Update:

"Destined to be one of the biggest blockbusters ever, Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith blasted off with $158.4 million since Thursday. Overseas, Revenge of the Sith opened wider than any other movie in history, in 105 countries, amassing $145.5 million. All told, the $303.9 million worldwide start after five days stands as an all time high, eclipsing The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King's $250.1 million."

Great idea, though....why would anyone be suspicious of (or capable of singling out) someone going to the movie in costume/mask?....millions of fans are.

How stupid can you get? If the cops around there are anything like they are around here, they couldn't catch the culprit if he was wearing his mask in a nudist colony.

Just saw the movie. It was good. It wasnt awsome. I would classify it as a 4 out of 5. It was good to clear up some of the loose ends from episode 4. IE how Darth Vader got into the suit, how the twins where seperated and how they where selected to the famillies they where, etc. What I really did not have a good taste for was the implication of skywalker killing the children. Honestly I would have prefered that not even been hinted at.

On a lighter note I saw two young kids in the theater. One wearing his attempt at a jedi robe and the other had a plastic vader mask. I think the vader kid watched the movie wearing the mask. How cute is that.

Agreed - I thought it was a little much to insinuate that Anakin slaughter the 'younglings'. Sure, we assume Darth is capable of such, but we don't really need confirmation, imho.

I can't image wearing a mask for that whole time - lol! Cute indeed.

I finaly broke down and shelled out the $50 to go see it with my wife. It was a good movie, I like it. I was a bit irritated by someone else in the audience... so I'll have to watch it again when it hits DVD before I can make a final judgement on it. But for the most part I enjoyed the story and really like the revealing of Vader... right up until he got off the table... did anyone else think to themselves... when did vader become frankenstein? Maybe thats what lucas was going for? I dunno... i was stoked and enjoying the transformation... until that. it completely ruined it for me lol.

Didn't get the Frankenstein reference; do you mean about his posture? Movements? What?

the way he ripped his shackles off, and stepped forward like his legs were stiff as boards and weighed 100 pounds each. Just instantly reminded me of the old Frankentein movies when he first comes to life and tears himself free and walks for the first time...
