Star Wars: What I hate

Starting a **** session on all the Star War movies,

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
Watched it with the kids last night, two things

1. When Obi-Wan Kenobi fixes the underwater transporter when it loses all power, by just opening a door and fiddling with a couple of wires - WTF?

2. If the Jeti can sence fear, good, bad, evil and such, how is it Queen Amidala fooled them into thinking she was one of the handmaidens?

Can you tell I am bored at work today?

    I don't remember them being suprised at any time to see that? Haven't watched the whole thing in a while though.

    I agree completely. I thought the exact same thing when I saw it.

    Well they stomp around with "Padme" most of the movie, PADME "the Queen would not be pleased" QUI-GON JINN "the Queen trusts my judgement" Then when Padme reveals to the Gungans King BOSS NASS that she is really the queen and Sab

    I do the same thing when my wife catches me "I knew that"

    Now that you mention it, I have never turned on the directors narrative on any DVD, I barely try any of the extras.

    Has anyone in here read the book(s) on Star Wars? does Lucus follow them?

    I hate the fact that SW is not NC-17 and Natalie is not naked.

    Peace Out~:D

    Ron dislikes a film = go out and buy it.
    Ron loves a film = don't even rent.

    I have read the AotC novel. It follows the movie exactly and provides a lot of background material. I had a better appreciation for the movie after reading the book.

    Good one Ron.

    Maybe you can e-mail George and ask for a special request for the third and last movie.

    I'd rather have a special "adult" (interactive) edition DVD. That way, George can continue to sell toys with the mainstream "G" rated versions at the cinemas and I can watch Natalie over and over again buck nekkid in the "R" pr "NC-17" at home.:D

    I could go on for days with this thread, but I don't think I could handle the stress.
