    I would say TPM is my third least favorite Star Wars movie, but I still enjoy watching it from time to time. Contrary to AOTC and ROTS the special effects aged well, mainly because George Lucas and his team used a lot of practical effects. The score is still the best.

    Happy Anniversary!

    What did I do? I gave a honest opinion about TPM, which was mainly positive...

    My favorite SW movie! I could go on & on about why but no one cares. And I have to be honest: on opening night, the audience didn't like it. As the movie went on, you could feel the temperature in the room drop, the enthusiasm dipping with every passing minute. The audience was quiet when it was over. But I was over the moon! To this day, it's my favorite. But again, I have to be honest, it makes Finnegans Wake look easy to digest. It's either your kind of thing or not. Anyway, has it been 20 years? Go to the movies now & you see its influence, especially Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Aquaman, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. I'll always love this movie!

    Thanks for the reminder. :) I remember seeing this with 2 friends opening day and we were awe struck by what we saw. Light sabers cutting through doors, jedi in their prime, sith lords, fully CGI characters, and a great move score. I saw it many times again in the theater, probably 5 or 6. The hype and marketing surround it's release has not been matched since and that was just fun to experience. So many good memories. :)

    I still remember when Obiwan and QuiGon removed their hoods at the beginning of the movie and that was when it really hit me that we were getting new SW movies for the first time in 16 years. I went into TPM totally unspoiled so I had no idea what to expect. I remember being satisfied when we got out of the theater, but (like any SW movie) there is a lot to process and requires more viewings to truly gauge a film. 20 years does make me feel old as I was 26 at the time.
