24 May, 2002: The Force is strong in this one, but the dialogue is pretty weak

[ Home page | Web log ]

I went to see the new Star Wars movie last night. It was OK, I suppose, if you ignore the cringe-worthy dialogue. The special effects were pretty, too, though not quite seamless.

One thing that's always bothered me about those films is that the extremely technologically advanced people long ago in a galaxy far away have no weapons between little LASER guns which sting a bit and swords which might take your arm off, and enormous planet-destroying death rays. Surely there's a gap in the market there somewhere....
