137: Go Wash a Droid


00:00:00   you so know thinking you greater than [TS]

00:00:01   the Gungans mesa like [TS]

00:00:10   the incontrovertible number 137 april [TS]

00:00:17   2013 it is a difficult time for the [TS]

00:00:21   incomparable podcast panelists they've [TS]

00:00:25   already spent an hour talking about star [TS]

00:00:27   wars episode 1 the phantom menace and [TS]

00:00:30   most importantly about taxation and [TS]

00:00:32   trade routes and yet there's so much [TS]

00:00:35   more to be done we've barely begun to [TS]

00:00:37   scratch the surface of the actual movie [TS]

00:00:38   beyond that opening part where there's a [TS]

00:00:41   droid and a bunch of lightsaber stuff [TS]

00:00:43   and so now we return you to those [TS]

00:00:45   thrilling days of 1999 with our [TS]

00:00:48   panelists Steve let's John siracusa [TS]

00:00:51   Monty actually Dan more'n serenity [TS]

00:00:54   Caldwell Greg moss and me your host [TS]

00:00:57   Jason Snell yeah well I'm just I'm [TS]

00:01:01   trying to blow through some stuff here I [TS]

00:01:03   we get to Nabu which is Italy I want to [TS]

00:01:06   ask about the whole Padme there's a [TS]

00:01:09   queen and a had had made in think she's [TS]

00:01:11   an elected queen she doesn't use the [TS]

00:01:13   Clark Kent classes you can have the [TS]

00:01:14   decency to use Clark Kent classes then [TS]

00:01:17   we have any way this weekend believe [TS]

00:01:18   they both Natalie Portman is there is [TS]

00:01:20   there is a tall split screen is there [TS]

00:01:22   also a replacement for natalie portman I [TS]

00:01:25   never understood it when I watched and I [TS]

00:01:26   still don't understand it [TS]

00:01:28   I still don't know when it's hers not [TS]

00:01:30   clear to me when she's the decoy and [TS]

00:01:31   when she's when and what is not want to [TS]

00:01:34   indict her sis different actresses she [TS]

00:01:36   is real up butter ones where Captain [TS]

00:01:38   office says your highness this is [TS]

00:01:41   getting very bad perhaps we should [TS]

00:01:43   consider doing you know things and then [TS]

00:01:47   the very next scene where she's seen [TS]

00:01:50   walking down the stairs and they're like [TS]

00:01:52   we're gonna force you to sign the treaty [TS]

00:01:54   that is not her she is now padmé and [TS]

00:01:57   keira knightley is pretending to Karen [TS]

00:02:00   nightly is pretending to be here okay so [TS]

00:02:01   apparently apparently they didn't need [TS]

00:02:03   the Clark Kent glasses because you guys [TS]

00:02:04   can't tell the difference i can't [TS]

00:02:06   believe this i was watching it on like [TS]

00:02:07   who could not who does not recognize now [TS]

00:02:09   the apartment slips apparently somebody [TS]

00:02:11   and they're worth a lot of people in [TS]

00:02:13   this pot John's paying a lot of [TS]

00:02:14   attention [TS]

00:02:16   yeah evenin anytime you can see Natalie [TS]

00:02:18   Portman's face it's clear like that's [TS]

00:02:20   basically the way it works to me is like [TS]

00:02:22   in that like without the makeup on like [TS]

00:02:23   if it's not really about the obvious in [TS]

00:02:25   her it's not double this just Karen [TS]

00:02:27   nightly playing frequently it's shaded [TS]

00:02:28   by the hood that she's got on so yeah [TS]

00:02:31   yeah but you cannot but she still she's [TS]

00:02:32   still right initially in my taxi her [TS]

00:02:34   mouth around pretty distinct on the like [TS]

00:02:36   is what we're saying she's got a pretty [TS]

00:02:38   good i'm just i'm really confined on [TS]

00:02:40   think she does i think you people are is [TS]

00:02:42   like a you know Queen racism like all [TS]

00:02:45   bucks look alike you know I put on the [TS]

00:02:46   makeup alternating Amidala obsessives [TS]

00:02:48   she's got a pretty good [TS]

00:02:50   keira knightley does bear a very strong [TS]

00:02:51   resemblance is she does at least that [TS]

00:02:54   age [TS]

00:02:54   certainly you are you telling me of you [TS]

00:02:56   so I like the switcheroo at the end but [TS]

00:02:58   there are just many points in this movie [TS]

00:03:00   and when I don't really know is she was [TS]

00:03:02   she the handmaiden all along which is [TS]

00:03:05   just a little summer programs that have [TS]

00:03:07   bad fit anything like the interesting [TS]

00:03:09   thing so as a twelve-year-old when this [TS]

00:03:12   came out there were novelizations [TS]

00:03:15   there's a novelization of the book and [TS]

00:03:16   then there were also two Diaries each [TS]

00:03:19   from the point of view of one from the [TS]

00:03:20   point of view of anakin and one from the [TS]

00:03:22   point of view from other madala I could [TS]

00:03:24   can write ya his desire was crap but I [TS]

00:03:28   remember nobody can read in Star Wars [TS]

00:03:30   set [TS]

00:03:31   yeah dear diary it is very hard to be [TS]

00:03:34   the queen [TS]

00:03:36   we are not amused had we dear diary [TS]

00:03:40   today I met an angel de la madolla book [TS]

00:03:43   actually has a fairly straight timeline [TS]

00:03:47   and everything makes sense and [TS]

00:03:49   apparently they should have used that [TS]

00:03:52   for the script and not actually the [TS]

00:03:54   actual script because the actual script [TS]

00:03:57   it doesn't make any sense when she's [TS]

00:03:59   switching why she's switching and the [TS]

00:04:01   only reason why they have that in the [TS]

00:04:02   movie at all is because so they could [TS]

00:04:04   pull that switcheroo literary and which [TS]

00:04:06   is a nice little thing they don't even [TS]

00:04:07   emphasize a nice little things not it's [TS]

00:04:10   like either completely ever replace that [TS]

00:04:13   with something else and just saved us a [TS]

00:04:14   lot of confusion it sets up a really [TS]

00:04:16   weird moment when you realize that Keira [TS]

00:04:18   Knightley as the person who's just there [TS]

00:04:20   to die in her Queens place just ordered [TS]

00:04:23   Queen Amidala to go wash a droid [TS]

00:04:26   yeah totally got it like that there's [TS]

00:04:28   the thing is like it there's there's so [TS]

00:04:30   much stuff that is so blatant on the [TS]

00:04:33   rewatching and yes I understand you [TS]

00:04:34   already know what's gonna happen you [TS]

00:04:36   already know there's a decoy but at the [TS]

00:04:37   same time there's parts where she's like [TS]

00:04:39   talking to the handmade like it's really [TS]

00:04:40   dangerous for all of us like you got it [TS]

00:04:45   like it's just it's yeah it's they beat [TS]

00:04:47   you over the head with it and and like [TS]

00:04:49   you're saying it doesn't it doesn't [TS]

00:04:50   really make any sense in like who [TS]

00:04:52   today my vote for this person that she [TS]

00:04:54   have executive powers like I'm worried [TS]

00:04:55   about the product parliamentary [TS]

00:04:57   procedures here she's talking to the [TS]

00:04:58   Prime Minister and and natalie portman [TS]

00:05:00   is the handmaiden and I keep looking to [TS]

00:05:03   see if there's gonna be like a little [TS]

00:05:04   like glance and it's like to hit that [TS]

00:05:07   her decoys making decisions executive [TS]

00:05:09   decisions like one of many coins just [TS]

00:05:11   like I want to put one of my hands to [TS]

00:05:12   death like what anyone stop her look [TS]

00:05:14   over the real queen like get a nod or [TS]

00:05:17   something [TS]

00:05:17   hey to just be like oh let's do that and [TS]

00:05:19   when she even have decoys [TS]

00:05:21   she's an elected official because these [TS]

00:05:23   people like to elect fourteen-year-old [TS]

00:05:25   girls to be their leader do they always [TS]

00:05:27   will have to find the six people willing [TS]

00:05:29   to die for her [TS]

00:05:30   it's like it's like the Kevin Cline [TS]

00:05:32   movie there's a lotta basically and they [TS]

00:05:33   generally travel on the same transport [TS]

00:05:37   so if they got shot down they were both [TS]

00:05:39   guys at a certain point it became like [TS]

00:05:41   she was being a kind of a jerk to [TS]

00:05:42   constantly have a decoy like when they [TS]

00:05:43   went to the Gungans psyches can you go [TS]

00:05:45   into any situation where you don't put [TS]

00:05:47   the like lets are we going somewhere [TS]

00:05:48   let's use a decoy because i think i [TS]

00:05:50   might be killed it's just a constant [TS]

00:05:51   like you can't go to the grocery store [TS]

00:05:52   it's like art wall go to the grocery [TS]

00:05:53   store but let's have a decoy car [TS]

00:05:55   deliveries during our walk behind like [TS]

00:05:56   everywhere you got it this is like non [TS]

00:05:59   heroic to constantly go everywhere and [TS]

00:06:01   have lead with your decoy because what [TS]

00:06:03   you're basically saying I do with my [TS]

00:06:04   decoys like a Saddam Hussein thing like [TS]

00:06:06   he had decoyed it's not it's not an [TS]

00:06:08   honorable the real queen is in a spider [TS]

00:06:10   hole somewhere if you knew she was gonna [TS]

00:06:12   be responsible for the next two movies [TS]

00:06:14   you want to kill her too but i gotta go [TS]

00:06:16   with whoever it was it like it was it [TS]

00:06:18   stever montior great who said the making [TS]

00:06:21   the the Queen wash the droid that just [TS]

00:06:24   that just makes no sense to make knows [TS]

00:06:27   that she's just like really getting off [TS]

00:06:28   on this like I'd like it to be queen now [TS]

00:06:30   you go watch a droid like me again she [TS]

00:06:33   could have her thrown out the airlock [TS]

00:06:34   and then where will we be washed droid [TS]

00:06:36   is the best euphemism I've heard [TS]

00:06:38   go wash it right the confusion also [TS]

00:06:41   ruins what what could have actually been [TS]

00:06:42   a pretty good moment which is where [TS]

00:06:44   Anakin goes to say goodbye to to Padme [TS]

00:06:46   and she responds the queen who I assume [TS]

00:06:49   at that point as Padme says I'm sure hot [TS]

00:06:52   goes with you right [TS]

00:06:55   it's it's clear i'm thinking about it [TS]

00:06:57   that yeah that's probably Padme that's [TS]

00:06:58   that's actually the Queen at that point [TS]

00:07:00   I still can't believe you people can't [TS]

00:07:01   tell the difference to actors and not at [TS]

00:07:03   all my machine full head dress in her [TS]

00:07:05   dressing room in that soon you can take [TS]

00:07:07   that goes address the Senate yeah she [TS]

00:07:10   just got back from a meeting changes [TS]

00:07:11   clothes a lot for somebody with such a [TS]

00:07:13   complicated wardrobe [TS]

00:07:15   yes and apparently she has a big [TS]

00:07:17   wardrobe on that tiny little ship yes [TS]

00:07:19   but they do consider selling her [TS]

00:07:21   wardrobe is to pay for the hyperdrive so [TS]

00:07:23   it tells you what kind of clothes she's [TS]

00:07:24   cut John's lip recognition is so strong [TS]

00:07:26   that if he were an enemy agent he would [TS]

00:07:29   know maybe able to assassinate me if we [TS]

00:07:31   just as seriously you start school [TS]

00:07:33   pictures of those actresses headshots [TS]

00:07:34   Hare Hare hidden or pulled back and you [TS]

00:07:36   saw this white base with distracting red [TS]

00:07:39   makeup [TS]

00:07:39   yeah sadly you can't make your Italian [TS]

00:07:41   different super-famous how could you not [TS]

00:07:43   know what they look like [TS]

00:07:45   I mean because i had weird because it's [TS]

00:07:47   just so weird with the white face and [TS]

00:07:49   the funny red things a little more cells [TS]

00:07:51   are so into the you're gonna hear metal [TS]

00:07:53   them apart i think so i think we're [TS]

00:07:54   missing the big point which is that the [TS]

00:07:56   Jedi who can apparently like real people [TS]

00:07:58   talk about anything that's how it got [TS]

00:08:01   good time that is a ship or a or a [TS]

00:08:04   lightsaber on an iPad that's on the [TS]

00:08:06   other side room but he can't tell if its [TS]

00:08:08   Keira Knightley yeah people that that's [TS]

00:08:10   the same test Bill Murray using [TS]

00:08:11   Ghostbusters and these are generally use [TS]

00:08:15   mind control at a moment's notice just [TS]

00:08:17   to get out of mildly annoying [TS]

00:08:19   conversation yes so okay I i wanna i [TS]

00:08:22   wanna move ahead to the podrace now [TS]

00:08:24   because we do but wait there's more [TS]

00:08:26   and and and also point out speaking of [TS]

00:08:28   stupid things the Jedi do i was struck [TS]

00:08:31   really Jedi this is the best you've got [TS]

00:08:33   is why don't we enter a race and bet our [TS]

00:08:38   entire spaceship and on this kid that's [TS]

00:08:42   the best idea you have gone strategic [TS]

00:08:44   genius [TS]

00:08:45   well the best part in the discussions of [TS]

00:08:47   that decision of like the script has to [TS]

00:08:50   fence in this decision to [TS]

00:08:51   make it would be the decision so it's [TS]

00:08:54   like well do you know any people are [TS]

00:08:56   friendly Federation open on this planet [TS]

00:08:57   up I guess you're right this is it like [TS]

00:08:59   they have this discussion where it [TS]

00:09:01   several alternatives are offered and [TS]

00:09:03   shut down by this random slave woman who [TS]

00:09:04   you just met and he's like well but that [TS]

00:09:06   you know there it is it's perfectly [TS]

00:09:08   logical i don't have money can't get [TS]

00:09:09   money even though i'm a jedi there's no [TS]

00:09:12   one else here is friendly so this kid [TS]

00:09:14   think that's it that's the only choice [TS]

00:09:15   ya mind control water the only creature [TS]

00:09:17   we've ever met that can't have is that [TS]

00:09:19   is you and Jedi powers second job is all [TS]

00:09:22   java technically and water tells him [TS]

00:09:24   that that nobody else on Tatooine is [TS]

00:09:26   likely to have a replacement for their [TS]

00:09:28   leaking hyperdrive but it's gonna take [TS]

00:09:30   that at face value ok he's probably tell [TS]

00:09:33   me the truth [TS]

00:09:33   this guy's not shifty at all don't look [TS]

00:09:36   on ebay you wouldn't be able to go ahead [TS]

00:09:38   hey don't don't walk across to the other [TS]

00:09:42   15 parts dealers and Tatooine know he [TS]

00:09:46   could at least use his Jedi powers on [TS]

00:09:48   someone else to steal their money and [TS]

00:09:50   then give it to Pato I feel like this [TS]

00:09:52   would have would have worked a little [TS]

00:09:53   bit better if the diversion to Tatooine [TS]

00:09:56   had been more dramatic like they were [TS]

00:09:57   going to crash and they had to go to [TS]

00:09:58   Tatooine and that things were kinda [TS]

00:10:00   busted up and hyperdrive is leaking and [TS]

00:10:02   something weird a secret but it happens [TS]

00:10:05   almost as an aside like oh the [TS]

00:10:07   hyperdrive has a leak so we have to go [TS]

00:10:08   to Tatooine negative will go this way [TS]

00:10:10   there's a labor gas station and get a [TS]

00:10:12   pet dog either watch the ship it was it [TS]

00:10:14   was leaking medic lorians there in short [TS]

00:10:16   supply man there's no drama in that and [TS]

00:10:18   so when they get there they don't seem [TS]

00:10:21   that desperate so that that that struck [TS]

00:10:23   me as as a problem and then we so you [TS]

00:10:26   know and Yankees virgin birth and middle [TS]

00:10:28   chlorines all that but then but then [TS]

00:10:29   there's this podrace we're very much [TS]

00:10:32   risk as the midi-chlorians before after [TS]

00:10:34   that because i have one point on the [TS]

00:10:35   medical or after ok that apartment [TS]

00:10:37   apartment he's a he's talking to is a [TS]

00:10:39   lady's razor and and I realize that's [TS]

00:10:43   after that he where he's got a device [TS]

00:10:45   powerful enough to take a blood sample [TS]

00:10:47   but not to end right so that was one of [TS]

00:10:49   those my points wanna get in this one he [TS]

00:10:50   radios the slide over the Internet [TS]

00:10:54   right now you at least you didn't send [TS]

00:10:55   analysis of the blood because it becomes [TS]

00:10:57   sent an analysis of the blood of the [TS]

00:10:59   innocent we have analysis right there he [TS]

00:11:01   sent the blood over the Internet to the [TS]

00:11:02   other computer that then analyzed the [TS]

00:11:05   blood and yells him to the Medical [TS]

00:11:06   you're missing the point [TS]

00:11:07   it's Monty is totally right he's doing [TS]

00:11:09   it just to show up obi-wan and how ya [TS]

00:11:12   powerful mr. lb1 look what I found [TS]

00:11:15   yeah well what's your middle area and [TS]

00:11:18   can do you wanna do you think Jedi sit [TS]

00:11:20   around the locker room comparing [TS]

00:11:21   midi-chlorian counts each and every one [TS]

00:11:24   there's the one Jedi who hides in the [TS]

00:11:26   corner the locker room to put a short [TS]

00:11:28   son i could do this blood analysis [TS]

00:11:30   myself but you to get was already [TS]

00:11:32   bleeding and then he poked him anyway to [TS]

00:11:33   get the last I didn't need the blood was [TS]

00:11:35   already clearly on the surface the hell [TS]

00:11:36   yeah yeah I want to do with me actually [TS]

00:11:38   checked his blood for infections not [TS]

00:11:40   what the Jedi lying all the time doesn't [TS]

00:11:44   have any effect midi-chlorians are dad [TS]

00:11:46   wanted to take your blood for infections [TS]

00:11:47   like the force of Darth Maul shows up at [TS]

00:11:50   this point to and I wanted to say i [TS]

00:11:52   kinda like Darth Maul he sort of [TS]

00:11:53   interesting increased because he has no [TS]

00:11:55   lines three scenes yes all three lines [TS]

00:11:57   oh my he's focusing as a very [TS]

00:12:00   emasculating ride though once he gets [TS]

00:12:01   out on Tatooine he verizon this badass [TS]

00:12:03   ship and he climbs on this little [TS]

00:12:05   motorcycle thing which is totally not [TS]

00:12:07   doing anything for him and the first [TS]

00:12:08   thing he does is drive over a cliff [TS]

00:12:09   that's kind of cool yet the third way he [TS]

00:12:11   drives it over the cliff and I just [TS]

00:12:12   thought like wow that was the end of [TS]

00:12:13   that guy scary but not very smart [TS]

00:12:16   it sounds for all the world like cydia [TS]

00:12:18   says his apprentices bars [TS]

00:12:20   excuse me party on Wayne Sidious I mean [TS]

00:12:25   but also i like the fact that he [TS]

00:12:26   introduces him to the to the whatever [TS]

00:12:29   the healthy the Trade Federation guys [TS]

00:12:30   and he has to like appear in his [TS]

00:12:32   holographic form like hey how's it going [TS]

00:12:35   what is that like what why why even [TS]

00:12:38   Palpatine has to do exposition that's a [TS]

00:12:40   healthy master Padawan relationship [TS]

00:12:42   come-come step into the webcam view but [TS]

00:12:45   as any trying to keep this whole thing [TS]

00:12:46   like secret hunting isn't the whole [TS]

00:12:49   point like know what secrets it guys [TS]

00:12:51   were scary like we should definitely [TS]

00:12:52   reveal his existence to way more people [TS]

00:12:54   especially these obvious and competence [TS]

00:12:57   training I don't understand anything [TS]

00:12:59   they say it'll be fun [TS]

00:13:01   yes that's a good point anyway I feel [TS]

00:13:03   bad for dark ball because he shows up [TS]

00:13:05   and say he's kinda interesting that we [TS]

00:13:06   don't see many [TS]

00:13:07   apparently he spends the entire plot of [TS]

00:13:10   the podrace wandering around the desert [TS]

00:13:12   looking for nothing that you seen this [TS]

00:13:14   boy the problem the probe droids you're [TS]

00:13:17   looking for [TS]

00:13:17   he doesn't do anything he sends his [TS]

00:13:18   little he sends his balls out to do the [TS]

00:13:20   work that's true that's true he has his [TS]

00:13:23   little less sensor balls that go out and [TS]

00:13:25   and he said he kicks back and watches TV [TS]

00:13:27   I'd like that is a split screen where [TS]

00:13:29   Darth Maul's watching TV in his [TS]

00:13:30   spaceship while obi-wan is watching TV [TS]

00:13:32   and their spaceship while the rest of [TS]

00:13:34   the plot goes on i would like to see [TS]

00:13:36   that mr. dr. like playing video games [TS]

00:13:39   against each other was like yeah it's [TS]

00:13:40   like pong know they're like to call of [TS]

00:13:42   duty [TS]

00:13:43   yeah well they're they're watching [TS]

00:13:44   wayne's world obviously part of this the [TS]

00:13:46   star wars universe is based on wayne's [TS]

00:13:49   world and full house party on a full [TS]

00:13:51   house and the end of the bigger basket [TS]

00:13:53   so we've pretty much established the [TS]

00:13:55   cannon brilliant i have a question about [TS]

00:13:58   the Padres where kind of a warning shots [TS]

00:14:01   you're the only one huh [TS]

00:14:02   ok it's the reason they had to do the [TS]

00:14:04   podraces because gambling on the podrace [TS]

00:14:06   is what the entire economy is based on [TS]

00:14:08   CS and I'll Joe and moisture football [TS]

00:14:11   always wins and practically everybody [TS]

00:14:13   always dies and the potty racers blow up [TS]

00:14:16   every race [TS]

00:14:17   yes if the gambling seems like it would [TS]

00:14:19   be extremely one-sided and I don't I [TS]

00:14:22   don't see why you would have a problem [TS]

00:14:23   with it if not an airtight system really [TS]

00:14:25   what what's your question yes what is [TS]

00:14:29   what is the quest [TS]

00:14:30   whoo that's the second time I've been [TS]

00:14:33   here three days so but when every time [TS]

00:14:36   he's also the only survivor [TS]

00:14:37   I would've been on this human well [TS]

00:14:38   there's a lot of media to crash-land [TS]

00:14:40   when their hyperdrive starts leaking [TS]

00:14:41   always liked the lost island it's got [TS]

00:14:44   some kind of tractor on transfer may [TS]

00:14:46   also to actually answer your question [TS]

00:14:49   literally I it maybe people betting on [TS]

00:14:51   the second and third-place winners are [TS]

00:14:53   betting who's going to crap place and [TS]

00:14:55   show her i'll take that other bets [TS]

00:14:57   Sebulba and the guy with the student [TS]

00:15:00   roads that seems pretty sophisticated [TS]

00:15:01   for Tatooine gets that justifies an [TS]

00:15:04   economy based on racing all these things [TS]

00:15:06   I'm sure going streaks sebald so Bob [TS]

00:15:08   always wins you know for the three [TS]

00:15:10   months and then he dies in the next guy [TS]

00:15:12   who reads comes up yeah maybe i'm gonna [TS]

00:15:14   get the guy with the long neck with [TS]

00:15:16   Sebulba yo that 400 to win 450 but it [TS]

00:15:19   would hear i have to have to give it [TS]

00:15:21   some [TS]

00:15:21   credit to the padres because the pod [TS]

00:15:23   race is a race it's a coherent thing [TS]

00:15:26   that happens it's there's some tension [TS]

00:15:28   about who's in first or second-place not [TS]

00:15:31   that we think they're going to lose but [TS]

00:15:32   at least at least it's it's it's a [TS]

00:15:34   sensible story I understand how race [TS]

00:15:36   works understand people going fast I [TS]

00:15:38   understand laps understand wanting to [TS]

00:15:39   win and that's something that can't be [TS]

00:15:41   said for almost the entirety of this [TS]

00:15:43   movie right none of it makes any sense [TS]

00:15:44   in any rational way and you have any [TS]

00:15:46   connection to whatsoever at least racing [TS]

00:15:48   is something that could possibly finally [TS]

00:15:50   connect with normal people o racing I [TS]

00:15:52   know racing so something but let me try [TS]

00:15:54   let me throw out a question here just [TS]

00:15:56   because I'm I'm curious why do you strap [TS]

00:15:58   the engines to the front like so that [TS]

00:16:01   you're behind the exhaust the whole time [TS]

00:16:02   because they're going ragging they're [TS]

00:16:04   off to the side that you're sitting in [TS]

00:16:05   so you can reference manager vendor or [TS]

00:16:07   reason yeah yeah I get that but they [TS]

00:16:10   obviously haven't seen been her in this [TS]

00:16:12   universe if so my question did Wales [TS]

00:16:14   world in full house why not been why not [TS]

00:16:16   just put them on the back of the pod [TS]

00:16:19   where makes perfect sense because then [TS]

00:16:21   you're upfront and you're going to be [TS]

00:16:23   hitting all those things that your giant [TS]

00:16:24   engines hit it doesn't matter you die [TS]

00:16:26   either way we've seen this unless you're [TS]

00:16:29   Sebulba in which case you just slide to [TS]

00:16:31   a halt and say poo do it was only going [TS]

00:16:33   400 miles an hour that's like asking why [TS]

00:16:36   wear a helmet if you hit something at [TS]

00:16:38   900 miles per hour [TS]

00:16:39   it's just slightly safe here the things [TS]

00:16:41   I noticed about the podrace Greg Proops [TS]

00:16:43   is in it as a five-day Brock saying [TS]

00:16:46   things that are supposed to be funny but [TS]

00:16:47   aren't really funny [TS]

00:16:48   it looks great it sounds great it is [TS]

00:16:51   wait [TS]

00:16:52   it is way too long and the line that [TS]

00:16:54   made me laugh out loud this time is [TS]

00:16:56   Threepio says he has to complete two [TS]

00:16:59   more circuits settings dear is android [TS]

00:17:02   right yeah but no but I i love it [TS]

00:17:04   because he's actually commenting but [TS]

00:17:06   that's way that's it's 20 dear we're [TS]

00:17:07   going to be here along this because [TS]

00:17:09   there's 22 more lab I don't find that [TS]

00:17:12   the pod racing scene in terminal because [TS]

00:17:14   again it has no dialogue so I'm [TS]

00:17:16   blessedly spared that and it is a Racine [TS]

00:17:18   not listening to Greg Proops huh [TS]

00:17:20   hey I just don't care I don't but it's [TS]

00:17:22   like watching somebody else play a video [TS]

00:17:24   game or were literally watching the [TS]

00:17:26   movie go around in circles at least [TS]

00:17:29   moving that the reason the podrace seems [TS]

00:17:32   long is because this is the first time [TS]

00:17:34   in the course of the film and what are [TS]

00:17:35   we had like here 40 minutes where we [TS]

00:17:38   spent more than 30 seconds on any given [TS]

00:17:40   situation we've encountered always in [TS]

00:17:43   battle droids droidekas boss noss the [TS]

00:17:46   gigantic fish and all these are just [TS]

00:17:47   setup and dispatch within like two [TS]

00:17:49   seconds and without the tiniest little [TS]

00:17:51   bit of tension and understand their [TS]

00:17:53   incoherent and inconsequential least we [TS]

00:17:55   know there's something on the line here [TS]

00:17:56   something stupid but something on the [TS]

00:17:57   line right it's a race and you know it's [TS]

00:17:59   it's finally like something that you put [TS]

00:18:02   together and I think the racing itself [TS]

00:18:04   is reasonably coherent and that you [TS]

00:18:06   could tell what's going on in the race [TS]

00:18:08   you can tell who is in what position yes [TS]

00:18:11   what what each person is in each [TS]

00:18:12   situation which like and the thing was [TS]

00:18:14   just baseline competence of the shooting [TS]

00:18:16   anything about anything and finally you [TS]

00:18:18   have one here you do have the reaction [TS]

00:18:20   shots of the crowd with your execrable [TS]

00:18:21   and should just like just don't look at [TS]

00:18:23   those at all like just close your eyes [TS]

00:18:25   and wait till they get back to the [TS]

00:18:26   racers there they're using iPads to [TS]

00:18:27   watch the yeah near them [TS]

00:18:29   that's my favorite part of the race [TS]

00:18:31   scene is that Anakin's mother doesn't [TS]

00:18:34   want to watch you know she keeps turning [TS]

00:18:35   her face away but they make her hold the [TS]

00:18:37   bike [TS]

00:18:38   yeah I I don't you get his iPads with [TS]

00:18:40   the Viking horn it's just a really [TS]

00:18:44   excellent saving go watch this $99 why [TS]

00:18:47   do you go in to watch it at the stadium [TS]

00:18:49   when it's only like they're only in [TS]

00:18:51   front of you for 30 seconds yeah but [TS]

00:18:53   people do that a different for car races [TS]

00:18:56   not only good for baseball games never [TS]

00:18:58   going to baseball games on the kid I see [TS]

00:18:59   it was a little miniature TV up in the [TS]

00:19:01   cheap seats with make it but where the [TS]

00:19:02   where the pod racing is watching people [TS]

00:19:04   play with somebody play a videogame [TS]

00:19:06   everything up till that point has been [TS]

00:19:08   watching somebody to a speedrun who [TS]

00:19:10   already knows where everything is you [TS]

00:19:12   know and and just he has the walkthrough [TS]

00:19:15   by his side and he just blast through [TS]

00:19:16   everything without there being any [TS]

00:19:18   concern whatsoever and all the sudden we [TS]

00:19:20   have a situation where there's at some [TS]

00:19:22   actual tension there's a chance the kid [TS]

00:19:23   might lose all we know he's not going to [TS]

00:19:25   stand the sound sound design i could [TS]

00:19:27   change that sounds really good i like [TS]

00:19:28   the the pod racer design even though it [TS]

00:19:30   makes no sense just because it looks [TS]

00:19:31   kind of interesting and I think the this [TS]

00:19:33   is one area where the effects actually [TS]

00:19:35   do hold up with is almost nothing real [TS]

00:19:36   in this entire thing and it looks fine [TS]

00:19:38   and I think the one thing they blow [TS]

00:19:40   ironically is the music which is it has [TS]

00:19:42   a reused q it's just really weird time [TS]

00:19:45   that distracting every time is that [TS]

00:19:46   there's a the queue is really [TS]

00:19:47   used from when they escaped Naboo on the [TS]

00:19:49   spaceship exact same music yeah that's [TS]

00:19:51   weird because the rest of the movie john [TS]

00:19:53   williams is killing it like John [TS]

00:19:55   Williams determined that it's all super [TS]

00:19:57   exciting whatever nonsense is happening [TS]

00:19:59   on screen yeah i agree i think the one [TS]

00:20:01   of the few bright spots of the Phantom [TS]

00:20:03   Menace is the score is actually pretty [TS]

00:20:04   damn good [TS]

00:20:05   yes butBut how it's used in the movie is [TS]

00:20:07   not going to almost be better if it [TS]

00:20:08   wasn't so good though because it yet you [TS]

00:20:11   reflect the fact that the movie is so [TS]

00:20:12   dismal now if you just mute if you could [TS]

00:20:14   just meet the dialogue [TS]

00:20:16   well no but i think the score is not [TS]

00:20:17   used well in the movie like we want [TS]

00:20:19   everyone to have the soundtrack and [TS]

00:20:21   listen to the soundtrack the soundtrack [TS]

00:20:22   is so much other than it's come to this [TS]

00:20:24   cut to ribbons because i had a i bought [TS]

00:20:26   the when the movie came out i bought the [TS]

00:20:28   soundtrack and to get started because I [TS]

00:20:29   spoil the plot for my spoiled yes [TS]

00:20:31   thursday night yeah I got your roll [TS]

00:20:34   a-trak I looked at it I happened to pick [TS]

00:20:36   it up in the store like three days [TS]

00:20:37   before i went to the movie and I was [TS]

00:20:38   really pissed off but the fact is that [TS]

00:20:41   that cut of the original soundtrack is [TS]

00:20:43   really terrible i mean and then later on [TS]

00:20:45   they finally released a two disc version [TS]

00:20:46   which is actually very good but it's I [TS]

00:20:49   agree that it's misused in a lot of [TS]

00:20:52   places and its kind of cut up to ribbons [TS]

00:20:54   and it doesn't really it's weird that it [TS]

00:20:56   doesn't like they couldn't you know come [TS]

00:20:58   up with a new q4 that seem like they [TS]

00:21:00   couldn't bring down with his back for a [TS]

00:21:02   couple hours ever right up something [TS]

00:21:03   like I don't know it's it's very it's [TS]

00:21:05   the one of the weak points in that in [TS]

00:21:07   that sequence the other weak point for [TS]

00:21:09   me being right after Anakin wins watch [TS]

00:21:12   his friends try to highlight and that is [TS]

00:21:14   that is why it's all that awesome and [TS]

00:21:16   then think about that I chose nice i was [TS]

00:21:19   it i paused it to show this to my wife [TS]

00:21:21   because I can't believe she hadn't seen [TS]

00:21:22   mike has that seems like what are you [TS]

00:21:23   talking about like you don't you don't [TS]

00:21:24   know that scene that is the like the [TS]

00:21:27   thing is that's the take they use I [TS]

00:21:28   think about that I just shake my head is [TS]

00:21:30   one was saying like they must have been [TS]

00:21:32   fed bad line readings i was thinking the [TS]

00:21:34   heated everything in one take and like [TS]

00:21:36   that's it that's the one we're using [TS]

00:21:37   like that's the one you're using that's [TS]

00:21:39   the one the guy in the mask couldn't see [TS]

00:21:40   the kid and it's like three abortive [TS]

00:21:42   attempts to high-five it's just the most [TS]

00:21:44   awkward it's the most awkward thing I've [TS]

00:21:46   ever seen on film and that's the take [TS]

00:21:47   that you like it you could cut out of [TS]

00:21:49   the movie there's no reason to be like [TS]

00:21:50   nope that's the take we got it in one [TS]

00:21:52   next exit on microcosm of the entire [TS]

00:21:55   film the same thing happens on the Trade [TS]

00:21:57   Federation [TS]

00:21:58   at on the bridge there's a navigator [TS]

00:22:00   down in the lower corner of the screen [TS]

00:22:02   who can't find the buttons that are [TS]

00:22:03   supposed to be pushing because they have [TS]

00:22:04   a mask on and there's so much attention [TS]

00:22:07   paid to you know all of the cgi stuff [TS]

00:22:10   all of the tiny little details that go [TS]

00:22:11   into that but nobody's actually watching [TS]

00:22:13   with the human beings on the green [TS]

00:22:14   screen are doing they're just fumbling [TS]

00:22:17   around bumping into things that we think [TS]

00:22:19   one of those kids was George Lucas's [TS]

00:22:21   daughter she was in the same when [TS]

00:22:23   looking at the Padres area in fact i [TS]

00:22:25   think two of them are because I think [TS]

00:22:27   they're i looked up in there were two [TS]

00:22:28   people in java and implicit behind job [TS]

00:22:31   there's one of his daughters and I [TS]

00:22:33   believe in that and the other daughter [TS]

00:22:34   is definitely when they're looking at [TS]

00:22:35   his pod racer and he just got it set up [TS]

00:22:37   and she's in the back she has a line she [TS]

00:22:38   has a align that she delivers as badly [TS]

00:22:40   as everyone else delivered online that's [TS]

00:22:42   so wizard well least he didn't have [TS]

00:22:44   favoritism the little kids are just bad [TS]

00:22:46   news period i mean it's bad enough [TS]

00:22:47   you've got Jake Lloyd stinking the place [TS]

00:22:49   up but then you throw 45 others in there [TS]

00:22:52   you got one kid saying this is this is [TS]

00:22:54   so wizard a nice 1i hell is that kid has [TS]

00:22:57   the best line rings in the movies [TS]

00:22:58   besides Palpatine what we also learn [TS]

00:23:02   about the pod racing is that Anakin's [TS]

00:23:03   pot is way faster than any other pod [TS]

00:23:05   because he starts way behind is like 20 [TS]

00:23:07   account of the time is like 25 seconds [TS]

00:23:08   behind so it had better be fast at seven [TS]

00:23:11   catches up and the only way that that [TS]

00:23:12   it's even close after he catches up is [TS]

00:23:15   is the various sorts of sabotage that [TS]

00:23:17   happened to him which are physical acts [TS]

00:23:20   of sabotage all of which he fixes by [TS]

00:23:22   flipping switch and it was really smart [TS]

00:23:24   of him to build that little door in his [TS]

00:23:25   pod that can close over the place [TS]

00:23:26   exactly where Sebulba just happened to [TS]

00:23:28   sabotage spot [TS]

00:23:29   yeah well that is good to see into the [TS]

00:23:31   future little bits the fastest hunk of [TS]

00:23:33   junk in the galaxy [TS]

00:23:35   he's also Han Solo's dad it's really you [TS]

00:23:39   know Anna can use the Force to pull the [TS]

00:23:40   broken cable back to him to magnet and [TS]

00:23:43   the mac safe they use this max it for [TS]

00:23:45   other engines and moderate how they were [TS]

00:23:46   easily yet with mannequins entire [TS]

00:23:49   excellent piloting skills are just [TS]

00:23:50   flipping switches up and down also later [TS]

00:23:52   during the space battle guided by the [TS]

00:23:54   force he did not crash into things which [TS]

00:23:57   was which was a field that's that's how [TS]

00:23:58   good of a tinker is he's able to design [TS]

00:24:00   something that only requires flip [TS]

00:24:02   switching it as he grows up he learns to [TS]

00:24:04   bang on the dash [TS]

00:24:05   podracing is a like Mario cards a lot of [TS]

00:24:09   rubber banding so he was bound to get [TS]

00:24:11   the blue shell me like the Jedi phones i [TS]

00:24:13   mean all you do is whack the console [TS]

00:24:16   hey it's a the force be with you [TS]

00:24:20   not I'm realizing now that even though [TS]

00:24:22   we're not even close to halfway through [TS]

00:24:24   the movie my notes run out rapidly [TS]

00:24:26   because I think I i lost the will to [TS]

00:24:28   live were beaten down I feel the same [TS]

00:24:30   way it was after the Padres just go [TS]

00:24:32   downhill after a while mine too i took [TS]

00:24:34   my first break after the Padres and I [TS]

00:24:35   didn't want to go back I have two [TS]

00:24:37   sentences written down after the podrace [TS]

00:24:40   so um I i wanted to talk about the [TS]

00:24:42   scenes in the Galactic Galactic Senate [TS]

00:24:45   which are death because they're really [TS]

00:24:47   boring [TS]

00:24:48   we already mentioned why does the Trade [TS]

00:24:50   Federation even get a seat in the Senate [TS]

00:24:51   I guess that's the corruption it's that [TS]

00:24:53   corrupt but my note is oh good Robert's [TS]

00:24:56   Rules of Order in space on floating [TS]

00:24:59   platforms [TS]

00:25:00   I recognize the chair and there's a [TS]

00:25:02   committee and and you know again I've [TS]

00:25:06   got that question about pot a related [TS]

00:25:08   her opinions when she's not dressed up [TS]

00:25:10   as the Queen which is very confusing [TS]

00:25:11   cadivi as I think rent pointed out when [TS]

00:25:14   we're watching it [TS]

00:25:15   how does she get to motion for a [TS]

00:25:17   no-confidence vote when she's not in the [TS]

00:25:20   Senate right my feeling there is that is [TS]

00:25:22   that she's as the ruler she can step in [TS]

00:25:25   for the for her her senator yeah but [TS]

00:25:29   governor like for Massachusetts let's [TS]

00:25:31   just say Massachusetts as a planet-wide [TS]

00:25:33   all Patrick can't you know vote will be [TS]

00:25:36   the House of Representatives and Senate [TS]

00:25:38   this is the Galactic Republic greens are [TS]

00:25:40   elected either but the problem with this [TS]

00:25:42   movie is that the political structure is [TS]

00:25:44   inconsistent haha oh so that's the meat [TS]

00:25:48   don't say their problems you should see [TS]

00:25:51   you should see the taxation code [TS]

00:25:53   speaking of acting uh i should mention [TS]

00:25:55   the Terence Stamp appears here too and [TS]

00:25:57   hey kneel before the lord he's a really [TS]

00:25:59   interesting actor who is completely [TS]

00:26:01   boring and and speaks in a flat voice [TS]

00:26:04   and there's nothing to do [TS]

00:26:06   well I will say and and I gave credit [TS]

00:26:08   and i will continue to give credit i [TS]

00:26:09   thinkI and mcdermott does as Palpatine [TS]

00:26:12   especially I think better is I think [TS]

00:26:14   he's better as Palpatine then he has is [TS]

00:26:16   as Darth Sidious [TS]

00:26:19   just game right like I think that's the [TS]

00:26:20   thing about him is that he's just going [TS]

00:26:21   for it like he's the one guy there's [TS]

00:26:23   like you know what I'm a professional [TS]

00:26:25   British actor i'm just going to kind of [TS]

00:26:26   roll with this well [TS]

00:26:27   also he know the emperor has been [TS]

00:26:29   defined as a character and let's let's [TS]

00:26:30   say we've been searching for a [TS]

00:26:32   protagonist in this movie Palpatine's [TS]

00:26:34   the protagonist he's the one who makes [TS]

00:26:36   everything happen [TS]

00:26:37   he's the title he's created the Phantom [TS]

00:26:40   Menace right is the only one who has a [TS]

00:26:42   brain it's funny that as much as these [TS]

00:26:44   movies ruin the big reveal at the end of [TS]

00:26:46   empire that the the original trilogy has [TS]

00:26:50   already ruined this movie's big reveal [TS]

00:26:53   yeah this movie deserves that means if [TS]

00:26:55   the fact that hideous and Palpatine are [TS]

00:26:57   the same is so transparent all you tell [TS]

00:27:00   the difference between those two but you [TS]

00:27:01   can tell now the apartment keira [TS]

00:27:03   knightley is that supposed to be a [TS]

00:27:05   surprise [TS]

00:27:06   yeah i mean that's the thing is I i [TS]

00:27:08   think if you go in not knowing that I [TS]

00:27:10   think you it might get by you excited [TS]

00:27:13   from the fact that for me at the very [TS]

00:27:14   end during the funeral [TS]

00:27:16   they're like well which one do we kill [TS]

00:27:17   the master the apprentice whoa panting [TS]

00:27:20   after the right you know I i know that [TS]

00:27:22   that seems so obvious and yet I i said [TS]

00:27:24   to Mike my kids [TS]

00:27:25   well you know why they're showing him [TS]

00:27:27   right there like know why is because [TS]

00:27:28   he's the Emperor the girl who just saw [TS]

00:27:30   yr even mace windu and Yoda telling each [TS]

00:27:33   other things they already know [TS]

00:27:34   exposition so they're telling the [TS]

00:27:36   audience they're reading their reading [TS]

00:27:38   things that should never be spoken by [TS]

00:27:40   human beings that they're not even right [TS]

00:27:42   are they all this stuff about there's [TS]

00:27:44   always exactly to that if there's always [TS]

00:27:46   exactly a have sit relax guys there's [TS]

00:27:49   not that many of the music Meister yeah [TS]

00:27:50   I like this got numbers i like to [TS]

00:27:53   pretend that maybe the Jedi Council is [TS]

00:27:54   actually just what the Avengers ends up [TS]

00:27:56   being in the future after nuclear is [TS]

00:27:57   recruited them all so do it is funny to [TS]

00:28:00   watch that movie now I think a nick fury [TS]

00:28:01   he's a he's a Jedi so we we missed [TS]

00:28:04   something here which is back we go back [TS]

00:28:05   to Nobu and there's a battle which I [TS]

00:28:07   actually think is actually I i enjoy the [TS]

00:28:09   grass field of the putting green the [TS]

00:28:11   battle of the putting green windows 95 [TS]

00:28:13   battle the Teletubbies battle whatever [TS]

00:28:15   it is the rolling grass hills battle GI [TS]

00:28:17   objects I'll i don't know like chillin [TS]

00:28:20   toys I had no interest in that battle [TS]

00:28:23   whatsoever i didn't care about either [TS]

00:28:24   side it was not interesting tactically [TS]

00:28:26   was not interesting visually was [TS]

00:28:27   ridiculous and stupid blue gum balls it [TS]

00:28:29   had gone ones that had George are owed [TS]

00:28:31   oh I I didn't mind that battle I i [TS]

00:28:34   actually had that battle was kind of [TS]

00:28:35   cool but and I like the dress I like [TS]

00:28:37   that they hit the droids come on like [TS]

00:28:39   racks and they are dispensed I was the [TS]

00:28:42   only good part of that battle was the [TS]

00:28:44   droids being unfolding from the little [TS]

00:28:45   things two seconds worth of the ball [TS]

00:28:47   that's clever ok now never show me this [TS]

00:28:49   again because i did the same thing you [TS]

00:28:51   didn't Jedi he wanted to have multiple [TS]

00:28:52   multiple battle lines going and he [TS]

00:28:54   wanted them to reach their there may be [TS]

00:28:56   there at the same point right I keep [TS]

00:28:58   that says that's his playbook multiple [TS]

00:29:00   lines of action at everything looks like [TS]

00:29:02   it's going as bad as it could possibly [TS]

00:29:04   go for all that once and i'll come out [TS]

00:29:06   of him and culminated in a climax with [TS]

00:29:07   the problem is no one cares about any of [TS]

00:29:09   these things and the only one that's [TS]

00:29:10   remotely cool as far as far as [TS]

00:29:12   lightsaber battle and it's not because [TS]

00:29:13   we care about the characters just [TS]

00:29:14   because it's cool lightsaber battle I [TS]

00:29:16   don't we skip all the way ahead to this [TS]

00:29:18   you're right Steve we did skip ahead [TS]

00:29:19   mostly because I passed I passed away at [TS]

00:29:21   some point in time points news but we [TS]

00:29:24   should talk about the Jedi Council a [TS]

00:29:25   little bit i want to back up to that [TS]

00:29:26   because i do have that in my notes the [TS]

00:29:29   blue guy with the neck [TS]

00:29:30   whoo-hoo stick talking behind so [TS]

00:29:33   distracting [TS]

00:29:34   I know things about that guy is a q-tip [TS]

00:29:36   I sense much fear in you [TS]

00:29:37   Yoda says I don't Yoda i have not seen [TS]

00:29:40   any emotion in this thing in in any and [TS]

00:29:42   all I was their fear I I sense nothing [TS]

00:29:45   but you should you be that's perfectly [TS]

00:29:47   content guys that's the reveal [TS]

00:29:50   oh that's the whole reason that Anakin [TS]

00:29:52   is so flat the entire time is so that [TS]

00:29:54   Yoda can point out that he knows there's [TS]

00:29:56   fear in him because he can see inside [TS]

00:29:58   his head even though qui-gon couldn't [TS]

00:29:59   tell the difference between two teenage [TS]

00:30:00   girls fear leads to anger anger leads to [TS]

00:30:02   hate hate leads to suffering suffering [TS]

00:30:04   leads to sitting stationary and chairs [TS]

00:30:07   in a circle the second and third moving [TS]

00:30:09   like again if you have the scene where [TS]

00:30:11   they're all sitting in these chairs like [TS]

00:30:12   yoda like this is the puppet Yoda right [TS]

00:30:15   it's not the CG Yoda until he's walking [TS]

00:30:16   around later writes it depends which [TS]

00:30:18   version you watch in the blu-ray version [TS]

00:30:21   he has been replaced with a cgi version [TS]

00:30:23   the fact that you're aware of that makes [TS]

00:30:24   me so sad for you dad i watched i watch [TS]

00:30:27   that version but he's trapped in that [TS]

00:30:29   chair and like it removes this essential [TS]

00:30:31   puppet nas's like everyone is trapped [TS]

00:30:33   chairs and talking to each other because [TS]

00:30:35   it's what what Muppets do the bouncy [TS]

00:30:37   walk right that's how you can tell it's [TS]

00:30:39   a friggin Muppet if not it's just a [TS]

00:30:40   little thing sticking out of a chair and [TS]

00:30:42   like all these scenes just people in [TS]

00:30:44   chair [TS]

00:30:45   talking about you could be like a pillow [TS]

00:30:46   know that you know I think I think [TS]

00:30:49   remove your essential puppet this is [TS]

00:30:51   just short of go wash the droid for me [TS]

00:30:53   as far as I'm concerned the mop it nests [TS]

00:30:57   and I liked when the Freud looking [TS]

00:30:59   member of the Jedi Council with the [TS]

00:31:00   forehead set your thoughts dwell on your [TS]

00:31:02   mother thought the movie was gonna go in [TS]

00:31:03   a completely different direction [TS]

00:31:05   tell me in small words the good things [TS]

00:31:08   about your mother though it was going at [TS]

00:31:10   all it sometimes the lightsaber is just [TS]

00:31:13   the lights favorite to watch the droid [TS]

00:31:15   Steve that's what I had two notes from [TS]

00:31:18   the Senate seen since we kind of jumped [TS]

00:31:20   over that first of all just I totally [TS]

00:31:21   understand how the Queen got elected [TS]

00:31:23   because she's a real dynamic presence [TS]

00:31:24   but secondly what what is it I'm [TS]

00:31:28   supposed to think about the fact that [TS]

00:31:30   Jar Jar finds the Queen pitty hot she [TS]

00:31:33   says she's pretty hot but that's that's [TS]

00:31:36   like good he was using that is good [TS]

00:31:38   have you seen Gungan ladies who is this [TS]

00:31:40   movie The Lord is my question what [TS]

00:31:43   exqueeze me you know i was saved from [TS]

00:31:45   that by the fact that i could not [TS]

00:31:46   understand a word that worried sino [TS]

00:31:48   couldn't have told us that he says [TS]

00:31:50   something about her looking something [TS]

00:31:52   something and he says pitty hot like oh [TS]

00:31:54   my god we don't know but I think that [TS]

00:31:57   means something else in going into the [TS]

00:31:58   brother seriously nothing going to jail [TS]

00:32:01   exactly warm [TS]

00:32:03   yeah exactly if I feel sorry for his [TS]

00:32:05   heavy there's our heads are heavy robes [TS]

00:32:07   in a really heavy hat [TS]

00:32:08   why didn't she live under the water and [TS]

00:32:10   a horrible swamp like normal people in a [TS]

00:32:12   bubble [TS]

00:32:13   yeah she did say that Tatooine was too [TS]

00:32:16   warm for her she's got ventilation [TS]

00:32:18   problems [TS]

00:32:18   space is cold Annie so it's we talked [TS]

00:32:21   about we talked about the the council [TS]

00:32:23   about the tweet [TS]

00:32:24   do we have that bit where where can we [TS]

00:32:26   mentioned briefly Anakin going to say [TS]

00:32:27   goodbye to Padme because i want to point [TS]

00:32:29   out that that's the Jimmy McNulty cameo [TS]

00:32:30   he's the guard who lets me out for not [TS]

00:32:34   trying to see those if the department's [TS]

00:32:37   i have here around that area is when [TS]

00:32:38   they go to the Gungans and this is the [TS]

00:32:41   worst reading an ally part of the entire [TS]

00:32:43   movie also terrible writing as usual I [TS]

00:32:45   asked you to help us [TS]

00:32:47   no I beg you to help us great riding [TS]

00:32:49   there how long did you have to think [TS]

00:32:50   about that she delivers line basically [TS]

00:32:52   exactly as I did and then the accented [TS]

00:32:55   crazy line that comes back is I will now [TS]

00:32:57   explain my internal mom [TS]

00:32:58   log out loud in adiabatic way you so no [TS]

00:33:01   thinking you greater than the Gungans me [TS]

00:33:03   said like that's it that's like that's [TS]

00:33:06   seriously you left off at Lee and they [TS]

00:33:08   want to do a little bit of you don't [TS]

00:33:10   think you're better than me i like that [TS]

00:33:12   and as NS rationale that doesn't [TS]

00:33:14   actually make sense you really had no no [TS]

00:33:16   and that's another minutes just it like [TS]

00:33:18   this you know right it's not writing [TS]

00:33:20   it's not even they're not even writing [TS]

00:33:21   dialogue it's just it just doesn't make [TS]

00:33:23   any sense that two-headed lightsaber [TS]

00:33:26   thing was kind of awesome [TS]

00:33:27   there's some people I some people who [TS]

00:33:29   are down on that some people in the chat [TS]

00:33:30   room down and some people like oh I [TS]

00:33:32   don't like that you kidding out of all [TS]

00:33:33   the things in this movie that are so [TS]

00:33:35   incredibly terrible you're not you're [TS]

00:33:36   gonna be all white slavers can't come [TS]

00:33:38   out about here's my problem with the [TS]

00:33:39   double-sided lightsaber the double-sided [TS]

00:33:42   lightsaber in of itself is cool [TS]

00:33:44   the fight is really cool it's nicely [TS]

00:33:45   choreographed only problem is it's just [TS]

00:33:48   like it's just like anything else [TS]

00:33:50   everything else we've been saying about [TS]

00:33:52   the lightsabers where it's just it's too [TS]

00:33:54   much [TS]

00:33:55   you're overselling the point of light [TS]

00:33:57   sabers and you it leads to something [TS]

00:33:59   like the what happens in the third [TS]

00:34:01   episode with the guy with like Brazilian [TS]

00:34:03   lightsabers in the million arms like [TS]

00:34:05   they just keep on overtopping it i like [TS]

00:34:08   the idea that some somewhere some stuff [TS]

00:34:10   Lord was like light server that's cool [TS]

00:34:12   what if i put two of them together [TS]

00:34:14   oh this is awesome why didn't I think of [TS]

00:34:16   this earlier twice as cool what if it [TS]

00:34:19   had three blades some light sabers are [TS]

00:34:22   basically razors and from our world [TS]

00:34:24   yes I do like the fact that he starts up [TS]

00:34:26   to one side and then wait to be [TS]

00:34:28   formatted react and it fires up the [TS]

00:34:30   other do the guys got face paint he [TS]

00:34:32   knows dramatic beads come on getting it [TS]

00:34:34   now to me that make up the lightsaber [TS]

00:34:36   fights in episode 4 through 6 look [TS]

00:34:38   really odd like that this is what [TS]

00:34:40   lightsaber face look fights look like [TS]

00:34:42   Ray part flip it around like a maniac [TS]

00:34:44   but it's there [TS]

00:34:45   they're over choreographed there's no [TS]

00:34:47   ever they spin when they don't need to [TS]

00:34:49   spend they jump when they don't need to [TS]

00:34:51   jump [TS]

00:34:51   there's a video out there on the [TS]

00:34:52   internet where they stopped the person [TS]

00:34:54   ducking from when he ducks and the [TS]

00:34:56   lightsaber would have missed him anyway [TS]

00:34:58   I i do have to say my this this provides [TS]

00:35:01   one of my favorite memories of going to [TS]

00:35:02   see this in the theater because the [TS]

00:35:04   point where Darth Maul comes in and the [TS]

00:35:06   jedis shrug off their robes a guy like [TS]

00:35:09   to lie two rows ahead because all j [TS]

00:35:12   I'm gonna throw down one of my favorite [TS]

00:35:15   memories of going to that but you know I [TS]

00:35:17   again i like i like kinda like Darth [TS]

00:35:19   Maul I think he's interesting he's in [TS]

00:35:21   three scenes he has the two lightsabers [TS]

00:35:23   he jumps around the reason we don't see [TS]

00:35:25   more people with two lightsabers is [TS]

00:35:27   because you know it's a it doesn't it [TS]

00:35:30   doesn't end up well it's more like more [TS]

00:35:32   like three rows it's although Casey and [TS]

00:35:34   again practical at these are all the [TS]

00:35:36   parts of the other thing that I like [TS]

00:35:38   what I don't like is there is yet [TS]

00:35:40   another incompetently designed I feel [TS]

00:35:44   like this was the early and early [TS]

00:35:45   designed by the same firm that that i [TS]

00:35:47   designed the Death Star a giant giant [TS]

00:35:49   power beams bridges without railing [TS]

00:35:51   riches without handrails people [TS]

00:35:54   handrails yeah they have them an empire [TS]

00:35:56   at least right there was Henry the [TS]

00:35:58   hallway of pointless force field and the [TS]

00:36:00   hallway of pointless force fields which [TS]

00:36:01   is one step away from galaxy quest my [TS]

00:36:03   favorite thing from the carnival when [TS]

00:36:05   she could have wished she could have [TS]

00:36:06   speed run through but they already [TS]

00:36:08   established earlier in the same exact [TS]

00:36:09   movie the dead i have the ability to [TS]

00:36:11   speedrun and he does not do that now [TS]

00:36:13   yeah you would have just taken a [TS]

00:36:14   lightsaber in the face that would have [TS]

00:36:15   been felt and totally like a video game [TS]

00:36:17   arbitrarily blocking you from getting [TS]

00:36:20   through [TS]

00:36:20   that's a boss fight yes but it does make [TS]

00:36:22   one of the one of the best better set [TS]

00:36:24   pieces i think in the film as dumb as it [TS]

00:36:26   is because i love the bit where where [TS]

00:36:29   Darth Maul is walking back and forth [TS]

00:36:32   menacingly and qui gonn goes down and [TS]

00:36:34   meditates that isn't over you want jumps [TS]

00:36:36   up and down to get himself psyched up I [TS]

00:36:38   mean I it was that scene was over [TS]

00:36:40   choreographed but like if you look at it [TS]

00:36:41   in the same vein as like kill bill or [TS]

00:36:43   crouching tiger hidden dragon those are [TS]

00:36:44   all over choreographing silly 2 i'm [TS]

00:36:46   willing to go with that I like those [TS]

00:36:47   type of fights i'm perfectly i just i [TS]

00:36:49   don't care about the characters i don't [TS]

00:36:50   care about anything else is going on in [TS]

00:36:52   this movie so that's that's the big [TS]

00:36:53   problem like i think about you know any [TS]

00:36:55   of these movies you if you don't have [TS]

00:36:57   any engagement the character plot only [TS]

00:36:59   thing you can do is try to appreciate it [TS]

00:37:00   on level of watching like a saturday [TS]

00:37:02   morning kungfu movie or whatever anyone [TS]

00:37:04   on that level it's like soso but the [TS]

00:37:06   Trade Federation their lips don't match [TS]

00:37:08   their words [TS]

00:37:09   yeah it's very that there is that vibe [TS]

00:37:11   going on there were like yeah well I i [TS]

00:37:13   cut together just the lightsaber battle [TS]

00:37:15   for that movie and if you put it [TS]

00:37:17   together in that way it looks like an [TS]

00:37:19   over choreograph lightsaber battle and [TS]

00:37:20   they do save it for the end of the movie [TS]

00:37:22   and it's not that long but its problems [TS]

00:37:24   like every other problems with [TS]

00:37:25   it's pointless the whole movie is [TS]

00:37:26   pointless you don't care about these [TS]

00:37:27   people it's dumb [TS]

00:37:28   don't everyone quiet and I was like all [TS]

00:37:30   the problems that right you could [TS]

00:37:31   possibly have any kind of narrative are [TS]

00:37:33   there but just that the choreography [TS]

00:37:35   yeah it ends in the most imp improbable [TS]

00:37:38   way possible which is that the guy who [TS]

00:37:40   clearly does not have advantage because [TS]

00:37:43   he's hanging from below [TS]

00:37:45   it's so shocking that he jumped up i [TS]

00:37:47   will not block first of all he [TS]

00:37:48   Telegraph's exactly what his next move [TS]

00:37:50   is going by looking stairs I where the [TS]

00:37:53   Fallen lightsaber is and then he flies [TS]

00:37:55   directly over the guy with the active [TS]

00:37:57   lightsabers head and then even worse and [TS]

00:38:00   and I can't believe that maybe this has [TS]

00:38:02   been pointed out before but first time [TS]

00:38:03   i've noticed it as obi-wan is leaping [TS]

00:38:06   over his head [TS]

00:38:07   the lightsaber changes hands that darth [TS]

00:38:10   maul's lightsaber actually moves from [TS]

00:38:11   the left to the right hand between [TS]

00:38:13   scenes matter he's not going to do [TS]

00:38:15   anything with the lightsaber anyway so [TS]

00:38:16   it doesn't matter but there's no way he [TS]

00:38:17   could have actually moved it from hand [TS]

00:38:19   to hand it's just it's just there's [TS]

00:38:20   someone waiting on you in here he has [TS]

00:38:22   complete control over everything that [TS]

00:38:24   goes on in the film [TS]

00:38:25   except I guess what the acceptance [TS]

00:38:27   cruelly and the script and and himself i [TS]

00:38:29   guess most importantly and he he manages [TS]

00:38:32   to screw up that crucial moment it's [TS]

00:38:34   unbelievable i would love to see the how [TS]

00:38:37   it should have ended things where like [TS]

00:38:38   as obi-wan flips over the head and get [TS]

00:38:40   sliced my God's lightsaber like Darth [TS]

00:38:42   Maul just like intercepts the lightsaber [TS]

00:38:44   and then stabs him [TS]

00:38:46   yep and then attaches the lightsaber to [TS]

00:38:49   the other end is broke up a t-shaped [TS]

00:38:53   lights and make notes off his parade as [TS]

00:38:55   a trophy that no no you guys you guys [TS]

00:38:58   missed the the most important thing [TS]

00:38:59   which is after after obi-wan is killed [TS]

00:39:01   by Darth Maul qui-gon gets up and goes [TS]

00:39:04   alright I gotta that guy [TS]

00:39:08   high five stars small but they missed ya [TS]

00:39:10   i thought i would never be rid of him [TS]

00:39:12   you want to be my powder 1 now see that [TS]

00:39:14   this was a really elaborate lie just to [TS]

00:39:17   get rid of obi-wan all man if Liam [TS]

00:39:20   Neeson turned out to be Darth Sidious [TS]

00:39:21   wow that would have blown my mind during [TS]

00:39:23   that scene that I did think of an idea a [TS]

00:39:25   product idea for the star wars universe [TS]

00:39:27   mitten clips for lightsabers think about [TS]

00:39:29   it [TS]

00:39:30   yep it was like how many i even just [TS]

00:39:32   that in the real star wars movies like [TS]

00:39:34   it they keep coming out of your hand if [TS]

00:39:35   you just get one of those little clips [TS]

00:39:36   that you put that you put the whole [TS]

00:39:37   depends on the winter it will [TS]

00:39:39   solve so many plot problem these movies [TS]

00:39:41   would be solved by a min clip to realize [TS]

00:39:43   this is the guy with the wii yeah I'm [TS]

00:39:45   saying the wii straps breaks you really [TS]

00:39:47   want to get something more sturdy like a [TS]

00:39:48   mitten clip i live in los angeles what's [TS]

00:39:50   a mitten clip I've lived near Los [TS]

00:39:53   Angeles and I know what we strap is is [TS]

00:39:56   that's another you can have another you [TS]

00:39:57   haven't go wash your garage glorious the [TS]

00:39:59   droids and presses the button that takes [TS]

00:40:02   them into space and flies him directly [TS]

00:40:04   at the Droid control ship he's too you [TS]

00:40:06   he's too young to be in the cockpit it's [TS]

00:40:08   like Space Camp anyone old enough to [TS]

00:40:09   remember Space Camp [TS]

00:40:11   yes like it's farce it's like farce at [TS]

00:40:12   that point like okay we understand it's [TS]

00:40:14   a kids movie no kid like probably has [TS]

00:40:16   gotten the space on the robot makes it [TS]

00:40:18   launched well he just gets in the ship [TS]

00:40:19   and just fly them into the battle like [TS]

00:40:20   that's not Star Wars it's not he pushes [TS]

00:40:23   render button spinning thing could be [TS]

00:40:25   fun let's do shots a good trick [TS]

00:40:27   I like to think that darth vader as he [TS]

00:40:29   spinning away from the destruction of [TS]

00:40:30   the Empire says hey I'm spinning again I [TS]

00:40:35   make it I make no connection between [TS]

00:40:36   those two people [TS]

00:40:38   none whatsoever QP and somebody explain [TS]

00:40:42   the design of the of the robot ship [TS]

00:40:47   no no but they used to be a whole bunch [TS]

00:40:49   of them but then there was just one and [TS]

00:40:50   once you flip that one you win [TS]

00:40:51   apparently why the donut with the with [TS]

00:40:53   the bite out of it it's it's probably a [TS]

00:40:55   corporate logo it's like corporate [TS]

00:40:57   sponsorship of ballparks it's a [TS]

00:40:58   corporate again its death star [TS]

00:40:59   architecture where there is a real [TS]

00:41:02   serious design flaw in that the reactor [TS]

00:41:04   core is right off the hangar deck which [TS]

00:41:07   you can fly into can and Cheryl [TS]

00:41:09   accidentally accidentally can someone [TS]

00:41:12   explain to me why there are a bunch of [TS]

00:41:14   battle droids just wandering around on [TS]

00:41:17   the ship we had enough got nowhere to be [TS]

00:41:19   why do they need to be their security [TS]

00:41:21   for security for what security patrol [TS]

00:41:24   and should they be all folded up and [TS]

00:41:25   stuck in a Iraq and when they're not [TS]

00:41:28   they're not out to it like there's [TS]

00:41:30   nobody on the ship to fight security [TS]

00:41:32   it like feels like five guys in the [TS]

00:41:33   boonies like five guys except for when [TS]

00:41:35   the Anakin's like fighter ends up there [TS]

00:41:37   by accident security for what security [TS]

00:41:41   building out right there can't be [TS]

00:41:43   unsupervised some reason there's a jail [TS]

00:41:45   the death star that the Trade Federation [TS]

00:41:47   guy is is confident because you'll never [TS]

00:41:50   get through their shields as they're [TS]

00:41:51   shooting [TS]

00:41:52   that the doughnut but the shield does [TS]

00:41:54   not extend over the door into the hair [TS]

00:41:56   bay [TS]

00:41:57   well there's particle shielding ratio [TS]

00:41:59   thing and I'll got him yeah you can fly [TS]

00:42:02   a ship which I just gave myself a way to [TS]

00:42:04   get you those those are fighter pilots [TS]

00:42:06   have to be really sad to their like a [TS]

00:42:08   that's one of ours coming out of there [TS]

00:42:09   it's a kid wow we really suck [TS]

00:42:13   private pilot's maybe you forgot that [TS]

00:42:15   the bite was out of the donut like take [TS]

00:42:17   that that flew off to the planet's [TS]

00:42:19   surface or something and they forgot [TS]

00:42:20   they were all stuck on autopilot one of [TS]

00:42:22   the fighter pilots is from Brooklyn he [TS]

00:42:23   says deflector shield is too strong [TS]

00:42:26   yeah yeah also also the the no backup [TS]

00:42:29   for the great white why is there one [TS]

00:42:30   Droid control ship I mean even if it had [TS]

00:42:32   just been there was another one and they [TS]

00:42:33   blew it up or something that is some [TS]

00:42:35   other jewelry control thing that they [TS]

00:42:37   could do but to just have it be well [TS]

00:42:38   there's this ship that controls all the [TS]

00:42:39   droids if you kill it then all the drugs [TS]

00:42:42   just travelers there's yeah there's [TS]

00:42:43   pairing issues if there's two Droid [TS]

00:42:45   control ship and the joys don't know [TS]

00:42:47   which one apparently you don't wanna see [TS]

00:42:48   split-brain droid is not good who [TS]

00:42:50   operates where does the jeff goldblum is [TS]

00:42:52   in the ship with Anakin may upload a [TS]

00:42:54   virus via powerbook and it can act [TS]

00:42:57   completely randomly in his except [TS]

00:42:58   successful exactly the way to charge our [TS]

00:43:00   is down on Naboo worth his flailing [TS]

00:43:03   around accidentally shooting people [TS]

00:43:06   right with a robot gonna get stuck on [TS]

00:43:08   his foot and ankle yeah i had actually [TS]

00:43:11   completely blanked out the whole I've [TS]

00:43:13   only seen this maybe three times and I [TS]

00:43:15   had completely blanked out the entire [TS]

00:43:17   sequence of charge are doing stupid [TS]

00:43:19   things on the planet is I had [TS]

00:43:20   recollections of that battle actually [TS]

00:43:22   been kind of cool it well i think it is [TS]

00:43:26   cool of the most part surgery which is [TS]

00:43:28   behind your services that's all there is [TS]

00:43:30   you're right yep the thing that bugs me [TS]

00:43:32   about Anakin's flight is that he pushes [TS]

00:43:35   random buttons healing I don't know [TS]

00:43:36   where the trigger is and it turned out [TS]

00:43:38   to be the big red button on the control [TS]

00:43:40   center the one shaped like a trigger [TS]

00:43:42   that one that's the trigger yeah he was [TS]

00:43:44   a natural pilot and was one of the [TS]

00:43:46   greatest pilots oops accidentally [TS]

00:43:48   started and i met your father he was [TS]

00:43:49   already a great pilot yes John so John [TS]

00:43:52   what are we forgetting because i might [TS]

00:43:53   notice now run out because i had lost [TS]

00:43:55   the will to live [TS]

00:43:56   i know because i have my notes start to [TS]

00:43:58   take on a sort of a suicidal flavor [TS]

00:44:01   they're so whole ones that I'm not [TS]

00:44:03   reading or it's just I i did I guess I [TS]

00:44:05   realized that was I was just writing the [TS]

00:44:07   words oh god or this is terrible and [TS]

00:44:09   with no context and thinking it would be [TS]

00:44:10   clear to you later but it's not it's not [TS]

00:44:12   clear to me this just says young man up [TS]

00:44:14   20 times in a row i doing to do best [TS]

00:44:18   worst part because if we don't want to [TS]

00:44:19   have one more point that i get to run [TS]

00:44:20   but if we do best worst yeah well it [TS]

00:44:22   will do that this let's let's are what [TS]

00:44:24   we'll wrap it up III wanted to say my [TS]

00:44:26   kids I asked them with some fear [TS]

00:44:29   afterward what they thought of the movie [TS]

00:44:30   they've seen it several times before and [TS]

00:44:33   they said it was good i like this is why [TS]

00:44:36   why did you like it makes it well I like [TS]

00:44:38   the podrace and and my daughter said she [TS]

00:44:41   actually really like that double decoy [TS]

00:44:43   thing that happens at the very end where [TS]

00:44:44   it's like oh they caught us low but it [TS]

00:44:46   does the decoy uh and that was it that [TS]

00:44:49   was all I got out of them so yeah that [TS]

00:44:52   was that that's what kids think of it [TS]

00:44:54   again I i have no problem with with your [TS]

00:44:57   ten-year-old eight-year-old kid's liking [TS]

00:44:59   the movie the problem is that it's not [TS]

00:45:01   going to be like those other Star Wars [TS]

00:45:03   movies where everybody can enjoy it [TS]

00:45:05   anything you shouldn't have shown this [TS]

00:45:07   movie to them because when they get [TS]

00:45:08   older this let's watch that star wars [TS]

00:45:09   movie that we have fond memories of [TS]

00:45:11   their gonna go god dad why why I know [TS]

00:45:14   no but I want them to do that welcome to [TS]

00:45:16   adulthood children its disappointment ok [TS]

00:45:19   so so we this has gone on for far too [TS]

00:45:21   long and this movie is far too terrible [TS]

00:45:23   so we're going to go around the room one [TS]

00:45:25   time and I'd like each of you to tell me [TS]

00:45:27   what you think the best the single best [TS]

00:45:30   and single worst thing in this movie is [TS]

00:45:34   and i'm going to start with John alright [TS]

00:45:37   the best they'll steal probably dance [TS]

00:45:40   best thing the best thing in this movie [TS]

00:45:42   is the soundtrack not the soundtrack as [TS]

00:45:45   it's played in the movie which i think [TS]

00:45:47   is done poorly and not highlighted all [TS]

00:45:49   but the soundtrack as it exists on the [TS]

00:45:52   soundtrack DVD that your CD that you can [TS]

00:45:54   buy and the reason I say this is because [TS]

00:45:56   when I stick in like that this music [TS]

00:45:58   over the menus in the blu-ray version of [TS]

00:46:00   this thing I when I stick that in and I [TS]

00:46:04   hear the music sometimes I think like [TS]

00:46:05   soundtracks for I like soundtracks from [TS]

00:46:08   movies for video games for TV show [TS]

00:46:10   sometimes I think are you like [TS]

00:46:11   soundtracks business soundtrack kind of [TS]

00:46:13   cheating isn't just a really triggering [TS]

00:46:14   the good [TS]

00:46:15   memories you have from the game that you [TS]

00:46:16   played or that movie that you like to [TS]

00:46:18   the TV show that you liked when I hear [TS]

00:46:20   the soundtrack to this movie just [TS]

00:46:21   playing over the menus or whatever like [TS]

00:46:23   mixed into my dreams collection i like [TS]

00:46:25   it but it's obviously has nothing to do [TS]

00:46:28   with good feelings from the movie [TS]

00:46:30   because I have such terrible feelings in [TS]

00:46:32   this movie so this vindicates my love [TS]

00:46:33   soundtrack say it's not just that you [TS]

00:46:35   are reliving something that you that you [TS]

00:46:37   like you can like a soundtrack on its [TS]

00:46:39   own completely independent of the [TS]

00:46:40   terrible terrible movies attached to [TS]

00:46:43   so I like the soundtrack I think it's [TS]

00:46:46   good i think they should take it and use [TS]

00:46:47   it in another much better movie proof uh [TS]

00:46:50   and the the worst thing about this movie [TS]

00:46:53   always something worse than it's so hard [TS]

00:46:55   to pick a single worst thing but i have [TS]

00:46:57   to pick this one because i can give me a [TS]

00:46:59   twofer [TS]

00:46:59   I have to pick the script because the [TS]

00:47:02   script encompasses both the in both the [TS]

00:47:04   individual like the mic the micro level [TS]

00:47:06   of the individual lines that are written [TS]

00:47:08   just terribly and just the overall story [TS]

00:47:11   because the script the script [TS]

00:47:12   encompasses that as well there is no way [TS]

00:47:15   to make a good movie out of the script [TS]

00:47:17   the end period [TS]

00:47:19   alright Greg gonna pass now have another [TS]

00:47:26   bad thing it i enjoyed Ewan McGregor's [TS]

00:47:30   accent yeah I think that's a good i'll [TS]

00:47:33   give us access he does i don't think he [TS]

00:47:35   says any interesting things with it [TS]

00:47:37   I don't think emotes into it but i like [TS]

00:47:39   his accent there's there's a rightness [TS]

00:47:41   to it that I that I can believe that [TS]

00:47:43   that that tone of voice becomes the [TS]

00:47:47   obi-wan Kenobi we know the script has [TS]

00:47:53   been taken I yeah I know I'm gonna have [TS]

00:47:56   to go with its not drafting Pickens it's [TS]

00:48:00   okay fair enough mr. forgetting to first [TS]

00:48:02   picture George Lucas is still on the [TS]

00:48:04   board you know what you think I like [TS]

00:48:05   least about this movie is the success of [TS]

00:48:07   the original trilogy this movie exists [TS]

00:48:10   because of the success of the original [TS]

00:48:12   trilogy it's just it's horrible it's [TS]

00:48:17   cutting its so much of my childhood so [TS]

00:48:20   much joy so much inspiration so much [TS]

00:48:22   passion came from Star Wars and then [TS]

00:48:26   this held me down and [TS]

00:48:28   spit in my face [TS]

00:48:31   so basically the will say your your [TS]

00:48:34   choices the destruction of positive [TS]

00:48:36   feelings about the previous movie i [TS]

00:48:38   still have those positive feelings but I [TS]

00:48:42   i I'm I'm rendered into inarticulate [TS]

00:48:44   honest okay okay Greg says read the it [TS]

00:48:47   causes him to be in articulating I think [TS]

00:48:50   I think that's everybody else is my [TS]

00:48:51   favorite thing wanting my favorite thing [TS]

00:48:55   is the sound effects during the podrace [TS]

00:48:58   I think they're really good [TS]

00:49:00   you can almost tell which pod is which [TS]

00:49:02   even if you close your eyes got all that [TS]

00:49:04   was awesome [TS]

00:49:06   yeah jon said he was the soundtrack [TS]

00:49:07   would be using another much better movie [TS]

00:49:09   the Padre sound effects have been used [TS]

00:49:12   in other much better movies all the time [TS]

00:49:14   they're all over the adventures which i [TS]

00:49:17   distracting at least my least favorite [TS]

00:49:20   thing is the decision to have Anakin [TS]

00:49:22   yeppie even whatever to make it is with [TS]

00:49:25   that grabs you never see him mouth the [TS]

00:49:30   word i think i think it was done in a [TS]

00:49:32   couple added that [TS]

00:49:33   yeah they went out of their way to go [TS]

00:49:34   after that we tell his highlights Monty [TS]

00:49:37   stole mine and because i'll just add to [TS]

00:49:39   that is that it is delivery of a line [TS]

00:49:41   that sounds like it is happiness forced [TS]

00:49:43   at gunpoint [TS]

00:49:44   yeah i think the u.p doesn't work on any [TS]

00:49:46   level and I don't see how they ever [TS]

00:49:48   thought it could have originally he [TS]

00:49:50   shouted socket to me that was strange so [TS]

00:49:53   they picked up Tim Lippe ran what about [TS]

00:49:56   you [TS]

00:49:57   my favorite thing about this movie is [TS]

00:49:59   that it resulted in the game Star Wars [TS]

00:50:02   Episode one racer because that's a [TS]

00:50:05   really fun game despite podracing a [TS]

00:50:07   movie being kinda silly i also I the UH [TS]

00:50:10   r2d2 has some cool things to do in this [TS]

00:50:13   movie actually two really can't even [TS]

00:50:16   even the additions that he gets in later [TS]

00:50:18   movies he really you know you can't [TS]

00:50:20   screw with r2d2 he just comes off as [TS]

00:50:22   looking awesome no matter what my least [TS]

00:50:25   favorite thing [TS]

00:50:27   piggybacking on everybody else I cannot [TS]

00:50:32   stand well no I'll go to my initial [TS]

00:50:34   point i cannot stand there is no main [TS]

00:50:36   character in this plot in this story and [TS]

00:50:39   the fact that [TS]

00:50:41   the most well-developed well fleshed out [TS]

00:50:43   characters wat oh alright damn i'm gonna [TS]

00:50:48   start with my worst thing which is [TS]

00:50:50   rampant racism [TS]

00:50:54   fair enough yeah just made me really [TS]

00:50:57   like again i have watched this movie [TS]

00:50:59   like like whenever i watch the movie [TS]

00:51:00   since 1999 or two thousand or so and I [TS]

00:51:04   think you know being a lot younger at [TS]

00:51:05   that point a lot of that I just you know [TS]

00:51:07   I was so blinded by seeing stars movie [TS]

00:51:09   that call it kinda went over my head but [TS]

00:51:10   this time it's just it's so it made me [TS]

00:51:13   cringe [TS]

00:51:13   I just couldn't take it and it's not [TS]

00:51:15   it's all over I was kind of surprised [TS]

00:51:17   when you guys to die hard I was [TS]

00:51:18   surprised you didn't talk about the [TS]

00:51:20   sexism and homophobia in that movie when [TS]

00:51:22   I was not much fun everyone there there [TS]

00:51:24   is a thing about the height there's a [TS]

00:51:26   there's the fact that is a movie of a [TS]

00:51:27   particular time [TS]

00:51:28   this is the movie over time almost a [TS]

00:51:30   long time ago yeah yeah yeah I wouldn't [TS]

00:51:35   andrei / to appear 1945 apparently you [TS]

00:51:39   know everything go be quite honest [TS]

00:51:40   having cocktails [TS]

00:51:41   yeah the racism yes radio is a game exam [TS]

00:51:45   but that doesn't like coming up firmly [TS]

00:51:47   against racism also slavery i basically [TS]

00:51:50   this is george lucas's attempt at making [TS]

00:51:52   Lincoln Day Lewis was great to start [TS]

00:51:58   more you know I believe Liam Neeson's [TS]

00:52:00   actually originally attached to be seen [TS]

00:52:02   again in Spielberg's Lincoln which you [TS]

00:52:04   know but then to be over when watch [TS]

00:52:06   phantom menace again [TS]

00:52:07   yeah and the best thing about this movie [TS]

00:52:10   is now that we've done this podcast [TS]

00:52:11   never have to watch it ever ever again [TS]

00:52:13   alright and i think steve are you the [TS]

00:52:18   last to get high except for you or me [TS]

00:52:20   yeah generously has waited until the end [TS]

00:52:23   yeah i think you're probably thinking [TS]

00:52:24   I'm going to say the poop jokes are my [TS]

00:52:26   favorite thing and we'd be right because [TS]

00:52:29   there are at least four of that media [TS]

00:52:31   there's a distressing number of kuzu [TS]

00:52:33   what but I'm not in in this film they [TS]

00:52:36   just make me sad because they they prove [TS]

00:52:39   that that that star wars films have [TS]

00:52:41   completed their trajectory into the [TS]

00:52:43   complete the juvenile and no crotch [TS]

00:52:45   shots you know they haven't completed [TS]

00:52:47   their directory by this movie you don't [TS]

00:52:49   think so now there's two more movies [TS]

00:52:50   after this i don't know i think this is [TS]

00:52:52   pretty much bargain-basement right here [TS]

00:52:54   no my favorite thing i'm going to go [TS]

00:52:56   with the hallway of pointless force [TS]

00:52:57   fields because it was the one right [TS]

00:52:59   the one bright shiny thing that I could [TS]

00:53:02   find in the last 40 minutes of the movie [TS]

00:53:04   as far as worst thing i'm going to go [TS]

00:53:08   with the fact that i find it really hard [TS]

00:53:11   to concentrate on the action in this [TS]

00:53:13   movie I put the action in quotes because [TS]

00:53:16   there's just so much crap going on in [TS]

00:53:18   the background [TS]

00:53:19   I mean most of it's admittedly more [TS]

00:53:21   interesting than the actual plot but [TS]

00:53:23   when i watch this movie because Lucas [TS]

00:53:26   can't restrain himself [TS]

00:53:28   I can't focus on what I'm supposed to be [TS]

00:53:30   paying attention to I mean that the you [TS]

00:53:32   know Jar Jar is doing his stupid step in [TS]

00:53:34   poop thing in the foreground and yet i'm [TS]

00:53:36   off in the distance somewhere that's [TS]

00:53:38   your brain trying to protect itself [TS]

00:53:39   that's what's happening [TS]

00:53:40   yeah i can i can kinda and that's why I [TS]

00:53:43   didn't see as far as i can tell i didn't [TS]

00:53:46   even notice all of the jar Jar stuff [TS]

00:53:48   going on in the battle sequence at the [TS]

00:53:49   end because there's so much other stuff [TS]

00:53:51   going on and it's just it's hard to keep [TS]

00:53:53   track of what's going on [TS]

00:53:55   alright what's what I'm supposed to be [TS]

00:53:56   focused on because you don't care about [TS]

00:53:57   any of it [TS]

00:53:58   well there's that and then part of the [TS]

00:53:59   part of problem I think is that this [TS]

00:54:00   movie is it's a cartoon with that just [TS]

00:54:04   happens to have some live actors in well [TS]

00:54:06   live fish was not slam cartoon 0ther [TS]

00:54:09   cartoons that are way more compelling [TS]

00:54:11   this is this is who arranged our rabbit [TS]

00:54:13   it's just one Bob Hoskins short of of [TS]

00:54:16   being I mean it's it happens we CGI [TS]

00:54:18   instead of traditional animation but [TS]

00:54:22   it's still a cartoon that happens to [TS]

00:54:23   have a few live actors in it and I [TS]

00:54:25   understand that the natural inclination [TS]

00:54:26   with the cartoon is is to do things that [TS]

00:54:29   you could normally do in live action [TS]

00:54:30   which is fine but Lucas just he can't [TS]

00:54:33   stop himself from jamming in every [TS]

00:54:36   conceivable idea however random and [TS]

00:54:39   pointless so i guess the the inability [TS]

00:54:42   of george lucas to restrain himself is [TS]

00:54:44   because the worst thing for me about [TS]

00:54:46   this film [TS]

00:54:47   okay uh here my 2 i'm gonna it's very [TS]

00:54:51   hard for me to pick one thing that I [TS]

00:54:53   think is the best thing in this movie [TS]

00:54:54   there's so many things to choose from [TS]

00:54:56   none of which are very good i'm gonna [TS]

00:54:59   sit Darth Maul because I think he's kind [TS]

00:55:01   of scary-looking I mean his dialogue [TS]

00:55:04   when he does speak and he's dubbed with [TS]

00:55:06   Peter [TS]

00:55:07   your enemy yeah that's crazy [TS]

00:55:10   look around you he doesn't say e it's [TS]

00:55:14   not the dialogues dialogues bad now we [TS]

00:55:17   will have our revenge but it's just he [TS]

00:55:18   jumps around and it's cool in the end [TS]

00:55:20   the fight me look scary and they don't [TS]

00:55:22   give him anything to do and he has to [TS]

00:55:24   ride on the motorcycle and he sends the [TS]

00:55:25   balls out to find info you know boy he [TS]

00:55:29   could have been a much more interesting [TS]

00:55:30   that they really should have used more [TS]

00:55:32   because he was he was interesting i [TS]

00:55:34   would like to see added a little dash of [TS]

00:55:35   of something that this movie [TS]

00:55:37   what's the motivation again he's on a [TS]

00:55:40   mission to find people and find the [TS]

00:55:42   Queen and kit and killer backsies mean [TS]

00:55:45   he does with his master's house he does [TS]

00:55:47   what is he's following orders John [TS]

00:55:49   anyway I thought he was cool this is the [TS]

00:55:51   best that's the best i can do just let [TS]

00:55:53   me have the right there and that college [TS]

00:55:55   would have been a hell of a lot easier [TS]

00:55:55   if I could have just sent the balls out [TS]

00:55:57   to find people so space so I was setting [TS]

00:56:03   Steve up there Steve knows I'm looking [TS]

00:56:04   out for a pic you sir [TS]

00:56:05   um I'm gonna say for my for my choice [TS]

00:56:08   for worse i'm gonna say i want to say [TS]

00:56:10   droids in all their forms are the worst [TS]

00:56:13   look sir droids it i think the dumb [TS]

00:56:16   Joker droids assume as i said the Roger [TS]

00:56:19   Roger are embarrassing and bad and and [TS]

00:56:24   deflate a lot of scenes that could have [TS]

00:56:26   had more more menace [TS]

00:56:29   so to speak to them then then we're [TS]

00:56:31   actually there i did like the battle [TS]

00:56:33   droids but but the Rope the main droids [TS]

00:56:36   I didn't like I don't like the backstory [TS]

00:56:39   for c-3po I the fact that us kids slave [TS]

00:56:44   on Tatooine is building a protocol droid [TS]

00:56:46   to you know serve tea and is Threepio a [TS]

00:56:50   kit [TS]

00:56:50   I mean he's a standard model but can you [TS]

00:56:52   order them through the mail and then [TS]

00:56:53   building at home you get from the same [TS]

00:56:55   from the build your own podracer people [TS]

00:56:57   artificial intelligences are really [TS]

00:56:59   cheap in this universe a by a brother [TS]

00:57:01   called ride [TS]

00:57:03   dan I just want you to do every podcast [TS]

00:57:05   in that voice from now I thought you're [TS]

00:57:08   against racism I do i do like the fact [TS]

00:57:12   that because he has no skin on we see [TS]

00:57:14   like things spinning inside them because [TS]

00:57:16   i always like to imagine that's how it [TS]

00:57:18   works windup I i well I [TS]

00:57:20   yeah maybe so that would be cool I I was [TS]

00:57:22   like to imagine that that c-3po was a [TS]

00:57:24   real robot and not a guy in a suit and [TS]

00:57:26   so in this movie he sort of is but in [TS]

00:57:28   general that whole retcon of him [TS]

00:57:31   building c-3po which is totally [TS]

00:57:33   unnecessary and stupid and you know the [TS]

00:57:36   way most the droid 2 r2d2 accepted [TS]

00:57:39   because they are hard to screw him up [TS]

00:57:40   because they can't write bad dialogue [TS]

00:57:41   for him i just i was disappointed and [TS]

00:57:44   the other again CPI just repeats it as a [TS]

00:57:46   question [TS]

00:57:47   well that's and it's pointless because [TS]

00:57:49   they end up wiping c3 people's memory [TS]

00:57:51   anyway so there's no reason for this to [TS]

00:57:52   be the same c-3po i love the idea that [TS]

00:57:55   it does provide hilarious especially [TS]

00:57:57   like at three o'clock in the morning [TS]

00:57:58   after you just watch this movie for the [TS]

00:57:59   first time hilarious like father for [TS]

00:58:01   discussion with know that scene in [TS]

00:58:03   Empire Strikes Back where boba fett goes [TS]

00:58:05   to shoot chewy Vader puts his hand down [TS]

00:58:07   so he doesn't shoot c-3po because he [TS]

00:58:09   remembers the c-3po is joined that he [TS]

00:58:11   built new be sad if you got shit let [TS]

00:58:12   yeah yeah totally i was that totally [TS]

00:58:14   makes sense anything r2d2 says in the [TS]

00:58:17   first half hour of a new hope is now [TS]

00:58:19   very sarcastic because he recognizes [TS]

00:58:22   Tatooine [TS]

00:58:23   yeah he's like why are you going that [TS]

00:58:25   way that beeps this is right after that [TS]

00:58:27   is because this is where you were built [TS]

00:58:29   more on it [TS]

00:58:31   exactly it see again our to do with [TS]

00:58:34   Morgellons the best victims [TS]

00:58:36   yeah it's delightfully Starkey he is and [TS]

00:58:39   then we can put whatever we want in and [TS]

00:58:41   into his beeps instead of having to [TS]

00:58:44   listen to the actual alright well this [TS]

00:58:47   was a newly new year's resolution and [TS]

00:58:48   like so many it was ill-considered and I [TS]

00:58:51   regret it but there it is we did it [TS]

00:58:56   what have we learned nothing roger ebert [TS]

00:59:00   gave the movie four-and-a-half stars he [TS]

00:59:02   don't know not four-and-a-half I can [TS]

00:59:04   talk myself into liking anything you [TS]

00:59:08   know it's funny you say that but it [TS]

00:59:09   doesn't sound like you really like this [TS]

00:59:11   movie that much to be honest with you I [TS]

00:59:13   don't actively like it [TS]

00:59:15   I've done a lot of work and I've gotten [TS]

00:59:17   to the point where I'm ok with it your [TS]

00:59:19   hand is watch it four bits i like that's [TS]

00:59:21   what you choose to watch this like [TS]

00:59:23   voluntarily i have yeah probably not [TS]

00:59:26   right now can i watch it last week but i [TS]

00:59:29   want you ever watch it again [TS]

00:59:30   yeah you have to say the first the first [TS]

00:59:32   time i watch this [TS]

00:59:34   having been primed with with so many bad [TS]

00:59:36   things about it from other people [TS]

00:59:37   i I didn't mind it I thought it was [TS]

00:59:39   actually pretty okay and I could see [TS]

00:59:40   showing it to my kids and now that I've [TS]

00:59:42   watched it again and I've actually seen [TS]

00:59:44   some of the things i missed the first [TS]

00:59:46   time and then I recognize how dismissive [TS]

00:59:48   truly is it was worse than I remember it [TS]

00:59:51   all with a million times much to it was [TS]

00:59:53   worse than I remember and I've seen this [TS]

00:59:55   movie a lot and I thought I'm gonna [TS]

00:59:56   watching iowa came into it thinking [TS]

00:59:57   alright i haven't watched moving so many [TS]

00:59:59   year [TS]

00:59:59   year [TS]

01:00:00   is I have the blu-ray version of it [TS]

01:00:01   maybe a lot but i figured i would get [TS]

01:00:03   some enjoyment out of some aspects of [TS]

01:00:05   those remember like it's not as bad as [TS]

01:00:06   you thought it was the opposite it was [TS]

01:00:08   so much worse i cannot argue that I feel [TS]

01:00:10   like melting this digg this disk now [TS]

01:00:12   well good news guys attack of the clones [TS]

01:00:14   is way better [TS]

01:00:16   oh it's no Hudson Hawk I literally [TS]

01:00:20   remember absolutely nothing about attack [TS]

01:00:23   of the clones that's interesting exact [TS]

01:00:25   I've seen it once i saw it in the [TS]

01:00:27   theater one yet not seen attack of the [TS]
