I don’t need to see more Vaderbot.
This is the story I was looking for
I can go about my business of seeing it repeatedly and geeking out over merchandise
*** SPOILER ALERT***
Dear Emperor George-atine:
If it’s Sunday, it must be time to pay to see Star Wars just to pimp your enormous, wrinkly, lightning bolt-powered ego.
In a word: loved it.
OK, that’s two, but in your universe, it counts as one, dammit. Here are my bitch points –
1 – Dooku gets the Highlander treatment? Not much of a stand for your Jedi principles there Ani boy.
2 – WTF is with all the amputations, by the way.
3 – Real scenery would have been nice
4 – Continuity was a little heavy handed. I dunno if young Captain Antilles really needed to show up on the same ship used in #1/IV. Does no one trade in their old ships in space? Does no one move up?
Young Tarkin? At least he is on another ship.
Leia music and Luke music? *rolleyes*
Thankfully, Jimmy Smits said *I’m keeeping the robots* and ordered 3PO’s memory wiped, which skirted one big ass plot hole.
5 – The death star? WTF? It takes 20 years to complete the first one, since we only see part of the skeleton in Revenge of the Sith. How come bigger, better Death Star II (electric boogaloo) gets built so fast between IV and VI?
6 – Anakin gives in to the emperor pretty quick. BTW, a c-section would have solved all of this *my wife will die on childbirth so I need to turn to the dark side to kick my super powers up a notch* business. Wouldn’t it?Are there no OB/GYN’s in space?
“Sorry people, Darth Vader is going to kick your ass for the next 26 years because Padme’s HMO REALLY fucked up with the ‘not medically necessary'” bullshit.
7 – Who put Anakin out after he burst into flames? What happened to his arm and legs, which were gone by the time the Emperor showed up?
8 – Do these fools have air conditioned robes or something? You’re on a lava planet – take off the sweater.
9 – The Anakin-bot building is rushed. Building the 6 million dollar man takes some planning – take your time showing it. Also, why not put out the fire and get him out of the cinders before major Steve Austin treatment. If he needs a breathing apparatus in the suit, why not on while on the table.
9a. – Who puts their new robot boy into full dress badass uniform complete with cloak, while he is bolted to the table. Also, bolted to the table? Say what?
10- Star Wars geeks are creepy. People were getting all wiggly in their seat when R2 and Yada first showed up.
Really, that’s about it.
I LOVED the Vader learning the wife is dead scene. Almost made up for minimal screen time for the Vaderbot.
I rank this # 2 of 6
- Star Wars
With that said, oh dark lord of the Cineplex, if you stop fucking around with the original 3, I will personally kiss your ass. Do not screw with this one, either, although add deleted scenes if they have Vader the blackhearted in them.
OTOH, whatever you can do to Menace and Clones *TO IMPROVE THEM* is OK. Including starting over from scratch.
P.S. Purp liked it, too.
