The opening crawl of TPM? It's awful. It's all about taxation and federations and senates. BORING. Compare it to the crawls on Eps 4-6.
I went to see TPM this week, just because I want to see all 6 in 3D, even though I think the first 3 are simply awful.
Often when you see a film you like for the 10th time you see new details with every watching that make the film better. TPM is the opposite of that. It gets worse with every viewing.
I love 3D films, but this was the worst 3D film I've ever seen. I know Lucas wanted to be subtle with the 3D and keep everything "behind the screen", but it was BARELY 3D at all. You could almost have watched it without the glasses on. Most of the film there was no depth at all. Pointless.
And of course, being in 3D puts the glasses between you and the screen, and this was EASILY the darkest 3D movie I've ever seen too. Some scenes were totally ruined by being so dark.
If you want to see an awesome 3D film, go see Hugo. Definitely the best use of 3D to date.
Whatever you do, do not go see TPM in 3D. Avoid it. If you must watch TPM, buy the Blu-rays.
