I was expecting more 3D and didn't really get that. It seemed as though there were maybe one or two great 3D shots. The movie at times was blurry and dark. I guess I was wanting more for the 15 dollars per ticket I spent. It seems like they rushed into making this film 3D.. I want another movie like avatar. Hoping and waiting for one like that.

I appreciate what Episode I provides for the overall storyline of Star Wars. However, this is the lowest ranked of the six for me. Jar-Jar Binks is just ridiculous and almost ruins the whole thing for me. But I was able to take my sons to see the movie in 3D and they loved it - so it's an evening well spent.

In hindsight I'm not sure why I shelled out $35 for my two sons and I to see a movie we own on DVD. I guess I expected the 3D experience to add a lot to the movie, it didn't. The majority of the movie it wasn't noticeable that we were watching a 3D movie.
I would not do it again. I am sure the episode 2 and 3 will be released in 3D in time as well. I will pass on those too.

True to the original except for 3D. The basic 3D was decent except for blurring during movement scenes. We were also disappointed at the lack of objects coming out of the screen at you and at no time did it feel like we were moving.
Overall, not worth the $50 for 3 tickets.

It was great to see this movie again on the big screen. The movie theater gives you an immersive experience, and the 3D added to that experience. It was not over-done, in-your-face 3D; it really just added another dimension (haha, literally) to the film. 3D is best when it feels like you are looking through a window into another world, not when that world is jumping out of the screen at you. There were a few moments when the 3D didn't work for me, but I enjoyed it for the vast majority of the time.
As far as the movie itself, I don't want to spend too much time discussing that. It's been out for almost 13 years; you either like it or you don't. If you are still angry about aspects of this movie (like, say, Jar Jar), it's time to let go. Star Wars is supposed to be something you sit down and have fun watching, and that's exactly what I got.
