A New Hope?

If you are familar with the work of director Kevin Smith (known for “alternative” movies such as Clerks, Chasing Amy, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back), you will understand that the guy is a huge fan of the Star Wars franchise (at least the original three movies). He was probably, like most of us, disappointed with the last two efforts. But here’s what he has to say about the latest instalment, Revenge of the Sith:

Revenge of the Sith” is, quite simply, f****** awesome. This is the “Star Wars” prequel the haters have been bitching for since “Menace” came out, and if they don’t cop to that when they finally see it, they’re lying. As dark as “Empire” was, this movie goes a thousand times darker….this flick is so satisfyingly tragic, you’ll think you’re watching “Othello” or “Hamlet”.

—-

Look, this is a movie I was genetically predisposed to love…I was sad to see the flick end, but happy to know it’s not the end of the “Star Wars” universe entirely (I’ve read stuff about a TV show…).

 

“Sith” doesn’t happen; “Sith” rules.

Wow. That’s quite an endorsement. Could there be reason for us Star Wars fans to get excited once again, after the last few years of disappointment?
