Star Wars Rewatch: Attack Of The Clones

OK, Star Wars fans. quick question:  which movie was worse, Phantom Menace or Attack of the Clones?

See, Menace has the comedic stylings of Jar Jar Binks and obnoxious pre-teen Anakin Skywalker.  Attack has a lot of half-assed romance and obnoxious post-teen Anakin Skywalker.  I’d actually rather see Phantom Menace given the choice.  At least that one had some pod racing.

But hey, we’re not skipping Attack of the Clones.

Daniel Craig’s last outing as James Bond will be out very soon.  Craig wasn’t the first Bond and probably won’t be the last.  But recasting is hardly new.  There have been multiple Batmen, Supermen, and probably a new Wolverine fairly soon.

But what about Indiana Jones, I ask knowing the answer.  Well, see after the cut to find out what one producer thinks.

POJVloK

Movie posters are iconic pieces of art but it is amazing how much the titles and font are part of the visual appeal.  We check out what the posters look like with the text stripped away and only the visual to sell the story.
