    I can't believe Dave doesn't want to know a thing about Episode III until C3. Thats means we can say things behind his back without knowing. kidding

    Well as I said in the other topic before it got removed the ROTS trailer was awesome! Hearing Darth Vader's voice gave me chills, not to mention the space battle over corusant and the duel between Anakin and Obiwan in the lava field. This movie is going to be the best.

    Hey guys! I wanted to let you know that I'm helping Spook out by keeping an eye on this thread, since he obviously doesn't want to read anything here. ;) Just don't post any links to illegal copies of the trailer or Hyperspace material and there shouldn't be any problems. :)

    That said...I loved the trailer. I got chills, it was great. My two favorite scenes were all the wookiees together and then evil Sidious/Palpatine/whatever with the red lightsaber. I think this is tons better than the AOTC teaser trailer.

    I liked it all but my favorite part was when Obi-wan and Anakin clashed lightsabers in the lava field. And when they strike the lava explodes. It's just so exciting.

    And don't worry I'm not posting anything illegal. And for all of you who haved seen the trailer its now available to all on sw.com.

    What I can't believe is he had my post "edited"

    Here's what I posted.

    Hey just saw the E3 trailer and it was awesome!! I liked the part where.. "Hey who are you?!" *tackled to the floor by mysterious figures in black*

    And he actually had that edited!! I was gonna join the group but not with such an immature individual like him running the show.. Later all consider me GONE!

    What you posted reminds me more of is the matrix than ROTS. Men in black = Agent Smith.

    It looks like I being the padawan am ready to rise up and take the place of my master to rule all these boards! "You don't know the Power of the darkside!"

    Jedipete33, I know you're not posting anything illegal...I just wanted to point out the main reason for me checking up on the thread. With all the trailer excitement a lot of people have been posting Hyperspace material without a second thought all over the boards. :)

    TenguJedi...I get your joke, but think about it. Your CR hasn't seen the trailer, and your comment could be perceived as an event in the trailer...someone in the trailer instead saying "Hey who are you" and getting tackled by mysterious people in black. How's he supposed to know that didn't actually happen when he hasn't seen the trailer? It doesn't sound so farfetched for a Star Wars movie. A simple misunderstanding - no need to be hostile or to call him "immature" or "a child" (which is flaming by the way - against the rules of this site, please be nice). Now you have a thread to discuss the trailer as much as you want without having to worry about offending spoiler-sensitive folks.

    Each FanForce is able to set its own rules about what constitutes a spoiler. This FanForce's policy is that any Episode III discussion needs to be labeled as "spoiler" to respect the extreme spoiler sensitivy of some of its members. Lots of groups have similar policies in place, so it's nothing out of the ordinary.

    Please don't use this thread as a place to talk about your CR behind his back. That's not what it's for, and I won't allow it to continue. Instead, please use it for its intended purpose - Episode III.

    Back on topic...what did you guys think of the teaser poster? Were you able to see all the "hidden" characters?

    What did I think of the teaser poster? Well at first I didn't like it at all but now the poster has grown on me and I like it a lot. I think I'll get it eventually. Now about those hidden characters the only thing I could make out is Jar Jar getting shot with a blaster. I'm kidding. But really I couldn't find any of the hidden characters.

    The hidden characters, if they're even meant to be there, are pretty hard to see. I managed to get the Vader silhouette and Grievous without too much difficulty, but my boyfriend had to help me with Boba Fett and the Emperor. I felt the same way about the poster at first - very underwhelmed. But it's grown on me too. I haven't bought anything with the poster print on it yet, starwarsshop.com has a bunch of stuff...I think I'll get through my Xmas shopping first. :p

    Have any of you seen the episode III videogame trailer. Whoa! major spoliers in that! If the game follows the movie closely we can predict from the trailer that Anakin kills Dooku and Mace Windu!!! Whoops I've already given away some major plots, so watch the rest at your own risk.

    OK, as I understand it, the whole boards are now open to discussion of the movie, so our board is open as well.

    I have to say that there were a lot things I really liked about ROTS and there were several things I have problems with.

    Anyone else interested in discussing their personal likes and dislikes from ROTS?

    Man, I am new to the boards...

    Episode III was awesome. My favorite fight however was not any thing that took place with sabres or jedi, clone troopers, yoda or palpatine.
    BUT!!

    The fight that Annakin had with himself to, what he thought was saving Padme, by turning on everyone he knew and cared for.( A very typical human flaw in all of mankind) I am still amazed and constantly think bout the inner struggle he had during that movie.
    When he killed Dooku, when he found out bout his dream, when he found out who Palpatine was, m an the list goes on and it drives me crazy lol.

    Than... when Obi-wan cut his legs off, you could see that good flash back to Annakins face, just for a split second, realizing what he done, and than realizing it was to late. I was so sad, his struggle was portrayed really well this time i think by Hayden. I loved it and i cant wait to see it and own it.

    YWELL ROTS is the best star wars movie of all times. The Mustafar battle between Padawan and Master is the best fight i've seen George Lucas do. We finally get to meet Chewbacca before she/he has Han. And Yoda kicks the emporors royal butt even thoung he thought he failed he did awesome

    Chewie is a he! And he's married well not technically but he does have a wife and son...Lumpy. Now my take on ROTS, well it was awesome and definitely my favorite of all the movies...yes even better than ROTJ. I'm not sure about the acting, I can't tell good from bad but the action was great and the movie wrapped up all loose ends except the quigon thing but thats another story...

    Sorry, guys, but I think that if you take out the SFX of ROTS (which are not at the groundbreaking level that the OT was) the movie is lacking is so many ways. To be honest, my first problem while watching the movie was that everything is shown head and shoulders, even that action scenes. It would have been so much better if the scenes had been framed out further so that you get a better scope of everything going on.

    General Greivous was way over-hyped. I knew going in that he had taken some damage from fighting during the kidnapping of Palpatine, but all the hacking and coughing and walking hunched over made him seem more of an old man in his death throws than the kiiling machine he is supposed to be.

    As usual, the "romance" was very pathetic, and there seemed more chemistry between Obi-Wan and Padme (friendship) than there was between Anakin and Padme.

    The pace of the movie was rushed and almost blurs by you.

    Other than the drastic change to Anakin, there is next to no character development in ROTS, something that was very important in the OT and helped you really feel you knew the characters.

    The positives as I see them, the music was still up to John Williams' high level of artistry, the special effects were good, the digital/live action was nearly seamless, and Ewan McGregor actually has made me hold the character of Obi-Wan in much higher regard. I did like that we finally learned why Yoda and Obi-Wan disappeared when they died, though I think it could have been better.

    There are too many things that are still contradictory between the PT and the OT (even with the DVD SE changes).

    By the time 2035 comes around, Lucas may not be around to do a 30th anniversary version!

    And I do want it known that while I think that the PT could have been done better, I am glad it at least exists, though I wish Lucas still had the passion he had that drove him during the OT.

    Did anyone else catch that Obi-Wan and Yoda both refer to Palpatine as Emperor right after he declares the Galactic Empire? How would they have known this while they are searching the Jedi Temple?

    Rick McCallum has stated that there will be 5 or 6 scenes that were cut from the theater version of ROTS that will be included in the DVD release this fall. Unfortunately, most of the scenes seem to be more plot-driving scenes than action/battle scenes.

    I must say that I am very frustrated with the idea that LFL will be releasing boxed sets of 1-3 and 1-6 this fall as well as the ROTS DVD! We just had the OT:SE DVDs released last fall, if I had known that we could have a full set in one box, I would have waited to buy it. Then, I would only have doubles of the TPM and AOTC DVDs and not doubles of them and the OT:SEs...
