    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith 2005

    ★★½ Rewatched 10 Apr, 2016

    DVD: What a difference 11 years makes. I may have rewetted this after I bought the DVD. I really liked it in theaters - at least I thought it was the best of the prequel trilogy - but today I'm not so sure.
    Throughout the entire viewing, which I split up into two nights, was think about how bad the CGI looked. The CGI looked great projected in 35mm but viewing it digitally, not so much. It looked like a great video game.
    Ugh. Maybe I just wasn't into it - but next time, I'll stick with the original 3 or FORCE AWAKENS.

    Tarantino is so good that even Jamie Fox can't ruin this movie.
    Hilarious, bloody, intense, epic. Exactly what you'd expect from a slave movie / Western from Quentin Tarantino. I had high expectations and this film met them. Always a good year when there's a film from this writer/director to remind us how good movies can be - and should be.
