Episode III: Revenge of the Sith



So who's going to camp out weeks before the premiere and buy tickets?

Not me, lol. Eh, I'm going to the midnight showing. That'll be fun. I can't wait to see Anakin's transformation into Darth Vader.

The trailer was awesome.

I can't believe they won't leave, even though it's the wrong theater.

I guess I'm not "super cool," huh?

I will probably see a lunch time showing the day it opens. For Episode II, my paralegal and I walked in opening day with no wait.

Star Wars fans are very much like U2 fans-never satisfied no matter what.
Basically depriving themselves of happiness.

I don't know. I'm going whether it's good or bad. I really don't care what the critics say about it, because I've been waiting since the first trilogy to see how this all wraps up in the end. I was almost tempted to buy the novelization, but I don't want to spoil the surprise (eh, like I don't know what's going to happen).

I'd have to agree with you, Iskra, lol. I didn't like Episode II at first, but it's growing on me. And I absolutely hate Jar Jar.... (I hope he gets killed off...I'm mean, lol)

My sister went to the midnight showing of "Phantom Menace" and a bunch of people were there dressed in Star Wars costumes, swinging lightsabers around. I mean, I like Star Wars, but .... weird, lol. I wouldn't say I'm that much of a fanatic...

...U2 being the exception, of course.

Episode 1 was a unique experience. A full generation had gone by before a new set of Star Wars movies was done.

Frankly, only Episode V was able to meet the expectations for the series.

I went to the opening night of The Phantom menace, and some fans showed up in full costume. We had a few Darth Vaders and stormtroopers and so on. And these guys acted out these star wars games and it was very very silly. I am a casual fan so it took my by surprise just how far some of these fans are taking it. But i guess its ok to have a bit of fun, but at the time i felt like i was watching a freak show.

I am pretty sure that Episode III will be good.

Maybe you should go back and read the scripts for the original trilogy.

The quality of the films have very little to do with what's on the page. You can't possibly judge the end result without seeing the visuals, the actors performances, and the music.

I don't know why one would want to read a screenplay before seeing a film. How is that an enjoyable experience, even if what you read is good?

Just watched the Clone Wars cartoon DVD. Not bad, got to see General Grievous who is quite the badass.

Poor Anakin is so misunderstood, childhood in slavery, then entrusted to a cult to raise him and had no father, no wonder he has so many issues.
