Just saw the new star wars (maybe spoilers...)

and it was... nearly as good as the old ones. it was great. dont get me wrong with the "nearly as good as..." cause im a devoted fan of the old movies, but this one owned. i dont want to get into too much detail but the emperor palpatine was made a real ****head, and i almost cried when a young padawan, maybe 8 years old, came from hiding behind a chair and asked anakin "there are too many of them, what are we going to do master skywalker?" and anakin slaughters them all...

A M A Z I N G ! ! !

i highly recommend if you're a fan, i highly recommend if you're not a fan.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

hm.. its gonna be interesting watching a star wars movie where the bad guys win completely. (Empire strikes back doesn't really count because they were still alive in the end.) We are so used to watching movies where the good guys always win.

There really isn't bad guys or good guys, just different points of view.

Can't Wait to see it =)
Can you just confirm one thing for me... Has Qui-Gon been dropped completely?

he gets mentioned in the end of the movie, sort of to make connection between obi-wan and him. but you dont see him in the movie. didnt mind that, i always thought he fits better in a 60's biker film

=C Qui-Gon for teh win!.... He was originally a Force-Ghost in Ep III :(

Hopefully Obi-Wan is shown for the jedi is truely is, the greatest All Round Jedi to have ever lived.

mentioning qui-gon is excactly related to the force-ghost thingy. ill let you see it :) and obi-wan is held in very high glory, i mean, i sort of dont like it. how, HOW can obi-wan defeat anakin. guess the pure hate etc. made ani that much weaker... ah well, it still owns :b

Anikan might be stronger because of the Dark Side. That doesn't necessarily translate into a better fighter (i.e. dicipline, technique, strategy).

Anakin has one major downfall, Emotions. Obi-Wan has the most balenced Fighting Style and knows Anakin all too well, also he has many more years experience than the chosen one.

Actually I always thought that feelings and or emotion is what made a better fighter..once learned to control them.
heart=fire.

um, I haven't seen it, but I thought obe-wan ran off and hid in the desert.

yoda also.

I thought anakin pwns all the nooblar jedi with his sheer passion, which is what the siths use to derive their power.

Now I haven't seen it, but I thought just as the last couple weeny jedi were running off, anakin gets hit in the head with a piano, and instead of dying gets saved and turned into darth vader.

but i haven't seen it yet.

Your feeble skills are no match for the power of the Dark Side!

Now, when you say it's nearly as good as the old one, do you mean that this movie is more character-driven than it is effects-driven? The overuse of special effects at the cost of character driven plot made the last two prequels pale imitations of the original Star Wars movies. I'm still going to see this one, regardless of how effects-driven it is simply because it is the last Star Wars movie.

but...but...but stuff blows up!!! come-on! effects and fight scenes baby!!! I'm sure anakin will be cranky enough in between mind popping light saber duels and mad tie fighting action that I'll be fine with his development!

Seeing it tonight. In fact I'm leaving in about an hour and a half to go queue up for like 5 hrs. I have a feeling that I'm overdoing it, but I really don't want to wait outside in the cold. Besides, the friend I'm going with says he knows people who are there already.

Here's hoping the hype is true.

yeah its more character driven, as i said, especially emperor is a real *deleted* in it. though, it has way more fighting than 1 and 2 also, its just a perfect mix now. no more blaa blaa, but when there is some blaa blaa, its actually deeper than a can of milk.

Ankeli,
Your choice of wording could use some serious refinement.

I'm already completely spoiled, and as such I probably won't see it for a couple weeks (that and next week is exams, and this week is when everything is due).

A lot of people don't care though, a couple guys came dressed up as jedi to my 9am class and were swordfighting with plastic lightsabers. The weird thing is that you'd expect that kind of behavior out of nerds or something, these were a couple of frat boys... :lol:

I think I am one of the few people on the planet that really has no interest. I may rent it when it comes out. Never got into Star Wars that much.
