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 8 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 8: Into the Club DISCUSSION: September 23, 2004 - September 27, 2004 DVD TIME INDEX: 21:35 - 24:47 Synopsis: In front of the club, two aliens are advertising on a screen. Obi-Wan spots Anakin and lectures him about being a Jedi and responsibilites. Anakin reveals to Obi-Wan that Zam, who has entered the club is a she contrary to Kenobi's original belief. They enter the club and Obi-Wan continues to lecture and tells Anakin that he'll be the death of him. He sends Anakin on an assignment to find Zam in the club while he has a drink. An alien tries to sell Obi-Wan death sticks, but the Jedi pulls a mind trick and tries to better the alien's thinking. The club is bustling. Anakin continues to look for Zam, who is now pointed her pistol at Obi-Wan's back. Zam gets closer and Obi-Wan turns around and cuts off her hand. Zam falls to the ground. Anakin and Obi-Wan escort Zam outside. Everyone goes back to their business. In an alley, Anakin and Obi-Wan question Zam, however it doesn't get anywhere when an individual wearing a jetpack shoot her far away with a toxic dart and kills her. END OF CHAPTER Opinion: The club is an impressive part of AOTC. It parallels the Cantina very well. It is more human based than the Cantina, but we have so many cameos, Anthony Daniels, Ahmed Best, Katie Lucas and the list goes on and on. Obi-Wan owns this chapter with his lines "Why do I have this feeling that you're going to be the death of me", "For a drink" and "You want to go home and rethink your life. Elan is humorous and does well for the tension of the scene at times. I like how the mystery only is more complex now that Zam's dead and couldn't reveal the true assassin. This also confirms her Clawdite form, which I hated at first, but now it's pretty good. The club gives more complexity to Coruscant. It isn't just politics and fading religions. Everything about this scene is great. Too bad it only lasted a few minutes. When I first heard about this scene, I pictured it differently, but I think that it couldn't have worked any other way.
