The Official Swamp Episode III Thread ! *Spoilers*

I thought I might as well get in first....

With the exception of a couple of Belgians and perhaps Sabretooth(who won a premiere tickets competetiton) I'd say us Aussies are going to be among the first to see Ep3, due to our weird timezones.

Right now it is a mere few hours or so before I watch that opening scroll for the very last time in a SW movie....

*sniff*

I'd like to hear others thoughts and feelings after watching Ep3.....

Dude - Australia rocks.


I'm getting a bit concerned about the tickets though. I gave 'em my address, but they haven't come in yet, and if they don't come tomorrow...

Well, I'm going to my friends' house together with Herminator and Ragnos of the Swamp now, where we're watching EP2 one last time and just chilling out before going to the theatre to see it. I'm very, very,very, very excited.

In only 5 hours and 4 minutes we'll see the scrolling opening text.

it's 3.33am.... Im a combination of very tired and ABSOLUTELY AWESTUCK

Episode III was everything I hoped it was......and so much more. Also I was glad I went spoiler free

Definitely some absolutely awesome action scenes and some pretty gruesome stuff. Compared to it, TPM seems like a kids movie

Im too darn tired to write anything more than this....but I look forward to hear what others say upon seeing it

gonna have a nice long sleep, get up and go watch it again

and yes, when those blue font credits roll, the true fanboy among you will find it hard to not be moved at some level....

Wow, five happy smilies from Astro is a very good sign.

Sometimes I hate my time zone. I still have a good 13 hours to go. After I take my final for art history class this afternoon, I'm going to drive over to my friend's house, change into my Kyle Katarn costume from Halloween, and go to the theater to wait in line.

I had a hard time sleeping last night and woke up much earlier than usual out of sheer anticipation today. It's like Christmas eve for geeks.

I'm so exicited. I honestly shouldn't be, but it's very cool. There's been people camping out for days in front of the theatre; something that I've never seen happen here. Not even for AOTC.

My little brothers are going to be wearing their brand spankin' new jedi robes and boots, while wielding those adorable plastic lightsabers. It's going to ROCK!

Gonna have to get there early tomorrow or they'll be so disappointed.

The movie was truly awesome. Storyline=Perfect. Not the best Star Wars movie, but the fall of Anakin Skywalker was simply fantastic

SO friggin awsome!

'You're under arrest, "milord"' = best line ever.

No dialog for Jar Jar, hurrah!


Remember how Amy Allen stated that she doesn't die? Well she does. in a quite obvious way too.

GREAT soundtrack, with "borrowing" of the classics such as Duel of the Fates and Luke and Leia ROTJ theme.

Hayden showed that he could act afterall. All the other actors were magnificent too, and almost everyone pulled off their dialog very nicely.

Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

i have a headache from it since i sat on the second row trying to take in all the fx at once...

yes it was worth the wait

spoiler:
yeah but that little padawan owns the crap out of a handful of clones before he bites it... and i think they could have withheld the anticlimatic cry of vader spreading his arms showing emotion


the juxtaposition between the final scenes were exactly what the movie needed.

That was powerful **** though man. In his mind, he now has NOTHING to lose. All chances for return have faded for him, he has only himself to live for. This makes him more dangerous than anyone or anything in the entire galaxy.

I loved the frankenstein scene. I cried when Mace bit it. Hell the entire bits of the purge they showed made me cry. My brain has actually shut down because that was just too awesome.


Best. Movie. EVER!

With a couple more viewings I'm sure this will become my favourite of the series. Battle Of The Heroes totally blew away any duel, and can only be rivaled by the RoTJ duel. Powerful stuff. I almost hate George for ruining any chance of me ever having anywhere near this amount of joy for any other movie ever again.

That.. that was awesome. There are so many parts I loved. I loved Grievous' henchmen, they were so awesome.

The only thing I wasn't too happy about (but not too upset because I was expecting it) was Grievous himself. The way he died was very cheap I thought. [/pointlessrant]

But yeah, the whole thing was just overwhelmingly awesome.

And, I was very surprised, EVERYTHING was explained.

I thought the only speaking scene with Darth Vader (in the armor) was one of the corniest ****ing things I've ever laid eyes on. Other than that, I liked the movie alot. This is definately the best PT movie of the three.

yeah, I havent heard anyone bitch about it overall....feels weird I must say.......

other little tidbits :

*Jar Jar on screen 3 seconds and says NOTHING YAY !!

*Yoda PWNS Royal Guards

*The many cool type of clonies - cant wait to track down all those figurines

*No Mon mothma.....mustve been cut....have to wait for the dvd I guess
(which has been announced for November)

*I agree with IG, having watched the CW cartoons, I was expecting grievous to be a bit more kickass... and that coughing, sounded like my uncle with emphysema

Still, overall - LOVE IT...(I'll say it again) Im not gonna say its better than ESB or not, because they were made too far apart and directed with different styles...

Im wondering, if ROTK got 'best picture' at the oscars, would ROTS even be nominated next year ?? (im sure it will get Best visual effects)

Just watched the movie.. best of the PT by far.. The entire storyline flowed so well, you could just see the event of the OT coming together by the end of the movie.

When the credits started rolling, a catharsis occured, a feeling of finally knowing the whole story and being content with it.

It was mad opening sequence, watching it at the cinemas made u feel like u were on a star wars ride or something, it really captivated the audience (especially after showing 25min of trailers and adds)

It was cool how all the technology, characters and even troopers slowly evolved into pre-OT standard. The clone trooper suits, the emperor's imperial shuttle, all the other starships.. its just blended the whole saga together.

Hayden Christiansen realy pulled through, though all the acting was a better standard than ep2, he was by far the best, his fall to the dark side was perfectly done. Even the love scenes and dialogue with portman were well done, much better than ep2.

Palpatine goes a bit out of control and senile in parts of the movie, especially when he's gettin wasted by windu, but once he puts on that hood the whole character was perfect. And yeh that Vader cry seemed a bit bizaare.

Though the dialogue wasnt perfect, the story telling was absolutely masterful, GL at his best..

Something that didnt make sense to me was Padme dying after childbirth.. how does this relate to RotJ:
Luke: Do u remember ur mother? ur real mother?
Leia: paraphrase).. memories. She died when i was very young. She was beautiful yet sad.

How does she remember that???

Neways other contradictions may arise..but the movie was brilliant.. i felt like going and watchin the OT straight afterwards..


I call him GAMBLOR!!
