Fool Me Once, Shame on You; Fool Me Twice...

Saw the preview for the next Star Wars movie, and damn if it wasn't all that and a tub of popcorn.  Looked like it had everything I wanted in the movie -- good plot, really awesome battle sequences, lots of action, lots of pathos, and James Earl Jones (who I hope will take over relatively early in the movie, rather than having a final now-he's-Darth-Vader cameo).

I'm trying not to get excited about it, though.  I mean, I liked the previews for the other prequels well enough, and those films kinda, y'know, blew.  I've got to keep reminding myself that just because Lucas can snip together two and half minutes of movie to make an exciting trailer, doesn't mean the other ninety-five minutes of movie won't be dominated by Jar-Jar Binks or the worst romantic dialogue in filmmaking history.  Heck, for all I know, it could be Jar-Jar Binks delivering the bad romantic dialogue.

Based on track record, I have to assume this movie is going to be just as bad as the others, until I hear otherwise.

But my inner geek is still psyched.

I recently saw the preview as well, and it truly does look terrific.  I am not a Star Wars fan by any means, but I'm actually tempted to see this one.  Eric, of course, was glued to the preview.  I mean he couldn't take his eyes off of it.  If you see it before me, I totally would love to hear your opinion.  Hugs!!!
