and blowing up the mothership
What rocked where the first two or so minutes of episode 1. Up to the point they land on the planet surface.
Episode 2 was pretty good.
I'll watch it if it's on the TV. But the commercials look so LAME!
If at the end of episode three, they:
1) detonate the explosives in the future-vadar's neck (Remember they're there because he was a slave...) and that's how he gets so badly disfigured.p
Wasn't he supposed to be dropped into a vulcano or something?
I'm not sure but I think recall reading that someplace.
2) Send Jar Jar to Alderan as an ambassador (remember it gets blown up in IV).
3) Explain practically how it is C3PO has had his memory entirely wiped so does not know Obi Wan or anyone else in IV...
And Obi Wan has to have his memory erased so he doesn't remember the R2. >_>

You know what sucks about CG special effects?
It's that everybody seems to think they are great.
"Oh, I know, let's not waste our time with props, let's shot them on green bg and then add everything on computer."
And then everything looks like crap, because modern computers still can't recreate the realistic lighting effects in a reasonable time.
In the old SF they were aware they can't make realistic FX so they weren't pushing them in your face all the time.
-One of the reasons I like the ORYGINAL trylogy better than the "GOLD" version.
I'd love to see a new SF movie shot with freakin plastic models instead of goddamn shiny CG!
And without damn CG alien creatures.
