I thought it was bad enough when on the re-release of "A NEW HOPE" that Greedo shot at Solo before Solo shot him (in original Solo just blasted him). But this new Episode II is really busting my chops...I mean in all the books in the original movies they talk about the "CLONE WARS" but Episode II is called "ATTACK OF THE CLONES" What is the word "WAR" so un PC that they wont use it in a title...Attack of the clones instantly makes me associate it with "ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES"

Actually, I have both sets (original boxed set, and the "enhanced"), Greedo's weapon in the original DOES go off, after Solo blasts him. Gotta agree with the CLONE WARS sentiment. Don Out

yeah it goes off but this time they make it look like he shoots "FIRST"....in the book Solo blasts ...no big loss

Next thing, they'll have Vader asking Obi-Wan to forgive him before Vader cuts him down (DVD release).

I think they used "Attack of the clones" because it sounds more appealing to children than "Clone wars". I just know that after watching that dumb-ass Jar Jar Binks for two hours in the last movie, I'll never see another Star Wars prequel.

They should have offered a 'JarJar Free' version on the DVD. Send in the Clones... There has to be Clones... Don't bother, they're here.

The appalling thing is that you think anything to do with "Star Wars" is important. Get a life.

Theeesa post veerrrrry bombad...

the title is fine and fits a trilogy pattern. The Empire Strikes Back Attack Of The Clones same basic idea. yes in the books they refered to it as the clone wars. so what? the books are not a canon source and can be ignored at lucas will.

i agree that "attack of the clones" is a stupid name, but its not like Star Wars is going to change is title. "Attacks in the Stars"[:D]
Link Posted: 11/15/2001 1:44:41 PM EST
Also i dont thing they could call it "clone wars" without it sounding stupid too. Star Wars: Clone Wars. sounds too repetative.

Yes, it's true, Golgo-13 is above relaxing, trivial discussions. But he can post in this thread to ridicule. "Centuwian, stwike him vewy woughwy!" "And um, throw 'im to the floor, sir?" "Oh Yes, Thwow him to the fwoor!" [rolleyes] Don Out

I find it relaxing to tweak you gentlemen on this topic. C'mon, admit it... You're so wrapped up in this stuff that you actually think Carrie Fisher is a babe. You know the names of minor characters as well as major ones. You still wear "Star Wars" jammies with the feet in them. The first time you picked up a laser pointer you waved it around and made "light saber" noises. You kept all your Star Wars action figures because you still play with them. You say "May the Force be with you" and mean it. When you see a Mauser C96, the first thing you think of is Han Solo. You enjoy even the cutsiest, most suck-ass aspects of the movies (e.g. Ewoks, Jar-Jar). I know as much as I do about the movies because I have a 6 year old who watches them on video and has the toys. I expect he'll grow out of it and develop an interest in women, the outdoors, cars, guns, and so forth in the fullness of time. You guys will, too, after puberty.

Um, no. I have those interests too. I have also had time to watch many movies during my recovery from knee surgery (and read many books) while unable to fully enjoy the outdoors.[:D] As far as SW toys, don't have any (since the first movie came out, anyway), my first thought about the laser pointer was "How can I mount this to a rifle and activate it when taking up the slack?" You Funny round-eye!!! You numba one, I choose you!

Maybe, but I don't watch TV much except for FoxNews Channel and the History Channel. OTOH, I think that "Puff The Magic Dragon" would handle both-"Where do ya want it?" "Put in on the camp."
