Rated NR

Adventure, Family, Sci-Fi
This movie is exactly ten times better than the last Star Wars, which is to say that it sucks. Mostly, it’s just footnotes for the next Star Wars film, so if you’re one of those hardcore geeks who likes to memorize every detail about some science-fiction universe, then you’ll really dig the endless expository dialogue and convoluted plotting of this film. On the plus side, there’s some cool fighting sequences featuring Yoda and Samuel L. Jackson as Mace Windu. Although the fact that Sam Jackson is the only black guy in the movie kind of makes me wonder what Lucas means by "the dark side of the force." Anyway, the cool action sequences come only after nearly two hours of "that sucks," so they’re hardly worthwhile, but maybe you could sneak into the end of Star Wars after giving your money to some more worthwhile cinematic venture, like that Pauly Shore comeback movie, or that Worst of Steven Spielberg retrospective.
