    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 will wait until it comes to our only WIDESCREEN theater in town and see it there-it will probably play only once there but it will be worth it! I won't dress up this time (although I might sneak in a lightsaber or two)--if my son dresses up in his Darth Vader costume, I can say I'm 'holding it for him'-yeah, that would work....

    Then the long wait for the DVD!! I already have the soundtrack, read the book. Have all the others. Yeah, I'm weird like that!

    Can you believe I only saw the very first Star Wars movie? I don't know why I never saw the rest. At any rate, you all seem very excited about this new film, so I am really happy for you! I hope it's as good as you are hoping it will be!

    In an interview, Steven Spielberg said that the ending of this movie brought him to tears - that's how good it's supposed to be. I definitely want to see this movie since it is the climax.

    George Lucas is a huge proponent of 3D and plans to convert all 6 to 3D over the next few years.

    I just realized that I have opening day off from work - totally unintentional; just had a carryover day that has to be used and I have a family event early in the evening. So, I might try to catch a showing in the afternoon instead of waiting for the crowds to thin out.

    Heyang,

    Lucky you! I hope it won't be so crowded that I can't even get in. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

    When I read the book Episode 3, it brought tears to my eyes. What a terrible tragedy! Even knowing the happy ending of Return of the Jedi did not make this less tragic for me. I am sure it will be even magnified on the screen. George Lucas has taken a lot of rap (Undeserved, IMO) for the first two episodes. I hope this movie rewards him with praise he has deserved all along.

    Just 5 more days!

    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.

    Reviews are also saying that this edition makes the sense of Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones. I think i have to stop listening to stuff and getting my expectations too high.

    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!
