So I can stand strong with my belief that Yoda's theme stunk and should've never gone that far!

I'm OT biased, but the Final 4 was how it should have been.

The Egregious 8 is here!

You might think this is destined to be a Jar Jar vs. Anakin showdown, but Rose Tico is running strong into the Egregious 8 with a 100% clean sweep in her last matchup. VOTE NOW!

Today's Matchups
#1 "Oh maxi big the Force! Well that smells stinkerwhiff!" (78%) vs. #6 "Ooh mooey mooey I love you!" (67%)

#1 " I don't like sand." (78%) vs. #2 "Love can't save you Padme! Only my new powers can to that!" (72%)

#1 "Ani, you'll always be that little boy I knew on Tatooine." (89%) vs. #6 "Will you defer your motion to allow a commission to explore the validity of your accusations? (53%)

#2 " Look I can't hold forever. If you reach him, tell him Leia has an urgent message for him about his mother." (61%) vs. #4 "We're going to win this war not by fighting what we hate, but by saving what we love." (100%)

After reading through the list of quotes each round, this tournament has really made me appreciate the awfulness of this collection of bureaucratic technobabble

So my next idea would have sort of a "Tournament of Champions" feel with the theme being - best Star Wars moments. Instead of one giant field, we'd do a smaller tournament for each of the 11 movies (9 episodes, plus Rogue One and Solo) which each would have a field of 16 best moments.

My definition of a moment would be 30 seconds or less on screen that are your favorite. So the Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan/Maul duel would not qualify as whole, but the part where Maul first exposes the double-blade would count, or the part where Obi-Wan kills him (but not really).

Similarly - the Rebel attack on the Death Star is too long, but the moment Luke blows it up or the moment Han saves the day in the Falcon does.

To make sure I don't miss any that really deserve to be in the field, I'd open it up for a week of nominations - one day the OT, one day the PT, one day the ST, one day the Star Wars stories. Not saying I'll use every nominee, but it will at least give everyone a chance for their 2 cents and ensure I'm a lot less likely to miss anything.

A 12th field would be dedicated to the animated stuff - Clone Wars and Rebels. I did not watch Resistance, but I'm certainly open to suggestions from it, and from the original Clone Wars micro-cartoons as well.

The 2 finalists from each region would get a spot in the Tournament of Champions. That would make 24 entries. Then bump it up to a field of 32 with next 8 next entries that the highest percentage of votes received in their own brackets. That would make a field of 32 for the Tournament of Champions that would then proceed with head to head 24-hour windows like we've been doing.

It's pretty involved, but it's also Star Wars and we're nothing if not meticulous. In fact that would have been a good alternate line for Sidious in ROTS "We must move quickly. The Jedi are meticulous!"

Hopefully, there's interest. If so, I'll start taking nominations for the OT tomorrow.

Great idea. Not to jump the gun, but "I am a Jedi, like my father before me" is my all time favorite.

Hey, Anakin! Did you hear Jar Jar Binks made the Effed-up Four with 86% of the vote!



The bad news is, you made it too.



It's true, bro. And your Lady Wife is right there with you.



Sorry gorgeous, you are some serious eye candy, but that dialogue is the pits.



Well, long story short you were the prequels, and Uncle George wrote all your dialogue. It's rough, some people can't even watch those movies.



The good news is, you're not alone. Rose Tico is also in the Effed-Up Four. She's making the claim that the dialogue in the sequel trilogy is even worse than in the prequels!



Yeah, in a lot of ways it's too close to call. The sequels had some dumb lines, but at least they didn't cast any adorable kids in roles of future bad asses.






VOTE HERE!

#1 "Oh maxi big the Force! Well that smells stinkerwhiff!" (86%) vs. #4 "We're going to win this war not by fighting what we hate, but by saving what we love." (67%)

#1 "Ani, you'll always be that little boy I knew on Tatooine." (57%) vs. #2 "Love can't save you Padme! Only my new powers can do that!" (52%)

Rose vs Padme to prove once and for all that you can't force a love story in star wars were none exists.

OK Boyos, I need your nominations today for the greatest moments of ANH, ESB, and ROTJ. You don't have to second or third anyone else's pick. I'm going to take 16 from each movie and rev this thing up probably next Monday. If you'd be so kind as to put the movie's initials next to the moment, that would be great. Try to keep it under 30 seconds (that's what she said).

I assume you mean the opening scene? Because that has to be in this.

ESB - Han cutting open the taun taun
ESB - First appearance of Obi Wan in force form to Luke when he's half dead

ROTJ - Leia takes off her bounty hunter mask

We are going to end up identifying every scene in these. Lol.

Yes, opening scene. Brian went with the actual open chase, so I took the next bit.
