Finally watched Star Wars III the day after it’s released in theatres. Pretty good film, as it prepares the audience for the next trilogy. I tell you, when you watch the movie, you just can’t wait to watch Part IV, V and VI again.
Yoda really kicks ass! Natalie Portman was a bit cheesy in the film, but yeah, Luke and Leia needed a mom. Her role wasn’t too major anyway in the first place.
The movie was a bit too constructed in the first place, but it did tell a decent story at least. Too much elaborate sets and special effects. Too much CGI.Nothing really seemed that real, especially the city scenes.
I especially like the twist on the story which shows how the Galactic Empire was created and how the jedi knights began living in exile. The ingenuity of it all — now, THAT was cool.
And of course, after you watch Star Wars, you’d have to discuss it. So my friends and I discussed Star Wars and its intricacies till 1:30AM.
Good thing today’s a Saturday. Can sleep later tomorrow.
