Monterey Geek claims to have seen REVENGE OF THE SITH and splooges on the blue dress of fandom!

Hey folks, Harry here with something fun as hell. I heard that there was a screening coming, but I heard it was 2 weeks to 2 and a half weeks away. However, did he see the film? I don't know, but his coyness about a revelation 2/3rds of the way through the film - and who reveals that revelation - has my ass doing a "Guess Who" game - cuz who it is told to, would be my pick for the best thing about the first two films, but apparently it's another character that is the best thing about the first two, but not these two. ARGH! Cuz when you begin to think who is dead and who is alive... it fucks with ya. Course, it could be a ghost. But that really begins to fuck with ya. ARGH! So is it bullshit? Could be. But half the fun of STAR WARS at this point is figuring out what's true and what isn't. And like he says - who the fuck would believe him. I don't know if I do - but I know these things are more fun to tear apart and wonder about - and after watching CLONE WARS 2 - I'm too geeky to stop myself... so here ya go...

  Howdy Harry! Out here in Monterey CA... I am a BIG time fan of your website, and up until now..I have never had shit to write about!.....But right now, I feel like I won the the Biggest GEEK lottery in the history of Geek lotteries! NOW I KNOW!!! I KNOW HOW YOU MUST HAVE FELT WHEN YOU SAW "AOC' before everybody else back in 02..!!!!!!!!!! Only I Keep saying " who the fuck is gonna believe my shit??!!! HA!" Then I Stick my big fat ass with a "12" needle to remind me that IT WASN'T A DREAM!!!! Ok soooo where to begin, WHERE TO BEGIN where to FUCKING BEGIN???? (CALMING DOWN, TAKING DEEP DEEP BREATHS HERE!)! HA! ....I feel like one of my nephews whos been eating snickers bars round the clock...!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok...to begin with my GF works an ex cap for one of the biggest movie theater chains in northern CA they have theaters in Sacramento, SF, San Jose. and of course, right here in Monterey....Well..as it turns out, one of the big boys at ILM frequents one of the theaters in SF with his fam...hes a really cool guy, I have met him once or twice (Hmmm does he maybe have a thing for my girl? HA!)...Anyway...My Gf comes home from wk on sat and shes giddier than when combine, Pizza, sex, and the Lord of the Rings triology!!!....I say Sooo "whats up babe?" She says...(trying to hold herself togeather!!!) "Would you like to go out to ILM with me on Monday, and see the finished version of Episode 3? (Nawwww...think I'd rather stay home and suck the creme out of Twinkies with a straw, Homer Simpson style! ) OF COURSE I SAY FUCKING RESOUNDINGLY 'HELL FUCKING YES!!!!!....OK OK OK OK OK (TAKING DEEP BREATHS, TAKING DEEP BREATHS...LOSING CONCENTRATION FROM COMBO OF TO MUCH SUGAR, NO SLEEP, AND AN MULTIPLE ORGASMS FROM SEEING "THE MOVIE EVENT" OF THE YEAR!...OK OK OK...WHEW I am calm! ...ok..sooooooo going into ILM is like well...GETTING INTO FORT KNOX, OR THE FUCKING WHITE HOUSE....Everyone has heard that story from the 80's about how Ronald Reagan asked to see "Skywalker Ranch" and was turned down!!!! HA! ..Anyway....So the security in this place is tighter than a virgin's pussy on prom nite!!!! no fucking joke (and yes I know..."Statement of the obvious!!")  

Ok..ok sooooo we meet the guy at the gate...we get Passes..( I am READY TO FUCKING EXPLODE AT THIS POINT! ) I feel like the UFOLOGIST "Stan Friedman" (Thats is that fuckers name right? HA!) if he was givin' a big fuckin' free pass to Area 51!!!!....I could go on, and fucking on, about how this place is a world onto itself...but that would take a whole other letter to write about!  

The "Screening room" we entered was really cool...like a mini "stadium theater" ..COMPLETE WITH DRINKS HOLDERS!!!, TRAY HOLDERS FOR FOOD, AND AN EXTENSIVE CAFETIRIRA RIGHT NEXT DOOR!! (Ok I know thats a minor fucking point!..but HEY its the "Little things" right?)....Well I am sitting there..and clasping my Girl friends hand so tight...that the sucker was really really really gonna fall off!..AND THEN...AND THEN...IN THE SCREEN IN FRONT OF ME IT HAPPENED!!  

IT HAPPENED (AND NO ONE IS FUCKING GONNA BELIEVE ME! HA! OH WELL...."FUCKEM'! HA!)...I was watching...the opeing crawl for .................EPISODE 3: REVENGE OF THE SITH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

Soooooooooooooo after I caught my breath.....and that took A LONG FUCKIN TIME! ..On the screen in front of me..was maybe the GREATEST SPACE BATTLE, NOOOOOO FUCK THAT!, ONE OF "THE GREATEST BATTLES" EVER ON FILM!!!!...This thing will suck the air out of your lungs!     ITS FUCKING FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!! ANYWAY, I'm not gonna be a dick and give away..all the goodies this will summarize, but NOT SPOIL  2 MAJOR RELEVELATIONS THAT LUCAS HAS KEPT VERY VERY VERY DEEPLY UNDER RAPS WE  ARE TALKIN' "LUKE I AM YOUR FATHER" KIND OF REVELATIONS ABOUT 2/3 OF THE WAY THROUGH AND....AND AT THE VERY END! THESE REVELATIONS INVOLVE A CHARACTER WHO I THINK HAS BEEN THE BEST THING ABOUT THE PREQUELS...And he explains EVERYTHING!! AND I DO MEAN "EVERYTHING" FROM WHY ANAKIN WILL "NOT" BE THE "CHOSEN ONE", TO SIDIOUS'S EVENTUAL DEMISE YEARS LATER, TO HOW LUKE BEFRIENDS HAN SOLO, CHEWBACCA, WHY THE DROIDS MEMORIES MUST BE ERASED..YOU FUCKING NAME IT!!!!!!!!!!...Anyway (WHEW I am WORN OUT MANNNNNNNNNN!!!).. during the battle to rescue Palpatine. Obi-Wan's Ship is badly damaged..thats when these little "nano-droid" type things come out and start repairing his ship( I had an accident last week..where the fuck were these things then? HA)....So...Anakin is able to locate the Fed Cruiser where Palpatine is being held captive...and Obi-wan tells him to go on ahead...THE SCENE WHERE ANAKIN PUNCHS A HOLE THROUGH THE FED CRUISER...AND LANDS LIKE NO BIG DEAL GAVE ME WOOD LIKE YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE!....Ok sooooo after he jumps out of the cockpit...he encounters what seems like 100s and 100s of battle droids, and super battle droids, drokiekas YOU FUCKING NAME IT!...And if you thought that Jedi battle in the arena at the end of ATOC was impressive..wait till you fucking see this! ..OH MY GODDDDDDDDDD!....They truly make Anakin "Super-human" in this one..the way he hacks through those droids..it makes any other Jedi-battle with droids, or non Jedi..look silly in comparison!!!!!!!...so when he finally gets to the bridge to face "Dooku", before the battle begins...Dooku.. atempts to tell Anakin something.....that will be VERY IMPORTANT LATER ON!!!...But before he can fucking say a thing...Anakin whips out his light sabre in a fit of rage and comes full steam at Dooku...mean while Palpatine is sitting there...strangely calm, and strangely reminscent of "Return of the Jedi" when he tried to convert Luke to the Darkside....he even eggs Anakin on by telling him to "Strike Dooku down..quiclky"..and that he should he give himself over to "His feelings"...Well..Long story short...Obi-Wan makes a late entrance, and Gets into the light Sabre duel against Dooku...Now this sequence looks ALOT better than the last time these 3 fought in ATOC....I mean, it really really looks like Chistopher Lee, and not some cut and paste CGI deal..don't get me wrong..I loved ATOC .but this entire light sabre duel (The 1st of many MANY MANY Light sabre fight is incredable!)...Obi-wan gets a "force wave" from Dooku and gets knocked out....the whole time Palpatine has a truely EVIL look on his face...Esp when he utters "STRIKE HIM DOWN!!!"  GODDDDDDDDDDDD THAT was GREAT!  

I'm gonna finish this up a little quicker..and get to SOME MAJOR HIGHLIGHTS!!! Because my ass at wk..and I wanted to beat ANYONE ELSE to the punch with this MAJOR SCOOP!

The General Grievous vs Obi-wan fight Uppppppppppppps the Ante through the roof as far as light sabre duels........this one bad bad bad Mother-fucker! Obi-Wan takes him down...and with his dying last few wds..he tells Obi-Wan that Palaptine is behind the whole thing....Obi-Wan gets wd to the Jedi-Council and Mace Windu and 3 other Jedi are dispatched to bring him in....BAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!! Ok the 1st 2 light sabre duels are like big time warm ups for this fight between Mace and Palpatine....(This film is DEF a PG-13 FILM NO QUESTION!!!) The look on Palatine's face when morphs into Sidious as attacks the Jedi will gloriously haunt my nightmare for YEARS TO COME ! I mean...its some SCARY ASS SHIT He KILLS THE OTHER 3 JEDI.....(umm That is, Decapates 2 and badly mutilates another!! GREAT!...but theres really no blood....its just the way he kills them..SHOCKING! His speed and dexiterity with a light sabre HAS to be CGI-Enhanced, but who gives a shit! When Palaptine tells Mace that the Jedi's days are OVER..it sent chills up my SPINE!...Anakin crashes in and Sidious morphs IMED back to Palpatine, and gives Anakin the big Sob Story about how he's been wronged by Windu and the Jedi Council...and..ANAKIN BUYS IT TO OUR DELIGHT!....The Mace Windu Death sequence? AMAZING!!!!! thats all I will say about that!  

WHEW! Ok my mind, and body are still trying to comprehend all this!!! LOL..Soooo after Palaptine and Anakin off Mace....Palpatine tells Anakin about The Jedi are weak, and corrupted from within and how "EVERY Jedi is an enemy of the Republic!!!" He sends him on an eron to Kill EVERYONE! (and this is some dark dark stufff..and THEY ACTUALLY SHOW IT!!!!)  THEY SHOW ANAKIN OFFING EVERYONE, WITH THE AIDE OF SOME "CLONE TROOPERS" From then on, we see different Jedi being diposed of in a multitude of different ways!! Heads will roll, arms will be severed, legs will be lopped off! INCREDABLE!!!!

Palaptine eventually dispatches Anakin to tie up ALL lose ends with the "Trade Federation" including The Viceroy and his cronies,  Cutting to the chase!!! HA!!! When Yoda, and Obi-wan return to the temple and see it wiped out..THIS IS WHEN THE CHRACTER I WAS TELLING YOU ABOUT MAKES HIS APPEARANCE...AND TELLS ABOUT HOW" SHIFTS IN THE FORCE..ARE NECESSARY, IF NOT UNPLEASANT...AND HE BEGINS TO TELL YODA AND OBI-WAN EVERYTHING THAT IS TO COME..INCLUDING ...THE BIRTH OF"DARTH VADER"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know we all know this..but the way the this chracter tells it...well its just plain fucking SHAKESPEARE!!!!!!  

Ok up to this point, we've only had 3 light sabre duels...but the PALPATINE VS YODA FIGHT...WELL ITS GONNA GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS THE KING OF MANO Y MANO!!! When Yoda confronts Sidious in his office.....the fight spills out into an empty Senate chamber, and its here that we really realize that there is NO Jedi alive ot dead that is a match for Sidious!!!! Yoda, puts up one helluva fucking fight...dodging flying senate pods, and holding his own with a light sabre...but with all those fucking Dark side force powers at Sidious's disposal...its NO FUCKING CONTEST! HA!! GAWWWWWWWWD I shot my load after this fight!!!  

WHEW my ass is tired..I will conlude by saying that the Battle on the Wookie Homeword of Kasshack..could give Peter Jackson and his Weta team a run for their money!!!! The Anakin, Obi-Duel...is a little longer and sometimes not nearly as exciting as some of the earlier duels..BUT DON'T GET ME WRONG..IT RULES!!...The last few shots of Anakin and his badly burned and broken body are EVERY reason NOT to take someone under 10 to see this film!!! I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE EVERTHING THAT HAS HAPPENED OVER THE LAST 24 HOURS..I WOULD KEEP WRITING BUT MY ARM IS ABOUT TO FALL OFF!!!    

LASTLY!!! I WILL ULTIMATELY SAY THAT LUCAS WILL, WILL (AND I DO MEAN "WILL" REDEEM HIMSELF WITH THIS MASTERPIECE...EVEN NATALIE PORTMAN RISES TO THE OCCASION IN HER FINAL REALLY HEARTBREAKING SCENES!!!) BUT PALPATINE V MACE WINDU STILL RULES!!!!! I WILL NOW PASS OUT!  

WHEW! If you use this Harry....you can call me  "The Well dressed man!"  

Over and out from Monterey!!!

Do I doubt that Episode III will be anything short of amazing and brilliant? No, of course not. Episode III will knock our coal mining asses on the ground. But has this guy really seen it? I dunno. Harry only got one review, one email? Sounds fishy...

    by Clio

    The guy who posted the review is one of two things: a geek with no life who made up every single thing he wrote about; or, he's a plant who has monitored AICN enough to know that if you write gibberish with plenty of profanity and scatological references, well, somebody must think you're genuine. I just lost three minutes of my life reading that crap. Harry, I hold you responsible for those three minutes.

    Sounds plausible, and I admit I'd probably be as excited as this dude if I got to see Episode III 2 months ahead of time, but this guy needs to settle down. It's fairly accurate though, I know a couple dudes who worked on the Episode III video game who explained a bit. Good stuff no doubt.

    by Commando Cody

    NO QUESTION this will be PG-13 once you see the new leaked photos online. Lucas really went balls out on the make-up, you gotta hand it to him. And the one action spoiler pic that shows "something" that happens in the Mace/Palpatine fight totally kicks ass. You can check out these photos for yourself at other sites, they're all mirroring the new pics now (which come from a German edition book) now...

    IT'S FAKE! Here's the proof!!!!!

    by MaryPoppinsWrath

    Oy vey! This is a fake, done by someone who has obviously seen the trailer and not much else. I can't believe Harry fell for it. Complete and utter bullshit. For shame, Harry. REAL SPOILERS BELOW!!! As of several days ago, the complete graphic novel has leaked, as has the unabridged audio book and scans from the novelization and other assorted books, and this guy is WAY OFF. Where to begin? The little droids crawling over the fighters are not repair droids, they're buzz droids ATTACKING the ship. Anakin doesn't punch a hole in the cruiser to land, he knocks out a shield and goes in through the hangar. Dooku doesn't attempt to tell Anakin anything important. Obi-Wan does NOT make a late entrance. They take Dooku together -- a few seconds of FOOTAGE of this initial moment has been on the web for a while. Dooku eventually takes Obi-Wan out of the fight, which is when Anakin kicks his ass. Grievous doesn't reveal anything about Palpatine to Obi-Wan. It's not Obi-Wan who contacts the Jedi Council about Sidious, it's Anakin. This is a HUGE plot point, as Anakin is tormented by the thought that by doing his duty and giving up the Sith Master, he's also condemned Padme to die (Palpatine has convinced Anakin he has secret knowledge that can stop death), and this is what leads him to betray Mace and turn to the Dark Side. Palpatine doesn't morph into Sidious, back to Palpatine, back to Sidious again. Mace absorbs Sith Lightning and sends back a "feedback" loop, and this causes Palpatine to wither into his horrific appearance. They do NOT actually show Anakin offing everyone. We see him march into the temple, then cut to galactic montage of clone troopers betraying Jedi. This is only PG-13, remember? Later, Obi-Wan and Yoda will find all the dead bodies in the Jedi Temple and view holo-footage of Anakin taking out a few of them. Qui-Gon (the alluded-to "CHARACTER I WAS TELLING YOU ABOUT") doesn't show up at the Jedi Temple. He doesn't show up until the very end of the film, at which point Darth Vader has already been born. The scenes on Kashyyyk come well before Yoda vs. Sids, and the actual battle part is supposed to only be one or two minutes. This guy is having a good laugh right now at all the gullible schmucks who are lapping up his addled ravings like the real deal. Post the facts ASAP, Harry: this guy is full of shit.

  • March 30, 2005, 2:06 a.m. CST

    Holy shit, the new photos KICK FUCKING ASS!!!!

    by Big Dumb Ape

    The shot of Anakin on the table is nothing less than bone-chilling. To think of him laying there like that, knowing Obi Wan did this to him, no wonder Vader's one pissed off mountain of hate. I can't believe Lucas made it so truly God awful gross looking, but then agin in the editing room it'll perhaps only flash by on the screen in quick cuts. But Lucas is playing for all the marbles here and its clear he really went to town on this one. I swear, I haven't been THIS excited for a SW flick since the original back in '77. EVERYTHING about this one just feels right and it feels like Lucas truly wants to go out saying "Fuck you all, especially the haters. I'LL show you how it's done!" This movie is going to kick so much ass that repeat viewings will require a pillow on the seat!

    signs of the end of civilization

    by AntoniusBloc

    I don't know which is the greater warning sign of the end of our modern civilization: the fact that this mediocre film will make tons of money, or that the polls show a majority to be in favor of pulling Terri Schiavo's feeding tube, in effect, executing her. One of the major lessons in Lord of the Rings is the sanctity of all life, an example being the mercy placed on Gollum, who might have even deserved death. Yet when one humbles oneself to the Creator of life, it is revealed that each life has a role in the greater good, a higher purpose that we cannot see but must have faith in.There is no possible justice in killing Terri. The husband claims it was her wish, but whether or not that is true, Tolkien would not even have advocated such 'assisted suicide', for it is not her wishes that one should heed, but the wishes of the First Cause, the Creator who commanded us not to destroy the life he created in his image. The argument that keeping her alive takes resources away that could be better spent is the worst kind of modern materialism that Tolkien despised. An arrogant view that completely dismisses the spiritual and therefore, the moral, and God's word that man cannot live by bread alone. Many, especially Michael Schiavo, have disconnected their own spiritual feeding tubes to put themselves in the state of mind that thinks it is compassionate to pull out Terri's physically nourishing feeding tube. Sadly, as reflected in the polls, many have done the same by either advocating this murder, or remaining silent about it. It seems that turning our back on God coincides with turning our back on the lessons of history. The downfall of all the major civilizations throughout history has been the decline of morality.

I haven't gotten as far into it as some, but I have three scans of the graphic novel, have seen one or two of the scanned pages of the novelisation (both are available at milleniumfalcon), and have spoken at length with a guy who got his copy of the audio-book delivered early, and even I know that most of this guys details are way off.

  • March 30, 2005, 3:16 a.m. CST

    As for AntoniusBloc,

    by raw_bean

    your linking of 'morality' to your own religious beliefs gives rise to your pessimistic views on our civilisation. If, as I am, you were an atheist, you would view the forcing of someone to live their remaining time in paralysis or extreme pain against their wish as the morally reprehensible option. The question is not one of 'losing' morality, but one of having morals based in a different worldview to your own, religious one. Personally, although I respect that others feel differently, I think civilisation is on the right track if it founds it's morals on some degree of steady reason, and not religious tenets. And lastly, and finally, this is far, far from the time and place to bring this up. Star Wars is harmless entertainment. In fact, beyond that, it is and has always been harmless entertainment that contains some encouragement to think spiritually and morally (though not specifically in a Christian sense), and so your dismissal of it is ludicrous.

    by dr_buggerlugs

    Once I read those words, it's pretty obvious this kid hasn't seen the film - read a few spoilers maybe but thats it. Why o'why is Luke meeting Han and Chewie so important in the Jedi scheme of things that they will need to be predicted? Maybe I watched a different film to him, but weren't they just two everyday interplanetary chancers who took a job transposting 2 blokes and 2 droids only to end up as key figures in the big dust-up? That was the whole point of their story; they weren't spiritual, they weren't winsome, they didn't give a fig about the force and the "journey"...only the money. And baby, it's why we loved dem so much.

    What the hell is with people describing how they got a hard on watching special effects in a movie? And talking about security being as tight as a.... What the hell! This is a film website, I don't want to read about dipsticks getting hard-ons. I also do not believe that Episode 3 is as complete as this kid claims. They're working on the digital version up until the week before the film is released. ALSO, is there any word of James Earl Jones doing the dialogue for Vader? Or is he getting the short end of the stick like David Prowse? I DO NOT BELIEVE the movie is ready. Nice to hear people getting excited and all that, but really... if George is as tight about security as is claimed, how and why did they let this punk in to see it? They know people will blab. Lucasfilm can NOT be THAT retarded. And if they are, why the hell have security at all??? I am so pissed off about this. I am glad I only got half way through this horny kid's article before I got sick of his rambling. I'll resume waiting for the movie to show up on the big screen... that's all that matters to me now (aside from my grad film that is due in four weeks).

    And this guy did see the film (and he certainly seems to have enough unknown specifics to be believable), I still have the highest reservations about the likelihood of thie film not totally sucking. That said, I do not doubt this will be the most exciting of the three prequels, or even the best of the three. But every shot in the trailer, and every released image from the film (including all the posters) have all but convinced me that the systemic failures of TPM and AOTC (emotion, direction, and a complete lack of the warmth and familiarity that were the trademarks of the first three films) are still very present in ROTS. I'm still rooting for it, but all signs still point to sh*t.

But he literally explains everything, even so much as Han and Chewbacca? Like that NEEDED explaining? Like Lucas has ever overexplained stuff in the Star Wars movies? And they just let this guy into the studio to watch one of the most eagerly awaited movies of the nameless decade? Right. I think somebody got too excited after watching the Clone Wars last week, geeked out, and decided to share it with all of us. At least he's positive.

We were greeted at Lucas' front gate by security, Boss Nass from Episode One, he spit all over the controls and the gate wouldn't open so he had get George out of the kitchen (he was making eggs and pancakes for his kids) to open the door. George greeted me, gave me a big high FIVE! YO! YO! YO! Then said, 'Hey YO, come on and see the movie...but don't tell anyone.' So we saw it. Georgie even brought us a bucket of popcorn to eat while we were watching. And I'm going to spoil that BIG REVEAL... Are you ready....? Here goes....

    Zowie. I fell for the fat boy's rave of the last SW film, and I have never been so disappointed in my life. I actually went to one of the first screenings on opening day in NYC -- and you could have heard a pin drop all through the movie. Not from awe. Not from wonder. From boredom and stupefaction at the bewildering incompetence of the writing and directing. Can you imagine seeing a Star Wars film on opening day and witnessing an audience not reacting AT ALL? Clearly allowing a geek to be one of the first to see these new SW movies is a guarantee of a frothing-at-the-mouth rave -- and ample reason for the rest of us to turn our skepticism rays up to 11. Imagine -- Skywalker Ranch has a cafeteria RIGHT NEXT to the screening room! Have you ever seen anything so wonderful??? Geez -- It's the big one! I'm comin' to join ya, Elizabeth, honey...

    by Mafu

    Thanks for the review, Monterey Geek. I appreciate your unbridled enthusiasm, but I think should've waited at least ten hours before writing your review. You don't need to inject fourteen exclamation points at the end of each sentence to make us understand how excited you are for the film. As such, your credibility is seriously in question. I know this is the first review you've submitted to AICN, and it wasn't even close to the worst, so I'm glad you fired up and wrote it. That said, I'd encourage you to relax and write cohesive sentences with less over-the-top enthusiasm next time. I'm glad you liked the film, though.

    AICN has yet again gone lower in my estimation. It seems all Harry can do these days is post bullshit and claim it's a scoop, because AICN doesn't get any real scoops any more. Anyone with a brain knows this is fake, and I mean fake as in could have read some 'spoiler' info and posted what they could remember. I don't think anyone who actually saw the movie could get things so stupidly wrong as they are in this 'review'. And yes, that phrase about Han and Chewie alone makes it steaming Wookiee shit. I guess Harry hasn't been keeping up with ROTS spoilers (probably wants to enjoy the film...) or else he surely wouldn't have posted this.....would he?

    I would not be so quick to lock in the books or the graphic novels as being definitive, as two things are true: One- Movies are often worked on right to the last minute, meaning changes get put into play after graphic novel artwork is finished and books are published; and Two- Lucas is a notorious tinkerer. So, this review is plausible, if not certain.

    by MaulRat

    not only does he bring up things that don't happen, but he skips over the things that DO happen.. like the mother of all lightsaber fights does he mention it ANYWHERE?.. that alone makes me think its a fanboy sportin' a wood for the film without having actually seen it... sure there are other reasons for it but I don't have to, you're a smart bunch you'll figure it out.

    by BarrelRider

    ..it's the only way to go, I tells ya. I didn't read this guy's "review", but I think it's a fair bet the movie isn't finished enough to show in a ny logical form yet. Don't forget, by the March before the release of AOTC, he hadn't even filmed the droid factory sequence.

    Yeah, yeah. That's what I get for trusting Google. I MEANT to do that...yeah, right, that's the ticket. The third "y" is uh...silent or something. Lucas changed it. There, isn't that more believable?

    by atomheartbrother

    sorry charlie- but movies just don't clock in at 4 hours (and the true version of LOTR is the expanded edition- no question)- per picture. it's fine on DVD or if you are planning on pissing away an entire day (to watch 3 movies), but compared to the perfect economy of your average SW film (2 hours nice and easy), LOTR has a real uphill battle. and i say that as a tolkien fan too. and there is no fucking way Skywalker Ranch would let this chucklehead near anything Star Wars related- let alone let him past the front gate. Come on now!

    Talk about the wrong place to post a fake review. I mean, among non-film buffs that story would pass ... however I'd wager 90% of the people in this forum saw the movie, or read the script, or even wrote the script! Either way ... if you're going to make up a movie review about an anticipated movie, don't do it here.

    by staros24

    I think Episode III will suck balls. Who gives a shit at this point? The scripts for Episode I and II were awful. Is there anyone out there who really believes that either one was as good as Empire Strikes Back? George Lucas is too hung up on special effects, like an adolescent boy who has just discovered masturbation. Hooray for him. Until someone tells him that he's making pure shit, he's going to keep making flashy turds and a lot of money from fan boys. I have only one thing to say to Lucas...."You broke my heart, you broke my heart!"

    by Krigan

    The trade paperback of this film was shipped to my store yesterday but we are not supposed to put it out yet. Most stores will put it out anyway though. Expect lots of fake reviews using this information. It will be very hard to tell whats fake and what is not.

    scripts vs. film

    by Doctor A

    Even if this review is from the trade paperback or script instead of the film it sounds cool. The problem with Eps 1 and 2 were never the scripts, per se. It was the direction and in some cases the acting. This may be a kick ass story, but if GL doesn't get more patient and help his actors tell the fabulous story it will suck.

    Just like Harry's claim that he saw Attack of the Clones in a hotel room. Fake reviews are what AICN is all about. By the way, Bored of the Rings became passe last summer. It's a lame fad like bullet time and disco. Deal with it, dungeonmasters!

    That review is as real as the claim that LOTR owns SW! Fact!

    by Lone Fox

    Not that it's written in stone, but I attended both press preview screenings of AOTC in London last time around, and it was on the 8th and 9th of April. I'm guessing they do these approx the same time ahead of release. In the few weeks leading up to the official release there were several additions to the film (couple of new shots, added SFX, on the digital version anyway). I'm sure unfinished versions may get advance screenings, but... Considering they work on these right up to the last minute-- oh wait. Everyone already worked out it was teh fake.
