i went to a midnight showing last night (BTW it was my girlfriends idea not mine, i didn't see the point, and didnt want to feel like a nerd). There weren't a ton of people dressed up...one guy had a vadar mask, others just had robes on, and some more just had toy light sabors they were playing with. The thing i was suroprised about was how many younger kids were there. Not because it was PG-13, but because they wouldnt be getting out until 3 in the morning on a school night

Well, I finally dragged my arse into work; I got in at 3:30am and had no problem staying awake.

I'd give it 4.25/5 stars ; -.5 for Lucas' dialogue writing and -.25 for something indescribable that won't let me give it a 4.5.

Ep 3 was, by far, the best of the prequels. This ranks up there w/ 4,5 and 6 - and a must see if you're a fan. Don't let the Epi 1 and 2 deter you - you need to see this in the theater.

Sure enough, it did deserve the PG13 rating, although not really until the last 20 minutes.

Tons of great lightsaber battles; Yoda got to kick more butt than he has before and Obi Wan and Anakin showed some mad Jedi skillz, yo.

Overall, action packed, excellent 'flow' (no overly long plot building scenes), and effects that show we're not too far at all from 'seamless integration'.

Oh - and Obi Wan got to deliver the 'I've got a bad feeling about this.' line.

Oh#2 - Lucas himself has a cameo - he's a blue faced alien in a hallway that Anakin passes by - look quick, or miss him.


My idiot self remembered my tix, but forgot my digicam, and of course, I was the one everyone else thought 'would bring his' - so we got no pix. :| I do have some online from some friends' trip to the Celebration III : Qui Gon went with us last night in full gear - with his new lightsaber I don't have pics of - and managed to get himself on the news, battling with Darth Maul.

Anyways - here's the Qui Gon costume :





We also got into a local paper; perhaps that pic will end up scanned and in my hands.

You're still reading? GO NOW - SKIP WORK - SEE EP 3!

I agree its better then the last 2, but i wouldnt go so far as saying it ranks with empire strikes back or the original star wars (it will never be A New Hope to me). Return of the JEdi...maybe.

I liked it enough to rank it w/ 4,5,6; I wouldn't rank it above any of those, though - I mean, there was no Han Solo?!
