On Friday a bunch of people from work went to see the latest, and hopefully last, Lucas epic. I don’t think I can add all that much to the volumes that have already been written about how bad it is, so I’ll settle for just a few quick points:

  • There was way too much copying from Lord of the Rings, from Saruman/Dooku and the droid who goes “gollum” to the orcs guarding the door at the separatist stronghold and the extended Mount Doom scene at the end.
  • Lucas has an ear for dialog the way Godzilla had an eye for Japanese architecture.
  • I want a T-shirt with an annoyed-looking Yoda saying “On, bring it.”
