It made me dizzy as well, but I liked that. I was quite impressed it managed to do that. I'll have to watch it on a big home entertainment type setup sometime. TV just doesn't have the same effect.

It was the motion of the "camera", not the actual motion of the ships, I think made me dizzy.

You mean Mrs. Organa :wink:

I think Luke specifically asked, "your real mother".

Yep. Real mother would mean birth mother. Luke was asking Leia about her birth mother because he knew they were brother and sister. Thus Luke wanted to learn something of his own mother by asking his sister for her insights on the woman. But all Leia knew was a few images and feelings.

yeah, but wasn't that scene written before Lucas decided to rip-off DUNE
some more with the mother dying giving birth to special twins ?

and BULLSHIT, if ANYBODY - including Lucas - thought they were brother and sister and Vader was their daddy in the first movie. Bullshit.

Oh, I'm pretty sure Lucas knew that while making A New Hope. He wanted to make Dune since the beginning.

What he didn't know during the classic trilogy because he HADN'T MADE IT UP YET, was that Yoda knew Chewie, that Anakin once rescued Jabba the Hutt's son (cringe), and he didn't know that it wasn't Yoda trained Obi-Wan trained ANakin, but instead Yoda trained Dooku trained Quigon trained Obi-Wan trained Anakin trained freaky reddish alien chick.

That appeared in no EU novel, if that's what your asking... I'm talking about the great Episode 3, Revenge of the Shit.

(Was the "E" for Ecumenical or Episcopalian again? It's hard to keep those straight. Anyway, with Yoda, it was all about big butts. And hairy. :shock: )

Occupational hazard. :P

And it seemed like more fun than the possibilities with European Union.

And it occurred to me that I had never ever wondered if there is Star Wars slash out there. Han and Chewie is the pairing that probably would come first to mind (Is sex with a hairy alien bestiality according to the Church? Probably depends on whether s/he chews the cud more than swallowing, huh?), but Yoda and Chewie has potential.

Then of course there's always Obi-Wank and Analkin....

(While I still have fond memories of the very first Star Wars, as time has passed I've come to care less and less for the series. Bad scifi, BAD!)

It's more fantasy than sci-fi.... Very little in it that's scientific. Much mysticism too.

Well, that goes for the original trilogy. I suppose it becomes just a tad scientific with all the midichlorians ( :vomit: ) but still...

Yeah ... scientific like KJA gets scientific. (I only know enough about the mediclitorians to share your nausea. ;) )

What was that hydrogen isotope they use for fuel in the Saggy Suns books again ... ekto?

Meaning if you put it into a superheated state you get ... ekto plasma?

Heh, I've seen that before...

And that's just a few of the dozens and dozens of similarities between the two.
