Star Wars – ROTS (***)

I really liked this movie. I am sure that a lot of people are overanalyzing the movie to pieces, but I honestly believe this was the best movie in the prequel trilogy. The special effects were pretty good, the story picked up a bit in terms of acting, and it also stayed true to the story line. I like the fact that Lucas did not try to make things more complex but showed the progression of the characters towards what they become in the next movie.

What better way to end the prequels than to set it up for the next chapter without some strange attempt at an evil twist? Some say that he had to fit everything into the story, but in reality he could have done something different or centered the movies on other characters. The StarWars universe is that, a universe, and he had endless possibilities.

My only disappointment was the killing of the Jedi. I know that they were betrayed, but Jedi’s rock, I would have liked to see them fall after tearing half of the clones that were attacking them apart. The movie was already long but I would have put aside the awkward love scenes for more Jedi butt kicking.

My all time favorite moments in the movie came thanks to R2D2. He rocked the movie not just providing comic relief but seriously kicking butt. I cracked up when he comes into the room as in we are saved, but then you find out that he was just being chased. That was hilarious.

The saddest moments in the movie were thanks to Darth Vader. It was sad for me to see that he chose that path; it was a nice build up to what he becomes. I do not fault the actors for the script, and even though this was a lot better than the past 2 prequels, it was still not awesome.

I say go see it if you have not already. You might know exactly what is going to happen, but hey everyone also knew the Titanic was going to sink. So go see Yoda kick some butt.

Forwarding email messages

Thank God it did not happen to me, but recently someone got an e-mail they wrote forwarded to a whole bunch of other people. This has happened to me, but for the most part I am careful about what I write in e-mail or who I send it to. In the professional world it can happen quite often. You send an e-mail to someone and all of a sudden everyone in the company has it, or worse you accidently hit a mailing list instead of a single recipient.

Take this as a PSA, be careful about what you write when you e-mail, you never know where it will some day end up. :)

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (*)

If you are a fan of the books or the animated series stop reading now. First, don’t panic. That is probably the only thing that I would say is cool about the movie. Why because I did not know anything about the book or history of it when I walked into the multiplex and chose this torture over the Interpreter. It was a big mistake to see this movie, I want my money and my time back. Do we have normality yet?

The story is interesting and could have been better portrayed by a cartoon, which I hear it already was. They should have left it there. I can basically ruin the movie for you in less than 5 minutes so here we go. Your house is going to be destroyed, but who cares, your planet is about to be destroyed. Your best friend happens to be an alien and he is going to save your tail, but all he does is keep getting you into deeper messes than you though possible. Ah the love part too, how could I forget, a girl you fall in love with ends up leaving with a dude that would have better represented by Fabio. The tale continues when you happened to be picked up by your dream girl and Fabio. It gets better; they are looking for the answer to existence, the mice in our planet are also looking to find it and they somehow are the ultimate villains. Did I mention there are dolphins too? If by this point you are not confused or irritated, then go ahead and watch the movie you are obviously a fan.

I say stay away from it if you can, I am sure a cable channel will eventually play it and you can get a chuckle or two from it. If you are a fan, I do not think less of you, just don’t try to explain it to me. The idea slapping was kind of humorous.
