I've heard that it was much better than the previous two, even counting the fact that you sorta KNOW whats going to happen.

Since I had work today, there was no way I was going for the midnight showing, that was for the LOTR movies only =)

Palpatine is actually Darth Sidious!!! I read a Time article on the movie where they labeled that a spoiler, so apparently some people actually havn't figured it out yet. :P :P :D

Rofl!!! I recognized the name right away because for awhile I was a bit of a Star Wars fan - because of a friend of mine who loved star wars, and her mom bought us these little star wars coloring books one time, and they had "Emperor Palpatine". And i thought that was such a funny name that I remembered it and thought it was cool that I remembered that king of trivia.

Actually, though, my biggest star wars phase was around episode 1. That's right. For a little kid who grew up hearing "Luke, I am your father," and used to watch RotJ for the ewoks, the first couple of Star Wars really weren't that exciting. Episode 1, on the other hand, had Darth Maul. And that lightsaber fight, combined with that awesome Duel of the Fates choir, made the movie cool. Substance? No, not really. But cool? Heck, yeah. I had nothing that I was really looking up to begin with, so i wasn't disappointed.

I love playing those tracks from episode 1 and 2 on my surround sound system.

John Williams rocks!

Just got back from Ep III it was...........good.
Even saw a bombastic trailer of Narnia and I think that will be the next gigantic movie.

The only bummer for me was that they didn't show the Narnia trailer! I was sooooooooo looking forward to seeing it on the b ig screen! Anyway, ROTS was totslly awesome dude! i loved everything aabout it. Very dark obviously, but extremely emotional and powerful to me. Alot of spritural overtones. Reminded me alot of Return of the King. I though lucas wrapped everything up very neatly and the way the battle scenes played out in tandems the end was way too cool-along with another important happy/sad event! loved it-plan to go see it again in a day or too! Any chattanoogians wanna go? Peace,David.

Saw it last night.

I was pleasantly suprised, it was FANTASTICLY better than the previous two.

Much longer than I thought it would be, VERY dark and visceral at times.

I thought the main thing that made this so much better was the storyline and script.

Finally, there was a noticiable charater arc, and scenes that required the actors to ACT, with dialoauge that was more than two lines.

Granted, it still had its moments of awkwardness, but on the whole, I was very pleased on its quality.

Ah! And the dual of the fates choir makes an encore appearance, YAY!

See this movie. Honest. It was not a waster of $9.50

Just saw it for the second time! Just as powerful and awesome as the first! But what a bummer again-went to a different theater where I heard they had showed the "Narnia" clip, and we got there about 5min. late, so either we missed it or they didn't show it. That sucked, but once the LUCAS LTD. logo came on, I forgot all about it. I love the thunderous tribal drums in the background as the starcruiser come in focus to open the movie! In fact, the music is awesome throughout! This time I concentrated more on the effects than the story and was blown away by how much I missed the first time! And the last hour or so was still incredibly emotional-even knowing all that would happen. I was really impressed with Hayden Christensson(sp?)'s performance this time. Yea, a few of his lines with Padme are still pretty wooden, but his slow and calculated dissent into the dark side is handled with ease and total belivabvility. It will be hard to beat this movie for my 2005 movie of the year, but who knows-I'm going to see "Crash" this week-and I've heard it's great! Peace,David.P.S. And then there's of course TLTWATW on Dec. 9th!!!!

Great SFX, completely atrocious script!!

It's really saying something when you can make Samuel L. Jackson look bad but somehow George Lucas has managed it. The only actors to get any sort of emotion into their parts were Ian McDiarmuid as Palpatine - who hammed it up wonderfully - and Yoda(!)

Haydn Christiansen, ooh don't get me started... :x

"You're so beautiful."

"That's only because I'm so in love."

"No, it's because I'm so in love with you."


AAARRGGHHH!!!! If you cut the guy he'd probably bleed sap!
