So I Saw Star Wars Epizode III, too
By Roman Strobl on V 26, 2005
Yesterday I finally went to see Epizode III. My expectations were high, although I knew it won't be like when I saw the original series for first time. The new series is seems to me more for mass audience than the original Star Wars. Anyway, I could not skip it, at least due to my curiosity.
Greetings to our St. Petersburg colleagues!
The first thing I've noticed was how extremely LOUD are all the ships in the space - we all know there's no way how sound is spread in free space, because it's almost vacuum, but nevermind. One of the disadvantages of being adult is that you doubt this kind of things and don't trust everything the filmmakers show you, which is a pity for us, because we loose part of the excitement.
I've enjoyed the movie, the beginning was a bit boring, but the story once the story started accelerate, I got absorbed by it completely. I especially liked the part when Anakin goes through the transformation from a good guy into a bad guy, although his original motives were all of good kind. Although it's not visible how he murders the small Jedis in the temple, the imagination works in this case wonderfully and seeing all the dead bodies of Jedi children was quite moving.
The effects were really wonderfull, I also liked how the scenes switched fast, it made the movie very dramatic. Epizode III is definitely a must-see in a cinema, the experience is boosted by Really Big ScreenTM with Genuine Sound SystemTM. I guess if I saw the movie just on DVD I would not enjoy it so much. I also liked the animal Obi-Wan drove, Lucas Arts came in every epizode with great and original flora and fauna.
Btw, do you know Star Park? It's a parody on both Star Wars and South Park :-) An amazing idea. Check out the Star Park gallery or the Star Park musical here:
