Saw "Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith" this morning (gotta love Microsoft morale events!). I liked it a lot and will reiterate what everyone else has said: It’s better than the last two but not better than the first two. Or better than the first two but not better than four and five. You know what I mean.
My only negative comments about the movie are that I think the guy that plays Annakin is irritating and a bad actor (I found it hard to believe it when he turned to the dark side), some of the dialogue was cheesy, and that there were no strong female characters. One of the things I always liked about Star Wars were the wisecracking Leah and Han Solo and how strong of a character Leah was. Who doesn’t love chicks with guns? This movie was completely devoid of them. Tragedy!
One thing I also noticed was that in this age of digital movie making the visuals look beautiful and pretty realistic but the movements seem wrong. They need to spend more time studying physics – many times things were moving too slow or too fast (like Yoda!) and it just seemed artificial to the point of being unintentionally comical.
What I loved about it was how it tied up loose ends that were left loose almost 30 years ago. We’ll never have another experience like this – that was truly unique. There were a lot of nods to the original Star Wars and so many things were explained. I recommend seeing Sith first, then seeing Star Wars, and then seeing Sith again. Sith will be two completely different movies, and Star Wars will be different too now that you know more of the back story.
Go see it, even though it doesn’t have chicks with guns.
