REVIEW - Star Wars III & XBOX Forza Motorsport - No Movie Spoiler

Its good to know people in the movie industry, outside of porn that is.

Well folks I have to tell you, its a feast for the senses. Any fan of the Star Wars franchise will not be displeased with this effort. A true rabid fan of the franchise can pretty much surmise what needs to happen in order for "Episode IV" storyline to complete itself. You will not be dissappointed in the imagery that is needless to say very up to Lucas standards. I plan on seeing at McClurg Court in a THX setting.

As the A-Team saying goes, "I love it when a plan comes together."

As a side note, when I came home, my roommate had went out a got my copy of XBOX's Forza Motorsport. Giving up a few hours sleep to try this simulator on was not, repeat not, a wasted effort. If you own XBOX and want to see what it can really do as far as graphics, physics, etc...GET THIS GAME.

The Road America track in Forza is quite accurate looking, from comapring video. I'm playing that track a lot lately so I can learn the turns for the 5/31 NESBA day...

BTW, the website has a video that shows a (i forget which one) live track versus the rendered track and it is very well done.

McClurg Court? I thought theater was closed down about two years ago.

As for me, I'm going to attempt to see it at SOW in DLP.

Just when I though last night's Weezer show was the best grouping of nerds I've ever seen, Star Wars III is almost released... LOL
