Avoiding the blandishments of the Dark Side

A final final act of randomness.. I promise. As the end middle of the road is reached in Cannes, George Lucas is starting on the revisionism (and excuses).. while the Guardian wittily [IMO] asks “Could you be a Jedi knight?”. Elsewhere, Donald Clarke, Irish Times film critic, gives his verdict on the final part of the Star Wars saga[Realplayer audio file] – “I have to have a colonoscopy once every few years and the last six I’ve had to go and see one of these things about as often.. at least you’re sedated for the medical procedure..”

Oh yeah.. my score on the Guardian Quiz?

You scored 9 out of a possible 10.

Jedi master. The Force is indeed strong in you, but remember, pride is one of the paths to the Dark Side. Do not become arrogant in your achievement, or believe that anyone is impressed. They’re not.

    I am getting a bit bored of Star Wars, Saw attack of the clones on Saturday on RTE1 it was ok ish.
    Has anybody seen the nordy/Irish movies run on TV3 lately. Very poor acting and story line.

    I got 10 out of 10 in the Jedi quiz, even though I was never into Star Wars much as a kid or adult. I’ve only seen the films once each. So you can’t really tell me to get out more!

    Maybe I was just lucky.

    Ever see ‘The adventures of Milo and Otis’ Pete ?

    Which question on the quiz did you miss? I am, apparently, a Jedi master also – it beats the day job! I wonder if that makes my girlfriend a Jedi mistress? 🙂

    I still refuse to accept the Guardian’s claim that Darth Brooks is not a real Dark Lord of the Sith.
