Lessons From Star Wars

A couple items from 10 things I have learned from George Lucas:

- Storm Trooper armor is purely cosmetic as it stops neither blaster fire nor little rocks thrown by teddy bears.
- Slaughtering children doesn’t necessarily make you an unappealing hero to children as long as you call the butchered kids, “younglings.”

Sedition concludes about the Star Wars saga:

But it seems like the story is all told; until Lucas decides it’s time to edit out the blasters and replace them with flashlights.

That reminded me of an excellent review I recently read of the Star Wars: Episode III DVD (the site is down as I write this):

STAR WARS: EPISODE III- Got the DVD and you know, I was wrong. It’s not a good movie…not even close. It really is close to being unwatchable…and I’m a STAR WARS fan man…I’m not bashing….but fuck, those last three were just shit balls….

  1. Shit balls huh. Well, I suppose. They are pretty close to the anus.

    I don’t give a fuck. I am buying the stupid DVD cause I need it to complete the collection. Besides, I was quoted in the News Paper saying that I would purchase all six DVDs when available. Now, I can’t let the good people of Moncton and surounding area down can I? No. I have to go through with it.

  2. I picture Greg writing to the editor with something along the lines of “Why is everyone hating on star wars, you guys just don’t understand the cinematic depth of such a huge storyline, i will buy them all, and i own every action figure too!”

    :)

  3. I’m looking forward to watching the ORIGINAL Stars Wars when it was just called Star Wars, no episode nothing. Those were the good old days. (Still downloading.)
