Why do people hate The Phantom Menace by georgeha (4.00 / 3) #1 Fri Mar 18, 2005 at 03:13:04 AM EST
can you name a better blockbuster space opera dealing with a trade war?

All the cool kids hate George Lucas. by Lost In A Dream (4.00 / 1) #3 Fri Mar 18, 2005 at 03:14:43 AM EST

I personally liked the film. And I didn't really even mind Jar-Jar all that much.

I think the conventional wisdom about Jar-Jar was in place way too quickly for most people to make honest assessments of the character. He irritated the snooty critics and the humorless nerds who'd waited in line for weeks to see the premiere, and by the time the vast majority of moviegoers got to see him for themselves, they already knew they were supposed to hate him.

conspiracy theory much? by alprazolam (4.00 / 1) #55 Fri Mar 18, 2005 at 06:02:17 AM EST
maybe it had more to do with the fact that his character had no redeeming qualities whatsoever?

[ Parent ]
he has redeeming qualities! by tps12 (4.00 / 1) #61 Fri Mar 18, 2005 at 06:37:32 AM EST
He acts as a proxy for the confused viewer. When stuff doesn't make sense (which, let's face it, is almost constantly), one of the other main characters needs to explain things to Jar-Jar in simple language. Then Jar-Jar's reaction tells you how you should feel about it.

A good example is when they decide to go back to Naboo, having only just fled there to escape attempts on the queen's life. If Jar-Jar weren't there rejoicing that "[he]sa going home," we'd be completely confused.

So, he's important for the movie itself, even if you don't like the character. As for the character, I guess that's a matter of taste. IMHO, he has some mildly amusing lines ("why were you exiled?" "Meesa...clumsy"), but he is really just a goofy cartoon, so I can see how he could get on your nerves.

And I didn't mean to sound conspiracy-ish. I just mean that people's impressions are shaped partly by their expectations, and the volume and content of press leading up to this movie meant that almost everyone who saw it had negative expectations for Jar-Jar before the lights dimmed.

Lotsa people gonna die? by Orion Blastar (4.00 / 1) #65 Fri Mar 18, 2005 at 07:03:56 AM EST
Yeah, Jar-Jar delivers clue-by-fours to those watching the film that have no idea what is going on. Only a moron can help other morons figure out what is going on.

Jar Jar "Lotsa people gonna die Annie?"

Anakin "Yes, Jar Jar, wars usually do that sort of thing. By the way, I told you I don't like being called Annie."

Then Anakin whips out a lightsaber and cuts off Jar Jar's head, continuing his journey to the dark side of the force, and causing the whole audiance to cheer that Jar Jar finally died.

Jar Jar served his purpose by Orion Blastar (2.00 / 0) #76 Fri Mar 18, 2005 at 01:21:20 PM EST
we was a tool used to convince the Senate to give Senator Palpatine emergency powers to fight the clone war now, and then refuse to release that power and form the Empire later. After that, Jar Jar does not have much use left in the next movie. In other words, he is Bantha doodoo.

I'm going to go out on a limb... by Jave27 (4.00 / 2) #4 Fri Mar 18, 2005 at 03:20:23 AM EST
and let the world know that I didn't hate, and actually kinda liked, The Phantom Menace...  I realize that I immediately lose geek points, and the die-hard zealots have killed for less than this admission, but I never thought it was a horrible debauchery of a movie.  I didn't like the edits of the original 3 to add new footage, but only because they just looked too different from the rest of the movie.

I thought some of Anakin's lines were poorly read in EP1, but overall, it was a decent movie in my opinion.  Not as good as the originals, but nothing will be.

Sorry to disappoint the zealot crowd.

Han shot first! by georgeha (4.00 / 4) #5 Fri Mar 18, 2005 at 03:26:09 AM EST
I labeled my IP'd copy of ANH the crappy copy, becuase it's the copy where Han does not shoot first, greatly changing his character and making him a less believable ruffian.

The real Han Solo wouldn't wait for some bounty hunter to draw first and risk getting killed, the real Han is a badass. Fuck you Lucas.

Of course they were kiddie films. That was (and is) the target audience.

You don't have to block them simultaneously. If you have

(those are all on different z planes), then you can tilt the lightsaber forward to block one of them:
                       ----O\                             \                       -----  \ |                             \ |                     -----    \ y  x--- 
and then bring it back to block the next two:
                                 |                                 |                            ----O| |                               | |                          ----O| y  x---

i believe tps12's argument holds water. for one thing, the light sabre is not a solid object, but rather a projection of energy constantly being emitted from the handle. there's no reason such a thing could not "move" faster than the speed of light. shadows can "move" faster than the speed of light too.

additionally, there is no reason to suppose the blasters in star wars shoot lasers, as in the movies, it's quite clear that the bursts of energy do not travel at the speed of light. in fact, they probably move slower than bullets from the look of them (a hypothesis that should seem plausible to anyone who's watched video footage of the jfk shooting a few times).

Easy. by spcmanspiff (2.00 / 0) #64 Fri Mar 18, 2005 at 06:49:53 AM EST
Light source and object are close together... big plane for observation is far away.

For each motion of the object, its projected shadow will "move" a much greater distance.

There's nothing I can think of that prevents the leading edge of that shadow from moving at any speed at all.

[ Parent ]
Yeah by DesiredUsername (2.00 / 0) #67 Fri Mar 18, 2005 at 07:12:07 AM EST
This example is a lot better than the "scissor" one I read about a few years ago.

The real ticket to understanding this is to realize that if there were civilizations living on the screen the shadow is projected on, they can't use the superluminal shadow to transmit information, which is the real Einsteinian limitation.

Yep, microscopic civilizations and the word "superluminal" is definitely the clearest way to explain this.

Remember that the Jedi are themselves constantly moving. So you have to do the calculation in the Jedi's frame of reference, where some of the plasma shots are shorter than others. You've confused by classical physics, which operates at much lower speeds than the monks are capable of (case in point: Yoda's sabre fight).

Don't think that works by Canthros (4.00 / 1) #49 Fri Mar 18, 2005 at 05:27:12 AM EST
Blaster bolts are established to move at speeds well below that of light (or sound, probably!), but I think that you'd probably find yourself stuck cutting at least one in half -- something that worked okay for samurai with arrows, but not so well for what must be blobs of high energy plasma.

That said, if the bolts were not fired simultaneously, or were fired from different enough distances, you might be in good shape.

Alternatively, it could be that those of us involved in this discussion are attempting to subject to serious physical and thematic analysis something that has all the depth of a rain puddle.
