Star Wars Episode III Teaser Trailer

Pop quiz this morning...After watching the Episode III teaser on hyperspace Niubniub

1) Drooled all over his keyboard and cried when he couldn't find kleenex to wipe the spit of the keys

2) Watched it over and over again, like say....12 times.

3) Then started looking Frame by Frame, checking out all the tiniest details

Well, if you know me by now, you know it's ALL OF THE ABOVE - LOL. I am sure the pattern repeats itself with many of you reading this. C'mon, admit it !!! - LOL. These trailers really know how to do the trick... get us all excited for the movie. I just PRAY that the tone of the film is serious like Empire was and not CHILDISH like Episode I. (which I liked but jar Jar and jake Lloyd do NOT compare to Han, luke and Leia.)

I LOVED the space battle, Padme's Leia hairdo, Emperor's EVIL look, Vader in chains, Anakin's Darth Maul Eyes, 3P0 on the tantive IV, Chebacca's Roar :), Padme all sad and frightened, The Lava world. man this movie has no reason to NOT be the best of the prequels. How many days until may next year? :P

Well before bed, I wanted to upload Princess Leia's Plans to the 2004 design of NiubNiub's Diorama Making Of section. It's great fun for me to look back at the step by step pics.

Well yes, the summer is over and it's cold as hell outside - especially biking to work at 8:30 in the morning LOL. Just a matter of days before the first snowfall :( Nooooooo - LOL. Another 4 months on Hoth when I was hoping for Tatooine :P

The good thing about winter is that there are still great (and no so great) movies that come out this time of year. Of course many of you have seen The Incredibles by now. I guess the important question is "How many times?" LOL. Also uploaded are long overdue Resident Evil 2 and the latest horror terror The Grudge reviews.

Head on over to NiubNiub's Summer Movie Reviews to read my 2 cents worth and if I think you should spend your hard earned dollars on these gems :)

Remember, at the bottom of every review are interactive boxes for you to add your name so that the entire planet can see what YOU thought of the movie. Your participation is what makes this section fun. I'm off to see Incredibles again :P - well I wish I could, but I think I will be stuck L-O-N-G hours at work until delivery on December 01. have a great day. Happy movies !!!
