I’m Sorry?!

Okay, I know I keep saying it, but I really am sorry for not having blogged in a while.  I have been completely overwhelmed by the whole “home ownership” thing.  Just to give you an idea of all of the work that I have been doing around my house, here’s a list of things I completed in the last two weeks:  New roof was put on the garage, new water main put into the house, washer leveled, new kitchen sink installed, driveway sealed, dining room carpet removed, carpeting installed in the guest bedroom, chicken coupe removed from the back yard, and countless hours of yardwork.  This is only some of the things I’ve done in the past two weeks.  So, I need to make some changes to how I am going to run this website.  I’ve decided that instead of updating this website every day, I’m going to make my updates once a week.  This will also give me the time to concentrate my efforts on my first podcast.  I know many of you check my blog on a daily basis and are probably very dissappointed by my decision.  However, due to all the changes in my personal life and my living space, I need to take more time away from the blog.  If things slow down later, I will start to blog more.  Now onto the wrap up of all of the characters in Attack of the Clones……


Okay, so here is a review of the characters from Attack of the Clones in the order they appeared on my blog:

Captain Typho

“However, on his watch, there are three attempts on Amidala’s life and he attempts to avert none of them.”

“I’m just not that impressed with Captain Typho and his abilities to execute his job.”

Captain Typho:  * (1)

Senator Amidala

“When I first saw Attack of the Clones, I really liked the Amidala character.  I thought she played the “lover” role very well and I also thought she balanced the role of a strong woman with that role.”

“I mean, how can you beat Sentor Amidala in a leather corsette and a plunging neckline looking like a hot chick?  Okay, maybe because I’m a guy it does a lot more for me, but I really liked her outfits in this movie.”

Senator Amidala:  ******* (7)

Anakin Skywalker (The Teenager)

“Anakin is basically a 17 or 18 year old teenager that is on the verge of rebelling from his father figure which happens to be Obi-Wan Kenobi.  When I first saw this movie, I thought the Anakin role in this movie sucked.  But as I watched this movie a few more times, my viewpoint changed.”

“Anakin Skywalker plays the perfect role of the character in complete confusion.  I believe that this is what makes judging this role so hard in Attack of the Clones.”

“I would like to say that Hayden Christensen was the PERFECT actor for this role!  He played this concept very well.  I believe that he got bashed for no reason at all and that fans just weren’t able to understand such a complex character.”

Anakin Skywalker (teenager):  ********* (9)

Obi-Wan Kenobi (as the father)

“Obi-Wan is definetly a powerful Jedi by the time this movie hits the major timeline.”

“Some of the most powerful fight scenes in Attack of the Clones include Obi-Wan Kenobi.  I believe that Ewan McGreggor does a great job making this movie an even better movie than all the hype that was given to it.”

Obi-Wan Kenobi:  ********** (10)

Zam Wessel

“Although Zam only appears for a short while in the movie, her role I think is diminished by the average Star Wars fan.”

“I think that Lucas created one great chase and fight scene using Zam and I became more intrigued by her character because of this movie.”

Zam Wessel:  ******* (7)

Jango Fett

“The idea of this character being in a movie reminded me of the days that I first learned about Bounty Hunters in The Empire Strikes Back.  I must truly say, that this is what made me most interested in this movie.”

“I believe that Temuera Morrison did an absolutely incredible job with this character.  I have to say, of all the Star Wars cast members that I would want to meet, Temuera would be my first choice.”

“Really, Jango is just an awesome bad guy!  I defy anyone to find a better bad guy in all the history of Star Wars!”

Jango Fett:  ********** (10)

Count Dooku

“There is never any mention of him before this point and there seems to be much disdain for a man that no one knows anything about.”

“So, instead of trying to find a character to fit Christopher Lee into, I think Lucas developed a character that Christopher Lee could play.  After he screwed up with this character, he kills him off fairly quick in The Revenge of the Sith.”

Count Dooku/Darth Tyrannus:  *** (3)

Yoda

“I often thought about why such a short, seemingly powerless Jedi can end up as the head of the Jedi Council.”

“Yoda kicks butt and amazingly seems to have no problem fighting off the Sith Lord.”

Yoda:  ********** (10)

Kit Fisto

“I do have a million and one questions about Kit Fisto.  First off, he’s supposed to be a really important Jedi.  So, if he’s so important, then why dont’ we ever see him on the council?  Why don’t we see him in the chambers?  Is it possible that he’s not actually an acting member of the council?”

Kit Fisto:  ********* (9)

Mace Windu

“More important in this movie, we get to see Mace Windu as a leader as well as a Jedi.”

“How powerful does a Jedi have to be to jump over a balcony, force land, deflect shots, and not break a sweat?  I think that just tells you how powerful Mace Windu really is.”

Mace Windu:  ********** (10)

C-3PO

“The only upside of C3-PO’s performance is the small amount of comedy interjected by Lucas by putting his head on the body of a war robot and vice-versa where there was some comedy interjected into the movie.”

“I really was just not impressed with this character in this movie.  And if Lucas really thinks these movies are told from their point of view, then we’re missing half the story half of the time in this movie.”

C3-PO:  **** (4)

R2D2

“When talking about Attack of the Clones, I believe that R2D2 has stepped up even further in his role in the Star Wars universe and in my heart.”

“In these scenes we see R2D2 fly, use a mechanical arm and we see him save Padme’s life while in one of the “lava” containters (or at least that’s what I think it is).”

R2D2:  ******* (7)

The Emporer/Chancellor Palpatine

“Of all the “bad guys” in the Star Wars universe, there is one guy who becomes the resident evil man.”

“Again Ian McDiarmid did an amazing job playing this two-faced character.  He seems to sell the character wll and we all are very convinced that Palpatine and the Emporer are running the show.”

Palpatine/Emporer:  ********* (9)

Jar Jar Binks

“Although Jar Jar has a very limited role in this film, I feel I do need to show how George Lucas shows his disdain for Jar Jar by leading him to the biggest mistake by a Star Wars character in a single movie.”

Jar Jar Binks:  *** (3)

 

The List:

Captain Typho:  * (1)

Senator Amidala:  ******* (7)

Anakin Skywalker (teenager):  ********* (9)

Obi-Wan Kenobi:  ********** (10)

Zam Wessel:  ******* (7)

Jango Fett:  ********** (10)

Count Dooku/Darth Tyrannus:  *** (3)

Yoda:  ********** (10)

Kit Fisto:  ********* (9)

Mace Windu:  ********** (10)

C3-PO:  **** (4)

R2D2:  ******* (7)

Palpatine/Emporer:  ********* (9)

Jar Jar Binks:  *** (3)
