who needs TV with such classic online-comedy?

Quick, look for a Memo-save or a quick-save function.

Just having a giggle.  I'll stop tangenting now, I promise.


Richard sits atop a throne of skulls. Wispy notes displaying the letters ‘T.P.K’ flutter around him as he surveys the corpse-riddled landscape. And as he sips blood from his bone-chalice he thinks to himself, “I don't think my games are deadly enough.”

I was never a Chuck fan, I preferred Clint and da Schwarzenegger... but to each their own :)

 

In any case, not to get too far OT I don't remember seeing any of these guys in any of the SW films or anything quite like these types of moments. The SW films have a somewhat different feel to them then Spaghetti Westerns and 80's Action Hero films, there are heroic action scenes but without quite that over the top feel. The only scene I can think of is* maybe when Luke confronts Jabba in ROJ warning things will go bad for him if he doesn't let Han and Leia go, but then he gets dropped into the Rancor pit. Even when he does go off later on the air yachts it's still a bit frantic and you're not a 100% sure it's going to work out perfect. Not quite the same pay off as Chuck gunning down everyone in sight.

The Star Wars films are heroic, magical fantasies but they're still firmly placed in the real world as far as actions and consequences go. This IMO is what makes them so exciting, the bad guys will get their comeuppance but it's always touch and go for the heroes and every triumph comes with a sacrifice. I think if you loose this, if you go the Action Hero (al la Chuck & da Schwartz) or even too far into the Clint style you loose something of the SW feel, it's charm. Those guy's films had a lot of great things but they were never charming (Okay Kindergarten Cop was a little charming...).

 

 

*Edit: Okay maybe also one of Samuel Jackson's scenes in the Prequels but that's not going to win me over since I thought those films sucked...

This!  This is how you deal with too much soak.
