I'm not a guy to show emotions during movies, but I definitely felt the chill when that happened. Actually I think the most emotional part was when Anakin had just been defeated and Obi-Wan was doing his "...Chosen one!" bit.

I thought it was sweet. Not all "ET dying" sadness, but like "Ending of Psychonauts" sad. You feel complete when you see that part, you've completed the circle that is Star Wars.

I got kinda "emotional" (for lack of a better word) when Obi-Wan is telling Anakin that he loved him like a brother. That was a good scene. Ewan McGregor is an amazing actor...

The part that gets me EVERY TIME is when Anakin screams "I hate you" to Obi Wan. Great scene all around.

I didn't get emotional. The closest I got was chills during the crawl, opening space battle, and when they play the DOTF music. And I cried whenever Hayden talked to Portman. :shudder:

it was a bit sad when Obiwan talks to anakin after the fight, but when all of the jedi get wiped out and yoda feels it and drops his walking stick was worse. Music was perfect

I didn't get misty-eyed at all, actually, but there were some parts that were really emotional. Like after the Mustafar fight with Anakin's "I hate you!!!" and Obi-Wan's "You were the chosen one....We were brothers..." thing. That, and probably order 66, with a lot of it in the temple. They didn't really show that much of it, so it wasn't that big of a part, but if they had a scene with Anakin going through the temple killing all the people that would have been a really emotional scene.

Anakin's already had a taste of killing kids and families. It's old hat for him...

^Resistance is futile.

Anyway, I just saw the movie again, and my girlfriend was crying (it was the 1st time she saw it) when Anakin is trying to kill Padme. Strange...

Yeah! I did as well... I thought it was a little weird that I felt emotion about a Star Wars moment. When the original trilogy came out, I felt emotional in some cases. After watching the original trilogy for about twenty-five years, you forget that Star Wars can actually send quakes. Since people get use to the surprises, they seem to forget how they felt about:

1. Luke standing on Tatooine, and looking up at the twin suns.
2. The original cut of Han Solo shooting Greedo.
3. When Han was in trouble at the end of 'Empire Strikes Back."
4. Vader, "No! I am you father!"
5. The helplessness felt when Luke lost his hand, and he fell to his doom in a Cloud City structure.
6. Luke being exposed to Vader on Dagobah, and then he sees himself in the Vader Helmet.
7. Boba Fett dying.

Yeah! After beeing exposed to the original trilogy for twenty years, you do forget the moments that made you feel. Unlike Episode I and II, Revenge of the Sith is one of the best, but not the best in the series...

Well actually, he didn't die, I'm pretty sure George let him survive so people could write novels about him, but that's besides the point.

and the end was really sad too. I only wanted to cry cause I knew it all through. I could finally tell the complete story of Star Wars, whiich I then realized I couldn't cry because Darth Vader would look like a sissy crying. (The first time I saw it, I was in costume.)

I got the chills when Anakin was being burned alive and Obi-Wan just stood by (not that he could or would do anything), but after Vader's operation, which was really dramatic, he almost ruined the movie by yelling "Nooo!". Come on, Lucas couldn't think of anything better for Vader to say?

Yeah! I know what you mean...

At one moment in the movie, I got the scense of Vader being seduced by the darkside. In another part of the movie, I felt that his will was broken. Instead of a strong turn, I felt Anikan was helpless, and he thought there was no other way out... Very dramatic!! I loved it either way!!

Well, I always think that scene is a tribute to Frankinstein somewhat.

That, and What Else Should He Say?

"I LIVE AGAIN... *breathing*"
"Why? You Sure?"
"*Faints*"
"Palpy I want my Padme Back... Pleeeeease... Make me a Padme... I promise I will be a good boy~"
"No, I don't~"
"Now... Where did I spawn this time?"
"Hey, You There!"

It was quite deliberately so. Listen to the commentary on ROTS. GL says it himself. He wanted to emphasise that Vader was now an artifice of man, a tragic monster - just like Frankenstein

Sure, it was uncharecteristic as to what we've come to see Vader as, but GL also clearly states that Vader was never intended to be the ultimate badguy as he came to be known in the OT - morseo a very tragic/flawed character.
