Flux vs. Star Wars

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread

hey wassup yall. how would u compare the Flux universe ( limited as it is ) to the Star Wars universe? personally, i find the Flux flava much more rich and, oh yeah - Peter Chung kicks Doug Chiang's ass ( not to mention the concept designer's from the first Star Wars trilogy who I can't think of his name, although i do admire and respect both their works ). is anyone even on this site or is the crowd somewheres else now...

They're two totally different beasts. In my opinion Star Wars is okay for fun and escapism but not very thought-provoking.

> They're two totally different beasts

true. i must have gotten carried away in a Flux-induced euphoria and gone insane there for a second... whew - ok i'm better now

I think the fact that the star wars universe is so limitless makes it superior to the land o' aeon flux...although with aeon they can go to other planets and such with star wars they have so much they can do! if they wanted there could be a world just like aeons universe somwhere in the vast star wars universe...

yes, but were the general public's acceptance/appetite toward these two products to be inverted, couldn't there just as easily be a Star Wars-type place in the Flux universe?

i guess in the end it all comes down to personal taste... sorry for this slightly insane thread yall

Have you heard of a new short film called "George Lucas In Love"? In it, John Lee (voice of Trevor) plays a C3PO-like character. That's gotta be good!

No, i havn't heard of it, is it gonna be on video? I must see it I tell you! See it I must, tell you I do!

Cool "George Lucus in Love" what sounds pretty cool i wanna see it..did you say it was out? if not do you happen to know when it is coming out paul?

Star Wars is much more a universe about good and evil where as AF is a place where good and evil are somewhat blurred. After all, would you really consider Aeon a her

-- Olonium (Nynrox@aol.com), April 10, 2000.

True, Aeon's no hero, but look at Trevor... wouldn't you say that he gave in to the dark side? Anyway, Lucas In Love played at a couple of film festivals, but that's it. Your best bet (if you live in the US), is to look for it on the Sundance Channel, they have a lot of shorts.

BTW, all John Lee fans should keep an eye out (I know I am) for the release of Breathing Hard, where he gets TOP BILLING! Methinks we'll be seeing a lot more of Mr. Lee in the future...

Apples and oranges my friend, apples and oranges

I would sell my soul to see John Lee become an A-lister

This is perhaps a scootch off the subject, but did anyone else notice that within The Phantom Menace there are actually two seperate movies? One is an exciting, engaging CGI movie and the other is a dull and drab Human Being movie. Every now and then the two stumble on screen together, and it makes the humans look even more pathetic in comparison. I mean, look at the kicken' pod race (completely digital) and then go look at the live action sequence where Queen Ladeedada and her wiener-commandos storm the castle. After they use their Batmanesque fizzy lifting guns, there's a cut to the interior and we can see the window off in the distance. The glass explodes and there is a pause. Then coupla wieners stroll out and kinda loiter, and the rest of the crack squad wanders out into the hallway. My children, this is not how you film an action sequence. This is how you clump into the mall and make the life-or-death dicision between Food Court and Parade of Shoes. I dunno. Did this strike anyone else as odd?

Guess what, now you can buy George Lucas In Love at Amazon.com. It's 8 bucks, which I personally think is way too high (that's like 1.00 for every minute of film), but who knows, maybe it comes with "the making of..." footage or something. Anyway, should you decide to get it, tell me if John Lee had any cool scenes.
