OK, the 4th O made me laugh.

That fourth "O" is pretty hot.

The sixth "O" is actually funny.

Mudpuppie:

Much like "All Your Base" and / or Mahir, "You're The Man Now, Dog" sites are a webmeme that Will. Not. Die.

Google ytmnd, or spend a little time on ytmnd.com and you'll get it.

Or not.

So, in this new movie that's hot with all the kids these days, Darth Vader says "Noooooo"? Am I on to something?

www.yourethemannowdog.com is still probably my favorite website ever. For those mercifully unaware, it's derived from a horrible line in the movie Finding Forrester, which stars Sean Connery as a crusty author (?) who teaches a poor black kid about writing. Or something, I don't remember the plot. Just the inane moment where Sean Connery ACTUALLY SAYS "you're the man now dog!"

You know, I've heard the saying "you're the man now dog" hundreds of times without knowing it's origin. I've even said it myself before.

I don't hear anything. They look funny, though.

Are these some of them there IE only sites I keep hearing about?

I'm using Firefox BTW.

That scene in the movie was excruciating. It quite nearly ruined the entire movie for me.

So, Darth Vader, you've betrayed everything you've ever known or believed in, and you've been fully consumed both physically and spiritually by the Dark Side (tm).

I know, why don't you scream in a heavily cliched style?

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Someone should have told Lucas what a stupid fuck he was/is and stopped him from putting that scene in the movie.

I wish to slap Lucas around with a large trout. He got so much right with that movie. How could anyone let him get away with completely ruining what's arguably the single most important scene in THE ENTIRE SERIES!?

My one consolation is that he could fix it just by redubbing a couple bits both spoken by characters whose mouths we cannot see. This would make the ADR a cinch. So maybe if he notices EVERYONE IN THE WORLD mocking Vader's "noooooo," it's not too late to change it for the DVD.

Email from a friend:

"The thing that occurred to me this evening is that Lucas has so eviscerated his legacy, I think Star Wars will have been forgotten in 20 years. This would have been _inconceivable_ to me in 1978. I mean, I haven't seen it yet, but I gather that it possesses at least some aspects of deep suckiness. And I and II were frickin' laughable. Terrible. So the man that made a movie that spoke to a generation in ways not seen since The Tales of Sinbad made three steaming piles of bantha dung. Never has someone blown his or her cultural significance so badly, so swiftly.

Wait, no, I take that back. The Wachowski brothers blew their cultural cache in record time with the woefully lame Matrix III."

Do you think he wrote out all the Os in the script?

The Devious Snidely Grievous might have made the movie worthwhile.

I'd say the movie was ruined for me about 5 minutes into it. The horrible "NNOOOOOO!" scene was just the diarrhea icing on the shit cupcake.

These YTMND.com sites are great, though.
posted by emptybowl at 8:04 PM on June 2, 2005


So people were actually surprised that a scene from Star Wars seemed cheesy and unreal? C'mon, the movie is about giant lizards and cyborgs that use lightsabers. Plot and acting are, and always have been, secondary.

Yeah, and Luke's "Nooooooo!" ruined Empire too, right?
posted by muckster at 8:39 PM on June 2, 2005


Plot and acting are, and always have been, secondary.

Which is fine when they're structured as dumb cliffhanger action movies with a little myth for padding. When they're supposed to be epic dramas with loads of political intrigue and a tragic character arc, plot and acting wind up mattering quite a bit.

A LOW GROAN emanates from Vader's mask. Suddenly everything in the room begins to implode, including some of the DROIDS.

DARTH VADER: I couldn't have! She was alive! I felt her! She was alive! It's impossible! No!!!

For whatever it's worth, I get no sound on any of these, either. (Firefox; Mac 10.3.9.)

Not that I have a particular need to be reminded of the most overwrought moment in cinema of the last decade, but still....

[E]pic dramas with loads of political intrigue and a tragic character arc? Are we watching the same Star Wars? Haven't you noticed how the opening text is written to appeal to little kids?

on a somewhat related note:
i knew that your friend's name looked familiar and so i clicked around her site and found this, which lead to finding this.

i cannot even tell you how many hours i spent playing these games in the rutgers student center when i should have been doing work.

i haven't tried to run these on windows xp yet, but i can pretty much guarantee that if i do get them up and running, my plans to work on grading the stack of students' papers on my desk will go to shit right quick.

I think I'm the only person alive who didn't find that scene particularly "cheesy", "overwrought", or "ruining to the movie". I thought it sounded like exactly what Hayden as Anakin would do in his own voice if he still had it (only with raw emotion and angst to inflect it). It just so happened that his voice was the rather emotionless James Earl Jones at the time. He can't exactly control how his mechanically-enabled voice is able to express what he's feeling, can he?

Not sure what the point of this post was, but then I haven't seen Episode 3 yet.
posted by salmacis at 1:11 AM on June 3, 2005


Midnightblue, have you seen this Futurama episode, where Calculon shows off his acting chops in a clip from All My Circuits? That's really what does it for me. Having seen that clip several years ago, there's no way I could get through the Vader scene without stifling a laugh.

There's an audio clip here, #8. Anybody have video?
posted by Galvatron at 2:05 AM on June 3, 2005


Midnightblue. No, you're not the only one. I thought the 'Nooo!' could've gone on a few seconds longer in fact ;-)

I've said it before and it bears repeating - the added bonus of EPs I-III has been the equally epic amount of nerd-froth that has been spat forth against, well, almost everything to do with everything about all six movies. Intentional or not, Lucas knows how to push the buttons of people who...well, let's face it, aren't exactly contributing massively to the flowing cultural fabric of the world...or something...
posted by i_cola at 3:08 AM on June 3, 2005


I think the only real problem with the I-III is they where too complex in comparison with IV-VI. (I say this as a fan of complex movies)
Star Wars was never about good acting. It was basic mythology with cool special effects. Basic mythology means, BASIC. I-III tried to pack too much extraneous stuff, and changed how some key supporting figures behaved (i.e. Yoda and R2D2), no wonder people bitch about it.

This is fucking hilarious. Me and my wife went to see EpIII last week and we both laughed out loud in the cinema at the Frankenstein scene. No, we didn't like the film. We've just watched all these links and we've spent the past five minutes laughing uncontrollably after the rollercoaster one. Genius.
