I think it might be nice to have a category for the movies, so that discussion can take place about them in generel and in how they affect the game.

Second, I just saw episode III and wow , except for a little bad dialoge, wow.

I don't think there's going to be much of a contest here....... TESB is kind of an unanimity.

Saw ROTS wednesday night, very good, but I left the cinema quite stunned and not really knowing what to think. It's a really hard movie to pass judgement on first viewing, it's just such a bag of mixed emotions... I'm going to see it today in a digital theater, and hopefully I'll be able to digest it better.

Good:
Order 66 montage

Bad:
"Nooooooo"

Exactly! I could have done without the cartoonish droid stuff in the beginning as well. Oil and fire killing Super Battle droids? Rolling Eyes

Don't have a problem with that. It was a nice lighthearted moment, though the droid's voices are sounding truly odd? Is it just me or have the battle droids become affeminate?

Good:
The Emolation Scene

*Shrug* I can see droids (Particularily Battle Droids) as having major problems with overheating. Bloody Overclockers.

Good: Obi's Mount. ("I want one!!!" - Too many people to count)

Bad: Needed more Wookiee.

I just watched it a second time, and I feel now I can make a veredict. I LOVE IT! It's very strange, the first time I left the cinema qith a nagging feeling that it was a very flawed film, but now it just seemed to flow perfectly with great scenes, much better acting than before, a very well laid out plot and lots of cool moments. It's a terrific film. Certainly the best of the prequels, and I'm seruiously thinking it's better than ROTJ. It's just that nothing could ever debunk ANH and TESB.

Good:
Space battle

Bad:
"He's the traitor" "HE's the traitor"

Good: Awsome lightsaber duels, and many of them too. Plus ARC Troopers on screen.

Bad: Not nearly enough Chewie. Plus Lucas should have had a speaking role, or at least been on the screen as long as his son. Also James Earl Jones sounded off as if it wasn't him and he's supposed to be doing the voice of Vader.

Did James do the voice? I think they might have gotten someone else, because at that point, anikan was still young young, instead of throughout A new hope and later. But I definately would have preferred classic James Earl Jones for the voice of Vader.

Really? Probably should have payed closer attention to the credits while waiting for the crowd to thin out enough so I could get out of the was I was in and leave the theater because I'd read on the IMDb that he'd opted to be uncredited. That's also where I found out about Lucas appearing in the movie, and I had to find an image of him in his costume and makeup in the Visual Dictionary while in the book store just before going to the theater just to know what to look for when he was on screen. Know what he looks like regulary, but when he's blue and in that costume, and his beard looks almost like a lighter shade of blue, it can be easy to miss him.

I watched the credits to see if it was Earl, but couldn't see his name anywhere.
