Revenge of the Sith

Written By: Gary on May 22, 2005 4 Comments

So I really enjoyed the movie. It really tied together a lot of the loose ends. I’m sure there are a lot of unanswered questions still but it probably wraps up most of the questions. We saw it on Friday afternoon and there wasn’t much of a crowd, I guess the die-hard fans all skipped work/school the day before or when the the midnight show the day before.

It was very violent though. Before I saw it some TV review said the final battle (Obi-wan and the soon-to-be Darth) was really violent (and to take your kids up for popcorn then) but I though the others were more so, especially the implications of the scenes not seen. Anakin has some serious mental health issues, he’d be on some serious meds if he didn’t live so far far away (and a long time ago).

The special effects were awesome, everything seemed very real. Some of the scenes were way too busy though with all the ships and stars and laser beams floating all around.

And I know Natalie Portman can act, so why didn’t they let her?!?

Two minor spoiler: The tiny little globes with the buzz-saws why didn’t they just blow-up instead of sawing. When did R2 get all the extra gizmos and the maneuverability? (Actually the real question is when did he lose it?)

    R2 is now on the rebel side, right? So as his parts break, he doesn’t have ready access to replacements. Or Capt. Antilles’ ship is out in the boonies somewhere that they don’t have a lot of droid parts, or he simply can’t afford it. Mebbe.

    Maybe the buzz-droids were actually developed for use at dismantling stations to recycle dead ships (like the places we have in the far east that dismantle computers and whatnot), and the droids got re-purposed as attackers. I just read that troops in Iraq have been using little toy RC cars to test for IDE’s… we run the car over to a suspicious container at the side of the road and ram it. If the container falls over, it’s just a light, empty container. If it doesn’t fall over, then it’s more suspicious. If it explodes, you’ve lost an RC car.

    I liked seeing Obi-wan pick up Darth’s fallen light-saber, knowing what its destiny was.

    Why did Yoda give Obi-wan an assignment for his stay on Tattooine, other than watching over Luke? Was that training for his own demise?

    He totally has a point. The rebels didn’t have access to a lot of replacement parts and stuff, so Artoo’s cool jets must have eventually just rusted away over time.

    As for Obi-Wan learning how to communicate from beyond, I don’t think he knew that he was preparing for his death; I think it was just something that Yoda thought would be important for him to learn since he was watching over Luke.

    I really like the spare parts for R2 scenario. It’s perfect and ties in with what we know about the future history.

    The buzz droids being repurposed makes sense, but I think (unless you had a million in storage) it’d still be cheaper to put in bombs and keep the nice little motors and titanium (adamantium?) blades for their real purpose.

    Was it a dead Jedi’s power that allows them to communicate with Luke or was it Luke’s great(er) power that allowed him to sense it? (I can’t remember if Leia could see the others after they died).

    An even bigger question… why in the heck didn’t Annie and Obi use The Force to push the Buzz Droids off their ship? Did they suddenly forget how? Does The Force not work in space?

    Yet another horrid Lucas plot-hole big enough to drive a Super Star Destroyer through. Did he let anybody with a lick of sense read the script before he shot this stuff?? Apparently not.
