Star Wars Cliff Notes

We haven't been to see That Movie yet. The last two, which I try very hard to pretend never happened, were so bad, that although everyone says this last of the prequels is an improvement, we haven't felt all that motivated to see it. Maybe we aren't the übergeeks we thought we were. Still, seen the movie or not, Big Arm Woman gives a thumbnail recap that will have you rolling.


I have to admit, I'm a Star Wars geek I loved the movie! I hope you'll give it a chance to win you over.

Saw it this weekend. It's definitely an improvement over the other two. Of course, that's a relative statement. It's better in the way that "merely awful" is better than "disastrous."

My wife and I found ourselves laughing out loud at the pallid performances and dialouge. We were the only ones laughing. Other people just glared at us.

We actually liked it a lot . . . wound up seeing it twice in two days due to friends who wanted to see it with us, and it held up fairly well . . . though the second showing started at 9:15 p.m., and I pretty much slept through all the lightsaber fights. There are a lot of them. I was quite well-rested by the end.

I love Star Wars and I hated the other two, but I thought I was the only one!! Haven't seen the new one yet.

Don't let the good reviews fool you. If you care at all for story and plot, and I think you do, this one is easily the worst of the lot. It's just fight after fight with visible holes where neccessary exposition was ripped out to make room for more lightsaber action. I actually didn't mind the first two-I could go for the whole emulation of 1930s serials thing in terms of acting, dialogue, etc. to a greater degree than most-but Sith was a HUGE disappointment.
