Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith – Master regains his touch + Engrish humor

Watched the Revenge of the Sith last week. It triggered  glorious memories of Star Wars that I remember watching as a kid. Revenge of the Sith scores in every dimension of movie making – script, direction, cinematography,  special effects. George Lucas has brought back the Star Wars magic after making 2 duds (Episode I and II). The scenes showing the volcanic moon Mustafar are out of the world. On a humorous note, Boing Boing posted a link showing some hilarious subtitles from a bootlegged copy. You gotta hand it to them for coming up with such cool stuff.  Go over to the link and read the subtitles. You are guaranteed to roll over with laughter. For those that are unfamiliar with this Engrish stuff, check out  the venerable Wikipedia. You can be sure that this phenomenon is legit when there is a website called Check it out, laughter  is guaranteed. Legend has it that this Engrish thingy started from the english found in a game called Zero Wing. Makes for another funny reading.

    This one was much better than the 2 prequels, though still not as good as ‘Empire Strikes Back’ or ‘Return of the Jedi’.

    I really liked the way Lucas tied all the pieces together. Wish the dialogues were’nt so trite.

    I finally got to see the latest StarWars movie last week. The special effects were cool (I think Kishore would call it Vittalachariah movie done Hollywood style)

    Some scenes reminded me of our good ol’ tamil movies – especially when Obi-wan Kenobi on some dino looking creature is able to track down the evil commander fleeing on a hi-tech getaway gizmo 🙂

    I could tell that the whole country had seen this movie already as there were only 5 of us in the whole theatre!!
