I would agree. When they put a PG-13 on it (M15+) on it they meant it. I had a small girl behind me and she wouldn't stop crying. She kept kicking my seat and screaming NO NO. Then her parents would tell her not to look. It was very annoying.

Wow, Episode III was so great! There was a small boy in the cinema who was far from being 12. He was dressed as Obi-Wan, his mother had Padme's make-up, and his father was wearing a Vader costume. :D He looked very disturbed after the movie.

last movie I watched was Star Wars episode III and I didn't like it much, seemed to be taking forever, I got bored and uncomfortable and then the squeamish bits started...yeah, worst of the 3 new movies in my opinion. But everyone else seems to think its the best so maybe I'm just weird.

that was the last movie I saw, too. I didn't really like it. The acting and the script really sucked in my opinion. I liked Episode 1 the most out of the new movies and episode 2 the least.

Really? I'm surprised. Episode I and II seemed way to cheesy for me. Ep III was far better in my opinion. Interesting how people's views can differ so much.

The last movie I really remember seeing (I may have seen something in the last few months at the theatre, but it isn't springing to mind) was "Sideways", and I haven't laughed that hard or long in a LONG while! :lol:

Well if you have seen a movie in the last few months it can't be too great then, if you don't remember :grin:

I felt that Hayden Christenson's acting in episode 3 was waaay better than it was in episode 2.

The dialoge in all the prequals has been really bad in my opinion. George Lucas is terrible at writing dialogue. Examples. "Are you an angel?" "Now THIS is podracing!" "Around the survivors, a perimeter create." "You're breaking my heart Anakin!" Ugh. All cringeworthy.

I liked episode 1 the least because of the stupid child "actor" playing young Anakin, the unnecisarry screentime spent on the annoying antics of Jar-Jar Binks, Mace Windu not doing anything and Darth Maul being an action figure. But that's just my opinion.

No, indeed not. :lol: I think I saw "Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events" around the same time, but I like the books much better. Now, I'm really racking my brain to try and remember what I've seen...certainly I've seen SOMETHING since Christmas 2004! :eek:

Oh yeah...I did see "The Wedding Date" (not good!), "Because of Winn-Dixie" (again, book was a lot better, though I did enjoy the actors), and "Miss Congeniality 2" (which kinda dragged) which was the last movie I saw. So...I stand by what I said..."Sideways" was the last *memorable* movie I've seen! :D

There are a few movies I missed...some of which I definitely want to catch on DVD, others I'm not sure about seeing. Anybody have any movies they missed seeing in the theatres and some they wish they had missed? :popcorn:

I'm sure at times I've thought, "Oh I really wanna go and see that" but haven't gone to it.

I thought the acting in Episode 3 was horrible, I could have done a better job. I almost cheered when that one lady died.

I was in something like first grade when episode 1 came out, and I loved it because I had a huge crush on the kid who played Anakin. Whoa, that was a really long time ago!

Sorry couldn't resist.


Just out of interest, who's acting didn't you like? I'll admit that Natalie Portman (Padme, or "that one lady" as you said :razz: ) wasn't up to her usual standard, but I suspect that was mostly because of the crappy dialogue she was given ("you're breaking my heart" and "hold me") and the fact that her character didn't get to do anything (being pregnant and all). I felt that Ewen Mc Greggor who played Obi-Wan did an awesome job of acting in episode 3. Especially his monologue at the end. And Hayden Christenson (Anakin) was infinetly better than that little kid in my opinion. I guess episode 1 and 3 were targeted at different age groups, so that's why people of different age groups would be so divided over it. I mean, episode 1 had poop jokes and episode 3 had a guy's soul being corrupted.
