Hello

Well, I got invited to join this blog here, and so I did. There are a few things I could talk about (RPG stuff comes to mind) but, in the end, there's really only one topic. Sith! Sith! Sith!

Well, saw the movie three times this weekend. I liked it so much that I'm starting to think the others being bad was a conspiracy to make you especially like the third one, as the fading embers of your faith in Lucas and hope for good movies was ignited into a bonfire of happiness at how fun this flick was.

I mean, I don't want to ruin anything, but Star Wars is cutting edge again! The Jedi, particularly a Darth named Siddious, fight like, I don't know, Jedis on crack or something. They flip and bounce from walls and corkscrew into each other and you get POV shots, lighted-by-lightsaber shots, everything but slow-mo and bullet cam, which is a good thing in this case.

Also, the big fight at the beginning is awesome, and a nice reference to British Naval battles, what with everyone manning the guns, and firing broadsides.

So, I'm trying to keep it vague for the slackers out there, but seeing this movie is a good thing.
