Well, saw the new Star Wars yesterday. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't really good either. I thought it was too slow, too much of Lucas's lame attempts at politics. Dialogue was of course weak. I wasn't even very excited by the fight choreography, which seemed to me weaker than the other two prequels (though maybe I've been spoiled by the Clone Wars).

I did of course love all the nostaligiac touches from the original trilogy. Sadly, in my geekened state, they were probably worth the price of my ticket by themselves.
