Ok, so, I’ve seen it. I’ve seen the new Star Wars movie, Revenge of the Sith. And it was great. Of course, as I said before, it was silly and stupid. But it was also great. And (shockingly) it was better than the last two. In particular, the last half really worked. From the moment that Palpatine ordered the execution of the Jedi, the movie was pretty close to perfect, as far as Star Wars films go.

On a related note, this review in the New Yorker is hilarious. I don’t agree with everything he says, but his comment about Darth Vader and hockey is a quote to savor. PG-13 Warning: The review has some off-color humor.
