First, Mist, at no time did I act like I knew more then everyone. Go read it again ok. It was a thread for disussion, and all I said was I think he forgot who and what the sith stand for. They don't give a shit about eachother, or their futures. You were the one that brought post count up out the blue for some strange reason like that somehow makes me wrong. So I guess the more posts you have, the more correct you are? Interesting theory. Again I have to disagree, but to each his own right. Even the guy you defended says that it has no place in a discussion, which it doesn't.
Interesting take, but I tend to disagree. I feel like no matter what Anakin did, or didn't do, the out come would have been exactly the same. I fail to see how Anakin changed anything at all. Palps had a brilliant plan laid out, and he carried that plan out to perfection. Everyone around him were just pawns. It was flawless, Anakin had nothing to do with any of it.
And yeah... Anakin did kill several other Jedi in the temple... the scenes just got cut from the theatrical version. They might get put back in for the DVD. He specifically kills Shaak Ti and Cin Drallig. There is some footage in the movie of Anakin in a hologram killing Cin Drallig and his apprentice. Whether we see it happen or not, it is implied that Anakin did kill many of the jedi besides the younglings.
Yup, I haven't disputed that. I just think the clones could have done it just as easy. I just wish Anakin was portrayed as being a lot stronger, and a lot more invaluable to palpy then they did. But the DVD will kick ass, no doubt. There are so many things they cut that really should be in it. Fuk the kids who can't stay awake long enough for the full version, I want to see it all dammit
I think it would have been nice if there had been more scenes where there was time for reflection on what had happened... kind of like when Anakin is in the temple looking out at Coruscant and Padme looks back at him. Not more bloated dialogue... just quiet scenes that let's the audience realize what has happened. Maybe some more scenes of devastation. A quiet scene where Yoda and Obi-Wan are just thinking about stuff with concerned looks on their faces... that type of thing.
I agree, there really wasn't a helluva lot of time for the characters to just sit back and think about what has happened let alone the audience. Though I think including these small scenes could have been jarring with the fast pace of the rest of the film... Yoda has a nice moment at the end of the film after his duel, but that's it really...
Yeah... I forgot about that... moments where they are meditating are very good in my opinion. It makes them seem more real! I wouldn't want it to jar with the fast paced scenes... but kind of like the empty council room scene... more moments of deep reflection with emotional music before and after major dramatic action pieces would have made this movie better. Instead of being a 2 hour movie, it should have been a 2 1/2 hour movie!
