Liam is awesome and the man.
How did Liam Neeson become an action movie star? Because Liam Neeson wanted to become an action movie star.
I am one of eight people who feel that TPM was the best of the prequels. It, at least, was a full screenplay with four acts. The others had little to no cohesive structure. And while the dialog was bad in TPM, few can deny that it only got progressively worse in the movies that followed.
I think TPM was better than the other 2, but that doesn’t mean I think it’s a quality movie…
I’ve always had a problem seeing what exactly was wrong with the Star Wars prequels. People keep ripping on them, but then it’s not like the originals represent some sort of unattainable ideal of cinematography. Actually, the entire saga was equally cheesy, and while Hayden Christensen is the most godawful actor alive, Harrison Ford ain’t all that much better.
Wow someone who agrees with me. High five!
There is a special corner of hell for people that like the prequels. Nah, I’m just being bitter.
George may be the master of universe creation, but he sure as shit knows nothing about organic dialogue, decent casting and character relation. Sure the originals seem cheesy – it was the 70s and 80s – but without the involvement of the likes of Irvine Kirshner and the like they would’ve been far worse I imagine.
Maybe it’s the nostalgia for the originals but I can’t help but cringe through the prequels.
There are a lot of films and such I’m apparently supposed to hate, including the prequels, and I just don’t. I don’t have a problem with them. They might not be the best but I don’t hate them.
It had some great action scenes. Podracing and that three-way lightsabre duel anyone?
Hurr hurr . . . three-ways . . . heh.
Okay, sorry, it’s random and also spam, but I thought it was funny at the time… and still sort of think it is. Then again I also grinned at Bill Murray’s dying scene in “Zombieland”. My humour knows no respect.
Totally. The lightsaber duel ALONE was enough to make it the best. The giant Jedi battle in Ep2 was almost as good (that’s a LOT of Jedi!) but nowhere did it have the choreography…
Liam Neeson made Phantom Menace bearable, in my opinion.
You people make me sick
Why, because they have an opinion? Heaven forbid someone disagrees with you.
Your opinion angers me! RRRRRAAARRRR!!!
stupidity is a perfect disease because whenever someone trys to find the cure stupidity makes it so it cant happen.
That is because stupidity is limitless.
Even Einstein is sure of that. More sure of that than he was the the universe is infinite.
Liam makes the world go round. Though I wonder if working on TPM gave him Jedi Powers or he has always had that effect on people?
TPM was the better of the three BUT that is like saying gargling with sulfuric acid is better than gargling with nitric acid.
Three syllables says it all… Jar Jar Binks
Besides, everyone Knows Chuck Norris Kicks awesome in the head every time ^_~
Except that gargling with nitric acid would simply turn your throat yellow while sulfuric acid would melt it open. But I’m nitpicking.
I also agree: If Weird Al thinks it’s worth it to write a song about it, it’s not ALL bad. It’s just bad in comparison to towering classics like the original three.
“Nitric acid is a strong acid and a powerful oxidizing agent. The major hazard posed by it is chemical burns as it carries out acid hydrolysis with proteins (amide) and fats (ester) which consequently decomposes living tissue (e.g. skin and flesh).”
Yep. Just turn your throat yellow, that’s all nitric acid would do.
Ya know, I think I’m the only person that liked Jar Jar? Laughing at JJ was the only thing that made the movie bearable.
Of course, I’m also apparently the only person that liked Scrappy-Doo…
You’re not the only one who liked Jar Jar, personally I liked that they added a character who wasn’t graceful, clever or a bad ass pilot ect. And the way he talked was not THAT bad.
Yes it was. It wouldn’t have been that bad if he wasn’t so friggen prominent.
Also yes. Only person who likes Scrappy Doo. You can put that on your resume.
I thought he was okay, but that he didn’t contribute anything by being a major character. Read <a href="http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0001.html"this webcomic, it makes Jar-Jar infinitely more likable.
Being in 6th grade at the time, a full blown star wars kid, I loved it. Say what you will, but for me it was awesome.
You all are completely missing the point. LIAM NEESON MADE IT TRUE!
Everyone knows the RotS was the least shitty of the prequel compost heap.
And that’s only in comparison to the other two piles.
Slightly off topic, and two years too late, but did anyone notice how liam neeson voiced the player’s father in fallout 3? that made my life. I felt bad when he said something in a disappointed tone. It’s like, Liam Neeson is my dad, awesome. But I made him sad. I deserve death.
I considered posting a comment, , then I considered not posting because comment #1 said it all. Then I realized that I’d post anyway, just because there can NEVER be enough Liam Neeson bumping. Also ‘bump’
Liam Neeson: “I’m Aslan.”
He made Ponyo worth buying over Pom poko. I wanted to buy Pom Poko first, but damn Liam Neeson playing a favorite character over Murice Lamarch!
Unfortunately, I couldn’t understand what was so funny about Pom Poko (from not growing up in Japan and, therefore, not understanding the cultural references). However, Ponyo kicked ass and Liam Neeson kicked ass in it as Fujimoto!
i really wish i could go to sleep, but i cant stop reading XC:,both happy and sad at the same time….
Jar Jar is an idiot. He is the whole reason Palpatine got his emergency powers. Then again, if he hadn’t gone to that senate meeting, we probably wouldn’t have the original series.
*Snake voice* “…Time paradox?!”
I thought it was brilliant to have the most hated character in the franchise be the one to cause the rise of the Empire. Pretty much saying, “yeah, we know he’s an idiot and you should hate him.”
I want the Liam Neeson speech from Taken as my voicemail message. Has anyone else ever noticed that the three guys with the most impressive voices in show business have all voiced lions? Neeson/Aslan, Jeremy Irons/Scar, James Earl Jones/Mufasa. Now if only Irons had something to do with Star Wars…
i do. and it’s awesome.
I read that in his voice, the whole thing, even about phantom menace
Aaaaand just announced… STAR WARS EPISODE VII!!!
I loved Liam neeson as qui gon jin
