If you thin I am down on Star Wars, read Anthony Lane’s review in the

5/23 New Yorker. He is especially good on Yoda: “No, the one who gets me

is Yoda. May I take the opportunity to enter a brief plea in favor of his

extermination? Any educated moviegoer would know what to do, having watched

that helpful sequence in ‘Gremlins’ when a small sage-colored beastie is fed

into an electric blender.” Delicious… though wasn’t it actually a

microwave oven?
