    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.

    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.

    Never seen a single Star Wars movie, nor have I seen a single Star Trek episode. On that note, can you gain/lose rep points on boards non-related to baseball?

    On my VHS copy he most certainly gets off a shot. It's almost simultaneous.

    Well I went to the 12:01 showing tonight... I must say it was very good. I know I am not the avid Star Wars fan, but I enjoyed the other movies and this one was just incredible. I don't think there was a dull scene throughout the entire movie. Now that it is over I find it sad.
