Or, to put it another way, a "like rate" of 7.7% to 1.9% in favor of Arny. But you're even more likeable. You're at 14%. :)

The problem comes from people thinking that a visually appealing product must have audibly superior audio engineering. Belief and objective reality are two different things.

Actually, I read that part of the pre-dystopian part of the story IS covered, and changed. IOW, a different continuity.

I read in another thread that someone who's seen the film says it's NOT a sequel but a total reboot. It junks significant parts of the continuity from Mad Max and TRW, and also

Unless, it seems, the “works of art” belong to George Lucas.

I still like AG, but I think, like Star Wars, it was made before Lucas became a corporate suit, ie a director instead of a "filmmaker" (his description). I do tend to agree striking a chord with...

The tone of those scenes was much more juvenile than that in the other films.
It’s called damning with not even faint praise: “Hey, at least it’s better than Plan 9!”. Yeah, Lucas had a bigger...

Not nearly as juvenile as the poop and fart jokes in TPM.

And a more juvenile fool than in the other films.

The number of films on the lists is arbitrary; the opinions are not. Like I said,...

Her claims are in line with the "conventional" High End "wisdom" regarding FLAC. Once such things are "determined", it seems almost impossible to "undetermine" them.

An opinion shared by many many others. You think the humor in the film is adult and sophisticated?

No. Jar Jar is present in much more than 2% of the film. You think he's a mature,...

Once again, you appear to contradict yourself. I say the film is too juvenile, and you and other defenders respond with “but the movies were always meant for the kiddies”. Now you’re saying ”oh,...

A modern motion picture filled with dazzling sound and special effects is always going to appeal to kids more than older books, so I don’t know what point you’re trying to make here.

There are kids and there are kids. The original movies were aimed at 14 year olds. TPM was aimed more at 7 year olds. That’s a big difference. Also, I remember a discussion between Siskel and...

Yeah, I'm sure the kids were extremely interested in the plotline about "trade disputes".


It's interesting to contrast the reaction of fans to TPM, over which Lucas had total control, to that of...

Oh, so you acknowledge that "expert opinion" must be measured against its congruence with the real world, and that the real world is the ultimate reference, not "expert opinion".
