    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

    ★★★

    Star wars marathon part 3:
    I was really on board with this having already seen the clone wars TV show. It starts off way better than the first 2 and continues the pace for most of the film. Anakin still just comes off too whiney however and the dialogue is still left wanting. But the action is good and order 66 it hit me in the feels. Ewan mcgregor definitely brings this rating up and I feel like he was the only one acting his heart out throughout.
    Overall not as good as the og, but doesn't deserve the hate it gets.

Cgi fest, bad choreography and some hilariously bad dialogue that once again has only one legit cool scene near the end (yoda) whilst we spend 2 hours with a creepy, unstable hormonal anakin whining about how life isn't fair and then fulfilling Lucas' dismembered hand fetish.
    However it did give us the "I don't like sand" meme so there's something.

    Ragnarok is let down however by the painfully generic plot: Set up the hero, villain appears and ruin everything, hero goes on journey of self discovery and makes some friends along the way culminating in a battle with faceless grunts and CGI monsters (although no blue sky beam this time…

    The fact that Sean Astin wasn't nominated for an Oscar is a crime against cinema.
