Droids and Brothers

From a conversation with Amy last night:

Amy: Bob got his DVD of Episode III last night.

Me: Personally, I’m a lot more comfortable pretending that the whole prequel never happened. In Episode 4, Obi-Wan says “Luke, here’s your Dad’s lightsaber. He wanted you to have it,” and I’m yelling, “No he didn’t.” And Anakin making C3-P0? So that means C3-P0 is kind of like Luke’s brother?

Amy: Only in the way that Henry Ford’s Model T was his son’s brother.


  1. Bobber says:

    Amazing the insights these artists have isn’t it? So is Amy learning any Tagalog? Might need it for your upcoming trip.

  2. Tim says:

    Totally. What happened to “he betrayed and murdered your father”? Sounds better than “Your father? Oh, I cut his legs off and left him burning by a lava floe” don’t you think? Please.

  3. COD says:

    I’m just jealous that you can have that conversation with your SO ;) My wife would be like, what prequel? What’s a droid?

  4. Ben says:

    Now I personally thought that the prequels would have been fine if there was more lava….

  5. Tim says:

    More lava. Hee. Yea.

  6. PastaKeith says:

    The prequel = lame. Where were the awesome jedi? Let’s see Jedi crushing starships with their powers. Let’s see 40 jedi fighting people with… lightsabers! Aren’t jedi enemies always using lightsabers? The Darth Maul vs. Qui Gon and Obi Wan scene must have cost a ton, b/c the fight scenes were miserable in EP II. Ep I could have just been the five minute fight at the end and I would have been happy. And Jango Fett? The guy is a loser!

    This was better than episode I: http://www.lego.com/starwars/anakin.asp?x=x

    And this was almost as good as the original trilogy: http://www.starwars.com/clonewars/

    Just one man’s opinion… of course.
