I've just watched the film and the special features disc. :D

It's even better than I remember it in the cinema if that is possible. It's just so...so...AWESOME!

ok, enough with the chat, I'm off to watch it again. ;)

It's a shame some of you have to wait till tommorow. :xp:

It's a shame that some of us can only watch it on a 17 inch, crappy screen with shoddy speakers that aren't even worthy of hearing Britney spears on....

I bet it's good though.

i've had it since last week. And this one ain't bootleg. My bro works at a video store and he got it a week ago. I've seen it and i thought they wouldn't had more deleted scenes. They didn't show plo koon and ki adi attacking the trade federation starship or when Dooku uses two lightsabers. Oo well i still liked it.

11-12-2002, 06:18 AM
i just can't get over the fact that they cut out the Plo Koon and Ki Adi scene completely out of the special features. i was waitin on that one too.

Yes, I got the DVD yesterday...and watched AOTC for the first time. :)

I have to say...I'm impressed. I liked it a lot more than Episode I...it had better pacing, and a better plot. The battle at the end really felt like war. In fact, the only issues I had with the film were...

1. Hayden Christensen. I think he was miscast. In some scenes, he was quite good, in others he was totally bland. Unfortunately, it didn't help that he was given some really bad dialogue in parts. When he was supposed to be bad, he wasn't bad enough...and he didn't have a great deal of charisma... IMO, if you're setting a character up for a fall, then you really need the audience to like them a lot first, so they can empathise more.

2. The romantic scenes...just didn't seem very romantic. I have nothing against romance, as long as it's done well. Again, they were a bit bland, and didn't seem to flow with the rest of the film. With Han and Leia in ESB...you at least felt there was some chemistry going on...but I didn't pick that up in AOTC. :(

As for the DVD version...I just wish they had put some of those deleted scenes back into the film, so I could watch them in a proper context. :( In fact, to be honest, there are a couple of those scenes that I felt should not have been removed in the first place...because they weren't very long (so would not have added a great deal of length to the movie, or really altered the pace), and added a little more depth to the situation.

All in all, a good movie, and I have real hopes for the promised darker third episode.

Most of the deleted scenes kinda suck :\
Including; Padme's house! Wooo :indif:
I think if the scenes were added it might've made the movie more dull in places.
But I hate and love EP2, so I'll just shutup and wait for EP3 :)

Ratmjedi

Nope

1. Padme Addresses the Senate

4. Extended Arrival on Naboo
5. Padme's Parent's Home

8. Anakin and Padme on trial

Thats all the deleted scenes that ar on the DVD

So everything new to the movie theatre version is in the deleted scenes? They did not add anything new to the movie itself?

Ratmjedi
11-12-2002, 04:31 PM
Yup
It's just like the Ep I DVD which I am watching by the way right now.

All the new stuff is not in the film itself , It is on a seperate disc. You can watch the scenes there but you can not put them into the movie itself. It would be cool though if you could insert the scenes into the movie itself.

That sucks. Well, at least I will be able to watch all the duels slo-mo

Hekx
11-12-2002, 04:37 PM
The DVD graphics effects and menu's rule :)
Especially the language menu I think, it has the Kamino landing platform and Obi deflecting laser shots from Jango.
Go CGI Go!

It was $15.99 at Bestbuy and I had $18 exactly so I went and picked it up earlier. I never saw it in the theatre, so this was the first time. Unfortunately I only watched it and my 19" TV, I might hook my DVD player to the 32" later.

how so. we haven't seen the tru power of the one called Yoda. dooku was quiverin in his pansy bootys. i think we will see more yoda in Ep3

Rogue15
11-13-2002, 01:30 PM
Dooku had the chance when he threw that pillar down by obi and anakin. Yoda was too busy concetrating trying to get the pillar away from them that while he was doing that, dooku could've gone for a quick slash to his back.

Pad
11-13-2002, 01:36 PM
true, but maybe dooku still had some honour left and didnt kill yoda because he couldnt defend himself. could be some kind of jedi code.

ya, maybe. I don't know. You'd think he would've at least killed obiwan, especially since he told him about Darth Sidious. :confused:

MysticSpade
11-13-2002, 03:43 PM
yes but when ever he met up with Sidious at the end of the movie he said (sidious) everythin is goin as planned.

True...but I think Yoda would have defended himself, going by a comment he made in ESB...

Luke...and let them die?

Yoda...if you honour what they fight for...yes.

So the vertically-challenged green one is quite willing to make sacrifices under certain circumstances. :)

Dooku may have suspected he might not be a match for Yoda after all, and so decided to flee and fight another day.

Anyway, I like some of the special features that come with the DVD. Very interesting. :)

I've watched the whole dvd version of the movie 3 times now, but the documenetary footage is really interesting. I finished watching every single thing the discs had to offer and I was very pleased with the documentarys. Many times people just skip over them but they are worth watching in my opinion.
