NAW IBO-- I completely agree with all of your great analysis. I never saw the real arrogance of the Jedi. At least not yet. And the more I think about it, Obi Wan was a lot nicer in AOTC than TPM. JEDI_LEIA said: See, I would be surprised. I don't think Anakin is evil in AOTC. I think he can't control his emotions and he's a bit overconfident, but not enough to be a "sociopath". Yes, there was the Tusken Slaughter but there were circumstances surrounding that. I'm not saying it's alright that he did what he did. All I'm saying is that it's not like a guy who just wakes up one day and says "I feel like killing someone." That's evil. We are also told by Cliegg what kind of people the tusken raiders are.. I think this is sometimes overlooked. It was placed there to create that friction. I know there are many threads on this issue alone and I think it basically boils down to opinion, so that's mine.. Well, I don't really think Vader was killing without a purpose. He killed as a mean to his evil ends. He was not just walking around choking people willy nilly. But inc omparison to every other Jedi we have seen in the PT, Anakin is by far the closest to going to the dark side. Even Dooku is a lot more cooler (cool meaning calm, not hip) than Anakin. But that's just how I see it. Anidanami: I don't think people are really born good or evil. Infants sort of get a pass from a moral standpoint, because they have no morality. That said, I do think Anakin's personality has more of a tendency for him to be disrespectful or evil. I don't see where we really disagree here. OPHELIA- Okay, okay, now that we are talking about existential negatives, I understand you. And I am glad you liked the film! It's obviously one of my all-time faves. It had the depth and peformances I wish I could have seen in the PT. Especially when it comes to Jen and Anakin. And your sig is great! lol...that's a great scene. And it's also very true for the PT too. I never thought about that. LOL..
