Star Wars: Revenge Of The Fire Alarms 

Ap0k and I went to see Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith this afternoon. We went up to the Muvico Theater in Ybor because there are rarely kids at that one. We sure seem to be spending a lot of time in Ybor lately! There is another theater just as close to our house, but it seems to be full of screaming pushy teenagers no matter when you go. Ugh!
We got there a little to late for the showing we were aiming for so we got tickets to a later show and wandered around a bit.

When it was time, we went back up (the theater is on a second level) and dawdled our way to our seats. The movie started on time and the theater was pretty full. Not sold out like I anticipated though.

About 15 minutes into the movie the fire alarms went off! Crap!

Everyone in the entire theater (20 screens) had to get up and go outside. No one panicked or anything which was good. We stood outside for around 20 or so minutes. A fire truck showed up but there was no fire to be seen. So back in we all went. Amazingly it appeared that everyone went back to their original seats. They started the movie back up where we left off and everyone was happy enough.

Now it is another 15 minutes later and the fire alarm goes off AGAIN! This time no one wanted to get up because the movie was at a good point. Finally a couple people got up and went out, but they came right back in and said they were told it was a false alarm. So there we sat, trying to hear the movie while the fire alarm was going off. Then poof, they shut the movie off again. Everyone moaned and groaned, and we all got up and went into the lobby. We were all told that it was a false alarm and that the movies would all be restarted at their beginnings in 7 minutes.
Back we go into the theater. Again everyone gets their same seats back, only this time a lot of people have given up and left. The movie starts back up, but not at the beginning like we were told, it started where we left off, which to me was fine.

This time we actually got to finish the movie with no more fire alarms!

I won’t go into the details of the movie as I don’t want to spoil anything for those who haven’t seen it.

Let me first say that while I am a HUGE fan of the original trilogy, I am not a fan of the first two episodes of this new trilogy. They contain too much fluff, too much “love-story”, and I think that Hayden Christensen was a very poor choice to play Skywalker/Vader. He is too young, too pretty, and not near forceful enough to be believable in my opinion.

However, I did like this last movie. Not as much as the original three, but definitely more than the last two.
Hayden is still the wrong actor for the part, but since there is nothing that can be done about that I just dealt with it.
The story line is good, not too much fluff this time. I have to say that the ending had me tensed up in my seat. Yes, the ending was worth the wait.

I give the movie a good solid “B” rating.

Oh, one thing I will say is…..Yoda kicks ASS!!!!
