Star Wars: The Clone Wars

I had the privilege of seeing an advance version of Star Wars: The Clone Wars tonight. I have to say that despite my low expectations, I was disappointed.

First off, there was the not-so-subtle relationship between Anakin and Obi Wan. We all know that George Lucas loves to retcon, but having them become gay lovers was bit much even for those of us who expect Lucas to pull crap out of his butt at every turn.

Secondly, the inclusion of the future ghost of Yoda was just weird. So now were having Time Travel via the Force. Too much! Eject!

Thirdly, using Mace Windu in the naked dancer scene might have stroked the ego of an animated Samuel L. Jackson, but did we really need to go there?

Lastly, the cameo by George Lucas himself pushed this movie over the top into Oz without any shoes to help us come home.

Argh. Too much weirdness was everywhere. This review has been written in response to this news item. See the movie if you want.

    Hmmm… Obi Wan gay.

    That makes the Family Guy interpretation of Star Wars just that much funnier.

    Weird, my link in that last post seems to be formatted without a highlight.

    I do hope you’re kidding. You forgot the sarcasm or irony tag in your post.

    I’d still like to see it with Vicky, but then I was the same guy lined up for 2 hours at “Star Wars: Episode I” when it came out, dragging my poor wife along telling her it’s required of our generation. I tend to gleefully shell out for what George Lucas foists upon us… only to analyze it (and possibly regret) it later.

    “Time-travelling Force Spirits, Mace Windu, and a Cameo? Oh…. and let’s expound on Obi Wan and Anakin some more?”

    You jest, right? …right? =)

    @Ken: Perhaps.
