Before it came to theaters, Revenge of the Sith was said to be the "darkest" of the three prequels; it would be for the prequels what The Empire Strikes Back was for the originals. Steven Speilberg was quoted as saying he cried during it:
There was this glowing review (page down) by Kevin Smith:
He pretty much summed up the feeling I had about it.
The trailer, as with the previous two prequels, made me cry. Has there ever been, in the history of cinema, a movie that has such incredible trailers?
Still, I love the original three, and I'll eventually learn to love this one, as I have the other two (The Phantom Menace, specifically, is a better film as a result of III. Attack of the Clones is pretty tough to watch; it's so pointless and stupid, for the most part). I will be buying the DVD.
The DVD, as with the other two prequels', is loaded with extras:
Sweet! I'm excited! Shouldn't be...but I am!
A couple of days ago, Ain't It Cool News showed several pics of some of the more interesting deleted scenes:
My favorite are of Dagobah, and a defeated Yoda
making his escape to the isolated planet where twenty years later, the very last of the Jedi Knights, Luke Skywalker, would seek him out.
It would've been nice to have seen that sequence in the actual movie!
My final verdict on the whole prequel fiasco is that Lucas should have made just one. He could've taken the very best from each prequel, and made a truly great, 3 hour plus, classic. People went to see the 3 hour plus The Return of the King, so I'm sure they'd do the same for a Star Wars movie. Nonetheless, I can't wait for November 1, and the opportunity to once again throw money at Lucas & Co., which in no way needs it as much as I do.
