Fuck Star Wars
I'm probably not going to win any new friends by saying this, but I just don't give a shit about the new Star Wars movie. Or really any of the other ones for that matter. Frankly, the only way you could get me to pony up money for a babysitter and go to the theater is maybe if Han Solo and Chewbacca outed themselves as lovers and bought a flat in the Castro (from there, the movie pretty much writes itself).
That being said, I am pretty impressed that Mr. Lucas is shooting the entire thing digital, using the Sony HDC-F950. Unprecedented and pretty cool.
I am also glad (spoiler alert) to hear that Samuel L. Jackson ain't goin' out like a punk. This, from IMDB,
"Samuel L. Jackson (Mace Windu) said he knew that he must die in this film, so he told George Lucas he would only do the film if Mace Windu goes out in a blaze of glory and not "like some sucka". On an American late-night talk show, he confirmed that he did indeed have a meaningful death scene; and he does not go out like "some punk"."
