Film Critic Quote of the Week:

"McDiarmid [as Palpatine] isn't the subtlest of satanic tempters. With his lisp and his clammy little leer, he looks like an old queen keen on trading an aging butt-boy (Count Dooku) for fresh meat—which leaves Anakin looking more and more like a 15-watt bulb."
- David Edelstein of Slate, reviewing “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.” Well, uh, that’s one interpretation. Though it does make a lot more sense than the “it's all an anti-Bush allegory” meme.

I’m seeing it Friday night. Not expecting a whole lot, but maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised.
