today during class something happened. My friend got there late and so missed the beginning of it so, once she…
Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones
A Jedi Shall Not Know Anger. Nor Hatred. Nor Love.
Ten years after the invasion of Naboo, the galaxy is on the brink of civil war. Under the leadership of a renegade Jedi named Count Dooku, thousands of solar systems threaten to break away from the Galactic Republic. When an assassination attempt is made on Senator Padmé Amidala, the former Queen of Naboo, twenty-year-old Jedi apprentice Anakin Skywalker is assigned to protect her. In the course of his mission, Anakin discovers his love for Padmé as well as his own darker side. Soon, Anakin, Padmé, and Obi-Wan Kenobi are drawn into the heart of the Separatist movement and the beginning of the Clone Wars.
obi-wan: the planet is supposed to be right here but it's not, can you get the children to help me find it
yoda: dude it's right there
obi-wan: oh yeah
Caught this on TV in France when I was on vacation a couple years ago, and even though I could hardly understand a word of the dubbed version, I was enraptured by its images and its miraculous sense of sound design (those Seismic Charges tho). Watching it with the dialogue intact is frustrating, especially because Lucas' vision is so grand and ambitious. It's like watching a child trying to put a puzzle together. You want to help them along the way, but it is essential that the child works through it on their own. The uneasiness comes from the idea that they'll never solve the puzzle.
That little green fella from the Vodafone ads must be desperate for money to appear in this shit.
Don't let Jar-Jar Lloyd fever cloud your mind; this is the worst Star Wars in a walk. It's every bit the simpleton kids tale as the first, but now it's dressed up in guise of a movie meant for grown-ups (or whatever passes for grown-up among die-hards). This leads to love scenes that sound like they were written by an 11-year-old and an emphasis on action that makes up for the relative dearth of it in the last film by just throwing as much shit as possible into the frame, nearly all of it animated so that the few genuine, living people in a shot are really just waving sticks about.
Speaking of the animation, the combination of flat animation…
The fifth instalment in the Star Wars saga and the second chapter in George Lucas' prequel trilogy, Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones has all the ingredients that made The Phantom Menace such a repugnant piece of shit and although it offers no improvement over its pathetic dialogues, wooden characters, lacklustre performances & lame attempts at humour, it does manage to be minutely less unbearable than its predecessor.
Set 10 years after the events of The Phantom Menace in a galaxy far, far away, Attack of the Clones finds the galaxy on the brink of a civil war and follows Anakin Skywalker who's now put in charge of taking care of the Senator he happens to have a…
No luck swaying the kids to my side with this one. The 9-year-old during the picnic scene: "Which one of these two would you pick to be stuck with in a room?"
Der Film beweist, dass Episode 1 kein Versehen war. Die teils furchtbaren Dialoge, die ULTRA-schmalzige Liebesbeziehung, die mit CGI überfüllten Schlachten sowie die unrealistischen und teils überinszenierten Lichtschwertkämpfe machen diesen Film zu einer weiteren Enttäuschung. Der Score und die Figur des Obi-Wans konnten mich aber noch überzeugen.
Much like with The Phantom Menace, I re-watched Attack of the Clones along with the commentary by Griffin Newman and David Sims for their podcast. They dislike the movie significantly more than I do (though I was clearly high when I gave it 2.5 stars the last time I saw it), hating the final act especially - the only part of the movie I actually like. Oh well, different people have different tastes.
By far the worst of the Star Wars films. Outside of some minor cool sequences starring McGregor's Obi-Wan Kenobi, we're subjected to scene upon scene of Portman and Christiansen's wooden acting. And George Lucas thought that throwing every lightsaber and laser into the ring will save this crap-heap.
Por alguna misteriosa razón, a la mayoría de la gente le gusta más la primera trilogía, es decir, la antigua, pero a mi me gusta más la primera, es decir la nueva.
Even worse than the first one.
Actually that's harsh, this starts well enough but once that 2nd hour kicks in it becomes the cinematic equivelant of having you head ever so lightly tapped by a hammer for 60 minuutes.
My girlfriend agreed that Hayden Christensen is the worst actor in cinematic history and that his rapey come-on's towards Natalie Portman were creepy as hell. We both agreed he used the Jedi-Mind trick to make her fall in love with him.
Christopher Lee is the best thing in this.
Ehh, this one was more interesting than entertaining. The actor for Ani did not fit his role very well, you failed us George Lucas
Dark side is approaching.... intergalactic romance, murder and mayhem, light sabers and.... my dear old green one! I guess it was time to watch this finally.
DULL DULL DULL DULL
Acting of both Portman and Christensen is unbearable. Not good. NOT GOOD AT ALL
"but I don't care what they say
i'm in love with you
they try to pull me away
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
