The latest installment to Star Wars saga is explosive. I saw it in the morning at a local cinema and I very much love it. It is better in many aspects when compared to the first two prequels. Revenge of the Sith is involving because instead of depending solely on choreography of lightsaber duel and special effects, Episode III rely more on emotion – betrayal, to me, seems to be the central theme.

My two favorite moments are when the clone troopers turn on the Jedi and when Anakin loses to Obi-Wan. The betrayal, if it is not for the original trilogy and the expanded universe, would have been shocking. I was especially moved during the assasination of Ki-Adi-Mundi.

Most memorable quote is spoken by Padme Amidala: “This is how liberty ends: with thunderous applause“. What makes the quote memorable is its great relevancy to the real world.

Seven bucks well-spent.

Well, I’m off to San Francisco to meet some people. Later.
