My blog is quickly turning into a movie review blog =P
Just finished watching the whole Star Wars series (1-6). Took a whole week! Last time I watched it was when I was 5 or something, so this is effectively the first time, though I still remember some of the story.
And I still don’t know who Anakin’s father is.
Many people feel sorry for Anakin, but I think he is just a big baby. Sure, some bad things happened to him. Well, that tends to happen when you just go around killing people you don’t like.
On the other hand, I really like Padme. And not just because she is pretty!
We have seen way too many brainless females in films. Good to see her for a change.
She does have very questionable taste, though. I mean, Anakin? Really? She could do so much better! Get Jabba the Hutt or something.
On a slightly more serious note, it’s interesting to see how Star Wars has all the mighty females. Padme and Leia. Maybe they wanted to use that to balance the attention given to the Jedis? Girls do all the diplomatics, guys kill all the way. Sounds like a plan.
And the droids… I like R2D2. Silence is golden. Even better if you can shoot fire.
Padme has a REALLY large wardrobe! If you’ve only seen her scenes you’ll probably mistake it for Sex and the City. Apparently many of her costumes are based on traditional outfits of royalties around the world. Very cool!
The only place I’ve seen stormtroopers hit something that moves was at the beginning of ep4, when they boarded Princess Leia’s ship. They never hit anything ever since.
The only 2 characters that made it through the whole 6 episodes are Palpatine (senator, chancellor, then emperor) and Yoda. And R2D2 (although it was never confirmed whether it was the same R2D2). C3PO doesn’t count because he was killed and revived many times.
