  1. I was also at the concert last night. I know, I know long time no show. Suffice it to say I've been REALLY busy lately and haven't had much of a chance to post here or anywhere or do much of anything. Been working my new chemist job and its REALLY time consuming. Anyway, the show last night was stunning, I was particularly enthralled because not only did I finally get to see the Maestro himself John Williams perform in person but I also got to see Speilberg and Scorcese there as well. I honestly had no idea the other two legendary filmakers were even planning to show up. The first part o
  2. Sucks that London had to win the Olympics and then wake up the next day to some horrible terrorist attacks,
  3. Very simple: We know the plot is not waterproof tight. It's not perfect. So what? Why think those holes through endlessly and spoil the fun? What's the point? The point is those are MAJOR plot holes that when taken in the context of the series make absolutely no sense. The point is with the prequels Lucas coulgiven some exlanation as to why Luke and Leia were left that way. I always though that the reason Luke and Leia were left in a non-Jedi environment was due to accident. In other words it was not planned that way, but somehow Luke and Leia became seperated from not only each other but al
  4. And that's where he failed as a mentor. Everything wasn't good enough for Obi. He didn't want to fail his mission. Anakin was always wrong and Obi Wan was always superior. He commented Anakin on every little detail. It was enough to drive any man to the dark side. This would've never happened if Qui-Gon was anakin's master because he was a strong and loving father figure for him. Sorry dude but that explanation does not work. Obi-Wan was both a loving father figure and a caring friend in the same way Qui-Gonn would have been. OH and I didn't feel that Obi-Wan was on Anakin's case all the time

  6. Well since "fresh" at rottentomatoes.com implies a 3 star movie which is essentially a "good" movie that I liked. Then I would rate it "fresh".
  7. Yes but only because I had relatively low expectations. I expected a fairly good film that would serve as entertainment that I could enjoy. I certainly was not expecting a SW caliber film.
  8. Well I have had a few days now to analyze the movie. Overall I still like the film. I still think the movie is MUCH better than the first two and this one is actually enjoyable to watch. I dont really consider it TRUE Star Wars like I do the OT, but it at least can earn the right to carry the name since it does no harm to the series' overall. However, over the past few days I've realized there are some serious issues here. OH and no its not what you think. I am not going to bitch about the bad acting, dialogue and directing. Those while still flawed were still alot better here. My main comp
  9. OH yeah and I also have a few other complaints about the film storyline-wise: 1) Anakins turn to the dark side: TOTALLY NOT REALISTIC AND POORLY DONE! It was worse than Anakin's turn back to the light side in ROTJ. I mean one minute hes telling Mace all about Palpys plans trying to help the Jedi out and then 5 minutes later hes killing Jedi Younglings? WTF!?!?! I mean he became all upset after Mace died saying "what have I done". Ummmmmm dude you didn't kill him. He seemed to be all upset about killing Mace but then 5 seconds later he swears his eternal allegiance to evil? Ummmmmmmmmm OK. I a
  10. Anyway, the main problems I had with the movies were: 1) The battles in the movie never built to anything. I mean there was alot of moments in the movie where you thought you were gonna get to watch a kick ass battle scene and then the movie just pulled away.This kept friggin happening and it pissed me off. 2) The acting. Although here it was improved over the previous two. I guess the actor actually had some real drama to work with this time. 3) The dialogue: Although like with the acting it eas better here as well. Primarily because Lucas kept the dialogue very basic and never tried to get
  11. Face it, what you said is a try to covers your true sentiment. You liked it Which is enough for me Luke, ETA 4 hours, 45 minutes... Yes I liked it. I think the original statement made that perfectly obvious.
  12. Yeah it wasnt so much a victory of skill as it was a victory of wits. OF course he was aided by the fact that Anakin was a dumb ass and jumped right into him.
  13. I saw it. Did the film redeem the prequels? No! However, it didnt drag the name of the series down into the mud like the last two. For once George delivered a good Prequel film. As good as the originals? Nope! However, this film actually FELT Star Wars. Which is enough for me.
