Revenge of the Sith

| No TrackBacks

It's been quite awhile since I've done my ever popular movie review. So I suppose that I need to make up for lost time.
Yeah, I know that several quality copies are abound in cyberspace, but I took advantage of a matinee. Anyway, I'd have to say that Revenge of the Sith is arguably the best film of the year. For those that have not seen the Star Wars trilogy, that would be the films that took place during the late seventies; you need not worry. Actually, the episodes I - III occur before the George Lucas films of the seventies. You may ask, "Why did Lucas create these films out of order?" The answer is quite simple, according to Lucas, the technology was insufficient and could not tell the story appropriately. Therefore, the films were done out of order. So you could see the most recent Star Wars films and not really miss anything.

However, I would strongly encourage you to see the previous film,Attack of the Clones before viewing the Revenge of the Sith.

Hmm, where should I begin? There was alot of action in this film. We witnessed the birth of Darth Vader, as Anakes Skywalker is converted to the dark side of the force. It's very interesting to note that Vader doesn't appear to be quite as menacing. Due in part because, we have watched him grow from a boy. Certainly very different than what we remember from the seventies. As a child, the voice of James Earl Jones brought chills to my spine.

So as not to give away the entire story, I will offer the following viewpoints.
The storyline was rife with deceipt, struggle, and love. You really don't have to be a sci-fi buff to appreciate these qualities in a film.

I especially appreciated the struggle young Skywalker endured, as he battled with the evils of the dark side. Perhaps more notable was the absence of the beloved Ja Ja Binks :)

Do yourself a favor, and check out the matinee.
