Last night, I went to watch Star Wars with Mike and the rest of the gang. We had dinner at KFC near Open Air though we actually agreed to go to Open Air in the first place. Julian had bought the tickets a day earlier. So we didn't have to worry if there wasn't any seats left. Bernard and Jay Jay went for a drink at Open Air and they met Mr. Michael Toh dressed really flesh revealing as Bernard and Jay Jay had decribed to us.
After dinner, we went to Star Cineplex. It was pack with people. We were 45 minutes early. So we went downstairs for a game of pool. After two games, we went upstairs and it felt like sardines pack in a tin. The places was filled with people. There were barely space to move. Bernard was saying to walk through that crowd is to die. Haha.. Since I was holding all the tickets I had to get to the other end where the rest of the gang was. So Mike and I squeezed our way through and finally after passing through the large crowd, we got to the other side near the ticket counter.
As the crowd disappear into Cineplex 3, we joined the crowd. Our seats were on the second last row. Not too bad~ By the time we got in, they were already showing trailers of movies that are coming soon. Just to name a few;Initial D, War of The Worlds Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Batman. The trailers all looked good. Hoping to catch em' when they open in the cinema.
Star Wars : Revenge of The Sith, the last episode to the trilogy is really good. Although it was made with all the best and latest technology, it feels like the old version. They didn't spoil the effect of the old episodes. C-3PO's part was really small in this episode though. I find Yoda, the green small creature to be really cute. I don't mind having him as a stuff toy. =P
I got a little confused during the movie as I tried recalling what I've watched many years ago. I remembered watching the old Star Wars when I was in primary school. Back then it was on video tapes. Haha~ Look how fast technology grows. I wonder in 10 years time what will we be using to watch movies. Super micro disc~ Haha..
I find Anakin Skywalker cute before he turned to the dark side. To hear Ewan Mcgregor's voice as Obi Wan Kenobi is really hilarious as most of the movies I've watch him act is Down with Love and Moulin Rouge. Roles which shows him as a romantic lover not a fighter. R2-D2 is really cute too~ I find the droids actually to be nice just on the wrong side. The funniest part would be when the droid was saying 'Thank you' to General Grievous who was impolite.
Padme Amidala played by Natalie Portman was really beautiful especially when she was um... in her coffin. Seriously, I loved how they layed her hair with the pretty flowers in her hair. She looked really pretty then. Chancellor Palpatine always has that erk grin. Its not a smile. Remember the character Jar Jar Binks? I miss him. He's a really funny character in the Star Wars Episode II : Attack of The Clones.
By the time the movie ended, we all used the stairs down. It was only 4 floors down. Its better than waiting for lift and squeezing with everyone. We all hung out outside Julian's car talking bout the movie and their favourite subject, football. I wanted to try reversing Julian's car out but with everyone around made me real nervous. =p The moment I turned the engine on, Hazwan, Soffian and Bernard were rushing to get out of the car with Bernard shouting, "I'm too young to die!!" Funny but insulting my ability to drive. Haha.. I don't mind. Not that I went for proper and formal lessons.
We left the place and was heading home. Soffian was pointing at the fluorescent light on the ceiling to use it as a light saber. Haha.. =p The influence of movies~ Mike had to send Bernard and I back while Julian had to send back Jay Jay, Hazwan and Soffian home. Poor him~ I only managed to get home at 1.30am. Lucky for me, I didn't get bomb from my mum. I just realized that it has been 2 months plus since I last went out at night.
All in all, it is not a movie to be missed. Go catch it in the cinemas. Forget buying the pirated version first. Watch it with full effect, good sound system and a big screen then only get the pirated version. Hehe.. =p Last but not least, MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!
