OK, parts I didn't like:
Hearing James Earl Jones say "Where is padme? Is she alright?" And when he basically said "Khaaaaan!" (do I see another website coming up in the near future??)
Samuel L Jackson survived 3 movies without dropping the F-Bomb. Couldn't Lucas just have him say "Give me my lightsaber"... "The one that says Bad-ass muthafucker on it"?
I wish Sam Jackson went in a more majestic way... but hey, he did knock down a sith lord...
I really wish they woulda taken the wookies on Kashyyyk, and have a little scene where someone tries to kill Chewbacca as they ship him to a slaver camp, and a young empire captian named "Solo" saves him and escapes...
The emperor fought like an old man. Not majestic at all, and slow. I was hoping for more of a yoda type battle...
"Medically she is fine, but she is dying. She seems to have lost the will to live." Give me a break. Just have her die in childbirth by complications. Why was the extra drama injected unnecessarily????
Mind you, those are pretty minor things to dislike, which is why the movie was great. Some things I caught that some others may not have:
The emperor talking to anakin discusses the "Wise Darth Plateus" (and eludes that he was his mentor and he killed him in his sleep). When talking about it, he says he was powerful enough in the dark side to actually manipulate the midiclorins to create life.
*dingdingding* Anakin was born without a father, and, in fact, was born by the midiclorins by themselves.
My theory is that Darth Plateus created Anakin. Why in such a remote place with a slave girl? Because then the Jedi wouldn't recognize his power, and he'd be able to sweep in and purchase the 'slave boy' to make him his apprentice. But, eventually, Plateus died his untimely death, and the Jedi stumbled upon him...
At the end when the emperor and vadar are looking at the construction of the death star, the officer standing next to them is Grand Moff Tarkin, the man in charge of the Death Star in EpIV
C3P0 and R2D2 are given to Captain Antillies (sp?). They mention this in EpIV, but what other people don't know is the character "Wedge" from the original trilogy... his full name is "Wedge Antillies". Captian Antillies is either his father or him.
Kenobi and Darth Vadar are the only characters to appear in all six movies (bound to be a trivia question, eventually). Yoda and the Emperor do not appear in EpIV.
