Star Wars

Jen and I saw the new Star Wars movie this afternoon. George still can't write dialog to save his butt but my god, does he know how to think up cool toys... The sets, the architecture of the buildings, the gadgets were awesome. It was also interesting to see the advancements in CG - nothing flashy but very very subtle. Hair used to be very difficult to get right and now Yoda's is now about as photo-realistic as it can get. It was nice to finally have Palpatine (Scottish actor Ian McDiarmid) finally get to play the role with some depth. Overall definitely two thumbs up! The theater had a trailer for the Chronicles of Narnia which also looked really good if they follow the book with some fidelity. Posted by DaveH at May 23, 2005 1:10 AM
