  • Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith

    Allrighty, I've got my ticket to the premiere, it is now 180910LMAY05. At 190001LMAY05 I'll be sitting in the cinema watching Star Wars a good ten-fifteen hours before the rest of you :)

    I love living in Australia sometimes.

    Supposed to be one hell of a ride. Kevin Smith of Clerks fame, and a HUGE Star Wars fan had a private screening (at Cannes I think) and said some profanely glowing words of praise about it..."Fcuking awesome" or something like that

      the circle is now complete....

      i know this is sad, but despite being 34 my phone has an 'imperial theme tune' ringtone, darth vader breathing for text messages and lightsaber keypad tones.

      i shall now sit in the shed for being a sad git.

          Not quite as big a fan of Star Wars as when Empire Strikes Back was in the theatres, but I am clinging to a strange notion that a chap, calls himself .44 hollowpoint is known as Ian Mcdiarimid IRL...

              "Revenge of the Sith has won mixed reviews from critics, with some saying it shows Lucas back in top form after the first two deadly dull episodes of the prologue, while others have dismissed it as flat and futile."

                  IMHO, the film is awesome. The action was great, the pace was just right, Hayden Christiansen was actually pretty good. There were no cringe-worthy scenes (like in Episode 2), and all in all, I give it 4 stars, plus 1/2 a star for being star wars :) I'd rate it up with the origionals.... almost. Not enough characters to quite make it though.

                  Go see it. General Grievious is cool. Oh yeah, best thing is that Jar Jar utters not a word during the whole thing.

                    I heard about Jar Jar's non-appearance. May I have an anticipatory snicker of delight? *heh heh* Actually, I was hoping somebody would lightsabre him into Gungan steaks.
                    The biggest fight I am going to have tomorrow is keeping our IT guy's mouth shut. He is going to see it tonight.
                    Hey, how many people here were old enough to see the original in the theater?
                    I wasn't old enough for the first release in 1977, just the 3rd release in 1979.

                      I was born in 83 :) I was into star wars ever since I was little, and the re-releases in the 90's reinforced if bigtime.

                        I saw the original at the drive in. Then i saw it at a regular theater, then i saw it about a dozen other times at the theater...then they invented the VCR, and i saw it about 100 freakin' times.

                        LOL...i know that movie line for line, even now. ;)

                          When I was a kid, I simply could not believe that something so friggin cool even existed. I was particulary obsessed with the Millenium Falcon's quad gun turrets.
                          A perfectly normal thing for a 5 year old I think

                            Two questions.

                            1. Does Jar-Jar die as rumored?

                            2. Is Christopher Lee/Count Dooku severly underused in this episode as well?

                              Jar-Jar doesn't say a freakin' word(thank god)
                              Anakin cuts Dooku a new heiney hole.

                              LOL.
