i took my son to the new star wars movie last night. it was entertaining. yes, there were some lines that you could intrepret to be anti-bush, but i don't think it was intentional. i think george lucas, whatever his political philosophy, wisely left politics out of this film. it was just entertainment, which is all that it was intended to be. i enjoyed the movie, the special effects were great, the dialoque corny in many places, but all in all, i liked it. is it worthy of an academy award? not by the standards set by the lord of the rings: return of the king, but i won't say the special effects shouldn't win a nod. best thing about it in my opinion is: it doesn't require a lot of thinking. it is a wonderful fantasy escape. it certainly kept me from finishing the dishes.
