    I really loved PT. That's why sometimes I disagreed with somebody when they talk about how awful PT is and how disappointed they are.

    I wonder if the original trilogy would have done as well if Lucas used a six year old Luke Skywalker?

    I wonder why his tunic is blowing like that?

    They must have strong air conditioning in the Jedi Council chambers.

    Nah would've worked better if Obi-Wan was 6 instead.

    Couldn't Obi Wan grab Anakin and put him on the ship? I guess he didn't do it because Sidious was approaching.

    To every "couldn't he have" the answer is most likely "yes."

    Anakin did commit unforgivable crimes, but if he could be turned he could become a good asset against Sidious, it's worth a try if they could escape from Sidious.

    I love that scene. It's the reason I enjoyed RotS more than the rest of the PT.

    I still think it fit the novel Anakin perfectly, but a bit unnecessary to movie Anakin.

    What if when Anakin burst into flames, Obi-Wan tried to put him out by peeing on him?

    Obi Wan had no time for that, Sidious was coming.

    That scene could've used some better set up, as in, two and a half films detailing a more complex journey into the dark side. Once won over to the dark side around the end of the second film (but not yet a Sith) have Anakin endure some actual Sith training under Sidious (like Empire with Luke/Yoda) only to have his final test be killing all the younglings at the end of the third film, before his fight with OB1. That would've worked. Oh well.

    What if R2 came by with a huge bucket of water just as Anakin burst into flames?

    Well if Obi Wan wanted to save him he just needed to use Force Pull on Anakin, just pull off a bit away from the lava.

    I'm wondering if it would have made more sense if Anakin fell into the lava, or it looked like he was falling so Obi Wan would try to save him at the last minute to no avail.

    No, Anakin seeing him walk away "burns" emotionally, too.
