Wow! I just got back from buying my tickets, guys! It was SO MUCH BETTER THAN I EXPECTED!!!!

First, I pulled right up in the front of the theater! I was running late for a hair appointment, so I was getting really nervous. I practically RAN into the lobby. Imagine my JOY at seeing there was NO LINE!!! The girl at the counter was even dressed up in a Regal Cinemas uniform for the big event! Then I realized I didn't have any cash. *GULP* This is not going to end well, I thought. I felt such relief when she said they accepted credit cards!!! Whew! I asked for FOUR tickets for Saturday at 10. ONE LITTLE PROBLEM... Was that 10 AM or 10 PM, she wanted to know. I took a deep breath, finally, and unclenched my fists and replied, as calmly as possible, "AM." The conclusion left a little to be desired; I had to sign a ticket stub instead of a receipt. Then I was off to my hair cut. What a great night! Lucas did it again!!!

This movie was much better than I expected.

I totally agree with nerdo, this is almost tied with Return of the Jedi as my favorite StarWars movie.

It absolutely blew me away.

@rage: Go check out the end of Season 1 of Clone Wars.  Grievous wipes the floor with ... 5(?) Jedi, 2 of which were on the Council.

Speaking of, how did Captain Forehead escape that fight?  I haven't seen any of Season 2.

One of my favorite bits (in Ep3) was a background shot in the opening battle - when one of the Clone Pilots gets shot down, you see his body floating in the debris.

Very, very good film.  I'll have to reflect on it and see it again to really compare it to the original trilogy, but I thought it was very good and towards the end I even had a tear or two in my eye.  This is definitely what the previous prequels should have been.

@Melll: I had access to that video for a while. But I didn't see it before I saw it on the big screen.
I saw it again yesterday in the big 'un. Still haven't seen the leaked version.

Leading you all astray, I ask- how long was Han Solo in that carbonite? Some dudes are arguing over it at some other forum, and I'm getting sick of it. It'd be nice with something to back up the information. Thanks, peoples.

And then go back to the Ep.3 goodness.

Well, according to the official timeline, Jedi takes place about a year after Empire, so there you go.

It's official, at the largest mass of SW fans on the web, ROTS has dethroned ESB as the fan favorite. Note: This obviously didn't happen after TPM and AOTC.

I saw this movie at 12:01, and it blew me the fuck away. I was in tears and in laughter in so many places. Some of the lines made my hair stand on end, with their sheer intensity; or should I say their "POOOOOOWWWWWAHHHHH UNLEEMITAD POOOOOWAAAHHH"? Obi-wans post-Anakin's legs and arm speech made me lose it as did the Order 66. I had no idea it would have such an effect on me. Ki-Adi Mundi went down like such a warrior. The audience and I gasped in horror as the Arc troopers gunned down Aayla Secura and fried her corpse. A mother covered her childs ears and eyes during the temple raid and Anakin frying in the hot sand of mustafar and being operated on by the cold malicous hands of the medical droids and the intercut scenes his dying wife giving birth to the galaxies last hope.
     The multiple endings put ROTK to shame.  They were more efficient and much more memorable and didn't make the audience lose patients and feel more like getting up and leaving then feeling what the characters feel. The success of this movie comes down to the ability to feel what the characters feel with such empathy. No other Prequel could achieve such a feat as could no other Original trilogy movie.

::doesn't listen to hobojobo::

I meant to mention that ending sequence - the birth of Episodes 4-6: great editing there.

Anyone else agree that Obi-Wan did to Young Vader what Darth Maul should have done to him in Episode 1?

If Lucas were really cool, he'd have returned the nods given to him in RotK by calling Planet Mt. Doom Planet Orodruin.

On the face of it, yes. But, then again, you could see both as examples of the most crippling of Sith weaknesses: arrogance. Maul thought Obi-Wan was as good as done for. Vader thought his uber-ness could overcome simple battle logic. Hell, the fact that Obi-Wan bascially told him exactly what would happen if he tried indicates that Ben was completely ready for it, and Anakin should have known better.

Long story short: Sith is teh dumb.

I still want to know why the Jedi seemed to get nuked so easy.  I mean, the Twi'lek one didn't even get to draw her sabre.

I still think that one Padawan kicked ass.

Actually, Han Solo was in Carbonite waaaaay longer than just a year. I believe it is either 3 years or 5 if you count things like Shadows of The Empire and some other EU stuff.

Right near the start. Obi-Wan said it while he was zipping around in his fighter. Can't remember the exact circumstance... though I bet it was just as they were about to do something dangerous.

Episode III rocked.
It's my second favorite, only topped by ROTJ.

That whole Jedi killing scene was a lot...
I jumped out of my seat when I saw Plo Koon get killed, he's my favorite jedi.

Also, at the end of the movie I yelled "Wow, I bet there's going to be a sequel to this movie!"    tongue

They've taken note of his Plo Koon's popularity. Hopefully he will get his deleted scenes back. He got a few kills before croaking and three lines. One during a council meeting, another when all the minor jedi are giving their reports and I heard rumors of a "Holy shit" type of line during his 66 scene. I think that last one's false due to the lack of dialog in those montages.

I don't agree with you Slacky, I think it's 3 years. The DS2 must have taken an age to build, hell they weren't finished with it in ROTJ.

I thought that you were supposed to be some kind of Star Wars trivia expert, Nurdy.  The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi take place three and four years after A New Hope respectively.  Therefore, Jedi takes place one year after Empire.

I re-watched eps 1 and 2 this week (I'm sure I was the only one...) and I noticed a bit of an odd timing thing between the two.  Correct me if I'm wrong (I wasn't paying full attention, it is a boring movie, after all), but wasn't Owen Lars introduced as Anakin's half-brother? As in Shmi married his father and had him in the time between the two movies?  So... how far apart are those movies, because Owen looked about as old as Anakin.  Of course, this whole thing is irrelevant if Shmi isn't acctually Owen's mother. I don't care enough to re-watch the movie, just enough to bring it up on the internet.

Anyhow, saw Ep3 and loved it. I'm not sure yet where it stands in relation to the OT, I'm waiting to see if it just seems really good in comparison to the other prequels or actually is a great SW movie on it's own right.

Also, did they imply that Anakin's 'father' was Palpy's former master? Creepy...

Hmm. I thought they said Anakin had the immaculate conception thing going.  This explains quite a bit about him: no strong male influence until he was around nine years old.

Anyway, I thought that Palpatine's old master
Also, can someone who's read the novel fill me in on the backstory for Grievous?  I'sa li'l confoosed.

Oh, and the impression I got from Ep II was that Owen would be Anakin's step-brother.  Only about ten years passed between I and II as I recall.

I am a little confused though. I mean how long did it take to build the orginal Death Star? I mean construction began at when Leia and Luke are just babies.

Anywho.

Can people recomend the good books from the series. I have read Shadows of the Empire (which i enjoyed). So any recomendations.

Saw it earlier today. Best of the prequels (I actually liked them) second best of the series (after Empire Strikes Back), and the best movie I've seen in 18 months (since Return of the King).


I'd give it a 9.5/10. It does what all good finales do... make me wish that the series would continue.  wink

Did anyone else watch the Opera scene or whatever it was and think, "Yeah, ok Final Fantasy X"?

@Wukong:

To people ragging on the script: having Mace echo almost exactly word-for-word what Palpatine told Anakin in the beginning: genious.  Also, Obi-Wan's final speech to Anakin: good.

Well I say it's 2 or 3 years before ROTJ, to me it makes sense. After all, Luke has changed a lot since his confrontation with Vader. I'm sure training to be a Jedi Knight in Galaxy where you are the only one left is pretty hard, Even for Skywalker. He'd have to look up ancient texts that escaped the Imperial Purge, train with his Lightsaber and force powers more. It makes sense too, Mark Hamil aged a little bit between movies.

Ever since George started fiddling with the movie CANON saying that Stormtroopers were clones, then contradicting that and miticholorians (pardon my Corellian) I've decided to make my own mind up with the time line. I may be wrong, but I don't really care because it the long run it's all fiction.

Great end to a great saga. Did anyone think that the duels (apart from the last one) were short. Dooku's lasts only about 1 and a half minutes. I am a complete darksider so I found it great when

Also did anyone notice the error on the opening scroll. It says two jedi KNIGHTS are sent when obi is a jedi master.
