The last made film of the legendary Star Wars brings great hopes, that will be full filled. Don't forget to take some ice cream or popcorn, because once you start watching there's no stopping. Prepare yourself for a film of an epic battle between good and evil.
All I can say.

Wow! Is there anything else I could say to explain how much I think this movie should be seen and adored by all?! It is the kind of movie that can be loved by all different types and classes of people. It has it all. Drama,action,comedy...you name it.
Everyone has a point in their life where there is a choice that is made that will forever shape them. My choice was when I was 7 and my father took me to the movies to see Snow White in the theater and as we walked in the parking lot he asked me if I would rather see the other movie that was playing called "Raiders of the Lost Ark." That moment is one of my fondest memories because that cemented in me a love of adventure. The books I read, the places I go, my interests; they are all trying to make me feel like I did on that day when I was 7. God know what I would be like if I had picked Snow White...
The main reason I enjoyed this movie was to see the birth of Darth Vader. Again the choice of Hayden Christensen as the role of Anakin was not much to be enjoyed. Overall the movie was better than Ep1 and 2 and gave a convincing tie to the Classic Trilogy.
SWAoTC was a good movie. Much better than SWPM. I enjoyed it again, because of the back story of much loved characters. It is not as good as the Classic Trilogy, but a True Lucas/Star Wars fan should not discount the film entirely. Hayden Christensen is the absolute worst choice for Anakin Skywalker. Its sad Mr. Christensen is a pretty bad actor, even in other roles (the 2008 Jumper). I wish someone would invent a time machine, and go back and convince Lucas to recast Anakin. Oh well. :D
I've seen many Fan versions of SWI and they are better than Lucas' version. I liked the movie as it gives good back story to many characters that I loved in the Classic Trilogy. Jar Jar is not as bad as some people suggest, the voice is terrible, but the character is annoying at worst. I hope some one will do a Re-imagining of SWI someday.
One of the Best Lucas films ever

I've seen THX1138 more times than I've seen Star Wars. I feel it is one of the best Lucas Films ever. Sometimes I wish Lucas should of expounded on this movie and made sequels or variations of it as he did the Star Wars Saga.
Remastered version looks amazing...

I never saw the original THX before this version came out. Lucas did 'remake' some parts of it, ala the re-release of the original Star Wars Trilogy. Whether you agree with that or not, this movie looks and sounds amazing (see the interesting interview with the sound designer, evidence of what can be done with just the primitive equipment of 1971!) Lucas' version of the future, with mandatory state administered drugs, God as a spectral image in a phone booth, and all love outlawed. Duvall and Pleasence both deliver fine performances.
Jar Jar Binks. Need I write more? After waiting so many years for more installments in the "Star Wars" series, fans are disappointed with a childlike, naive, lame story, lame characters, lame dialogue. This film contains tons of positive elements and much potential, but is bad on so many other levels it's ridiculous. Couldn't Lucas surround himself with staff that would force him to realize what parts sucked? I don't get it. Can't wait for someone to remake this film.
