Star Wars: The Day After

All right, so most of us were so consumed yesterday with our mad Demo Ball skills that we didn't have much time to chat about the movie. What did everyone think? I'll get us started with a review from the Post-Dispatch by Joe Williams. Now I'm not a big fan of Williams's, but I think it's hard to disagree with his comments.

Also, from the WSJ review today:
  • "Lucas goes to the dull side"
  • "Still, all of the visual inventions in all of the worlds of that far-off galaxy can't hide the clumsiness of the film's stab at profundity. "My powers have doubled since the last time we met," Anakin boasts to an adversary, but Mr. Christensen's acting powers have not."
I'm not sure whom they're talking about, but could it be that they thought Peter Frampton was in reality Hayden Christensen, the wooden actor who played Anakin in Episode II?

Personally, I think having four arms for Demo Ball scoops would be cool!

Of course, that would mean I'd miss four times as many shots. But oh, too dream.
