    Just saw Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith

    Awesome! Five thumbs up!

    Thanks to a friend who manages a Showcase Cinemas, I got a chance to see this movie two days early in an empty theater. The first real shows are at midnight tonight (12 a.m. Thursday morning) but some people who bought those midnight tickets in advance misunderstood and showed up at midnight last night.

    Episode III is by far the best of the three prequels and, as far as story lines go, it easily rivals parts IV, V and VI. It's every bit as intense and dark as has been advertised. And, interestingly enough, knowing in advance the inevitable outcomes - especially Aniken's evolution into Darth Vader - made it even more intriguing and even painful. The epic battle scenes at the end are amazing...and surprising.

    I can't wait to see it again this weekend.

    I worked as projectionist in HS and this sort of thing was commom practice on the nights before openings, we'd have a big party and screen the film for problems. Other theaters did it and we would go to theirs and they would come to ours.

    Then we'd make giant reels of films out of previews and ads.... it was like reading Joyce... none of it made much sense.

    I worked as a projectionist over the summers when I was in college; they actually paid me to attend those "screening parties" to make sure nothing was wrong with the film and sign off an "inspection report" that certified the film wasn't spliced incorrectly and that the condition was satisfactory.

    By far, my favorite job that I've ever had.

    As for "Episode III: Revenge of the Sith", I was one of the idiots who lined up at midnight down at Newport on the Levee. Absolutely loved it.

    I thought there were several scenes that were just flat-out better than anything Lucas has ever directed before, and I thought this movie (for the first time in the new trilogy) succeeded because it grounded itself in questions of good and evil as opposed to the admittedly boring political squabbling that have tainted the last two films.

    I plan on seeing it again at some point. That's something I really haven't said in a while about a movie.

    Best of the first 3. The only part of the movie I didn't like was the cheesy nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo by Vader. Kudos for Lucas for not letting Jar Jar Binks have one single line in the movie. I wish that he would keep making Star Wars movies kinda like James Bond movies. They never get old and tons of people love them.

    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov

    And I always thought it was Gweedo the whole time.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
