ummm…. yeah

So we have one vote against the current MP3 was logged in the last post’s comment section. Honestly I didn’t think it was that bad. But then again there is no accounting for taste.

Speaking of taste, I have to agree with some of the points Heather brought up about Attack of the Clones. Personally, while he may be one of the biggest Bad Asses to grace the screen in a while, Samuel L. Jackson should never be allowed to swing a lightsabre again. Please someone give Star Wars Shaft a blaster. If he was a background character it wouldn’t have been as distracting, but he’s set up a a top Jedi Swordsman (Saberman?) and he just doesn’t move well enough for it. Yeah I know I’m being a picky martial artist… deal. :-)

Also could someone teach Natalie Portman how to fire a gun. Either that or get her a better prop. I’m not sure if it was too heavy for her or to large but man was her use of a blaster cringe worthy. And speaking of Ms. Portman, what is it with Nipples in movies now a days? First Spiderman and now Star Wars. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about the nipples (that really didn’t come out the way I meant it to), but they just don’t have a place in these films. I think they just bring a level of base sexuality that isn’t welcome in these iconic films. Plus the snicking of teenage boys all around me is kinda distracting. And I really don’t like having to consider if I’m going to be sitting at “nipple level” when choosing a seat in the theatre.

But overall I liked Attack of the Clones a lot. The key thing is that you need to expect a Star Wars movie and within that context it works really well.
