Reviews are starting to pop up all over the Internet on fan sites, for those who were lucky enough to catch one of these screenings. The overall feeling is that the film is very, very good - definitely much better than the last two - although there are still some parts where the dialogue isn't that great. But then, all Star Wars films have bad dialogue - it's part of the charm.

Bad dialogue may be part of the charm, but it sure as hell doesn't generate charm. I find the original trilogy adorably clunky while the prequels are just plain clunky IMO. I want to see ROTS anyway though...

Corny dialogue is one thing.

Padme declaring her love for Anakin was simply awful.

As am I. I actually like the Prequels so far (yes, even Phantom Menace), but you will forgive me if I indulge my lust for mind-numbingly awful dialogue.

'You're breaking my heart...'

'Its not like here. Here, everything is so... smooth'.

Ok, that was my last bad dialogue bit. Now for some pretty cool lines that I've heard from 'Revenge of the Sith'. I've seen them around, so I know they exist.

'You were the chosen one!' is quite heart-breaking.

Saw that Star Wars is on Time Magazine this week. And they liked the film, so that is saying something.

Got to see the new Star Wars film Friday...

So I got to sit in on a press screening of "Revenge of the Sith" Friday afternoon. I'm a big Star Wars fan, so it was a nice treat. Anyone who is a fan of the series will undoubtedly think this one is the best of the prequels, and I would have to rank it up there with "Empire".

I only have minor complaints about it, but since acting was never the strong suit in any of the six films, I guess that would be asking for too much.

It's great entertainment, and the die-hards will be happy with the way the loose ends have been tied up. The casual fan will be happy with the pace, and anyone who has never seen a Star Wars film will not be lost, and probably enjoy it for what it is, a great sci-fi/fantasy film.

Peace.

Sounds great.

By the way, we have a Star Wars thread going over in Zoo Station...

I'm going to the midnight show and then to a 3:30pm show later that day with some friends.

Thanks to my wonderful hubby who will be taking care of the kids while I'm on my last Star Wars adventure.
