    1. Yeah CG has definitely gotten better in the last couple of years. I practically throw up everytime I see a picture of that awful cgi yoda from attack of the clones

    6. Yeah... No. That CGI still lacks credibility. You can still clearly see it's fake. I pray none of that is in Star Wars. Hopefully practical effects rule the day.

    7. well you can still clearly see it's fake because it's a green talking frog lol. But yeah hopefully practical effects are where they're going. They will always be better

  2. Nute Gunray got more votes than Admiral Piet!? It's like pitting the beatles against bieber. I despair, I despair. This is like last year when it was Leia vs Padme. Leia obviously being the clear winner by a mile, yet she literally only won by a few percentage of the vote.. Really I have no idea what films these voters watched but it wasn't the films I watched that's for sure ha.

    1. What!? Piett was winning by a landslide when I looked... Poor Mon Mothma though, nobody cares about her. Including me. The choices between Jedi is pretty limited, but I hope Liam Neeson with a beard beats Samuel L. Jackson acting boring

    2. anon march 11... at 11:20,

      maybe some people wanted to vote for a female character that didn't spend the last installment of her story running around in a golden bikini. I'm sorry, I like Padme Amidala better. If you watch the deleted scenes from ROTS, she even established the core of the rebel alliance (including Mon Mothma.)

      What the absolute fuck? Out of three entire films, you focus on the fact that she spent the first act in the third film in the bikini? Who cares? It was Jabba's slave outfit. That has absolutely nothing to do with the better character between Leia and Padme. Anyway, Padme worse frilly and showcasing outfits all the time. Leia never worse anything revealing, just the slave outfit Leia is amazing. She backtalked vader and tarkin when everyone else, even the people who worked for the empire, were afraid of them. She was the character that was saved from excecution in the death star, and she actually seemed pissed off about it! What a badass! Then she grabbed luke's gun shouting "somebody has to save our skins!", then later insulted the ship that the heroes came to rescue her on. She was amazing and totally ahead of her time when it comes to female characters who were, and still are, like padme who are only there to be the love interest and look hot in about a hundred different outfits. Who cares that she actually did something in some deleted scenes? Oh what, that makes her a hero? She's therefore much better than 3 entire films of Leia being a badass and outwitting, outshooting, and outsmarting everyone else, just because of a few deleted scenes with Padme in one of the prequels, and the fact that Leia had to be Jabbas sex object. You even dare and think to blame and shame Leia for that? This wasn't her choice you stuck-up-half-witted scruffy looking nerfherder (Leia also had far superior and iconic dialogue than Padme-"It's-only-because-I'm-so-In-love-Amidala.. Padme's only good quote was "so this is how liberty dies. with thunderous applause", that's literally it to be honest.), Anyway, so yes her being Jabbas sex object has nothing to do with Leia as a character, unlike Padmes choice to wear revealing clothes all the time and parading around Anakin when she's whining all the time about how she cant go out with him because she's a senator.. as though that's some sort of reason.. Leia tried to rescue Han via a disguise, not the bikini, Leia then proceeds to strangle Jabba (An enourmous slug) to death single-handedly. Leia is an amazing character. You seriously pick one of the most influential female heroes of all time over friggin Padme-boring-dull-unoriginal-love-interest-"it's-only-because-i'm-so-in-love"-Amidala !? Padme is just a rehash of Leia and done badly. They took Leia, took away all the grit and attitude and humanity, then just dolled her up in a different outfit in every single scene, then gave her a gun in attack of the clones to make idiots think that her character is a baddas.

      ...Oh.. dear.. god. Everyone should be allowed their opinion but it's like when people say they prefer Twilight to Star Wars.. I mean.. I just.. Please be a troll, please be a troll, please be a troll. Surely nobodies opinion could possibly be that stunted and warped
