If I remember right, he sorta stood up straight when he was igniting his four lightsabers right before going at it with Obi-Wan.

And then he immediately hunches back over. It's that bad deathstick habit that's crippling him like that.

The Bond soundtracks are out of the rotation in my truck CD player, and my Star Wars soundtracks are in. Been listening to them the last few days, and I think Williams' scores have gotten better as time went on. Sith is an amazing score.

Here's a little Star Wars holiday racism for you, courtesy of MSNBC:

I guess you can find racism anywhere if you look hard enough, and there are some people who will NEVER stop looking hard for it...

Personally, I think that this sort of thing HURTS the cause of racial equality. It's like "The Boy Who Cried Wolf". You call out racism in ways that sound absurd often enough, and people stop listening to you even when you call out LEGITIMATE cases of racism.

I've heard variations of this argument years ago. Then, the thought was that they could've just used James Earl Jones when they reveal him. Of course, part of the problem would be that you would have to explain away (though it's not impossible) why his two kids are so white bread.

ok, three things:
1) this woman must never have actually seen SW (or, more specifically, ESB) given her comment that Vader never claimed his son.......

2) her being butthurt over the fact that Vader stopped sounding like J.E.J. is quite obviously attributed to the fact that she'd never realized the man was wearing a life support outfit & had a speaker for a mouth.

and finally, 3)

This lady didn't mention the part that, while in the Black suit, he saves his son from the Emperor, which is before he reveals that he's white.



She knows nothing about Star Wars and needs to shut up. Now, where's that Stormtrooper "Move along" meme?

She must have watched Chasing Amy and got all her Star Wars information from there.

Seeing as how spoilers are already circulating on the Internet and the movie will be dropping soon, please, everyone, be sensitive to those that won't be seeing this movie for a little while and be very careful when posting spoilers.

Ideally you would black out as much as possible and also label spoilers well in advance so people don't accidentally read them. I know everyone is pretty good with that sort of thing already so we don't have much to worry about, just wanted to re-state it.

Also if another Mod could change the title of the thread to reflect spoilers within that would be awesome, I can't on my phone.

I myself am avoiding this thread until I see the movie.

Well the one guy who doesn't know how to censor spoilers is still not around so I think we are good.

That review of the Ewoks movies does contain spoilers for those movies.
