I'm probably going to go see Revenge of the Sith in the theater. I know I'll be dissapointed. The last two were so incredibly bad that I don't see how anybody ever thought George Lucas could direct a movie. For Jar Jar alone, someone should have had the fortitude to say, "George, step away from the camera. Slowly. No sudden moves..."
But I'll go see ROTS anyway. Craptacular though it will be. Yeah, I know the CGI will kick ass, but sitting through another scene of Hayden and Natalie "emoting" will really make the gag reflex kick in big time. Plus, the scene I really want to see won't be in it. You know, the one when someone finally shoves a thermite grenade up Jar Jar's wazzoo and yells, "Fire in the hole!" Not gonna happen. Oh, well.
JCoke over at Daily Pundit does a great job saying what I'm trying to say. Check it out. It's a wonderful summary as to why George Lucas screwed it all up big time and why Neal Stephenson didn't. Of course, JCoke does not go into why Jar Jar should die a ghastly death, but I digress...
