episode iii review

episode iii part 1
i’ve now seen star wars episode iii: revenge of the sith twice (once this morning at 12:02 a.m. and once this afternoon at 2:00 p.m.) and i now feel like i can make a few comments concerning the movie.

  • it was a decent movie (much better than episode i and slightly better than episode ii) but it still doesn’t even come close to episodes iv and v (episode vi is too close to call in my opinion).
  • while impressive in technology and story aspects lucas stinks at dialogue. the worst scenes within the movie were when they stopped to talk. i laughed at almost every scene between padme and vader. lucas should never write a love story. it would simply be too cheesy. anytime lucas tried to add “depth” to the film it just sounded stupid. for instance read this dialouge: vader – “if your not for me … you’re my enemy!” obi wan – “only sith deal in absolutes!” hmmmm? is that an absolute that only sith deal in absolutes?
  • obi wan is “the man” of star wars – within the movies he defeats darth maul and darth vader while anakin/vader defeats dooku and the emperor (wtih help from from luke on the emperor).
  • watching a movie with a full theater that is really into a movie is much better than watching it with a crowd that is sort of in to it – last night people cheered and laughed out loud while this afternoon there simply wasn’t much involvement within the movie.

anyhow it was nice to see the story ended.
