The first reviews for Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith are in, and as Yoda might say, "Awful, this one isn't." Variety says the final chapter in George Lucas' space saga "irons out most of the problems [from Episodes I and II], and emerges as the best in the overall series since The Empire Strikes Back." The Hollywood Reporter, meanwhile, calls the film "genuinely thrilling," adding that Lucas "ends the six-movie series on such a high note that one feels like yelling out, "Rewind!" And yours truly, who caught a preview screening last night just hours after returning from a weeklong vacation, raves, "This almost makes up for that Jar-Jar debacle... I said almost. Furthermore, how much did everyone miss me?"
