I finally broke down and watched this peice of crap. I figured if I got really high, at least I'd enjoy the visuals, but it just made me more intollerant of the horrible dialog. Whoever is writing this shit must have never been a fan. Yoda being the prime example of a great character ruined by bad writing. The only character who manages to keep some integrity is Chris' personal hero, and good freind to all mankind - yes, the astro-mechanical repair droid known as R2D2. There is a real stupid moment, however, where he grows a hand he never had in his future. Lucas lost it years ago. His head is in CGI, and he's forgotten about the human condition.

I think the first two were total crap, but where I still thing the third can't compare to the original three, I really liked it for what it was.
If it were just another sci fi movie, so be it, I probaly wouldn't see it.

Lucas took the Star Wars name and used it toward uninspiring ends.

To me, these are simply not legitimate Star Wars films at all. The last Star Wars movie was made in 1983.

I will not see Episode 3, I turned Episode 2 off after R2 started flying around.
The latest three are simply unwatchable. There's no way around it. The dialogue is astonishingly bad. The direction is horrible. Lucas has pretty much admitted that Episodes I and II were basically backstory and not capable of supporting a whole movie.

But the lowest of all the low moments comes at the end of "Revenge of the Sith." Within about a minute of screen time, we hear the retarded line that Padme died "because she lost her will to live." Then, to turn the dagger, we are treated to Vader clumsily popping out of his restraints and crying "Medoooooozzzaaa!!!"

....no , wait, mean, "NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!"
Total turd storm. The dialog between skywalker and Almadala (sp?) is so clumsy and forced - it would be almost hard to watch (if Natalie Portman wasn't so damn hot!)

Lucas has always had trouble writing "sexual tension"... The only actor who could pull it off was Harrison Ford.

The first two movies were watchable, and groundbreaking. Once the third movie came out with all the ewok muppets - They lost me. The last three movies were shit festivals.

Dumb move number one: kill off Darth Maul and NOT Jar Jar - WTF was George thinking? Darth Maul rocked ass with his double sabre! Better yet, have darth maul kill Jar Jar.

Dumb move number two: Kill off Jango Fett, one the greatest charactors to come out of George's head.

dumb Move number three: Hiring that little brat to play the young Skywalker/vader. that little shit couldn't act his way out of a wet paper bag.

NOTE: Yoda, although a muppet is a great charactor - I don't know why but for some reason he reminds me of Kermit the Frog.

For a good space muppet movie, The Dark Crystal.

Final Thought, on the final installment of star wars: IF the force is so f-n powerful, how come they couldn't "Sense" their collective asses were about to handed to them?

I've been cheering for the dark side since the ewoks came onto the scene.
The reason you think of Kermit when you hear Yoda is the voice was done (originally at least) by Frank Oz, who is also Kermit's voice, and Fozzie, and Grover....
Yoda should have said "Waka waka!"
Ted. I think you should rent Spanglish. It reminds me of you because it's about a wonderful man who likes to cook. Okay... it's sort of a chick flick but it suckered me in. I was impressed.
Kermit the Frog was done by the late great Jim Henson. He was his first and most popular character; Jim's son performs him now.

Yoda is voiced by Frank Oz and was performed by Frank Oz until the CGI replaced him. Frank Oz is also Miss Piggy (to me, probably the closest voice to Yoda), Bert, Cookie Monster, Animal, as well as Fozzie and Grover.
By the way, I have absolutely no problem with the Ewoks. Give me hundred Ewoks over one CGI Yoda any day.

BTW, Wicket the Ewok (the one who meets Leia) was played by Warwick P. Davis, also known as "Willow" and Marvin the Paranoid Android in the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" film.
Kermit was Henson, my whole response was meaningless
