Darth Maul opening the door to find a bunch of Jedi killed me.
post #102 of 2058
Should we have a "mid-release" thread?
post #103 of 2058
One of the Jedi confronting Darth Maul was a fat dude in a striped shirt. With a lightsaber.

And fuck yes on the moronic "Jedi can't get married" shit.

I believe that was the infamous Star Wars kid.

That's awesome.

Yeah, Maul with the door was a great bit, as was the "Palpatine's behind it all" part. The cutaways to the girls seem a little forced though.

Those girls will be dead by part 6.

So while we're waiting...who would win in a fight: Plinkett or Uncle Mitch?

Part 3 takes it to the next level. This is what I love about these things, a nine minute deconstruction of why everything is wrong.
post #112 of 2058
And again, he nails it with the "assassin who hires another assassin to do his job" bit. That was a pretty major WTF for me when I watched it too.

Two seconds of seriousness: I always figured Palpatine was manipulating that relationship, or at least that he was giving Anakin the visions of Padmé dying.

Back to the bitch who kicked the pizza rolls.

Belated props to Joe Lieberman as Palpatine's double.

The "what women really want" list has tears streaming down my face. Oh my God.
post #117 of 2058
Holy shit, the trash bag bit took this over the top.
post #118 of 2058
I'm loving how the relationship between Plinkett and the abducted woman has more narrative structure than Anakin and Padme.

"Then there's even robots floating outside the window, and Anakin doesn't even seem to notice this. And the last assassination attempt was by a robot at the window. Fucking Helen Keller could assassinate her at this point."

Awesome.

Sad/hilarious thing is, I was nodding along to most of it. The guy knows his shit.
post #125 of 2058
Awesome stuff, but even the commentary just barely made the Padme/Anakin scenes watchable. I can't believe I sat thru this as a kid.

Actually, I can. Jango Fett dual-wielding blasters? Tight!

"No, no you racist. No."

I love this man.

Part 5 of this review should be sent to every guy trying to date a woman. Every single point in here is dead-on. Take notes, fellas!

Hispanic Nien Numb, Jewish Salacious Crumb and gay Darth Maul.

George Lucas's inability to understand women is comedy gold. Though I don't totally believe SLJ's casting was simply because he was black, the point about how Lucas designed the film to widespread appeal is dead fucking on.

I don't know, the ladies seem to like it when I tell them I support fascism.
post #134 of 2058
That zoom-in of Sam Jackson's crazy eyes made me spit out my drink laughing. God, this shit is gold!
post #135 of 2058
Seriously though, how fucking hard would it have been to NOT write the scene where Anakin whines about slaughtering sand people? Lucas actually went out of his way to include a scene where Anakin comes off as a horrible, evil douchebag to the woman who agrees to marry him like three days later. All Anakin would have had to do is return home wordlessly with his mother's body, and suddenly it's completely understandable: she feels sorry for him. Still a lousy basis for a marriage, but at least it fucking makes sense.

I'm voting early for Kit Fisto-Lightsaber danger as my favorite joke. Long neck Jedi: "I know where I'd swing for HIM."
post #137 of 2058
"THAT T'WIRP"

Clever.
post #138 of 2058
Damn, I completely forgot the training ball thing. It really is amazing how Lucas managed to undercut so much of the original trilogy.
post #139 of 2058
Big fan of that one, too. So far, part seven is my favorite. Now I'm starting to worry about all the stuff he won't cover.

This thing's been out for hours and pt. 1 has only just cracked 300 views. I like to think that audience is 100% CHUD.
post #140 of 2058
Shit! I'm all caught up, but it seems Part 8 isn't uploaded yet!

Well, I wouldn't trust that at all. It's been stuck at that number pretty much since it first went up. I have no idea how often it's updated but it's definitely not instantaneous.

I've only watched Part 1 so far and I can tell it'll be like how I thought of their Episode I review. As long as I'll ignore the most offbeat attempts at "humor", I'll love it. For example, the last minute of Part 1 I'll never watch, as it just doesn't amuse me.

Anyhow, just from Part 1 I have a feeling that I'll enjoy it as much as their massive deconstruction of Episode I.

This had me literally unable to breathe by the end of it. Golden.

The incredibly spot-on look at why Sam Jackson is even in the movie in the first place is brilliant. He's a lot more caustic and tell-it-like-it-is when it comes to Lucas as a cynical businessman this time around.

I'm still trying to work out how he's able to get away with this and use all this copywrited footage actually. Surely if a Lucas lawyer saw this they'd order it removed?

Either way tho, this is just awesome, yet at the same time it's making me angry reminding me what an absolute cynical money-grabbing conjob the prequels are on anyone that grew up with the original trilogy.
post #145 of 2058
The problem with the Sam Jackson stuff is that Jackson actively campaigned to be in the STAR WARS prequels over and over again from the moment Lucas announced he was writing them. Lucas didn't target Sam Jackson because he thought it would bring in a different demographic. Jackson targeted Lucas because he really wanted to be in a fucking STAR WARS film.

Sorry, but I couldn't resist.

Yeah, the bit in Part 2 with the fat kid in the striped shirt IS indeed Star Wars Kid. Awesome.

Well, Part 8 is now up (that's what... oh, you know it) so it'll be all uploaded soon. I'll have to watch it all from beginning to end on Sunday, even though I don't really have the time to as I have other things to do, but I'll make time for it anyhow.

I hate to say it, but 10+ years of unhealthy Star Wars obsession is making me cringe every time he says Boba Fett, which I think is the point.

It puts a spotlight on what a shallow character Jango was as well. He's nothing more than a recolored Boba Fett action figure, whether on screen or on the toy shelves.
post #149 of 2058
He's definitely nailing the movie on most of the big-ticket problems. Though I miss some of the smaller nitpicking that peppered the MENACE review (like pointing out the disappearing-reappearing run-real-fast Jedi trick).

For example, it drove me crazy from day fucking one that Anakin and Obi-Wan couldn't simply use the Force to unlock their handcuffs when they're in the arena. Were they Force-proof handcuffs?!

In the video-game you pull a freaking Star Destroyer out of orbit, I'm surprised Obi-Wan didn't rip the whole damn pole out of the ground and beat that bug thing to death with it.
