Well It isn’t King Lear

In a nutshell – ROTS is the best of the three prequel trilogy films. But then again Plan 9 From Outer Space is better than any of the prequel films. Two things stood out to me about this movie. The first is that Lucas seemed to be very rushed in his storytelling. The second was …

While not as spectacularly dreadful as Episodes I and II this is certainly no ‘The Empire Strikes Back’

The culmination of decades of work for writer-director George Lucas, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith completes the epic space-opera sextet which burst onto our screens in 1977, and brings the tragic story of Jedi knight Anakin Skywalker and his transformation into the iconic villain Darth Vader to a close. The film opens …

This one is actually great!

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith Despite the last dying hopes of my inner ten-year-old, the final chapter in the Star Wars saga proved to be an even larger disappointment than my adult mind had realistically expected.

Thank you Mr Lucas for utterly destroying “Star Wars”

It is always sad to watch potential die. This film, this story had it all. It could have been the greatest of them all. The heartbreaking tragedy of the man who gave up his name Anakin Skywalker to become Darth Vader. Instead we were given, crap. This is why: (contains spoilers) The first problem is …

All I can say is that Lucas has finally redeemed himself!

Little could Mark Hamil have known when he uttered these words in A New Hope that he was making a profound prediction of the future of the Star Wars movies. Did he also foresee the rise of an actor who would make him look like Laurence Olivier? As a Star Wars fan I so wanted …
