Can you be serious? That is over thirty hours of just film time, not to mention the money.

Hey, I was doing my part to get it the highest grossing opening weekend ever. Too bad it was all for naught. Damn you Spider-Man! Anyway, I did say that it was an entire week's pay.

The great thing about the United States is that any American have the freedom to watch or not to watch and can tell others to watch or not to watch at all. It's called the freedom to express informed opinions and it's up to others to take it or not.
PABAAH is entitled to disagree with Hollywood's silly left-leaning approaches to films, IMO.

Hell you could even say it's a futuristic tale of a Roman Republic. It was a great movie btw and people should just take it for what it is, an escape from reality.

I always wondered, where are the Star Wars people now? I mean, it's been a long time since those stories, presumably they've advanced some. I'd like to see what they can do.

You have to admit, the movie does ring of anti-Bushism. And if anyone saw THX-1138, you'd know that Lucas is anti-establishment.
Darth Sidius (Cheney) - Hides in the background and uses other people (Bush) to do the dirty work for him.
Darth Vader/Anakin (Bush) - Power hungry and easily used as a puppet by Darth Sidius (Cheney).
The Jedi Council (The American People or Those who are for Democracy) - The power of the "Force" is the power of many.
And, for Lucas to write in "Those who are not with me...", and ad the line that Obi Wan said afterwards about the Republic and Democracy only cried "anti-Bush".
