Mmmmm, that's good Sith

I can't believe that I forgot to tell this lil' anecdote: During my freshman year of college, I convinced my best friend that Barry White was the voice of Darth Vader. If that were indeed true, the Empire would've been totally sexified.

Well, I saw Episode III on Friday. Surprisingly, there was only one guy with a lightsaber in the theater. I agree with others in that this movie is definitely the best of the three prequels (it still can't touch Empire, though). A few thoughts (minor SPOILERS):


-Nice to see R2D2 kick so much ass.
-I thought that Anakin's crossover to the Dark Side to be a bit too quick. He seemed to put as much thought into that monumental choice as deciding between soup and salad. My friend's theory is that once Anakin sliced off Mace Windu's hand he realized that there was no turning back. Eh, I guess I can buy that.
-George Lucas definitely has a fetish for cutting off appendages. I wonder if that's how he gets his jollies.
-So that's why it happens: Anakin becomes evil for a fine piece of tail.
-My favorite part? Three words: James. Earl. Jones.

Kate - I also thought that about the Vader suit. At least get the guy cleaned up a little! Thanks - now I can't get the picture of Vader taking out Pet Smart out of my mind.

shamrock - I'll never let it go because it is just that damn funny.

spydrz - you know spelling was never his strong point. that'd be asking for porn on AOL.

Conspicuously missing from the "favorite moments" list: "Hold me, Anakin. Hold me like you did by the lake on Naboo."

I think I heard Shakespeare screaming in agony off in the distance.

Dialogue aside, I LOVED the movie. Already saw it twice :)

That line was bad, but this exchange was groan inducing:

"You're so beautiful."
"It's only because I'm so in love."
"No - it's because I'm in love with you."
"So love has blinded you."

Excellent Post. You are right on with the R2D2 stuff. Though I hated that Padme died of a broken heart. Kind of cheesy. Even a Child Birth death would have been better. Keep up the good work.

At least Neo didn't come in and bring her back to life. Thanks for compliment.
