  Nice to see Star Wars II  getting some love, around here.  Many a kid walked out of the theater in tears in 1980 after seeing that movie, I'll tell ya.  It was so damn downcast...

  Taste..?  Nah.  You can call yourself a Renaissance man.  The melding of Star Trek  and Moby Dick  was a masterstroke...groove ;) on...
