I’ll try keeping it short. Basically I really like Revenge Of The Sith but a few things almost ruins it for me, and are keeping me from really loving it. You all heard the complaints, so no need to explain.
But I would say the main thing that I hate in the movie is Anakin killing children. How can a man whose story is about redemption be redeemed when he killed children. I think it’s the biggest thing that ruins Anakin’s character in the prequels, not the whining or the sometimes questionable acting, but this 10 seconds where we see him enter that room. If this short scene was cut, and references to “youglings” just be replaced by “Jedi” or “Padawans”, I would like the film much better. So this things are doable with edits. But I came up with an idea (maybe it has already been suggested by someone, I don’t remember if I read it somewhere or came up with it myself, in this case, I didn’t “come up” with the idea, but I’ll just share it anyway) that could make it even better, but unfortunately not doable with edits.
So another complaint I have with the movie, that goes hand to hand with the one I already described, is that we didn’t get to see Darth Vader really “hunt down the Jedi” as Obi-Wan said in Star Wars. Going to the Jedi Temple isn’t really hunting them down. So what I suggest is that when Palpatine tells Darth Vader to go to Mustafar to kill the separatists leaders, is changing that part of the scenario. Instead of the separatists, it is the remaining Jedi that have escaped Order 66 and are hiding there. You could imagine something like all the separatists got killed on Utapau by the Clones. Anakin/Darth Vader goes to Mustafar like in the movie but instead we get a nice scene with him fighting a few Jedi and killing them, showing how powerful he is and making Obi-Wan’s claim in Star Wars of him hunting the Jedi more close to the truth. Then Obi-Wan arrives to Mustafar to regroup with the last Jedi only to find them all killed, and the following is just like the movie.
This is basically my headcannon now. What do you think?
TL;DR: Anakin doesn’t kill children, and the guys he kills on Mustafar aren’t the separatists leaders but surviving Jedi that are hiding there
