  • We will be using the Blu Ray discs for these recordings. The recently released digital copies will also work
  • Each recording will start at the 00:00:01 mark (the black screen before the logos appear)
  • We will give a “3, 2, 1, play” count. When we say play, that’s your cue to start the film

Sit back and enjoy!

EU Retrospective: Attack of the Clones

I took a few days off for Thanksgiving (and so I won’t completely kill Brian with my fast reading speed) but we’re back with more Prequel Era books!  This time, half of the books were obvious tie-ins to books from much further down the timeline and two of them were, well, Attack of the Clones based.  This one’s a bit more of a mixed bag than before.

Rogue Planet
Okay so you know how some people hate Boba Fett and get annoyed by how fans adore him and he gets all these appearances etc etc?  Yeah, that’s me except with Tarkin and the building of the Death Star.  Honestly, what is this obsession that EU authors have with him and the Death Star?  I mean, I know it was a cool looking space station that blew planets up but can we not credit everyone and their mother with its construction?

Overall, the book’s okay but it’s so obviously there for the New Jedi Order that it feels far too much like an extended short story sometimes.  Character-wise, it’s good.  I actually really enjoyed getting some insight into the early years of Obi-Wan and Anakin’s Master/Padawan relationship.  I also rather enjoy Thracia Cho Leem because anyone who can out sass Mace Windu and have his respect deserves your respect.  It’s too bad that she leaves the Jedi Order because wow is he going to need her in about a decade when Shatterpoint happens….  The only thing I’m really not fond of is getting beaten over the head with “Oooo Anakin’s going to fall to the Dark Side one day!”.  I get what Greg Bear was doing but at times, it felt like a bit too much.  Also, I will be forever sad that Anakin didn’t get to keep his ship.  Poor baby.

Attack of the Clones Turns 10

On this day ten years ago, Attack of the Clones released released to theaters. Given that I was twelve and at the mercy of my parents disdain for going to the cinema, I didn’t get to see it until about two weeks later when a friend offered to take me. In our house, I usually didn’t get to see something until it released on VHS or DVD.

My memories from the first time I saw it are somewhat vague. Something something Fetts something something look at all those lightsabers something something HOLY CRAP YODA HOLY CRAP DEATH STAR SCHEMATICS.
