I really enjoyed this movie. The battle droids made me laugh to the point my ribs started to hurt. "Open fire in sector 4173421!" "Fire in...sector 4...1...7..." "Just shoot right there!!"

Yea, that's the kind of stuff that I DON'T like, but this was geared towards kids, so i can't complain too much. But if they do that in the live action series, I'm gonna be pissed.

That particular bit with the numbers might have been overdoing it a tad actually, but in general I've always enjoyed the slightly wacky nature of the battle droids- Star Wars has never been hardcore 100% angst death doom material, and that kind of slight oddball streak is part of the whole deal.

Who programmed that into them?

Anyway, 3PO had that too.

Yeah... Droid's accidentally falling off cliffs and stuff is... strange.

And did anyone catch the bit where one of them yelled "Oh gooodd" before it died?

Never actually heard the word god in Star Wars before.

A droid???

Well, first review in Holland is out: tehy are not amused. They found te storyline messy (as usual, they added, comparing it to the PT) and the action boring after a while. Nice for 9-years olds they said, and perhap hardcore SW fans.

I especially loved this line: "Clone Wars is about Obi-Wan Kenobi and the ever grumpy Anakin Skywalker who try to make a deal with jabba the Hutt..."

The ever grumpy Anakin.... my feelings exactly! laughing out loud

Then again, it's not quite an unavoidable characteristic.

Wonder if Sidious will use his saber in the cartoon or whether he only does it in the movie. I hope Quinlan Vos is in it

If anyone is comparing this movie to the PT, that's just sad.... sad

This movie was never meant to be a movie, and really shouldn't be considered the 7th Star Wars installment or compared to the PT or OT and garbage like that. It furthermore was just an intro to something larger, a preview to a series, rather than a movie.

That's what I hate the most about film critics these days. They haven't the slightest clue as to what they are talking about.

The only thing I can really suggest is to see it yourself. There's nothing like drawing your own conclusions. But I can guarantee you, if someone walks into the theater ready to compare this movie against the others, than they're in for a dissapointment. But if you look at it as a stand alone preview to an upcoming series, there's room for appreciation.

****ing loved this tbh. After reading several scathing reviews I was so ready to completly hate it. But was instead very pleasantly surprised. Hardly worth the entry fee but I can't wait for the series... This should play great on the small screen.

The film confirms a few important things:

1. George Lucas has the writing chops of a five year old. The dialogue is truly godawful - but what do you expect from a) a Star Wars film, and b) a kids flick.

2. Star Wars can survive without John Williams.

3. Lucas is giving the franchise a lot more freedom and perhaps opening it up to other film makers. Meaning my live action KOTOR film can't be too far away!

Only one complaint besides the writing: Jabba's flamboyant transexual uncle. What. The. ****.

On the other hand, critics just view it as it's presented to them. They don't need to be total inside SW junkies to say how they feel about it. Maybe that does make them more objective. On the other hand, they see so much, they get quite sour.

GL didn't actually write the dialogue this time, btw.
