# It did and it was brilliantly done

Actually, I don't really care. I don't hold Star Wars sacred. And I agree it was technically done very well but at the same time the character did seem a little out of place within the films as a whole *shrug*

# I think he was as badly scripted and stupidly voiced as most of the comedy characters
C3PO, yoda, ewoks, etc. Never understood why anyone got upset

# I think they could have gotten away with the voice and the script if it wasn't done in completely over the top slapstick style
Some sort of connection with realism. It felt like they just forgot they were making a film and not a cartoon.

I do find it amusing how people get so upset about it though :)

C3PO waving his arms about and going oh dear all the time
"get this walking carpet out my way"
Remind me which Star Wars film is the serious non comedy/slapstick one?

# 'Well I didn;t say there was a serious non comedy/slapstick Star Wars film.
But I think there's a line between a bit silly and overblown over-the-top stupid. And Jar-jar crossed that, that's all I meant.

And I don't even like Star Wars enough to get into a conversation about it! Agh! Sucked in! :D

# I have to get this off my chest
They are fucking KIDS FILMS! The Ewoks, C3PO etc. are badly scripted, slapstick etc. because they are children's characters.

Yeah, I like the films too, I watch them quite often, but you can't expect characters aimed at entertaining children to be deep and meaningful, convincing and non-irritating to adults.

I'm more machine now than man. My mind is twisted and evil.

# Paving the way to CG Yoda?
Not a plus, that is.

George says that the revisions are what he would have done back then if he had the money, we've seen what he would do with the money, and it's severely lacking.
I really, really like the breakdown of Lucas's personal artistic breakdown here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxKtZmQgxrI

Further back he said: "People who alter or destroy works of art and our cultural heritage for profit or as an exercise of power are barbarians, and if the laws of the United States continue to condone this behavior, history will surely classify us as a barbaric society. The preservation of our cultural heritage may not seem to be as politically sensitive an issue as “when life begins” or “when it should be appropriately terminated,” but it is important because it goes to the heart of what sets mankind apart."

He was a genius, now he's a douche.

yeah the fight scenes with Yoda and Sudoku would've been greatly improved if he'd still been a stick puppet . . .
