Random Thoughts on Attack of the Clones
Thu, May 09, 02 11:12:20 AM EDT
Here are a few random thoughts about the film. They're all spoilers, so avoid them!
The opening scene of the film pans up rather than the typical pan down of all the other movies. You then see Coruscant and dozens of tiny ships flying against the starfield.
In the explosion of Padme's ship, one of the Naboo fighters is knocked off the platform and falls into the clouds.
The red Royal Guards are barely seen. They're only in the background and you'd miss them if you weren't looking.
Zam Wesell actually changes TWICE in the film. Once during the chase and once during her death.
Billboards and ads in Coruscant feature aurebesh font. How long till someone translates them?
There was a suprising amount of skin shown in the Outlander Club considering it's a PG movie. Yes, a thong clad butt jumps out of the crowd at you during the film, as noted by most of the red blooded males in the audience. The club seems more like a sports bar than anything with a droid version of football on big TVs.
Droids are shown replacing the glass in Padme's apartment which Obi-Wan jumped through.
No ship is shown going into hyperspace from the pilot's view. We only see ships departing and arriving. I guess that makes the hyperspace shot in ANH special.
There were strange pronunciations of the names in the film. Dooku is consistently pronounced "doo-koo" rather than "dough-koo". Queen Jamilla is pronounced "jam-ill-uh" rather than "jam-ee-ya" (like a Spanish pronunciation).
Anakin trying to ride both the shaak and the reek looked pretty bad. Very CG.
Obi-Wan is shown disconnecting from the starfighter hyperspace ring on both Geonosis and Kamino.
C-3PO calls Anakin "my Maker" when he sees him for the first time. Thus, he's thanking Darth Vader when he says, "Thank the Maker!" Threepio is also able to move his knees in this film.
R2-D2 is shown going up stairs on Naboo. The crowd cheered when they saw him fly with his rockets.
It was amazing to see the Yoda and the other Jedi take command of the clone troopers in the film. Yoda directly commanded the lead clone trooper who has yellow decorations. There's also a pilot clone trooper who does not have the fin on his helmet. It's rounded like an AT-AT drivers. There's also a tank with a massive gun on it that looks like something from a Godzilla movie.
The superbattledroids are so strong and single minded that they smash other battledroids out of their way to get to the Jedi.
Dooku's speeder is suprisingly fast. He outruns the Gunships and the Geonosian Fighters.
When Yoda first appears Dooku hurls objects at him with the Force. Then he tries lightining. After that fails they resort to lightsabers. Yoda's appearance brought big time cheers from the crowd. Mace Windu's did too.
