The Post on The Force
Stephen Hunter, Style's Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic, weighs in today with his "Star Wars" review. Turns out he likes it, he really likes it: "What this movie does is rise, rise, rise to a level of demonic intensity that hasn't been achieved since 1983's 'Return of the Jedi,'" he writes, later adding, "For my generation, 'Revenge of the Sith' is a brilliant consummation to a promise made a long time ago, far, far away, in a galaxy called 1977." You can't ask for much higher praise than that. For those seeking another Washington Post opinion, a review from Desson Thomson, the critic for the Post's Weekend section, is coming soon.
In other news, I hope you've held on to any "Star Wars" action figures you purchased in 1977. According to this story, the first 12 figures released that year -- if still in their original packaging and in mint condition -- are worth $4,200 a pop. Wow, that's enough to pay for 420 tickets to "Revenge of the Sith."
