I really was a fan of all the prequels until now!! I think Revenge of the Sith was the worst Star Wars film ever made!
Here is my rank of Star Wars films:
1. Return of The Jedi
2. Empire Strikes Back
3. Attack Of The Clones
4. A New Hope
5. Revenge Of the Sith
6. The Phantom Menace
All of this is inconsistant, you know? To say that you liked the prequels until ROTS... that's brave.
I can't help but wonder if its possible for your mind to change once the DVD comes out, seeing as your biggest complaints are of scenes that were taken out of the movie. Once those scenes are dropped back in, will you change your mind?
As far as your complaint about Natalie Portman not being able to act... where were you with TPM and AOTC? You realize Natalie Portman was in those movies, too, right? ROTS was all
of the actors' best of the prequels - to me it looked like everyone finally got their **** together and decided to put effort into the movie.
As far as Luminara goes - I don't know what you think you saw, but she was only in the movie for a fraction of a second and she looked alright to me... The fact that a fraction-of-a-second background character managed to put a dent in your view of ROTS says alot :
Bottom line is : You made the mistake of looking into spoilers and reading too much into the hype machine...
On a personal note, I took my mom to see it (she loved it) and now I've gone with her to see all six Star Wars movies in the theatre. She took me to see ANH when it was rereleased right before ESB, and I was almost 4 years old. So being able to take her to this last one was a big deal for me. Anyone else have a similar experience?
I think that's awesome. I'm 20, so I missed all of the OT the first time around, but my mom took me to see the Special Editions on their opening nights... we've went to see every single one of the 6 films in theatres together, so I thought it was special to that me and mom got to see the final film together, too.
It would have been nice to see Dagobah, but I mainly wanted to see Vader ignite his red Lightsaber!
Someone told me that once Anakin turned to the dark side, his lightsaber would magically turn from blue to red... God I'm so glad that didn't happen, LOL. I wonder how long Vader walks around with a blue saber before he builds a new one.
