The end of an era - I watched Star Wars, Episode III

I finally watched Star Wars: Episode III today, finishing a long journey started when I was six years old.

It was sad, and a little disappointing.

George Lucas, the saga should have ended much more strongly than it did. Eye candy does not make up for a disjointed storyline and clunky dialog.

For Jar Jar Binks, mercaloids, and all the other disappointments in Episodes I and II, you lost two movie ticket sales for Episode III. For your Orwellian tinkering with the originals, you lost those DVD sales.

May others do your franchise more good than you, Mr. Lucas.
