    "When the movie Star Wars premiered in 1977, it was both surprising and a revolution in its special effects."

    I've underlined the part that needs fixing. Sra's revision just needs one little tweak -- you need to find an adjective form of "revolution" to go with the adjective "surprising" -- in other words, you need to adjectives, not an adjective and a noun, in order to make this sentence have parallel construction.
