Never been a fan of his and I hate the Amazon links in all of his posts.

Moriarty pulls through again, though this time he takes far too long to get there.

But guess what his two biggest complaints are?

1. David Koepp - Professional Hack at your service

2. Poor conception behind visual/digital effect work

The two biggest thing I was worried about.

Just the same, his review, like the other two is actually getting me more excited for this than I ever have been, which still isn't much true, but it's better.

So all in all, this sounds like it's going to be a decent, entertaining movie, even if the script is lackluster.

Could be worse...

Normally I'm a big fan of Drew's writing, but I didn't appreciate the comments about the "smoking ruins of the Star Wars franchise". Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't he give good reviews to at least 2 of the prequels?

Herc is a corporate whore. 75% of his posts are JUST Amazon links.

He's also a Whedon fanatic, which doesn't earn any points with me either.

Say what you want about Harry, but I can appreciate his emotional reactions at times, and he has a wide, wide range of taste that encompasses both trash and the highest highbrow imaginable.

Yeah, the Star Wars franchise is really hurting these days. Jesus, kids born 25 years after the release of the original love it and love the prequels, too. So tired of people taking shots at the franchise. Wake me up when Drew does something that resonates for three decades and counting.

What, you don't think his episodes of Masters of Horror are classics of the genre?

Yeah, because everyone has to be able to direct a trilogy of blockbuster pictures to be allowed to criticize the Star Wars prequels... even though most critics and fans alike do feel they were massive failures just the same.

Sorry, Lance, but Lucas has achieved just a tad more than directing a trilogy of blockbusters. Also, was this a Clone Wars review, or a review regarding another franchise? Just seemed like an uncalled for sentiment, not to mention a joke of a comment. If that franchise is ruined then I've totally lost my command of the English language.

Eh, moving on.

Call me crazy, but I like Sith as much as Jedi. They've both got their faults, but their heights are fucking spectacular. There's no Ackbar equivalent in Sith, however. Sorry, Commander Cody.

As for Lucas, he's always had his skills and faults as a director and may be largely out-of-touch nowadays, but you can't negate the fact that he's been a key part in some of the best technological innovations in the film over the past 30 years.

YLB, I like Sith better than Jedi. So do a lot of people. No craziness there.

Most people consider Sith the third best movie of them all.

I was under the impression that Jedi gets golden status because it's part of the OT, but that's great to hear.

I like Jedi a lot but prefer Sith, especially upon a few repeated viewings of Sith.
