My Star Wars fan life is complete. I can rest easy.

This is what I've been waiting for so long. My life as a fan may be short in comparison to others, but it has had a great impact on my actual life. Sad, some may say, but I am grateful. This movie series has meant so much to me (and still does), it is hard to describe in words. When the final shot of Revenge came across the screen I truly did cry. It wasn't out of sadness or joy. It was just the result of waiting so long. I found it hard not to cry when the Binary Sunset theme filled the theatre. It felt so...right. Everything fell into place.

I don't know what the future holds for Star Wars, be it a mini-series or another trilogy or 3D versions of the movies, but to me I can finally rest easy. It has come full circle for me. The rumors I heard so long ago of a prequel trilogy have become a reality and I am beyond content.

This was a great film, and I believe it to be on equal footing of the Originals. I feel truly lucky to have seen such a wonderful end to the journey that has been these six films.

I'm just glad there aren't more films that will turn it into Star Trek.

It's not how good the bus is it's who is behind the wheel that counts and the guy driving Star Trek is drunk. A person can only drive so long before they finally have a wreck i.e. Enterprise.

Berman drove Star Trek threw 13 school kids, a nun, and into a retirement home.

If Star Trek still had Gene Roddenberry it would still have a safe driving record.

Where would star wars be without Lucas?

Yes it was.

There were Five lightsaber battles, awesome special effects, a great story, average acting by some and great acting by others... What more could you want (besides great acting from everybody, not just some )?

The lightsaber battles were cool, the special effects were also great. I thought the story was ok as well(it did have its problems). The dialouge was pretty bad throughout the entire movie especially the Padme&Anakin scenes. The acting wasnt that good either the dude that plays Anankin(cant remember his name) is a really bad actor and I felt his performance really hurt the movie. The chick who plays Padme (its 10am on a sunday cut me some slack) was just as bad.

A few other things I didnt like were Chewbacca's meaningless apperance(hey everybody its chewie he doesnt really have a purpose but here he is). Anakin in the black robes. Just felt like Lucas wanted to make sure everybody knew who Darth Vader was while he was stilll in Jedi Mode . The dude that played Anakin is a really bad actor(yeah I know I mentioned it already but he was really bad). The 3 second Count Dooku fight (Grrr You going down je......*head go bye bye*). Lucas rejected my idea for a love scene between Master Lettuce Head of The order of Jedi Ass Woop and Jessica Alba.

I didn't think Hayden Christensen(you know that dude who played Anakin) did that bad of a job in this movie, of course that's because I'm comparing him to when he did episode two, where everything he said sounded retarded. Natalie Portman(You know, that one chick) didn't do that bad of a job either, though I do agree it was kinda pointless to put chewbacca in the movie.

OY! Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman not sure how I managed to forgot her name. Yeah he did do a better job this time around but it was still a pretty lousy performance and I think the dialouge is what did Natalie Portman she had a lot of really bad lines.

@ Lettuce: I think the bad acting fits, it goes along with the late 70s, early 80s acting that was done in the OT

they'll probably make the nest 3 movies with the 3 kids of Leia and Han and Luke's Academy and the Emperor's return into one of his clones and Luke turning to the Darkside and leia rescueing him and a tri-duel between Palpy, Leia and Luke above the huge Ice mountains on Byss, then Luke returning to his Academy and the Ghost of Exar Kun training Kyp Durron in the ways of the Sith and stuff, really cool. Oh wait SPOILER!

5 Lightsaber battles is kind of misleading though... really only two of them were any good, the others were so short as to be forgettable. The final battle was probably the best in the entire series (even rivalling my former favorite, the TPM final battle), but the others were somewhat boring compared to what's come before.

Yes ROTS was heavily hyped, it's not a flawless film, but definately a great action movie, probably the best of the prequels in terms of entertainment value, and possibly more entertaining than some of the original movies in terms of action (but not in terms of likable characters and humor that works). For those who dislike too much CGI, ROTS would have been a nightmare.

RoTS actually had less CGI than AoTC. A lot of it was done with sets and miniatures.

That would be interesting if it were true. I know all three prequels made extensive use of miniatures and sets as well. Before ROTS came out we were hearing there was going to be NO location shooting, except the shots taken from Tunisia desert during AOTC that would be used. However this proved to be false and there were many background plates used from locations, merged digitally with whatever.

Another (correct me if I'm wrong) false rumor that seems to have been going around is that ROTS was the first "all digital movie." This honor seems rather to go to "The Rescuers Down Under" in 1990, which was filmed completely digitally. Or to AOTC, the first movie distributed in completely digital format (of course a "film" version of AOTC was also released, but I think they mean the first film distributed in digital format to digital theaters on the first run).

Uh... Rescuers down under wasn't filmed digitally. It was DRAWN digitally.

It still was done using film, but the process was done digitally, not like what they meant with AoTC which was filmed in digital format. And had a printing done to film.

And what I said about RoTS is true. And noone said RoTS was the first entirely digital movie. They were talking about AoTC being the first movie to be entirely filmed digitally, becuase it is.

Filmed, drawn, arggh, poor choice of words on my part! ;p

I know the tally for special effects shots done in ROTS was higher than AOTC, but you're saying a higher percentage of them were CG in AOTC? I guess you'd have to define what you mean by "more" or "less" CGI. Sort of like the "digital" thing.

Effects doesn't mean CGI automatically. Miniatures, background placement, etc. Those all are counted as effects. They used a lot more miniatures in this than in AoTC. Mustafar for example. And they did a lot of the backgrounds using photos and such rather than doing digitally rendered backgrounds. They used a lot more actual sets, rather than having a bunch of CGI sets rendered for scenes.
