    my wife and i went to the imax theater at the mall of georgia last night and checked out attack of the clones on imax. that was awesome - imagine a screen almost 4x the size of a regular screen. it was worth seeing it again.

    check it out, see if it's playing in your area. it's worth it - lots of fun.

    As well as being a bass nut, I'm something of a film buff. Anyway I just wanted to let everyone know that due to the limitations of the IMAX format, the version of Episode 2 showing in IMAX theaters is 24 minutes shorter than the original. Understand that I'm not saying that this is necessarily a bad thing, as many people who have seen the IMAX version have PREFERRED the quicker pacing of it to the original. :)

    I too enjoy the IMAX format, and I think more and more mainstream theatrical releases will be finding their way to IMAX re-releases. Besides Episode 2, Apollo 13 is another movie that was released in IMAX format. Hopefully we'll see more soon!

    yeah, they got rid of the "frolicking with the buffalo" scene on naboo, among others. :rolleyes:, which was a welcome absence.
     
  8. i noticed too they cut some scenes out. but it didn't matter. Those Chest-Molesting rumbles too of the starships too i'm sure made any bassist happy. (at least it made me)

    great...

    so i can see even more horrible acting and dialogue on a gigantic 4 story screen, and in super surround sound?

    sounds like hell to me... ;)

    they shoulda just clipped ALL of the dialogue scenes in general and just ran all the actions scenes.

    that attack with the clones on IMAX??? HOLY CRAP!
