Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith

J-M's History Corner

Welcome to the 18th edition of My Fortnightly Movie/TV Thoughts.  Last fortnight I reviewed Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999) and Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002).  This fortnight, I’m reviewing:

  • Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005), rated M for science fiction violence

That is the Australian rating; in the United States, it’s rated PG-13 for sci-fi violence and some intense images.

As usual, I’ll give the trailer and a clip at the end.

And a disclaimer:

WARNING: DEFINITE SPOILERS AHEAD.  PROCEED AT OWN RISK.

(Seriously, if you don’t know anything about what happens in the movie and intend to see it, and don’t want spoilers, skip this review.  Perhaps leave a like, of course!  🙂 )
