Saurumon is Count Dukoo

Post#1 » Thu Jan 01, 1970 12:00 am

I suppose it depends on your definition of "big". Chris Lee as been in lots of fun movies, like horror films, and Clint Eastwood's spaghetti westerns. Normally all he need do is look tough with a mean stare and his job is practically done. I've always liked him in the parts he's played. :D

I can't comment about the bad script until I've seen the movie; however, AOTC is meant to be a Saturday Matinee Movie so it doesn't need sparkling modern witty dialogue. After all, it was made for the fourteen year old boy in all of us. :dog:

The dentist I have had from the age of four looks like C. Lee's twin brother. Even today he scares me....

Christopher Lee is a god, if only for his work with Hammer Horror movies as Count Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster etc. etc. it is quite fitting that he gets to be in a Star Wars movie now, as his counterpart Peter Cushing (now sadly deceased) played Grand Moff Tarkin in the first Star Wars Movie 25 years ago. It's odd then that as the scariest man alive (he also did the voice of Death in the Discworld animations) he should be so massively not scary and suck so badly in AOTC, I mean, calling him Count Dooku? It's a bit of a huge homage to his glittering career isn't it?

Well, the 14 year old boy's gonna have to go through puberty for this one b/c there's some suppressed steaminess that really doesn't cut it. Look it's a good show for a matinee, you're right, but I was expecting a little more. I mean I though the first one was pretty good. I was disappointed in this one, that's all. Let's hope the next one is as dark as they've promised.

Christopher Lee is great. And I agree, he's one of the classiest and scariest guys out there. Can't wait until TTT!

I'm with you actually Yummy, probably because I expected too much from this one. I expected nothing from TPM which is why I liked it so much, it surprised me. So I hoped this one would be fantastic, and to be fair some of it is, but I was still left a little disappointed, especially with Count Dooku.
