I didn't think it was possible to be more unimpressed with Star Wars. Today, I stand corrected. If you were unfortunate enough to hear your stupid co-workers yammering on about Lucas' latest shit burger, you might have heard them saying something like "I didn't like the first two, but this one was good!" When I ask why, these people have trouble responding because it's hard to talk with George Lucas' flaccid penis in their collective mouths. Perhaps the question I should be asking is "why didn't you like the other two movies if you liked this one?" Nothing has changed. You have the same vacant-looking actors running around, aimlessly bumping into things, an army of stupid, sensitive robots, and dialogue clumsy enough to warrant putting a handicap sticker on George Lucas' car.

To Lucas' credit, he was tacitly shamed into not giving Jar Jar any talking lines in this movie. With Jar Jar's character no longer speaking to annoy you, Lucas filled the void by giving every robot in the movie stupid toy noises. So instead of doing something cool like having the robots chase after screaming children, they bitch and moan and say things like "ow" when they get their prosthetic limbs chopped off. Even worse are the idiots who scarf down these sub-childish morsels of comedic relief, playing into Lucas' shallow theatrics so easily that you could sell these people hookers in a vagina storm.

Before I go on, I have to address something that all you stupid Star Wars nerds are probably thinking right about now: "But Maddox, it's a movie made for kids, what do you expect?!" Even Lucas stated in an interview with the BBC that:

"The movies are for children but [the fans] don't want to admit that."

Oh really? It just so happens that this "children's movie" has a scene where a guy gets his hands chopped off, a graphic decapitation, the wanton slaughter of children (the highlight of any movie), and the coolest scene in any space action movie starring Ewan McGregor: Anakin getting his legs chopped off as his stumps catch fire while his face melts. By the way, if you haven't seen this movie yet, don't read the previous sentence.

The most damning thing about this epic waste of time is the piecemeal plot thatched together with just enough good will and nostalgia to pacify the average idiot (i.e., you). Besides all the jedis in the movie being morons who are unable to detect conspiracies involving the cooperation of thousands of soldiers, Lucas does his best to make this movie extra insulting to our intelligence:

Senator Palpatine seduces Anakin to the dark side in about as much time as it takes for you to finish reading this sentence. Nevermind the fact that Anakin knows Palpatine is a Sith lord before accepting his offer, or that Sith lords are known for doing things like, oh.. I don't know, KILLING MILLIONS OF PEOPLE. Anakin is on a mission to save his wife, Padme, from certain death! Or at least likely death. Okay, it was a dream. But it seemed pretty real during the flashback sequence, so Anakin has no reason not to believe this dream will come true, as is the tendency of dreams.

Near the end, Lucas takes a shit on the script and makes his crew translate it into an ending that putters across the finish line. The product is a scene where Anakin tries to literally choke Padme using the force:

Yes, that's right. The entire reason Anakin switched to the dark side becomes unraveled when he tries to kill Padme, who was the reason he switched to the dark side to begin with. Oops! Of course, Star Wars apologists will try to point out that Anakin was already under the influence of the "dark side" at this point. So that's why the first thing he asks as Darth Vader is whether Padme is safe, right you morons?

Even after pointing out these serious problems with the plot, Star Wars nerds will still try to get you to admit one thing: "you have to admit that the special effects were good, right?"

NEWS FLASH: Episode III had no special effects.

They're not "special effects" anymore when they're found in EVERY SCENE. Lucas has done the seemingly impossible: he has made something that was once so unique that people called it "special" by name, and turned it into something so ordinary that nobody raises an eyebrow during a scene where a guy is having a sword fight on the back of a giant beast. By the way, I have to admit that the creature design was very creative in this episode; modeled after frilled lizards and ticks, Lucas tapped the well of innovation dry on this one. Congratulations Lucas, we don't care about "special" effects anymore.

Speaking of, that reminds me of the character "General Grievous" a bad guy so sinister, his very name stands for PAIN AND SUFFERING. Nice job assholes. Tired of thinking up awesome names like "Lord Dooku" and "Nute Gunray" for your bad guys? Why not just call all your characters "Evil" and "Bad" next time? All Grievous needed was a monocle, and a large black moustache that he could twirl as he cackled "I'll get you, if it's the last thing I do!" Ditch this bullshit.

You left off the last line:

1,646,088 dipshits camped out in line for this movie only to realize that it sucks like the other 5.

Hmm. Wonder if he made up his mind before going in, possibly?

Sometimes his rants are funny, sometimes not. It's amazing that if you buy a domain name and post shitty rants you can magically gain internet credibility - which IRL amounts to absolutely jack shit.

He failed to mention the general douchebaggery of movie General Grievous and, of course, "She has lost the will to live."

how about wookies and clonetroopers who stand still out in the open as the droids attack fire upon them...trench warfare seems a little dumb

how about all of the jedi dying without being able to sense anything thats going on...george lucass son jet fought better and killed more clonetroopers in his cameo than any of the experienced jedi...

yoda escapes so easily...careful timing we will need? i figure anyone searching the place for yoda would have found him

and for anakin and padme to even think that nobody knows about their marriage/fling is absurd. and anakin doesnt know that there are twins in her womb is absurd...

Really? Oh yeah, because the movie showed all 10,000+ Jedi fighting all over the galaxy...

Right, because they can't possibly keep a secret? And coudn't they have made the choice to wait until she gives birth to find out if it's a boy or girl, or both? Nobody has ever done that before!

there were 10,0000+ Jedi? i didnt know that

still they didnt really go out with a bang...like when the 2 female jedi are killed...both are shot from behind without a clue...couldnt they at least go out with a little faint of glory...

and jedi are able to sense presences...why wouldnt he be able to sense the children while he is in their presence...the womb shouldnt obscure this.

and why would obi-wan complain about his cockpit being foggy if he is latter teaching luke the lightsaber essentialy blindfolded?

and am i right in assuming that obi-wan and anakin were trapped in the rayshields because the darkside of palpatine clouded their vision?

maybe this should all be going to into the ive seen it and want to rant thread...

I don't know how many Jedi there were. I just pulled 10k out of my ass. My point is, we don't see every Jedi get wacked. Just a few. Who knows how much of a fight the others put up? The point in the ones we see is to show that they were caught off-guard.

So, Obi-Wan can't see for the moment in his cockpit and reports this to Anakin. He doesn't say "I can't see... how am I supposed to fight?" Also, he's younger in ROTS than he is in ANH. Maybe he himself learned a few more things over the years? Not hard to imagine.

Apparently it does.

Sure, why not? Doesn't he cloud everybody's vision for, like, a whole lotta years?

I don't understand how the logic isn't there. Jedi aren't all-knowing. They never have been. Only the most powerful Jedi like Yoda could sense anything. Ki-Adi sensed something but was well outnumbered. Aayla, Stass Allie, and Plo Koon are not as powerful as them and were not able to react in time. Generally speaking, Jedi can only sense what they are trying to sense. So it makes perfect sense to me that if they're concentrating on something else in the battle, they're not going to be prepared for a sudden attack from behind. It's the Force, not Spidey Sense.

Right, but remember we're not supposed to think that way, because everything we say classifies us as classic star wars nerds who will ignorantly justify anything.

The following is an observation based on Order 66:
-Only Yoda could sense that the clones were about to turn on him and he is the most powerful Jedi.
-Ki-Adi appeared to sense something, but was well outnumbered.
-Aayla, Stass Allie, and Plo Koon are not as powerful as them and were not able to react in time

Keep in mind too no one expected the clones to turn on any of them. They had fought beside these clones for 3 years and had gotten quite used to it. Some of the Jedi even were friends to some of the Clone Commanders. IE: Obi-Wan to Commander Cody. I perfectly understand what foxbatkllr said.
