    MOTHER FUCKER!

    The projector at my theater died with about 30-40 minutes to go. I waited in fucking line for 2.5 hours in addition to waiting for tickets a few weeks ago, and now I have to go to work in 4.5 hours.

    Worst. Film. Experience. Ever.

    I am absolutely speechless. I cannot believe this fucking happened to me.

    Wow... that would suck royally. Out of all the films to go see and have the projector die, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith would not be a good film for that.

    One question I have, does Owen and Beru know what happened to Anakin?

    Joe: All we have to go on is Owen telling Luke that "he died about the same time as your father". While we know that Owen knows more than he is telling Luke, he probably thinks Anakin is dead, and wants to forget Obi-wan existed. (He probably blames Obi-Wan for Luke not knowing his father or mother)

    Matt, damn, I don't know what to say... my presentation went well but the volume was a bit low. I already can't wait for the DVD, cause except for the shared crowd experience there's not much theater's offer really, I've had a lot of "I'm getting too old for this lately!"

    As for voting, I'm gonna see RotS a few more times first.

    I'll toss in that it worked very well by accentuating stuff from the PT that needed it (Tusken slaughter, mother's death) and skipping the stuff that didn't (Sifo-Dyas).

    Plus it adds a lot to ANH but does hurt a scene. I'll never buy Vader's reaction to seeing Obi-Wan again. Instead of the circle is complete, how about you left me burning alive you *#^$%#$#$%!

    Force question of the day:

    How is the force brought into balance at the end of episode 6?

    At the end of ROTJ we are left with one Jedi knight - Luke and one force-sensitive - Leia.

    That makes two for the light side and none for the dark.

    Where or what are the offsetting components to counteract these light side aspects?

    Lou,

    "Balance" doesn't necessarily mean an equal presence of good and evil. Were the Sith as numerous as the Jedi, they would likely overpower them, and plunge the universe into a violent dictatorship. That would not be "balanced". Balance can mean harmony, peace, stability, all of which are achieved when the Sith are finally defeated.

    Matt:

    I'm really sorry about that. I hope you can go see ROTS again today.

    I'm not voting until I see ROTS again....it will end up anywhere from #1 to #3 but I need to see it again first. If the emotional impact remains the same, it will be #1.

    yeah, hard to vote right after a screening. Too much swirling around in the mind...and heart.

    I'll may need several more viewings before I can accurately give ROTS it's ranking destiny.

    Yeah, Tim, you really just need to see ROTS 31 more times...then rating problem solved!

    After the Impulsive, Most Impulsive...Master Replica Lightsaber purchases recently believe me, 31 more times is not a possibility. [​IMG]

    Trying not to look at any other posts...[​IMG]
    I'm still very, very pissed off. I stopped by another theater at lunch and picked up a ticket for 6:45 tonight. Meanwhile, I'm very, very tired.
    Bastards.
