If you have not yet seen star wars episode III and don’t want to know anything bout it then do not read this post!
I decided to surprise josh and get us tickets to go see star wars Thursday night. He was surprised and we were almost late. We went in and found pretty good seats. Josh was really excited. I on the other hand was there mostly for him. When the movie was over I felt betrayed and disgusted. Had I been able to contact Mr. Lucas I would have had some very colorful things to say to him. Here is my review and some of my thoughts, well, mostly my thoughts.
I thought the movie sucked! I am not sure how to adequately describe my disgust. As usual the writing was beyond cheesy. IT was by far the worst script I have heard for a serious movie. If it was meant to be a comedy then it was pretty good (space balls was better). He even had yoda saying stupid stuff. He was the only character you could rely on in the other movies to not be cheesy. I felt like Lucas had written the whole thing in about three hours max and that he was sitting in his huge house laughing at all the stupid people for running to go see it.
It was way too graphic. I think I could have understood just how evil Darth Vader is without the child slaying scene. I also think I could have imagined Vader being in fire and all his skin melting off without actually seeing it.
The thing that ultimately turned him was week.
I will say one good thing about his movie and let me stress that it is just one good thing. The special effects. They were the best I have ever seen in a movie. Maybe that is because Lucas finally let someone else do them.
The main blunder Lucas made was a story line error. I mean how hard is it to remember what you freaking right!!!! Let’s flash forward or backward or whatever to episode six when Luke and Leia were in the ewok village and Luke tells her who their dad is. Everyone remember? Luke begins by asking her what she remembers of her mother; here is the catch, her real mother. Anyone remember what she said? She said she only has a few memories, mostly feeling because she died when Leia was very young. She goes on to say that she always seemed sad but that she was very kind. My question is this. How in the freaking world does padmea die giving birth then!!!!! She knew the people who raised her weren’t her real parents. If she didn’t why would Luke say your real mother? Josh thinks that since Leia is strong in the force that she can remember her as a newborn. That doesn’t work for two reasons. One, padmea dies right after they come out and she names them. Two, Luke tells Leia that he has no memories of his mother and he came out first so if either of them had memories from then it would be him. WHAT THE HECK!!!! How in the world does she die then!!!! Lucas totally changed a story line he already wrote and put in the last movie.
I think the main reason this bugs me so much is because they aren’t good movies. You like these movies because they remind you of your childhood. They were good when you were a kid. By changing a story line he has no made the movies incoherent. They can’t remind me of my childhood anymore because they don’t go together. To me there is going to be star wars the trilogy and then those crappy prequels some guy tried to make. How did this happen? I am so angry that this post doesn’t even begin to describe what I really think. Just ask josh. He new that I was upset and as soon as the movie was over I turned to him and he said ”Just let me enjoy it for a second ok?” which I did. Then I went off for a couple hours and he graciously listened. I am so upset about his movie hat when josh mentioned buying kotor2 I said no because I didn’t want Lucas getting anymore on of my money. For the record I played kotor for over 32 hours so my saying no to kotor2 is a big deal.
This is all I can think of right now. I just needed to get some of this off my chest. I never want to see that movie again.
