DVD Review: Star Wars-Episode 3-Revenge of The Sith

Well, I may be the only one out there, but I'm kinda glad this series is over with for now. This latest from George Lucas' money making machine is beautiful to look at, but is as hollow as a gourd. The acting is unbearably bad, by some of the best in Hollywood don't forget, and the story isn't much better. But there's never been a better looking or sounding DVD. This thing rings true through the surround sound and the visuals are amazing. If only Lucas could take the whole human element out of his films and just use his Lucasarts team to make CG movies, then they'd be great. This is the part of the series that ties the new trilogy in with the old, the creation of Darth Vader. The fact that we already know who lives, because of the original Star Wars, takes so much away from this movie. We know Anakin doesn't kill Kenobi, we know Padma has twins and dies in childbirth, this movie doesn't tell us anything we didn't already know. I don't know, I wasn't impressed, other than by the sound and the effects. I'll give it *** out of *****, just for technical mastery if anything else. And it's a great film to show off your surround system.
