    I didn’t get to see Episode III, Revenge of the Sith in the theater. I wanted to, but things were just too busy, and I was less impressed by Episodes I and II than I was with IV through VI, so it wasn’t a matter of priority. I was also put off a bit by the title. I knew that Episode VI had originally been titled Revenge of the Jedi, but the title had been changed, even though it would have been correct. Here, it was dead wrong; there had been nothing for the Sith to take vengeance over. “Rise...

    Just five days left until Santa makes his yearly appearance, and it leaves me wondering: Is Santa Claus a Jedi? Some friends and I are pretty much convinced Santa is a Jedi, for the following reasons: 1) He wears the same clothes all the time. 2) He has supernatural speed and agility. 3) He's a keeper of the peace, not a soldier. 4) He's an excellent pilot, and he has a speeder we call a sleigh. 5) I would be willing to bet Sith are on his "naughty" list. 6) Given that he is responsible for the manufacture of most...
  • Graham Weaves ‘Star Wars' Parable

    New York — As his final American revival meeting continued Saturday, a fragile Billy Graham was met onstage by former President Clinton, who honored the evangelist, calling him “a man I love.” Clinton spoke briefly before Graham's sermon and recalled how the man known as America's pastor had refused to preach before a segregated audience in Arkansas decades ago when that state was in a bitter fight over school desegregation. Graham called the Clintons “wonderful friends” and “a great couple,” quipping that the former president should become an evangelist and allow “his wife to run the country.” Graham, 86, then...

    A long time ago in a church, far, far away, a vicar and his flock sang their final hymn to the theme tune of the Star Wars saga. Well, not that long ago, or far away, really. Last week, in fact, in West Yorkshire, a parish church held a special service to mark the release of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. It seems that in an increasingly secular Britain, vicars are turning to the Force to keep church attendance figures high, and to attract that crucial youth market. Reverend Paul Walker explained that the service was inspired...

    What can you say about a movie whose most engaging character is a two-foot tall, pointy-eared, green alien? "Star War III: The Revenge of the Sith" is heavy on special effects but sparse on drama, romance, and emotion. It’s also filled with director George Lucas’s muddled thinking. And, yes, it’s science fiction in the service of Michael Moore’s worldview. Despite its record-breaking opening, the last Star Wars installment is bad cinema, because it is a poor narrative. The light-saber duels are fun. The alien creations are cool. The attempts to portray passion or the corruption of the human spirit (how...

    One by one, the landmark epics of the 1970s are tying up the loose ends -- alas, not always in ways that quite support the great mythic power invested in them. In ''Revenge of the Sith,'' George Lucas brings the ''Star Wars'' cycle to a close by revealing how Anakin Skywalker went over to the Dark Side, transformed himself into Darth Vader, destroyed the Republic and consigned it to the mad imperial ambitions of Chancellor Palpatine -- all because, er, he was a bit worried his beloved Senator Padme might die in childbirth. If Senator Padme had been like Senator...

This was in the Ups and Downs segment of the show: Down Star Wars Episode III: the Revenge of the Sith. Now on the strength of Steven Hunter's review in the Washington post. Steven Hunter, I have child-like faith in his reviews, he compared this movie, George Lucas'' movie to John Milton, to Shakespeare, to Herman Melville as a description of a good man descending into He-...into evil. I'm sorry...

    Pity George Lucas. Why should we pity George Lucas? The man could fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool with ten-thousand dollar bills and still have money left over. The Lucas six-episode saga of good versus evil, StarWars, is being dissected by nearly everyone who sees them. I must admit, I can’t resist doing some dissection myself. This last episode, Revenge of the Sith, is drawing more attention than the previous five installments. For anyone not familiar with the Star Wars movies, all one needs to know is that the Jedi Knights and the Sith are sort of like cousins. Both have...

    Revenge of the Sith Reviewed by Edward Hudgins Executive Director The Objectivist Center With Revenge of the Sith George Lucas faced the same problem as did the classical Greek playwrights. Their audiences already knew the stories and myths on which their dramas were based. Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides had to make their plays interesting, enlightening or instructive, usually by offering lessons about hubris, unchecked emotions or moral failing. While the Greeks were not keen on happy endings, Lucas has already given one with the first Star Wars trilogy and we know what to expect in the prequels. We know...

    Sith Fans Maimed in Lightsaber Mishap By Charlie Amter Thu May 26,11:51 AM ET The Force--let alone common sense--was definitely not with them. Two British Star Wars fans sustained critical injuries after constructing their own lightsabers from fluorescent light tubes filled with liquid fuel. According to British media reports, a 20-year-old man and his 17-year-old female friend were filming a mock duel in homage to Star Wars: Episode III--Revenge of the Sith, the latest chapter of George Lucas' record-breaking franchise. The duo were reportedly emulating one of Sith's key battles, a lightsaber clash between Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan Kenobi and Hayden...

    Holy Sith! Darth did some damage at the box office this weekend. Star Wars: Episode III--Revenge of the Sith earned a Yoda-riffic $108.4 million from Friday to Sunday, according to final studio figures released Monday. The boffo numbers didn't quite make for a new opening-weekend record--with a caveat. Spider Man is still the champ thanks to $114.8 million the comic flick swung in with in 2002, and Sith now owns the second-best three-day weekend of all time, edging out Shrek 2's $108 million last year. But with its record-smashing debut midnight Wednesday, the final Star Wars prequel did score the...

    The Force may - or may not - be with Burger King's latest Star Wars-themed Kids Meals. One day after a record-shattering weekend for Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, an advocacy group is asking Burger King to stop the tie-in of its Kids Meals with the film because it is rated PG-13. The same group, Dove Foundation, got McDonald's 13 years ago to apologize for "confusion" from its promotion of PG-13 Batman Returns with Happy Meals. Now, it's going after BK's latest Kids Meal promotion - targeted at kids ages 4 to 9. The meals feature characters...

    CANNES -- Star Wars is a wakeup call to Americans about the erosion of democratic freedoms under George W. Bush, filmmaker George Lucas says. Lucas, responding to a question from The Sun at a Cannes Film Festival press conference on Sunday, said he first wrote the framework of Star Wars in 1971 when reacting to then-U.S. president Richard Nixon and the on-going events of the Vietnam War. But the story still has relevance today, he said, and is part of a pattern he has noticed in his readings of history. "I didn't think it was going to get quite this...
