"Star Wars" Critic Quote of the Day

"The general opinion of “Revenge of the Sith” seems to be that it marks a distinct improvement on the last two episodes, “The Phantom Menace” and “Attack of the Clones.” True, but only in the same way that dying from natural causes is preferable to crucifixion."
-Anthony Lane, reviewing 'Sith' in the New Yorker.

And speaking of "Star Wars" and the "Manhattan media elite," right now, somewhere on the Upper West Side, Frank Rich and Maureen Dowd are flipping a coin over who gets to write the "Bush as Darth Vader" column in the Times this weekend.

I hope it's Rich! And Bush isn't Vader, he's Palpatine.
