Episode III: ROTS doesn’t suck and other opinions

My sons and I (and my 11-year old boy’s date!!!“) all enjoyed Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. I know it didn’t have much in the way of decent dialog or acting, but when compared to the other 5 in the series (especially episodes I and II), it rocked. I’ve only seen it once, but right now it’s tied for first in my mind with A New Hope (I know some snobs like The Empire Strikes Back best, but I still love the feel of the first one).

Also, I liked Unleashed a great deal. Not only did I enjoy the fighting, but I really enjoyed the relationship between Danny and his new family.

On the other hand, in spite of being a huge Frank Miller fan in general and a Sin City comic book fan specifically, I couldn’t stand that silly movie. I wanted to see a movie version, not the comic book version projected onto the screen!

In other news, I’m still waiting for a sequel to The Matrix. I don’t count this fan-boy movie or this one. Anyone got a release date to a follow on worth the time to watch?
