honestly a great star wars movie. the only prequel that matters, but a lot of that is simply because of its constraints. Lucas simply had to wrap everything up concisely, as meandering as much as he did in ep 1 and 2 wouldn't work here. anakin needs to become vader, palpatine needs to become the emperor, yoda and obi-wan need to fail and go into exile, the jedi need to die, and luke/leia need to be born. very very simple but really just an overall tight movie that makes the investment in the series feel worthwhile and satisfying.

Stuck between a 3.5 and a 4 star rating but I’ll give it the edge. Really not scary or even creepy, more just weird and slightly eerie. Maybe I’m desensitized though. Definitely preferred this to Hereditary, weird as that may sound to some people. Florence Pugh is fantastic here, also.
