    Remember, no spoilers in here until Monday.


    Oh man! Oh Man! OH MAN! This movie is absolutely unbelievable!! This is definetely right up there with Empire Strikes Back. I liked Phantom Menace, regardless of what some people thought, but this one blows Phantom Menace away. The love scene stuff between Anakin and Padme don't take away from the movie at all, they are very similar to the love stuff between Solo and Leia, so anyone who thinks it is going to be bad because of the love stuff, needs to realize that it doesn't take away from the movie at all!


    I know this is the spoiler free forum, so I will leave you with this. YODA IS THE SHIZNIT!! Now I know why he is the Jedi master. ;) I will say this, after seeing AOTC, I understand why Lucas made Phantom Menace like he did. It makes so much more sense and has me liking Phantom Menace even more as a result. Get ready people, you are all in for a major treat!!

    I was at the premier in Hollywood. The people were jumping out of their seats, even famous actors were completely thrilled. I am a prop maker for various film and television shows, so I was invited to see it.

    From start to finish, I had chills. So many of the pieces are falling into place. Anyone who says Lucas fell off, needs to catch AOTC.

    Awesome.

    Glad you liked it so well.

    I still have to wait 2 more days though.

    Wait.

    2 days...

    Holy crap.

    Believe me, it is worth the wait. Words can't describe this film. Lucas truly makes these films for the fans and took into consideration what we have always wanted to see. :)

    Hmm, I can already hear those who didn't like TPM saying that AotC is better because they told George what to do...

    Everything we, as fans, have ever wanted has come true.

    For example:

    1. Seeing Yoda in action

    2. Boba Fett's background

    3. Jedi all fighting side by side in Clone Wars.

    4. More Portman ;)

    5. Obi-wan's background

    6. Palpatine's rise


    etc...etc...I truly believe George does listen to the fans and did TPM his own way, in order to surprise us with AOTC. I couldn't believe the feeling I got after seeing this movie. Even though TPM was great to me, this movie was more true to how I pictured another Star Wars film. This movie shows you why TPM was done the way it was and I am glad he did it this way.

    Obi Wan's background? Sweet! I didn't expect Lucas to cover that.

    Well, what I meant was seeing Obi-wan as a young Jedi. We got to see some of how great Obi-wan was (a Patawan defeating a full blown Sith) and how he was during the Clone wars in AOTC. There is a lot of interesting things that happens...

    On Friday i'll create a thread telling you all what was cut from the film. It hit the spoiled people pretty hard considering we had known about it for a year and a half. But that's Friday.

    Sorry, but there is NO EXCUSE for Jar Jar and that final battle scene. It was a freaking kiddie movie.

    Good to know that things are falling into place. If anything else, I want to watch the rest of the saga just to witness Anakin's fall and the birth of the Empire.

    Still kind of hard imagining Yoda doing some serious a$$-kicking...

    As lucas has said time and time again, they're SUPPOSED to be "kiddie" movies.

    "But this movie is never going to be The Matrix. And I know some of the fans really want it to be; they get kind of embarrassed that they're watching a kids movie, but that's what it is."

    "I have to make the movie for the same audience base I made the first ones for: 12-year-olds."

    "What is comes down to is, I have kids who say to me 'Thank you for making this movie. Older people say that too, but it's mostly kids. They've done it on every movie. And I'm pretty confident I can continue that. That I can make a movie a young person will be blown away by. That's what I do."

    Baloney. The first three movies, even with the Ewoks, were not as juvenille (sp) as Phantom Menace. A lot of that movie was geared towards 6 to 8 year olds.

    yeah, two or three whole minutes worth. :p

    Here's my question.

    How come Anakin can't say Yippiee a few times, but Spiderman can say Wooohoooo 3 or 4 times?

    Is it the word is self?

    Is it the age of the character?

    Never said I had a problem with Anakin saying "Yipee." I didn't have a problem with the kid at all.

    Jar Jar was ignorant. The humor was childish instead of clever like the other movies. The final battle scene was a disgrace.

    JarJar is in this one and is great as ever. ;) I have no doubt that if you were the age you are now and you saw Episode 4, 5 and 6, you would be saying the same thing. :)

    Oh and Yoda's fight scene is one of the best ever...truly Yoda is the MASTER!

    Well, you would be wrong. I watch the old ones and think they are great. Not a big fan of the Ewoks but they don't come close to being as pathetic as Jar Jar.

    The final battle scene in Phantom Menace was all slap-stick "gosh we got lucky" garbage.

    From the clips I've seen, Clones looks great. I just hope the acting isn't as bad as I've read.

    Mod edit:

    Post your initial reactions here, post a more detailed review here. Of course there will be no spoilers until monday in either thread.
