I’m actually excited now to see the new Star Wars movie. I mean, not camped-out-in-front-of-the-theater-dressed-as-a-wookie excited, but still, faintly vibrating. This is strange because, when I walked out of the theater after Episode II, I doubted I’d even bother to see Episode III on the big screen. But I keep hearing good buzz about it. Even the New York Times liked it, saying it’s better than the original Star Wars. We’ll see.
In the meantime, I’ll be doubling my scientific knowledge tonight by watching The Science of Star Wars on the Discovery Channel.
Update: I’m now officially excited to see the new Star Wars movie and the new The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe movie.
Further Update: The Science of Star Wars featured some nifty stuff, like the exoskeletal legs, but boy, I think that even the worm-robot that burrows through rubble looking for survivors and has a brain like an ant must have felt that the patronizing narration was an insult to its intelligence.
