Found it here myself. He's listed under "rest of cast listed alphabetically" right under Peter Jackson. Which put's him sixteenth on that list. Lucas is 22nd on it, by the way.

All of the movies have good points and bad; but there's just something about those walking tanks... Cool

I loved the movie!

Definitly the third best movie of the series (ESB 1st, ANH 2nd).

The Good: Yoda tking the two guards in the Emperor's Chambers.

The Bad: I love you, no I love you more, no I really love you (Anakin and Padame on Balcony)

Overall it was an awesome movie and I can not wait for the DVD!

Really liked those Republic Capital ships too!

Peace.

I loved ROTS! FINALLY, a SW movie at least approaching the kind of lightsaber and Force action I've been wanting to see! I realize people like the films for different reasons, but my big thing's always been the Jedi. It's been nice to see them busting out the lightsabers a lot more as the prequels have advanced. That was one of the reasons I liked TESB so much- that wonderfully long duel between Luke and Vader.

I ended up voting for RotJ, mainly because it's the first movie I actually remember going to see, and having my dad read what Jabba was saying as I couldn't read fast enough. Nothing to do with the movie really, just some great childhood memories. Smile

Jeese, no one voted for Phantom Menace? Surely we can all look past the crappy parts played by unbelivable and ethnicly biased charactures like Qui-Gon and Yoda and see the true heart of the film in the convincing and well acted dialoge between great characters like Anakin and Jar-Jar.

I would have voted for the "Holiday Special", it's the funniest and saddest Star Wars experience at once. It really make you wonder who approved the script, and after watching the Holiday Special Episodes 1 & 2 look like great movies by comparison.

ROTJ was the first one I saw in the theaters too. Actually, I saw them all out of whack. I saw TESB first, then ANH, then ROTJ. Going to see that was a birthday present to me from a family friend. So I have to agree, it was good memories surrounding ROTJ... but I still had to vote for ROTS.

I think Empire Strikes Back was by far the best. It had the really interesting heroics, but overall it was a bittersweet movie. There was great sadness for the heros, many defeats, and it showed the sheer scope of the oposition the rebellion faced.

Now, as for ROTS, I found it tolerable, though it was still a movie with many problems for me, both technically and cinimaticly. It seemed that the movie was plagued by not only bad scripting, but bad acting in so many places. I especially hated the CGI used for R2-D2 as it came off looking cartoony, and not moving at all right. I hated the voices of the battle droids, all of the battle droids. I hat all the attachments that R2 keeps popping up with, I mean, really, where does it all fit?
However, of all of the prequels, it is the sole one I would consider seeing again, or even be convinced into accepting as a part of the orriginal concept (the others varried too much from previous statements and material released by Lucas himself). The opening fight scene in space was nice (and I could see a RP group behaving the way Annakin and Obi-Wan were in those fighters). The ships were aesthetically pleasing. I thought some of the lightsaber duels were too CGI, but still nice. I did not like the way Kashyak was depicted.

It wasn't a bad movie, I guess, but ESB will always be my favorite.

As far as I'm concerned, absolutely NOTHING happened in the Galaxy before Leia's Rebel Alliance team stole the Death Star schematics. Nope, nothing. Ta-dee-dam... Clone Wars, you say? Oh, that was a long time ago. Naboo? Ahem. We don't talk about *that place*. In fact, I wish I could edit out the Ewoks from RotJ, but I can still like with that movie.

As for RotS, can someone tell me why R2-D2 needed to carry a cell phone? I'm still trying to process that one. Confused

Everyone needs a comms device. Standard issue. All characters carry one.

But yes, the CGI R2 did not move right. More like a cartoon character, less like a machine.

The old machine R2 moved like a machine, because it was a machine. It also really was a machine on screen, an actual plastic and metal fabrication with tools.

And R2 has quite a lot of tools, in all 6 movies we don't see everything that is listed in the most frugal estimates. Though the leg jets in AotC was something I did not expect.

Yep, but instead taking a minute to adjust freqencies, easier to just toss the droid a comm that is already linked to yours.

Why not? We were supposed to have seen a seen in TPM of Artoo flying on his own that ended up getting cut out. The only difference between that scene and the AotC scene is that the jets were mounted within his body.

Personally, I prefered the Lightsaber fights in TESB and RotJ (the one in ANH was pretty bad. That spin that Kenoib does still makes me laugh). The one in Episode I was pretty good though. Now I'd say that Episode I was pretty good. And if you can get ahold of "The Phantom Edit" it becomes amazing. Still Eisode III's acting was still pretty bad and the fight sceens look to Rehearsed to me.

But I voted for RotJ. Good acting, good story, gripping, and Darth was much cooler then.

I did have to think for a long time though, I almost voted for TESB. While I will admit that it is a more thought provoking story, RotJ just clinced the Star Wars feel for me.
