    So... now that you've seen it, what did you think?????

    just got out of the midnight showing, and i have to say that was the best star wars movie ever. my fiance cried three times. i really felt the emotion in this one as well. i thought the acting was the best of the three prequels, and the way palpatine goaded anakin along his path to the dark side was completely plausible to me.

    During the funeral I was thinking, "Show Boss Nass, show Boss Nass, do it . . . come on . . . there he is!"

    Best ever? Oh, hmm, I really liked it, though a lot of the Anakin/Padme dialogue made me shake my head. I did clench my fist in celebration at the slaying of the Younglings. If only they had been wearing those silly helmets at the moment, too. Sam Jackson's performance kept taking me out of the movie, too. Holy zombie Jesus, was I glad to see him get taken out the way he did.

    That aside, I was happy and it was all I had expected. No big surprises since I have been rolling in the spoilers for a long while. Definitely the best of the three prequels (though that may not be saying much to some people, they know who they are), but I cannot call it the best SW film. That's still 4 and 5 (it switches) for me, though I pretty much enjoy all the films and have no problems watching any of them.

    i also just got back from the midnight showing. i have to say that i am speechless. there was so much to take in. but i will say that i was very pleased with the way this movie played out. it was def. the most emotional out of the 3, but that was a given. it is the ESB of the prequel trilogy. i was also glad to see that the dialouge was better in this than the other 2 films. it wasn't great, but it has improved. the part of the movie where the clone troopers are given order 66 and attack the jedi, is amazing and when they show Yoda durning the scene, you can just feel the pain he feels. quite simply my fav. scene in the movie.

    i'm seeing the movie another 3 times later on today, so i will have more to express after fully taking it all in. it was good to see Vader again and hear his voice.

    I loved this movie. So much to absorb on the first viewing, but still quite the experience. I did not sit back once during the film, for I was so engulfed in what I was seeing before me.
    Going to go back and watch it again later today.....perhaps will catch some things I missed. Overall very happy with this movie.

    So so good.

    Loved it. Thought it might be more emotional than it was. I found the scnes with Anakin's mother mroe moving in Episodes I and II. But I sure got goosebumps throughout the movie, amazing stuff. Will be back to see it again soon.

    Wasn't so keen on Grievous though - he didn't seem to add anything to the movie at all.

    Awesome. Quite simply, it was amazing.

    The movie had a much faster pace than AOTC (fell asleep twice trying to watch that one this week), and I found it to be more artsy than the other tow. Great panning shots, etc.

    I love the Frankenstein homage at the end with Vader. I was caught off guard when he let out that wail, but I guess I just wasn't expecting the number one bad dude of all-time to do that. I love it, though.

    And the twin suns scene on Tatooine? Great stuff.

    I'm going again tomorrow!

    Just got out myself....Hhhmmph. Where to start.

    This is a tough one to swallow...and I think I'm gonna need a couple more viewings! Initial reaction: Looked amazing! However, I had no emotional reactions what-so-ever. Too much CG was very distracting, The scenes passed faster than gas from a short order cook(also very distracting and the reason why I think I felt no emotional responses), and story..the story...

    I'm gonna need a couple more viewings.

    thats Lucas's trademark with new villians. i enjoyed the scenes with him, but there was something missing. ah, but thats what the deleted scenes are for.

    AWESOME!
    Excellent movie! It brought back the magic. Loved the humor in the beginning and the tragedy at the end. Most of the complaints I have seem to be over cut scenes. Where was Yoda arriving on Degobah? How about actually HEARING qui-gon? talking to Yoda? Where was Shak TI? The making of book shows her being killed by Grevious in one scene and by ANikin in another. Yet, she was never shown. How about Luminara?

    And why did ANi continue to turn after attacking MAce when Palp tells him right there that HE does NOT know the power to keep people from dying? Shouldn't that have been enough to stop him?wasn't R2's memory wiped? Why does force lightning deform the emperor? Didn't bother ANi or Luke. WHat gives? How come Obi "doesn't seem to remember R2" in EP IV? Why is Obi so old after only 19 years? How can Leia remember her mother? She died when I was very young? Uh, yeah..a BABY!
    I think Hayden did a great job.

    Oh, and for fighting style I don't think it topped The Phantom Menace. All the sabre stuff was almost too fast.

    But I liked the fact there was relationship between the characters, so that they could talk to each other, that is what makes it better, like it the OT.
