SW Episode III

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

The Star Wars "saga" or the CBA talks?

:lol: Evil dark side, if the CBA talks will last the next 27 years i'm doomed. :devil:

But in the end all becomes good. (after 28 years and episode VI.... :? )

ps: I'm going to watch the movie within the next weeks for sure. (The last time i was at a movie theater was Lord Of The Rings, part 3.)

i just came back from the theatres and i gotta say.... i like it. :shock: it's a helluva better than episodes i and ii, although the acting is still wooden and the scenes between hayden christensen and natalie portman still seem strained... but nevertheless, the effects/action sequences were superb and anakin skywalker's journey to the dark side, in my opinion was well done.

i think it's worth the $8.95.

I was something like 12 or 13 when Star Wars, Ep. IV first came out. I loved it so much I, like many of my friends, went to see it over a dozen times... It's been downhill ever since then, with it's lowest point being the whole Jar-Jar Binks fiasco :mad: . This episode was okay, not exhilarating like the Ep. IV was for me, but I wouldn't fork out another $8 for it... And I probably won't be buying it on DVD when it comes out (I'm sure Lucas will come out with Platinum Special Edition by Christmas 2005, A Special Extended 3 Episode DVD by Christmas 2006, etc. etc.).

:D Me too. But i'm sure i watched it with different eyes than nowadays. The latest movie was not bad but nothing really special like it was 20 years ago.

Well, I just saw episode 3 yesterday. It sure made up for a lot of 1 and 2, but the acting of the originals just wasn't there. Not a bad flick for $5.....


Vader is arguably the best movie bad guy of all time.
