At the theatres: Watched Star Wars, Episode III (Revenge of the Sith) and I must say that I found it better than the last installment (Attack of the Clones). Though I’m not a Star Wars fanatic, I do admire George Lucas for dreaming up such an immense saga (and that too, not in order!). I guess Star Wars fans will probably like this version going by the way the movie is raking in the moolah. This is also the last installment, the one that seals all the episodes, so I guess the reception is expected. I thought the whole Anakin Skywalker being sucked into the dark side and turning into the evil Darth Vader was a little sudden. And to think it was all for a woman’s love. Sigh. They never learn do they?! Anyway, if you’re out of work, it’s a good idea to head to a theatre and watch this one.

This is the way the episodes were released:

Star Wars, Episode IV (1977): A New Hope
Star Wars, Episode V (1980): The Empire Strikes Back
Star Wars, Episode VI (1983): Return of the Jedi
Star Wars, Episode I (1999): The Phantom Menace
Star Wars, Episode II (2002): Attack of the Clones
Star Wars, Episode III (2005): Revenge of the Sith

Which one was your favourite episode?

  1. I haven’t seen any of these movies but wud love to see them. So in which order do you suggest shud these be watched – in the order they were released or sequentially according to the episode numbers?

  2. Hey,

    Count me too as the Starwars fanatic. Though I found the last episode good, it had uncharacteristic portrayal of a Jedi killing younglings. Is the Dark side so bad to kill children? That defeats the whole training Ani underwent with Obi Wan.

    After watching the Revenge of the Sith, watched the older version DVDs and tried to sew together the story. Very impressive and coherently put togeger over a span of three decades. Bravo George.


  3. new look, looks good. I am not Star wars fanatic and believe it or not I didn’t watch a single episode yet. But heard or read first movie was very good and I think it was year 1976.

  4. First of all, I adore your new look! Kit Kit looks so adorable!

    And Star Wars, well, can’t say much because I have only watched one movie out of that whole lot, and that was The Phantom Menace. But Star Wars doesn’t interest me as much, for some strange reason.

  5. Damn whatever order George Lucas has been making the movies, but I am watching them in order! So far have watched 1, 2 and 3 of them and got to say Revenge of the Sith is much much better that Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones! Now I hear that 4, 5 and 6 are way too better than these three, I am dying to see them πŸ™‚

  6. anand: you can watch them in any order since every one of them is a complete film. but if you want, you can get the DVD series and watch it back to back one day πŸ™‚ and then go watch the latest episode on screen!

    nainar: that scene was strange. couldn’t really digest it. especially considering padme was pregnant with baby and stuff. somehow, it didn’t go down too well. but you’re right. must have required quite some effort to put the whole thing together.

    tarun: it’s never to late to start πŸ™‚

    khushee: thanks πŸ™‚ she’s a doll! i can understand. not everyone’s cuppa tea!

    nku: good for you! hope you manage to catch all of them πŸ™‚

  7. I am trying to be out of work, hope I will succeed soon. Then I will definitely watch all these on DVD, curling up in my favourite chair. πŸ™‚

  8. My all time favourite was the the original Star Wars. I was not even born when the first movie was released. But I watched it and the two sequels, almost two decades later, when the digitally re-mastered versions were released. I liked the sequels too. As per the two prequels, “The Phantom Menace” & “Attack of the clones” were disappointing. But a lot of people say that the episode III is better. Will probably watch it in the coming days.

  9. Moral of the Story: Women are responsible for turning Good into Evil.

    I don’t watch Star Wars; but I’m happy they got this one right.

  10. Know wht??
    This is the 3rd post of the day Im reading on Star Wars…still dont feel like watching that movie. I also haven’t seen X-Men, Harry Potter & LOR.
    Hmmm…dont know why?
    I wud prefer watching Matrix trilogy anytime πŸ™‚
    Anyway, think I will give it a try for this one…

  11. i also haven’t seen any of the Star Wars movies. I never thought about it, but Vasu thinks i am weird. And its only recently that i realise i belong to a dwindling minority group of people who have not watched the movies.

    Maybe i will catch them when i get back to India.

    1979 was right,by the way, thats when the first movie,Episode IV was release.
