Episode III was AWESOME.

If you are going to press play - "Anakin's Betrayal, Anakin vs. Obi-Wan, Anakin's Dark Deeds" Tracks 4, 9, and 10 on the Revenge of the Sith OST.

Favorite part: Anakin flipping out and absolutely losing his mind.
1. LIAR!
4. You will try...
5. My new empire...

The final duel vs. Obi-Wan gave me goosebumps... Seriously it is the only thing that really affected me in all 3 of the prequels. John Williams (who wrote the score) is a genius.

Least favorite part: Anything with Natalie Portman. She is hot but now I realize that she was a crappy choice for her character. The wooden relationship between her and Hayden Christensen wasn't just bad writing. Because you BUY bad writing if the actors pull it off.

Also I have decided to disregard Episode I, and look at is as nothing more than a warmup for the real story. I can't even watch it anymore, except for 5 minutes of it. Darth Maul was cool, the duel at the end was cool, but everything else pretty much sucked. The vast majority of the movie is a joke of a kid's film.

I'll try spinning! That's a neat trick! *!@#)!#Q$!@#$(*@#)$)@#*$

Jar-Jar, Natalie Portman, anything Jake Lloyd does or says, and stupid CGI droid/gungan battle aside, the prequel trilogy wasn't that bad. I blame the list above, because I can live with poor dialogue as long as it is delivered convincingly. Maybe George Lucas should have had the older Anakin down before casting Padme (She had no charisma with Hayden). Kiera Knightly would have been a better choice I think.

Oh well. It's all over and there is no use crying over spilled milk. But going from Episode I to III is like raping my childhood and giving me a lollipop after.

However, the end of Episode III has just gotten to me (the final duel) - It has become probably my favorite Star Wars moment. Don't get me wrong, I still love the original trilogy... I just identify more with Anakin than Luke.
