maybe the helmet will help... if he can put it on early enough in the film.

When did Fabio become a Jedi? :eek:

Man...he can act.....even Ewan McGregor's and Samuel l's acting are just as dry as his...witch leads me to believe it's not the actors fault.

Probably as much a problem was the script. Yeah, but hopefully the actors are allowed to inject some feelings into their lines this time around, instead of sounding ponderous and philisophical all the time.

Whatthe... no spoiler warning? I haven't had the guts to look :)

Edit: Lame, I thought I was gonna see a lifesupport-suit.

I have to go with bad directing on that last one. A good director can get good acting, you do another take til you got it.

CLEAN-UP! the thread was already started yesterday...

spoiler alert on something you'll see in the final Star Wars movie ever!

The imagery is going to be FAR MORE GRAPHIC then anyone would suspect from a Star Wars film. I'm talking definitely PG-13 material. When they said this one was going to be dark, they meant it. Anakin is burnt to a crisp from neck down in what I saw, indeed his hair has been burned away and his head contains the exact same scarring we see in Jedi, including that large tear/scar. However, his face is WAY more burned up and disfigured than is seen in Jedi. Presumably some of the disfigurement has healed over the years when he finally is liberated by Luke.
I really can't overestimate how freaky it was...if this incarnation sees the light of the day on the big screen, be prepared for a really disturbing sight. In fact, burned to a crisp is an understatement.

err... where exactly did you get this 'sneek peek' of the scars and burns?

at theforce.net

the best starwars info site on the web aside from starwars.com itself.

beware though, they do have spoilers

Spoilers! Highlight to read:

-The new bad guy has his own vehicle that is involved in the big chase scene in the movie. Obi-Wan aboard his digital beast is also involved.

-The name Utapau is being resurrected for use in the film.

-Yes, that was a funeral scene on the webcam. No, it is not a clone, a dupe or a ruse as to who dies.

-Anakin vs. Dooku. Palpatine is shackled to his chair watching (with commentary).

-New bad guy has white armor.
