The Circle is Now Complete: This will be a day long remembered. It has seen the end of the Star Wars prequel trilogy, and it will soon see the end of the last Star Wars movie ever.

Yes, I am one of those obsessive Star Wars fans who is salivating to see Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith. I got my Fandango tickets ahead of time for an evening show tonight. And you might have noticed the Star Wars themes in yesterday's blog posts.

I was in college when Episode I came out, and a group of us who worked for the student newspaper spent time saving places in line for weeks so we could see the midnight showing on opening night. We took turns in line, making sure that nobody had to stay there for more than a few hours at a time, giving us time to work, study, and shower. Regardless, we had a great time there. As you can imagine, the line had quite a party atmosphere the whole time, complete with alcohol and other strange chemical substances.

The first two prequel movies have been disappointing, compared to the original trilogy. In fact, it probably would have been better off if the prequels were never made at all, leaving the back story to our imaginations. But this movie is supposed to be much darker and more evil than its predecessors -- and that's gonna be cool!

I don't know what I'm going to do when it's all over. There's going to be a TV series after this movie, but that will never be the same. Plus, I've spent the past few years combing and for spoilers, now I'm going to have to find new ways to procrastinate during the day.
