Played hooky for a few hours today and went to see Star Wars III. I completely enjoyed it. While some reviewers said it lacked deep dialog, all I can say is that George Lucus tells the best story visually. I was surprised by the reason Anikin turned to the Dark Side as I thought it was going to be something to do with his mom. The spectacular special effects exceeded my expectations (watch for the pilots floating in space after their ship was destroyed in battle). Several moments where the crowd broke out in laughter, but the darkness of the movie and several intense scenes would make me think twice about bringing a young child to see it. Definitely think twice if your child is under 10.

The high schooler I was sitting next to at the 3:00pm showing was on his second viewing and was returning for his third view after the Pistons win tonight (bring on the Heat ). If there was ever a question that Lucas was going to set opening day records, this guy was ready to contribute to the possibility.

I probably will go see it again when the crowds disperse later in June.

    I agree, Rick. Saw the movie yesterday (after waiting 28 years for THIS film), and I must say it met all of my expectations.

    I don’t care as much for the tremendous amount of CGI in the last three films though. Too much activity going on around the characters for my feeble brain to process.

    That said, you are 100% correct about Lucas’ strength in telling stories visually.
