Suspithious Sithery

The Original Cyberpunk makes use of his Hollywood connections:

As April gives way to May and the final days tick down, one question preoccupies millions of highly trained technical minds around the globe: does George Lucas still have it, or will Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith be yet another example of beautiful cinematography and brilliant special effects in the service of an infantile story line? While I realize I’m in danger of jeopardizing decades of close personal friendship here, I also believe that in time George will thank me for telling you all today that the answer to this question is an absolute, unqualified, and resounding, YES!

Er, that is, yes, George Lucas does still have it.

Really, I can’t say enough about how impressed I am that he has saved the biggest and best surprise for last. This is no ordinary story-teller’s feat: for 28 years he has kept one essential piece of misdirection going and one utterly mind-blowing surprise under wraps. I am speaking, of course, of the one critical question that underpins the entire evolution of the whole storyline; that of the true identity of the evil Galactic Emperor.

I don’t care. Star Wars is dead to me. After the abomination that passed for Episode I, I refuse to see II or III. II was on one night and I saw just enough of it to confirm my decision.
