Star Wars on H&R

To follow up my questions and philosophical objections to Star Wars III, Hit and Run has developed an interesting string of comments regarding the politics surrounding the movie.

The only real objection I can see to the separatist movement is the fact that the Sith is traditionally duplicitous in their motives and could be selling the beauty of freedom and capitalism and peace simply in order to grab more power. Then, of course, the dictatorship that they also proffer as times certainly doesn't seem like a viable option, either.

More than anything, this is just a film, and one with poorly written dialogue at that. If Lucas couldn't handle dialogue, what is to say that he had any real political insight outside of his backhanded jabs to the Republican party?
