The Sith's About To Hit The Fans... AGAIN!

Episode 3 is about to hit the fans again on Tuesday. I know I'll be happy to watch the GOOD prequel again and again in my happy zombie home! I loved me some Epsode 3! (That being said, I am convinced that that TPM and AOTC practical jokes. Either that or beta tests of LFLs CGI compooters.)

Anyways, will you be running out to buy it on Tuesday or do you already have it? Will you buy two copies (one to watch, and one to lock in a sealed vault) or did you think it sucked and you want your childhood back (in its original unmolested packaging)?

Discuss!

(P.S. Feel free to let the hate and/or love flow through you!)

I'm not in a hurry to see it again, I saw it twice in the Cinema & the second viewing was enough for now, I'll pick it up when it's going really cheap.

So you didn't like it, then? Or just "meh" on it?

I liked it fine, I have some issues like everyone else (NOOOOOOOOOOOO!, Lost the Will to Live, Wookies were unused, No Qui Gon, No Darth Vader kicking ass) I't just that I'm not in a hurry to see the story again, I'll probably wait until the new year to see it again, give it some time to feel fresh.

Wal-Mart has an exclusive bonus disc packaged with Ep 3 called The Story of Star Wars. Anybody know if that's something new or something out of the OT box that's been repackaged? Looks like this.

Hmm... that's weird. I don't have any idea. Looks like its something totally separate from the OT box bonus DVD... interesting... (probably just a bunch of filler, though...)

I'm with JL on this really, I saw it once and don't feel the need to see it again for a good while. Anakin's turn did not work and that really ruined it for me.

Not only will I buy this and find a way to watch it without power, but I will watch it over and over again filling up the rest of my pathetic existence with Anakin's chest and a powerful haunting, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

Yeah even though I had to keep switching between the three disks, I must've watched it a thousand times.

Yeah, I'll be buying and watching, then bitching, crying and watching again...........At least I will be able to watch Obi and Anakin battle in slow motion, thus finally working out WTF is going on during that scene...............

Didn't hate the film, OK for one watch, however, it bored the pants off me the second time in the cinema. The fights were shit and there were no suprises / shocks.

I also didn't like the new cross fades they (lucas) used , looked ike they edited with windows movie maker).

There was a good scene in the deleted clips where Anakin and Obi discuss battle plans silently, by doing little strokes on their faces. (ok that just makes it sound like half their faces dropped now and again or some sort of homoerotic fantasy (go burl!), watch the clip and you'll understand- i hope)

Anakins nipples didn't look real. They were just too perfect. I mean he's the male equivalent to Gretchen Mol.

I'm totally getting the DVD at midnight on Tuesday. My family and I have a fun night of junk food and Ep. III planned.

The first time I saw Ep III I saw it in a crowd of film geeks who spent a big chunk of time booing and hissing when people came on screen and spoke. The next night I saw it with a 12 year old boy neighbor of mine and we had a blast. I think the film holds up if seen from young eyes. Fuck Joseph Campbell, these stories are for the youth, anyone who takes them more serious than that has too much time on their hands.

Doc "I'm going to Sizzler" Falken raped my childhood (literally)!
or
Did we really need to hear about your dating habits?

I had to Google her. You're right - like pygmies' cocks.

4th viewing of this film at the cinema was the most satisying. Hopefully this film will hold up well over time and repeated viewings. Whether the prequels are good or shit, people to tend to be too hard on them in my opinion.

Anyway, if this film was 3 hours long, it would be potentially perfect. All the drastically cut scenes integrated back in. Why the fuck was that opening Space Battle over as soon as it begun. WTF WTF WTF WTF!?!?!?!?!? There is a helluva lot of story to cram into 2 1/2 hours alone. Too epic, too much of an arc. lLucas did a fine job, but it coulda been better. God knows what was cut out of this film apart from the scenes the DVD will re include.

Still, I'll be getting 2 copies for Christmas, 1 for me and 1 for my nephew, where'll watch it togother then I'll beat the shit outta him in a Hasbro Lilghtsabre fight afterwards. YEEAAAHEEEAAAAHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! I - AM - THE - SEEEEEEEEEENAAAAAAAAAAATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
