the saga is complete
(orig. posting - may 19, 2005) JUST SAW THE MOST AWESOME MOVIE BY FAR THIS YEAR: STAR WARS 3 - REVENGE OF THE SITH. nuff said. he he. the most amazing special effects, the most emotionally charged of ALL of the trilogies, and (i may go overboard, but what the hell!) in my opinion, the BEST of them all. i mean, this is THE most anticipated of all movies! the previous two were just the stepping stones if you may, to what the fans and curious ones have been REALLY wanting to see: how sweet anakin became the most feared, powerful (and hated) Jedi of all.
from the very beginning, the movie was really buzzing with electricity, non-stop action and one of the classic lines delivered ("i have a bad feeling about this") early on by beloved obi-wan, played so beautifully and masterfully by my crush, Ewan mcgregorÜ my fave scene was towards the end when padme said "anakin, you're breaking my heart". i mean, that whole scene at the landing area at the lava or whatever hell place that was. when Hayden Christensen really displayed his acting chops. i agree with Lucas's decision to make the Hayden subtly play the transformation in AOTC; it really worked because we get to see the full impact of being influenced by the dark side. the thing that got to me was that it's the biggest irony: anakin sacrificed himself, really, just so padme could live, but in the end, he was the one who ultimately did what he feared the most. i just love the edginess of it all. i now understand that love played a big part in his reverting to the dark side, it was just twisted because he was really just a lonely, confused guy. i mean, take away all the battle scenes/sfx, and you're left with a REALLY GOOD story, guys! Lucas outdid himself on this one, and what a way to go! really loved Hayden in this one. i was impressed, just really singing his praises! as usual, Natalie and Ewan didn't disappoint. i read in one article that Natalie hated that she didn't get to participate in any of the action, but in truth, she saw more "action" in this one than in any of the others. i just loved that she was the vulnerable padme and that her love was greater than anything that she was willing to die for it.(sob!) Ewan as obi-wan in this one also outdid himself. the part where he said "you were my brother. i loved you" was just priceless. you really FEEL it. and for a sci-fi movie, that's big.
the music and the familiar tones incorporated from the previous trilogy was just great! as a fan, this did not disappoint at all. and telling the history of how things came to be for the first saga was just beautiful. it all came to place, finally... tied the two trilogies so beautifully and seamlessly. goosebumps all over! perfect 10. a must-see!!!! over and over and over again! i plan to watch it again! WEE!!!
I was 15 when I saw this movie and it scared the crap out of me! It left such a huge impact on me primarily because, being 15 at that time, I actually thought that it was very well-written. What got me from the beginning was Drew Barrymore. Having been a fan of hers for so long, seeing her in a scary movie (pardon the pun) was quite a pleasant surprise. And for a horror movie with interesting plots, twists, and dialogue, the humor still prevailed, thanks to Matthew Lillard (my fave because of Hackers) and Randy (forgot the actor's name, sorry). Neve Campbell was okay as Sydney, she could've been a little less glum. I mean, given that she had just lost her mom and everything, but still. Besides that, all in all, Scream can boast that it was the one imitated, and that they did a great job of "psychologizing" previous horror flicks that had come and gone. Great job, Mr. Craven!
Center Stage (2000)
a movie for all dance lovers
This movie gives us a psychedelic combination of songs; from Jamiroquai to Michael Jackson, it surprises you and enraptures you, too. For the dancers in all of us, this is a very nice movie to watch, and maybe even dance to! Who could blame you when the upbeat melody of "We Are Dancing" makes you want to just jump and dance, later realizing that the movie's actually over?
Good acting, Good enough direction. Great music. A definite must-see!
