Are you sure you weren't just mesmerised by the special effects? From what
I've heard, there are plenty of fights, and plenty of Jedi knights swinging
their light sabres around. But is there more to the movie? The "love"
dialogue in the trailers was very wooden, IMO. I'm waiting for Mr. Cranky
(www.mrcranky.com) to review the movie. His Spider-man review was nutty!

And the Yoda in this one is a CGI character. Contort his body, he can.
Shove a light sabre up your arse, he will. :)

But... octogenarian Christopher "Saruman or Drakula - you decide" Lee is a
bad guy. That itself should be interesting.

Not much to make anything of, actually. ;)
If you want to give your imagination a break, however, try this URL (may
offend some people):

Hey, Natalie Portman is kinda cute, but when I look at her, I still see the
12 year-old from "The Professional", and that puts me off.

Wonder who will play Anakin in part 3. Actually, I'm quite looking forward
to part 3, when Anakin becomes Vader and wipes out the Jedi. It's going to
be a dark movie... (titled "No Hope" perhaps?)

(who'll probably not get to see the movie for a month or two in India)
