and it rocked!. I won't talk about it until thursday so that I don't spoil anything.

I got to go to a sneak preview of the film. There were a total of 10 people in the theater.

What could you possibly say that would spoil it?

Anakin does the Queen - we all know that - maybe that might animate Natalie Portman's acting a little.
Jar Jar is still in it - Qui Quon should have cut his head off in the first movie
There are some big-ass battle scenes with lots of special effects.
Maybe the Jedi are in trouble, maybe not, but Yoda and Obi-wan survive, and Anakin starts moving to the Dark Side.

I will see it eventually, but I can't imagine there is anything at all surprising.

Just got back from the midnight showing. AOTC is an awesome movie! I was not disappointed in the least, and TPM makes sense now!

quantumfluff, there are plenty of surprises to go around.

Saw the 12:01 showing.

I'd have to say my favorite part was the lightsaber fight with evil bad guy. First he downs one jedi. Then he downs another. Who will save them? Then... hehehehehe its just too good to give away.

Overall, I'd say it was better than ep 1.
Still way too much Jar Jar footage for my taste, though.

[Edit: Removed what little spoilage there was.]

i will never see a movie more than once. Except LOTR. That one was good all 12 times. Maybe i will see AOTC more than once, but not 12, that is for sure.
