    We watched Star Wars Episode 2 Attack of the clones
    last night for the first time.

    Was i ever disspointed with the acting , particularly that guy
    who played Anakin. How on earth did he get the job.

    I wasnt overly impressed with Ewan's acting either.

    I didnt rate the film any where near as good as episode 1.

    But the action sequences and sound score made up for it.

    Would i be correct in saying that the early star wars movies
    havnt been released on DVD yet ?

    but i don't think you watch the star wars movies expecting to see oscar worthy acting performances,take into account that most of the time the actors are just playing in front of a green screen.

    "I HATE THEM!"

    That bit was pretty good. :D

    You know something's up when the digital characters start out-acting the real ones...

    P.S. Portman can do no wrong, of course. :cool:

    if i was an actor earning huge amounts of dosh,
    i think dancing in front of a blue screen would be one
    of the reasons whilst i earn so much money, because
    someone somewhere clearly thinks im good at it.

    If you've ever watched the making of documentaries you would see just how difficult a job it is for the actors to act with nothing. Ewan McGregor is a fantastic actor but is wooden as a plank in Star Wars. He did the best he could. Likewise, as a relative newcomer Hayden Christiansen should be given credit for pulling off a performance every bit as good as Ewans. Don't blame the actors, blame old fatneck himself - he couldn't direct a mini into a empty field.

    No. I agree with you about the difficulties in acting for Lucas but that plonker couldn't act his way out of a paper bag. Just look at his scenes with Natalie Portman. I'm not sure whether to describe them as woeful or hilarious.

    :( :(

    He used to have the nack....watch American Graffiti and see some beautiful and subtle performances with proper characterisation and heart. I think once he became rich enough to be able to control every aspect of film-making without the pressure of studio interference (after the release of 'empire') he just surrounded himself with 'yes' men and got his own way. This in itself is good for George but unfortunately not for us. He no longer has to fight hard for anything and that reflects in his filmmaking:(
    The slide is evident I think in Return of the Jedi with wooden performances throughout....ANH & Empire have some decent 'naturalistic' acting IMHO considering the dialogue they had to say.
    Also, despite me being a John Williams fan, I think he lost it about the same time as Lucas.....witness his A+ 'Empire' score and then compare to anything subsequently. Is it coincidence that the new Star Wars trilogy is not as great?? I don't think so.

    I think that George's mind has gone - did he think that no-one would think he was a bit pervy for putting Portman in the overly tight basque in Ep II - as designed by none other than fatneck himself?

    I'm not saying that I didn't enjoy it :smashin: , I'd like to have the opportunity to squeeze her into the outfit meself :devil: , but then I ain't old enough to be her grandad!

    U obviously havent heard John Williams score for Born on the Fourth of July which is classic cinema or his score for Presumed Innocent which was very subtle or Schindlers List or even Jurassic Park i totally disagree with wot u say and thought The Phantom Menace score was excellent although Attack of the Clones was a lazy score at times, and Empire of The Sun ? sheeesh man it was a very overblown music score which didnt fit the film well at all

    Course, the Lord of the Rings actors did lots of blue screen, and made an EXCELLENT job of it - maybe its a better director, or better actors, or both and other things to boot!!!
