Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash: Pick Two

Revenge of the Sith

As I'm on my way out the door to the datacenter (where the internet lives!) in downtown LA, I haven't time for a serious review.

But my quick thoughts are; this is the movie I wanted to see in Episode I. It has the verve and grandeur of the original three movies. It is visually gob-smacking. It lacks serious character development in some important ways that make a few crucial scenes slightly puzzling - but it also lacks (mostly) the cardboard flat dialogue of the first two installments.

In all, an amazing epic - and a fine highpoint to end the (movie) franchise on, even if it is an incredibly downbeat ending. Epic, amazing, and without a doubt worth seeing.
