    Yeah, so I just came back from seeing Ep III.

    Cried about 1/2 through. So good.

    I'm starting a Facebook group called "George Lucas No Longer Owes Me 8 Bucks".
    Well, light travels from the sun. Then, bounces off of our planet, and back into our eyes so we can perceive color. My body can intercept that light and dance around on it!

    Purrrrowr! :devil: Why thank you O. Accomodating as always.
    I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
    That explains the trouble that I'm always in...

    Wow. George = redeemer of the self. No more to say as much as a Star Wars geek I am.

    High points for me.....

    Finally seeing the homeworld of Chewbacca, and the often-mentioned-but-never-seen Alderaan.

    Seeing the visual link between this trilogy and the originals (the interior of the Blockade Runner than also appeared in Episode 4).

    The explanation for Palpatine's ghastly appearance and his absolutely creepy performance this time around.

    Hearing the name's "Luke" and "Leia" spoken in dialogue.

    The final shot of the binary suns of Tatooine.

    The much, much better duel between Anakin and Dooku this time around (the last duel in Ep 2 was very badly shot).

    Jimmy Smits's expanded role this time.

    Hayden Christensen's acting......he has come far since Ep 2, and really conveyed a hateful, passionate young man.

    The final defeat of Anakin. Truly a hard scene to watch (I dont like watching people burn).

    James Earl Jones's first lines as Vader.

    No lines from friggin Jar-Jar!!!!!


    This film rocked on all levels.

    Just walked in from seeing it with Cassidy. My husband went to a midnight show last night. I couldn't go, since Chloe started barfing about 9 p.m., just minutes before we were walking out the door! Kids! My sister and her fiance were going to spend the night with the kids, but instead her fiance got to go to the movie in my place.

    I really loved it.....I've been a bit ambivalent about it, not really looking forward to it, and now I understand why. I guess I just didn't really want it all to be done. Really done. Ugh.

    I was thrilled to be able to see it for the first time sitting next to Cassidy, who was clutching a Darth Vader action figure in one hand and a light saber in the other. On the other side of her was a woman who sobbed the last 45 minutes of the movie. She and her husband came in decked out in old school Star Wars shirts, and talked with Cass for about an hour before the movie (we saw it at a plex that had SW playing on 6 screens). It was kind of cool to be seated near them. Also, a little creepy. They were WAY into it.

    Okay......things I liked:

    Spoiler


    ~Palpatine getting ugly.....his fight with Mace Windu kicked major bootie. I had goosebumps the entire time. The way Cass feels about Vader, I've always felt about the Emperor, so for me, I knew that watching Palpatine show his true colors was going to be major. And it was. I was completely enthralled. And terrified!

    ~The Emperor and Yoda flipping all over the place. Awesome.

    ~General Grievous. As soon as I played with the GG action figure, I knew he would be cool.....and boy was he. I looooved him!

    ~The opening sequence. Holy crap. Humorous, exciting, beautifully executed.

    ~The Wookies. I was so happy to see Chewbacca. I knew he was going to be in it, but there was something so cool about seeing him.

    ~"Execute Order Number 66." Wow. It was so hard watching all the Jedis going down.

    ~Obi Wan and Anakin's fight. You know how it ends, but still, to see it happen was incredible. Obi Wan crying, "You were my brother!" Oy.

    ~Anakin getting his armor/limbs/helmet/breathing thing. Wowza. Well done. And I got goosebumps as soon as I saw all the guys in the uniforms at the end of the movie, while the Emperor and Vader looked out at the semi-formed Death Star. I was thrilled. Wanted to go home and watch A New Hope.


    Stuff I thought was just eh:

    Spoiler


    ~Anakin and Padme scenes. I wasn't all that thrilled by them. The only part of their conversations I really enjoyed or found interesting was their first one, when he said, "This is the happiest day of my life." I was particularly disappointed in their last encounter. Bah. I wanted a little something more from them. She really disappointed me for some reason.

    ~There were a few CGI things that icked me. When they landed the 1/2 ship at the beginning, it was so cool to get the close-up of Obi Wan and Anakin in the cockpit of the craft......but damn, they looked like cartoons. Ugh. I almost started laughing. Come on! You do all that incredible computer work, and leave that a mess? It would have been such a cool shot!


    But that was it.....I really loved it. It wasn't the best movie in the world, but as Cassidy said, "It was the most important episode!" I totally agree.

    Doh! I forgot to mention how sad I was to see Count Dooku out of it so early. I loooove Christopher Lee. He was incredible in his final scene. LOVED it!!

    I am wondering if there is any significance to the names Luke and Leia? She obviously had them in mind- like are they family names? Do they mean something special to her? I would have loved to see Annakin and Padme discussing baby names

    Actually I belive Jar Jar uttered one word! When that guy told him to get out of the way in the scene where Anakin returns from killing Dooku. So, you owe me a virtual Chip and Dale bag of cookies Oritzmo. Anywho, the only thing that upsets me about this movie is they need to dumb the technology down. It's so advanced. (I realize Palpatine is viewing the same shots that Luke and Han see on their viewscreens in the Falcon, but it was on some huge holo thing) you have the droids with shields, the sheilds that hold prisoners, troops that can actually aim and kill heroes, and ships that kick way more ace than those in the o.g. trilogy. Yes the rebel alliance is allowed to have bad technolgy since they no tienen dinero, but the empire should dominate with technology. its almost as if vader is a crappier version of grevous. and finally i think the Tantive IV soldiers shoulda been wearing those retro helmets, just to make it tie in. but i loved this movie! P.S. i thot it was cool that Palps used the same technique on Luke and Anakin to try and get them to turn. He tried to make them kill him by using anger.

    Stinkerbelle, I still think that Ep. V and VI are more important to the story than III, but they are all up there.

    I don't know, I guess I just love the redemption of Anakin, knowing that no matter what he did in the past can be redeemed in the end.

    I think I'm actually more excited to see it for the 2nd time on Sunday than I was today. I feel I missed some things, like the Millenium Falcon.

    Where was that again so I don't miss it?

    Man, I love how:

    Spoiler
    ...They make Dead!Padme look pregnant to hide from Anakin/Vader that she had the kids. Nice touch!

    ...C-3PO's mind was erased.

    ...They used blatant fan service: Tarkin, Antilles, showing Alderaan, Chewbacca, massive wookies, the bridge of the Star Destroyer...


    QUESTION: What does Padme whisper before she dies? I really couldn't catch it...

    Yeah but 20 years of rule under an Empire can run things down quite a bit. It's hard to do it right though because either they make the technology look old school and get yelled at for it being to cheesy compared to today standards. Or they do it more advanced and get yelled at for it not being like Episodes 4-6.

    The same can be said for Star Trek though, the orginal TV is sort of cheesy and then they make Enterprise, which is supposed to be the first one chronologically and it's way more advanced looking.
