    I am so happy that this movie has done so well! Even my anti-Star Wars friends saw it and liked it. It will blow away every movie this summer. I feel sorry for the Batman Marketing campaign because they have alot to compete with.

    Oh I hope it beats Titanic. What a steaming piece of crap Titanic was.

    I never saw Titanic, and it's on my ' I'm never going to see' list.

    I thought titanic was more than three hours. But then again, time slows down during times of intense discomfort. That and Pearl Harbor are two of my least favorite movies.

    the only things worth seeing in either films are the disasters because they were really well done. When the titanic went down and the harbor was bombed - only parts totally worth seeing

    I agree. Each one of those movies should have been about 30 minutes long

    Now ROTS.....that could've taken the time wasted in the two movies above and put it to good use. Like the wookies, I wanted to see more wookie action!!! Oh well though... :)

    even when the action scenes in Titanic were good, Jack Dawson screwed up everything because he had the girls crying while watching. Movie was way toooooooooo long. Pearl Harbor, I thought it was like Saving Private Ryan when I rented it. It was Horrible!!! Hard-core chick flick. Mad me so mad, that was back in the day when I used to rent off of Netflix.

    Always the Deleted scenes. That is when you might get your bonus Wookiee stuff.

    Titanic sucked, the only thing that saved that sad piece of crap was Billy Zane. If only he had been in Star Wars [face_thinking]

    Peter you're right. He could have been Bail Organa, or Captain Antilles, or hell maybe even Obi-Wan.

    At least Titanic had the "art" scene to placate the men who had to watch it.

    It was a sappy movie. That said, it was entertaining. I liked it.

    Hey, Billy Zane was in it. He can make just about any movie good.

    Funny that Smokey and the Bandit is #60 and is way low compared to Star Wars (1977). These two were released on the same time and it was believed that Smokey would kill Star Wars in the box office. Guess not!

    speaking of deleted scenes....Mon Mothman had an action figure and pictures and an actress and everything, what's up with that? Deleted scene I'm assuming?

    I'm guessing the same thing. That is a good Question.

    and to think Burt Reynolds could of been Han Solo!

    she is in the film - in the crowd that greets palpy at the beginning, she is in the back.

    at least she made it onto the screen. There are figs for Shaak Ti - I know a deleted scenes, there are pics in the making of book - Luminara and Barris but they are never even on the screen!

    Funny I brought up Smokey and the Bandit, it is on AMC right now. The next time that I see Episode 3, I will look for her. When I was watching that scene, I was looking for the Falcon and found it. I was so happy that I did not pay attention to the senators.

    I guess that makes sense, cause I was looking for her and missed the Falcon... I was upset there wasn't more of her. I know there was a scene cut out with her and Padme.
