Well, I guess we should talk about Star Wars. The fighting was cool, the effects were well done, all loose ends have been tied up. There were some cheesy moments (Darth Vaders cry of anguish near the end leaps to mind), but in general it was pretty good. The way I see it, the movie was the best possible ending to the worst possible mistake. The second trilogy should have never been made, but of course once the ball got rolling there was no way to stop it.

I'm glad it's over. Now maybe we can give other directors a chance to lead the geeks into a new era in sci-fi. With any luck, the worst thing that could happen is that all future sci-fi projects are compared to the original trilogy, and the supplementary trilogy is forgotten forever. That of course is not likely to happen, but I can dream, right?
