Star Wars 3-D...Really?!?

Does the Star Wars Saga really need to be converted to 3-D?

Well after several days and several heated arguments later we have come up with a list of cons and well, only one pro.

For the Pro, we see an opportunity to expose a new generation to Star Wars on a bigger scale; and we feel that everyone should see the entire saga at least once on the big screen.

As far as Cons go...

1. 3-D glasses are uncomfortable to those that already wear glasses.

2. Not every theater is equipped for 3-D, nor do people own 3-D televisions when they get ready to do the DVD and Blue-Ray releases.

3. With every new release something changes, and the statement "Change Is Good" is usually far from the truth when concerning the Star Wars Saga.

There may be only one pro and several cons, but let's face it, when it comes to Star Wars, we will find a reason to go and watch, even if the entire saga was redone with Japanese actors and we had to read subtitles. - GJ

If We Ever Get...

If we ever get a live action version of the hit cartoon series BATMAN BEYOND, who would you like to see play Terry McGinnis the future Batman?

In some cases when a cartoon is done the voice actor may have a similar appearance to the character that they voice; but not so much in this case. Don't get us wrong, Will Friedle did a great job voicing Terry McGinnis (and who didn't like him on Boy Meets World?), but he just doesn't look like Terry.

Sadly Terry McGinnis looks a little like Keanu Reeves and Reeves would have been a good cast for this role, but only if he was cast about twenty years ago.

So as we hold our breaths and wait patiently for DC to realize that this is the route they need to take with Batman, we ask you, who would you like to see play Terry McGinnis?

After Thought
If by chance this could happen soon, and again, holding our breaths, wouldn't you all like to see Adam West play an older Bruce Wayne?

Star Wars - The Old Republic #3 (Comic)

In Star Wars: The Old Republic Issue #3 we get the conclusion for the Threat of Peace story arc. Needless to say, it could have been better.

It's always interesting to see a Jedi walking the fine line between the light and dark side, and it's even better when that Jedi happens to be a master. The problem here though, the master in question was nothing more than a fried corpse after issue one, yet makes a miraculous appearance here in issue three with no attempt to explain how this trick was done.

Keeping with a really disappointing aspect of this series so far, when this master dies again, it's from a simple punch to the head, nothing more. Maybe Hollywood has destroyed our view on how much it takes to actually kill someone, even if they are Jedi and Sith; all we know is this series has yet to live up to the epic encounters we have come to know and love.

Old Republic is still only in its infancy (being just three issues in), and issue four is giving us a new story arc that will be dominated by Sith, so we're still prepared to hang in there for the long haul, are you?
