Thanks Mike! We may go see it this weekend. Right now my vehicle is in the shop, so have to play it by ear. But that's what our plans are. I'll let you know what I think too when and if I see it.

Rindy, you are going to back to Kingdom of Heaven? wow! You must really like that movie.

I just came back from watching "Star Wars, EpisodeIII"....and it was GOOD!!!
I went there with a bit of mixed emotions because I loved EpisodeI but didn't like Episode II too much.
Most of all I was interested to learn about Anakin's fall and the reasons for him to turn to the dark side. And how the connection to "Star Wars, A New Hope" was realised. I wasn't disappointed at that at all. To my mind it was done very well.
Of course there were brilliant special effects...and it was worth seeing it!!!!

Last night, I rented "Phantom of the Opera" from the video store. I had seen it in the theater and loved it. My mom, on the other hand, liked the play better. Emmy Rossum was brilliant as Christine Daae. You can tell she's a classically-trained singer.

I remember reading when it came out that Andrew Lloyd Webber originally wanted to do the film adaptation ten years ago with Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman.

Right now, I'm watching my DVD of "Ben-Hur". The chariot race is awesome to watch on DVD. Too bad I don't like the star's views on gun control.

Saw Revenge of the Sith this past weekend. Really enjoyed it. starwars.gif

If anyone has the original movie (Episode 4, A New Hope), try this: after seeing Revenge at the theatre, go home and pop in the episode 4 copy you have and watch it. We did sunday and you will not view Episode 4 in the same way again. Meaning, we now know the backstory to most every thing happening in Ep. 4. It was fun, try it!

I saw Star Wars III on my 21st last week and went in with mixed emotions and came out with mixed emotions. I love Star Wars, but sometimes there are things I want to know that film seems to have missed out.
And boy did I HATE Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones. I went to see that on my 18th birthday and was extremely disappointed.

However, Star Wars III is better. I wanted to know more about Princess Leia, her planet and how the rebellion gets started, so felt it was a bit incomplete.

I loved the scene with the Emperor and Yoda because they're my my two favourite characters. Ian McDiarmid (Palpatine/Darth Sidious) and Frank Oz (voice of Yoda) were excellent choices.

I hated General Grievous and any scenes on Tatooine or any sort of baron red planet.

I am going to go and see Star Wars III again with my little brother.

My older children went to see it. My second daughter came home with red eyes and nose. The smaller ones are just as excited and want to go watch it but it was vetoed by their father as being too intense for them. They'll get to watch it though when DVD comes out (with some censor.) My oldest went to the premiere in London (waited for 8 hours in the cold rain!)

Just think this series started almost 30 years ago. I remember watching the first one in Japan (not at a theater but VHS at a neighbor's house!) I respect Lucas for sticking to his vision.

By the way, have you heard the full scale Millenium Falcon for the film was built in West Wales? It was to be kept secret but the words got out and people started gossiping UFO was being built!

To Siarls: Penblwydd hapus! smile.gif (I'm sorry it's a little belated.)

Siarls, my cousin is a HUGE fan of Stars Wars and has mentioned to me that in the series of books that they have out they have a lot of information that the movies don't have. She told me that they have books that are before the first movie and even books that are between and after each movie. If you need to know anything just let me know and I can ask her for you since she has most the books!!!! happy.gif

I was 19 in 1977!
I tell my boys that I still recall all the hype and excitement of the first star wars movie. What a time is was!

I just went to Kicking and Screaming last night. It stars Will Farrel as a guy who gets too into coaching his son's soccer team. It reminded me so much of my high school sports career. There is one scene where he is ranting and raving at the kids and everyone else in the theater was laughing, but i was in a sort of shock- it was really my basketball and volleyball coaches up there. If it hadn't been so comic, it would have been sad.

Thanks, Gwenynen! It's strange that people that have only known me a couple of weeks are sending me birthday greetings, when some people who have known me my entire life have forgotten.

I did not know that the Millennium Falcon was made in West Wales. Do you know where exactly?

To Moon Child: I may have a few questions about Star Wars, but I was so looking forward to watching the answers on a cinema screen!

By the way, I'm going to see Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith again next week with my little brother. On Tuesday, I bought the whole trilogy on DVD for only 20 (staff discount and special offer with your cinema ticket stub). I was delighted to see some improvements, such as Hayden (Welsh name by the way;), should be spelt Haydn) Christiansen appearing at the end of Episode VI as Anakin and Ian McDiarmid as the Emperor in Episode V.
