I am going to see it again tomorrow. As soon as I walked in the door last night, my dad and my daughter both cornered me and said, WELL HOW WAS IT??? So I spilled the beans. Dad says, okay I'll see it Saturday, and my daughter was silent... I said, what's wrong? She said, you know how much I like Yoda, and you said he had some great parts. When can we go see it Mommy???
I'm like, okay Saturday... maybe Sunday, too????
My kid will be a geek just like her momma! hah!
I guess I should have added ---- The Emperor -- Ian McDiarmid --- his part is probably one of the best acting jobs I've seen in ions. He goes from this calm looking, nice guy with "something hidden" to this heinous, CRAZY dude, laughing hysterically and freaky ugly from evil... every single scene with him in it you will be mesmerized, right up til the end where he kneels down and touches the forehead of the very burned and dismembered Anakin / Vader.
And yeah, I know Lucas gave Padme the buns on the head to foreshadow Leia's buns, but let's be real; Leia is SO MUCH MORE the woman than Padme could dream of. Natalie's part in this movie was totally weak and underused; I almost felt like they were treating her as an invalid just cuz she was pregnant. She went from being a strong, fighting woman to this wimpy pregnant chic with perfect hair. Bugged me. I mean I know you have to take it easy when you're preggers but let's be real here.
I'm counting down til I hear the drumroll tomorrow! I warned my daughter about General Grievous, even though he's not on the screen very long (too bad, he was a cool bad-guy) and about the Emperor. I told her the part where he "transforms" is pretty scary. I thought it was scarier than the part where Anakin was put into the black suit; cuz that part was honestly just dang sad, tearful... whereas when the Emperor became disfigured, it was spooky!!!
