Finally the wait is over. Episode-I hit Norway
this weekend. For those of us that where blocked out
by the Trade Federation (work) from going to the US
to attend the opening weekend there it has been a long
wait, but for a Jedi patience is a virtue.
When all the commercials for these trivial things where
finished and the THX trailer very starting to play the
public where applauding eagerly. The same thing happened
when the Lucasfilm logo where displayed. In the
film the same occurred when R2-D2 and C-3PO
came on screen, more like to welcome back an old friend.
One of the things the public, me included, didn't like
was that the opening titles where in Norwegian.
The critics in general didn't understand a clue, but
that wasn't big news. I guess that the few critics that
liked the movie will get a cross-examination from they're
colleague on the next critics convention. Anyway the
media where shooting pictures from all angles in front
of the first showing. Se my pictures here.
Well I guess you already have guessed that I loved
it. Actually I didn't believe that it should bring back
the same feelings that I got when I saw Star Wars for
the first time decades ago, but it really did. It's
different on the surface, but it's still Star Wars with
it's mythology and all. Of course with a lot of stunning
effects, but if you only seen the effects, you haven't
seen it at all. After seeing it for the third time
this morning (we got breakfast with the ticket) I can
say that it is getting better each time I see it.
