lol wasn't star war based of a japanese movie. I forgot what it was called but some of my esteem colleagues here at AnimeSuki might know..... :uhoh:

nero.anike 2004-10-28 01:08

seven samurai?

"Once their ship has been drawn by the "tractor-beam" into the control of the empire, they then connect their droid - R.2.D.2 - to the Death-Star's main computer (via the Internet) and R.2.D.2 finds the location of the power-source controlling the "tractor-beam" which is keeping them from leaving and makes it appear on the computer-monitor..."

I really like how this guy puts tractor-beam in quotation marks.

i stopped reading that article after it blamed satan for making episode one and that Star Wars is a message from God. Bullshit. Star Wars freaks are inheritly egotistical. They think too highly of themselves and the things they love. Nobody but other star wars fans give a shit about star wars. And if there is a God, he isn't nessisarly a fan of star wars. And if there is a Satan, he doesn't nessisarly want to destroy star wars. Too many fucking people create a God in their image and too many star wars fanatics put george lucus above humanity.

To hell with Star Wars. The movie wasn't that great and George Lucus will never be known for any other masterpiece. A genius of any kind is known for what they have done, not what they have created.

Jeez, Star Wars... it's done more harm than good over the years. Its rehash of 1930s-style space opera has somehow gotten confused with science fiction in the minds of the lazy, and led to no end of slack-jawed rubbishy "sci-fi" in films and on TV. Trying to get it to mean something is an exercise in futility.

Geniuses' aren't known for what they create? Do you mean geniuses like Picasso, Van Gogh, Rodin or Da Vinci?

yes, exactly! Picasso for example was known for being an abstract painter. He has many truely wonderful works of art, but no one painting truely highlights his creativity.

the same cannot be said about george lucus.

Dhomochevsky 2004-10-28 02:52

Ok, didnt need to read that much after all.
First lines into that text, that guy trys to tell me he used "the force" to tell lucas what film to make, which implies
a) he knew the whole story before lucas did and he knew who would make a film from it
b) he can use "the force" (wtf!)

So.. is this guy serious? Because if he is, then forget about it... hes nuts.
If not.. maybe the text is funny or something for a star wars fan.. everyone else forget about it again.

Trying to create a new religion ? Oh and dont forget the Startrekies :)

Anita-chan 2004-10-28 04:23

stupid stupid stupid, however i agree theres a god, whether i choose to believe him or not is a different matter :) hmmm, as for the film, i didnt like any of the star wars films, it was so stupid =.= it might have been one of the "legendary" films over here in the UK, but i dont understand why every (nearly) white nation/country enjoys watching so much sci-fi .... :confused:

As human beings, we have a natural facination towards bronze homosexual robots, and midgets operating trash bins.

Dhomochevsky 2004-10-28 04:55

SciFi rules!! :frustrated:
but starwars is not real scifi, just because it features space, scpaceships and big ass lasercannons... :uhoh: Its more like fantasy in the future.. with magic "force" and all that.

hmm.. anyway I could name a ton of great scifi books, but I cant think of any good film right now. damn you holywood! :heh:

Heh, so this guy, who is proclaiming himself as a new age prophet to us all, is telling us that he tried a bazillion times to tell George Lucas, TELEPATHICALLY I MIGHT ADD, to follow his script (that addresses the truth about everything in the world) instead of using his own free will to create Episodes 1-3... amazing. Excuse while I vomit out everything that I read on his site.

I wonder what this guy does for a living. I'm surprised he doesn't have an Evangelion link in his site.

Who again later had a movie called Yojimbo that was as well ripped off into a cowboy movie called... A Fist Full of Dollars.

I would be haunting the crap out of those people if I were Kurosawa.

HoboGod 2004-10-28 07:04

yes, but lets face it, Akira Kurosawa had too many great films. But they were made during a time when America (among many places) knew very little about the japanese culture. If those films weren't bastardized into western and fantasy films, then most of the western world would just mock them like a poorly dubbed Godzilla film.
