haha. you thought i was gunna review phantom menace. but ha. i haven't seen it yet. so i decided to fuck with you all and review this one instead.so it's not a movie masterpiece. the dialog is so bad it's funny, the acting is at times just horrible, but you know what? no one cares.
the story is awesome. admit it. light sabers are cool. you know you want one.
it's a hero's journey, a quest, an adventure, and c'mon. space is cool. a coming of age tale, plus harrison ford. mmmm han...
so i like sci fi. yeah, i'm a dork. whatever. and the thing about star wars that no one can deny is it's a legend, and it changed sci fi forever. and i think, in a good way. it was much more accessable than other sci fi. its basis was a recognazable story. the comparisons to a western are valid, but i see its basis much mroe clearly in greek storytelling that westerns were also based on.
the recent backlash against star wars is just silly. critics can point out things wrong with it as much as they want. and it won't change a damned thing for the fans. so why bother? yes, the dialog might be lame, but no one cares. the stroy rules.in the end, lightsabers are cool. the end.
