So tonight is the night. I've got my ticket and ready to see the movie. How many of you are going to see Episode 3 tonight? I also wonder how many of you can't see this cause you are already in line.

How about those of us that have already seen the midnight session about 9 hours ago? [Wink]

It was good, very good. Still some sucky dialogue, but the plot in general was much better this time, I thought. And a lot of nice touches that tied up a lot of loose ends. Well worth seeing.

I've got my ticket and am sewing up the finishing touches on my costume right now. [Big Grin] It's not as good as I would like, but I never said I could sew. [crazy] I'll post pictures as soon as I'm finished and I have my wig done.

Today's Minneapolis Star Tribune had a blurb that stated that 20,000 people in Canada and 400,000 people in the UK listed their religion as "Jedi" in the last census!

Okay, my costume is finished. It looks pretty bad, but it's the first costume I've ever made so no laughing. [Wink]

This is what it is supposed to look like.

Here is a picture of me from the front. And here is one from the side where you can see my tiny pregnant belly. I thought I would look bigger than this at 5 months, but there you go. [crazy] Tell me what you think (unless it's bad, then I don't want to know [Razz] ).

Hmm, clever move going as a pregnant Amidala (I don' t suppose that was factored into the conception date [Wink] ) I can just see all the "Wow, you look like you're really pregnant, how did you do that?". Presuming they don't die of shock first from seeing an actual live female [Wink]

Costume looks good, too, by the way.

/actually, plenty of females at last nights show, more than I expected,really

I concur with csk... a few sucky details, but overall very nice work Mr. Lucas! The Force was relatively strong with you this time. [Big Grin]

Teh movie was teh suxx.

You people have lowered your standards based on the tripe that was EPs I and II.

Then again, I think that Star Wars IV - VI sucked.

Take from that what you will.

I was one of them, but more as a way of protesting about a question about religion in a government census. Next time they won't put such stupid questions in an important census [Smile]

I don't think it was anywhere near as good as the original trilogy, but it was much better than Episode I and II. A lot of the acting was still bad, but this time in a few scenes there was genuine affection between Anakin and Padme. And even if the rest of the movie was terrible the fight at the end between Obi-Wan and Anakin made the whole thing worth while. [Big Grin]

I was disappointed that some of my favorite lines from the book weren't in there. [Frown]

Maia and I went to the midnight showing last night and though she hadn't had much sleep the night before managed to stay up. We both thought it was the best of these first three episodes. It just felt more mature and I think they did a better job of developing Anakin's turmoil. Though its easy to see the family trend of whininess. Lightsaber fights were definitely pretty good and you got to see lots more of Yoda kickin ass.

BTW, very nice costume PB! We actually saw a Jar-Jar at the theater last night, the guy was up on stilts and everything.

So I have had time to contemplate on the movie. It is what I was hoping for. It was great. I thought the lines were alot better in it, except for the "I love you", "No, I love you more." line.

Excellent seqway (check spelling on that) between the Ep. 3 and 4. It also left me emotionally exhausted when it was done.

I loved the movie! There were some humorous moments. The news came and interviewed me for my darth vader costume too, but I don't have pictures. They said I was best dressed, but I'm from Wyoming, so there were only aout 600 people in line. I don't know if that's a lot or not!

As I said before, I'm not a Star Wars fan, and never was. I tried to ignore that and give the movie an honest chance.

It sucked.

Don't get me wrong. I thought the premise and the plot, and the story were quite excellent. The effects based on the cost, and the dialogue and acting were nothing short of poo.

Hayden Christensen was the only one who turned in a half decent performance.

Steph and I went to the 22:30 showing lst night. While it didn't suck nearly as bad as Episode II, it was still not even remotely as good as Ep. IV-VI.
