    Pffft, we all know the only good Star Wars movie was the animated clone wars movie... oh wait sorry I meant the only good Star Wars SHOW was the animated clone wars... and by that I mean the Genndy Tartksovey one from 2003-2005, not the CGI one on now.

    Still pretty good review as it treaded a good line between obviously not really making fun of it and trying to sort of sound geunine about cracking on it. Sometimes you can come off as too over the top in that regard but I'm glad you didn't do that.

    I actually like the CGI TV series more, because it has more stories to tell, the characters are more alive, and it feels like a movie serial.

    FUCK YOU THE CG SERIES SUCKS

    I'm with Eric on this
    Genndy's series focused more on the action which was cool but it's story wasn't well written and very sparse plot points. the CG one tries and succeeds with the feeling of a building story (in terms of some characters and relationships becoming what we know them as, such as Anakin's starting to distrust Obi-Wan and the Jedi Consul for a good reason. Then there's how Boba's still pretty innocent and while he's good enough to kill a bunch of trained fighters he can't take a jedi using the force).

    I love them both and consider them each as different stories from within the wars. Though I'd really like to see Dirge in the CGI series, and the 'connection' between Obi-Wan and Asaajj (if they take that from the books).

    Nice to hear your thoughts, guys.
  • Tactlesscat
    avatar
    Yeah the CG one is pretty good with building relationships.
    To the point its funny how Padme and Anakin as two rubbery CGI characters have more chemistry than their live action actors every did in Episode II.

    Radon and Xenon have more chemistry than those two did. XD

    0:00- You’re reviewing one of my 6 #1 favorite films of all time? …No. No. That’s not true! THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE!!!!! You were my friend, Lupa! I admired you!
    (And the Star Wars related comments begin.)

    You can’t win, Lupa. If you strike this film down, it shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.

    2:26- I find your lack of fear disturbing.

    3:54- Your arrogance blinds you, Obscurus Lupa.

    3:25- Don’t underestimate the characters.

    (I love the Tom Selleck joke.)

    9:35- The possibilities of Lupa (’s character) to give a crap about this movie is approximately 3,720 to 1.

    10:10- Is it possible for them to make it work?
    …Not according to the sequels and prequels.

    (At least Hasbro turned Porkins into an action figure.)

    11:58- You have been well trained, Lord Ash.

    (Seriously, nice April Fool’s episode, Lupa.)

    ... the hell?!

    Okay, April's fools, but not completely joking at the same time. No movie is perfect and cult classics are no exception.

    It's been a while since I first saw this movie, but I remember hating Luke's face; seriously, he has the same wide-opened eyes with the same half-open mouth 95% of the time.
    "I really hope I won't have to suffer through another trilogy with another protagonist who put on one expression for the advertising posters and then kept it throughout every movie." (watches The Lord of the Rings a few years later) "... It's official: God hates my guts".

    I actually found this pretty funny

    I found it a bit "forced" to be honest.

    May the April Fools force be with you Lupa!
  • chronosXD
    I always thought these movies were pretty good for their time..
  • jesper  - How it should have ended
    Great April's fools Lupa. One of my favorite inconsistencies of this movie is explained by the 'how star wars should have ended'-clip. They have done similar things for many other movies, and it's dead on.

  • rocstorm  - Wow...there's a movie I have actually seen.
    I saw this movie way back when I was kid, and forgot about it until now. Thanks for bring back the bad memories, Lupa. I have to admit though, I do remember seeing some sort of a christmas special on CBS after it came out. It was actually pretty good. I remember the guy from the Carol Burnett (sp?) show was on it. I really wish they would put that on DVD. It was hilarious but I still don't why they chose this franchise. I did see they did 6 movies of these but they also did another franchise called Star Trek. I think they had like 4 or 5 of those movies too (they're all bad but the odd numbered ones are actually the better of the group).

    I just wish they wouldn't make so many of these direct to video movies. At least make them as good as the Beethoven series or the Ernest series. At least they keep their jokes fresh. Unlike these old tired and cliched stories star bores does. Seen one, seen them all.

    Star Wars Day will always be May 25th in my book.
  • PvtHike  - Lupa, that was...
    ...not funny. Knew it was a joke. Just didn't find it funny.

    Indeed, the original Star Wars will NEVER live up to the glory of the Christmas Special.

    You should've seen the original unmastered version. More funnier.
  • rubens
    last time I checked Star Wars was a rip-off of Suburban Commando staring Hulk Hogan, so why should we watch this crap
  • Makarov  - What you did here...
    avatar
    I see it.
  • deathmaster168
    George Lucas can sure write some riveting dialogue. lol Happy April Fools

    Hey some questions and comments are legit in this tho hahaha that's the funniest part to me. Also how she mentions that this film franchise is obscure, that's hilarious. Love how she says she wants more cgi.

    You tried to make the original Star Wars look stupid. You tried so hard... ultimately, you failed.

    A for Affort.

    You tried to sound like you know what you're talking about. You tried so hard...ultimately, you failed.

    Seriously, it's obviously an april fool's joke, she didn't "try" to make it look bad, she was hitting every hot button issue that fans have with the remastered version and prequels.

    And you can make Star Wars look kinda stupid. Ever see the RiffTrax? They point out some pretty silly stuff.

    I'd love to see her go after the rest of the sequels.

    And I'd like to see her do it in the style of the Cinema snob, of which I was feeling hints of anyway...

    Fun review, it made me laugh. Happy April's fool day to you too Lupa! :D

    Slightly off-topic, but... seeing people poking fun at Porkins always make me smile. I absolutely LOVE William Hootkins, the guy who played him. Seriously guys, go check his IMBD page, read a couple of articles about him and tell me he's not awesome. So much talent in one sinlge person!
  • SpeedyEric

    And fun fact: the actor who played Wedge is the uncle of Ewan McGregor.

    Oh april fools day. This was funny though she posted it on blip a week ago. This and toonami actually made it okay afd.

    I love this video. Any praise that Lupa puts on or likes is the kind of stuff WE DON'T WANT IN STAR WARS. Vintage Star Wars George, if you can't afford to fix those classic movies then no one can.

    I ain't even mad if this was a real review . Loved SW,but something happened in youth that made me get over it: I grew the fuck old.
  • Dalus

    I watched this well before April Fools, since it showed up in the queue right after your last Frogtown review. I know what you were going for, but... Sorry, it wasn't really funny. The Rifftrax guys proved it's possible to make good jokes about a good movie, but you weren't really making any jokes. You were just pretending the whole thing was lame, and I fail to see the humor in that. I guess we could call this a worthy enough experiment, but a failed experiment, none the less.
  • Podorojnik
    Agreed. It wasn't really funny or anything.
  • Yeahwhatever
    Disagree. Very much. I actually found it was brilliant that she actually snuck real legitimate criticisms about the movie's dumber parts in along with the obvious jokes.
  • slschaefer
    We'd all love to see you review "Return of the Jedi" dressed in a Princess Leia bikini.
  • Valis77
    avatar
    yeah! we all would love to fa....er i mean see that one.
  • j_remmi  - Second slschefer
    Indeed. This needs a follow up review, with the afore-mentioned wardrobe selection. Dialogue would make such a follow up entertaining, but if no ideas are forthcoming, I think such a wardrobe... uh review... will still be successful.

    I realy hope you were joking..lol i'm a nerd of the star wars universe lol
