Episode II tributes to other amazing films!
Ok this movie was just plain amazing. Apart from the main cool stuff (Yoda, Padme, Seismic charges, etc.) I found myself getting a feeling of deja vu in a few scenes. Like when Obi Wan gets his first look into the cloning facility. Now, I may have still been hyper from the Matrix II preview, but that looked a lot like the field of human embryos/harvesting pods in the Matrix. Also, the traffic on Coruscant looked a LOT like New York City in Fifth Element (complete with person diving into it). I mean, they were flying a yellow speeder too! Also, the epic camera pan of the death arena that Padme and Anakin are led into seemed very reminiscent of Gladiator. I thought it was awesome that 3 of my favorite movies seemed to pop up briefly in this amazing film. I can't wait to get out and see it again... and again
