Gripe to Star Wars Fans

Well, I want to take a minute to scold Star Wars fans. Shame on you. I cannot tell you how many times I have heard complaints about the acting in Episode 3. Um, did we see the same movie? There was one point where Padme was acting super sitzy "Let's go back to Naboo Ani..." but other than that, I don't know what fans are complaining about. And let me tell you, I am very picky about movies. I am constantly picking them apart and criticizing the acting. The one complaint that got me the most was that George Lucas did a poor job of depicting the emotional aspects Anakin went through? Again, I say, were we watching the same movie? OMG, Hayden Christensen was phenomenal. His eyes and facial expressions throughout tell the story of the turmoil alone. Wow. I was a fan of Hayden's before, but this sealed it. (If you haven't seen Life As A House- do it!!) And every once in a while he would get the identical expression on his face that Luke Skywalker would have once in a while. Lucas could not have done a better job casting Hayden. Amazing. And if you are reading this blog and have not seen Episode 3: first of all, do I know you? And second of all, what rock have you been hiding under? Go see it and enjoy it, and then curl up and watch episodes 4,5,and 6. They are totally different now- in a much better way.

the only part of the movie i didn't like was the actual conversion to the dark side...and that was the writers' fault. so they get a big 'you suck' for that. okay, love you.
