Thanks to my wonderful hubby who will be taking care of the kids while I'm on my last Star Wars adventure.
Are you one of those who dress up for the occasion?

Do others in the theater wear Star Wars outfits?

No I don't dress up for the occasion. I actually thought about wearing my pj's to see the midnight show.

Awesome in digital, the way it is meant to be seen.

I'm glad there are other Star Wars Fans here. I did see some other U2 fans at Star Wars Celebration III.

But I've seen some great footage in Digital at CIII.

Awesome!

No I dont' dress up. I did have a Princess Leia costume made for me when I was in Bulgaria for the peace corps Halloween Party in Romania.

I can't make it to the midnight showing since I'm a single mom living in DC and no family to help out.

This movie is going to kick some ass. 5 lightsaber duels. Wooooo!!!

My sister is a teacher and was talking to one of her students about Star Wars last week. This week, when she went to see him, he had drawn a picture for her:



He's 8 btw

She was impressed that he even got the colors of the lightsabers right

(She has now explained to me that this is "Return of the Jedi" era lightsaber colors, because before then Luke's was blue, but after he got his hand cut off, he got a made a new one and it was green. When I sighed in exasperation at this too detailed history of the lightsaber, she said to me, "Well everbody has their thing miss U2 forum poster!!!"

I like how he screwed up the title, crossed it off, and kept using the same paper.

I remember when I was a kid and always tried to draw the Star Wars logo.

Screwed it up every time...

I grew up on Star Wars as a kid, had the toys, etc. So I'am a fan of these movies. Looking forward to Ep III. I will see it the afternoon on the 19th. No midnight showing, camping out, dressing up, etc.

I dont understand the dressing up part though. I think its a tad freaky and maybe pathetic. I guess though, its not hurting anyone, each their own. I think someone else said this though (was it MVD?) The U2 GA line is very reminiscent of the SW line. Same atmosphere, different event.

CANNES — The last episode of the seminal sci-fi saga "Star Wars" screened at the Cannes film festival Sunday, completing a six-part series that remains a major part of popular culture — and delivering a galactic jab to U.S. President George W Bush.

"Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith" was seen ahead of a celebrity-laden evening screening to be attended by its creator and director, George Lucas, and its cast, including Natalie Portman and Hayden Christensen.

Reaction at advance screenings was effusive, with festival-goers, critics and journalists at Cannes applauding at the moment the infamous Darth Vader came into being.

But there were also murmurs at the parallels being drawn between Bush's administration and the birth of the space opera's evil Empire.

Baddies' dialogue about bloodshed and despicable acts being needed to bring "peace and stability" to the movie's universe, mainly through a fabricated war, set the scene.

And then came the zinger, with the protagonist, Anakin Skywalker, saying just before becoming Darth Vader: "You are either with me — or you are my enemy."

To the Cannes audience, often sympathetic to anti-Bush messages in cinema as last year's triumph here of Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" attested, that immediately recalled Bush's 2001 ultimatum, "You're either with us or against us in the fight against terror."

Lucas, speaking to reporters, emphasised that the original "Star Wars" was written at the end of the Vietnam war, when Richard Nixon was U.S. president, but that the issue being explored was still very much alive today.

"The issue was, how does a democracy turn itself into a dictatorship?" he said.

"When I wrote it, Iraq (the U.S.-led war) didn't exist... but the parallels of what we did in Vietnam and Iraq are unbelievable."

He acknowledged an uncomfortable feeling that the United States was in danger of losing its democratic ideals, like in the movie.

"I didn't think it was going to get this close. I hope this doesn't come true in our country."

Although he didn't mention Bush by name, Lucas took what sounded like another dig while explaining the transformation of the once-good Anakin Skywalker to the very bad Darth Vader.

"Most bad people think they're good people," he said.

The political message, though, was for the most part subsumed by the action and heroics the series — set "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away" — is known for.

And for fans hungry for a last look at "Star Wars" elevated above the disappointing two other films that preceded "Sith," it was satisfying closure.

"Whatever one thought of the previous two installments, this dynamic picture irons out most of the problems, and emerges as the best in the overall series since 'The Empire Strikes Back,'" the Hollywood trade magazine Variety said.

The buzz meant the movie was the hottest ticket at Cannes this year. It also signalled the end of a cinematic era for a generation of filmgoers.

"Revenge of the Sith" is the last of three prequels to the landmark trilogy that burst onto the screens in 1977, 1980 and 1983.

It is in fact the middle episode of the epic story arc, explaining the events that led young Luke Skywalker to battle Darth Vader in order to save Princess Leia, before going on to vanquish the Empire.

Its success could be measured in the claps and smiles in the theatre, which were light years away from the tepid response engendered by the first two prequels, released in 1999 and 2002, widely panned for their boring exposition and wooden dialogue.

Only the French media could ruin the movie for me
