RATE the CLONE WARS movie!

Ok, I just came back from seeing the CLONE WARS animated movie, and I thought it was alright. Not perfect, but not as bad as some others think. How would you rate it?

I gave it a 'Fair' vote. Was going to go with 'Average' but Ziro the Hutt and all of Ahsoka's 'Sky Guy' and 'Artooie' quips brought my vote down.

OMG....you HAVE to see Dark Knight!  Best comic movie EVER!     Wait for the DVD release of Clone Wars (which will probably be before Christmas).

Before Christmas? I'm betting it comes out on DVD before the TV series starts up in the fall.

Hell movie screens aren't even cold anymore before the movie hits dvd these days. It's a lot faster with all movies then it used too be.

Even more so with this movie. I'm guess it has another 2 weeks in theaters, 3 at the most before it gets yanked.

Me. You got a problem with that?  >:(

I didn't like it. Period. Music sucked. Story sucked. Basically, it sucked. I voted for "What went wrong?" - not the giant commercial option, although it could have gone either way.

Was I your choice Steve? I hope so. Don't want to let anyone down  >:D

Nope - you were not it, although in hindsight, should have been!  >:D

Dude, if you hated it, you hated it. That's why I won't see it until DVD. At least then to me, I won't think of it as a theatrical release.

I thought i had some great moments. Not a big fan of the animation, but the action played out really well in quite a few scenes. All and all a good film.

I'd give it a B+  Ilijed it but it falls behind pahntom menace in my all time favorite starwars movie scale. I would rate all the starwars movies from best to not best as follows: TESB, ROTJ, ATOC, ROTS, ANH, TPM, TCW.  Feel free to disagree troopers, but that's how I rate them from best to worst.  That being said I still like the worst one.

Ok, I saw it twice now.

What worked:
Another Star Wars story with a few new characters.

What didn't work:
Then intro title screen was rushed.
The beginning narrating voice didn't fit at all.
The story was made for TV, simple and not too exciting. Not epic like the other SW movies.
The conclusion was anticlimactic.

Result:
Hey it's still Star Wars and still more interesting than most stuff out there!
But not different enough or polished enough to even think about comparing to the other films.
I actually found the Cartoon Network Clone Wars done a few years ago to have a more interesting story.

Okay, I will.  >:D

Wow. ANH 5th out of 7?  :o Really?

I know most people put ESB at #1. But ANH 5th? That's a first for these eyes.

I liked it. I have never seen a TV show on the big screen so that was cool. The price admission sucked should have been cheaper, but o well it was being booked a "movie" so what can ya do. It will be a good TV series I do believe. I really don't think GL should have pumped this out to the theaters however, because all it is is the 1st 3 episodes of the series. He had to start some where so he chose this. Since it was dubbed a movie I am sure people were thinking they would going to get the same quality or lack there of as his movies. With that being said I think that some people might have thought this was going to be the next coming of SW and had high hopes for it. You can't really compare this to all the other "movies" because in reality it isn't a movie it is a TV show pumped out to the theaters dubbed as a movie. If this was an actually movie then it wasn't the greatest, but since this is a TV show it was alright. What has to be remembered is that this is a TV series not a movie series so it will not have the same content as the movies do. No need for it this is supposed to be a continuous series not a throw in everything in 2 hrs type of deal. I do think this will explain more than any movie could and if GL wants to continue to do these types of things to help people understand the stories and fill in the gaps that would be alright.

Ok I am done. I have been wanting to say something for a while now and finally got it off my chest. lol

Completely agree with you there! The intro voice almost turned me away from even liking this at all.

Well I saw it saturday again with my oldest.

He loved it, and I like it even more now.

It was cool, he was naming all the characters, and pointing out ships and naming them, and such. As a father and a star wars fan I was proud.
