Revenge of the Sith

Just what the world needs. Another review of this movie. And a week late.
Spoilers ahead: stop reading now if that bothers you.
My wife and I saw the film in DLP at the Century 22 complex in San Jose. We are both big Star Wars fans and have been looking forward to seeing this for quite a while.
I'll resound what most others have said. Amazing visuals. Stilted dialogue. Same old awful attempts at humour. We loved it!
There were a couple places where I was laughing inappropriately. When the words of the plot story were being shown on the screen at the beginning, there is the line "Evil is everywhere". I initially read that as "Elvis is everywhere". This was immediately followed by the big space battle and Obi-Wan's craft is being attacked by all the machines; his whining reminded me of Wallace of Wallace and Grommit fame.
I got a little kick when Anakin says "R2D2, activate elevator 3224" as that's my Sun badge number. It's probably just a coincidence though.
So here's where the audience applauded. There weren't many occasions.
- Obi-Wan kills General Grievous with the machine gun and comments how uncivilized that was.
- A droid gets a shock from R2D2 then kicks it over.
- Darth Vader put on his helmet and does his deep breathing for the first time.
- Yoda nonchantly slams two of the Emperors guards into the wall.
There was also a little ripple of applause at the end.
We both thoughly enjoyed the movie, and when the Golden Master Directors Cut (or whatever its going to be called) of the six films is made available on DVD in a few months or so, we'll probably buy a set.
