Re: anyone going to the midnight star wars showing?
You know, I recently realized that I really don't like Star Wars as much as most other people seem to. I liked Episode 4 well enough, and Episode 5 and 6 were ok, though I didn't like them as much for some reason. Episode 1 I actually liked, minus the fact that the acting is terrible (even from the good actors). By the time Anakin said "Yippee" for the third time I was starting to worry about George Lucas' mental stability. Episode 2 was ok, though I hated the fact that everything was CG and fake looking. The cool thing about the originals, and even most of Episode 1 was that the sets looked like real places and felt real, in Episode 2 everything seemed really fake, and you could tell the actors were in front of a blue-screen, which just killed it for me.
I did however read an excellent review of the 3rd movie written by Kevin Smith (yes, Silent Bob) who seemed to share my opinions of the other two recent movies, but loved Episode 3. There were some spoilers I won't share here at the moment, but needless to say some of my complaints about Episode 2 are dealt with in Episode 3.
