I Can't Believe It's Over
by Tom Bozzo
So said a colleague of mine on the way out of Revenge of the Sith this afternoon. At least two regulars seem to be anticipating commentary, but I have to get to fish fry, so I'll just say this for now: if you are a Star Wars fan, just GO. If you have convenient access to a theatre with digital projection equipment, go to that theatre. (The nearest one to us is in Schaumburg, IL; a bit of a hike, but some of us definitely will be going.) The MPAA rating should be heeded; my children will not be seeing it for some time.
I haven't seen this one yet, but I did see 4,5,6, 1, & 2. All I have to say is I can't believe it was over after #6. #1 and #2 were pretty awful movies from Jar-Jar, to Anakin's speed-racing, to Yoda flipping around going ya, ya, ya, while karate chopping and light sabering. Even #6 catered directly to kids with the whole Ewok thing. But then again, I was too young to grow up with Star Wars, so I don't have the same nostalgia for it as your colleague.Post a Comment
