I Spy Jedis

Here's a fun little game to play while watching "Revenge of the Sith": Where's George Lucas? Apparently, the director makes a cameo appearance in Episode III, but only the sharpest viewers will be able to catch it. That is until one person spots him, posts the info on a "Star Wars" fan site and clues in everyone else. I think this raises yet another possible way to annoy people waiting in line for "Star Wars": Walk up to one of them and say, "I heard the director does a cameo in this movie. That's so cool. I can't wait to see where Alfred Hitchcock turns up."

In the interest of fair play, perhaps the "Star Wars" fans should start a list of comebacks that can be directed at anyone who busts on them for camping out for the movie. A few suggestions:

"Gosh, you're right. We are really lame to be waiting in line for this. If we were smart like you, we'd be on our way home to watch 'Britney & Kevin: Chaotic.'"

"Wait, I'm waiting in line to see 'Sith'? I thought I was waiting in line to see Styx. Great, now I'll never hear 'Mr. Roboto' live."

"Yeah, this Darth Vader suit is really lame. My girlfriend likes me to wear it, though. Did I mention she's, like, super-hot?"

And the always-classic Napoloeon Dynamite response: "Yes, I'm standing in line for 'Star Wars.' I do what I feel like. GOSH!"

I'm sure you  can come up with a few, too. Give it a shot. It will make the time between now and the 12:01 opening go that much faster.

He's in the opera scene. He's wearing a red outfit--and he's blue! Look for him near the lower left of the screen.

This is old news in SW fan circles, it's over a month old.

again, a prequel fails. all three of these films have been a major let down. this third one is flat and emotionless. The dialogue is never genuine and the look has me inside a video game.
