    The story has been around 27 years but the dialogue hasn't. Just an observation.

    Exactly, it's a movie and I hate when they try to sneak things into them...especially Star Wars...a movie like Primary Colors or Wag the Dog fine. Believe me I have no bias either way, I'm Independent, but come on, you can't deny the intent, it was a direct quote!

    It's the nature of Hollywood...I guess I'm a little disappointed that kind of stuff made it into a movie (story) that has always been a standard of excellence.

    By the way, did I mention I loved the movie?

    The one that I remember (I've seen it once) was when Anakin said "You're either with us, or against us," which is a direct quote from George Bush in reference to nations harboring terrorists and their willingness to turn them over.

    Honestly, I didn't even know there was debate about this, I noticed it myself...I can't help it, I'm a scientist so I pick up on these details.

    Again, I'm not making a huge deal about it, it's just an observation I thought was interesting. So relax out there, I still loved the movie and was wondering if anyone else had picked up on this.

    Hi,

    I saw it and it was ok. It just does not come up to the original three. Someone said Lucas himself said so in an issue of WIRED. The problem is Lucas. He is a techno wizard but a dud director of actors. Plus, the actors he cast are mostly bad in the movie. Really makes you want Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hammel. The Empire is pretty good. The story makes sense must seems made to fit pieces together and not truly organic. It feels as if Lucas has more of the "dark side" than the "light side" of the "Force" when he directs today. The joy, fun, freedom, skin of our teeth youthful quality of the original is not there. The acting plods. The visuals are nice but visuals may make a game but not a story. Lucas just did not have something to say with these 3 films. They feel like watching plot and effects -- backstory. The original films were truly expressive of something he felt and so they seemed "real" and the action lived. These new ones are paint-by-numbers.

    Republicans are the dark side. Need I say Tom DeLay. He looks like the Emperor.

    Well, depending on how old you are, you're never going to have the same feelings about the 3 newer movies as you did when you were a kid watching the originals.

    I thought Hayden Christiansen was alot better in 3 than he was in Clones. E3 was supposed to be a darker, tragic story and I think Lucas succeeded.

    He said, "You're either with me, or you're my enemy." I remember that because when he said "with me..." I thought "you'd better not finish this with 'or against me'," and fortunately he didn't.

    The whole abuse-of-power, manipulation-of-the-public, which-side-is-the-real-attacker stuff can apply to just about any war movie and just about any war. A movie about a war comes out while a war is going on... parallels are unavoidable, IMO.

    I read somewhere (I thought it was the Wired article but I guess not) that Lucas doesn't think he's any good at writing dialog and doesn't like doing it.

    It's odd that it doesn't occur to him to get a little help from a writer to fill those things in.

    I feel kind of the same way about Lucas as I do about M. Night Shyamalan... I really like them both, but they could take their movies to a whole other level if they didn't insist on doing everything themselves.

    But anyway, of this six this one was in the top two or three for me.
