Another Star Wars Post, Sorry

As painful as bits of Episode I are, its soundtrack really is excellent. In some ways, I think the soundtrack is "over-qualified" for the movie -- "Duel of the Fates" sounds like something awesome is going to happen at any moment, so you sit there getting revved up by the soundtrack and wondering why the movie keeps not living up to it. (At least until the lightsaber battle at the end, anyway -- which is only partially marred by the realization that Anakin did in fact just say "oops" and win the day by dumb luck.)

Heck, listening to "Duel of the Fates" while I work makes this stupid government website I'm building seem like it's going to somehow be exciting and vitally important at any moment. (This of course just adds to the mental disconnect when it never actually is.)
