Star Wars Returns In 3d - But Does Anybody Care?
There will, of course, be a hard-core of Star Wars fanatics chomping at the bit for the chance to experience the thrill of having light sabres whooshing around above their scalps. And maybe to feel just a little bit closer to Natalie Portman who has been forgiven for her wooden Phantom Menace performance, since she appeared in Black Swan. But the overwhelming response to the three-dimensional re-working of the first of the Star Wars prequels has been one of ambivalence.
Twitter users have displayed varying degrees of scorn, with Evie_Harris joking "Does Star Wars I being in 3D mean the characters are now two-dimensional?" And there are several reminders that a 3D reworking can't ever hide what made the film unpopular amongst many film buffs in the first place: Bianmbendis kindly reminds his followers "no matter what the commercials say Star Wars 3D means 3D Jar Jar. this has been a public service announcement." And even Darth Vader himself, DepressedDarth couldn't muster a smile, announcing that he wouldn't be watching the 3D release because "it's like watching embarrassing movies of yourself as a kid."
