I take back most of the shitty thoughts I've had about him. That's really terrific.
I'm in love with rock and roll and I'll be out all night.

Good for him. Education is good but I still think the Star Wars movies are mostly crap.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

I find your lack of faith disturbing.
"(512) ybbodeus looks just as creepy in HD as in person."   That is a problem, and we are working on it.

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

I guess you guys haven't spent an evening watching the movies Disney made supporting the US war effort in WWII on youtube. Some amazing stuff.

Luke, Han & Leia may return in new trilogy.

Episode 7:  Return of the Wrinkly.

That...is fucking genius.

It really is. Drew McWeeny did a series of articles showin his kids the films in a similar order (but including Ep. 1) and it was just a brilliant read.
I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

Unfortunately, Ep.1 has all the Darth Maul stuff who I thought was pretty cool.

I saw the first three back-to-back-to-back at the Paramount in Austin in 1991 back when people only vaguely remembered pop culture, so they were both familiar and pretty fresh. Best movie experience of my life.

'Machete Order' fails in 2 key ways:

1)Recommending that people watch ANY of the prequels.

2)Not actually having anything to do with the film 'Machete'.

Nice find. I enjoyed the read.

I read about someone that apparently took the prequels and re-edited into what viewers said was an outstanding stand-alone movie, but one that no one will ever see.

Star Wars sequels to follow the Marvel comics structure of multiple parallel character development movies culminating in an ensemble effort.  They are looking to release two or three movies a year.

The comment about the successful splitting of single episodes into multiple films is yet another example of life imitating The Onion.
