Yay, geek blasphemy! Or blasphemy by geeks, whatever. Anyway, my friend Oli texted me last night to let me know that Revenge of the Sith is "the best Star Wars movie in 23 years. But that's not saying much." Or, as Metacritic put it, "Talk about lowering your expectations. Episode I and Episode II were so -- and let's be honest here -- bad, that Episode III can't help but shine in comparison."
In other geek news, Frasier is the Beast. And V for Vendetta star Natalie Portman looks good even when she's bald, kind of like Patrick Stewart. Though there the comparisons end, I hope.
In other other news, my column is online. Thanks for the link, Kristine! Expect it to be out in the print version every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month.
