That Sith games a little interesting too. It's boasting it is better than the KOTOR and Jedi Knight series combined, which is a pretty big boast.

Oh, and for those who can't afford GC and have a copy of BF1942 go download the Galactic Conquest. It's fun, and no Jedi are in it all. Just Imperial verses Rebel action.

I watched Episode 1 and 2 tonight, though. And played the Star Wars CCG. Aww yeah.

Did anyone see that Star Wars: Clone Wars marathon saturday? Man, over 2 1/2 of some of the best animated action. If they had edited it together as one movie and released it on the big screen..that would kick so much ass.

Yes, I did watch the marathon. It was excellent. I liked how they stopped it at the beginning of the third episode rather than going into it.

I might be going to see the movie Saturday night. No, wait, not "might". I must go see the movie Saturday Night.

Chyort, I don't even know where my local cinema is anymore  frown
Probably overran with Chavs anyway.
Oh well, if I can't simulate a real lightsaber (real as in one that slices people's limbs off and burns holes in just about anything) to hack scare them off, then I could always try and simulate a vibroblade  evil laugh

Over the past week or so my brother and I have watched the original trilogy (as good as always) and Episode I (somehow worse than I remember), and we plan on watching Episode II on Wednesday and Clone Wars on Thursday, leading to a Friday Ep III viewing (he has the day off of school).  I think this is the first time I've been excited about new Star Wars since before TPM.  I plan on being disappointed.

I read an article about the film where George boasts that in this film there will be more Planets, Lightsaber duels, space & Land battles than in any of the other films.

He didn't say anything about the acting though, hehe.

Seeing it at 1:00pm on Friday in Ballarat's best cinema. Wall-rumbling speaker action. I've got a $20 bet with my cousin that we'll hear at least three people ragging on the movie on our way out, reguardless of how good it is, what a sucker.

From all the previews i've seen; which, admittantly isn't many, it seems like it's going to be pretty action packed. And i mean, nearly every single Jedi has to die; that has to account for some mindless brutality, right?

Action packed? You ain't kidding, Kashykk being invaded, battle of Coruscant, 6 Jedi Lightsaber Duels and the Birth of the Empire & Vader.

WOW!
Best of the prequels
Natallie Portman learnt how to act finally
Fits seemlessly with episode 4, the sets have even begun to look like them (in a good way, not a 1970s way)

Best of the prequels, dont wait for the video  big grin

Revenge of the Sith

Okay, let me set this out for you people:-

It works.

There's some clunky dialogue, there's an over-reliance of CG during fight scenes, Darth Vader's "NOOoooooooo!" scream is just a little too silly, and it feels a little rushed towards the end.

Yet it works.

The Obi-Wan/Anakin fight is absolutely insane. It's faster than Ep1, it's more chaotic then... well... anything, and it JUST. KEEPS. GOING. Totally awesome.

Yoda takes no shit from anything. Kick ass.

Anakin gets totally fucked up. It's quite graphic.

It's never hilarious, but there's more than a few smirks.

I loved the opening. Those drums were cool.

Palpatine is actually a little silly sounding sometimes.

Poor Mace.

I'll think I'll be splaying my fingers out at people and screaming 'UNLIMITED POWEEEEEEER!' for days.

Dooku's appearnce was brief, but cool enough.

Grevious was just bizarre.

All in all, cool. You'll probably enjoy it. It still bears some of the criticism's of the rest of the series (wooden acting, clunky dialogue during romance scenes), but you can forgive them. Well, I did.

...

UNLIMTED POWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!

A-

@Nerd: Yeah, well.. you mispelled my name! So we're even. Unless you were being ironic. In which case you double win. Damn.

Well, I've seen all the Clone Wars episodes, up until the kidnapping of Palpatine and the invasion of Coruscant...
Only one thing remains, this film, I must see, no power in the Galaxy will stop me. *John Williams musical sting*

Just got back from the midnightie-thingy, and what do I do? I check into PEEL... What a dork I am...
The movie? Kick. Ass. Muchly. There was uttering of the m-word, but only once, and though it stung like hell, I was able to keep my wrath concealed. The rest was non-stop greatness (except from the "No, I love you more...yadda-yadda"-bit). Anakin gets pretty fucked, and the leaked shots of his mangled body proved to be the real deal.

Well, as it turns out we got to see it last night (Well, this morning, technically) at one past midnight at the local cinema here.

Now, let just get this off my chest. Our cinema fucking sucks. During the entire movie, the picture was blurry, and one of the speakers had blown, so it was giving off a crackly sound during the whole thing. Thank fuck we're still seeing it in Ballarat tomorrow, or i'd be really pissed.

Now, onto the movie itself;
Overall:
Exceeds expectations, and i can't wait to see it at a real cinema. It was worth staying up until 3:00am on a work night to watch.

Nix, I concur, but you forgot to add the bolding and the sidescrolling.  Observe:

Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Anyway, a definitive classic.  No real faults, tied with Empire.  If it weren't for nostalgia and Harrison Ford, it would be unquestioned top dog.

Full review coming when I'm not drunk with exhaustion and euphoria.

Dooku trained Grievous in his lightsaber skills, and he did more scary stuff to the Jedi in the Clone Wars, he was able to dodge any Force malarky the Jedi threw at him.

I saw the midnight showing last night. I guess my little review might have to be in spoiler-vision:


So that's my little review, I normally wouldn't be that excited about it, but it's one of the few movies I've seen in a long time that made really feel happy.

I saw it last night as well:

I didn't think it was corny and it definitely wasn't written for kids, like the obnoxious first episdoe, and HENCE the PG 13 rating, instead of PG like all the other films.

Episode Three might have just become my new favorite Star Wars movie...

Spoiler-time

I can't believe he did that, I'm still in awe. George Lucas certainly grew balls to end the series the proper way.

Oh and Nixorbo:
