Star Wars in 3D "My don't know..."

Friends, you and I, both well-informed Star Wars fans, know that the Lucasfilm camp has been talking about 3D on and off for several years now (maybe something close to a decade, I'll have to check with Mr. McCallum), so we all know that converting the films isn't just Lucasfilm jumping on the coattails of the success of James Cameron's Avatar.

Now, some people may like 3D, some don't, and some people just don't care. I (who is not exactly sure when was the last time he saw a 3D movie, and can't really think of a good reason why he didn't see Toy Story 3 in 3D) don't mind 3D, but I'm eager to see how The Saga looks after the conversion.

But, as you may have heard, whenever the notorious GL lights a fire of excitement, some people want to bust the dam and wipeout the village in the valley below just to put it out. And, as a notorious Lucasfilm-apologist, I was dismayed by the negative opinions.

I was even more dismayed when this happened. Yes, John Hudson of theatlanticwire.com, in what seemed to be a fair and balanced article about the schism in the Star Wars community about the 3D announcement had to, just had to take a shot at the favorite Prequel-Era Wiping Boy, Jar-Jar Binks.

Lastly, commenter Wiktor_Beviin made a diplomatic request most fans could likely agree on. Since Lucas is rereleasing the film anyway, "can you take Jarjar out at the same time?"


C'mon, man. You're better than that.

Then again, maybe you're not?

MTV, Salon (as far as I'm concerned, the only person at Salon who is qualified to write about Star Wars is Camille Paglia), and Reuters have entirely focused on the negative reactions of the same a-holes who have dominated internet blather about Star Wars over the past 13 years. They've never given a damn about the rest of us and most other SW fans are either too intimidated or too apathetic to speak up.
I know. One of the people on my facebook F-list was like being all whiney and lucas bashy about it. I left a comment about how i thought it was a cool idea.
Don't people have anything else to whine about?
