I was rediculously tempted. I did it to Mr Clooney, I did it to Mr Frayling, I did it to Mr Ritchie why oh why couldn't I have done it to himĀ  :-[

well it seems as if you guys have hijacked my topic and took it to a different territory. ;D ;D

thats cool...it wasnt going anywhere anyway. I am just rather shocked there are no star wars fans here. this is puzzling indeed.

I do apologise  :-[ . I'll bring it back on topic now. I havent seen the last two SW prequels as I have never been that motivated to see them. I have enjoyed the original trilogy but am not a big fan of them.

Well Star Wars came out right at the time just before I moved up into the Northwest corner of Montana wedged between Idaho and British Columbia, so I was for a period there living without TV probably from 1970 to 1977, so I kind of missed a lot of the hoopla and most of the "disco" era, lol.

It was a cool period though, roughin' it in old log cabins, spike camps, and bunkhouses of the US Forest Service, spent a lot of time drinkin', smokin', and dancin' the hoochy coo,  chasin' women in the honky tonks and bars of Montana & Idaho. LOL

The Matrix in general was abysmal. ;D ;)

Well, I was 14 and with my friends we were very happy to attend Dune: a David Lynch Science Fiction flick with Sting who was one of our favorite musicians at that time. But after a few scenes we realised it was totally awful. So at first we were disappointed but quickly we turned this into a big laugh and put the mess in the theater: a great moment!
Since that day I choose carefully the science fiction flick I attend at cinema. But I have to confess that I made a second mistake:Stargate!
For me there are a few interesting science fiction flick such as 2001, Encounters of the 3rd type and Blade Runner. I decided not to include Matrix 1 because of number 2 and 3 and all those ridiculous fight scenes.
 The others (Star wars etc) are great technically that's all:annoying.

The Magic Christian. Along with Slaughterhouse-Five, MC was one of the best satirical novels to come from that era. When I saw what they'd done with it on film, my jaw dropped. One of the most incoherent, unfunny films ever. How do you go this wrong, with a cast like this! It got middling reviews, which was way better than it deserved. Only thing good was the theme song.

I dunno why I tried to fool myself into thinking Alien Vs. Predator would be good. I love the Alien and Predator franchises so bad I wanted a great film here. The trailers looked promising for this film and when I seen it I couldn't believe what I was watching. It's one of the worst films ever made, period. You wanna talk abysmal, this film was it! Paul W.S. Anderson has got to be one of the worst directors ever. How he gets funding for his films is beyond me.

Sorry Firecracker, I second almost everything the majority of the fans say. I liked the episode 3 a lot. In fact, I went to see it again, which is very rear from me. The last duel work for me as it's supposed to work.

Yes, dialogue sucks. One of the funniest things ever seen on screen is when Palpatine yells: "Power! Unlimited power!". I totally cracked up at both screenings. It's even funnier than the "Noooooo!!!"

I gotta admit I liked "Revenge of the Sith" myself. There definitely was a lot of silly diologue in this film, but it has it's brilliant moments. I love the last half hour.
