Cutest Movie Comment Ever

I finally got around to renting Star Wars III. I'm a fan, but movies I and II were so egregiously bad that I got turned off on the whole thing. Plus, watching the 30-year-old geek stand in line got tiresome. Anyway, this holiday after watching "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" (one has to trade one movie for another) we started Star Wars. My wife was asleep within about 10 mins, before anyone had even landed a ship. At the end, as is our routine, I woke her up and started to bring her upstairs. In a sleepy half-conscious place she said:

"Did we ever find out how Anakin becomes C-3PO?"

I love my wife.

Reminds me of the time Fiona, John Bristowe's fiancee, said to him, "Is that George Lucas?" while John was watching an MSDN TV interview with Don Box.

My spouse keeps her nose out of all things tech. So I don't have any similar gems to share.

We just saw this too. Two scenes struck me as hilarious (although I am sure they were inintentionally funny):

1) The end of Anakin & Obi-Wan's duel (recall the Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail)

2) Darth stepping off the "table" and shrieking "Noooooo!"

Star Wars will always be a trilogy for me (4,5 & 6 of course). Somebody stop George Lucas before he directs again.

I still haven't seen #3, and probably never will. The first 2 were too horrible. I want my money back!

Hahaha! That is hilarious! I remember a few years ago now when Episode I came out and after seeing it housemate 1 said to housemate 2, "so Anakin is Darth Vadar". The second housemate then get massively angry because we spoiled the ending. :)
