Desperate battles against the forces of evil.

I liked it last night a lot more than I did the last time I saw it, a few years ago. It always used to be my least favorite of the trilogy, but now I found myself watching it as a film rather than as a geekfest. I can't even do that with the other two. This one just works differently. It shamelessly manipulates your emotions, where the first two rely more on a "Dude, that's awesome" factor. Although, some of the Attempted Emotion Manipulation doesn't work at all (e.g., the romantic subplot, or anything after the first ending), so it's good they still have enough awesomeness to fall back on.
