Anakin: Good or Bad?
Is anakin good for saving padame or is he bad for becoming Darth Vader?
I think he was good from the beginning Because all he wanted to do was save padame but Darth Sidius went back on his promise to save padame and she died anyway. SO I dont thing that ani s sorta' cracked!

^ i agree
but i think Anakin thought he was doing good *saving Padme* by doing bad *joining the sith*. But then, when padme died, he had no sense to just kill palpy because he didn't do the part of the bargain even though palpy told him that he killed padme ?
anyway, anakin was good all along until the bad thing just engulfed him. Its like when you say a lie then lie again to cover the lie then it becomes bigger and bigger...
IMO that was the best part of EPIII...the first time I actually felt some real passionate movie-making from Lucas since the OT (combination of good plotting and good acting), I could almost feel the temptation and the complete lack of resistance to join with Sidious...thanks to Ian McDarmaid's acting, his evil and allure just oozed off the screen...really effective I thought. Hayden was effective there too...that scene was pivotal and had to be believable for the whole movie, even series to work, and they did it really well.
There was nothing intillectual about Ani's transition, like "hmmm, let me see here..." At that turning point he was in too deep...he had given in to the dark side, and he was too overcome by his desperation for power, for Padme (not letting go)...you know, all that bad non-Jedi stuff.
...what's this...me sticking up for EPIII?
P.S. I don't believe in good or bad people...just people who can overcome things and people who can't...in this situation, Ani couldn't...doesn't make him bad, just unfortunate.
I think this is good. I think Lucas did a good job of expressing the rise of the darkside in Anakin (perhaps I should have phrased this better), but his transition from Jedi to Sith was too quick for my tastes.
I would heve think after killing Mace, he would continue to reject both the Jedi and the SIth (he was already mad at Palps) and then Palps could lure him, even just a little bit more, to get him to "save the republic" or something.
The acting was OK, the lighing on anakin was supurp imo, but Sidious voice makes me think the sound editor's kid was playing with the volume dials during the recording.

Because in Episode 4 GL had the bad guy named Darth Vader. In Episode 5 GL revealed that Darth Vader is Luke's father. So GL in Episode 3 wanted the transformation into Darth Vader to become complete which means he has to take on the name Darth Vader.
as much as I love to psychically explore the cosmos and think of myself as a baby hippopotamus
not really. he wanted to control her and with a rational mind, in ep2, contemplated destroying everything she held dear (whatever works) and
put his own selfish need to keep her alive above her own reason to live.
he was a selfish prick, even when he didnt turn yet. yoda tried to warn him of this.
The only "good" thing Anakin intended was to keep Padme alive. But that was just so he could go around keeping her in the dark, obsessing over her, making himself look like even more of an *sshole than he already was.

I agree He intended to save padame
but what he signed up for was bad from the start
