LOL really? I missed the segment in the thread title where it said "Plinkett fan club--positive Plinkett comments only". I don't care about it being "child friendly"--I was 33 years old when ROTS premiered. However, I thought the scene with Anakin drawing his saber on the younglings was absolutely ridiculous and over the top. When have we seen Vader attack a child in the OT? Never. His OT attacks, evil as they were, were all military-based. I thought Anakin choking Padme was ridiculous for the same reason. "I betrayed everyone I know because some old dude told me I needed to do it to save your life, but oh, Obi-Wan is on your ship? Let me try to strangle you to make a point." Beyond stupid. With these scenes, Lucas seemed to be playing the game of "How many super eeevil deeds can I make Anakin/Vader do? Let me count them." It was all arbitrary and pointless to me. And I have heard the argument that Anakin choking Padme was a "self-fulfilling prophecy" with his causing her death by trying to prevent it, but I don't believe in the concept of prophecy so I don't care. I liked TPM because it showed how everyone's story began. Obi-Wan was a Padawan to the one Jedi who believed in the Living Force. Anakin was a slave who wanted to free the other slaves and whose only living relative was his mother. Anakin's wife was a child ruler of a planet with no army, and she was the one who was responsible for giving the Emperor his greatest rise to power. I liked the irony there.
