1: Why do the Separatists want Amidala dead if she is the one opposing a military response to the Separatists, and as such is the closest thing to an ally that they have?

It’s made pretty clear that it’s just Nute Gunray seeking petty revenge for the events of the last film.

4: Why does the Republic not know about the army that they ostensibly ordered? Did the cloners not bother to get any confirmation or send any updates?

While it is somewhat unlikely, the idea of it getting lost in bureaucracy over a decade is humorously plausible.

Geez, I think this whole dyad solution is a bit convoluted and unnecessary. The dyad works with Ben and Rey because there’s an actual connection as they communicate the Force regularly and work together in the end to bring down Papa Palpy. Leia does none of that. The whole drawing of attention to her in RotJ feels like a narrative dead-end. You can’t just say “oh btw she’s your Force-sister” and then do nothing with it.

So, how would you remove the connection?

Yoda says there is another. Never elaborate on it. Obi-Wan doesn’t talk about it, Vader taunts Luke out of hiding just by saying he’s led his friends to their deaths and Obi-Wan’s failure is now complete. It can be inferred to be Anakin is the other based on his actions in RotJ. Even without him, I see nothing wrong leaving the audience with a little mystery rather than spelling everything out.

If you need to B*tch about something... this is the place

So class has just ended and I’m starving. I ask my friends if they’re hungry too, and they say they’re gonna eat at one of their apartments. The apartment is 25 minutes away. I have only one hour 'til the last train. No time to dine there, so I settle for their recommendation of ramen place across the street. Alone. I’m there right now waiting for my order. Everyone else is in a group. At least the food seems good and affordable.

Last movie seen

Me watching a movie in class: Wow, this is really fun! It’s a shame we’re only watching the first half hour or so. I should watch the rest some time!

Me watching the full movie five years later: Wow, the movie stopped being good at exactly the point we stopped watching! I can’t even be bothered finishing!

The movie is Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, for those of you wondering.
