Episode III

Saw Episode III tonight. We had a dozen people show up, yay! I liked the movie. There was some clunky acting and awful dialogue (mostly near the beginning, mostly centering on Anakin & Padme), but the pretty pretty effects and settings were all over the movie, and all the fight scenes were action-riffic and fun to watch, and it was a Star Wars movie.

The last chunk of the movie was all about symmetry and echoes and reflections of other bits elsewhere, which I thought was pretty neat (if cheesy in spots). The movie sort of felt a little bit compressed -- like there were reactions and developments that would have felt more natural if they could have unfolded over a minute or two of screentime, rather than 20 seconds, but that would have made the movie far, far too long.

Oh, and Ewan MacGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi is freakin' HAWT. (My boyfriends are gonna hassle me for saying it, but he is.)
