    Aug 11, 2008, 1:52 AM - Just watched CLONE WARS (special preview).......possible spoiler #1

    The Navy base here in Lemoore, CA just showed the Clone Wars movie. It took about 20 minutes to finally "get used" to the new look.......once you are passed that, the movie was actually pretty entertaining. Lots of action and lots of emphasis on the characters' personalities (including Clones).

    The movie was pretty much full of battles from start to finish and the kids will love a lot of the cute stuff (baby Hutt, mischievious jawas, stupid droid humor, and of course R2D2 antics).

    I do feel the lightsaber battles could have been much better considering it was limitless to what could be portrayed on screen.

    Anyway, you can judge for yourself in a couple of days.

    I got to see it last night at a charity for Ronald McDonald House that our local garrison was invited to troop. It was a great. I'm already looking forward to seeing it again.

    Personally, I'm happy to see R2-KT's appearance, it may be just me, but man I was so happy to see that.

    And I was happy to hear about it. A friend of mine saw the screening over the weekend and told me it was in there. If you know thw story behind R2KT, then you know how touching it is. I hope to see the movie next week.

    I missed it.....but what part did R2KT show up?

    I remember when Katie passed, but I never did hear about the droid until just now. I'll definitely watch for her the next time I see Clone War.

    I too loved the inclusion to R2-KT into the script... it touched my heart in a big way...

    I saw it on Sunday morning, and will again on Wed night, before the week of trooping the cinemas happen from Thurs night onwards.. :P

    Yeah, I've seen it today along with several of my Garrison and TDH members
    in S.F. It was for a special press release preview night.
    Don't want to say anything about the movie. I don't want to spoil it for anyone.

    This has probably been asked somewhere else but why didn't they get Tem to do the voices of the clones in The Clone Wars?
    When reading Karen Traviss novels, my mind is reading the clones with a New Zealand accent, obviously.
    The clones (in The Clone Wars) sound like ( no offense intended) someone trying to do an Australian accent.. badly.

    Please don't get me wrong, I am going to see it this weekend with my partner and we are both very exited but I was just curious about Tem's lack of involvement.

    Funny thing about that. My 6-year-old wanted me to read "The Mandalorian Armor" (not Karen Traviss) to him, and I find myself doing the accent when I read Boba's lines. And he also runs around with his new Clone Trooper helmet doing the accent himself. It's so cute.

    Going to see it at the first showing on Friday.

    Just got back from watching it. I thought it was pretty good, loved the battle scenes, the way you felt like you were in the middle of it. Didn't stay past the credits, what did I miss

    Just got home from seeing it. I had only one complaint.... the guy sleeping behind me was snoring reeeaaally loud. It was a fun movie. As cartoony it was I loved the textures of everything. the armor all looked amazing. And the eyes. especially the hutt's eyes

    Nothing important. It was just a Jawa trio holding onto the LucasFilm logo, they drop it and run away.

    MY REVIEW.....
    the good... very nice battles and all the spaceships looked so good they looked like the live action movies!!!... Assajj Ventress rocked!!!!... and its STAR WARS!!!!

    the bad... the opening crawl... where was it??? that was such a let down!!! it wouldn't have been so bad if I didn't see the "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away... "screen. Then they tried to do some type of Starship Troopers opening and I was saying NOOOO!!! what are you doing to MY movie!!! that took about 20 minutes to get over... next... Zero the hutt?? I have a few gay friends so I'm not even close to being homophobic but why did they make a Hutt gangster so wildly and openly gay??? that just doesn't fit in the Star wars universe. and lastly a lot of the music did not fit star wars at all...I thought the phantom menace soundtrack was out of place.. they did a cheap muzak version of the opening theme alot of weird stuff in the middle and at the end, a weird muzak ending theme... very odd ... well the verdict.....
