Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

So.

I went and saw Revenge of the Sith. I liked it, but then, you know, I liked The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, so make of that what you will. To me, all the prequels are on par quality wise with the originals, and anyone who tries to convince you otherwise is clearly on crack. To quote Alec Guinness, "I just couldn't go on speaking those bloody awful, banal lines."

I'm not into dissecting Star Wars films, possibly because the seven year old in me won't have none of it. The films are for him and the adult part of me just gets up and leaves for the duration of them. So I've nothing to say, really, about anything in the film, except to note how surprised I was by how much I wanted to watch A New Hope at the end of it. The set up bridge at in the third film for the fourth (the original) was, really, quite impressive. Outside that, what is there to say? It's bigger. It's beautiful imagery. And when the lightsabers break out, the child in me is nurtured.
