This movie has got to have the worst thought out line ever. George Lucas needs to fire his script writers.


Yes, I'm referring to:


Noooooooooooooooooo!
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

Loved the movie, especially the way all the loose ends were tied up at the end, resolving the transition to Episode IV (A New Hope).


I have ONE nit-pickey thing that still sort of doesn't resolve itself from Episode III to Episode IV - In Episode I-through-III, young(er) Obi-Wan is almost constantly interracting with C-3PO and R2-D2, though countless adventures, often referring to the droids by name. As late as after his battle with Annikan on the volcano planet, Obi-Wan rides alongside 3PO as they bring Padmae home.

Here's my problem: In Episode IV (Star Wars), when Luke and 3PO go looking for R2, find him in the desert, are attacked by SandPeople, then rescued by Ben Kenobi (Obi-Wan) and brought to Ben's home, Obi-Wan NEVER acknowledges knowing or recognizing C3PO or R2D2. It's about 17 years later, granted, but how could he forget them???

That's about the only thing I think Lucas was unable to resolve in an otherwise FANTASTIC movie.

I thought the movie was great. My only complaints are:

1. How long does the Death Star take to build? It looked like it was a good way underway at the end of Episode III, but like 25 years later is the first time it becomes operational? What is that thing, a state highway project or something?
2. Obi-wan saying "only siths deal in absolutes." Word to Obi-wan, what you just said is an absolute too.

Other than that I loved all the action in the movie and thought it was way better than the first two episodes.

Revenge of the Sith much better than the first 2, probably ranks 2nd overall for me. It was much darker than I thought it would be with less 'comic' relief (killing younglings?) Although, the whole theater roared when Yoda shrugged off those two guards... that was sweet!

To add to the list of complaints, I would have to say that as advanced as the technology is in the time frame of Star Wars, they still have not figured out how to make labor easier and less painful for women and when Vader is being put together, I saw no morphine! Come on! How realistic is it that they would be in that much pain?

Lois: Honey, I thought I asked you to fix the faucet in the bathroom.
Peter: I did.
Lois: No you didn't, it's still dripping.
Peter: I will bet you all of my Star Wars guys that I did. Wait, except Boba Fett. No matter how sure I am, I never risk the Fett man.

and

Peter: Lois if you strike me down I shall become stronger than you can ever imagine (or something like that)

I never saw the 3rd one, but was inspired to post this... :-D
