    Just got back.

    Good movie. Very good movie.

    One thing that surprised me was how important the Cartoon Network's "Clone Wars" series was to this story. If you haven't seen it, you'll miss out on a lot of plot points in "Revenge of the Sith", especially where General Grievous (hack, wheeze) is concerned.

    I loved it. Great fights and a fantastic job by the cast.

    I think when you are seeing a big movie like this its awesome to go to those 12:01 showings. The crowd is just into it and it makes it pretty cool.

    It's equally cool to go see a movie that's so bad, people get up and leave. Hilarious!

    I thought it was great on the whole. George Lucas should never ever write any love dialog again for the rest of his life, though.

    Some cool "cameos" (though not played by their original actors, of course, since alot of them have passed).

    I worked as a projectionist over the summers when I was in college; they actually paid me to attend those "screening parties" to make sure nothing was wrong with the film and sign off an "inspection report" that certified the film wasn't spliced incorrectly and that the condition was satisfactory.

    By far, my favorite job that I've ever had.

    As for "Episode III: Revenge of the Sith", I was one of the idiots who lined up at midnight down at Newport on the Levee. Absolutely loved it.

    I thought there were several scenes that were just flat-out better than anything Lucas has ever directed before, and I thought this movie (for the first time in the new trilogy) succeeded because it grounded itself in questions of good and evil as opposed to the admittedly boring political squabbling that have tainted the last two films.

    I plan on seeing it again at some point. That's something I really haven't said in a while about a movie.

    Best of the first 3. The only part of the movie I didn't like was the cheesy nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo by Vader. Kudos for Lucas for not letting Jar Jar Binks have one single line in the movie. I wish that he would keep making Star Wars movies kinda like James Bond movies. They never get old and tons of people love them.

    I agree. I had a hard time keeping from laughing at that.

    I didn't see any reason to.

    Lucas and Spielberg both said that this was a tearjerker and that many would cry at it.

    I haven't seen the movie yet, but I've been reading the book. It is a very tragic and emotional story. I'll probably cry, but then I cry at everything.

    Like father like son.

    Mark Hammill's "Nooooooooooooo!" line in The Empire Strikes Back does it's best to derail the scene it is in as well (can't though, just too awesome a revelation moment).
