Second Viewing

Yes, I went to watch Episode III twice in less than 24 hours. (Because my papers were kicking my ass, and I needed Star Wars to keep me sane.) Please don't tell my parents.When we left the theater the first time, I literally started shaking. It was a bit crisp at 3 a.m., but I was mostly shaking from all that adrenaline. This time, I felt pretty calm through most of the movie and even wondered if the magic was diluted.But then the Duel began. And some time during it, my heart started pounding in time with the music. I could only sit back and enjoy the best heart attack of my life.:D


It was another sold-out showing, with applause at the end. I enjoyed the second time even more, because the scenes no longer moved too fast and I was able to spot all the little things as Lucas brought us back to the atmosphere of ANH. I sat next to a couple--before the theater darkened, the girl was expressing her disappointment with the prequels. But she gasped when Anakin killed Dooku and clutched her boyfriend once Anakin began to turn. Nothing can replicate the feeling of the midnight showing, but watching her become so involved in the movie was a good substitute.
