ign.com review

http://filmforce.ign.com/articles/612/612085p1.html

there is a way to look at this spoiler free by skipping the middle page, which they tell you at the end of the first, but i'm not daring to put this in the non-spoiler forum cuz somebody will chop my head off because there is a link to spoilers.

so i share it with you, my brethren thirsting for spoilers. and while they aren't anything new it does kinda do a nice comparison of things so it gets a little deep.

the review itself is interesting, it got a 3 out of 5, but it kinda seemed the reviewer expected an epic and wasn't satisfied with a good movie. to quote

"'You're taking this too seriously!' some will protest. 'It's just a Star Wars movie!' others will add. Perhaps. But Revenge of the Sith is a culmination of thirty years of detail and mythology, carefully honed across multiple media platforms"

IGN is known to hold a prequel hate. So who cares what they think of the movie. Good to see signs of them removing the stick from their ass though.

From article.

"
spoiler:
The evil Chancellor Palpatine – who has quietly puppet-mastered an entire Galactic Republic throughout these prequels – suddenly declares "Order 66", prompting tens of thousands of "Clone Troopers" to suddenly turn on & assassinate the very Jedi they've been fighting beside for years. At face value, they murder their friends and comrades – simply because they were told to do so.
"

That's because they're unquestioning soldiers that are incapable of talking back. This idiot should pay attention to what is said in AoTC.

And it has been said about the inlying programming of Order 66.

"In the earlier prequels, Jedi skydive from tremendous heights, dodging aerial traffic & leaping from impossibly high balconies like flying squirrels. So, how can a principal Jedi character in this film die...by falling? The same discrepancy rears its ugly head in Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, by the way. This undercuts the intent of the sequence, and the fate of the key character." It's called they used the force to lessen the impact. When Palpatine was thrown INTO THE REACTOR, he was caught by surprise and didn't hit anything but instead was incinerated.

The so called "inconsistencies" are from their own ignorance. If they weren't so lazy, they'd have learned these things already.

Eheh... I didn't expect them to give it a perfect rating. 3.5-4.5 is what I'm expecting RotS to be...

I have some questions about Palpy and the clones, but I'll wait to see the movie to see if my question is answered.




That's the last time I buy anything just because it's furry!

The only thing in that review I can concede to is the sensing babies thing. But that's only because I haven't seen the movie. And since he missed the focused dialogue in AoTC where they specifically say the clones are made to be completely obedient. I'm sure he missed picking up a hint as to why Anakin couldn't sense the babies.

Sensing an enemy in their powerbase? Let's see... THE DARK SIDE CLOUDS EVERYTHING!

anakin states in his dialogue with palpatine at the ballet that ...

The Sith rely on their passion for their strength. They think inwards, only about themselves.

this lends me to believe, along with his obsession with preventing padme's death, that anakin's mind is not necessarily on the live(s) growing within his wife. his path to the darkside has already began when his selfishness overwhelms him and he betrays the jedi order.

but like you said, i haven't seen the movie either, so this is all just my own personal speculation.

That makes sense. I could see that being a possibility.

I trust IGN and thier Reviews. But yes they have a strong "prequal hate". So does PCGAMER but they don't rate movies I just catch articles on them because of their upcomming Prequal games.
