The originals, in my opinion, had a very boring and somewhat cliché plot (you, saving the galaxy and all). I much more enjoyed the tragedy of Anakin's downfall in the prequels than Luke's conquest to save the galaxy.

    And it's not like it's because I'm a "new-gen" or whatever. My dad is a huge original Star Wars fan, so I grew up watching the originals several times before watching the prequels. When I watched the prequels, I was amazed how much more I was drawn to the character of Anakin and the whole overall feel than the character of Luke and the overall feel to the originals.

    Of course, I won't be surprised that you will probably say something about me being a naive Fi-user or whatever to discredit what I have to say.
    Anakin wasn't very well done. The overall plot of the prequels had some interesting and subtle things to say about the destruction of democracy and the arrogance of the Jedi Order... but Anakin? Meh... could've been done so much better.

    Helldriver. Ugh. Been going through and watching movies with Eihi Shiina. Wonderful stuff to watch while studying. Don't really have to pay much attention to what's going on (possibly even better off NOT paying tons of attention) to follow the story . . . just look up every so often and go 'wtf?' and laugh. It was a bit too long for my liking though.

    - The Artist. Very charming. I liked. Black and white films are so soothing. As is an absence of dialogue or crashing sound effects.
    - Blue Velvet. Loved the opening scenes. But David Lynch loses me when he spins off into the land of the nonsensical. Seems too forced and then silly. I liked the premise though and I always seem to love his choice in music. Been humming "In Dreams" for days.
    - Persona. Hmm, still thinking about this one. I don't think I'll end up dwelling on it for too long as I guess it's highly ambiguous by design.

    Hmm... perhaps I'm wrong, but I presume that (and most people don't seem to admit this, but...) Anakin didn't live up to the picture that fans had created in their mind before the PT came out (the old Star War fans, anyway). I can't help but think they idealized him to be better than he was when they were mostly ignorant of his flaws. Didn't they figure that Obi-Wan only mentioned Anakin's virtues and left out most of his vices so he wouldn't upset Luke, and that Obi-Wan may have ignored some of his flaws and exaggerated his virtues because he was his best friend?

    The Phantom Menace in 3D. It was The Phantom Menace in 3D.

    And Jake Lloyd was a helluva lot more annoying than Jar Jar, I've decided.

    I stand by it, though, I liked the movie better than Return of the Jedi, which was my least favorite of the series.

    A Bullet for the General

    I saw a most marvellous movie last night. It is called, "A Bullet for the General", and although it is a spagetti Western, it touches exquisitely on the relationship between the literate man and the man of the spoken word.

    And the movie mirrored perfectly what is happening in Afganistan today where our Afgan friends are shooting us.

    Yes, our Afgan friends are men of the spoken word and feel compelled to shoot their literate friends who are there to help them.

    This may seem irrational but literacy kills the spoken word, so in turn, those of the spoken word kill the literate.

    This has happened worldwide as the literate individual meets the traditional tribal man of the spoken word.

    For in the beginning was the spoken word, and the spoken word was with Allah, and the spoken word was Allah.
