It is true. The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded. For I find that all the warning buzzers have mysteriously been silenced. I am in total acceptance of the fact that–no matter what–Revenge of the Sith will be the Best. Movie. Ever.
So, prepare yourselves. Star Wars fanboy crap is about to come gushing forth from the confines of this here blog.
First up, take a second to peruse the Star Warsie goodness at starwars.com. I know. I know. You’ve seen the trailer. You distrust the trailers. You’ve been burned before. Well, just pretend you haven’t seen the last two movies. Pretend that this is the one that answers all of the questions and leads you into the real Star Wars. Once you give in to the Dark Side, you will understand. Search your feelings. You know it to be true.
The mad praise of some hack who got a special early peek at the movie because he happens to be a bigshot director might not be a valid reason to get excited. Unless that hack is Kevin Smith. If you have the time (and can stand pure geekery in its raw form), read the transcript of an interview with Smith and Shaun of the Dead’s Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright.
Don’t worry about the spoilers, either. I’ve read a bazillion things about this movie, and one thing that strikes me is how you cannot spoil it. You can read about the final showdown between Obi Wan and Anakin Skywalker, but until you see it…
Speaking of Vader… one of the things that got me off on this kick today was reading the bloggy ramblings of the Darth one himself in The Darth Side: Memoirs of a Monster.
Yes, I’ve been hooked. Again. Once more, they want me to invest more of my soul into a universe that sprang from a cheesey story in a 30-year-old movie. And I will do it willingly and lovingly.
Don’t underestimate the Force.
