YS Chronicles: Pic Wars

Younger Sister: I told you not to put that picture up, I wish I’d never showed you.
Saima: Well he shouldn’t get pictures taken with make-up and girl’s clothes on then.
Younger Sister: I can’t believe you did that to him!
Saima: He has done that himself.

Attack of the Clooneys

Episode II? Meep. Though it was marginally better than the first one I am yet to be impressed by the whole Star Wars phenomenon. The acting was plain awkward in parts and C-3PO‘s ‘comedy’ was painful at best. I’d have to advice George Lucas to at least introduce more eye candy into his movies to try and spice things up a bit. Perhaps by casting George Clooney as the bounty hunter? A thousand Clooneys could certainly have turned things around.
Saying all that, I don’t have a heart of stone and did nearly enjoy the following elements of the movie:

  • Padmé‘s outfits were stunning.
  • The Yoda vs. Count Dooker fight scene was pretty kick-ass. Yoda’s wiley for an old guy who usually needs a stick to walk…
  • They got married! I have a feeling it won’t last though. What with that huge chip on his shoulder and all those Mother issues he has.
  • That “Sorry love, I’ve just chopped your arm off” bit woke me up.

I’m going to watch Episode III at the cinema tomorrow and I predict that things are going to turn pretty nasty. I really don’t trust that Senator Palpatine for a start.

Revenge of the Phantom Clones or something

I watched my first ever Star Wars movie last night….I know, I know, it’s only taken me 25 years. I wasn’t overly impressed but I hear that they do get better so I’ll brave the other two and then go back and watch the old ones for completeness. I did however make the following observations and am issuing the following warnings:

  • If anything called Jar Jar Binks comes near me I will throttle it. Mesa find you really bloomin’ annoying.
  • Sound like Miss Piggy, Yoda does.
  • Liam Neeson (who plays Gin Gan Gooly Gooly I think) is really really tall.

(Apologies to all Star Wars fans, please don’t send Darth Maul around…..why was he in it for like all of three seconds??)
