The 3 1/2 Minute Review: Revenge of the Sith (video)


Update 1/12: The video is up.

With all the Star Wars hype, I was inspired to revisit the prequel films, which I haven't seen in five years. I watched Revenge of the Sith in anticipation of this video review. It's up a day late due to difficulty (ten years after it became a massive box office hit, the movie is surprisingly hard to acquire on DVD). I actually ended up watching the film twice before I made this. What do you think of Revenge of the Sith? Is it the best of the prequels by default? Is it underrated by its many detractors? How does George Lucas' visual sense compare to J.J. Abrams' The Force Awakens?

For more on Star Wars check out my reviews of The Force Awakens and the first six episodes, a visual tribute to the arc of Anakin Skywalker, my reflections on the sale of Lucasfilm. and a brief discussion of Star Wars fan culture.

And you should also explore the two writers whom I thanked in the credits: Bob Clark (whose work, including Star Wars-related animation, can also be found on NeoWestchester) and Roderick Heath.

Original intro:

My video review of Revenge of the Sith is close to completed, I just didn't have it available yet this morning. Watch this space, as it will probably upload today and this post will be updated with a video and short description when it's ready.
