Once again we see that not even rabid fans can long resist the enticement of a cute redhead no matter what she says. *soft chuckle* Alas poor Kestrel must now fear that some will try to teach her to "Appreciate the hobbitses.".

Love the comic. It's good fun.

"Actually, I think Jar-jar was a wonderful addition to the Star War series. He fills such a key role in the dymanics of the serious, and is so wonderfully crafted, espically the attention to detail in his accent."


Might help to actually say 'LOL' or the like, but that could be pushing it.

And if any man tries to agree with the statement, kill them.

Actually, I didn't have much problem with Jar Jar. Of course, I've only watched the movie once.

NEVER be suprised of the power of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It's the geeks version of 'The Passion of the Christ.'

As for anything to do with Jar Jar, let's put it in the final perspective.
Jar Jar helped begin the clone wars (the vote in the council from ep 2 remember, unless the alcohol/drug/concussion from banging your head against the wall screaming "WHY?!?!" induced haze prevents such memories).

Before anyone jumps on me for the passion comment... I saw it when it first came out. I could barely keep from laughing at the opening scene as it looked very much like something out of the lord of the rings trilogy. Expecting Gollum to be bounding about by Jesus' side and one phrase going through my head

"Filthy Hobbits hurt the christ..."

The film would've been better if it wasn't for the drunk couple behind me talking throughout & trying to light the theater on fire.

Enjoyed the comic 8)

enough straying - for now

Kes looks good with her hair up.

Ok on to the LoTR. I've seen two of the three so far, but I've read the Tolkin (or is it "en"?) novels they are based on. I don't say this often, but the movies where better then the books. The books where so hard to follow. . .

As for ST e1/2, JAR JAR MUST DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The FX where desent, but the Gungens sucked.

Agreed. Don't get me wrong... I do appreciate the books and how Tolkien was one of the writers who helped to shape the modern fantasy genre not to mention inspiring Dungeons and Dragons. But Tolkien was not a storyteller... he was a historian. And his books read like history books.

There is little development of the characters and little insight into most of the character's emotions at any given time.... a whole whopping mass of page space devoted to describing what the mountains looked like as they marched through them, how there had been some great battle there many years ago...

And let's not forget the countless violations of the "show, don't tell" policy. There are many points in the books where we only know about something happening because a character says "Yes, well while you were schlepping about the Mirkwood and noticing the amazingly thick trees, I was....." Gandalf is specially guilty of this, having escaped from the tower of Isengard and slaying the Balrog off camera....

*sigh* Tolkien. You almost had it right, but you needed to combine them.

As to the books vs. the movies debate, I personally don't think one is better than the other because they're both rather different. Peter Jackson took much of the spirit of the books and condensed them as best he could and it still takes over 12 hours (once the extended RotK comes out) to get the full feeling of the novels. The books are wonderful because they're an entire mythology out of whole cloth, which is not an easy thing to accomplish. I've read the trilogy, the Simarillion, and the Hobbit at least 20 times each and every time there's something new to find.

And Jar Jar... well, he was annoying in the first one but there was something rather satisfying in realizing that he was the reason that the entire universe was plunged into war and darkness in the second film. :D

Oh yah. :D

And if Lord of the Rings didn't give you enough dullness of a history book, try the Silmarillion. I've attempted digging through it in my last holidays and found it so mindnumbing that I kicked it out after page 60 or so and traded it for a less-epic, shallow Anne Rice novel.
While there's still quite a bit of emotion and action packed in the Lord of the Rings (somewhere distributed over the 1200+ pages), for me, the Silmarillion was eseentially bloodless. Virtually no character development, no emotions, no rationality that was in any way conceivable by the reader and just masses of names and facts.


I am sooo glad that Peter Jackson managed to shove LotR into a movie which is entertaining, grand, epic and marvelously filmed. And cut out on Tom Bombadil, Legolas' singing and the poetry of the Ents.

Personally, I found Tom Bombadil and the Old Forest to be one of my favorite parts of the books...but that's just me. I was also, after both Fellowship and TT, dissapointed at the lack of singing, but TT: Extended Edition and RotK made it all better again, singing-wise.

More on the topic of the comic, there are things that even the most incredibly attractive female could say that would make me view them in an ill light...it's happened before. I'd get over it in time, and still talk to them, but there are just some things that don't strike me as good.

Movie taste, however...well, Aeire had it spot-on. I've been trying to convince a girl I know to watch Donnie Darko. She's seen some of it in bits and pieces (due to the fact that I'd be playing it for people in my broadcast journalism class), but not nearly the whole thing (especially since she looks away every time Frank comes on the screen). The fact that she refuses to give it a chance, of course, only makes me more determined to convince her to see it. That's my version of defending a movie, really...I won't accept someone's opinion if they have not actually viewed the entire movie, and I will make them see the entire movie. If they've seen it all and still don't like it? Fine. Until that point, however, I'm a stubborn film fan...
