I finally got around to finishing off Star Wars. Episode three made me want to vomit. Seriously. Fairly early in the movie my friend was inspired to lean over and ask if I had a barf bag:
Cliche moment #1 (no, you are, NO you are, no YOU are)
Anakin Skywalker: You are so... beautiful.
Senator Amidala: It's only because I'm so in love.
Anakin Skywalker: No, it's because I'm so in love with you.
If I had been drinking soda, it surely would have shot out my nose.
Cliche moment #2 (in which Padme dies of a broken heart)
Medical Droid: Medically, she is completely healthy. For reasons we can't explain, we are losing her.
Obi-Wan: She's dying?
Medical Droid: We don't know why. She has lost the will to live.
Then, just when you thought Lucas had run out of cliches:
Cliche #3 (Darth Vadar learning of Padme's death)
Darth Vadar: "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" (arms extended to the sky, of course)
Quote: Star Wars or Power Rangers?
"Now you will experience the full power of the Dark Side! "
(Sadly the answer is Star Wars)
And there weren't nearly enough Wookies in this episode.Posted by me at July 20, 2005 12:07 PM
