    Should have just skipped the events of episode 1 and 2 and had episode 1 be about Annikan already an adult and gradually turning to the dark side. I wanted to see Vader killing Jedi and fighting Obi-wan again but have Obi-wan flee with the start of the rebellion. Also it would have been better rated R.

    Why did palpatine have the Vader suit already? Anakin was just burned, but he had the entire vader costume ready to go for this exact moment. Would had made a lot more sense to have a prototype suit first

    They could have given Padme some kind of sickness, which would add to Anakin’s motivation to saving her, and would give a more substantial reason for her passing.

    I always thought it would be better if Anakin was the one who killed most of the Jedi Masters instead of the clones. 1. There’s no way six clones can kill a Jedi Master. 2. It would show how powerful Anakin is now that he has tapped into the dark side. 3. It would hold a lot more emotional weight for Anakin to kill his former friends and mentors.

    Revenge of the Sith is like Attack of the Clones on steroids... Anakin and Obi Wan's duel is so over the top it's absurd.

  • Jenkin's Jallopy
    Jenkin's Jallopy 29 days ago

    How come Anakin says that killing Dooku is not the Jedi way? Obi wan killed Darth Maul and Greivous, Mace Windu tried to kill Palpatine and killed Jango Fett, even Yoda killed two clone troopers. Killing was never against the Jedi way, even killing for revenge, because Obi Wan killed Maul for that reason, and he got rewarded by the council.

    I don't really get why people think that Episode 3 is any different than the prequels. Maybe the idea behind it is more interesting than the others, but It's still made under the same bad execution.

  • marcos laureano

    Sorry lol, but another thing is the reason why Anakin and Obi Wan's fight looked so choreographed at least according to Lucas was because Obi Wan taught Anakin and they had dueled against each other everyday for hours and years of this helped them to know each other's moves inside and out so it kinda makes sense that one move would flow into the next and the next. I liked it better than that broadsword type of lightsaber dueling that Disney has come up with. Ugh, Kylo swings his saber like it weighs as much as Mel Gibsons broadsword in Braveheart. I mean damn it's a LIGHTsaber, the weight is literally in the handle. I love the prequel duels WAY more than anything I 've seen in the new movies and the original trilogy duels were good for their time.

  • marcos laureano
    marcos laureano Month ago

    Also another thing I learned about this movie is that a lot of the dialogue scenes were done in one take. Sam Jackson even said Lucas would film them going through their lines, a rehearsal take I guess, and then he'd yell cut and be like "ok next!". I guess when you have THAT much CGI and effects to take care of, dialogue comes second. Idk if it's true but I saw a video somewhere that showed that the new Disney movies actually have way more CGI and that Lucas did use a LOT of sets and miniatures but would CGI the crap out of them, which is a shame because it made everything look so clean and digital.

  • marcos laureano

    Little piece of lore - Palpatine's face looked like that for YEARS. He'd been masking himself with Sith alchemy for quite a long time. The lightning helped but it wasn't what deformed him. As a Star Wars fan you know that heavy use of the Dark Side messes you up physically - especially when you're the MOST powerful Sith Lord in the GALAXY, so it kinda makes sense that he really wouldn't look like a kindly old man.

  • marcos laureano

    One of the biggest things I loved about ROTS is that it picks up EXACTLY where the Clone Wars micro series left off. The first 20 minutes of this movie is absolutely breath taking for the most parts, some of the dialogue was kinda cringe worthy but for the most part it may be, after Empire, the best first 20-25 minutes of any Star Wars movie. I'm a fan of Phantom Menace and I never understood why so many people hated it even after watching it recently. The original Star Wars was very slow for the most part up until they meet Han Solo. Lots of talking, lots of setting up the second half of the movie. I mean the finale of Phantom Menace was awesome. Darth Maul vs Obi Wan and Quigon was absolutely classic. And I mean, Star Wars movies have never been Tarantino-like when it comes to dialogue anyway. And I loved how the prequels dove deeper into the lore of Star Wars and the Jedi in particular. Great review man. Thanks for another excellent vid dude.

    Another great part about that Palpatine scene, is that he is talking about Darth Plagueis, who was his master in the past. Great scene for anyone who knows that specific piece of backstory.

It's NOT you, I am just not a Star Wars fan (and I was 17 when it came out -- 58 now).

    I’m not sure if it’s canon but I’m pretty sure sheev Palpatine made padme die to make Darth Vader feel hatred and anger, making him a stronger sith and user of the dark side of the force.

  • Two Rivers Longbow Champion

    I've never bought the whole Padme losing the will to live BS. I'd rather think that Palpatine somehow used the Force to drain her life force just so he could blame her death on Anakin, to cement his conversion. Although I would've preferred that Padme survived but had to fake her death to protect her children from Darth Vader, and secretly lived under Bail Organa's protection; it would be more in line with how Leia had memories of her mother (I can't buy that Leia could remember Padme from within the womb or right as she was born, too much of a stretch)

  • Reynik Namyrion
    Reynik Namyrion Month ago

    To be fair, the Palpatine/Windu confrontation was HEAVILY rushed in production. They had initially wanted something grander involving all of the Jedi Masters there but at the last minute Lucas decided he wanted Ian McDiarmid to do all of the fight scene on his own, to 'enhance the performance' or whatever nonsense. He didn't want no stunt double. Nuh-uh.
    McDiarmid had to learn to do the whole thing on his own in a very short span of time, not to mention the incredible strain on the rest of the crew. As a result, instead of a brilliant fight scene we got... this.

    Actually, it wasn't the lightning deforming his face. It's actually just a facade of his younger self to cover up how the darkside has deformed him from that point. That face IS his real face.

    I hate to say it when it comes to the choreography light saber fighting scenes- those actors are white men, they are not dancers, they have very little dancing experience or flare- they're regular white dudes and we all know regular white dudes are not this most rhythmic or your elk.
    So the choreography is going to be very apparent. I think they did a good job for two rhyme-less white boys. Had it been Justin Bieber and Justin Timberlake it wouldve been 100 percent better cause those two white boys got it...

    The scene where Anakin makes the turn to the Dark Side RUINED the movie for me. When Palpatine/Sith Lord is lying on the ground and whimpering as he begs Anakin to kill Mace Windu is the worst moment in film history. Suddenly, Anakin throws Windu out the window? In my view, that did not represent someone turning to the Dark Side. It showed me someone who wimped out out of fear, not out of some influence from the Dark Side. The rest of the movie didn't matter to me at that point. I disagree, I don't think the movie is as good as you say. It was ruined by the "turning scene". Which, for me, just meant the entire beginning trilogy was trash.
    Episode I had the scene, that was clearly inspired by the Obi Wan / Darth Vader fight where Obi Wan "dies", in which Young Obi Wan, the Sith warrior guy, and Qui Gon Jinn fight and Qui Gon is killed. And there were many other moments throughout the film that just seemed derivative of past Star Wars movies. AND that kid!! The WORST casting choice ever! The kid was horrible.
    Episode II, The Attack of the Clones was OK, but, mostly forgettable.
    Episode III, again, had the crappy scene where Anakin "turns". So, in my view, Episode I-III were basically garbage. I give it a D-.

    God damnit. I never have and never will understand how the turn is abrupt. Like, if you paid attention to the dialogue him killing mace windu makes sense and after that he can't turn back. Like, he just killed a fucking Jedi master, that's it. He can't be a Jedi anymore. He now has the choice to go to prison or die and let that be for nothing and let padme die, or he can embrace what just happened and try to complete his objective.

    The main reason why I watch Star Wars is for the Battles, I think they did a good job with Qui Gonn Jinn and Obi-Wan vs Darth Maul, A good job with telling the story of the clones in Star Wars 2 Attack of the Clones, the Battle of Geonosis is one of my favorite Battles in Star Wars, to come to a close, I don't like Star Wars because of the Plot, I like it because of the Battles, lastly, I like all the star wars movies because of the Battles.

    George Lucas has legitimately good ideas. All of the moments in the prequels that work are clearly due to that. He also needs people around him raining him in and pointing out garbage (editors in other words but in real life) to let the brilliant stuff come through.

    I feel like a C is too high for this. Personally, I'd give a 5/10 (a C), for the flaws that it has are still atrocious. I agree that it's the best out of the prequels (which isn't at all saying much) and that it is bearable to a degree. However, the poor sets, writing, dialogue, etc still make it unworthy of a B in my opinion. To be honest, I thought A New Hope is a B worthy movie (not saying it's bad, but it it isn't as good as some think).

    i feel like people who hate on this trilogy jump on the bandwagon of hate from butt-hurt old star wars fans who wanted nothing but nostalgia. And wanted to hate it to begin with and started nitpicking the film haha. What they should really hate is the new trilogy episodes 7, 8, and eventually 9; but really 7 because it's a carbon copy of episode 4 and nostalgia fans loved My GOD. Plus Anikan v Obi-wan is the best and longest fight i have ever seen.
