Review Revenge of the Sith?

> Hey Scott,
> I've found your reviews of Phantom Menace ( and Attack of the Clones ( online, but no Revenge of the Sith? Did you do a review? If not, general thoughts on the film?

Sith was actually the only Star Wars movie I never saw in the theater, oddly enough.  I liked it well enough, but its just so unrelentingly dark for what should have been a relatively happy wrap for the trilogy. I guess the problem is that we know where it had to end up. Still it was easily the best of the prequels.

Booking WrestleMania 32

As wrestling fans in general, and the internet wrestling community in particular, we are usually second guessing booking decisions of the current product, and retro booking big shows from the past.    With that said, this year's coming Wrestlemania is shaping up to be a disappointment compared to efforts in year's past.  A lot of it has to do with the staleness of the current product, injuries to some of the bigger stars of the roster, and my favorite current meme, "Vince is gonna Vince".

As I'm sure a lot of other people are already doing, I've been thinking of ways to make the show more entertaining than it's currently shaping up to be.  Now before I go much further, let me stress that I'm working with the knowledge that Daniel Bryan won't be cleared to go, and the rest of the injured won't be healthy either.
Here is what part of the card is expected to be:

WWE Championship - Triple H vs. Roman Reigns

Brock Lesnar vs. Bray Wyatt

Undertaker vs. Braun Strowman

WWE Diva's Championship - Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks

Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn

Now let's get to the meat of this, and take a look and a few of the things I would do to shake it up....
