I break my vow of laziness

Hi. Here's a new post for the people. I just saw Star Wars:Revenge of the Sith and I liked it. I agree with the critics who say that this film brings some respect back to the franchise, especially the Prequel part of it. The acting this time around was improved from all parties involved, with the effort from Ian McDiarmid standing out above the rest. His Palpatine was perfect in corrupting Anakin's mind. I won't schpiel to much here as you'll all see it anyway. Briefly I'll say that the action sequences are awesome. The Anakin/Obi-Wan duel is intense and the meaning is not outshined by the CGI(though since it takes place on a volcanic planet, there is plenty of CGI present). They save the major CGI fireworks for the Yoda/Palps fight, which is a fun affair with good banter between the two. My complaints about the film are very few currently. I wished there was a faster pace in the begginning and that the middle ground dialogue was less boring. And of course, there is Lucas dialogue abound and you always have to grin and bear it. Republicans might not like Lucas after this film. That stuff being said, I liked this movie a lot, you get the connection you want at the end. That is all. Go Mets.
