Don't know how many of y'all give a steaming load of Rodian poo about this stuff, but the first trailer for Star Wars: Episode 2 is on-line, and it's pretty cool. Watch the trailer and play "Where's Jar-Jar?".

(Incidentally, I saw K-PAX on the weekend. I liked it. I liked it better the first time I saw it, when it was called Starman. Still, it was a decent couple of hours.)

But there've been more than two episodes of the new Star Wars. I saw the fifth or sixth one just last night.

How does it look? I don't feel like downloading the newest version of a player to see it. Seems you need a new one everytime you want to watch a trailer.

Where IS Jar-Jar? Hopefully flung down the pit of Sarlac.....

Has anyone caught 'Episode 1: The Phantom Edit'? All superfluous Jar-Jar scenes are omitted - makes a much better movie!

Hi gang:

I hope Lucas traded Jar Jar in for a decent script writer. Episode One had dialogue only slightly less leaden than the tedious trade embargo nonsense that scrolled off into a galaxy far, far away where it belonged.

Kneel, I saw KPAX too and thought it was a very lazy script. It sets up two possibilities and then doesn't make them mutually exclusive. Thought Spacey chewed the scenery like a frightened puppy too.

Speaking of scripts, I was just talking with someone about This Morning with Osama. This guy was convinced he'd heard this exact send-up on the radio. "I don't know who the woman was who did it, but she got Shiela's voice exactly."

I showed him the piece on rabble and he said, "I didn't hear it, I saw it on rabble!"

Now that is a good script writer.

Wow, no kidding. To write something that creates an auditory memory. That's a good goal to have.

Apparently, there's a remarkable number of people who are convinced they saw the assassination of JFK live on TV. They might have seen the killing of Lee Harvey Oswald, but not Kennedy. It wasn't televised.

My this thread drifted fast. Yeah, mediaboy, I don't get it -- there are already four Star Wars movies out there, and I saw the sixth one recently. What's going on here?

I really can't wait to see Episode Nine: The Final Credits.

This confected, hyped up franchise has definitely exceeded its proper lifespan.

Full disclosure: I was a huge Star Wars fan as a kid. That was then. This is now.

PS I didn't really see the sixth one recently, I saw it in 1983.

Okay, I am supposed to have a laughing emoticon here. But I click image, paste the link and nothing comes up. Why does this work only sometimes? Why can't we just use HTML? Why?

This, of course, is totally unrelated to your comments rasmus, which I thought were entirely funny and deserving of a laughing emoticon. Which I would dutifully display if this #!@&% system would take the link properly.

Star Wars: A New Hope (1977) was Episode 4. This was originally meant as a joke. Star Wars was created partly as an homage to the old Flash Gordon serials. Each installment of the old Flash Gordon serials began with the episode name, number and a brief synopsis of what happened in the previous episode scolling up the screen, just like at the beginning of each Star Wars installment.

Then the sequels came out, and Lucas was up to Episode 6. Fans begged and begged for the first three episodes, so eventually Lucas decided to make them.

One of these days I have got to post the paper I wrote about the origins and mythological aspects of Star Wars on the internet.

I'll wait to see it. Apple wants to charge me $29.99 US + tax to watch the darn trailer.

Nice product tie in Lucas.

I saw the trailer when I took my kids to see Monsters Inc.

Hmmmmmm ....

It sucked.

A lot of heavy breathing and glimpses of the movie. Obi Wan has a beard now and Anakin gets the babe. No Jar Jar though, thank god!

Apparently YODA kicks evil ass in this episode - I will pay to see that.

Interesting, I have read the synopsis for Episode III and apparently Anakin gets put into the Darth Vader life support costume after he challenges Obi Wan to a duel in the climax of the movie - Apparently Obi Wan kicks Anakin's ass, cuts off Anakin's hand and damn near kills him - hence the turn to the dark side and the groovy black costume.

Anyway, BRING ON SPIDERMAN!!! MAY 3 2002!!!

WOO HOO!!!!

Sherpa,

You must take a knife, cut off your right arm and send it to George Lucas with a self-addressed & stamped envelope.

He's tired of dealing with paper currency and has instead demanded the more poignant form of offerings from his minions by requesting pounds of flesh.

You only need Quicktime Pro to view the largest version of the trailer. The free version of Quicktime is enough to watch the lower-resolution versions.

That's an awesome cartoon.

And, FYI. Jar Jar *is* in trailer. If you look closely behind Amidala as she is walking into the room, he's there.

The good news is that his screen time was cut to around 5 minutes in this movie.

I just watched the trailer. What a yawn. I think I'll save my $13.50 and donate it to the United Way or something. The idea of sitting through a film about an impertinent teenager is of little interest.

What I find surprising is that this film will take about $1 BILLION US out of the economy. Hmm...I wonder if someone on this site could come up with a better use for the money. That makes the money taken out of Ontario's child care program look like pocket change.
