@vaderito @Rogue Rey

Oh, he is much much worse....first he comes up with all sorts of un-jedi ideas involving assassination, learning the dark side and consorting with sith.....then when his plan fails, he washes his hands off the whole thing and again makes suggestions involving arrest and murder....and when poor Ventress died and saved the jedi council from having blood on their hands, he makes such patronizing remarks that even a polite guy like Obi-wan had to tell him off.

Mace is the worst. With the Jedi like him who needs the Sith?  Laughing  

Though Palp is right. One needs to learn both Dark and Light.

The best on of the prequels.

Dark and omnius as it should be.

Some bits I liked the most (not having DVDs - but I ll join in the full coverage next week end with OT):

Order 66 - really moved me - almost cried in the cinema - especially Yoda s reaction (very similar to Leia s in TFA).
Hayden was good. Natalie not so much.

Palpatine evil and intelligent as hell.

Grevious was waste of time (I even did not remember his name - I used to call it: a strange droid who coughs too much. some bronchitis or something worse? lol

I like the callback with Obi killing him with blaster .- and his face of disgust while doing it. "So uncivilized"

The end with birth of Leia and Luke - seems a bit rushed to me. Not emotional impact I was hoping to get.

Drath Vader s "noooooooo" - the worst line in SW ever.

Liked the duel OBI vs Anakin. Nice score by JW. And emotional as hell. Interesting thing to consider: Obi was sent there by Yoda to kill Anakin- and he was struggling with this other all the way the duel. And failed to kill him at the end. This was nicely done.

@Darth_Awakened I think that "she lost the will to live" soured everything (a true eye-roller) so birth of new hopes got overshadowed. hence no desired impact.

Definitely. Totaly out of character, out of everything.
But I did like funeral sequence - it was sad yet beautiful.

@Armadeus wrote:Interestingly, enough, back when ROTS first came out I got my hands on the comic book adaptation before I saw the film, and in the comic, Anakin is much harsher to Padme in the Mustafar scene. Not only does he Force choke her, but when he sees Obi-Wan emerge from the ship he hurls Padme against a nearby wall. It's implied that the trauma from that blow was a contribution to her death.

Lucas should have put that in the movie, to show how far Anakin had fallen to the Dark Side.

This is a great essay detailing the depth of thought and symbolism Lucas put into ROTS!

It really is one of the best Star Wars movie period.

Did Inadequate Women’s Healthcare Destroy Star Wars’ Old Republic?

Shortly after Padme announces to him that she’s pregnant, Anakin has a dream that she dies while giving birth. The dream feels similar the same one he had about his mother before she died. “It’s just a dream, honey,” Padme tells him the next morning. “Yeah, okay,” he replies, but the man never regains his chill.

He seriously spends two hours of the movie freaking out about his wife’s uterus, and hypes himself up so much that he gets to the point of slaughtering tiny tots in a Jedi temple. All because he can’t think of another way to save Padme from reproductive health complications.

Why didn’t they just go to a goddamned obstetrician-gynecologist?

Fairly good theory on what Obi Wan meant when he told his Padawan "It's over Anakin.  I have the high ground."  And why it was the beginning of the end for daddy Skywalker.
