Disaster Movie: "This carpet-fouling mongrel of a movie no more deserves release than do anthrax spores." -- Jim Ridley, LA WEEKLY

Babylon A.D.: "An abysmal French thriller in which everyone speaks as if they've learned their lines phonetically." -- Elizabeth WeitzmanNEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Righteous Kill: "A cop flick with all the drama of Law and Order: AARP." -- Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE

Space Chimps: "Sucks a whole lot of talented people into a wormhole of lousy." -- Michael Phillips, CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Star Wars: The Clone Wars: "A continuation of Lucas' experiments to see how much shit his dwindling supporters will take before finally saying 'enough' and moving on to adult pursuits." -- Pete Vonder Haar, FILM THREAT

Clone Wars review - Classic!

I wonder one day if millions of Nerd voices will suddenly cry out in terror and then be suddenly silenced. Then leave the house and enjoy life!

You reckon thats a rash statement?
You think 10 to 15 viewings of each individual movie isn't enough for one lifetime?
Do you still have a Boba Fett duvet?
You are really still under Lucas' mind comtrol.

LOL... exactly.

Who cares about Clone Wars. We know what happens. You know it wont be as good as the unwritten version in your head.

In novel writing what is left for the reader to imagine for themselves is always more powerful than a painstaking description byt the auther. Works the same in films, especially horror. The goriest/most scary moments are the things you don't quite see but think you did. The monsters that stay in the shadows are scarier than the Monsters that are emblazoned across the trailers and the hype posters. Lucas has failed to grasp this and is trying to explain EVERYTHING ad nausem. He's suffering from Matrix-trilogy condition.
