So, I haven’t posted in a while, right? I’m not asking, even though that’s a question. Now here’s the thing. I saw that piece of crap that everyone _wanted_ to like (even me) called Episode 1 (The Phantom Menace). The only menace was the movie itself. The phantom? that would be the direction, plot, dialogue, story, etc.
And I totally missed out on Episode 2 (Some Pretentious Title I Know Not). Apparently it was also crap, 2 minutes, except for, of yoda doing something with a “laser.” Or was that the last Austin Powers movie? I dunno, I’m sure someone out there can clarify.
So now it’s time for Episode 3 (The Other Title I Don’t Care to Know), which hopefully rounds out the series. Maybe we can all get on with life after this. Now, my wife is planning on seeing it with a few friends of ours. It seems I’m obligated to join them. spb advised me to do watch it after having had a stiff drink or two. Apparently that’s what he did, and his review follows:
“episode 3 has really cool effects when anakin’s eyes turn evil,
and has obi-wan fighting a four-armed lightsaber-wielding droid
that’s all you need to know”
I’m actually fine with that. Sounds like another 2 minutes, only spread apart to keep your attention.
Of course, the most sublime review I heard was this:
“Some peoples ejnoy EP III and some peoples not, I
cannot say, which side I should to choose. Movie is not so bad,
and not so dark and mystery like Lucas want to, and even awsome
Natalie looks strange ;)”
from matti in the old #gentoo-hardened channel.
So, will I or won’t I? I don’t think it’s open to debate, as I rather enjoy spending time with the wife. So in this case, I’ll take one for the team, as it were. I’ll report my findings when I see it.
Oh right, Gentoo news: er, nothing’s happening there, really. Got a few fixes to put in. xterm needs loving, kerberi need loving, samba needs loving.
