I just got back from my midnight show. I'm not sure how I feel right now. Overall, I liked the movie. I'm not sure what it is, but when the credits started to roll, I wasn't feeling awed by the movie. I had planned on seeing the movie a bunch of times over the next 5-6 days, but when I left the theater I didn't really have an urge to see it again anytime soon. Stuff I really really liked: - The whole Opera scene. Darth Plageus teaches Sidious how to manipulate midichlorians, and with this knowledge he creates Anakin. I love that idea. I hated the whole "virgin birth" idea. This makes it all more ... ironic. Sidious creates the being that ultimately destroys him. I'd love more details on when/where/how Sidious does this to Shmi. - The final scene. Binary sunset was the perfect ending, I couldn't think of anything better. - The Final Battle. As epic as I always dreamed it would be. The swinging didn't look cheesy at all in the proper context. And I just knew the "Anakin, you're breaking my heart" took place on Mustafar as part of the "the Jedi turned against me, don't you turn against me" conversation. - Burned up Anakin. It looked a bit like the Terminator, but to see that much damage to his body, and him yelling "I hate you" just before was really powerful. It makes me believe 100% that he's now evil, and will do anything for his Master. - The Opening Scene. I had seen pieces of it in the trailers, but to see it on the big screen ... honestly my jaw was wide open in amazment. It was beautiful. There were layers upon layers of ships. There was just so much to see. - Jedi deaths. This struck me as really powerful, especially when they flashed to Yoda feeling their deaths. - Jar Jar didn't say a darn thing the whole movie. And you could only see him in 2 scenes Stuff that I didn't quite like: - The turn to the dark side seemed to happen too fast. Yes the groundwork was laid in Ep2, but something just didn't feel right about it. In a flash he was almost losing it, "what have I done?" after helping to kill Mace, and then 2 seconds later he's relatively calmly pledging himself to Sidious. - The bug droids on the ships at the start. I agree with whoever said they should have just used the Force to knock them off. They seemed too cutesy for my tastes. - Was it just me, or does R2 beep a lot more then is neccessary in this movie, especially during the whole opening battle part? - Dooku fight seemed too short, and it really looked like Obi-Wan had his legs chopped off when the platform fell on him when he was unconscious. - Padme's death. For some unknown reason she's deteriorating? What the heck kind of advanced medical knowledge do these guys have? Lost the will to live? Didn't she say there was still good in him? Then why give up and die? - Was it just me, or did people seem to get around the galaxy really fast? Sidious senses that Vader is in trouble on Mustafar, and by the end of the lightsaber duel (maybe a few hours later at best?) he's showed up to save Vader? There were lots of fast scene cuts that made watching it really awkward at times. Anyways, these are just some things on the top of my head. I'd probably give the movie 4 out of 5 stars, and rank it 3rd, after ESB and ANH. I think I'll read the book next, and go see it at least once more in the next few days.
