Star Wars Episode III


Recommended Posts

Movie was extremely well done. Lucas is a Genious. This movie was very sad and although I knew what was coming (from watching all the SW Movies) it still saddened me. There were a few funny moments which I liked, like when the Kick R2D2 over in the beginning. Dang, I even wanted Anakin to turn good so badly even though I knew his fate. There were a lot of strong scenes, and the movie was non stop action. So much to take in and I loved the movie. Can't wait until it comes out for DVD/VHS.

I liked it a lot; it had it's bad moments, but there was a lot that it did well. The temptation of Anakin was done well, the battle between Obi-Wan and Anakin was what I anticipated (although I think it was overshadowed as a "moment" by other events in the movie). The ending was perfect, although I wish they had done the movie's pacing differently. What I mean is that I wish that they wrapped the whole Clone Wars stuff earlier and had this movie end with the rise of the Rebellion, not the separation of the Skywalker twins.

I really enjoyed it, everything was finally tied together and it was sweet to see how it happened. But I feel that it was a little too fast paced. Every 20-30 seconds they were cutting to another scene. If they main plot lines of this film were expanded upon they couldve used it as the last 2 movies rather than practiaclly wasting Episode I and II.

poorly done...had the potential for a great movie, but Lucas ruins it by putting in too many dull, repetitive action scenes...if he had focused more on the storyline, it could have been the best star wars movie ever, instead it's a piece of garbage

And once again, with the exception of Ewan McGregor and the guy who played Emperor Palpatine the acting is lousy...granted, the original trilogy had some of the worst acting in movies ever (there are few worse actors than Mark Hamil and Carrie Fisher is an awful actress as well), but that was just about the only flaw in those movies...this one the acting of Hayden Chrisiansen and Natalie Portman turned a so-so movie into a crap movie

still better than Episode I or II, but that's not saying anything...it's depressing because if it wasn't for Lucas' need to be overexcessive with the action scenes and watering down the rest of the movie, this would have been an instant classic

ranking of the star wars movies:

1. The Empire Strikes Back

2. Return of the Jedi

3. A New Hope

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Revenge of the Sith

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Attack of the Clones

 

 

 

 

6. Phantom Menace

Why does everyone think the acting was bad? It was not bad at all. I liked it...in all 6 movies. Why does everyone think the actingg was horrible?>

Bad accents, no chemistry, bad dialogue, bad direction.

It was decent, which is more than I could say for the last two. At least I could say I enjoyed the movie on the whole, rather than having to cringe from scene to scene, hoping for a good battle to rescue the movie....

 

The acting, while still not up to what I'd like, was a little better. Lucas did a lot of things better this time around actually. Didn't have to sit through long ponderous political speeches, pointless dialogue, or long horribly written high-school romance poems.

 

One thing I missed from the old trilogy is actually caring about a huge battle, e.g., Hoth, the Death Star attack, the space battle during Return of the Jedi... Because in these 3 movies, the massive battles were nothing but robots & clones. You usually had no one to root for, & were just trying to figure out which ships were on which side. Effects were great, just didn't care about them.

 

Anyhow, I'd put it just below Return of the Jedi in the movie rankings. Best of the new trilogy but below the first 3.

 

 

.... & nah Bradcore the "nooooo" didn't bother me all that much. It was a little hokey, but then again Star Wars is supposed to be a little hokey.

Ok. I dunno, that just sounded really akward. However, for the sake of argument, let's reverse the role of Vader and Luke the that famouse scene from The Empire Strikes Back and see how it works out, shall we.

 

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Yeah, I know putting the original at #4 is blasphemy, but here's how I look at it. To really have the whole series "fit" you have to ignore a whole lot of dialogue from A New Hope, and (at least to me) Empire marks the beginning of the "epic" we know Star Wars to be today. Combine that with the fact that aside from the Death Star starfighter battle and the Vader Obi-Wan battle you have a really underwhelming movie and I can't really fall in love with it like others have.

Overall, I was neither displeased nor impressed with this film; it was just average.

 

I was not too happy with the acting in general (save, perhaps, for McGregor). The dialogue was not my cup of tea, either. But I wasn't expecting much from a Lucas solo effort -- he is not as good a screenwriter or director as he thinks he is.

 

The film was OK, up until the last 20 minutes or so... and then it turned into a bad soap opera. It didn't feel like 'Star Wars'; it was bizarre. Worst scene in the movie was the scene where Vader is "born" -- straight out of "Frankenstein". I swear, it made me shake my head in disbelief; it was bad.

 

Another thing that bothered me was Lucas' decision to make the final scenes so graphic, earning the movie a PG-13 rating. It was not a wise decision in my opinion. It doesn't help the story to spend 10 minutes watching Anakin being burned alive, or Padm? in agonizing labor. If anything, it makes the whole saga (as a package -- which is forthcoming) hard to market to the younger fans. (But of course, that won't stop the toy companies, and Lucas, from doing so anyhow.)

 

Regardless... I'm still a fan of the Classic Three, and I'll recommend those over the Prequels any day.

To me introducing the Han Solo character made half the movie for me. The way you first see him & Chewie in the cantina, they created one of the greatest movie characters ever. Plus Alec Guiness is terrific. The effects vs ROTS are no contest, but as much as I enjoyed ROTS, the characters are all cardboard cutouts. There's no one to root for. The wookies are a pointless add-on, the clueless Jedis go down in like 10 seconds.... The Clone Wars cartoons did a much better job of showing off Jedi pwnage.

 

I dunno, I just think the character interaction in SW and ESB topped anything the new movies offered. But to each his own. :thumbup

Come to think of it, I agree with you. It wasn't needed at all. I didn't need that image in my head tainting one of the coolest movie villians ever.

 

 

 

Beetle I agree, WTF was with the labor scenes? Was that necessary? Stupid robo-nurse delivering each baby.... We could've gotten the "Luke" and "Leia" names a lot less painfully.
