flash or anakin? thats the question

flash gordon and anakin skywalker. in these two heroes i see the conflict between old and new-the ol' retro episodes of good ol' flash or anakin skywalker or should i say darth vader in episode 3.
personally i like old school stuff. my foggy memory of flash brings me memories about my romantic childhood, pure and innocent. however the new productions makes me hink only about money, huge movie companies and galaxies made of celebrities. who's spaceship do you like better?

How can you even ask that question? Flash Gordon is virtual invincible in the 'who could beat who' stakes.

Flash Gordon versus Buck Rogers, thats a proper fight... :cyclops:

Flash Gordon vs. Connor MacLeod would be a good one, you eliminate the advantage of a Queen theme song

FLASH!!! OOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!

W flash are you refering to? the one that got kidnapped by aliens with his gf and ended up being a hero and fighting the evil ming? I doubt he had any special powers.

No special powers? What about his American Football death moves?

Also thinking logically, Anakin is supposedly in possession of the most powerful force the galaxy has ever seen, and still falls to the darkside. Flash, with nothing more his street smarts brings down a galactic empire singlehandedly (well, almost).

Yup, i thought of the right wimp, a football player against a jedi/sith lord? maybe you mena popularity fight, in a real one Flash would get his neck broken in 2 seconds. by the force. And he falls to the dark side because he had the highest potential of becoming skille in the force, but he became arrogant and selfish.

As I said, red spandex. Deflects bullets, blades and force effects... stains quite badly though.

Also Flash is irresistable to women (2 women in the flim, both fall for him...). Far be it from me to suggest Anakin's sexual preference, but I think he'd prefer Flash to Padme. It ain't loads of force that corrupts the jedi, its spending too long in the closet...

I think I'm beginning to see a pattern... Lucas is a homophobe. All the dark side characters are gay! Darth Maul, the Emperor, Anakin, Dooku and general Grievous (not sure about him though). And all the yedi's are straigth: I can see Yoda getting it on with a lovely lass!! (EDIT: Or am I the only one here? hehe).

Flash is way cooler than anakin. not that i've seen episode 2 or 3 yet. not sure if i ever will either. The wounds from the travesty that was the Phantom Menace still haven't fully healed.

and i shall leave you with this quote:

"Ja Ja Binks makes the Ewoks look like [expletive deleted] Shaft" -Tim Bisley (Simon Pegg) in Spaced.

And lets be honest, the Ewoks were quite annoying.

Flash is the tipical American annoying football star, he cna't compare to the sw chars. And the ewoks are cool, unlike Jar Jar

Damn right! I was hoping the Tim B name tag was a Spaced reference...

In 1994 while on weekend manoeuvres in France, I commandeered a Chieftain tank without permission of my immediate superiors. I then attempted to invade Paris. However, en route I stopped off at Disneyland, or Eurodisney as it was then called, and was subsequently apprehended on Space Mountain.

Well I wouldn't say all of them, the Emperor strikes me more as the dirty old man type (just had a mental flash of the Emperor chasing a nurse Benny Hill style...), and Darth Maul is probably bi-sexual (dual ended lightsabre, the ultimate metaphor...).

My real name is Tim Black.

Oh and who's even cooler than Flash or anything any of the original starwars trilogy...

Barbarella. Fantatic film. I'll never forget the first time i saw this film. Mind that could be too do with the 100 or so mushrooms i'd just eaten. Damn these flashbacks.
