Such innocent, hopeful, unblemished children.

I love RW's original observations, though:

quote:
first impression: a nice movie, but it's not exactly star wars..
More impressions:

-Natalie Portman can't act anymore

-I hate the cutesy dinosaur character

-Those underwater scenes look cheesy

-I love the naboo fighter exploding

-Darth Maul looks like a fun fair freak.

Of course, it's just a temporary impression.

They are about to become permanent.

I just take this as a reminder that the teaser and trailer rarely give you an accurate insight into the actual quality of the movie.

Oh Krenim of fifteen years ago, you were such a poor naive fool.

So long ago I posted to it using my original ID.

But, I presume this is the full trailer rather than the initial teaser released before that? Because I have a clear memory of where I was when I downloaded it, in sections from Usenet due to rubbish 56k download speed; but by March 1999 I was living somewhere else (albeit with the same rubbish 56k download speed). Probably 1998.

I do remember the only version of the teaser trailer available online (and from Usenet) was a cam version, with accompanying audience whooping...

Kinda sobering to read Jay's post- I miss his observations.

Glad to see I didn't reply to that thread, so no opinions can come back to haunt me. Weird, though, since I used to post on just about everything back then...

Yes. In fact, it's a bit too weird...
