    The opening lies that Ian Mc speak are lame really lame. Its way to slow and way to over the top. I mean who speaks like that?

    It's called being slow and deliberate. Palpatine wants Anakin to soak up every word he says to turn him over to the Dark Side. Or am I being too obvious. Apparently not to those who'd ask questions like that. :)

    "Did Vader ever fold his arms in the OT? I though it was always hands on hips or behind his back. Maybe just a mirror of Maul in TPM?"

    I don't think he ever folded his arms, but before all the OT purists/PT bashers start whining that folding his arms ruins his character, I'm pretty sure that when Vader first encounters Leia on the Tantive at the beginning of ANH, he puts his hands on his hips. I always thought that looked really silly!!

    Initial Reaction? Amazement. This new film looks like it takes Star Wars to a whole new level. I'm pumped.

    Okay, this thread is 89 pages long and counting. SURELY you can forgive me for not reading the whole thing through just to see if anyone has already asked this. My sincere apologies if it has been covered, but hey, it could have been worse, I could have started a new thread and really got my ass whupped.

    Here it is:
    Does anyone know what the noise at the very end of the trailer is?

    It's Palpatine speaking to Vader with The Emperor's Theme running in the background. And no you're not forgiven. :p

    I liked the theatrical trailer, but I STILL feel like they're holding back. Which is good, since I believe the BEST parts of ROTS will be in the film and not the trailer.

    One thing that DID bother me about the trailer though is the aspect ratio. The teaser trailer was in the 2.35:1 ratio - the same ratio that the movie was shot in.

    I felt like a lot of the action shots felt cropped with the 1.85:1 ratio. I think they went with that ratio though, even though ROTS will be in the 2.35:1 ratio because it plays better on TV and the movie "Robots" is probably in that same ratio. It would be easier to play that trailer in front of other action/adventure movies which are in the same aspect ratio.

    I felt that too (omg, it's mind boggling how SW quotes fit in real life, isn't it? [face_laugh] )

    Anyway, I thought Threepio's head looke a bit "flattened".

    Actually, the only sith lord to fold his arms was maul. Since he looked so darn cool, Lucas made vader so so as well, even though he will never do it again.

    I love the trailer. Especially the dark, intense music playing as Anakin walks around killing people. But my favorite scene has to be the moment where Windu comes to arrest Palpatine and he says "Are you threatening me Master Jedi?".

    The look on Palp's face is awesome when he says that. You can literally read the Dark Side on his face, full of anger and hate.
    I think McDiardmid did an amazing job for EpIII.
    To see him bowing and smiling like an hypocrite in EpI, and now this cold evil aura in EpIII... excellent job. I'm so excited I can't wait !

    There is something very sad about all this!

    Alot of people will. Nothing really good happens in this movie (depending on your point of view) and all of the characters we like will have alot of emotion and drama attached to them in this Episode./>/>

    This is gonna be so freaking intense and awesome. I'm thrilling everytime I hear Sidious say "Every single Jedi is now an enemy of the Republic". This is gonna be dark and emotionally brutal. The parents who wanna bring their kids along are gonna be really surprised.

    The trailer shown on the HD TV feed was 1.85:1. The Large size trailer available on the official site is 2.35:1 (or close to it). You may want to watch the official clip to see the full picture. Hopefully the X-Large size will be out soon.

    JUST SAW IT!!!

    HOLY ****!!!!!!!

    I am convinced. This will be the best of the films.

    Lucas drove SW down hill with the first two, but he'll bring it to a state better than what it was before he did the prequels.

    That was AWSOME!!!

    wow.

    Not just the best SW film. The best sci-fi film ever IMO.
