    If you hated the p.t and told G.L he raped your childhood and now you hate the s.t. you only have yourselves to blame for G.L selling star wars to Disney. You crybabies need to get a life.

    Seriously what is with you hardcore Star Wars fans. And complaining about the choreography lightsaber battles. And the CGI.
    It stupid complaining about that shit.
    I think it because of you hardcore fans. That Lucas sold Star Wars to Disney.

    The choreographing in the final battle gives me the impression of master and pupil who know each other’s strategy’s inside and out

    Lucas made the mistake of starting the films with Anakin being a small boy...He could have avoided so much crap by just explaining the prior events in the opening crawl. ANAKIN'S character would have been soooooo much more mysterious that way.

    From watching the OT, I had always assumed that it was the corrupting influence of using the dark side too much that made the emperor look the way he did. It was a letdown to see that it was basically reflected lightning...

    To be perfectly honest. Revenge of the Sith is in my top 3 Star Wars movies. I completely agree that it has quite a cringy script but yea. Overall I will stand by the fact that the prequels have a much more interesting concept and story than the originals.
    1. Episode 5
    2. Revenge of the Sith
    3. Rogue One

    I think you miss the point about the final duel here anakin and ओबी वन आर मास्टर एंड padawan सो दे know each other's moves in the duel and are perfectly choreographed... Its polished like two experts fighting the empire was more of raw Luke vs an overpowering Vader... I love both the duels

  • RabidTardigrade

    See I’ve always preferred the way the prequels handle lightsaber fights. To me, it makes perfect sense that it’s so fast and flashy. They’re semi psychic space ninja wizards. They would be very quick both attacking and simultaneously block and anticipate the enemies attacks. The way the old movies and sequel trilogy just hack and slash at each other like literally anybody and their mom could do is just boring. They don’t feel like powerful beings. I agree they can get rid of the pointless twirling. Yoda and Palestine’s battle was better about that. Every swing had a purpose unlike a lot of anakin and obiwans. The cgi trailers for the old kotor games did it perfectly though. That’s the proper balance. But if I had to pick one preferred style I’d have to pick the prequels.

    The prequels capture star wars so perfectly, but are so cheesy. However, memes made us all love these movies deeply. I have made the memes intertwined with the film itself. These movies will always be loved by us fans.

    I think the prequels are easily the best of the franchise period. The score and duels are epic and make ample use of franchise elements like light sabres and the force manipulation

    I have have this movie more than my fair share of times and I had no idea that the millenuem falcon was in. I highly recommend the ROTS novel as they expand upon most of the issues that you had with the movie, namely Sidious' reaction to his new face. As for Obi-wan's lack of emotion, the Jedi have been trained to mask their feelings since childhood so it doesn't feel too out of place.

    Honestly most of the shit you said makes no sense and/or have an explanation. You don’t know shit about movies idiot. Like Hayden’s acting was amazing, the battle between Anakin and obi wan was perfect. 2 super powered beings battling it out would look like this.

    I must disagree! I think Episode 3 is much the worst of the prequel trilogy. Everything in it is just absurd and silly.

    I kinda like cinema wins explanation of Padmé's death, where Anakin has become so powerful in the dark side that he had unlocked a power similar to Darth Plagueis, but instead he is stealing life from Padmé to keep himself alive

  • Brandon Wiesner

    There's very little that can be argued about this being the best of the prequels. It's also a really good movie. Yes some of the things are puzzling. Anakin submitted to Palpatine pretty quickly. The dialogue between Anakin and Padme were cringey but thankfully they cut it down considerably from AOTC. Vader's birthing scene was ruined by the "nooooooo!" which for some reason, they felt they should edit into the latest version of ROTJ. Also yeah, the way Padme died was kind of odd. However, there have been recent studies that say you can actually die from a broken heart. The man she loved, became evil, turned against her and she was having his babies. I think that would probably qualify. Yes, the battle on the volcanic planet was very much like executing a memorized dance routine but it was really cool seeing them going all out like that. That's one thing I think the prequels have the edge over the OT on, the saber battles are a lot more skill-enduced. It almost makes you wonder where Anakin's skill with a saber went once he became Vader. He was very slow moving and relied more on his force powers.

    I'm not going to go into which SW movies I thought this one was better or worse than, other than its 2 predecessors, because it really doesn't matter. What does matter is, this movie is often unfairly lumped into the same category as the other prequels as the George Lucas' massive brain fart. I think this movie was very well done and has a lot to offer to fans of the OT and of a good story. Because the story of Anakin becoming Vader and the Empire taking shape is the one thing the OT could have benefited from but didn't. I guess though, they always had this idea in mind, since ANH was Ep IV.

    Okay, I just wrote a (slightly overpassionate) cooment on your TPM review. I accused you of being ignorant to some facts not noticing I was ignorant to some of your argumentations. My bad, I'm sorry.
    But still, I'd like to point out that the prequel trilogy heavily relied on practical effects and sets, most of the time in composites with mattes and/or CGI, which is the exact same as they did in the OT.

    iAMurSNIPPER Month ago

    Honestly not bothered about obi wans lack of emotional response. He was a pro Jedi. They didn't show emotion. Then you see it at the end, he lets it all out. So powerful.

  • Travis TWP
    Travis TWP Month ago +1

    The reason The High Ground was so significant was because he didn't have The High Ground on Darth Maul in episode 1 and Anakin tried performing the same move Obi-Wan did over over Maul but Obi-Wan knew how to defend that because Obi-Wan's Force Powers were mainly used for defense.

    I know this video's old but I have some stuff that still bothers me. 1) No more quoting dialogue please, it's like one of those jokes someone says to you in a conversation and you're required to laugh otherwise you both stare at each other awkwardly; they just don't work. 2) Palpatine was supposed to be bad at lightsaber duels because he focused on the force and disliked using a lightsaber; so it makes sense that he was not the most skilled at it and why he lost to Mace. 3) I think the final duel works choreographed because Anakin and Obi-Wan were like brothers, they knew each others styles and how they fought in duels; although I agree more dialogue would've been nice. Maybe Anakin could have tried turning Obi-Wan to the dark side with him idk. Still a good video

    Revenge of the Sith is better than both new Star Wars movies which are nothing more but overrated shit by official critique. I dont care what anyone says, Im old school Star Wars fan and when it comes about star wars movies, TOP 3 Star Wars movies in my opinion: 1. Empires strikes Back, 2. Revenge of the Sith, 3. New Hope.

    Can’t believe it took me THIS long to finally find these gems!
    But dude! You NEED to listen/read the ROTS novelization/audiobook.
    It is THE definitive episode 3.
    It’s not only one of the best Star Wars boos ever written but a legitimately AMAZING novel in its own right. Idk if you’ll see this comment, 4 years later from when this video was made. But if you do, I cannot recommend ROTS audiobook enough.
