Just saw Star Wars.  It was ok.  I didn't like how they set a lightsaber to overload and then throw it like a grenade.  I just can't see a Jedi tossing it down a hallway and then turning to run.  First, you are losing your main weapon.  Second, I would expect a bigger explosion so I would be running away just as soon as it left my hand.  

The main thing I didn't like about the movie is the plot line for Luke.  He has a bad plastic surgery and looks different so he changes his name???  What is up with that?   I guess they had to do that to link it with other Star Wars episodes.  Luke Skywalker changing his name to Jar Jar Binks is just something I can NOT accept.  Now we have the cliffhanger wondering if Luke (Jar Jar) was just acting stupid or did he get brain damage from the plastic surgery.  How long before the next episode movie is out???
