Edison and I went to see Star Wars Episode II Attack of the Clones last night (many other people happenned to show up and join us, most unexpectedly). We’re going to work on a review and try to have it up as soon as possible. Hopefully, worst possible case, we’ll do it during Sunday night TV and you’ll see it late Sunday night/early Monday morning.
Still, for those of you trying to decide whether to see it this weekend, the critics aren’t far off; if you are a big Star Wars fan, this is a must-see movie. If you are even a little bit of a fan (ie: have seen all four other movies, maybe a couple of times each, over the last 25 years, and liked at least 2 of them), this movie is worth seeing in a theatre, preferably with an excited crowd (ie: opening weekend crowd). If you have never heard of Star Wars before, or have only learned of its existence because of the hype surrounding this movie, or even Episode I, you may find yourself confused/bored/uninterested in the first 90 minutes or so of this movie, though even you will likely enjoy all the excitement/battles in the last 45 minutes. Finally, if you loathe Star Wars with a vehemence that could freeze the three suns of Tatooine or melt the ice on Hoth (for instance), then you’ve probably already seen this movie so you could tear it apart and posted your own little “review” online by now.
Okay. I’ll try not to repeat myself too much when discussing the film with Edison later, but … I haven’t asked him what he thought yet.
