Good evening, Superblog!! fans. Or good whatever-it-is -when-you-read-this. You may have heard that a movie called, of all stupid things, Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, is about to premiere. Or has it already come out? I don't know.
Anyway, Superblog!! already wrote about this movie a long time ago (in a galaxy far far away hahaha oh shut the fuck up), way before anyone else had heard about it, so I just want to take a minute now to point you in the direction of this review, or whatever it is, cos I think it makes a few interesting points:
Is Star Wars actually a kind of antidote to the pessimism of the post-Vietnam, post-Watergate generation? A movie that allows conservatives to believe in a just war and liberals to believe that resistance can, finally, lead to victory? A movie that reassures both sides that good deeds need not come at the expense of personal happiness? [...] But what, then, is the context of the current trilogy? What is it that compels millions of fans to shell out billions of dollars on tickets and movie-related paraphernalia for three of the worst films to plague theaters in recent memory?Yeah, you'll have to go read it to find out, I guess.
Bonus! Here's the answer to the question you never dared ask: Do Manga Characters Look "White"?
