    Go to IMDb.com/features/rto/2006/poll/bestof2005 and vote for ROTS. Right now it's doing pretty bad. ROTS is #8 for Best Movie, #1 for worst screenplay,#2 for worst movie, #2 for worst Director, #2 for worst actor (Hayden). It's doing very poorly for the highest grossing movie of the year.

    #1 for worst screenplay,#2 for worst movie, #2 for worst Director, #2 for worst actor (Hayden).

    What?! The only thing I agree on that is Hayden being a bad actor ( which he is ). The screenplay and directing I thought were fine. And the worst movie?! [face_talk_hand]
    It did get three and a half stars out of four.

    A lot of Harry Potter fans have been stuffing the ballot box in that poll -- look at how prominent the movie is in all categories, including the acting categries!

    This kind of internet driven nonsense is the reason why I'm glad Star Wars is finished. Its time to let it slide into the background and wait for the next generation (todays kids) to fix this crazziness in 20 years time. (Not unlike the story of Star Wars itself)

    Ewan and Natalie are also up for Worst Performances. Ewan was Great in the film!

    I wouldn't pay it any attention. The whole thing is insulting and absurd and shows the mentality of that web-site and nothing more. :)

    I agree with G-FETT, any kind of survey like that on a web-site is bound to be stuffed/rigged. I just watched War of the Worlds for the first time over the weekend and boy what a stinker. I mean, people giving Lucas a bad rap about Episode III, Speilberg should be ashamed of himself. That movie was just awful.

    When did Hayden Christiansen get this reputation for being a bad actor?

    When Joe Basher woke up and realized that he wouldn't be playing Anakin himself like in all his Jedi killing dreams and would instead lose the part to a (gasp!) actor.

    The only polls I believe in are metal ones that are shiny... that and Poles like John Paul II and stuff.

    This discussion really isn't worth getting into. But the fact is, in 99% of his scenes Hayden was great. If anything it was Ewan who had a few flat lines in this film, but even in his case most of his scenes were excellent. Natalie improved. Ian was astonishing. Frankly, as an ensemble piece, the acting in ROTS was great, and it was probably the best acted episode outside of ESB.

    "Lock on to em' R2. Master, Buzz Droids"

    What on Earth was wrong with that?

    It wasn't said with conviction, mixed with equal parts anger and sincerity. Nothing like the true Chosen One.

    It's in the Top Ten for Worst Title and Worst Poster. Most people liked the poster, and how can Revenge of the Sith be a bad title in anyone's mind?

    ROTS kicked everything else's butt this year and this is the only way some sados can have a dig at it.

    its only in the worst categories because of all the haters. There are alot of Star Wars haters out there who can't accept how great the series is and think they're too cool for it. So when they see any mention of it they stick their noses up and hate on, even though they probably havent seen it. Have you noticed its in the top 10 for Worst Visual Effects and Worst Poster too? Kind of proves my point.

    Third. :D

    As for the poll, yeah don't worry too much about it. The past two movies gave ROTS a reputation I think. The screenplay was not so bad.

    I agree with everyone else in this thread. This stuff is just to get us SW fanatics mad. I mean come on....worst visual effects worst FX, worst actors, worst title, worst movie that just you know grossed 350 million in the US and nearly 700 million worldwide. They are very jealous and not worth getting mad over. I mean out of those catagories i mentioned ROTS has got to be at least in teh #10. no one has respect for star wars in Hollywood, even though if it wasnt for ROTS they would be in even worse shape now its because of star wars that Hollywood did so great in 2005 mid summer movies. SO dont even get mad or dissappointed to this news as they are just jealous that we have such a fan base and they dont. i cant wait to see if they dont include star wars in the academy awards for FX, music and actors and director as well as best picture. to me and others on this board best movie was ROTS no ifs ands or buts. NUff said!!!
