Flying Wookies!

One long and torturous week after opening, I finally got to see Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

I’m sure everyone’s already up to their ears in reviews, so to keep things brief I thought it was fabulous, but was expecting a little bit more. The action was incredible, but it wasn’t enough to take the ‘best movie’ title from Episode V. Random commentary and possibly (look at me, I’m a warning!) spoilers ahead.

R2-D2 has been my favourite character since I was a kid. Hurray for the spunky little droid and all the scenes they gave him! I was happy to finally learn whether he does or does not get his memory wiped. R2 knows…

Badass Windu is just the coolest Jedi ever. It was incredible to see him channelling/reflecting Sidious’s Force lightning. But couldn’t Kit Fisto have been given a more noble death? I know he wasn’t a central character, but still!

I love Wookies! Yoda riding a Wookie, now that’s too adorable.

All the battles and fights were terrific. Well orchestrated with incredible graphics. Don’t you want a giant lizard now? I want a giant lizard now.

There’s been a lot of disappointed over Hayden Christensen’s portrayal of Anakin, and some of his deliveries were unintentionally hilarious. But really, how many young actors can you think of who wouldn’t sound ridiculous spewing out how “together we can rule this galaxy!”

I’ve seen a lot of rave reviews and a few that thought it was absolutely horrible, to me it was somewhere in between. 7/10 would do. I left the cinema thinking it was mind-blowing, but a few hours later I feel like putting on some Star Trek instead.

On a different note, I tried playing the demo of Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. Hah, I officially proclaim myself to be hopeless at fighting games! I um… blew up Chewbacca.

    Yup, I really enjoyed the movie, too. Except for that one part, of course. But it was a great close-up for the series and I can’t wait for them all to be released together on DVD!

    ok number 1:for those of you who would like to know, the giant lizard is called a Varactyl.ok number 2:yes i am a starwars NUTnumber 3:Kit Fisto SHOULD have had died better, but was unprepared for Sidious’ Thrust (lol sorry can help laughing) attack, as it would catch any jedy by suprice, and is hard to deflect. If Darth sid used force pull, it was unavoidable.number 4:I WANT MORE USE OF FORCE GRIPnumber 5:seeing the lil kids staring at evil anakin was unavoidable, it had to be shown. the atmosphere wouldnt be right.number 6:the star battle sequence at the beginning was UBER. number 7:i am evil, completley, so i loved seeing the clones killing jedi, anikin about to lil kids, and the chamber he was in bend around him (when he’s vader) i also loved seeing the mini star destroyers and the unfinished death star there.UBER. Evil 4 TEH win!number 8:Cya alter all.

    I thought it was great but way too violent.You’d think as advanced as they were they could’ve gotten Anakin on some meds to help him with those issues…

    Hey there, found your site while trawling for themes. I love this purple turtle btw, its fantastic.But I’m commenting here because… it’s not actually clear if R2 knows everything… he may not actually know about the twins, because he’s not present at the birth. The only three who clearly know is Yoda, Obi, and Leia’s father (whose name I forget). 3PO’s mind is wiped because he knows too much about the dark force, and who Anakin is etc, etc, but it’s also not clear if he knows about the twins. Cunning huh?! Coz, I was thinking the same thing until my partner explained it to me!Anyway, great layouts.
