WITH LEIGH PAATSCH

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - NEWS -

Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci are child­hood friends who rise through the ranks of or­gan­ised crime with­out the proper pedi­gree. Once again, a lack of re­spect for the time-hon­oured ways of the mob tele­graphs their demise. Co-stars Sharon Stone and James Woods.

SATUR­DAY

STAR WARS: EPISODE III – RE­VENGE OF THE SITH 7PM, SEVEN Ge­orge Lu­cas wraps up his sec­ond Star Wars tril­ogy in fine style. As Anakin Sky­walker (Hay­den Christensen) suc­cumbs to the dark side of the Force and the last cru­cial pieces of the epic mytho­log­i­cal jig­saw fall into place, an awe­some power takes hold and noth­ing is held back. Yes, it is vi­o­lent (par­ents with pri­mary school­ers should take heed) and the flaws of the last two films are still in ev­i­dence, but the grandeur, ex­cite­ment and magic of the Star Wars ex­pe­ri­ence re­main in­tact. Co-stars Ewan McGre­gor and Natalie Port­man.
