Digital Dirt

Just an FYI: the Multiplex Lee Highway is the only local theater showing "Sith" on a digital projector. So if such techie things are important to you, keep that in mind. Of course, such issues probably don't matter much to "Star Wars" fans. As I understand it, very few of them work in tech support and even fewer know how to use computers. Then again, my source on that could be wrong. I think he's the same guy who said he's "pretty sure" Hayden Christensen and Eva Longoria hooked up.

The Crown Theatres Annapolis Mall 11 also has the movie in digital projection. I'd count that as local enough.

Prepared to be disappointed. This was the WORST Star Wars film of all time! George Lucas simply killed off everyone who wouldn't be in Episode IV (with the exception of Jar Jar Binks, sigh). The acting and dialog are wooden. Granted the film starts off well but it just gets slower and slower and dumber and dumber. It's sad to see Star Wars end with such a crappy work of cinema.

Thank you for the reminder about Crown Theatres. I mentioned that in a previous blog post and completely forgot about it earlier today. I'll remind people when I post tomorrow. Thanks, lmnop.

Drips:

What the deuce are you talking about? They didn't kill off "everyone"...
General Ization.

They had to kill off the Jedi, seeing as they weren't there anymore in IV(sorry if you had a big chubby for Mace Windu). The only death that really didn't have to/shouldn't have happen was Padame. Seeing as Leia has memeories of her "mother", it doesn't make sense she's dead before Leia could have memories. Unless she remembers her from the womb or something goofy. And as far as the momentum of the movie...it's not Die Hard here buddy. There has to be downtime. So you wanted just lightsabers flying for 3 hours? Ok, enough of Dork-Off 2005...just enjoy the movie, don't be a movie snob.
Besides, how can you say "the worst" when there was Episode I? That's like saying Billy Baldwin is the worst Baldwin. There is a Daniel.

They didn`t kill all the Jedi! Sure it`s implied, but we did not see Shaak Ti, Luminara Unduli or Bariss Offee get sliced... so there is a chance that they are alive. Perhaps those characters will participate in the upcoming live action TV series?

at worst, this is the second best SW movie. I have no problem saying perhaps THE BEST. It was bold and pulled NO punches. had balls. great. Ignore your fuzzy childhood memories about the beloved original trilogy, SITH was a huge accomplishment. give it props.

lee highway multiplex sux! sure the digital projector was amazing, but what good is that when you have to put up with the old school theater seats that creak everytime you reach for your soda. (which goes on the floor b/c there are no cup holders in the arm rest) so basically anytime there is a quiet (dramatic) moment in the film, it sounds like you are in a bait shop buying crikets. its not even stadium seating so you are sol if theres a tall dude in front of you. wasnt a big fan of the sound either. i think it was dolby. not dts. not thx. not anything worth $6.50. biggest let down ever. but the movie itself was great. i might have to make the trek to annapolis to see it again in a proper setting.
