For [ profile] lizbee, it's the best new soap on the market. Seriously, I want this stuff. The dispenser alone is a thing of beauty. And I have two boys who seriously need to acquire better handwashing skills.

Also, if you haven't seen the Chad Vader videos, you really, really must, because they are hilarious. I can't wait for Episode Three!
Well, that was pretty much what I expected, after the last two Star Wars films.

No specific spoilers, just some general comments on RotS )

So ultimately I guess my reaction to the film, and indeed this whole prequel trilogy, can be summed up in one word: *shrug*.
Well, this is cool:

which Episode II character are you?

Probably the greatest Jedi Knight of all. Like Obi Wan, you are wise and keep your feet on the ground at all times. You will not be outsmarted by anyone. You are always faithful to your friends. Be careful though, danger lurks around every corner - you could even be betrayed by those closest to you.

(Could be? Try have been. Repeatedly, even. Though, mercifully, not in the last eight years or so -- Ed.)
C&P from a chat with Teri this afternoon:

Me: So, seen "Attack of the Clones" yet?
Teri: Nope.
Me: I was amused.
Teri: Why amused? I mean, aside form the fact that I've heard it's cheesy... :-)
Me: Well, it's good entertainment, as far as being pretty to look at and having lots of action and something actually resembling a coherent and interesting plot.
Teri: Mm, coherent. Wow.
Me: It is also unintentionally hilarious in parts, whereas the parts where they actually tried to be funny mostly fall flat (unlike the original STAR WARS, which I really wanted to see again after watching this, just to remind myself that the SW universe used to have real actual *characters* in it).
Teri: Heh.
Me: But it beats the pants off "Phantom Menace", to be sure. And the lightsabre duels are really cool.
Teri: I did NOT even like PM. Though I saw this really funny parody of it once. hee hee.
Me: PM was lame, yes. This really is much better. And Ewan McGregor has his Alec Guinness impersonation absolutely nailed...
Teri: Hehe.
Me: [In spite of what some reviews say] I didn't think the acting was THAT bad. I mean, it's not like Mark Hamill was gonna win any awards as Luke Skywalker either...
Teri: For real. But I suspect the movie is candidate for some MSTing, anyway. :-)
Me: Oh, for sure. Natalie Portman's costumes alone are ripe fodder for parody. "Anakin, our love can never be, and we shouldn't even be thinking about it... which is why I'm sitting here with you in a darkened room in front of a fireplace, wearing this fetching black leather bustier with cavernous cleavage."
Teri: LOL!!! ... Man, I guess she's a "casual Friday" type senator....
Me: Oh my word, it's unbelievable. The more she protests against the idea of a relationship, the flimsier and more provocative her costumes get. If Anakin swopped off her head with a lightsaber out of sheer frustration he'd have had my complete sympathy. :-)
