The last instalment before the real Star Wars starts.  After 3 years of fighting in the Clone Wars (amazing animated series) Anakin is lured towards the dark side by the evil Sith lord. The Jedi are taken by surprise and the beginning of The Empire is here at last.

You know it’s not going to be good, but we went anyway.

A Toast

So much story is left to tell in the last instalment.  Fans flocked to the cinemas the way mothers flock to a NEXT sale. The end is here and no matter how bad or good, it would make cinema history: the birth of Darth Vader, Luke, and Leia.

Beer Two

The worst Jedi Council in history was currently in charge of the galaxy. They deserved to lose to the Empire. They lost a planet!! They can’t see the future right in front of them. They never seem to see the future. Yoda was suspicious of Anakin, but he just sits there till it’s too late. What did the Jedi council do to get voted in charge in the first place? I bet they just mind tricked a few people for the extra votes!! And the way they took care of the youngest of the Jedi is borderline criminal!

Looking cool with lightsabers, but please step down from the council before someone gets hurt!

Beer Three

Anakin Skywalker. I know we weren’t supposed to like him, he does after all turn into the spine-tingling, hair-raising black clad Darth Vader. But still did they have to make him an emotional teenager that just needs a slap? He spends the entire time whining about himself. Maybe the Jedi council just couldn’t be arsed with him anymore and just let him carry on regardless.

Evil happening with teens the galaxy over. Let’s hope that Justin doesn’t start playing with lasers!!

Verdict

threebeers

Not a bad film on the whole, it had some great moments and some you wish you had never seen.  All in all it did what it had to for us to really go to a galaxy far, far away.  The first three films were anticipated for so many years, and so many ideas had been thrown around, that I sometimes wonder if they could have ever make fans happy. The beloved Star Wars films that I grew up with, where I was whisked away on the Millennium Falcon, could never be replaced by a mediocre script and what seemed like a half-hearted attempt at making movie magic.

Sometimes you should just leave things alone. You can’t remake magic.

Drinking Game

Take a Drink: when you realise that Obi Wan has NEVER visited Anakin at home!! What kind of a friend is he?

Take a Drink: when you can see what’s going to happen but STILL no Jedi do!

Take a Drink: when you see Anakin chopped into bite-size pieces

Do a Shot: when Padme is on screen; I miss her with a gun and an opinion.

Make a Toast: when Vader arrives.
