I love Star Wars.
Three W's In My Life: Ward, Weinke, and Winston
Shakespeare meets SW?
Link maybe didn't work,
Just finished watching the episode entitled "Lair of Grevious" from TCW Season 1 and my feelings for Kit Fisto are still the same. Totally awesome.
Didn't they cancel Clone Wars?
Yea. They aren't releasing any more episodes on television for a season 6. Instead they're just releasing them online in shorts or something like that.
Voted for Qui-Gon and Maul today.
I would have voted Obi-Wan if they used Episode IV pic but they used Episode III one.
And that's one reason why I think this bracket is bollocks. IMO it will be a bunch of kids voting for their clone wars heroes. General Grievous? Really?
Yea. He got beat to hell though. 92% Vader if I remember right.
I'm honestly torn on Qui-Gon and Ob-Wan.....who do y'all think I should choose and why?
Make a short case for each
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
I wish I knew more of Qui-gons back story and I plan on reading some of the adult novels he is featured in. I just really liked him in Episode I and thought Obi-Wan was kinda whiney and annoying in prequels.
In Original trilogy though I think obi-wan is very cool and love alec guinness
I know nothing of Qui-Gon except the first episode.
I'm gonna choose Obi solely because of what I think is the most important scene in IV
Qui-Gon was a Gray Jedi. Always played by his own set of rules, and bent the Jedi codes rules when convenient. Solid Jedi who at least gave Anakin a shot at the lightside before falling. With all the events that have taken place on tatooine, it was only a matter of time before he was discovered. Got owned by an apprentice. Never trusted the council to do the right thing, at least in his opinion, which was training Anakin. Also, had a chance to blow a lot of plans up if he had listened to Tyrannus and at least alerted the Jedi to their presence.
Obi-wan, apprentice to QG. One of the more revered Jedi for his maturity and understanding of the force. Strict follower of the Jedi code (for the most part, get to that in a second). Trained Anakin at the request of his master, a mistake, dude went from being an apprentice to teacher in like thirty seconds. Defeated Maul, and eventually defeated Anakin, again, didn't do what needed to be done because of emotional attachments. Which leads to his biggest drawback, he let's his feelings for Anakin blind himself from seeing his constant anger. Everyone else sensed it in him, but they let it go because Ben vouched for him. That didn't turn out so well.
But come on man, It's fricking Ben Kenobi, this ain't that hard.

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
Where you get this from? Would love to read that. +1 on entire post.
Tyrannus mentions talking to QG about the same conversation they had in front of us, the one about Sidious.
Apparently Sidious followed the rule of two, but had like a thousand various acolytes. I have no way of supporting the time frame underwhich the conversation would have taken place. Tyrannus has been associated with Sidious before he knew he was a Sith Lord.
Well Obi-Wan vs. Qui-Gon was the closest matchup yet. I went Luke and Salacious Crumb today lol
Me too lol
Note: While this may not be the thread for it but....for those that want to see the Desolation of Smaug trailer there will be a special even held on the 24th for the trailer, but you have to have a code that can only be gotten from the Unexpected Journey DVD/Blu-Ray. Just a heads up in case y'all were wondering
I will get those on blu ray when they come out with the trilogy extended edition blu ray pack like I have for LOTR.
I was gonna go wait for the extended addition, but I have to see the trailer now
I'm all for compiling threads. Star Wars and Tolkien.
I don't know if that would be the best idea.
i love tolkien and lotr/the hobbit, but lets not mix these threads.
i'm having enough trouble keeping up with the game of thrones thread and this one separate, i'd be lost if those 2 (or similar) were combined.
So there is a majority of nay votes so far. The Doak, what do you say? And any other lurkers?
