-I know that it's the most built up fight in all 6 movies aside from Luke fighting Vader in Episode VI, but that bit where they are literally just doing flips and tricks with their lightsabers was REALLY stupid and I'm surprised that nobody really talks about that, yet they nitpick the rest of the film.
-I found it to be really boring after they go out to the lava on Mustafar about 3-4 minutes into the fight. It lasts way too long and not that much fighting goes on. It's mostly just Obi-Wan and Darth Vader being exposed to the elements.
Go to 1:40 for the lightsaber swinging nonsense I mentioned.
afaic, spinning around like a yo yo while fighting with lighstabers is pretty over the top
mind explaining the dumb rating? how is that not over the top?
I think we need a moment of silence for these helpless super battle droids:
they were just doing their job and searching the jedis' ships
then out of no where, r2d2 burns them!
rip fellow droids ;(
They should have kept the Soulless Killing Machine voice for the droids in Ep III. The funny-speak just sounds stupid.
It works in the TV series though.
then I don't know what your definition of "over the top" is, bro
The best thing about the the final fight in Episode III was the score.
Anakin vs. Obi-Wan is my favourite piece from the Prequels.
I liked the music in the battle of hoth scene
The scores for Episode 1, 2 and 3 are nowhere near as memorable as the originals. Sure, it had 'Battle of the Heroes' and 'Duel of the Fates'...but that can't beat the "creativeness" of 'Cantina Band', 'The Princess Appears' (sometimes clipped down and named 'Binary Sunset'/'Force Theme'), and the rest. (The Imperial March/Main Theme) etc.
Honestly, I can listen to the sequel soundtracks and get a good picture of what's happening, the emotions, events, tensions, I can't with the prequels...
My favourite piece from any movie ever:
The piece used in the background of the attack on the first Death Star is also great.
From the originals I always find myself listening to The Empire Strikes Back score the most: Battle of Hoth, The Asteroid Field, Yoda's Theme, The Clash of Lightsabers, and The Imperial March.
For me it's Across the Stars (Anakin and Padme's theme), Leia's theme, the end music from Empire Strikes back (the music that plays during the reconstruction of Luke's hand that moves into the credits), and my all time favorite soundtrack piece from any movie: the choral music that plays for two minutes or so during the Battle of Endor.
I think we can all agree that The Empire Strikes Back is the best of all 6.
I liked the song that played during Padme's funeral, especially when it ended with the Binary Sunsets.
duel of the fates is still the best song in all the prequels
I used to have one of those 'Kill Tracker' programs for Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy and I had it set to play Duel of the Fates when ever I did a Private Duel. After Episode 3 came out I set it to "Anakin vs. Obi-Wan"
I don't know how many of you here are music nuts like me, but I always thought that the opening titles for the OT were much better than the PT, they all had their own little differences that kind of reflected on each movie. The PT openings sounded pre-recorded and used over (I'm still convinced the opening title on The Phantom Menace is re-used for Revenge of the Sith).
Also, uh, I'm such a music nut (more specifically Star Wars nut) that I have not only all the soundtracks, I also have bootleg complete scores (pretty damn good quality too) and sheet music (I play trumpet). Yep, I even record myself playing random SW songs.
edit: here's a pretty decently-made medley, i can also play every song in it :|
It's funny, because I played a lot of Jedi Academy I remember specific missions that used some of these tracks better than parts of the movies they were used in.
I agree that the OT has a better soundtrack, but the PT has some nice music, too.
One piece of music I don't think I've heard in any Star Wars video game is the music from the Medal ceremony at the end of Ep4.
Other then that I've heard nearly if not every every piece of Star Wars music in the various games over the years.
I'd kill for a new Jedi Knight/Jedi Academy game. Or an "Episode VII" about Kyle Katarn.
isnt he Leia's adoptive father? he appears at the very end of episode III saying he'll take care of her, if I'm not wrong
that's literally the only thing he ever does
he appears in one or two scenes
