Episode III

Sarah and I went with a group this past Saturday to The Cinerama to see Episode III. It was somewhat satisfying, somewhat disappointing, both feelings completely not surprising.

There is little that I could add to the dearth of reviewing and analysis that has gone on over the past month, so I won't attempt to say something original at this point about the movie. But I will create a word that has never been spoken, since I'm feeling the need to be original: jarboglinate. I am attempting to define this word, so please comment if you have a definition.

But here's the real question: What if we were only given Episode III as a prequel to the original Star Wars Trilogy? Barring the need to cover the obvious gaps in the story that Episodes I and II fill in for us, how would we compare Episode III to the other 3 films? I currently feel that Episode III is so satisfying largely in part to its predecessors. Would I like it if my expectations weren't so low to begin with? Please post your comments!

Did you mean to copy him, or was this just sheer coincidence!?

By George, I totally forgot that! I was thinking of "Garden State" when Natalie Portman's character does a little dance and makes a noise that no one has ever done before when she's feeling down (I just watched it again earlier this week)... but I think the SNL thing is much better!
