I just read a review over at boxofficemojo.com and found this kinda funny:


It falls to Obi-Wan Kenobi, the story's godfather, to fully enunciate the Star Wars philosophy, hissing that "only a Sith would speak in absolutes," a statement which asserts an absolute.

The entire review is here:

So what about it. Is this guy taking it out of context? Reading too much into it?

Is it just more bad script writting by you know who?

That's the whole joke about desparaging absolutes, it cannot be done without essentially making one.

"Hissing"? That's pretty much showing your cards. Sounds like this guy is a little upset that he found out Santa doesn't exist, i.e., that while SW may look as though it is absolutist, it has acknowledged in the last hour that maybe life isn't quite so simplistic. Boo-friggity-hoo.

What a jackrabbit.

I wish I could get paid for posting my reviews online, as opposed to posting them for free on SSG. :p

Wow this is bad, although he does make a nice ironic point about Obi Wan's point on absolutes.... So I'll make one.... only a jackalope would write such absolute dribble.
