Eric D. Snyder's review of Star Wars - R.O.T.S

It's hard to compare "Revenge of the Sith" to the other five movies because it's so unlike them. It has fewer major characters than its brethren, not to mention fewer subplots and less levity. And it's almost exactly what it needs to be, a powerful middle film to end one trilogy and presage another. It's impossible for any prequel to be as good in our memories as the original trilogy was; technology, culture and the movie-going experience have changed too much since then. But "Revenge of the Sith" is the best of the prequels, and a worthy successor to the "Star Wars" legacy. Grade: B+

JB here: That's my problem - I don't like Movies, Books, Tales or Stories that have a sad ending. So, will I see this movie or not? Dang it; I didn't want to see Anakin become Darth Vader.
