Subject: respect to george lucas !!
saw 'revenge of the sith' friday evening

not only was the film definately the best of all six star wars films,
at one point a sith and a jedi (darth sidious and joda if i remember correctly) are facing eachother, getting ready for a deciding duel

when, in the conversation, the dark sith lord, representative of all evil and the 'dark' side
sais:

"if you are not with us, you are against us"

ok old man, forget everything i ever said about your films
you rock!
respect!

smiling face cool
willem
P.S. the film would have been worth watching without that...

Will - "If you are not with us you are against us" (brandishing light sabre)

Sith Lord - "But wait Will, I am your Father!"

Will - "Dad, you've got to stop following me around like this; you're always cramping my style."

PS - We'll see the film this week; I prefer it to the remake of 'Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' which might be an uncomfortable remake, and Marvin the paranoid android looks too cuddly in the clips, for my liking.

Hi folks,

Saw the Stars Wars film last night. OK, it's what I would call a 'running and jumping' film (film snob that I am) but I'm with Willem that this was the best Star Wars and a cut above most action films we see today. Why? It's the clean philosophical theme, coming straight out of Goethe's 'Faust'.

Best line in the film for me was, "Fear of loss is a path to the dark side." That's a classic line and encapsulates the theme of the film.

Also, I like the sophisticated use of the CGI graphics, in which Lucas creates a believable future world, although I did wonder at one point where all those little flying taxis were going to, future Walmart maybe?

Good stuff.

That was Anakin actually ("If you're not with me, you're my enemy"). My favorite line is Obi-Wan's response to it: "Only a Sith thinks in absolutes."

Yoda's "You must train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose" is a good line as well.

Obsessed fan that I am, I'd have to say Empire is still the best, but that's not to insult Sith. One thing about III is that it somehow made IV better when I watched it again, to see what it's picking up from.
