Like or loathe the prequels, they're the sole vision of Star Wars' creator. I fear that there's too many fingers in the proverbial pie this time around. Thank God Lucas' shares give him a (significant) say.

And no need to throw the 'racist' word around when it doesn't apply. It's not a particularly nice accusation.

Telling people to fuck off? Also not welcomed here.

And try not to go overboard - it's an unusual name, but hardly gobbledygook. Like many from a different language it's just unusual to those who don't know the language or pronunciation.

Haha they would have been a bit more justified against such a bizarre accusation, but calling it gobbledegook makes them about even on the dumb-ass stakes.

As for the topic at hand, it's not a bad choice for casting but I have only seen her in Hanna that I can recall.

Pronounced 'Seershah', spelt 'Saoirse'. Gobbledygook.

We're grown ups here. The site permits swearing - but not at others. Asterisks don't change a thing.

The astericks are indicitive of some quantum of sensitivity and tact on my part, so cut me some slack chum.

No, they're some kind of cod coyness is using the word you're using. As I said - we don't care about asterisks as the intent is no different, so please avoid abusing others on the board.

The only thing that surprises me about this thread is that I realised I already knew how 'Saoirse' was pronounced and therefore I have an understanding of Gobbledygook. I'm thrilled to know I'm so multicultural. I think it was from 'Round Ireland With a Fridge' that educated me, if memory serves.

I always avoid it, unless incited (an implication of racism, for instance). Don't incite me. Capiche (kapeesh)?

I have exactly this same fear. Lucas needs to be as involved as possible for these films to be good.

Be careful not to wander down to the World Cinema section, you'll have a meltdown.

It's lucky England doesn't have a tradition of names with peculiar pronunciations compared to their spelling.

Spelling it f**k and pronouncing it fuck. It's the hypocrisy that hurts the most.

She is a good actress, I just think her big problem as of late is the roles she's been picking.

How I Live Now looks interesting. Hanna was great. It's not popular but I really enjoyed The Lovely Bones and she was the best thing in it.
It's just The Host... all actors should stay away from anything Stephenie Meyer had a hand in.
