Digital Boogaloo

I remember thinking that half of these guys — overweight and pony-tailed — could be models for the comic book store owner in The Simpsons…. When the trailer for Episode III came on, there were equal parts cheering and booing, and one very loud, “You suck, George Lucas!”… My wife has not read the books and enjoyed the film…. As a long-time Douglas Adams fan, I found lots to enjoy, but also many filmmaking decisions that puzzled and frustrated me…. It’s not a love story, and I think that by trying to make it one, the story lost its center…. The two media are completely different, and so much has to be lost in the translation from the page to the screen.
