For more than a week now I was trying to find time to go to the movies for “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith“. Today was my last chances to go see it on the big screen so I asked Olga if she will manage alone with Maxim. She replied something along the lines: “If I will ever be devorcing you and there will be an argument about with whom Maxim will live, I’ll have a good statement on my side. I’ll tell the judge that once, for example, he left me alone with the three month old baby and went to see Star Wars.” Of course, depending on the judge, this argument can have a different outcome.

“Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith” wasn’t a disappointment. But it wasn’t something special either. By now, everyone understood that the last three parts of Star Wars series are very different fromt the first three parts. “Modern” Star Wars have lots and lots of computer graphics and special effects. Much more than the original parts. But they are not as fun to watch, mainly because of slower pace, more romantic crap, and terrible acting.
“Revenge of the Sith” continued the trend of the “modern” Star Wars. It was too long, too slow, and too boring. Many special effects weren’t adding much to the movie. Some were even annoying to the eyes.
Somehow I’m glad that the saga ended finally and that I won’t have to spend any more time on it. (Except maybe for rewatching the old three parts.) I am not even disappointed with totally predictable ending. Who cares, right?
Anyway, if you’ve seen all the other parts, than take your time and go to the movies. Don’t watch it at home on TV screen – it will be close to unbearable and you’ll hate it. If you haven’t seen other parts, than don’t bother – wait for another movie to come to your local screens.
