One long and torturous week after opening, I finally got to see Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
I’m sure everyone’s already up to their ears in reviews, so to keep things brief I thought it was fabulous, but was expecting a little bit more. The action was incredible, but it wasn’t enough to take the ‘best movie’ title from Episode V. Random commentary and possibly (look at me, I’m a warning!) spoilers ahead.
R2-D2 has been my favourite character since I was a kid. Hurray for the spunky little droid and all the scenes they gave him! I was happy to finally learn whether he does or does not get his memory wiped. R2 knows…
Badass Windu is just the coolest Jedi ever. It was incredible to see him channelling/reflecting Sidious’s Force lightning. But couldn’t Kit Fisto have been given a more noble death? I know he wasn’t a central character, but still!
I love Wookies! Yoda riding a Wookie, now that’s too adorable.
All the battles and fights were terrific. Well orchestrated with incredible graphics. Don’t you want a giant lizard now? I want a giant lizard now.
There’s been a lot of disappointed over Hayden Christensen’s portrayal of Anakin, and some of his deliveries were unintentionally hilarious. But really, how many young actors can you think of who wouldn’t sound ridiculous spewing out how “together we can rule this galaxy!”
I’ve seen a lot of rave reviews and a few that thought it was absolutely horrible, to me it was somewhere in between. 7/10 would do. I left the cinema thinking it was mind-blowing, but a few hours later I feel like putting on some Star Trek instead.
On a different note, I tried playing the demo of Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. Hah, I officially proclaim myself to be hopeless at fighting games! I um… blew up Chewbacca.
