    While preggies with the Luke and Leia, Padame will have her hair in buns, thus tying in Leia’s buns. No pun intended.
    ...it's been a long time.

    I just got back from it and all I can say is, Wow. George Lucas is back in full power! The originals remain the best, but now it is mainly for the sake of that they are the originals and without them, I wouldnt have gotten the movie that I saw today. I have never felt so much emotion in a Star Wars film, I had goosebumps, near tears (though when it comes to movies im a big ole softie) and I was at the edge of my seat through most of it.
    Hayden Christensen proves himself as an actor, I now realise that he was a very good choice of the role. Usually my main complaint of the new trilogy is of how Lucas relys so heavily on special effects, because it takes me out of the movie. But with this one I stayed right in the middle of it, completely captivated. Though it still would have been nice for Yoda to remain a puppet. But meh.
    Ewan McGregor never fails to please in his role. I read somewhere that he studied Alec Guinesses accent in the first movies, and it is in this movie that I finally noticed it. (probably because I just watched the original trilogy a few nights ago after a long while) The effort he put into his character is so good.
    Revenge of the Sith is by far the most intense Star Wars movie ever made, and it deserves it's PG-13. Like I said before, the movie was so intense, i have honestly never felt as much emotion in a Star Wars movie before. Its very very very very very very good.

    One question that i have though, and I'll put it in spoilers because it happens right in the end.

    Spoiler
    What was it that Yoda said to Obi-Wan about contacting Qui Gon on Tatooine?
    What an idiot....

    Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

    Basically, he says that Qui Gon has figured out how to defeat death, and he wants Obi-Wan to learn that as well. It's pretty much the explanation for the end of Episode 6 when Yoda, Obi-Wan and Anakin appear as glowy-type things to Luke.

    Hahahahah I laughed so hard at that.

    I liked the movie. It made me say "Hey, maybe Lucas can redo Star Tours and I won't hate it."

    Gratuitous shot of me looking like a ho!!!:

    I just saw it again, still loved it, sorry to say. I had more people in the audience (about 30)and strangely enough they were even less responsive than when I had six people in the audience. No one clapped or anything! meh, I am all over this movie, oh if you notice after the first scene when obi wan and anakin are coming back from the fight and coming in to meet the senate and all that jazz, when you see all the ships coming in, if you look to the lower right hand part of the screen you can see the millenium falcon. I noticed it the first time, but forgot to mention it.

    best line

    Yoda: Not if anything to say about it, I have.
    What an idiot....

    Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

    Its interesting that if you read the comic adaptation, there is more stuff. Like Qui-gon visiting Yoda and at the end, Yoda landing on Dagobah and ObiWan walking off in the the sunset among a couple other things. Maybe we'll see that in the DVD version.

    Also, the General Grevious storyline is told in the Cartoon Network shows and lead right up to the start of EP. 3.

    All in all I liked it better than 1 & 2. It was pretty much what it should have been.

    I liked the technology tie-in was very well. This one had the look of ep4-5-6 with the ships and storm troopers.

    I had a total geek moment when Vader took his first breath. It was wonderful!

    Are you kidding me? This was one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I love the original Star Wars franchise and I think very few movies even come close to their brilliance. Over the years, Lucas has become bloated in both body and wealth. Much like Michael Jackson’s never-ending plastic surgery, Lucas simply does not understand when he overdoes it. Enough with the CGI effects, we get it already. Save your effects wizardry for what you do best, video games! Both the background and the foreground of this film are so busy I forget what I am watching.

    When the Stars Wars films were first developed, the special effects were limited in nature. This meant that the movie was story driven and forced the actors to perform! Now, we are treated to a film where the plot is filled with holes, pacing is off, and great actors were reduced to reading cue cards in front of a green screen. With a running time of 2 hours and 37 minutes, only 7 minutes of it was tolerable. I have never heard such forced dialogue in a movie. God help us if Lucas gives any input to the final Indiana Jones film.

    Oh, and please bring back the Yoda we love, the rubberized Henson puppet.

    Thumbs up I dug it.

    I may not need spoiler tags for this stuff, so I'm probably being over-cautious here.

    I went into this movie having already read the novel and comic book, and this movie still hit me like a ton of bricks. Yes, there were two cheeseball moments,

    1.
    Spoiler
    Vader's "Noooooooo!"


    2.
    Spoiler
    Anakin and Padme's exchange of "Only because I'm so in love..."


    While I wanted to see much more screen time for the wookies. I'm hoping some of the deleted scenes on the DVD will take care of that.

    There was several very subtle nods to the original trilogy and that really helped complete the whole saga for me. Did anyone notice:
    Spoiler
    the millenium falcon in the first 10 min or so of the movie?


    I'm sure people will be tossing in the usual complaints about the "wooden acting", and sure there won't be any oscars given out for acting, but overall: this movie delivers I'm anxoius to watch ep 1 and 2 to see if they're more bearable after seeing ep 3.

    You're kidding, right? They were state-of-the-art for its time. George didn't like what was out there because it didn't allow him to do what he wanted to do, so he pretty much built/developed ILM so that he could do what he wanted to do with regard to special effects.

    I really like Harrison Ford, and he definitely got better with time, but he was not a very good actor in Episodes 4 and 5.

    I have - in just about all three films of the original trilogy. ("I recognized your foul stench when I was first brought on board.") No, dialogue is not George's forte, never has been.

    So you're forgetting that Lucasfilm owns the Indy franchise? But George would probably only be involved with story, not dialogue.
