Glad I’m Not Alone…

June 26, 2010

From a comment on Her Universe’s Facebook page:

And many of the selections are limited in stores. The ones in Wal-Mart and Target here are boring, faded “Old Trilogy” shirts – as if no one likes the prequel trilogy or the cartoon. I would love to have an Anakin shirt of his ‘Revenge of the Sith’ appearance, but there are none available here, and I haven’t gotten around to ordering one online. And having various female characters on shirts…not a big thing for stores, based on the shirts I’ve seen. The boys under 10 get Clone Wars shirts, but apparently adults are not supposed to like the animated series. *rolls eyes*

Not that I mind stuff from the first set of Star Wars movies but this “Let’s Ignore The Prequels” bit is what really bugs me. I’m glad I’m not the only fan who has noticed.

Frank Darabont On TPM In 2000

June 17, 2010

sabreman64 sent me this link to an interview from 2000 with Frank Darabont, who had a lot of good things to say about TPM:

The problem is that everybody who saw those movies has grown up, and their memory of the impact of those films has been diluted through the years. [The films have] become so iconic that disappointment was inevitable. George Lucas is capable of many, many things. But making you feel like that wonder-struck eight-year-old again isn’t one of them. It can’t be done. You’re not eight years old; you can’t be wonder struck in the same way. Sorry. In terms of its intelligence and its approach, I’d put MENACE up there with EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, which was the darkest and most adult of the original trilogy.
