There! I posted! It really isn't any one of those choices. It was sad, as in making one cry. Poor Padme; poor Jedi. And also amusing in parts...the graphics were beyond awesome...and occasionally parts sucked. So, all of the above!
Ah yes, corrupting. That's how I was brought over to the Better Side. What was your method for converting me, Master?
Alistair turned to the Darkside because she liked Joan and chocolate, right?

Haha, now I suck... just like the movie, I guess. Great special effects wasted on horrible everything else. Unecessarily graphic. Horrific acting ("You're beautiful." "Only because I'm so in love." "I'm the one in love." "Then love is blind?"). What's even sadder is if it had been properly done it could have been really good. George Lucas could have had everyone in the theatre sobbing their li'l eyes out but instead they're covering them.
I shall now go watch Lord of the Rings, a movie which has great special effects AND good acting, heaven forbid.

Yes, I noticed, and screamed.
READ THE RULES. NO SPOILER POSTING WITHOUT SPOILER TAG!!!!!!!
I don't know whether Sblomie's opinion was spoilerful enough to merit a warning, but anymore WILL result in a warning.
I found that the acting was far better than it was in AotC. The romance was not so overdone, and not so annoyingly cliché. Lucas could've done better, yes, but the effects were incredible, and the acting was far better than in AotC. Execpt for Obi-Wan. He wasn't tramuatized looking enough. *grins*
Yeah, that's my opinion. I wrote a better review in my journal, though.
YAY FOR DUEL OF THE FATES!
A New Hope and Return of the Jedi remain my favorites. Return of the King topped Revenge of the Sith for rating... because it got a 4.75 star rating... and RotS only gets 4 stars for me...

Unless they have a magic boat. If they have a magic boat, I'm pretty much doomed.... *cough*

Argee I do. They should have had a new theme music though. If you can beat DotF...but I thought Williams could. A lot of the music was background-unremarkable...but of course i have to go see the flick again to watch for things like that and not be so emotionally hinged on it, waiting for Kit to speak...which he didn't...GRR! He did in the book. And in the book they had more scenes which openly pointed to the eventual formation of the Rebellion, which i think should have been in there more.

Yeah, Cy, get the soundtrack. Battle of the Heroes...wepicness beyond all things. I prefer it to DotF, IMHO. It wasn't very fitting in certain parts of the movie, but it's wepic. No language signing, though, but the "ahhh"s are very wepc still.
Sad movie, but I loved it. i wasn't bothered by anything violent...but after seeing the Passion, nothing is violent. I cried during that movie too, regardless of lots of violence...maybe BECAUSE of lots of violence. IMHO, it can add more drama to a scene...or deter from it.
I've come to the conclusion that with RotS you either like it or don't. My whole fam likes it. A lot of my friends don't.
