Shane Turgeon:
Before I get into my thoughts on ROTS, I feel that I have to preface them with my thoughts on the previous two prequels. To be blunt, I really can't stand either and can barely bring myself to watch them. The previous two prequels have left me feeling let down to say the least. So, that being said I was expecting very little from ROTS and I went to see it with trepidation, thinking full well I'd come away from it with the same feeling of resentment.

Imagine my surprise when I left the theatre this afternoon actually saying that i really enjoyed this movie - a lot. Yes, it was a new Star Wars film and it still had that feel to it but at the same time, it felt very much like the old movies did and how Star Wars *should* feel. It's hard to adequately describe this film while still being sensitive to those out there wishing to remain spoiler free so I'll simply say this - Revenge of the Sith is in my eyes, the redemption of the Saga. It made me a fan again, kept me enthralled for 2 hours and made me excited to see it again on the 19th. Of course, I have some gripes - namely the pacing towards the end and the fact that there is still far too much reliance on bad CG effects, and I do think the film is far from perfect but it's easily the best of the three and I think many fans may come away from this movie with a feeling of satisfaction. It's just a shame that it's taken us 22 years to get here again.

The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
