Background: I loved the originals, and I enjoyed the first two recent releases almost more than the originals. Yeah, I had the same reaction to some of the cutsie bits Lucas added (like JarJar binks). However, I think I like the Revenge of the Sith even more than the other two! It’s not over the top and I don’t think Lucas did the “let’s use technology WAY too much” in this one.
The music, as in the previous two *new* movies, was AWESOME. So far, the score to moves that kick a$$ (not “oh that’s beautiful” or “the music was just so classic”… I’m talking rockin stuff that just blows your mind) are the three latest Star Wars, the entire Matrix trilogy, and Man on Fire (in no particular order).
If you haven’t seen it, and you’re a Star Wars fan, go see it (yeah, who’s a fan who has written this off?).
