Not only is the print fantastic (IMAX's 70mm instead of standard 35mm) and the sound awesome, but they cut what seems like 30 or so minutes from the film!
What does this mean? Well, since most of the cutting seems to have been done in the middle, a lot of the unnecessary (and painful) "love" "scenes" between Anakin and Amidala are gone. Calling Anakin "Annie?" Gone. Half of the "I hate sand" monologue? Gone. The scene where Anakin rides around on the annoying upside-down-gourd-shaped sount beast? Gone! Amazing!
I enjoyed myself thoroughly. And, please, like you wanted to buy yet another IMAX ticket just to watch one more volcano/space shuttle documentary. IMAX theater listings.
