Everyone's gone & Episode III thoughts

Posted: May 29, 2005 in General, Movies/TV/Music

Everyone is gone this weekend. Cara’s down in Florida this week at a Veterinary conference, Brian left mid-week to go to “hippy camp” up in Mass. Justin, John, Matt and Ben who are hiking in Peru. I have to admit a little jealousy, but there was really no realistic way that I could have taken the trip. If not for the fact that I’m already taking a great deal of time off from work for the wedding, then for the fact that I’m pretty damn out of shape. I look forward to many stories from South America when they return.

I’ve been going a little stir crazy here. I did work on the Subaru (installed the subwoofer) and the Jeep (finished the skid plate install), as well as some other tasks around the house yesterday. Today I decided to catch Episode III (I figured Sunday morning at 10AM was a good time, not to mention it was matinee prices).

There has been a lot of talk about Episode III, so I don’t think I’ll go into a lot of detail. The movie was good, better than episodes I and II. I did get chills when Darth dons the suit, but overall I would consider the movie a failure. There were a lot of good ideas in this flick, but too many problems. I felt that the final scenes should have been a bigger send off (they were particularly weak).

Next on the upcoming movie list are Mr. & Mrs. Smith (6/10) and Batman Begins (6/17) which I think will both be very enjoyable films.
