1 Star Wars Marathon on Wed Sep 14, 2011 7:42 am

I bet it includes the Holiday Special. I motherf*cking bet it does. And they say the prequels were bad.

Huh!
And I though the denizens where more of trekkies.

Could you ask for better army than Denizens who obviously self-identify with Storm Trooper clones?

What is that one in the Middle Wearing? Is that a George Lucius Mask?

Just be grateful that they watched the original trilogy, not the prequels or (shudder) Clone Wars.

I didn't know that they even made Stormtrooper helmets that small.

Just shows to go ya.

PEZ dispensers I would like to think though they be smaller than the Dez's heads. But more likely it's the same way they bought the stuff to make the TIEs. I wonder if Art has been checking his bank account lately?

HAH at the one C3-P0 Denizen. Now we know the odd one.

will play the SW theme disco on the way home. Bet someone will look at him odd dance driving to darth discos and jiving jawas.

C3-P0 Denizen: Don't you judge me, I was born this way.

LoL, didn't notice C3PO in the middle there initially, well played. Smile

I am a little surprised at JJ calling the show by it's real name instead of something like "Far Wars" or "Star Battles" this time around. Wonder why the change-up?

If they start using using limp imperial threats, I'm out of here.

You'd think JJ would have made X-Wings instead of TIE's, but I'm betting that TIE's were easier to draw, amirite?

X-Wings are way too over-engineered, would be way too expensive for the denizens, and as pointed out earlier, it makes sense that the denizens would identify with the Stormtroopers. TIE's are perfect for those little walking shadows.

I love this strip. I have to admit I had to read the comments to figure out who the oddball was, it looked so creepy I didn't think of 3PO.

I guess I'm just too lowbrow when it comes to my cinematic appetites; I enjoy Star Wars despite its obvious flaws. But then, I like haggis and natto, too... Laughing

Might I suggest a name change to "The Odd Wolf", then? Razz

np: Lamb - Butterfly Effect (5)

Do it. Now.

If its a movie I watch it. As long as it moves and contains action and a semidecent storyline. (IMO)

I prefer the old trilogy, not the new one and definitely nor the revised IV,V,VI.

You know, the ones they forced him to hack out material deemed too out there because it was the script was too long winded, and they didn't trust him to just yet because Lucas was new, and then you add in the fact the technology for the cinematic parts were the best of their day and every effort was put into making the best you could with what you had. That is why the ORIGINAL trilogy has survived as it has. I think the original three were the best of the whole star wars franchise. Especially since, you know, Lucas and everyone starting believing for real that Lucas was GOD that was implanted in their heads.

That said I could be reversed by saying Lucas used the very best CGI for his new trilogy and revising the old one, but you have to look at this in my stand point. My favorite movie trilogy is back to the future, my favorite movie is Batteries Not Included of all time. The best tech is old tech for films, real props and not something computer based are essential. The technology used for the special effects in those movies were the best and still sit among the best of the best to me. Frankly, it's amazing how BnI's special effects twenty seven years ago can still look so much more real than the work of the best digital artists in the biz today. I guess it just goes to show you cgi doesn't make the movie. To myself anyway. oops I ranted. gomen. END RANT!

For me it needs to have plot, a reasonable storyline that my mind can use to develop both character points, narrative, and have some understandable credible sense of logic. Take Thor for example. YES, lots of CGI, but the moments when she's hitting him with her van or just talking with him are more entertaining to me. However when I guessed the coming response/action/plot point(Not a Thor comic reader), I was VERY pleasantly surprised when it did exactly that. It was predictable. BUT, it was predictable in the enjoyable sense that it left me happy to watch it with no 'why the fuck did he do that?' sense of confusion so many other movies and books lately have left me. It followed through with it's goal of being a entertaining and plot driven action movie I was happy to play money to see and will be getting on dvd whenever I know someone isn't buying it for me for my birthday or the coming holiday.... fuck I am ranting again. What the heck is wrong with me? I'll just be going over... Arrow there yeah bye.

20 Wait a minute... Oh... SH...!!! on Thu Sep 15, 2011 2:11 pm

It has suddenly occured to me what a bad thing this is. The Denizens, who have been the mindless foot-soldiers for an evil mastermind before, have imprinted on a dark/lawful totalitarian military dictatorship that thought nothing of blowing up or glassing inhabited planets for the 'crime' of political non-orthodoxy. Consider what the Denizens did under Jack and ask yourself if their wanting to be Stormies is a good thing... affraid

I can stay quiet no longer. JJ has found my weakness and drawn me out of the shadows of prolonged lurkdom...
I frikkin' LOVE Star Wars.

And the Denizens wearing Storm Trooper costumes is the coolest thing I have ever seen. Very Happy
You're a genius, JJ.

Would saying that i haven't seen any of the star wars movies be a bad thing on this particular thread? Laughing
