Star Wars Episode 3 Play-By-Play In Pictures

Star Wars Prequels 443

jflint writes "Here is a site with over 80 screenshots (claiming more to come) that shows the story line of the upcoming Star Wars Episode 3. Some of the screenshots have French subtitles in them." These shots -- especially the space battle scenes -- certainly make it look more worthwhile than the two prior episodes.

buro9 (633210) | more than 9 years ago | (#11754345)

You know... this should really be made part of the editors task.

If a news story is screenshots... especially if it's 10+ high res... tar + gzip them all and make a torrent somewhere.

Then sure, post the source... but more importantly... post the torrent link.

This happens way too often not to be something that could be done.

What about a slashdot tracker? Have rules on things only being addable by editors, and they can only do so via submitting a story.

Isn't this what it's about? Damn... where's that Slashcode site again? Sounds like the time to merge Blog Torrent and Slash together.

Mitichlorians (I've seen it spelled fifty different ways) are what determines your natural ability to, well, "use the force".

The problem people have with them is that it's no longer mystical, it's no longer "anyone can be a Jedi if you believe in yourself and follow the code of help-little-old-ladies cross the street". It's now technical, you're either born with it or you're not, and if not, you're basically assed out, no matter how much you wanted to be a Jedi when you were 12 (or 20, or 30, or whatever).

I had a theory[0] that maybe it's just natural intuition, and you can still do Jedi-y things with training, but still, that means you're studying how to move shit around with your mind while Bill over there skipped a grade and is busy rearranging Darth Vader's atomic structure to turn him into a giant badger made of Legos.

IOW: Lucas fucked up the story.

[0] Alright, I'm analyzing it way too much, have way too much time on my hands, and you could call me a nerd for doing it, but I'm not one of those people that shows up to the premieres with a lightsabre or anything. Even if I was, this is Slashdot, I could get away with it. Hell, it'd probably get me karma.

I doubt I will.

I waited in line overnight for Episode 1 tickets. Brought furniture, games, beer, etc, and had a blast. Convinced Dominos to deliver to a city sidewalk. The movie itself was a disappointment, and Ep2 failed to revive any Star Wars interest in me, but I still saw it in the theaters within the first week.

Lucas has failed this avid theater goer. Someone asked me the other day what the subtitle for Ep3 was, and I couldn't remember. Given that I'm a movie trivia junkie, I surprised myself with my apathy.

Star Wars Episode 3...and I simply don't care. Lucas really had to work hard to accomplish that.

Why does everyone assume that a server that is hosting static pages with static images is "on its knees" when a lot of people go to it?

More amazingly, this is mod'd Informative. Here's a clue: Serving static pages with static images doesn't take a lot of processing power, memory, or I/O on the server. It's the bandwidth of the hosting ISP (in this case, a school) and the ISPs connecting it to the Internet that are "on its knees" right now. The server is likely humming along just fine and could host many more users on it providing they were on the same local subnet.

I'm not concerned about the movie's looks or story though...Star Wars is always at the top with those. For the most part, everyone has to agree that the story line for the first two prequels outside of a few annoying pieces is actuallly pretty good.

What worries me most is the dialogue...that is where the first two prequels failed and where the original trilogy got everyone hooked.

"These shots -- especially the space battle scenes -- certainly make it look more worthwhile than the two prior episodes."

When the first one came out, everyone was so excited. People were camped in front of movie theaters for months, and you could easily get the impression that this was going to be one of the best movies of all time.

Then they saw Jar-Jar and the rest is history.

When the second one came out, people were once again excited. Yeah, they remembered how horrible the first one was, but this new Star Wars promised to be much better! Less Jar-Jar, a new Anakin, and an improved storyline.

Then everyone realized that while it might be better than the first one, that isn't saying much.

Now they release a few pretty pictures from the third one and once again, you have people saying it "look(s) more worthwhile". Sigh. Hey look, someone wrote the word gullible on the movie theater ceiling!

I guess the first movies spoiled us all, and now we're all film experts. Oh well. I'll enjoy episode 3 alone, I guess, in a nice quiet empty theater. Now that's comfort.

Pictures/trailers are meaningless (5, Interesting)

I don't know if you remember the trailer for The Phantom Menace, but it had the Duel of the Fates song in the background and that trailer was amazing! After 20 years or whatever since Return of the Jedi, it made my knees week. That alone is proof that you can take a crappy two hour movie and turn it into an awesome 1 minute commercial.

I was hoping that we'd get to see darth vader in his bad-ass ways (like choking a few officers). If these screenshots are true to the story - then we wont be getting any of that. Still, its got potential to be a good movie.

You do - Anakin is Vader before the suit, or at least that was my understanding, although the captions seem to indicate otherwise. I thought he became Vader around the point that Obi-wan and Yoda seem him kneeling before Palpatine

America stopped making good movies about 20 years ago. The endless bucket of shit that comes out of Hollywood must stop.

Let's think on some great innovative ground breaking American blockbusters over the last decade or so...um....er...

Independance Day ?, Mission Impossible ?

oh dear..

**ATTENTION SPOILER***





Palpatine is actually a bad guy.

*Shock*
*Horror*

Fair warning: (4, Informative)

I saw these last night, and this is about the biggest spoiler you can possibly see for the movie. Almost every scene is pictured, along with a description of each scene.

Nothing We Haven't Already Seen (2)

Let's see:

* Battling droids, been there, done that.
* Fighting in front of the old guy, ditto
* Hand getting cut off, check
* Stupid names, got it
* Holograms, yep
* Space battles, uh huh
* Yoda fighting, did that

So, why should I spend my money on this? I already know how it will end and since Lucas is writing the dialogue, I already know it'll be bad. The special effects are common as dirt these days.

I think I'll give it a pass.

I swear I see it (1)

Hopefully I'm not the only one who sees the Enterprise-D in a lot of these shots.

Looks great! Less filling! (than "regular" Star Wars fare)

Darn! (0)

How can we debate these pictures without spoiler warnings. And the Slashdot filter won't allow spoiler spaces. Oh well: If Padme dies giving birth, how can Princess Leia recall her in Return of the Jedi?
