4. “Well my favorite fight was Yoda vs. Dark Sidious. ”

5. “Qui-Gon Jinn suggesting to Obi Wan to go on separate ships was clever.”

    the article can be summed up in one sentence: I’m a purist and think the prequels suck.

    Samuel L is always the right call

    “Star Wars? Oh, I know that one! That’s where the guy with the red shirt always dies, right?!” — Just enough knowledge to try to make yourself seem relate-able on the topic while missing the ball completely.

    I’d be offended by maybe 5 things on the list, the rest I’d agree with or find understandable. Besides, Shaw did need to go. How much weight should an arbitrary Force Ghost who bears no resemblance to the Actor of two movies, who’s appearance is used in a quality show, which will be a large number of kids first Star Wars. Too bad we can’t revive Sebastian Shaw from the dead, use a machine to make him in his 20s and send him back in time to replace Hayden’s acting. :/

      If they replaced Shaw with Christensen, then why wouldn’t they have replaced Guinness with McGreggor? Return of the Jedi is at least 20 years after Return of the Sith…you really think Anakin’s going to look the same? I think he should have stayed.
