Your Fears Are Confirmed

The Clone Wars is a piece of shit.

It's not even a case of if, it's a case of how smelly, chunky, and biohazardous it is. When the fanboy stroke club says its shit, you're in serious trouble.

Pajiba, bless its' collective cynical and misanthropic heart, had two really good points in the comments:

1. Lucas has great ideas, but unless he's in collaboration other more talented artists (like Speilberg) whom are not yes-men, his work sucks. (And Spielberg has the same problems himself - I point you at the new Indy movie as evidence.)

2. The Extended Star Wars Universe, mostly made up of the books, has been consistently better than the original source material and author, even if mass market franchise scifi is full of stepping up hack writers. Yes, I'm pointing at you, Kevin Anderson. If need a Star Wars fix, it's advised you hit your friendly bookstore. (I like recommending the X-Wing series by Stackpole and Allston)

Funny, I thought this was a video game when I first saw the commercials. When I realized it was a movie, I didn't expect much. You've confirmed that it's not, I guess.

Wall-E was good fun.

Here's an amazing critique of the movie and the whole Star Wars mythology, idio. Sounds like a geek after your own heart! I love Lance!
