    Guaranteed to Suck

    I haven't seen the film, nor will I waste my money on it, but I can assure you all that the movie is complete and utter trash based solely on the fact that it is filmed in my home town of Vancouver....

    These are not the droids you are looking for.

    I thought about that when I cracked the original tapes shortly after watching ROTS. (Ha! "ROTS" HAAA!)

    Hard to argue with that.

    What a curse. One of the greatest epic tales of all time soiled by the number one contender for campiest, cheezyest dialogue.
    It's not fair.

    For what it's worth:

    That movie was terrible. It went nowhere quick. As it came to a conclusion, all I could think to myself was: "Of course; Sideways. The writer is having a laugh at our expense. Sideways."
