Re: 22 reasons why Episode III is fantastic
I've been saying for six years that the Jedi didn't really want balance in the Force. after all, didn't they slaughter the Sith? ergo, logically, "balance in the Force" requires that the Sith take control. but hey, no one ever listens to me, or else the casting of a lot of movies would be very different.

I dug the little Yoda super ball fighting style. I was also madly amused at the contrast between Yoda and the Wookiees.
it was really nice to see Alderaan.
I liked the visual parallels between the OT and this movie--like when Anakin is fighting Dooku (okay, that's officially the stupidest name in the history of Star Wars, and that includes the-Jedi-who-is-a-martial-arts-style) is so obviously choreographed to look like the fight between Vader and Luke in Jedi. soooooo cool.
and, yes, in places the dialogue was just awful. there were places where the entire theatre groaned or sighed or at least shuffled awkwardly. clearly, George Lucas needs, at bare minimum, an editor to say, "hey, George, that's a really dumb line." but oh, well.
James Earl Jones should never be forced to say, "noooooooo!"
