Entertainment Weekly: “George Lucas defends Greedo shooting Han first”
…And the second word of my response is ‘you.’
Moe Lane (more…)
The first one. The REAL first one, dammit.
PS: HAN. SHOT. FIRST.
This thought sparked by the hysteria over the new Star Wars tickets. I rarely see a movie on Opening Night – I may have NEVER seen a movie on Opening Night* – and I certainly won’t pay 10 grand to see The Force Awakens that early. But I’m gonna make a hole in my schedule to see it as soon as possible.
What about the rest of you? What’s the earliest that you’d fight your way through the theater in order to get a seat? And what movie or movies would make you want to do it?
*I remembering going through a lot of trouble to see Serenity as soon as I could.
It’s got its hooks in me. I can feel them. Yanking me back in…
The new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is supposed to drop tomorrow, during Monday Night Football, but let’s be honest. It’s the Internet. There’s a small but measurable chance that the trailer will get leaked before I hit the Publish button.
…Let’s test that, shall we?
I thought that it was already well-known that George Lucas wrote the prequels because he grew to hate that which he created; and, by extension, hate us for being so gauche as to love it, and demand more and more of it for entirely the wrong reasons.

Erick’s right, of course – but this happened also because the Mouse wants your money.

God damn it, I can feel it starting to subvert my mind. I keep looking at it, and going Not nearly as much green screen. Nice establishing shot, there at the beginning. It could maybe… not suck?
Please, God, don’t let it suck.
This is from 2011, but my wife told me about today, so I don’t care. Machete Order is a modified version of a way to watch the Star Wars flicks… oh, let him describe it to you.
I’d like to modify this into what I’ve named Machete Order on the off chance that this catches on because I’m a vain asshole.
Next time you want to introduce someone to Star Wars for the first time, watch the films with them in this order: IV, V, II, III, VI
Notice something? Yeah, Episode I is gone.
To make it simpler: the way we learned it it would be Star Wars, Empire, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, Jedi, with Phantom Menace tossed out in the trash. And, do you know something? This is exactly how the series should be watched. Everybody must do it this way now! Science demands it!
SCIENCE DEMANDS IT!
