star wars (англ.) [май. 18, 2005|11:38 am]
Anatoly Vorobey
Забавная рецензия на новые "Звёздные войны" в Нью-Йоркере, очень отрицательная и смешная:
Anakin, too, is a divided figure, wrenched between his Jedi devotion to selfless duty and a lurking hunch that, if he bides his time and trashes his best friends, he may eventually get to wear a funky black mask and start breathing like a horse.

This film is the tale of his temptation. We already know the outcome—Anakin will indeed drop the killer-monk Jedi look and become Darth Vader, the hockey goalkeeper from hell—because it forms the substance of the original “Star Wars.”


The young Obi-Wan Kenobi is not, I hasten to add, the most nauseating figure onscreen; nor is R2-D2 or even C-3PO, although I still fail to understand why I should have been expected to waste twenty-five years of my life following the progress of a beeping trash can and a gay, gold-plated Jeeves.

Замечательная рецензия, спасибо. Особенно про Йоду понравилось, там где "Break me a fucking give". :)

Там же о Йоде: “whose reptilian smugness we have been encouraged to mistake for wisdom”.

Вчера увидел вживую рекламный плакат со злобным Йодой. Получил приступ истерического кудахтанья :)

Superficial but exquisite

I kept posting every Lane's article. Until I understood that not being selective is really close to being boring

смешно , но неточно. Дживс - это как раз r2-d2, а не с-3po
