 Layered Plot?!?! That I gotta see. But then again, if you saw the
 trailers, then you all know what the friggin plot is about. Obi and Qui go
 and save Queen What's her name with painted white face. Oh yeah, and there
 is something that looks like the Death Star too... Ah oh dear! Two dark
 lords of sith! Dear heavens me! IT's going to take me 25 showings to see
 just how that Darth Bozo the Clown really does the fancy schamncy martial
 arts swing, or how that snot-faced Anakin runs over small desert
 This movie stinks of simple plot holes if you ask me. But then again, it
 didn't take much to understand the plot holes for the original trilogy.
 It's all on the level of how much people are willing to make of it, or
 willing to get out of a simple fairy tales...

 Well, its not everyday that you get really bad ass in Star Wars. All the
 villains save for that Emperor Palpatine is a nilly willy wimp. Even Darth
 Vader turned out to be a wimp in the end...

 Huh? Come on, let's all be honest. Everyone has something against TunrAip
 Mobile Suit, and that's it. For all anyone cares, the other mobile suits
 can look like it CRAWELED OUT OF A friggin TARPIT (and lo and behold, half
 of them will be by the end of the series!). I just think everyone needs to
 buck up, shut the e'll up, forget the Hype (both +ve and -ve), sit down, and
 enjoy the ride. All complaints should be made after the ride.
 All flames to /dev/null/. Um... Wait, I hear tha's a full directory now.
 Y. "Screw Darth Bozo the Clown. I want some real badass in mah movies"
 Choe, who is definitely not waiting in a friggin line for some stupid movie
 tix. >>

Wow flame on. Well either way believe what you want. I am not saying it is
the best movie ever made, but with an attitude like yours don't even bother
going because you already have made up your mind. I am just saying I am sick
of every one slamming things they haven't even seen yet. If you see it and
hate it fine, but if you are just someone who likes to be "cool" by hating
whatever seems popular with everyone else without even seeing it then get a
grip. Nothing personal mind you, I am just trying to say let's just take
everything less seriously and enjoy them.
