Don't worry... this is spoiler free. I just wanted to share some comments about the experience...
I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Red Carpet Premiere of Revenge of the Sith last night. I'd done some work with the Children's Health Fund, and they were returning the favor by sponsoring the event.
Anyway, I won't go into specifics about the movie, but I left the theatre firmly convinced it is the best of all six films. (A bold statement, I know...) Sure, it's got some flaws and Natalie Portman seemed to flub most of her lines, but it's a thoroughly enjoyable film.
And I'll admit it... Lucas was right: I did get teary-eyed in a few spots.
Some of the other folks I was with thought it was "up there" with Empire, but not necessarily better. It's sort of comparing apples and oranges, in a way. Regardless, it's a solid, fantastic film!
And it wouldn't be a premiere without some celebrities!
Well, okay, maybe there were more B-grade celebs there, but here are some pics from the after-hours party, hosted at the swanky 21 Club in NYC.
That's Frank Oz in the upper left, Constantine from American Idol in the upper right (nice guy, but not sure why he was the most photographed person there..), a buddy of mine in the lower left, and the Glastineau Girls in the bottom right.
Sam Jackson, Liam Neison, Peter Mayhew were all there as well, but unfortunately I couldn't snap any decent pics of them.
Anyway, the "Vadertinis" drinks were flowing a'plenty, and everyone seemed to be having a fun time.
One of the more bizarre moments was running into a Sandtrooper in the Men's Room. Um.... yeah. Bizarre.
And it's sort of a running joke around here about my muntant-boy freakish height, but I thought this pic best explains it.
I'm the guy on the left, by the way. =)
Anyway, hope y'all enjoy the pics!
