1st commandment of being a Star Wars fan:

	Thoult shall not mention the Holiday Special.

Duly respected.....

...not yet.....

> Slave-1 - seriously ubercool!

The concussion mines were amazing. We were in a cinema with a *really*
good sound system, I jumped when the first one went off.

> Mace Windu's purple lightsaber

He had one of the best lines of the film.

	"This party is over"

> Yoda's l33t j3d1 5k1ll5 - superb!

Everyone started cheering when he pulled his cloak back to reveal the
butt of his light-saber. And that noise he was making!! Reminded me of

> The constant original trilogy references - cute!

Obi-Wan "I've a feeling that boy will be the death of me"

Gotta give kudos to John Williams as well. The score was spot on.
Especially the little moments when the Imperial March crept in after
Anakin had slaughtered the Tuskan Raiders (and Hayden Christiansan(sp)
was superb), totally creepy. And how weird was it seeing the Lars

I'm going back tomorrow *:)
