Star Wars

I just saw Episode III Revenge of the Sith. My initial reaction is that while far better than Episode's I and II, it was inferior to IV and V. It has very well constructed CGI landscapes and well choreographed action sequences.

However, George Lucas should not be allowed to write dialouge and the rumors that Tom Stoppard reworked the screenplay only suggests how awful the original must have been. Also, Hayden Christensen must be immediately kicked out of the Screen Actors Guild and never be allowed in front of a camera again. He makes an early Stallone look smooth and an early Arnold look eriudite.

Dude, Hayden Christensen is perfect for the role of Ani/Darth. After all, it makes perfectly clear that Leia (Carrie Fisher, can act) takes after Mom (Natalie Portman, can act) and Luke (Mark Hamill, can't act) takes after Dad (see above).

Hayden Christensen makes Mark Hammill look like Olivier or Hopkins. Admitidly they did not have much to work with in the script but still.

I was greatly disapointed by the Noooooooo!!! yelled by Darth when told his wife had died. It was rather cheesy. I also had to wonder what happend to R2 in the interim becasue he was alot more mobile in the early years...
