For the ever-so-hopeful geek in us all (SW Ep 3 spoilers)

From The Force.net

Sheesh, I just finished reading the first article when the dude made the comparison shot. So, maybe we will get to see Star Destroyers in Episode 3. Maybe that'll start a rule: all the good Star Wars movies have Star Destroyers in them.

lol. How the hell did he figure that out? Amazing.

#3 has GOT to be better than the first two.

Don''t count on it! I know I have lost all faith.

Well 2 was supposed to be better then 1... I don''t think that really paned out. At least one had an excellently choreographed saber dual withe great music. 2 didn''t even manage that. I''m sure I will go see it but after the whole Yoda thing I''m afraid I have lost my faith, or well would have if I lived in england and had checked Jedi on the census but I guess that is for a different thread :).

I personally really enjoyed EP.2. A lot of cheese, sure, but still a fun movie. The new trilogy will never rate as high as the original, but I believe in the end, if you don''t try to tear it apart, and just watch it for what it is, it will make for a fun trilogy.

Besides we''ve got Peter Jacksons LOTR Trilogy now.

The thought of that scene still gives me shivers. The worst part was, people in the theater were cheering...loudly! I thought there was something I was missing.

I''ll see it, and buy the DVD when released, but Lucas really had a golden opportunity to kick some major ass and fell well short. If you compare the move to Fellowship of the Rings, and I understand 2 completely different movies, but the whole Fellowship production was soooo good, and the Star Wars production left me feeling hollow.

But #3 has to be better. I hear it is dark and the good guys lose, so that has the potential to be different and good.

I''m guessing that they are going to have to go into the ""dark ages"" to revert to those clunky old X-Wing, Y-Wing, and Land Speeders.

As long as the Falcon remains the fastest ship in the Galaxy, I''ll be pleased.

I think part of the reason the new trilogy leaves me a bit cold and hollow is becuse I was so young when I first saw the first three films I had no cares, no bills, no responsibilities etc.

Nowadays i find it a lot harder to suspend disbelief, I keep thinking to myself, ""Hmm that''s a very poor CG shot"" and ""damn, Yoda was better as a muppet"", wheras when I was a kid I was going ""Dad can I have an X wing?"" or ""Dad can I become a Jedi?"" I think it''s very hard to recapture the magic of the older trilogy because now I''m old and jaded and bitter and know the difference between good CGI and good acting as opposed to bad CGI and bad acting

""Dad can I become a Jedi?""

A lot of the Aussies are listed as believers of the Jedi Knight religion

Jokes aside, I really hope part 3 gets better than the first two. My gf was with me in the movie and she laughed so hard through the whole movie. She thought the movie was meant to be funny, especially the Yoda scene. When I told here Lucas was dead serious about this she laughed even more. Opened my eyes as a SW fanboy a bit ;).

lol.

When Natalie Protman fell out of the transport near the end of the movie and was wencing in pain on the ground not able to move...then someone ran over to her and asked if she was ""ok""? She JUMPED right up and was like ""yea, lets go!"". The whole theater laughed. She was JUST unable to move, then all of a sudden she was fine and jumping up and running away. good stuff.....good stuff..

ah...now that is directing!

oh don''t remind me of that one. Sometimes I wonder if most movies ever undergo some test showings in selected theatres? Scenes like that cannot go unnoticed. Never ever :D.

Well..

They killed Han''s coolness first. Then they killed the Force (midichlorians), the Jedi, the ""Trusty Sidekick"" (Jar Jar), Anakin, Yoda, Boba Fett, and... Well, what''s left?

Thus, Episode 3 cannot possibly suck more than previous ones.
