The one part he did close his eyes for was of course the part when Anakin catches on fire and starts to burn.
I guess that would look cool to a 10 year old boy. And that was sad when Anakin started to burn, poor thing, I felt sorry for him even though he had turned to the dark side. I guess that would upset a kid who had been into the first 2 movies and really liked Anakin.

Other than that he loved the movie and hasn't stop talking about
it. I wanted him to see a Star Wars movie up on the big screen, it's a totally different thing than on a tv.

It was nice being able to take my oldest to see it, just like my parents did my brother and I when the first one came out in '77.
I saw Star Wars in '77 too when I was a kid. I took my oldest to see this one, I don't think the younger ones would have behaved long enough. But they'll see it when I buy the video!

My 4 year old little girl wanted to go, she loves Darth Vader, but there was no way I was taking her to see this one on the big screen. She will just have to wait to see it on dvd when it comes out. Even then I'll skip over the sad parts.

The times I went to go and see it though, there were a lot of younger kids with their parents there. I did notice a few of them crying when Anakin started to burn, and not just tears rolling down the face, I mean sobbing out loud. I felt sorry for them because I don't think they were old enough to figure out that it was just a movie and not real.

Of course my parents took me to see Jaws when it came out and I was only 7 or 8. Talk about believing what you saw on the big screen. I didn't want anything to do with going to the beach or swimming in pools, even taking baths I was scared that shark was coming up the drain hole to get me.

That's sad. I saw a lot of stunned and disturbed kids coming out of the theater.

Heck, I even came out of the theatre a bit disturbed and I'm an adult and not even that emotionally involved in Star Wars. I would definitely think twice before taking very young ones to see it.

There was also no comic relief for kids, like the ewoks or JarJar.

During the beginning half hour or so, R2-D2 provides comic relief, but that soon goes away.

Best: Anything between Obi and Ani at Mustafar. Amazing.
Yoda knocking off those guards.
"Always on the move" Gotta love Obiwan.

Worst: "hold me like you did on Naboo" SHUT UP
General Grievous... Not necessary for the film, a very boring character. Execute order 66... Bleh!

Thanks for the 'nooo' pic I'm going to make a sig of it. I don't hate the 'nooo' line, what else was he supposed to do, assuming he still had emotions? He had turned to the dark side and become half machine for nothing since she was dead, and he hated himself for causing it. I don't know why he didn't turn on the emperor at that point though, blame him, kill him, take power for himself.

Its not the 'Nooooo' that kills me - its the insanely melodramatic Scarlett O'Hara gesture that went with it. Totally unforgivable.

What would be a better alternative?

Frankly, I thought Vader would go after Sidious, get knocked down by him, and then realize that he (Vader) will always be subservient to Sidious.

Did you notice how Sidious was all smiles when he told Vader that Padme was dead!?

Maybe he shouldn't have screamed out No. After getting so mad and breaking everything instead of saying "nnnoooooo!!" maybe he should have accepted that he caused it and there is no turning back for him now. He is with the dark side. I don't know, just an idea.

I did love the smirk Palpatine had when he told Vader that he killed Padme, such pure evil.

I kind of like your alternative. Yes, have him scream 'Nooooo!', have more stuff fly across the room (some even aimed at Palpatine) and then maybe have him draw his lightsabre (after all, it now transpires that the whole reason he joined the Sith was a lie) , but Palpatine easily throws him across the room and says something like 'You did what had to be done, Lord Vader. The name of Anakin Skywalker will no longer bare any meaning for you. Only though Me, and the dark side, do you exist. Never forget it." Then, after a long pause of acceptance, he can say what he ends up saying ad infinitum in the Old Trilogy 'Yes, my master'.

I didnt see Palpatine smile at all during that scene, I thought he was strangely solemn. You know what this means, dont you? Time for a fourth viewing...

I've been looking for an excuse to see it a third time.
