who saw it and what did you think????

I just got home and WOW, over exceeded my expectations, certain aspects were a bit underdone but overall for a movie retro 3D'd it was damn impressive Can't wait for the next 5. Only part upsetting was the there was no midnight release but hopefully for the original trilogy there will be.

So how low were your expectations going into the film?

Well im huge fan and I have seen every episode 100 times or so own them on VHS, DVD and Blu-Ray. So was prepared for things like ships, blaster bolts and Lightsabers to be retro'd but the way they layered the scenes and brought everything to a realistic feel was very impressive. But yea, knowing that it wasnt shot in 3D like avatar or Resident Evil i was prepared for the 3d to be a bit shotty and it was at spots but overall they did a great job representing it as a full retro 3D movie

I guess I had higher expectations but I didn't really notice a lot of the 3D?

If you want to see the one true film made to showcase the technology of 3D, go see Avatar in an IMAX theater. Just about all other films made since then are shoddy conversions or examples.

I saw it, and I must say I loved it. People bag on the Prequels, but it's starwars nonetheless, Darth Maul and and Qui-Gon make the movie, and I really enjoyed it. If I wasn't sitting next to a kid going "Why are there 2 Jabba The Hutts?", "Oooh he's in two parts now?" "so did...so did Skywalker's pod blow up?" "WHOAAHH explosions"

These are actual quotes, though the father did a semi-decent job trying to keep him quiet.

But I still loved it, the restored 3d was quite nice, not many of those "coming at you" moments, but it still gave that great 3d sense.

god Avatar was horrible... they should have just made an all CGI 3D version of Dances with Wolves... would have been more entertaining

Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy other people to shoot at.

Yeah, that's why I had the words "showcase the technology of 3D" in my post, as Avatar has no equals in that department.

So....is the 3D a clear stand out or am I better off watching it on Blu Ray on my new 55inch LED TV I got for X-mas? I would rather buy the Blu Ray version than spend the same price on a movie ticket, drink and popcorn.
