each week's supposed to be a different genre. there will be the cutsy kid ones, but also the more mature and darker ones.
Wow, sounds just like the PT, one moment fart joke, the next the mass slaughtering of children. [GL voice]This is a kid's movie, it always has been a kids movie, it is made for kids, adults just don't want to accept that, that is why they don't like Jar Jar, it reminds them that this movie is made for kids... this is a more mature film with much more serious romantic scenes so that young teenage boys will be able to get their girl friend to go see it in the theater with them. Oh yeah, and then there is this scene where a kid watches his mom die, then murders a whole community of humanoid lifeforms. And finally, there is a scene where a little child sees his father decapitated by Samuel L. Jackson. I always kind of wanted to explor the theme of kids watching their parents die, and I thought, hey, it really works for this movie, so I went with it... this is an even more mature film, intended for kids, featuring our hero murdering many children who think he is there to help them, but it is okay because he murdered them in order to save his wife, whom he loves very dearly. Oh yeah, then later he decided to kill her and their unborn child as well, just for the hell of it. Oh yeah, then his best friend cuts off all of his appendages and watches as he bursts into flames and slowly and painfully sinks into a pit of lava. Oh, and finally, to top it all off, his wife lived long enough to give birth to her baby, who just so happened to be two babies, and while there was nothing physically wrong with her, she decided the two little bastards were not worth living for and simply died just for the hell of it, leaving the two new borns orphaned.[/GL voice]
Good quality children's programming through and through. I am most certainly looking forward to the Clone Wars series continuing this trend. One episode they will save Jummyuka, the Kashyykian flying squirrel who falls out of tree and breaks his arm, his dream is to fly again, and with the encouragement and some light hearted lessons from our Jedi friends, Jummyuka's wing heal and the episode ends with him flying off into the sunset. Next episode, Anakin is forced to cut the antenna off of a community of Rodians for failing to cooperate with some Jedi investigation, meanwhile, back on Corescant, Obi-Wan and Mace Windu are forced to torcher some Ithorians who were discovered to have been helping the Seperatists.
Whoa, I just realized that Luke watched evey one of his parents/parenting figures die. In ROTS baby Luke witnesses Padme's last breath, in ANH he sees the charred remains of the people who raised him, then he sees his new mentor Obi-Wan cut down, later, not that he had known Yoda long enough to grow too fond of him, but I am sure watching him suddenly die for no reason must have added salt to the wound, and finally in ROTJ he is reunited with his long lost father, only to watch him die and have to burn his remains. Sucks.
