Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones
(TV2, astro ch 102 / HyppTV ch 102, 10pm) i hate sand. it gets between my toes and when i try to shake it loose, 98-pound weaklings at the beach think i’m kicking it in their faces. Umm, well, anakin Skywalker hates sand too, but he loves Padme, and it’s too bad that the great John Williams composed such a great love theme for such an agonisingly bad romantic interlude. Sometimes i have nightmares about floating pears. The Separatists continue their attacks on the republic, so someone orders up a huge clone army to fight them. Hayden christensen joins the cast as a teenage anakin, christopher Lee plays a villain whose name sounds like a malaysian fruit, and Frank Oz steps aside so yoda can go all cGi for his duel with dooku.
