Worst Dialogue from Revenge of the Sith.
Time

philraid said:

There’s so many lines between Anakin and Padme that I could choose from, but these are the ones that stick out in my mind:

“You are so beautiful.”
“It’s only because I’m so in love.”
“No, it’s because I’m so in love with you.”
“So love has blinded you?”
This is the one scene I consider skipping whenever I rewatch that movie. It’s mercifully short, but that dialogue is painful. And it doesn’t even make sense either, it’s like a line or two got cut.

This 110%. I remember feeling my heart sink to the pit of my stomach the first time I watched that scene. I was still too young to quite recognize the abysmal quality of the dialogue/delivery in TPM & AOTC when I first watched them, but I was finally old enough when ROTS rolled around, and this exchange was a doozy.

Leia is my favorite character in A New Hope. She becomes less interesting in the next two movies because they fail to explore how the destruction of her home affected her, but her bold self-confidence and almost sassy demeanor in the first film never fails to put a smile on my face.

Indeed. Besides, having your home and loved ones nuked to dust would make anyone surly.

If Star Wars was the least bit realistic, all warfare would be done by droids. You wouldn’t put a organic being with imperfect reflexes into the cockpit of a fighter and send them to take out an artificial planetoid and sacrifice their life needlessly if you have the technology to build a robot fighter equipped with a strong AI which isn’t limited by the flaws that flesh is heir to.

In the Prequels there actually was an entire army of droids and fighter-ships with droid or AI pilots. But the movies insist that cloned humans are superior somehow. The excuse is that organic/biological beings are better at thinking creatively which gives them some sort of advantage in combat - a pretty dubious proposition.

I think Lucas really wanted to walk back on strong AI being a thing in SW when he made the prequels, but it’s very hard to legitimately make that the case when we’ve seen Threepio and Artoo act as they do throughout the OT. You can use the Chinese room argument against the droids, but it ruins them as characters in the process.

Attacking others to deflect away from the content of your own posts? Good job!

I think I’ll keep on scrolling past your posts.

Two of us each have a number of forum memberships and social media from years before, a decade even, before joining up here. + Keyan is who he said he is from his pre-covid socials. From your posts it appears you knew that when you made your insult, and then doubled down on it afterwards.

Your claims are something that have previously occurred on here, by others also trying to deflect away from their own actions and posts. Those false claims were disproved then, and these new false claims above have now been disproved above too. According to others here who saw through both the previous and this latest round of horseshit the accusations were made by previously banned users, friends of, or people who’d previously burnt their britches here. Caston & Keyan have already left here, and now me also. This forum is awesome, as nearly all the users are on here, but it does obviously have a small dark poisonous clique, a cancer. I hope that gets cut out or removed, for the benefit of everyone else here and for the forum itself.

I now see why you chose to try and shift the discussion onto slurring others, rather than own the rancid views you posted above. You do you.

Well that’s a blaze of glory departure for oojason and his many dupe accounts. And with broken image links too!

They’ll soon be back. And in greater numbers.

Which Pre-Prequels Anakin you imagined and think would suit the best the Pre-PT Star Wars Universe?
Time

Anakin before joining the Jedi: essentially Luke in SW.

Anakin after joining the Jedi: Luke from SW & TESB with Han’s cockiness and charisma.

Anakin after joining the Sith, but before going full dark side: more reserved like Vader in TESB & ROTJ, minus the sheer ruthlessness.

Honestly…why do I keep coming back to Star Wars (and this site! LoL)? It seems like more of an unhealthy addiction than a real interest of mine at this point!

Same. I’m only following Andor, and it took me a tremendous lot of convincing from the folks who aren’t mindless fanboys easily suckered by lightsabers and fanservice for me to take that leap of faith; my interest in everything else Disney’s put out is in the negative numbers.

I hate Star Wars becoming the Saga of Darth Vader rather than the Adventures of Luke Skywalker, I hate Luke being supplanted and replaced by Vader becoming the lead character. We are supposed to root for a wife killer and child murderer is that it?

Lucas totally lost his sense on the prequel, virgin birth, chosen one prophecy, rules on attachment, midichlorians, Whills, how can people take any of that at face value.

He destroyed Star Wars there was nothing left for Disney to destroy.

While I agree with your points overall, I wouldn’t want Star Wars to JUST be the Adventures of Luke Skywalker. The SW Universe is bigger than any Skywalker, Luke or Anakin.

In Baum just like Middle Earth it exists as a real world, or like Wonderland does in the Alice books.

It’s been a spell since I read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland/Through the Looking-Glass, but I’m 99% sure Wonderland exists only in Alice’s dreams, albeit possibly as a transient sub-reality, if the speculation that Alice herself’s a part of the Red King’s dream is anything to go by.

What do you think of The Prequel Trilogy? A general discussion.

Diminished force powers don’t account for the lack of basic thinking.

Somewhat of an aside, but this is another element in the prequels I really wish was shown rather than told to us. And it could’ve been easily done, just by making the Jedi less powerful than Luke and Yoda were in the OT, with Anakin as an outlier. Instead Lucas uses Bizarro logic.
