I want a light saber...

I have now seen Star Wars Episode III - Revenge of the Sith twice. I was so excited Friday night when I saw it for the first time. I was boucing up and down ever so slightly, while shaking my fists in amazement. I had the biggest smile on my face as the theme music began and I read the background for the beginning of the story as it scrolled up the screen. Elyow'eynay and Table of Stone joined me.

The story was absolutely wonderful. It ties all the Star Wars movies together very nicely, and Lucas's attention to detail is amazing. The acting wasn't wonderful, but there were a few scenes where the actors really came through. (I almost wanted to cry a few times, but I didn't.) I have to agree with someone who wrote a letter to the editor of TIME magazine, though. He said that although Lucas was able to present his vision more precisely with today's technology, he wasn't able to make it as real. I feel that this statement applies mainly to the various surface setting shots (which from a distant look very digital). On the other hand, the light saber fights, as Elyow'eynay stated, were much more real than IV, V, and VI.

Overall, the movie was wonderful, and the darkest one yet. You almost get a real bad gut feeling while watching the movie progress, because you know the story...you know what is going to happen. It is just a matter of watching it happen.

I would say more...but I don't want to spoil anything for anybody. So...go see it, and may the force be with you. :-)

I mean...what can I say. The only time that being evil feels so good. The lightsabers in this one and the figting was awesome to the max. One of the main drawing points. Besides the fact that ever since i was probably 8 years old when my dad made me and my brother watch these, and I became hooked, I have always wondered....what made Darth Vader..Darth Vader. And now I know and it makes 4, 5 , and 6 just that much better. Oh its awesome! I was like you...clenching my fists, shouting, jumping up and down "STAR WARS!!! SWEEEEET!"

So go see it, and beware of the dark side of the force. For Fear leads to Anger, Anger leads to Hate, Hate....Leads to Suffering!

Wow I mean Star Wars fanatics are rating this movie. So as an impartial viewer ( i neither love nor hate Star Wars)I must say that this movie is worth seeing. I'm not sure what captures you because if you know anything about star wars you know what is going to happen in the end and that is sort of disappointing. However, the drama and the fighting and YODA!!! My personal favorite...makes the movie just wonderful. Its a must..go see it!

You make me happy! I can see you jumping up and down ever so slightly and clenching your fists! Erm . . . yeah. Just wanted to say hey, and such. Oh, I guess I could tell you who this is. But that might ruin the fun. I do, however, think you have tons of free time. ;)
