Revenge of the S..t

Saw Star Wars III. I think that if you spliced episodes I, II and III together, you might get a pretty decent movie. Just take the last half an hour from this one - because no other bit in it deserves saving. The first third of the movie is mostly boring - I yawned at the attempts to create sense-of-wonder (you know guys, there's a thing called "too much").

The middle part of the movie I mostly giggled through, much to the annoyance of my fellow moviegoers, I'm sure.

The final third had a bit of the same feeling as the old saga, and I had nearly a tear in my eye at one point. But still.

Star Wars III is kinda like going to a bad hamburger place: It's crap food, and then you laugh at a poor waiter who drops a tray and makes a mess, but their ice cream leaves a decent aftertaste.

Next time, I'll just have the ice cream, thanks.

Brilliant review :)

Just wondering why should anyone laugh at the poor waiter?

Sometimes things are comical, even if they're not supposed to be so. That's exactly the point - you shouldn't be laughing at something, but you do it anyway, just simply because the situation is funny and you can't contain yourself.

I'm OK with your review, but please tell me that you cut out any reference and all of Jar Jar's scenes ;-)

Well, Jar Jar says only one line in the movie, and that's "Sorry". I think that was the other highlight of the movie for me :-)
