In Defence of Revenge of the Sith

Join Ian, Will, Wend and Rob for the latest and funniest instalment of “In Defence of” so far! They thoroughly enjoy discussing and bravely defending the final part of the Star Wars prequel trilogy, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, written and directed by George Lucas. Featuring another phenomenal score by maestro John Williams, Revenge of the Sith ended the saga on a high, but has been unfairly tarnished over the years from it’s place in the prequel trilogy. We look past this and judge the film on it’s own merits, of which it has many. May the force be with all of us on this one!
