    Angry Do you like the new title?

    Star Wars Episode 2 Attack of the Clones is a fine Star Wars title, much better than Jar Jar gets a nipple piercing and starts a CLONE WAR

    i hate it!

    honestly.. i think with all the creativity in the SW universe and skywalker ranch, u would think they could come up with a better name.

    "attack of the clones" seems pretty lame, why not call it episode 2 th second movie......

    Whenever Ithink Of Attack of the Clones, I think of a 1950's horror movie, I just keep seeing this giant blob and this huge squiggly yellow writing. So no I don't like the new title

    I absolutely hate the new title. it sounds like a '50 B movie. I don't like star wars for the names of the movies, I like star wars for the story the movies tell and I'm pretty sure everybody here likes star wars for the same reason.

    As I've said a million times before, I like the new title; but I agree with The Master Jedi, the title's not important, the story is.

    Judging JUST the title, I don't like it. I don't know how the movie will be, but this title sucks IMO because "Attack of the ____" is a cliche' and a joke based on dozens of cruddy sci-fi/horror flicks from the '50s. If it was "Onslaught of the Clones", "The Clone Attack", "Battle of the Clones", even "Curse of the Dopplegangers", I wouldn't mind so much. Ok, maybe on that last one, I might. But how about "Dawn of the Clones"? That one (it's not mine, I just saw it in a post) seems 100 times better AND just as accurate, yet still "harkening back to the days of serials, when George Lucas could go to the movies all day for a nickel" or something.

    C'mon JT, the title could have been anything....

    I know you don't like it, but I have to be honest - it is growing on me.

    You may like to mention any references to 50s movies with similar titles - I comend JL with the conviction to continue the series with such pretentious film titles.

    I am actually beginning to believe that "Attack of the Clones" falls rather nicely into the whole proceedings...

    C'mon "The Empire Strikes Back"...... no sublety there.

    The title is really lame, not that there is anything wrong with that. Everybody will just call it Episode 2 anyways.

    I don't think you understood what I was saying BenQuad, I don't give a flying fart if the title is accurate, subtle, mysterious, or even poetic, the term "Attack of the ____" is a JOKE in our society, that's what bothers me. Lucas isn't the only one to have seen a serial or two, there are TONS of titles that don't lend themselves to such a twist of meanings as to now be almost totally a comical play off the very titles. My point is, he didn't name this film "Star Wars: Ben & Anakin's Excellent Adventure" or "Star Wars: The Far-Out Adventures of Groovy Starkiller" because those are obviously silly, but "Attack of the Clones" sounds just as silly IMO as either of those. Look at all the non-Star Wars listings on Alta Vista under the PHRASE ""attack of the"", at least 43,000 of those are for-sure not based on the new Star Wars film:
    • "Attack of the Anime Toys!"
    • "Seattle Weekly - news: Attack of the 150-foot planners"
    • "National Review: Attack of the Wealth-Eaters: 'Like flies to meat they come!'."
    • "PETA: Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!" (not based on the film of the same name, which was in of itself a mockery of this very title and genre)
    • "Attack of the Y2K Bug Screensaver at Rhode Island Soft Systems"
    • "Attack of the Killer Weeds - California"
    • "Attack of the Killer Links from CyberSpace - Web Resources"
    • "Sioux City: Attack of the Indoor Football League"
    • "CNN - Hollywood horror: Attack of the bad scripts - July 8, 1997"
    • "Attack of the Straws"
    • "Ironminds: Attack of the Sissy Cyberterrorists"
    • "Switch - Attack of the CyberFeminists"
    • "Attack of the Killer Audio Ads: Part II"
    • "Attack of the Never-Ending Paragraphs -- Rants -- The Commons -- Nuketown"
    • "DevShed - The JSP Files (part 2): Attack Of The Killer Fortune Cookies"
    • "COVER STORIES:ATTACK OF THE DATA MINERS High-water pants alert!"
    • "Attack of the Bad Query Letter - Suite101.com"
    ... and on and on and on, ad nauseum! This is what the name "Star Wars" is now going to be associated with, and that's what bugs me about the title.
