Harrison Ford was a part time carpenter/cabinet maker doing some work around the studios and was hanging a new door either in Lucas's office or an adjoining one during the casting stages...Spielberg had used him for a bit in American Graffiti and he and Lucas were pals so...talk about being in the right place etc...

"Back door, huh? Good idea!"

"I think you'll fit in nicely." - Hmm Not sure sounds like a 3P0'ism but I cant place it


"There's an awful lot of moisture in here."

Princess Lea? Inside the Asteroid Worm in Empire strikes Back.

"Wedge! Pull out! You're not doing any good back there!"

Luke Skywalker, Canyon Run on the death star - A New Hope

"You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought."

Lea to Han as the Make a run for the falcon when they Escape the Death Star in A new hope

"You've got something jammed in here real good."

Luke When he Cleans Up R2 on Tatooine in A New Hope

"I never knew I had it in me."[/quote]

Hmmm Tricky But I think C3P0 after he is levitated above the Ewoks by Luke in Return of the Jedi.

Funny this, cos I`ve been watching the entire Star Wars saga over the last month and even though I,II and III have great special effects (and II and III a reasonable story), IV, V and VI are still the best, with possibly V being the best one for me.

But then I always like it when the empire are winning... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

"All too easy..."

Who said that? Clue, it`s from film V.

HuninMunin

V is just the best movie of all.
Both technicaly ( picture composition and atmoshperic assembly ) and narratively (?).

In addition I have found that the more often I see the film, the more I think that Mark Hamill does an outstanding job, achieving some of the greatest dramatic moments of the saga.
And I don't mean the big "Noooooooooooooooooo" at the end.
I mean the way he acts with a Muppet in conversations of slightly philosophical contend
and makes me believe this Muppet is indeed not only not a puppet but even a wise and powerfull character.
I just wish to go back in time and remind Lucas of his decision not to direct anymore wich he himself made after A New Hope...
I really don't blame him much as a writer for the sequels - although there too a little bit Lawrence Kasdan could have meant a lot - but on very poor directing.

Well see wether Indy 4 will be of any worth...

I II and III are abominations the only good thing to emerge from that was Darth Maul and they killed him off in the first episode - madness

The quote was from Darth Vader as he flips the switch to the 'Carbon Freezer ma gig' During their sabre battle

Correct! bah, should`ve gone for harder.

As for I, II, and III... well it was absolutely awful, I was hoping it would be better 2nd time round, but it wasn`t. A small child could`ve done better. terrible characters, terrible story, wooden acting (probably cos the actors had no real direction, since they`re pretty well known good actors). I found it very hard to watch. The soldier robots were idiotic (who would build such things?) and that jar jar binks was just the vinegar on the rubbish cake.

Metaclorins is the force? Yea, that`s blown that mystery then. Anakin was just `there` from nowhere. And how the heck does some kid make super race speeders and complex robots and while being a slave? Too soft, too nice.

In comparison, II and III were much better, though it took a long time to see Anakin finally lose the plot. The Clones battle scenes in II were great at the end imho.

But I, II and III do it for me and I`m still not sure what formula he used that can make a guy actually feel sympathy towards stupid metal robots (c3p0 and R2D2). maybe it`s because in IV, V and VI everyone treats the robots like - robots! They don`t pretend to treat them like human beings. They get told to shut up, get switched off or ignored.

Bewolf
02-11-2008, 04:28 AM
I is an abolute no go. A pure insult to any Star Wars fan. Bad characters, bad story, wtf Gungans? II and III were better indeed, though some elements spoiled it just as well. A US 50ies Diner on Coruscant? Completly crushed the mood of having an alien world in another Galaxy there.

What I gotta say though, they had some fantastic character designs in the sequels. Grivious and Dooku were absolutely great ideas, and so was Fett...but like Darth Maul, killed way too early.

On the other hand, Christian Haden was probably the worst actor ever to play the role of Anakin.
What a whiner. Now I have to wonder if Darth Vader cries himself to sleep.

That does not change the fact that II and III visually were up there with best ever created.
Especially the space battle scene in the beginning of III....woha. The universe still is fantastic and so fully loaded up with potential it's a shame not more movies are made. Call it heresy, but I'd like to see parts IV to VI updated to the same visual standarts, and if only to have a real feel of continueity.

You'll sure be exitied to hear that a life action series is in production wich is placed between Episode III and IV.

Yeah I am aware of that, and indeed I place a lot of hope into that. Lucas way of storytelling has to go. The universe is too cool to waste it like that. Luckily they seek writers from the likes of the New Battlestar Galactica, Firefly and so on, so there is indeed some promise.

I agree that episode V was the best, but I have to give credit to VI for having the best space battle (battle of Endor) EVER in a film, 24 years old and still nothing beats it. When the tie fighters come in en masse I get goosebumps everytime. And no CGI gentlemen! Only animated models. Thank you.

The newer episodes have some good points, particularly General Grievous, but what is really lacking is a Han Solo type character. Everyone is just too buisiness like and serious and as we say here in Cyprus, cold bummed. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
