Got around to watching Revenge of the Sith

No spoilers

My wife and I went to see Revenge of the Sith last night and were both rather disappointed. Overall, the movie's getting better reviews than episodes one or two, but it still suffers from the same flaws as those two films. The action scenes were very cool, technically speaking, but somehow most of them weren't emotionally engaging.

The dialogue between Anakin and Padme was just godawful. I've seen porn flicks with more convincing lines.

We both had the same reaction -- that it was a really great plotline and kind of a crime that more wasn't done with it. In a movie that runs 140 minutes, George, couldn't you spare your lead character 30 - 40 minutes for character development?

And the number of severed limbs this time around?!? One or two more and it would have been a Mel Brooks gag.
