Spike was showing Star Wars Episodes I & II last night. I left it on in the background and caught scenes here and there as I was in and out. It had been a while since I’d seen either of these movies and I’m actually happy to see that they are just as fucking retarded as what I remembered. Leading up to the release of Episode I, I was as giddy and excited as any other Star Wars geek. And I felt as disgusted and betrayed as everybody else after watching it. I struggled through Episodes II and III just to see if Lucas could redeem himself at some point. Sadly, no.
There are Lucas apologists out there who would argue but these movies are nothing but crunchy, smelly skid marks on the silk panty legacy of Star Wars.
