Everyone I’ve talked to and every blog I’ve read (that I can find) has been either negative or mostly-negative. Is it because I’m a girl?
I have no problem with episode one. Jar Jar whatever was supposed to be annoying, get over it people.
I have no problem with episode two. It was worth it just to watch Yoda’s fight scene.
And I loved episode three. The last hour was incredible. I wanted to rent Star Wars that night just for the closure.
When I was a little kid, I was devastated when no one could tell me why Darth Vader went to the dark side. I was 5 when ep 6 came out in theaters. I thought people were just teasing me, until I learned the horrible truth (to a little kid) – we would never know. Perhaps I went into these movies just grateful for the backstory, and I came out of ep 3 relieved (at the same time shocked-and-awed by those two scenes) just having all the loose-ends tied.
I know Dark Tower fans will agree with me on that one.
Oh well, even if I’m the only one around here who loved Star Wars, it’s okay. Silent Bob’s got my back – MAJOR SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t seen the movie yet – http://www.viewaskew.com/news/sith/
