Wrath of Khan and Revenge of the Jedi don't sound similar. Their definition is similar but you'd need to as stupid as a human to confuse by so little.


Oh...




On-topic, the title is fine, sounds good, predictable(but at this point who doesn't know what happens at the end of the movie?), and most people like it.
Besides, Star Wars never had good titles.

It's not a case of good or bad titles, it's the fact that Lucas has always chosen oldskool type titles, and besides, they aren't THE title, they're chapter titles.

STAR WARS

The Phantom Menace
Attack of the Clones
Revenge of the Sith
A New Hope
The Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi

It doesn't matter what these titles are because over time we get used to them and treat them just as we would the OT trilogy titles. Besides, we all know when every one of you go into the theatre to watch RotS you won't give a flying **** about the title and will all come out saying I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT SO MUCH! GREATEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME. You know you will, but for some of you, to save face you'll come back here and say "eh it was aright"

I still hate Attack of the Clones, and I suppose Revenge of the Sith will grow on me...but my title befits the overall mood of the movie...

...y'know, given that the last 2 drove alot of people insane...

...and I place the blame souly on Jar-Jar Binks.

sure, if you're looking at the word 'jedi' in the plural sense, then luke's fulfillment of this part of his fate has spurred the return of the jedi as a group. and not saying that you're wrong, but these stories have always been about anakin skywalker (he's been in all 6 flicks so far), and since he left the jedi order in EP3, he returns as a jedi in EP6 ... we even see him in the jedi garb sitting next to yoda and obi-wan on endor.

but hey, we're all entitled to our opinions. only the big GL knows exactly what the significance of each title is.

i wouldn't go that far. GL is smart but some of his decisions are unknown, even to himself.

Lynk Former is right, these movie titles are chapter titles and if you have ever read a book with titles in it you will see that the chapter titles often reflect a part of that chapter, maybe not the entire chapter (movie in this case) but it focuses on an important event, or series of events that happens in the chapter that that coincides with the entire story. Also, keep in mind that this tale is being told to us in a very unusual manner, especially episodes 2 and 3. When it came to these movies George Lucas will "finish where he begins".

I just love the title. I have seen many polls across the web and it seems 85% of people liked or loved the time on an average, 5-7% were netural, and 7-9% disliked it or hated it. That must be good since the polls for TPM and AOTC were not that good. Good sign for the opening weekend!

Has anyone seen the Star Wars Episode III databank on www.starwars.com ? They made a small update in the vehicles section. We will get to see the Repbulic Gunship and AT-TE Walker in Star Wars Episode III.

I just heard the reasoning why they changed Revenge of the Sith to Return of the Jedi in a old star wars insider. Makes sense to me! Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan had been released before that movie and many people probably would of thought Lucas took the idea for his movie. But then I heard the other reasoning that Lucas thought Jedi don't take revenge on people, etc. and he changed it. Maybe he wanted the title to tie to original title of episode VI. I love the title. Sith would take revenge!
