I liked the way they showed Yoda being proficent with the Lightsabre. I was flabbergasped when he was leaping and jumping around like a ping pong.
The concept with being a Jedi GRANDmaster does have merit. Pity everything is set in clay now. You all know what going to happen to the Jedi order don't you. That the only thing that going to spoil it for me because you know it has to match up to the Chapter 4 the new hope.
George Lucas is a terrible writer/director who got very very VERY lucky. ILM and the actors made the original series worth watching. Look at all the "improvements" he made with special edition and it becomes clear that he's a blithering idiot. Musical number? WTH is that all about? Start a cabaret or something, don't mess with my happy Star Wars memories.
I'm looking forward to Episode III, for all the awesome Star Wars Fu because that's all I've gotten out of the prequels so far. Otherwise, I have no expectations. When the two lead roles can't act themselves out of a wet cardboard box you've got problems. Oh well, at least there will be lots of death and I guess Sammy J is finally going to get some serious action scenes.
It would be nice if we could just sort of erase the prequels and have Peter Jackson redo them. Not that he's a brilliant director but he's not a moron.
Thank you Necrochild. Festive is good. Very good. And Mantis, and anyone else who is interested, my girlfriend is making me dinner right now, and my dog brought me a dead mole, but I would still like to hear NC's song :flip:
...and have "wood chips" as currency..... (damn american friends)
A few of the posters here use plastic chips as currency.
Many use potato chips.

No, you wouldn't, but here goes
It was a birthday just like any other
The alarm went off too soon
Too old for candles, bells or whistles now
Which was once this days greatest boon
A rub from the girl, a lick from the dog
While many would like that reversed
Your too busy rushing, getting dressed
For your wonderful day at work
The boss can be nice,
But today is an ***
your coworkers are working
like they've smoked too much grass
Your big day, however, the company remembered
Your present is the pile on your desk
Paperwork, sticky notes, and a dried-up pen
Add more to the birthday zest
Festive smily faces and home-cooked dinner
Even a dead mole to boot
A song sung about a day the singer knows little about
But it was a birthday song, for you
Happy B'day for the next 25 minutes EST
Then I guess it's just another day :(
That's the problem with Birthdays, they need to last longer
