|Title:||Star Wars: Attack of the Clones|
|02.26.17||Blu-ray|| I feel like it's been a really long time since I've seen this... |
The romantic scenes with Padme and Anakin are maybe the lowest lows of the whole series.
There was more Clone battle footage than I remembered. Those five minutes lay out what became multiple games and shows. It's an astounding amount of design, most of which is very cool.
Most of the movie seems to swap between Obi Wan doing somewhat interesting things and Anakin doing terribly painful to watch things.
The Jedi arena battle would've been ten times cooler if every shot wasn't intercut with C-3P0 making some corny joke.
Still cool to see Yoda fight.
I really could swear that they went in and did some effects polish on these Blus. I could've sworn that Christopher Lee's composited head during the fight scene was WAY more noticeable.
So much hate for Hayden Christensen. I don't really blame Jake Lloyd... i mean he was a kid. It's Lucas' fault for not pulling a better performance out of him. But Hayden is old enough to know better. He's still constrained by some really terrible dialogue though.
As much as I like Natalie Portman, she has more costume changes than most movies have with all of their characters. It's like every shot is a different ornate Naboo-ian garb.
I still hate that all of a sudden Boba Fett shares DNA with EVERY clone trooper. Take some cool tertiary character that fans love and ruin it by making him the center of the universe. I hate that.
A lot of the sets look like straight up paintings. I think maybe Lucas just went too digital too fast. I really felt it.
Who the fuck was Jedi Master Sifo Dyas?
