The romance or immodesty isn't unbearable either. Fun stuff, if you like "emo dude" (as a family member calls Anakin).

    As for the rest of the movie, it was interesting, both in an entertainment sense and in an intellectual sense. Like "The Dark Knight," the themes are complex and thought-provoking; it's a movie I'll have to watch multiple times before I fully grasp all the nuances. Unlike "The Dark Knight," however,…
