found drama

get oblique


by Rob Friesel

I’ve fallen victim to the Revenge of the Sith hype– partly to blame is the Chikin Sandowichi post referencing the l33t parody trailer (funniest thing I’ve seen since “Mortor”). I guess it’s not the worst thing ever, I just find myself with lowered expectations of Lucas. Special effects are nice but can I at least get a side of decent dialog?

I suppose I’ll echo so much other sentiment in that I’m looking for some closure on it. I’ve made a bargain with my youngest brother to go see it. Mostly to keep A out of harm’s way. Suffering through …Clones was more than enough and it really is a testament to our relationship that she didn’t leave me on the spot. Then again, I didn’t exactly leave the theater feeling like I’d gotten my $9’s worth either.

That being said, the trailers I’ve seen for Sith so far have my interest piqued. I readily recognize that I had the same pique when viewing the Clones trailers as well and so I’m not deluding myself into thinking it will be “good” or even “better”. I think I just want to see Hayden Christensen get his ass kicked into fiery near-death by Ewan McGregor.
