To counter A.O. Scott's review, the Skidmeister sent over Peter Travers' thoughts from Rolling Stone:
"Drink the Kool-Aid. Wear blinders. Cover your ears. Because that's
the only way you can totally enjoy Revenge of the Sith -- the final
and most futile attempt from skilled producer, clumsy director and
tin-eared writer George Lucas to create a prequel trilogy to match the
myth-making spirit of the original Star Wars saga he unleashed
twenty-eight years ago."
Ouch! This one just pisses me off.
Me? I'm going in with blinders on!
