Great film but nowhere near as good as other saga finale's like Return Of The King, Return Of The Jedi, Revenge Of The Sith etc

Now Darth, I know you're a big new trilogy fan, but Revenge of the Sith doesn't deserve to be on that list. It didn't improve on the weaknesses of the entire new trilogy and added a few more, especially given how they pratically destroyed the conception that the old trilogy created of Darth Vader with the fight in Mustafar. 

RotS is probably the best of the three new trilogy movies (although my personal favourite is Phantom Menace, mainly because of the best fight scene in every star wars movie with one of the best songs as well, Duel of the Fates and the Pod Race), but it's miles away from the quality of Return of the Jedi and Return of the King. 

Also, how would you rate Alan Rickman's performance?

Thats your opinion though, Revenge Of The Sith more than deserves to be on that list for me. On Phantom menace, I will always be attached to it more as it was my first Star Wars movie and had the same effect on me that Star Wars (1977) had on its generation of kids, I hold Phantom Menace as the single movie that got me into watching films big time so I'll always be most attached to it out of any film ever. Anyway I don't want to debate Star Wars here because this is a Harry Potter review thread, we debate star wars in basically every other movie thread!

Alan Rickman was very good in parts that he was in, especially the pensieve bits. Not sure if it deserves an oscar nomination though.

Yes the flow felt really off in parts and felt like get a move on already at times to woah slow down at times.

To be completely honest, my personal opinion is that the expanded universe far outweighs anything created in the movies, both the old and the new trilogy. While the movies are great (I love the old and the new trilogy alike, though I distinctly prefer the old much more), the KOTOR series, in terms of story-telling and epic feeling of the force is unmatched. 

I don't think Alan Rickman would get an oscar nomination even if he did the best performance of an actor ever. These type of movies and characters don't nominations from the academy in the categories of acting performance.
