Okay, I just saw it, and I have to say, it's the best one so far. Not just of the prequel trilogy, but of the entire series. It's just a beautiful movie. Sure, the beginning is a little weak, and there might be some sketchy parts to it, but all in all, it's a beautiful film. It's really a sad and tragic story, but the film is just beautiful. Go see it, it'll be worth it. I promise.

PS Keep in mind that I avoided every single ad and trailer for Star Wars so I could see this movie with the least amount of expectations possible. I'll let a day or two pass for full objectivity.

Just got back from watching it myself. I was pleasantly pleased with how it turned out, though I think that it might rate a close second in the series falling behind Empire Strikes Back.

But it's dam good in its own right.

Anyone else figure out the "secret to immortality" that yoda spoke of and said quigon (obiwan's master) found at the end of the film?

I also found it pretty cool how yoda and the emperor turned out to be polar opposites and their powers kind of "canceled each other out" if you know what I mean.

As far as the spacecraft go, you really see the transition from Republic to Empire starting to take place. The TIE and X-Wing precursors are in the movie, also the forerunner of the Imperial battle cruisers.

How can you avoid watching trailers of movies? I seek them out as you can save a lot of money just watching the trailer; after all, in a lot of cr*p released these days, those 5 scenes were the only bit worth watching anyway.

I'm sure something good will come out of Star Wars...hopefully GL sticking his hand in his pocket and making some films that are risky/a bit more 'challenging'

This is how it all got started for George Lucas .

A young George Lucas fights writer's block while trying to complete his final screenplay for USC Film School. This satire of Star Wars and Shakespeare in Love has Lucas searching for the true origins of the Star Wars saga.

The dialogue is astonishingly feeble, the acting unforgivably wooden. To paraphrase Yoda, the only creature with *truly human dimensions ever since Harrison Ford's cowboy-mechanic Han Solo departed the galaxy: "Bored I am."


Sith is a reminder that in the "Star Wars" saga, there are pockets of brilliance, surrounded by the yawning emptiness of space.

George Lucas' thoughts on the parallels between themes in his latest movie and U.S. foreign policy are becoming more clear. Here are some quotes from Lucas from a press conference yesterday:

+ €œStar Wars is a €œwake-up call€ to Americans about the €œerosion of democratic freedoms under George W. Bush.€
+ €œI didn€t think [the Bush Administration] was going to get quite this close [to the Nixon era]€ in €œsacrificing freedoms in the interests of national security.€
+ €œI hope this doesn€t come true in our country. Maybe the film will awaken people to the situation of how dangerous it is €¦ The parallels between what we did in Vietnam and what we are doing now in Iraq are unbelievable.€
+ €œOne of the main features [of "Sith"] was to tell how the Republic became the Empire.€
+ €œIn terms of evil, one of the original concepts [of Star Wars] was how does a democracy turn itself into a dictatorship€
+ €œThey all seem to happen in the same way with the same issues: Threats from the outside; they need more control; and a democratic body not being able to function properly because everybody€s squabbling.€

Only reason for the EU is more power to compete agains't the US and China.


The EU's roots are in preventing a forth great war between France and Germany (1870, 1914, 1939), and by extension a third great pan-European war. In 1950 The European Coal and Steel Community placed these strategic industries under multi-lateral control, this community evolved via the Treaty of Rome into the EEC which in turn evolved into the EU we know today. It sometimes is hard to see the woods for the trees but the EU has at its core the idea that by binding nations together economically and politically war between them would become impossible.

I didn´t like Ep3 though unlike Eps 1 and 2, it was watchable.

Crappy acting, weak scripting and super-mega-ultra hyping.

But my biggest grippe is: Did they have to explain/show everything?

Ep3´s way of telling everything and not leaving anything as a secret/suprise kills the next 3 films.

No more surprises when: Vader tells Luke he is his son, Kenobi tells Luke that Leia is his sister, Leia ends up with Solo when everyone thought Luke was gonna get her, Yoda´s hidden powers, then Emperor´s hidden powers, Vader´s 90% a cyborg, etc...

Watching Episode III several things jumped out at me:

2. The talk as death being part of life.
3. Coveting the ones you love so much that
there preservation brings you to evil.
4. The commonalities between the Force(Good)and

5. The common fight between good and evil; no

Even though the latest movies are titled episodes " I, II, and III", I don't think the series is designed for you to watch it in order. For best effect you should start with episode IV. That's why Lucas released the movies the way he did I guess.

05-25-2005, 05:27 AM
I'm not convinced that Lucas had any strong coherent plan - he seems to make it up as he goes along. It seems the idea behind Star Wars was 'Hey, lets make a new Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon saturday matinee cliffhanger adventure sci-fi film!', not 'Hey, lets make a film about the rise and fall of an evil empire!". So key bits of the plot, like Luke and Leia being siblings, are more or less ad-libbed on a film-by-film basis...

Lucas said he wanted 3 films, and the middle film became the original trilogy, but where can the Star Wars universe go from Episode 6? The plot has ended, all the bad guys are dead.

i was told GL plotted the star wars theme out back in the 70s , Ep4 was his baby totally & it was the movie that could be made back then that was the most dramatic

the series ends with balance brought back to the galaxy , but the history of star wars goes thousands of years into the past & future from the movie series

he couldnt make the first 3 movies due to technology back in the 70's so i was told

has anyone seen "Once were Warriors" ? if you have , then think about Princess Leia back slapping that storm trooper & knocking him out cold . man to think thats Jake under that suit is a riot

Agreed 100%, except that the "Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon saturday matinee cliffhanger adventure sci-fi film" became a huge commercial success so he and the greedy studios had to think of new ways of milking the Star Wars franchise.

Which is exactly what the 3 latest films are to me, merchandising tools, not more not less.

atually all 9 films were scripted roughly at the same time...

Gl did the middle 3 first as he didnt have the technology at his disposal to do the earlier 3.

and the last 3 are the thrawn trilogy which are books

oh and as for him and his greedy studios being nothing but money grabbers.. get yer fact right.. GL and all his companies signed away the rights to all the starwars films..

Philips, it does go on after ROTJ. There have been a LOT of good books written that take place after ROTJ. Black Fleet Crisis, Timothy Zahn's Thrawn trilogy, I Jedi, Rogue Squadron and others come to mind.

just saw it yesterday - it was great.

I was sixteen when the first film was released in theatres, needless to say, I was able to identify with it in some ways - I was raised by relatives - I had no more idea about my future than ol' Luke did - and I felt like I was a long way from anywhere. For science ficton, it had some relevant issues underlying.
It was totally different from any film or TV series before it - it was THE benchmark sci-fi film for many years after that...Bladerunner then Alien came closest in the aftermath, but if you think of sci-fi films up until 1977...well - there was naught by comparison.
Star Wars was a mind blower and this last film was the best of the prequels by far and gives ESB a run for best of the entire series.

I love CG animation because it makes the impossible possible and storytellers, good ones, love that.
WE are going to see some really cool stuff in theatres over the next few years, be sure.

Darth Sidious was an interesting character, no?

Good comic book action, some funny moments and nice concepts, but about as much in common with the original trilogy as the Clone Wars cartoons, who's style it resembles.

If you didn't know in advance where these clunky plotlines and wooden characters were headed, these new films wouldn't stand up on their own.

Good fun, but unenthralling. The only character with any depth throughout the new films being the excellent Palpatine.

But it's easy to be a cynical adult, they're for the kids, right?

I'm not convinced that Lucas had any strong coherent plan - he seems to make it up as he goes along. It seems the idea behind Star Wars was 'Hey, lets make a new Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon saturday matinee cliffhanger adventure sci-fi film!', not 'Hey, lets make a film about the rise and fall of an evil empire!".
