The plot twist wasn't that great for starters, secondly all SW fabs knew who he was, thirdly it made him a rather superficial character until the plot twist and after that he was just a one dimensional gurgling evil dude.

Only problem was, until the plot twist came in the very last movie those audiences were just getting bored through the whole political drama in Episodes I and II.

LOL Nice thought but I think Unless we here something official, like he's returning in the Live Action series, we can safely assume he died.

A guy who can defeat the Emporer, who unlike Yoda isn't getting too old, would do something more than just hide out.

Hey kids,

It's been awhile. Howz everybody holding up?


Anyway here is my two cents:


ANH
ESB
ROTS
ROTJ
TPM
AOTC

My list hasn't changed in 7 years


I bought the blu rays the day they came out. Love them. I have nitpicks, but whatever. I don't think anyone wants to hear about those?

Oh you know, just keeping it real.


Blu ray nit picks:

Of all things the NOOOOOO, and any of the other changes didn't bug me. They were not necessary, but I think the pros out weigh the cons with this set

I didn't like R2's CGI parts in rotj, that could have done a lot better

Mostly it was nit picky technical stuff that got my hard on, or hard off.

There some seriously distracting stuff in 2004 dvd's that I'm glad was taken care of. I can watch death star escape now with shuddering at the tie fighter fighter boxes, Luke and vader's sabers in rotj look better.

Though like most people: I'm pretty upset that they didn't upgrade Luke's anh lightsaber training scene. It will be fixed for the 3D release, just watch.


Right now I'm finally chilling back and watching all of the extras. I watched some but not all. Now I'm watching all of them.

I think the whole Lucas film archives thing is a cool idea, and it's pretty entertaining to see the models and costumes. Even though whatever camera they used to shoot the beauty shots had two dead pixels.

At any rate you see how much work was put into these films, which helps suppress my own nerdy nitpicks because you just accept the films for what they are.

Sure they could probably look better and sound better, but I'm glad I bought it.

When I'm done watching the extras I have another treat to look forward too. I just bought the Godfather trilogy on blu ray. I've never seen them, but I'm looking forward to it.

I did cherish it. I really enjoyed it, all 3 of them.

Unfortunately I have to agree with the masses that part 3 was weakest. However I'm glad the series had a conclusion, and I liked how it was the culmination from Michael's actions in his life and how it ended up destroying everything around him, even when he was looking for forgiveness.

Just wish Robert Duvall's character was in it

Unlike some film franchises that get resurrected after many years like Terminator, and they try to continue it, shit happens, and then it gets left in Limbo.

Duvall refused to join the old team. Unfortunately...

Yes, it's very much a weaker episodes. It does have a few memorable elements though. Andy Garcia in a great role. Pacino's lovely line: When I thought I was out, they pull me back in. And his death at the end... subtle and tragic.

But GFII is still my favourite, what a great film that is. (Yes GFI is a cinematic highpoint, but to be able to top that with GFII - outstanding).

6. Episode I



I would say
ESB- great story, character development and dramatic
ROTJ- good action, and the redemption of Vader is epic
ROTS- key storyline, well executed fights, shows the fall of Anakin
ANH- good introduction to the universe, fun characters
TPM- good pod race, good duel with Maul
AOTC- the first half is a mess, then the final 45 minutes turns into Apocalypse Now in space. Great war scenes but tough to get through the first 1 1/2 hour to the battle.

I can agree with this. It's strange how AoTC turned out to be worse than TPM considering the second film was more relevant to the plot.

Did you watch the original trilogy beforehand. A lot of people correctly guessed he was the Emperor.

Well, tecnically yes, but that was when I was really little, so I didn't really understand them. When I was a bit older though, I watched the Phantom menace first, & it was more then that I was into Star Wars, & understood it.

I had several ideas for plot twists GL could've used instead of hand feeding the facts to us in the PT.

1) End the PT not knowing that Anakin was Vader. End the PT with Anakin turning evil, killing younglings or other Jedi, even showing the epic battle with ObiWan, but don't show him turning into, or Palpatine naming him, Darth Vader. The mystery of the OT wasn't that Vader was Luke's father, it was that Vader and Anakin were the same person. OB1 throws us off in ANH by saying Anakin was killed by Vader, this is why we were shocked when we learned Vader was his father. At least some of the mystery could've remained.

2) End the PT with the viewer not knowing Padme had the babies. This way we are surprised when we first hear Luke Skywalker's name in ANH. Then doubly shocked when we learn he has a twin sister who was also born/survived.

3) My last idea was to have Palpatine be like a Golem character, 2 sides of the same psyche. He might argue with himself when alone in his throne room. Of course, the "evil" side wins out in the end. That would've given Ian a broader range to portray. And after the first movie (and even more in the second because of Dooku both helping and working against Sidius) I thought maybe Palpatine and Sidius were two different people.

This is all for the sake of anybody who watches the movies 1-6 of course. I felt the PT took away any "plot twists" that happened in the OT.

Vader- "No. I am your Father"
Luke- "I know, I saw the OT"

Personally, I think Episode One should have started with Anakin and OB1 meeting as ambitious, young men. One a Jedi, the other a talented pilot. They are forced or assigned to fight together in the Clone Wars: a friendship grows... Anakin accepts training from OB1, shows exceptional talent as a padawan. And from here on, the fall begins. Something else than mother...

The whole development of Anakin should have spanned three movies during the Clone Wars. I think...
