The Force is Strong with Episode III

Adding to a previous post, early word on Episode III from several sources is positive. Also a good sign: Lucas is letting the media preview the movie weeks before its release. Some samples:

  • Newsweek – Not an overly glowing review, but he does say “As Anakin finally gets bad, the director finally gets good.” They also say it gets good in the last 45 minutes.
  • ComingSoon.net has two reviews.
  • The Telegraph liked it, too – “The acting from the human cast is superior to previous films.”

Positive reviews (as if this movie will need it) are a generally a good thing, except, alas, for perpetual pessimists like myself who will only manage to get expectations set high enough so that no movie could possibly meet them.
