: : what do you think of "Attack of the Clones"???
: I ain't Kev, but I can't help but add my two cents - I think it's absolute shite. George Lucas has officially gone senile. First that Great Muppet Caper he called The Phantom Menace, now this. Makes me want to weep.
: 'Attack of the Clones' . . . Christ, even Hershell Gordon Lewis had better titles than that.
Would agree here, felt like upchucking when I saw the title on the Star Wars Homing Beacon. I mean, what the hell? It sounds like Lucas and company argued over a long night of title ideas, and then after consuming lots of tequila, reasoned, "Well, we gotta call it something." One of his people was watching some classically bad B-movie on television, and yelled out, "hey, how about Attack of the Clones?" I'll bet Lucas's reasoning in the years to come on this will be "It sounded like a good idea at the time."
Comments? Kevin, what's your take on it?
