Some things I learned from George Lucas this past weekend.

If you haven't seen the movie yet, you may want to skip this. I won't give away too much, but still. If you are thinking, "What movie?" Go ahead and read it.

Apologies in advance to my Heather for the nits that I am picking here. Overall I did enjoy the movie and felt there were several parts that were quite cool. But...

Being a Jedi is very bad for your hands.

Darth Vader is vacuum sealed for freshness.

If you have managed to lop three of the limbs off of what could be the greatest enemy to humankind EVER it doesn't hurt to go the extra bit and nudge him with your toe into the lava.

Blue lightning makes you ugly. Avoid the blue lightning.

Being a hermit in the deserts of Tatooine for less than 20 years will seriously age a guy.

Yoda is green and yellow.

Children are actually "younglings" even though my spell checker says "no, no, no."

It's never too cliche to strike a pose with your fists in the air and yell, "Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!"

If everyone in the world already knows how your story is going to end, there's no reason whatsoever to be overly creative in how you get there.

Don't turn your back on a mob of clones with guns.

Commercials lie.

"This is not the prequel you seek."
