Discussion in 'Prequel Trilogy' started by Klingon Padawan, Mar 12, 2013.
I would like to see more of the Battle of Mygeeto in ROTS.
Look, I do understand that, I really do.
This forum is pretty much the only place on the where people will openly talk about enjoying the PT, because if you go anywhere else you will be bashed into oblivion. So we congregate here. But its come to the point that whenever we see someone openly prequel-bashing (without giving actual reasons that aren't direct quotes from RLM), we tend to check the joined date immediately, because its always new members who do that, thinking that this is like any other place on the net where you'll get 100 upvotes for saying "PT sucks".
Thing is, Star Wars PT has been around for 14 years, and every year more people are introduced to it. It just depends on the age (or time of exposure) to them. 20 years from now it will probably be very common for people to love the PT, as new generations grow up.
On the other had, I suggest you re-watch the trilogy before discussing it. There are a lot of die-hard fans here who will be quick to point of errors in your reasoning if you don't know the materiel
Luke, you're going to learn that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.
Dude, that's some AWESOME reading right there!
I can't speak to what the Jedi knew or didn't know. It would appear that they in fact did not for whatever reason know about that order.
And camouflaging 66 with 65 makes PERFECT sense if you use logic. Contingency orders cover contingencies. Why would one have a contingency for taking down the Jedi but NOT for taking down the Chancellor, or even the Senate.
66 as a single, isolated order would stand out like the proverbial sore thumb. A reasonable person would wonder why the other possibilities for an insurrection would not have a contingency order as well.
66 alongside 65 is just another "just in case order" with nothing outstanding or special about it.
Or Sidious could have shrouded the entire subject with the Dark Side so that it wasn't even something "on the radar" for the Jedi.
Not that that is needed. Ask any executive, military officer or CEO...it's the "paper pushers" who really know everything, because they need to. Decision makers don't always follow the minutiae of how things are done, or go digging into information they don't really need. The Jedi were fighting a war, after all...[/quote]
"No, no, I'm afraid it is you who are mistaken about my order. I specifically ordered anchovies on my pizza. It is right there on the datapad brochure you sent me. Item number sixty five. Oh, no, my little fast food friend. Not sixty-seven. Not sixty-three. Sixty-five. With each passing moment you make me less inclined to use your delivery service. No, not sixty-four. Sixty-four has pineapple on it. Sixty-five, you understand? Wait a moment, I have another call ... ah. Commander Cody. The time has come. Execute order sixty-fiveohBUGGER--"
LMAO! Imagine all the clones flying in from the outer ring to kill the chancellor!
Link? I wanna check it out..or is it just an edited version?
I can't find it on YouTube, but it's on the blu ray!
I like Yoda's scene on Kashyyyk the best, because he at least can sense something of what is happening, which makes it so much more terrifying for him.
You mean RLM imagines?
I thought Order 66 was based on this:
Given that Lucas has always included political statements in Star Wars (especially about American history), it wouldn't surprise me.
No he's recounting what I told him!
Yeah, because Ronald Reagan always got around in kilometre-long spaceships. I can see that.
The one where Dave and Ashley walk into In 'n Out Burger:
I don't see any terror, but he does seem disturbed.
Maybe I put it wrong, it is terrifying moreso for the audience, since we know what is happening and Yoda doesn't. He does have a great disturbed expression though - he knows Jedi are dying, but it literally came out of nowhere (from his POV).
I absolutely LOVED watching Vader walk up the Temple stairs alongside the 501st troopers. It showed power and authority. It sent chills down my spine when I saw it in theaters, and it still is my favorite scene in order 66 to watch at home.
The death of Ki-Adi Mundi (is there a third hyphen in there? I forget).
I'd have loved to have seen a longer Order 66 sequence with more Jedi being betrayed, but the best scene is the Mygeeto sequence and the look on Ki-Adi Mundi's face when he realises his troops are about to kill him. So sad.
When Yoda drops his cane and clutches his chest and the look on his face... it's almost too much for me. Such a brilliant and powerful montage!
I liked the whole thing, but my favorite was when it shows Anakin walking slowly through the Temple, followed by the 501st. And the music. My second favorite has got to the killing of Stass Allie on Saleucami. How the two clones on the speeder bikes just knodded and shot was impressive and very sad and emotional. My least favorite was the killing of Aayla Secura...she seemed to fall down really dramatically and awkwardly and almost like she fell down before they shot...
