|Yes, revenge can be boring

Sad, but true. Husband and I went to see Revenge of the Sith today, and while it wasn't a bad movie, it wasn't a great one, either. The main problem was that the story took a backseat to the special effects. Here is my non-spoilery list of annoying things in Revenge of the Sith:
1. Why do Storm Troopers bother to wear armor when they drop like flies whenever they get shot? What kind of cheapo armor are they wearing, anyway? Did they buy it out of the trunk of a landspeeder?
2. Why do Jedi knights bother to fight with light sabers when they can knock each other around with the force? And why do they never seem to remember that they CAN use the force to knock each other around until they've been fighting for twenty minutes?
3. Why don't the basic laws of physics apply in the Lucas universe? There's suspension of disbelief, and then there's distraction due to knowledge of basic sixth-grade science.
4. This is a corallary to 3, but why the heck do ships in space make noise, but the ones flying around the city are silent?
OK, OK, I'll stop. Like I said, it wasn't a bad movie, but it could have been much better. I spent most of the time doing script doctoring in my head.
