So I'm late

I meant to write this last Thursday, but I was too busy with other things.

Revenge of the Sith cements the idea that George Lucas is a brilliant geek, not a brilliant filmaker. The plot was obvious, the acting was wooden, and the dialogue was awful. And how is it that a civilization that has mastered interstellar travel and artificial limbs can't invent a decent epidural?

Nevertheless, I enjoyed it. The effects were stupendous, the fight sequences were awesome, and the overall emotional impact of the movie made up for all its flaws (of course one could say that about every Star Wars movie, excepting The Empire Strikes Back -- the best of them all).

Go and see it. Of course by now, most of you already have.
