    Who plans to see Starwars Episode 3 on opening day?

    I have waited for this for 3 years. I am hoping to get tickets for the opening night of Revenge of the Sith. In the past people used to camp out to get the tickets. Now we may be able to buy them on line.

    What are my expectations?

    Great fight scenes, technical effects, powerful music, and great emotional scenes. It is a sad story, and it is the last piece of the puzzle of how Anakin Skywalker became Darth Vader. I have read the book already, but it is quite different to watch it on the screen.

    I am counting days till May 19th.

    Vash......what we plan to do is to rewatch the last two prequels,then this last installment, and then go home and have a marathon Star Wars movie revisisted, counting back the episodes until the last scene of "Return of the Jedi", where the spirits of Anakin, Obi-won, and Yoda appear and wave a final salute to Luke Skywalker, the last of the great Jedis..........................42

    I like to wait till the crowds thin out, then I'll go and see it.

    I bought my tickets two weeks ago. I am so psyched for this movie, especially since the word of mouth is that Revenge of the Sith is fantastic.

    To my surprise, I was able to buy tickets on line very easily, for the show of my choice. I will see it May 19th evening, and I am psyched about it.

    Show42, in the last 2 weeks I have watched Episodes 1 & 2 (in fact for the last few years I have been watching all 5 Starwars tapes fairly often)- in that order. Once the episode 3 tape/DVD is out, I am planning to watch all 6 in a row.

    I expect episode 3 to be the grandest of them all. Even if it is not, George Lucas deserves a lifetime achivement award for creating the most memorable movie series of all times. In addition, he revolutionized movie making, with the use of digital technology.

    I read some of the reviews on IMDB and most reviewers gave it 9 or 10. That is very different from the response to the first two prequels.

    Over at the Rotten Tomatoes website the critics seem to have embraced the movie as well. It's gotten much better reviews than the other two prequels, and even Return of the Jedi.

    Great plan, Show! Back in the mid '80's a theater near me had a marathon viewing of the first three in order, with a half hour break in between. It was awesome. Unfortunately, I never did see the first two prequels in the theater (only saw them on HBO), but I think I will have to see this last one in the theater. I'll see if I can get tickets sometime next week. Maybe I'll take an afternoon off!

    Vash and everybody going to see it on opening day, have a blast! Back in '83, I waited on line five hours to see Return of the Jedi on opening day, and it was an experience I'll never forget. May the Force be with you!

    I just got back from seeing it and it was Great! The force was certainly with me because although I had made reservations for the 7:45pm show, I was able to get into the 6:15pm without standing in the line at all. The theater was nearly full. When the movie started and ended, the audience applauded. Between those two ends there were many emotions. I cried toward the end. The special effects and battle scenes are phenomenal but what makes it work is the story which is told at a fast pace. There is not a dull moment or a superfluous scene.

    A must see!

    Ooops - thought opening day was Friday. Anyway, I had my day off and it was a horribly rainy afternoon - the perfect kind for a movie. I got there in time for the 1:30 show after making sure that there were plenty of seats left - I would've waited for the 2PM show if the only seat was in the 1st row.


    Anyway, I agree with Vash - wonderful movie. Really brought everything together amongst all the episodes. I didn't cry, but I did get teary at certain moments - the utter betrayal felt devastating.

    For those of you worried about the PG-13 rating.... there were a lot of battle scenes and it was definitely more serious and darker than all of the other movies. Some of the violence wasn't on camera, but might be disturbing for a very young child. Parents know what their kids can and cannot handle - I told my brother that my 5 yr old nephew wouldn't have a problem with the battle scenes, but that they storyline and length of the movie might be beyond him.

    I agree Vash and heyang - the movie was awesome!! Honestly I wish it had been released on IMAX screens only, because regular theaters are too small to accommodate the huge scope of the film. George Lucas redeemed himself after the first 2 disappointments. Very exciting!

    just coming in now to say that I saw it midnight of the 19th.... along with my mom and a ton of my friends... I loved it from beginning to end. I ended up hating Yoda (how he could ask such a thing of Obi-Wan I just don't understand!) crying during Obi-Wan's final scene with Anakin... and wishing it didn't have to be that way lol

    I have seen it 4 times, and really don't think I will see it another time. Not that it's not a great movie, it's in my top two favorites of the Star Wars saga, but it's such a draining film... lol

    Ewan McGregor and Ian McDiarmid both OWN this film. Not that Hayden doesn't do a great job, but seriously Ewan is dead on with the Alec Guiness Manerisms, and Ian reprising his role as the Emperor... seriously the man was the anti-Christ in this film. He was amazing. Yeay for the Scotsmen!!!!!
