Theatrical report

Zowie!

There were a few new bits and some old bits I had forgotten but it's still really cool. Fun laffs, excitement, thrills, babes, special effects: way cool.

Sure, it's also really corny. Sure, Mark Hamill still can't act (did anyone else see Corvette summer?). Sure, Princess Leia only uses the force to change her hairstyles. But who cares? This film is for fun. No-one is accusing George Lucas of making art. So grab a giant bucket of commemorative popcorn (fibre), a super large coke (sugar and caffeine) (and the cup is useful for doing number ones without having to leave the auditorium), and a giant packet of Maltesers (chocolate!) and do it.
