Didn't even have to wait in line... and -yes- it sucked real baaaad !
I really don't want to spend any time on this: this film sucked so bad that I came out thinking that I didn't get anything positive out of it.
At least, there were some serious qualities in TPM and AOTC. OK, not that many in AOTC, but... a few: the whole clone subplot, the opening chase seen, the final large scale battle (after the Jedi defeat, which was lame), and... that's it I think. Here, I really had to scratch my head for the positive: the plot where the clones themselves (and not Vader, as announced) kill the Jedi one by one, and... that's it for me. Several people have saluted McDirmid (or whatever his name is) for his acting: come on! It's ATROCIOUS!!! And yes, bad lines don't help.
Why my title on not having to wait in line? OK, small anecdote: I realized a few days before the 18th that I was leaving for Austria for a 5 day trip the day ROTS was being released in Switzerland! Aaaargh, I would have to wait at least 5 days (or more) to see it, since Austria would obviously not show it in English. And guess what? I found out that in fact, some Austrian cinemas WERE showing it in English! The catch? ROTS was being released there only from the 20th on, and I picked the 21st as the day to see it... a Saturday!!! There was no way the cinema wasn't going to be packed, which is a thing I dreaded. Who says I would even get in?
By a turn of event I won't recount here (who's still reading anyway?), I got to the cinema only 5 minutes before show-time... and... No queue!!! There were roughly 15 people in the theater, including -I must say- one VERY underage kid!
(Huh, that didn't keep THAT kid from going at least five times to the loo, soon followed by his incompetent dad, if you don't mind my saying so.)
In closing, I'll say this: since Lucas has gone into so much trouble retouching his SW saga, my hope is: that in the next 3 years, he'll re-release his 3 prequels with a new cast, new special effects, new dialogs, and might I say it: a new director!
