Well, I think what they were trying to do in the dalek episode is show a dalek for nostalgia purposes, then kill it off so they wouldn't have to do anything dalek-related again.

And then you could destroy their cities with your blaster! Haha yes!  Cool

I like it. Almost as good as dropping a small planetoid into their ocean.

Hmmm, taking over planets...
Might give a point to the "Empire of Zelnick."

Someone needs to mod that in. Grin

I'm just flooding these boards to take focus away from certain flame wars...

Anybody watch the new Dr. Who?  I thought about seeing it when I first saw the adds, then thought against it when it finally came on TV because I was afraid it'd be too stupid, then I ended up watching it and started to enjoy it a bit.  I never saw any of the other Dr. Whos before though.

I just wanted to know what any of you people think about it.

...Anyway, I saw Episode III a week ago.  I had seen the other two as well.

Revenge of the Sith was definitely better than the first two.  The thing is, the movie's probably most enjoyable if you don't take it seriously.  I guess you could treat it as a roller coaster ride.

So yeah, the special effects are awesome.  I must admit that I get a little tired when people complain about the quantity of effects.  I mean, it's a space movie!  If you have a lower tech way of depicting a high tech galactic empire I'd like to hear it.

Oh, and for those who hate Jar Jar: you might be pleased that he has no speaking part in the movie.

And in response to what monkydang said a while ago about how we would've liked the prequel movies better in the 70s; I can see a point in that.  I mean, it could be argued that Lucas used muppets and cardboard ships as much as he's using computer graphics now.  I wonder what life would be like if the Star Wars movies were made and released in chronological order?  Would Jar Jar have become a beloved pop figure, while Chewbacca became the annoying freak? Huh

P.S. As far as special effects laden epic trilogies go, I thought Lord of the Rings was better anyway. Roll Eyes
