    You know I've never been as addicted as you (Being a lover of the 'Ye olde' variety of fiction) but I really do love those movies, and speaking of Star Wars in a gaming forum... Force Unleashed, should rock out loud

    Well I'm not a big fan of the series, but for the most part I enjoyed the films I did see.

    I of course saw the first film, but can't recall which of the other ones I saw at the moment. When I saw the first one I was amazed though, as at the time I wasn't too familiar with space related films and the whole concept appealed to me, especially the light saber.

    I like the original trilogy.

    The 3 newer ones suck out loud.

    I like the lot of 'em.

    Only problem I've got is (and I know I'm kinda disregarding the whole "fiction" thing) with the lightsabers. Sure they're cool and all but it is impossible to stop "light" (if thats what it is) at such a short distance if the "light" were to be that powerful. If you get my meaning.

    Now I don't usually sit down and think about things like that, but it kind of just struck me one day that it didn't make sense.

    Oh well.. Stilll... Great movies. :p

    I disagree.
    I Love the new movies, because i never expected them to be like the original.
    The original's have many differant themes and character Ideas, Being much more uplifting( excluding Empire strikes back)

    The new trilogy was to show that vader was supposed to be a tragic character, and to that purpose they suceed. I'm not saying that there as good as the originals, But there still great movies.
    I love Revenge of the sith. It is a masterpiece of science fiction and Drama.
    That is not debatable with me.

    Also, the lightsaber "blade" is made by a very tight loop of highly focused energy, possibly a loop of plasma contained in a strong magnetic or other field which compresses the circular loop so much that it looks like a cylindrical bar.

    But for it to stop so suddenly, even with a magnetic force behind it, it would have to be extremely stronger than the force that is containing it in a cylindrical shape. So even if it were possible to stop such a force, it would not be able to stop so suddenly.. it would kinda become less "dense" as it went.

    Not at all, I myself like star trek. (probably not as much as star wars) And my dad is probably one of the biggest trekkie watchers I've seen. I'm not saying he goes around collecting action figures and all, but he really loves the series... Anyway, I myself really like Stargate over both together.

    To retract the blade they just stop the energy.
    Like turning off a light switch turns out a light.

    the light sabers are made out of crystals or something like that, and vader has artificial ones, thats why his saber shorts out in ep 4 a new hope. also before luke came along, they had to hold down a button the whole time to keep the saber on, but luke made his own so he had a switch on it... at least thats what the books say.

    Yeah, with the addition of the books, comics, games, ext, the Star Wars storyline gets WAY to complicated for my tastes. Original trilogy for me, thanks.

    I don't mean to retract it.... I mean for the beam itself to stop at that distance, not turning off.

    Lightsabers ARC!
    Then energy is bent over backward back to the Hilt, And the lightsaber has a receptor to recycle energy, so it doesn't burn power if it is not in contact with anything.

    As for the buttons, it was preference, buttons acted as a killswitch, if the Jedi lost his saber, it would switch off, safer that way.
    By the way, I like Star Wars.
    And Star Trek, Voyager FTW!

    Anything except the 3 newer garbage movies. The recent 3 were just cashing in on the money that new Star Wars movies would inevetably make.

    I dunno, I saw the original 3 at a young age, and the simplicity and fantasy in the old 3 were just perfect. The newer 3 try to take it in another direction, turning over all these Geo-political stones and stuff, it just ruins the series for me, to be honest.

    Although Episode 3 was probably the best of the 3 new ones. Episodes 1 and 2 were fucking HORRIBLE in my opinion, however.

    Of the 3 Originals, hmm, probably the Empire Strikes Back.

    I've never ever gotten into it. Never ever watched an entire movie of it.

    ALTHOUGH I have played a Star Wars game on the N64 and it was as worse as that Pilot game.

    It just never appealed to me and it still doesn't.

    Well, IMO it is hard to make a judgment without actually watching it, so if you get the time, why don't you sit down and maybe watch one? You never know, you might end up liking it.
