screw the status quo. we need change and we need it now. we need not a leader who plays with words and public funds. we need not a leader whose years of service fall under the 'fiction' category. we definitely need not a leader who knows nothing. we require a leader who has conviction, who has the guts to change the seemingly unchangeable. we need... to prepare for 2007. Now.

Star Wars Prerequisites

Before you go to the cinema to watch the last Star Wars movie of George Lucas, you should watch these first! (And we're so lucky they're all available on the internet...)


1. George Lucas in Love (http://www.milkandcookies.com/links/30395/)

I love watching parodies, specially this one. Just when I'm in the mood to write an epic movie about love... *sigh* Anyway, description says "A young George Lucas fights writer's block while trying to complete his final screenplay for USC Film School. This satire of Star Wars and Shakespeare in Love has Lucas searching for the true origins of the Star Wars saga."

2. The Clone Wars Microseries (http://www.starwars.com/clonewars)

Anakin is already a Jedi Knight in "Revenge of the Sith"? But how?!?! Know more about the story in between Episodes II and III here. Powerful in Episode 23 Yoda is... hrmmmm....

3. Star Wars Episode II (Attack of the Clones) and Star Wars Episode I (The Phantom Menace)

Who's Qui-gon Jin? Who's Princess Padme? What's a Coruscant? Duuuuh...

4. Star Wars Fan Films (http://www.atomfilms.com/af/spotlight/collections/starwars/)

They make fun of Star Wars, whereas Star Wars is their life. Ahh... life is a comedy, indeed.

5. Star Wars: Jedi Academy, Star Wars: Outcast, Star Wars: Battlefront, Star Wars: Clone Wars, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic I and II...

And you just can't get enough of Star Wars. It's not enough that you've watched the flicks... now you want to play with the Force. I feel much fear in you... tee hee hee...

6. New Worlds Episode III (http://www.newworlds.ph)

Yeees... you don't want to be alone in the universe. Meet your fellow woids in the New Worlds convention that's gonna happen on Monday in Makati. Lurk in the shadows there, I will. ;-p

Katie..here are some additional Star Wars stuff...

Labyrinth of Evil by James Luceno - an episode 3 prequel novel. It narrates how the chancellor got kidnapped along with background info on General Grievous and Count Dooku.

Revenge of the Sith by Matthew Stover - an adaptation of the movie/screenplay. Extra details for those who have plenty of questions about the movie.

They said you have to read the Star Wars Novels before a person can watched the Star Wars Movies. In order for that person to understand the whole Saga.

I am not a fun of Star Wars. So, I couldn't tell you about the story line.

hey geedot,

yah! i heard the book tells more about (warning: SPOILER) how Qui-Gon Jin discovered the new Jedi power to make your presence felt even if a Jedi is already dead- the reason why Obi-Wan still kept on bugging Luke Skywalker about using the Force in episode 4, even though he was already "killed" by Darth Vadah (Vader. Vader. Damn Sidius accent. teeheehee....)

I went to the movies with one of my aunts who just love the old Star Wars trilogy. She said, finally, George Lucas was able to connect the story between the new Star Wars saga to the old one. So many questions about the old trilogy are answered also in Episode III. :)

"..." - Jar Jar (just the way we like it"
