You can have Natalie Portman if I can have Keira Knightley.

We were supposed to think that non-Natalie-Portman person was the Queen? Ooooooh!

Now accepting suggestions for a new sigline

Not exactly well-executed, was it. Actually, I fell for it on first viewing...I knew she was also playing Padmé, but I thought that was just a weird casting choice, and chalked up the Queen not looking like her to makeup.

The confusingest thing is in the second movie when it becomes clear that her name is Padmé Amidala. Very clever pseudonym there.

Is that there was a second movie.  Fuck Pepsi and their 1.4 billion in pig-in-a-poke merchandoising money.

America is in a special predicament due to a set of unfortunate choices we made as a society in the twentieth century. Perhaps the worst was to let our towns and cities rot away and to replace them with suburbia, which had the additional side effect of trashing a lot of the best farmland in America. Suburbia will come to be regarded as the greatest misallocation of resources in the history of the world. It has a tragic destiny. The psychology of previous investment suggests that we will defend our drive-in utopia long after it has become a terrible liability.

Before long, the suburbs will fail us in practical terms. We made the ongoing development of housing subdivisions, highway strips, fried-food shacks and shopping malls the basis of our economy, and when we have to stop making more of those things, the bottom will fall out.

you ignorant clod!

And shoes! Shoes for everyone who walks everywhere! Shoes made by Chinese prison labor -- out of non-renewable man-made synthetics! Evil, evil walkers!

No, the evil walkers are in SW-V by georgeha (3.00 / 1) #11 Wed Apr 06, 2005 at 05:01:57 AM EST
though there will be clone walkers in SW III, but I don't think they're evil yet.
