I was all ready to give Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith my official B+ rating until the part where (not a big spoiler) Darth Vader steps off his platform, and in a poorly-executed appeal to Frankstein, puts his arms out and "Arrghhhh"s. Now it's just a "B".

Which means it was better than the Exorcist, which I saw coupla nights ago (B-).

I appreciated Cannibal the Musical a lot more after watching the opening sequence of the Oklahoma! movie today. Yeah, that's good stuff.


Target is a quality discount retailer with hundreds of stores from coast-to-coast. We offer fashion-forward, trend-right merchandise to our guests at great prices. But what makes Target different from all other retailers is our Fast, Fun & Friendly attitude. No other company is Fast, Fun & Friendly. It's a part of who we are. And it's a part of you, too.

Amazing how they manage to get those always-perky, upbeat slightly-older-than-middle-age women as HR exec.s at retail companies.

    Blargh...every company is supposedly fast, fun and friendly..aka annoying as hell to shop at and to work in. Grr retail.

    The "arrrrr" was comedy gold. Way to kill the moment star wars. Still a super duper entertaining movie though. Glad we got there 50 years early.

    Nope. Gotta disagree with you, buster. It was all good. The terrible dialogue, the wooden acting - this movie will never win an Oscar, but it is still the best of all time. Why? Because Lucas has created a movie that actually succeeds without the need for actors. Anyone could have played those characters. (Except Samuel L. Jackson, because killing him is the best representation of converting to the dark side I can think of.)

    Anyway, it was great. GREAT GREAT GREAT!
