Just saw Attack of the Clones again. It wasn’t as good the second time. Now I’m wondering if sitting in the very front row had something to do with my initial enthusiasm. It just seemed like stuff was happening on-screen constantly. This time (from the back row) I found myself getting bored quite a bit. Yoda and Obi-Wan still rock my world, though.

  1. Mmm… Obi Wan! Although after reading Obi Wan/Darth Maul slash fan fiction, I’ll never look at my favorite Jedi Knight the same way. ;>

  2. Noooooo don’t say that. I need to see it a few more times just to keep up with what was going on in the background.

  3. see? i told ya, it sucks! did you notice the millenium falcons in the background of one of the scenes? that was at least something cool…

  4. I have experienced the first row effect. I was like 30 feet from a 200 foot screen when I saw The Talented Mr. Ripley. Even though I had to constantly scan my eyes back and forth just to see the whole screen, I really got into it, more than I normally do at movies. I still like that movie even though 95% of the world seems to think it sucks. I’m even a Matt Damon fan now. The 1st row effect can be quite powerful.

  5. I want that slash fiction! Where do you find this stuff? Hook a sister up.

    The front row effect is indeed powerful. I shall heed this in a few weeks… when we finally see Spider-Man! (I was the very first person in South Sydney to buy tickets for the midnight showing.)

    Millennium Falcon? You’re on crack. Are you sure you’re not referring to, say, the Death Star or something?

    Sidenote: I misspelled millennium once in an e-mail to the Snook before we were going out. He replied that one of his professors told them to remember the roots of the word: “mille” for thousand, and “annus” for year. If you don’t put the double “n” in, it means something else entirely. 🙂

  6. not the death star. i even know what that is, and i don’t even like star wars that much! i swear, it was that one ship, the falcon – the one the good guys had in the later movies. i think it was when padme and anakin were getting to naboo. i’m gonna try to look it up, i know i saw it! ‘member the last one with the et’s? i think he throws fun things in there like that for fans…

    There were M.Falcons at the end of the film when they were showing the clone army I think. Could have been at some other point but there were some there.

    Keep the peace!

  8. Finally found some backup: “Millennium Falcon cameo – Lucas himself sneaked in Han Solo’s famous Millennium Falcon just to the left of the screen on the ground when Anakin and PadmĂ© dock on her home planet of Naboo. “It was a subtle homage,” the director says. When Anakin and PadmĂ© arrive on Naboo, you’ll spot three Millennium Falcons in the background and at the docking station. (AZ Republic, USA Today).” I only remember seeing one, though.

    And did you see the 3 N*Syncers? Apparently, the rumors were true, I guess they’re in a couple of scenes. Hilarious! I didn’t catch them, but I do wanna see that if you can find a capture of it!

  9. You want slash fiction? I got some for ya!

    Visit The Sith Academy’s Adult Page for the Obi Wan/Darth Maul slash I mentioned earlier. They’re part of a continuing series. If you go to the main Sith Academy page, you can find the rest of the stories (though not all are NC-17).

    I can point you to some Harry Potter slash, too, if you’re interested. ;D

  10. wah-hey! Saw it again last night. Its still good the second time round. Damn didn’t see the Falcons – will have to go again now 🙂

    Also did you notice that Yoda referred to Dooku as “my old padawan …” so its not only Obi Wans ones that go bad.

    Yoda deffinately kicks butt as do the Jedi.
