Man this forum is so dead... My hilarious picture I posted here A YEAR AGO only got 8 views. 8 freaking views!

Anyhow time for my *annual* star wars round-up... Not much happening...

EA's new Star Wars MMOG costs $80M
Unfortunately it's 20 years too late

Star Wars released on Blu-Ray.
But who cares anymore... The first two films were good, but life has moved on...

A film "The people versus George Lucas".
But we've talked this subject matter to death in these forums...

Live Action TV Series looks like it will never happen
I've heard this story once too many times. By this stage if it ever did go to air I couldn't be bothered.

Toy Commercials
Clone Wars TV ads show I mean series still going. Explains the continued presence of shitty plastic toys in toy stores.

Googling around the News there is very little Star Wars happening these days.
The odd episode of Robot Chicken is the only funny thing that still happens.

Lots of web pages like this with alienated fans moving on...


It has been said that all good things must come to an end and those words throughout the ages have always been proven true. The best one can hope for is when something “good” approaches its end, it gets the chance to go out in a blaze of glory. Sometimes things work out that way. Often something “good” slowly starts to degrade. It leaves the rest of us with no other recourse other than to stand around its proverbial death bed and watch its flame finally extinguish as nothing but a shell of its former self.

As a life long Star Wars fanatic I had to face the facts and finally say the words. STAR WARS IS DEAD, AND MY OBSESSION HAS DIED WITH IT.


My this forum is so dead. Well forums everywhere are dead. We're all too busy trying to make 50,000 friends on Facebook.

Kudos to Chef-Elf for keeping this site open anyway. I'm interested to see how long it goes...

Whatever happened to forum member Bond? We miss you... Sorry whoever that guy was threw a banana-attack at you. He tied to blame your exuberant posts as the cause for Star Wars falling popularity, but I think now George's prequel train wreck may have had more to do with it. Too bad Bond. When you left, it started to go downhill. I could keep going as long as someone said 'HEY! GREAT POST!'

See you all next year! Assumes Chef Elf doesn't send us to the big VHS cabinet in the sky.

Hey Inception was pretty cool though. Far cooler than anything George has done for the last thirty years. Here is an idea. Watch new things?

I don't know how it is in the US, maybe the 3D clone wars toons are still going? Here in Europe Star Wars is pretty dead at the moment. The old trilogy created it, and there were quite a few good computer games over the years but recently most of the material has been cheap. Gennedy Tartakovskys 2D Clone Wars is the last thing I found enjoyment in.

The movies are meant to be released in 3D soon I understand. Maybe that will generate some new interest around Star Wars.

Yes, George is a one hit wonder, isn't he (well that and Raiders, so perhaps a two hit wonder...)

I watched Kick Ass the other night. Awesome movie (not a kids movie). It was refreshing to see new themes, new characters and an original story. I don't need to see the Star Wars movie yet again.

The live action TV series got the axe? Oh well it might have been interesting how that turned out. I ceased to be a Star Wars fan in 2005, as I had said I would be after I saw the whole series in one big marathon to mark the end of what had been a childhood fascination (mostly in the realm of my imagination, since I never had any toys, comics, memorabilia or anything of the sort besides the movies, video games, and one Junior Jedi Knights novel).

Also let's not forget that people can't stay mad at something forever and keep on ripping at it forever, no matter how bad it is. Eventually we all gotta move on to something else.

I'm not going to get excited about anything Star Wars-related until the theatrical versions of the original movies get a proper restoration and release on DVD - and we all know not to hold our breath waiting on that.

If you're after a bit of lively discussion, Toru-Chan, I'd suggest you check out the Movie Theater section of the forums. While these forums are definitely on their last legs, there's a little spark of life there and we have had some fun discussions recently - so you're more than welcome to join in.
