Star Wars Love

The new Star Wars is a sweet movie. I am not disappointed. The movie is about villains. We get some good villains, some poor villains, and some spectacular villains. General Grievous was cool to a point, but he did not capture my heart and imagination in much the same way that Darth Maul failed. Simply not enough screen time to develop an interesting character. A cough and a limp does not make a well rounded character. The villain that steals this show is Palpatine. So wonderfully evil. Mixing truth with careful lies and telling others exactly what they should hear to further his own ends. And Darth Vader of course. Every bit of trachea crushing badness that we have come to expect. I intend to enjoy this episode again and again in order to cherish some high quality villains.

As for my expectations.

No bottomless pit. (Boo, we want a pit!)

No annoying character. Well, General Grievous was teetering on the brink of annoying, but not quite enough screen time. Anakin has matured from his nuisance self. C-3P0 was hardly ever seen. Jar-Jar had no lines. I think we were spared the wrath of annoying in this go about.

A new monster with bad monster makeup. Yup. Plenty. My favorite (least favorite) was the badly CGI'd creature that Obi-Wan rides into battle against Grievous.

A new tool for R2D2. The little guy does not get so much a new tool as he does a new degree of dexterity. The mighty mini droid can be found jumping, dodging and practically doing kung-fu against an assortment of battle droids.

Watch the Cartoon Network Star Wars Clone Wars, in total its about 2.5 hours, and it realy goes into grevius alot, explaining how he is injured during the beggining of the 'Battel of Corusant'

I personaly enjoyed the cartoon network series more then Epi. I and II
