Okay, since this is the Ep III thread I'm going to be perfectly honest here about my reaction to the movie:
First off, I'm not a big star wars fan to begin with. I've seen all the movies and I thought EP I & II sucked. EP I especially. I wasn't disappointed because I really wasn't expecting much, and in some ways I was pleasantly suprised, but overall it was a bad as I expected.
I'll start with what I liked: Samuel L. Jackson kicking some major butt. My friend thought he should have brought more Jedi with him (maybe some that were competent and didn't get killed in less than a second), but my reactionw as, this is Sam Jackson, he needs no backup.
Obi-wan, Ewan did a wonderful job and channeled some Alec Guiness at moments. He did a really awesome job with what he was given.
Oh, and I think for the first time we got to see some actual weather in a star wars movie! Rain!
What I disliked: The plot was weak, but then all these prequels had questionable plots.
Anakins sudden leap to the darkside, did someone flip a switch or something?
The Emperor's disfigurement from force backlash. I always thought it was cuz he used the force to keep himself alive for so long, the truth was less impressive in my eyes.
Amidala and Anakin's complete and utter lack of any on screen chemistry. Maybe it's because Anakin was played by an actor even more wooden than Keeanu Reeves?
How come no other Jedi noticed Anakin wore black all the time? Hello? CLUE?
No one could detect the emperor's evilness?
No jedi could figure out this plot that involved thousands of clones across the galaxy?
No clone had second thoughts about killing the Jedi?
The battle robots were cute and all, but they suck at fighting! Am I the only one who noticed that?
No sense of chronology - Amidala is thin and pregnant, then a few minutes later she's rounder than a beach ball. What happened there?
I kept wondering why the hell a robot was coughing - until the closeup of grevious' eyes and then I realized he wasn't a robot.
The fact that Jedi, which are supposed to be big badass commando types were leading regiments, and were killed off with incredible ease. Lucas has these incredible plotholes that irritate me. These Jedi powers work - unless I need them not to for some strange plot point. Argh! How about some internal consistency!
My biggest complaint: Where the hell were all the women? I don't think any woman other than Amidala had a speaking role. And the female Jedi only got about twenty seconds of screentime and that was just to be shown in some tight fitting outfit before being slaughtered. I'm not normally some bra-burning man-hating feminist, but this pissed me off for some reason.
Blah. The End.(though I'm sure there is a bunch of stuff I forgot)
