Sun May 29 2005 22:23 PST: For lack of anything better to do Rachel and I went to see the new Star Wars movie. And it was pretty good as such things go, though... well, if I start complaining about things I'll stop liking the movie. Just one thing: all the scenes take place in furniture catalogs. In fact, furniture catalogs are more realistically furnished than the scenes in this movie. Nobody in the movie has any paperwork or magazines lying around or anything. It's creepy. But this, as with all of this movie's shortcomings, just leaves me wondering if the same shortcomings are also present in the original movies, hidden behind a veil of nostalgia. Come out from behind that veil of nostalgia and fight, you cowardly shortcomings!
