View Full Version : Poop Revenge of the Sith was a shit film

I've been a long-time hater of the Star Wars prequels and I always manage to convince myself that Revenge of the Sith at least had some decent story elements that redeemed it at least partially for the clunky, mind-numbingly awful dialogue, Hayden Christensen's general incompetence as an actor, and Attack of the Clones' appallingly bad everything.

But I was wrong... Everything about this film is wrong... And I can't help but think that if the guys who directed and produced Empire and Return of the Jedi were still in house telling Lucas he was a fucking dumbass for wanting to do 90% of what's in these movies, we'dve been much more satisfied as an audience.

But yes, hope everyone is enjoying their night. I just felt the need to remind people about what a colossal disappointment this film was, and what a crap film-maker George Lucas truly is.

Thank you and good evening :D

It has a lot of terribly goofy shit.

I like the beginning and ending of the film. Just about everything in between makes me want to hurl. The scene where Palpatine turns on the Jedi and eventually offs Mace, that whole sequence...probably one of my least favorite scenes ever in the entire Trilogy. Horribly scripted, directed and acted. Just about completely ruins the entire film for me. I can look past that fucking lizard, I can't look past Ian McDiarmid hamming it up like a dumbass.

The Phantom Menace killed the franchise, Attack of the Clones pissed all over the dead body, and Revenge of the Sith was a Lucas's half-ass attempt at CPR.

Oh boy is it... It starts off fairly good; the moment where Palpatine goes 'Are you threatening me, Master Jedi?' is probably the most well-acted and tension filled moment in the entire prequel trilogy... And then it gets fricking ruined by a spiral, three Jedi ALLOWING themselves to be cut down, all so Mace can fight Sidious himself.... And die poorly.

And would it have killed him to mix in a friggen location shot once in a while... bollocks... utter bollocks.

I agree. The prequels have not aged well, which increases the suckitude factor since they were not that good to begin with.

It's the overdone CGI; CGI ages worse than strawberries, it's embarrassing. The originals hold up in part because the model work is so amazing that everything looks real. In large part, because it is. Similarly, CGI looks fake because it is. A bit of an oversimplification, but whatever lol

In my opinion, the originals hold up because of the story. The three-part story arc concept was amazing. A big problem with the prequels was the shitty story. Also, the inclusion of characters such as Jango Fett, along with the fact that friggin Darth Vader built C-3PO completely shrank the universe.

I can't recall if it was written before the movie, but it goes into WAAAY more depth and explanations for how and why he really turned. gives background on why mace was who he was, etc. I highly recommend it.

The story makes absolutely no sense. I don't know if you've seen the RedLetterMedia review on youtube, but it's so entirely perfect in its summary of everything wrong with the prequels.

I rewatched all three prequels about a month ago and they are indeed worse than I remember. Especially the second one. It's comically bad. No drama, you want to care about the characters but you really just don't give a fack. You're just plodding along out of some strange duty to your past and the way you remember the first three. Star Wars, Empire and Return of the Jedi were fun and interesting. The prequels were like sitting through a boring lecture.

You nailed it. Right on the head.

I loved the first three movies, especially the two that didn't have the Ewoks. The fourth left me nostalgic for the first three, and the fifth one was so appallingly bad that I never even watched the sixth one. If a fortuneteller had told me in 1980 that I would not even bother to watch a Star Wars movie, I would've killed her with crystal ball shards.

Wow, that's right... the prequals just fail on many levels. It's like Lucas couldn't figure out how to put everything together... hey George, here's an idea, hire a good writer and bring in some outside help for the story line. It's not like you can't pay top dollar for the best writers to help you out or anything...

TV-series Picard would try to negotiate with Vader. Movie Picard would just shoot first and ask questions later.

I have seen the movies several times (once when they came out, wanting to rip out my eyeballs after I left) and then again when my kids had them on in the background, but I always manage to forget this most absurd of absurdities.

It's so far beyond retarded.

But nothing passes Attack of the Clones. OMFG.

"So, you're strong in the force?"

"Really? How strong?"

"Well, I dunno, let me take out this little dohickey and measure you....white blood cell count ......yeah, yeah....oh wow, you've got like a Force Rating of like 947. That's like eighteen points higher than Yoda himself. Man, you are the FORCE of the Force guys."

"Is my Force bigger than yours?"

Hangs head. *sniff* "Your Force is so amazing that Natalie Portman will boink you even though you have the personality of a complete turd and are obviously emotionally unstable and on some kind of insane power-trip when she does."

"Cool, my Force rocks!"

Dear God. What happened to "in the rock, the tree, it surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds us."

I rewatched all three prequels about a month ago and they are indeed worse than I remember. Especially the second one. It's comically bad. No drama, you want to care about the characters but you really just don't give a fack. You're just plodding along out of some strange duty to your past and the way you remember the first three. Star Wars, Empire and Return of the Jedi were fun and interesting. The prequels were like sitting through a boring lecture.

I remember the scene when they're in some factory, ducking and jumping around molten lava, and all I could think was "they needed a scene to include in the video game relating ot the movie".

If there was another purpose for that scene -- I think it was in the 2nd movie but I'm not sure -- then I have never known what it was. It was stupid, unrelated to what needed to happen, a time-waster, lacked dramatic tension -- just a complete failure on all levels except adding it to a video game...

Gotta disagree. They didn't go full on kids movies until he brought in the gerbils in Return of the Jedi. Darth Lucas should have stayed with the battle of Endor taking place on the Wookie home planet. Empire was definitely NOT a kids movie.

Gotta disagree. They didn't go full on kids movies until he brought in the gerbils in Return of the Jedi. Darth Lucas should have stayed with the battle of Endor taking place on the Wookie home planet. Empire was definitely NOT a kids movie.

The "prequels" though..... yes.

Wasn't sure who I was picturing as I read that, but it was ONE of the three guys.

The book was awesome. Very well worth the read for any Starwars fan. It's seriously a great book.

Therein lies a very major problem with the Star Wars franchise: the best stuff has come from people besides Lucas. I'm thinking mainly of KOTOR here.

Yes, because kids movies feature boring political dialogue, rape, prison camps, slavery, decapitation, genocide, forced amputation, mass murder from the lead character, the murder of children and un-armed non-combatants, assassination attempts etc

All of those things point to it being a 'kid's movie'.

Star Wars was always an adventure series that appealed to all ages. Now, only a retarded 7-year old on ADD meds could like this pieces of shit.

Here's a hilarious rant of the movie from Maddox's blog site.

Titled "Star Wars Episode III: A Steaming Pile of Sith"

http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=episode3

http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/images/ep3_tot3.gif
I didn't think it was possible to be more unimpressed with Star Wars. Today, I stand corrected. If you were unfortunate enough to hear your stupid co-workers yammering on about Lucas' latest shit burger, you might have heard them saying something like "I didn't like the first two, but this one was good!" When I ask why, these people have trouble responding because it's hard to talk with George Lucas' flaccid penis in their collective mouths. Perhaps the question I should be asking is "why didn't you like the other two movies if you liked this one?" Nothing has changed. You have the same vacant-looking actors running around, aimlessly bumping into things, an army of stupid, sensitive robots, and dialogue clumsy enough to warrant putting a handicap sticker on George Lucas' car.

To Lucas' credit, he was tacitly shamed into not giving Jar Jar any talking lines in this movie. With Jar Jar's character no longer speaking to annoy you, Lucas filled the void by giving every robot in the movie stupid toy noises. So instead of doing something cool like having the robots chase after screaming children, they bitch and moan and say things like "ow" when they get their prosthetic limbs chopped off. Even worse are the idiots who scarf down these sub-childish morsels of comedic relief, playing into Lucas' shallow theatrics so easily that you could sell these people hookers in a vagina storm.

Before I go on, I have to address something that all you stupid Star Wars nerds are probably thinking right about now: "But Maddox, it's a movie made for kids, what do you expect?!" Even Lucas stated in an interview with the BBC that:

"The movies are for children but [the fans] don't want to admit that."

Oh really? It just so happens that this "children's movie" has a scene where a guy gets his hands chopped off, a graphic decapitation, the wanton slaughter of children (the highlight of any movie), and the coolest scene in any space action movie starring Ewan McGregor: Anakin getting his legs chopped off as his stumps catch fire while his face melts. By the way, if you haven't seen this movie yet, don't read the previous sentence.

The most damning thing about this epic waste of time is the piecemeal plot thatched together with just enough good will and nostalgia to pacify the average idiot (i.e., you). Besides all the jedis in the movie being morons who are unable to detect conspiracies involving the cooperation of thousands of soldiers, Lucas does his best to make this movie extra insulting to our intelligence:
http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/images/ep3_tot1.gif
Senator Palpatine seduces Anakin to the dark side in about as much time as it takes for you to finish reading this sentence. Nevermind the fact that Anakin knows Palpatine is a Sith lord before accepting his offer, or that Sith lords are known for doing things like, oh.. I don't know, KILLING MILLIONS OF PEOPLE. Anakin is on a mission to save his wife, Padme, from certain death! Or at least likely death. Okay, it was a dream. But it seemed pretty real during the flashback sequence, so Anakin has no reason not to believe this dream will come true, as is the tendency of dreams.

Near the end, Lucas takes a shit on the script and makes his crew translate it into an ending that putters across the finish line. The product is a scene where Anakin tries to literally choke Padme using the force:
http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/images/ep3_tot2.gif
Yes, that's right. The entire reason Anakin switched to the dark side becomes unraveled when he tries to kill Padme, who was the reason he switched to the dark side to begin with. Oops! Of course, Star Wars apologists will try to point out that Anakin was already under the influence of the "dark side" at this point. So that's why the first thing he asks as Darth Vader is whether Padme is safe, right you morons?

Even after pointing out these serious problems with the plot, Star Wars nerds will still try to get you to admit one thing: "you have to admit that the special effects were good, right?"

NEWS FLASH: Episode III had no special effects.

They're not "special effects" anymore when they're found in EVERY SCENE. Lucas has done the seemingly impossible: he has made something that was once so unique that people called it "special" by name, and turned it into something so ordinary that nobody raises an eyebrow during a scene where a guy is having a sword fight on the back of a giant beast. By the way, I have to admit that the creature design was very creative in this episode; modeled after frilled lizards and ticks, Lucas tapped the well of innovation dry on this one. Congratulations Lucas, we don't care about "special" effects anymore.

Speaking of, that reminds me of the character "General Grievous" a bad guy so sinister, his very name stands for PAIN AND SUFFERING. Nice job assholes. Tired of thinking up awesome names like "Lord Dooku" and "Nute Gunray" for your bad guys? Why not just call all your characters "Evil" and "Bad" next time? All Grievous needed was a monocle, and a large black moustache that he could twirl as he cackled "I'll get you, if it's the last thing I do!" Ditch this bullshit.

Little Unknown Fact: 2,712,560 dipshits camped out in line for this movie only to realize that it sucks like the other 5.

What about the screwed up timeline? Has this been mentioned? When Luke and Leia were born Obi Wan is 40 at most.... When Luke is maybe 20, "Old Ben" is at least 70. And everyone forgot about the Jedi order in 20 years..... Even Solo, who was pretty worldly - not a desert hick like Luke. Just terrible continuity all around.

Reminds me of Adam Savage talking about the ILM guys looking for pointers of how to model Yoda for his big fight scene. Not having a fleet and powerful Yoda to deal with before, they were anxious to see how Lucas envisioned him as a fighter. They get the script from Lucas and it says, simply 'Yoda fights in a manner that is indescribable.'
