Blatantly Telegraphed Revenge of the Sith

Ger and I finally got to go see Revenge of the Sith last night (movies are quite a bit more expensive when you have to hire a baby sitter). It’s been discussed to death all over the ‘net by this point, so I won’t say much. Except that the Separatists are about the dumbest, most gullable bunch of bug-eyed aliens I’ve ever seen led blindly to their death. I’m paraphrasing from memory, but a few lines to prove my point go like this:

General Grevious: I’m relocating you to Mustufar. It’s a volcanic planet. You will be safe there.

Separatists: Okiedokie!

Now, call me jaded, but I don’t think “volcanic” and “safe” are two words that belong together unless also accompanied by “get away from.” But wait, it gets better:

Darth Sidious: I’m sending my new apprentice to Mustufar. He will …TAKE CARE OF YOU. BWUHA-HA-HA-HA-HA!

Separatists: Okiedokie!

I mean, c’mon. That’s dumb, even by “villains get their comeupance” standards. Can’t be subtle, can we Mr. Lucas? Oh, wait, sorry. I forgot a spoiler warning. Here:

SPOILERS!

Okay.
