George Lucas has been inviting certain directors to the ranch to view the newest Star Wars in beautiful digital. Evidently Kevin Smith (Chasing Amy, Dogma) made the cut. WARNING, this link contains both spoilers and some PG-13 language. If you want to skip it you should take away the fact that Kevin Smith highly digs the highly anticipated Revenge of the Sith. And he thinks you should too.
I can’t go without posting a clip of the review so I snagged the first paragraph, and even it has some spoilers so if spoilers aren’t your thing turn your monitor off:
“Revenge of the Sith” is, quite simply, fucking awesome. This is the “Star Wars” prequel the haters have been bitching for since “Menace” came out, and if they don’t cop to that when they finally see it, they’re lying. As dark as “Empire” was, this movie goes a thousand times darker – from the triggering of Order 66 (which has all the Shock Troopers turning on the Jedi Knights they’ve been fighting beside throughout the Clone Wars and gunning them down), to the jaw-dropping Anakin/Obi Wan fight on Mustafar (where – after cutting his legs and arm off, Ben leaves Skywalker burning alive on the shores of a lava river, with Anakin spitting venomous sentiments at his departing mentor), this flick is so satisfyingly tragic, you’ll think you’re watching “Othello” or “Hamlet”.
