    Thumbs up Outlook is good for EIII

    I've been reading some reviews (trying to avoid spoilers). So far of the 7 i've seen 7 have given it a thumbs up. They range from steps above the other 2 prequels to masterpiece (Harry Knowles Aint it cool news). I can no longer hold back my excitement for this film. I have had the soundtrack playing in my car since I picked it up on Wednesday. I thought I was excited after C3 but seeing these reviews have taken away my fear of disappointment that marred AOTC pre veiwing excitement. 13 days so close and yet so long.

    Some of the complaints I've read sound like complaints I heard about AOTC and in those instances, I didn't even really find fault with those points anyway. So, this might be a good movie.

    I like to be my own critic when it comes to movies. I've seen movies where everyone gave it thumbs up and I've hated. Same goes the other way where I saw something everyone hated and I loved it. I know I'm going to love this movie, there is no doubt there.

    I normally don't put a whole lot of stock in what critics say but not having seen anyone trash it tells me it is better. So as much as I like the first two I know I will like this one more. The things critics trash like dialogue and acting did bother me. But seeing that these things have improved probably to a point that I won't be disappointed at all. I like using www.rottentomatoes.com since not only do they give you all the reviews in one spot they break up the response. For example TPM 62% approval with an average rating of 6/10 fan post were 68% and the major mass media reviewer gave it 40% with a 5/10. AOTC was 65% (6.5/10), 72%, 39% (5.5/10). Now right now ROTS is at 100% and 8.1/10. Granted there are only 5 entries but you can't beat 100%.

    I loved the most recent version of The Punisher but Entertainment Weekly (which I subscribe to) gave it an F . . . that movie is a solid B or B+ for me.

    I don't put much stock in anything EW reviews. It seems like if it doesn't involve the White Stripes, they rip it.
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.

    The critical reviews I have read (usually skipping the middle, spoiler filled paragraphs) indicate that this, finally, is a return to the Star Wars we all know and love. Rottentomatoes score is 91% so far, which places it on a par with ANH, below ESB, above ROTJ, and far above TPM and ATOC. This is significant because it seems to have become fashionable among critics to bash Lucas.

    I can safely tell you without revealing anything (I wound up getting a few mild spoilers along the way), that GL dovetails everything very well, that he has a lot of tricks up his sleeve to keeps things interesting while you know the basic plot points, and that he has solved the pacing problems of I & II. I swear, people were raving about his directing.

    Also, there were raves about the CGI, and how everything looks so much better in contrast to TPM.

    Most importantly, apparently you finally will realize how much you have, without knowing it, become attached to these characters, and the movie has, get this, a visceral emotional impact.

    I am so stoked to see this. I had to wait 15 years for Star Wars, but I had to wait 21 years for real Star Wars!

    Re: Outlook is good for EIII

    I am attached to these characters and I already know it, otherwise I wouldn't be watching them.

    I read some more reviews last night, many positives with some negative criticisms . . . I still say though, that if a person hated TPM and AOTC that much, it's going to be hard to get into this one. We'll see.
