This is going to be a very short post. It is 3[img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]0 in the morning and I just returned from my FIRST viewing of Star Wars Episode 2 : Attack of the clones.
Oh My Gosh...
Mr. Lucas, Kudos to you for making quite possibly the best sci-fi movie I have ever seen.
I am so glad I got to be at the first viewing, 12[img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]1 AM.
This movie rocks. You must see it. If you have seen a Star Wars movie, then you must see this movie!
Reactions certainly have been one way or the other on this one. That's better than Ep 1, which got either hatred or apologies.
Is it OK for a five or six-year-old, do you think?
I stood in line to see the original back in the Cambrian Age. Still remember the excitement--wow! What a thrilling picture!
Is it ok for a kid to see?
Heck Yes. The Amidala/Anakin romance is handled with absolute taste, there is not a single cuss word, hint of secual inuendo, or really anything like that... well...
There is one scene during a early plot point you see a woman in a G-String from behind, also wearing fishnets... it's only on screen for about 3 seconds... and other than that, you deal with the occasional loping of limbs from the body ala light saber.
On 3 hours of sleep I am up and running for the day... pumped. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
Thanks, Ram! You *are* pumped!!
Mostly-exposed butts my boy will just laugh at. As I get older, I'm finding them funnier, too.
I'm kind of concerned about any implied slaughter of children or loss of primary loved ones that might occur. A little violence of any other sort is OK with both of us.
He insists I call him Luke and imitate Darth Vader all the time. Our lightsaber battles are the stuff of legend.
Stevo - I am replying through messenger so as not to spoil anyone.
I saw it today and it wasn't as good as you describe.
Well, it didn't suck, which is all we could really hope for.
Not as good in your opinion.
I liked it, and plan on seeing it a few more times.
I've seen a lot of reviews that all say it's better than Episode 1 but not very high scores, but i'll see it anyway over the weekend. The one comment thats common in all reviews are that the visuals are excellent.
Wow Ram! Your gonna see it a few more times? I'd rather save my money and just buy the DVD, but I assume your still going to buy it too.

I haven't seen it but I heard a review of it on the radio this morning. It wasnt that good. The scene at the end got praise but he said the love story line was awful and the actor was terrible. He didn't trash the movie as a whole but said it wasn't as good as other ones. I have to confess I only saw the first one. It was great...I am old. lol Long live Luke Skywalker and Princess Laia (sp?). Are they still alive?
