REVENGE OF THE SITH

So, Star Wars fans, Episode III's title has been released and it's "Revenge of the Sith." Wanna bet they change it to "Return of the Sith" two months before the film's release? If you got that joke, you're probably as big a Star Wars nerd as I am. Still can't tell how big a nerd you are? Don't worry. I can help...

You might be a Star Wars nerd if...

...you try to use the Force to wrest the cordless phone from its base and make it fly across the room to you, even though it's only four feet away...

...you use Jedi mind tricks, either at home or at work...(An example: "I'm not the employee you're looking for...")

...you find yourself calling someone a "scruffy-looking Nerfherder"...

...you know that Luke was going to go to Tashi to pick up some power converters...

...you have an old videotape of Episode IV in which the stormtrooper hits his head on the way into the room where Threepio and R2 are holed up...

...when someone says "No, it's not true," you are compelled to say "I'll never join you!"

...you know how to say "Bantha fodder" in Huttese...

...you see two danishes at a continental breakfast and automatically think of Princess Leia's hair in Episode IV...

...you cried when Alec Guinness died in real life...

...you know who Admiral Akbar, Nien Nunb and Salacious Crumb are...

...you were shocked when you first saw James Earl Jones...

...the name Jar-Jar Binks fills you with a terrible, vengeful wrath...

...your hope for a new episode has fueled your existence for the past several years, only to have your faith betrayed by the increasingly weak Episode I, Episode II and a lackluster title for Episode III...not that you'll skip the Revenge of the Sith, or whatever it will be called by then...because you're a Star Wars fan, and you'll see whatever they'll give you.

I know how you feel.

Ok, now I feel strange. The only Star Wars movie I have seen was the very first one. I have also never seen the Titanic or any of the Matrix movies. I really need to get out more...

I sat in my seat and bounced with glee as the lights went down for Attack of the Clones. Glee despite the lameness that was Phantom Menace. My girlfriend looked across at me with that indulgent little smile, the one that says: "I don't get it, but it's just so cute I'll put up with it."

I was 11 years old when Star Wars(the New Hope) hit the theaters. I saw it 5 times, nowhere near the record even amongst my friends, but we weren't rich. Every episode since has been a disappointment to one degree or another but still I hope. I hope to recapture that feeling of awe and excitement. I hope to live in a universe were good triumphs despite the evident power of evil. As the lights go down before the Revenge of the Sith I will, just for a briefest of moments, live in that universe. It will be so awe-some and exciting how could I sit still?
