Creature's Corner

Greetings fellow Jedi (and all the PCR Regulars):
Yep! I did it. I snuck out of the "Castle" to go see the final(yeah, right) installment (or is it the third) of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith!!!!! Interesting how movie # 6 was to be called Revenge of the Jedi but was downgraded to Return (I never knew they left) because Jedi do not practice revenge. So now comes our dear friends, The Sith, to spread utter chaos throughout several planetary systems.

Sith for a Buck
Anyway, I got to the movies and found out that popcorn, hotdogs, and bottled Coke was only a BUCK!!!!!!!! What???? Movie food for only a BUCK!!!!!!!!! It was a special first day offer so I knew what would happen to me if I didn't let those who reside within the sanctitude of ...(oh forget it, the guys in the "Castle") know so I called Gorblie and told him to tell the Prof to get the hearse and load up. We've got a movie to see!!! I told them to gather everything that walks, crawls slithers, slides swims, flies, and undulates and get their asses, pseudopods, parapodia, cilia, tube feet, tentacles, and utriculating hairs down here to the theatre before this event sells out. After all, it's not often that Castle dwellers can move freely among the peoples of the world without drawing attention to themselves. With all the Jedi, Stormtroopers, Darth Vaders and other collective aliens roaming around, they fit in perfectly.

So, they all get to the movies and we walk in to screen # 9 (well, we don't really walk into the screen, just the screening room) to take our rightful places among the throngs of Star Wars fans of all ages. Oh, and before I forget, the event was a complete sell-out in TWELVE screening rooms.

At 12:01 the previews began to roll for what seemed like an eternity until finally the moment we'd all been waiting for arrived. As the music started the twelve screening rooms at Woodland Park Cinema came alive with a collective round of applause for "Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith." You just had to be there to feel that major tremor within the force, a good tremor.

Next week I'll give my review I wouldn't want to spoil this one for anybody. GO SEE IT!!!!!!!!!!!

Have a Great Weekend. (I'm seeing it again Saturday).
