Anyway – as I was watching the film, I was excusing the sloppy shots, the sloppy use of the Clone Troopers and Droids – undoing all the awesome work that Genndy had done – and the droids are silly again. The Clone Troopers are limp. And the Jedi – they’re at 25% power from the mind of Genndy. But I was accepting that. I figured that was Lucas dialing back so that the animated series wouldn’t overpower his features.

<b>Then they introduced Baby Jabba aka Rotta the Huttlet aka Stinky. At the point of this character’s introduction – it officially became, the worst character in the history of STAR WARS. If you hate George Lucas cutsiepoo bull**** – oooooooh boy. You’re gonna have a field day of venting and hatred directed at this unbelievably ****ing awful little ****.</b>

Oh – but wait… Little Stinky the Hutt isn’t the worst character in the history of STAR WARS… because Stinky got introduced earlier in the film. As much as I hated lil Stinky… I was weathering Stinky. I seriously was. But later there was a character of such immense **** – offensively bad. The character was so bad, so incredibly awful – that it was a slap to the face. It woke me out of my ****-accepting stupor and made me angry. SUDDENLY my “inner fanboy rage” was awoken.

<b>As I watched this terrifyingly awful character named Ziro the Hutt. A seemingly female Hutt – with tattoos and make-up that sounds like a racist take on a Black New Orleans Crack-Dealing Whore. Because this Hutt speaks ENGLISH – and it is many times worse than I’m actually describing.</b>

can you give a little history on this animated thing? is this an official star wars project by george lucas? is it part of the series? does this mean no more "real" movies? im kind of confused, but i've only seen 3 of the 6 anyhow, so that's to be expected

licensed by lucas and based off the animated series the guy who did samurai jack and dexters lab did for cartoon network. it's got a movie premire and then it's supposed to be like weekly half hour installments on TNT or something.


in terms of canon within the star wars story, i believe it is. i don't know if he's ruled out movies again but i'd bet you anything if luke hadn't gone and gotten so fat we'd be facing a sequel trilogy set after episode six.

If they are worse than Jar-Jar Binks, they deserve a medal. That takes skill to be more annoying than Jar-Jar.

WB made aintitcool pull the reviews undtil friday, because of some "embargo", while other, more favorable reviews are allowed to stay online. PR-failure of an enourmous scale....

why is he even doing this after we've already had a cartoon series based on the clone wars?
The money, obviously, is a part of it but did he really feel the need to put his own stamp on this or what?

It's time to face facts here. George Lucas is a jackass.

man this (raven)guy hated my guts.

I'm not surprised he was the kind of gigantic undiscriminating nerd that goes to see the star wars Clone Wars movie.

Oh, was he quoting from the article (which is dead)? Ill assume he was then. That wasn't exactly clear. Since there were no quotation marks or italics.
