Revenge of the Sith
So I really enjoyed the movie. It really tied together a lot of the loose ends. I’m sure there are a lot of unanswered questions still but it probably wraps up most of the questions. We saw it on Friday afternoon and there wasn’t much of a crowd, I guess the die-hard fans all skipped work/school the day before or when the the midnight show the day before.
It was very violent though. Before I saw it some TV review said the final battle (Obi-wan and the soon-to-be Darth) was really violent (and to take your kids up for popcorn then) but I though the others were more so, especially the implications of the scenes not seen. Anakin has some serious mental health issues, he’d be on some serious meds if he didn’t live so far far away (and a long time ago).
The special effects were awesome, everything seemed very real. Some of the scenes were way too busy though with all the ships and stars and laser beams floating all around.
And I know Natalie Portman can act, so why didn’t they let her?!?
Two minor spoiler: The tiny little globes with the buzz-saws why didn’t they just blow-up instead of sawing. When did R2 get all the extra gizmos and the maneuverability? (Actually the real question is when did he lose it?)
