And the articles just don’t stop coming.
George Lucas on The O.C. tonight. Are you fanboy enough to watch it?
Watching The O.C. isn’t exactly a given, but skipping work? “Worker absenteeism on the Thursday and Friday opening of Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith could cost U.S. employers a whopping $627-million (U.S.) in the two days, according to one report.” Please – most of us arranged vacation time months ago. Get with the program, folks.
Boston Globe article on the fans. (Thanks, Helen!)
The Village Voice reviews ROTS rather unfavorably… But to call it “the most expensive stoner film in history” might be overstating it a bit.

But that hack Kinkade doesn’t do hellfire.)
