Star Wars

Hopefully going to see Star Wars episode 3 on Wednesday. Midnight showing baby! Joe will let me know if it's on or not. If this town lames out and only goes for regular showtimes....Well I'd rather be on Naboo getting sexually harassed by Jar-Jar.

I have a lot of hope for this one. I think that Lucas actually had 80% of this one thought up when he made A New Hope. You know the shit the other geeks have been going on about for ages, Obi-Wan and Vader scrapping it out, the emperor taking over the galaxy, that kind of stuff. I just think that was all he had. The shit from Phantom Menace? He had to stretch it out. I actually think that he started with the idea from 3 and had to work backwards until he had reached episode 1. If A New Hope had been numbered 3 instead of 4, I think we would have had two good movies instead of one good (Sith, hopefully), one so-so and that steaming piece of waste called Episode 1

I'll let you know how it turned out.
