Episode III


Besides Kingdom of Heaven, the other big Hollywood movie this year is Starwars - Episode III Revenge of the Sith. The film opens May 19, 2005.

After Episode II, the expectations are low for Sith. I am sure most Starwars fans on this board agree with me that Episode II was the worst of the Starwars films in all categories. It had the worst acting, the worst script, and was the least creative and most boring of the series. Unlike Episode I there was no redeeming scene in the film that made it worth seeing. (For example, Episode I is also a crappy movie except for the fight with Darth Maul, which is one of the best, if not the best, segment of all the films). The letdown of Episode II can only be compared to the letdown Kerry supporters had on November 3, 2004. How horrible it would be to be a Starwars fan and a Kerry supporter.

Rumor has it that Episode III is the "darkest" of the series. Hopefully this means they will not interject Jar Jar in between scenes of Darth Vader being thrown into a lava pit.

In all some of the Starwars series may last through the ages to become perhaps the beowolf of the golden age of film...or is it today's trash!

Don't forget the pod race from Episode I. I watch that a few times a year.

Overall, however, Lucas destroyed the franchise. As Lileks has said, in the end, this is a series of movies which, chronologically, starts with Jar Jar Binks and ends with dancing teddy bears. Bah, bah, dah ba do! Ya YA! Bah, Bah, dah ba do! Ya YA!
