    I loved ROTS as well when I was younger. Obi and Ani's duel is what made it for me. I just love watching movies where all of the protagonists go down hill, and for me ROTS was that movie;)

    I'm pretty sure he likes it for the duel.

    Personally I hated every minute of that movie after the ruminations scene and hated a lot of it before then.

    ROTS is to you as AOTC is to me... so why are we here?

    And, are we twins?:p

    While I do love RoTS, I can understand why you wouldn't feel the same way. I only realized how much better it could have been as I got older.

    I think it's an iconic moment, frankly. It's that sequence that ties both trilogies together.

    About liking/hating RotS, I still watch it, but I don't "hate" it because of things that happened. I knew going in what would occur, and wasn't disappointed with how it was portrayed.

    I absolutely loved it, but then again, ROTS is tied with ESB with my fav Star Wars film

    My thoughts exactly. I still get chills when the helmet is sealed and Vader takes his first breath, but then it goes down hill from there.

    I loved Darth Vader's no in that scene. Such a sad and pathetic last moment for Anakin Skywalker before he becomes the cold and detached Vader we know. And the scene itself is very iconic IMO. It still gives me chills to hear that first breath coming out.

    Those scenes with Anakin being put in the suit and then asking for Padme or news about her were some of the last ones he uttered in a long time as "Anakin".

    As many people have said that the suit is Vader it is true. After his turn to the Dark Side I tend to refer to him as Anakin/Vader until the suit and then after he turns back to the Light I refer to him again has Anakin/Vader or Vader/Anakin. When you say "Vader" you think of the suit and the breathing.

    Him being put in the suit was iconic, the dialogue afterwards is painful. "It seeeems in your anguhhhh, you killed huhhhhhhh" "Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo"

    No doubt iconic. It's as powerful to longtime fans as it is to people only familiar with the PT; obviously a lot of people were waiting for the fabled scene where the broken Vader is re-constructed as a mechanical man, but people only familiar with Anakin's character can also see that his loss of humanity has now physically manifested itself in Vader.

    For me, this scene was brilliantly played because of how well it tied into the OT; it sold the idea that Vader could not simply turn back into what he once was. The suit was now a permanent embodiment of evil.

    It should have been iconic.

    It was iconic, but for the wrong reasons.

    I think the scene should have been a lot more subtle. Maybe even omitted entirely except for the breathing sound before/after the end credits.

    I loved that scene in ROTS, I can remember sitting there in the cinema waiting for Anakin to transform into Vader and I wasn't disappointed. I don't remember thinking Vaders voice sounded strange when he asked about Padme....JEJ is the voice of Vader and I was over the moon to hear his voice again.

    As for the "Nooooooooooo" it didn't bother me then and still doesn't bother me now, Anakin had just awoken as Vader and still carried with him alot of his human emotions.....I see the "Nooooooooooo" as the moment Anakin/Jedi died and Vader/Sith took over.

    It was Vaders last fully human emotion (well until Jedi)

    Why should it be omitted? I feel like watching the suit being put on Vader was the one scene everyone really wanted to see. Not showing it at all in the movie would make the entire PT a disappointment.

    I hated that "nooooo" at the very end. Ruined the moment for me.

    The scene of Anakin being placed inside the black suit is what I've been waiting to see ever since I first saw Vader walk onto the screen in ANH....Vader yelling 'Nooooooo' for around 3 seconds was never going to and HAS never ruined the moment for me! It's such a great part of ROTS and seeing Palpatine with his evil grin in the background only makes it better....there's so many great aspects to that scene and I've always wondered why people continue to pick at the one supposed negative instead of focusing on the hundreds of positives???

    It's so iconic, it's an iconic icon of iconic iconicity.

    But seriously...

    I wanted to input something Joseph Campbell says in this video I watched last night:

    If you've not seen Campbell speak before, just wait! A real titan of a personality...

    On Becoming An Adult

    "The rituals of initiation of young men in some of the very simple societies are extremely interesting."

    "The boys are brought up to be in fear of the masks that the men wear in their rituals. These are the gods. These are the personification of the powers that structure the society."

    "In New Guinea, there's a wonderful, wonderful event, where this poor kid has to stand up and fight a man with a mask. He's fighting the god."

    "The man lets the kid win, takes the mask off, puts it on the kid."

    "Now the mask is not there defeated and simply said, 'Ah, it's just myth.' The masks represents the power that is shaping the society and has shaped you and now you are a representative of that power. That's a big story."

    "The burial isn't as important as the kid thinking he's dead."

    What else could it be?

    - He's my father.
    - Not Anakin! He couldn't!
