-cinematic, and from what I hear, it made for a very difficult time rendering a screenplay. Anyways, no harm done, and no offense at all taken. beer
