    Definately, the Fett background adds that much more value to the movie. The c3po/r2 antics were hillarious

    I think that the first half was a little slow and some of the dialouge was a little corny. but the movie reached a turning point when R2 and C3PO returned to their comical antics. As for being worth twice the ticket price, well I've already seen it twice, so I guess it was worth at least twice the price. BTW the tickets here were under $7. I personally did not like episode 1 as much as the rest of the starwars series, but let's be fair now, those are tough films to compete with.

    Samuel L Jackson lives up to his reputation as stated on his wallet in Pulp Fiction. What else can I say about it without giving away too much. It is really cool how it foreshadows on the original three, episodes 4-6 that is. I think the whole Fett story is kinda interesting.

    Anyway, I don't think I can say much more without giving away too much.

    I enjoyed SW Ep. 2. The ending was the best part. This girl definitely has a crush on Yoda. And yes, I saw it Wednesday night opening night. I didn't stand in line but friends did stand in line 6 hours for tickets. I am not saying anything more. I don?t want to ruin it for anyone.

    I am definitely an SW geek, so I guess I am bias. One thing I liked about AOTC is that it seemed like Lucas geared this one specifically to hardcore SW fans. People who have seen the other 4 movies multiple times and follow the story line in depth (sad as it is, I am guilty as charged LOL).
    In my opinion this one (unlike Ep 1) tied a lot of plot elements together that are present not only in the final 3 movies, but also in the book series. Again I don't want to drop spoilers so I will keep specifics to myself for a couple of weeks until everyone that wants to see it without preconceptions has had a chance, but in my opinion this movie had a lot of things that hardcore SW fans have been asking for without some of the things that the hardcore fan did not want (i.e. less Jar Jar haha).

    Seen the clones, I have... Not bad at all. I can't say it was the most intriquing of movies that I've seen, but ditto on the fight seen. It was a treat to see him move. It was better than EP1, although some of the storyline was a little too accentuated.

    My thought is that the movie was only mediocre in the SW line, because Lucas continued an over-detailed focus on things unrelated to the major plot, spending time on things that much of the audience already knows, without lending small intricate twists and throwing a few bones. He has left himself a lot of timeline for the 3rd installment, which may lend to an even better EP3 in the years to come.

    Overall, definately worth seeing; although for those that have to pay $10-12 a theater show, it might be worth waiting for the rental.

    Especially the ending fight scene. It's amazing....
    YES! Without giving too much away I will just say that the ending fight scene alone is worth twice the price of admission!

    hahah sorry, I didn't intend that as a direct comment on your post, but more of an anguished cry out... I found Ep. to be decent, although like you pointed, had its flaws, but still a decent SW flick. Many have taken the track that anything from Lucas this point forward isn't worth anything because he screwed up so bad with EP1, a point of view I just can't see. I am a far cry from the SW geek too, I collect no figurines, laugh at those that camp out for tickets, etc... However, can't wait, EP2 tonight...

    Ep 1 was pretty good, but I still saw some flaws.
    Ep 2 was much better, but still had a little flaw here and there (Crappy dialogue for Anakin at times)
    But besides that, Ep 2 is defiently worth seeing in theaters.
    Especially the ending fight scene. It's amazing....

    EDIT:
    But there was one REALLY bad part in the whole movie. There is this guy in a big bulky suit of metal, and he is talking, and he says he is from the "Techno Union" or something like that but it is all distorted and I was laughing my ass off when he was on the screen for those 2 seconds.
    EDIT2:
    After research, I found out his name is "Wat Tambor", and he is a senator which makes droids and he's a sepratist.

    Don't misunderstand my post. I loved Ep. 1 too. I am saying that AOTC is BETTER than Phantom Menace. I never quite understood the vitriol directed at Phantom Menace either. Phantom Menace had some problems, but overall it was great. If you liked Phantom Menace, you will LOVE AOTC.
    My $0.02...

    Star Wars Ep. II AOTC

    I went to see Attack of the Clones this morning. It was awesome. Episode 2 was much better than the Phantom Menace. Has anyone else seen it yet? What did you think?
Working...
