That is...until after the movie had been out of the theaters for a few months, and then all the usual suspects came out, nitpicking and complaining like they always do. It became "cool" and "hip" to trash this film just like its predecessors, and soon things were right back to the way they were before, with people claiming that Ep.III was also a "flop" that no one really liked, pretending that the film's critical and commercial success never happened. And so here we are again, with the perpetually disgruntled fanboys crying about their "raped childhoods", etc.Read more ›
Firstly, Episode III's biggest flaw is that it does not build on the character development of Episode II. Although clumsily handled, parts of Episode II did hint strongly at Anakin's Dark Side, which showed itself on several occasions. You'd think in the years between II and III, this would have become even stronger, but instead the beginning of this movie shows he's still a Good Jedi; cracking cheesy one-liners with Obi-Wan and uttering cringe-worthy expressions of love to Padme. So rather than showing a gradual decline, the transition between Nice Guy and Ultimate Evil has to take place in the space of one movie.
Secondly, this movie is poorly paced. Far too much time is spent going down side-stories and blind alleys that have little to do with the main plot. The subplot involving General Grevious, for example, doesn't really go anywhere and could have been either trimmed or cut altogether (why not just say Dooku kidnapped Palpatine on his own?). And while it's nice to see Chewbacca again, the reality is that there was no need for a story involving the Wookiees.
The combination of these two factors means that Anakin's descent into Darth Vader feels forced, rushed, and very unconvincing.Read more ›
George Lucas had worked under no illusions. If this film failed to deliver, then by many detractors standards it would serve as the final nail in the coffin of the new and 'modern' trilogy. Thankfully then, not only has Lucas succeeded in crafting one of his most accomplished films ever but arguably his most important; `Episode III' is an incredibly self assured triumph. Masterfully bringing the epic saga full circle, completing a story begun in 1977 and thereby seamlessly connecting the original trilogy with the prequels, `Sith' effectively addresses much of what critics found noticeably lacking in the previous two instalments, lending much needed credibility to the 'new' trilogy, displaying a marked improvement in direction and substance, and a commendable maturity in attention to character and story.
Kicking off with an opening space battle that utilises a roller coaster ride POV to spectacular effect, the film twists and turns us in it's stylishly comfortable grip, throwing us headlong into the already ensuring action.Read more ›

My guess is, they like to see their name in print and they want people to take notice of how smart they are.

I call him a beaten man who used to be profoundly revered by his peers for his countless accomplishments. I see the flames engulfing the superficial self, the handsome features being replaced until the monster inside has now become his very face. I call him a feral beast who is barely holding on...
