Look, Turtleface - Star Wars!
It looks like the tide has turned. First, I saw the full preview for the movie, which only made it look cooler. Then I saw an article about how subversive it was - with Evil Anakin saying "You're either with us or you're against it." It had a quote from George Lucas saying "Of course it's not about the present day, back when I wrote the plot, we were friends with Saddam and selling him weapons to use against Iran." Zing.
Then I saw the first actual review, from the New York Times. The Grey Lady seems to be far more accurate with film reviews than, say, weapons of mass destruction reporting, and it raved about ep3.
The thing is, though, if this movie is that good, then how could the other two have sucked SO HARD?
