Star Wars fans, I highly recommend reading this: http://www.nomachetejuggling.com/2011/1 ... ing-order/
It's about the viewing order of the films and why IV, V, II, III, VI
is the best. Cutting out I completely and using the two prequels as kind of a flashback sequence. It's a really interesting read and brings up some great points along the way
this is the future of star wars.
It is a thing of beauty. A trilogy in five parts.
Just read that - good find, Skippy. It sounds brilliant. I have to admit to slightly liking Darth Maul.
I think pretty much everyone LIKES Darth Maul, but it pretty much confirms what I've said before: Episiode 1 is entirely redundant. It has some great scenes (I'm rather fond of the Pod Race myself), but absolutely nothing which is important to the story and far too many things which are positively ruinous to it.
Maul should have been great. My biggest problem with phantom menace is that there is no phantom menace. i went to see that movie thinking that maul would be running around being a menace, killing jedi, assassinating senators, being generally bad ass, when infact he's on screen for like 12 minutes and then thats it.
he should have been handled the way ventress is in the clone wars series, a sith prodigy that continuely is on the front foot trying the do over jedi, strawberry float stuff up and is generally a god damn menace!
i honestly thought maul was going to be introduced in the first film and would be a main player until the end, i remember talking with mates at the time thinking that maybe he would have been the apprentice that anakin would have eventually replaced... then we saw the film
i literally walked out of my dads balls and he didn't even need to eject me. I beat you with these socks filled with cow ears so you could hear the last words i said to them before i killed them all.
