  1. Phantom Menace how it should have ended-death of Jar Jar.

    • If I remember correctly hishe is working on vids for the SW prequels currently. So that’ll be good once they finish those. :)

  2. Megan Fox looks incredible in the Call Of Duty commercials…

  3. I think Im lost here…
    Is that a delightful deleted scene featuring jar jar´s death?

  4. Funny, but really, how many years is it after Phantom Menace, and people still want to kill Jar Jar? Sad.

    • Tell me about it.

      Why are people STILL fixated on his role in Episode I? It happened now move on with your life. They’re not SW fans, they’re whiny kids.

      He’s become such an integral part of the saga, appearing in Eps II and III as well as numerous TCW eps. doing nothing but good and being generally serious about what he’s doing. Even a decade later he’s still a prominent character; that’s proof he’ll never be subjected to obscurity or being killed off, just to please panty-bunched fanboys.

      • Funny thing is, 14 years after Phantom Menace released and I still don’t understand why people hated that character.

        I rather enjoyed him as some much needed comic relief in between the decent race sequence and the boring political debates.
