And they didn't cut the pointless little mushy ones that made me gag.
Well, it isn't all about you, is it? The mush, though cliché, was not pointless in my mind... it served well to illustrate Anakin and Padmé. Gag all you want. And some of the screenplay was bad. But it wasn't the worst I've ever seen, and it was in character for what they were portraying. At least, the "love has blinded you" scene was. I think Anakin did a really good job for what he was worth in those scenes.
Certainly they cut some scenes that some people would've liked to see... but in all likelyhood they'll appear in the DVD cut scenes.
They weren't pointless little mushy scenes. RotS wouldn't be RotS without those "pointless" scenes... not to me... and I'll say honestly right now that I really appreciated the first scene with Anakin and Padmé, even if they overdid it by carrying on too much. Anakin's expression and slight stammering on learning Padmé was pregnent was priceless and perfect.
Dear GL needs to go back to hiring people to write for him...like MEEEE!! *cackles*
Then why don't you write what you think should have happened. *snrk*
I'd be a little less hard on the guy, script writing is tougher than it looks, you have to try to please everybody.
What she said. Try writing a script that pleases everyone. RotS, though tacky in some places, was a good balance between mush and action, angst and humor... And they didn't cut a scene in the middle of the duel between Artoo and Threepio regarding engine fluid... so thus it was good.
Sure, he could've had everyone sobbing... but I think the mush that most of you are complaining about gagging over was essential to show Anakin's betrayal of Padmé, and just how much it hurt.
Perhaps I'm the only one on this site that liked that scene... get over it! I didn't like the dreams much, I thought their returning to the Jedi Temple to be just a bit tame for what had just occured, I loved the piece with Whie, and I thought Padmé's death was just a bit... *crosses eyes and dies*
