Most films have signature moments that are most remebered by people, for example:
Titanic had the scene of the two lovers at the front of the boat "flying"
Reserviour Dogs had the men walking down the street to "Little Green Bag"
Jurrassic Park had "Welcome to Jurrassic Park"
Forest Gump had "Mamma always said life was like a box of chocolates"

Even Star Wars had:
"These aren't the droids you're looking for"
"Luke, I am your father!"
And a whole load of other famous scenes and sayings that have been spoofed and quoted for years.

So does Episode II have one?

For me the signature moment in Reservoir Dogs is Mr. Blonde dancing to Gerry Rafferty's "Stuck in the Middle with You" :happy:

No, only memorable movies have memorable signature moments, AOTC isn't memorable.

And who remembers "these aren't the droids you're looking for"
Most people just remember the "I am your father" bit.

And the signature moment for reservoir dogs them walking down the street, but everyone remembers Blonde dancing to steelers wheel.

Well, thanks to those "Yodaman" commercials, I think Yoda igniting his lightsaber will probably be the signature moment.

But I also agree with Wolfwood, there isn't too much that I consider memorable about AOTC. I bought the DVD on the day it was available, fell asleep the first two times I tried to watch it, watched it once all the way through after that. It sat on my shelf unopened for a few weeks, until I just gave it to my dad as a sort of used-Christmas-gift (along with Ep1).

Firstly I suppose that The cutting of the ear moment in Reserviour Dogs is a memorable moment, but I always think of the walking bit.

And I think I have to agree, the Yoda pulling back his cloak and pulling igniting his lightsaber without even touching it is the signature moment of the film.

What about seeing all the millions of clones on Coruscant at the end of the movie. That is very memorable!

PENDO!

I'd like to say the scene where Anakin tells Padme' about him killing the Tuskens, but that's just the most ominous one. I'd go with the wedding at the end, specifically Anakin taking Padme's hand with his cyborg hand.

bigB, what's with your fluctuation in regards to Star Wars? Sometimes you seem completely in love with it, and then other times you seem really critical . . . I'm sure it's no coincidence that the tide rises and falls around the release of LOTR flicks. :p


Wolfy, I should have clarified by citing Steeler's Wheel and not just Rafferty. :)

Ahhh! Caesar discovered my secret!!!! I must fleeeeeee......:eek:

:D

Yeah, there is a slight correlation between LOTR films and the times that I am most critical of Star Wars. Mainly because I am seeing in the LOTR films what I think I should have been seeing in the prequels from the beginning. Not hobbits or elves mind you, but the consistently high caliber performances, engaging plotlines and astounding visuals (although judging from your review of T2T, not everyone feels the same way). The prequels are sometimes a little too formulaic. Of course, all the Star Wars films are, but the formula is starting to wear a little thin, IMO. And I think I am probably the only Star Wars fan in existence who is really getting sick of lightsaber duels.

Fair enough. :)



I'm weird when it comes to these "signature moments", for me there are so many little nuggets in various films that most of the time people would probably look at me and think "huh?" :crazed:

For instance, AOTC. Between Obi and Ani (and Jango with his "ooh-rate so-heap" ) there are so many little things that I love, like Ani's little head nod on the balcony of Coruscant, Obi-Wan's "curious" and tons of other things.

Same with the other films, like ESB. Yes I agree about the "I am your father" thing but I've seen these so many times over the years that those big moments just seem so run-of-the-mill to me. Instead I like to focus on Lando and his "hello, what have we here?" and the rebel cry of "the first transport is away."

I'm gonna agree with Wolfy as far as "I am your father" but I will also add "Use the force, Luke." Between those two, I think it covers the majority of mainstream references . . .

For me the sig moment was on Chapter 41 when we see Mace Windu's boots and hear the horns (BUM BUUUUUUM) as he's walking towards the arena. Goose bump enducing every single time.

I also liked the Tusken confession scene, and the argument with Anakin & Obi-Wan on the Republic Gunship after Padme fell out. Hayden was just awesome.

Oh, I know, its cool.:D
I wasn't even really paying attention to that when I posted though. I always refer to that song by saying "Steeler's Wheel's-"

I'm with BigB on this one though. The more I see other movies and such, the more mediocre Star Wars becomes. Everything seems more interesting than Star Wars now. Star Wars' peak was in the hey-day of POTF2, pre-prequels. Now Star Wars has slipped into this whole Trekkie world, and its...off-putting.

I thought the signature moment of AOTC was the credits.

Ok, well, maybe that was the BEST part. ;)

So what's the signature moment of all those porn flicks you're addicted to? :confused:

Well, the signature moment of all of those usually comes 2 minutes into the movie.

Let's just avoid that discussion topic please Caesar before someone says something that gets them suspended.


As for AOTC, judging on the general-audience-o-meter, the Yoda/Dooku fight appears to be the "signature moment" by a LAAAARGE margin (though it's been a lot harder to find folks who actually saw AOTC compared to TPM & the CT). As for me, I don't have many, and the 1 that first comes to my mind ("We came to rescue you master." "... Good job.") is wasted on the trailer so I equate it there instead of the film! I kinda see the Jedi Starfighter being attacked by Slave I in my mind's eye right now, but that's not even a scene I liked much... maybe that's exactly what would be needed to qualify it as a "signature moment" though.

Definitely the scene when he kills the Tuskens - the exact moment where he first crosses the threshold into the Dark Side.

Funny, I thought it was when he threw his first temper tantrum on Coruscant. Go figure.:sur:
