OR: NOOOOOOOO

Hey, the 3rd (and last of 6) Star Wars movie was actually pretty good. It had some glaringly dumb moments, but by and large it managed to get the job done.

And it's 3:00 in the morning, so that's all I got. I'll update this entry to point to Wes's 6 page review, once he gets around to writing it.

UPDATE: True to form, Wes comes through. I agree with almost everything he has to say, except that 1) I didn't notice the comedy near the beginning as being particularly out of place or over the top, 2) I'm willing to cut Natalie Portman some slack. She was basically turned into a weak, pitiful mouse in this movie, when initially she was a strong-willed Queen (and did a much better job at it), and 3) I rather liked Grievous.

There is something terrifying about your eyes in that picture.

I also liked Grievous.

That's a nice hat, Roy. Is that yours?

Also I wish they hadn't spoiled the extra arms for Greivous, although

a) apparently this was in the recent cartoons?

and

b) the Seattle team Griptonite that we visited did all the Star Wars TV Games so I know far too much of the plot already. :^(

Yeah, it's my hat. It's Irish!

a) Yeah, they showed the cartoons before the movie at the drafthouse, and we got to see the 4-armed splendor.

Games for the just recently announced Star Wars TV show(s), or games based on the clone wars cartoons?

I think a better question would have been "Griptonite? They're seriously called Griptonite? AGHHHHHHHHH!".

Doing games for both trilogies. "Classic" trilogy stuff is being finished now.

Maybe I'm becoming really simple in my old age, but those games actually look like a lot of fun. I may have to pick up the Star Wars one if it's priced reasonably enough.

They're a little slow, as they're marketed to a slightly younger crowd.

If you get one, get the classic one and maybe the keys (cartridges).

I'm doing a key for a comic book line.
