My Review
No spoilers here, just a simple review. I was lucky enough to attend this film on Friday with my company. It was go see the movie, or work for another two hours, so I chose the movie. I know to a lot of nerds out there it’s a no brainer, however I haven’t been real pleased with George Lucas since his late 90’s re-release of episodes IV – VI where he seems to do a little butchering to the films.

Anyway, Revenge of the Sith will be good for those Star Wars fans such as myself that refused to see Episode I & II and just want to see something a little more like what we grew up with. I will admit I watched about 10 minutes of Episode I on Fox last weekend, I couldn’t stand it. It is also my understanding that Lucas spent so much time focusing on little tangents in Episode I & II it was apparent that Episode III was negatively affected.

I will tell you this, Episode II has peaks and valleys, it is good and exciting then lulls, then goes real fast, then lulls, then gets exciting…you get the idea. Feels like Lucas had a lot of ground to cover in 2 hours and 20 minutes.

I’m not a person who enjoys dropping $10 a ticket for a movie, since this was free it was great to see int eh theater, but I don’t feel there was anything so great about it that you need to see it in the theater.

Remember, these are my opinions, so don’t go getting your R2-D2 underroos in a bunch.
