A long time ago......

OK - I'm giving in. Yep - I'm off to see Star Wars: Episode III today. I've mentioned before how not excited I am to see this film. Star Wars was never a big deal for me - even as a child. I think I was probably born just a year too late to get caught up in all the hype surrounding it, and I much preferred the Incredible Hulk and Spiderman to such far fetched, ridiculous stories about aliens and space ships... plus C-3PO was annoying. But, like it or not, Star Wars has an important place in the fabric of pop culture and because it's filled with all sorts of special effects and what not, I figure the theatre is the best place to see it. I also watched Episode II last night to give myself a refresher course. Surprisingly, it wasn't half-bad. When I first saw it years ago I remember being confused... all this talk about Galactic Senate's and Trade federations, blah blah blah... the last thing I wanted to see was a hard to follow political film. Well... it was political yes, but I must have been half asleep at the time because it wasn't particularly hard to follow. Anyway - a decent, if slow paced story which leaves me in good stead for Episode III today. Stay tuned. I'll let you know what I think.
