Until the release of ROTS on 5/19/05, I would like to discuss AOTC chapter by chapter on the DVD. There are 47 chapters to discuss over the next eight months, excluding Chapter 1: Opening Logos, Chapter 2: Attack of the Clones and Chapter 50: End Credits. Each discussion will last 5 days. At the end of 5 days, the following chapter will be posted. Chapter 47: "Well Done, Lord Tyranus" DISCUSSION: April 6, 2005 - April 10, 2005 DVD TIME INDEX: 131:16 - 132:47 Synopsis: The Solar Sailer nears the capital, closing its sail before breaking through the atmosphere. It glides through the metropolis then passes through the abandoned Old Town, far from the city. The ship enters the Dacho Factory hangar and lands. Dooku descend the vessel and is greeted by his master, Darth Sidious. He tells his master that he war has begun. Sidious is pleased with the results. Everything is going according to the plan of the Dark Lord of the Sith. END OF CHAPTER Opinion: Short chapter to start the final few scenes of the second movie. It's really a gloomy conclusion like Empire. Even though the Jedi won on Geonosis, the inevitable Clone War has begun. Dooku's ship always fascinated me. I love the sails on the ship, reminding me of a something you'd want to take on the high seas. Also the beetle look added some characterization to Dooku and his enigma. The return to Coruscant was brilliantly captured, reminding me of the opening shot of the movie when Padme arrives on Coruscant. The reddish sunset like the sunset at the end of Phantom Menace in incredible symbolism carrying over from film to film. The Dacho Factory is an interesting locale. I just wish it served more purpose than a temporary hideout for the Sith. And Sidious, who can forget the puppetmaster. This is the only time we see him in the movie, unlike Phantom Menace, which perfectly flourished with the Dark Lord. You would think with the lifting of the Dark Side shroud that Sidious would be shown more in this film, but that element of mystery and intrigue still fuels to the end of this film. Maybe it was for the best to allude you from enemy to enemy. Good chapter.
