    My favorite little moment from the prequel trilogy would be when Jar Jar waves his hand in front of the guard in The Phantom Menace in the background. I thought it was a cute little touch.

    A small interesting detail: the Jedi that go to arrest Palpatine activate their lightsabers in reverse order of when they are killed.

    Palpatine's "GooooooodAnakinGoooooood" after Anakin's amputates Dooku's hands reminds me of his "Good.... good!" in ROTJ after Vader throws his lightsaber and Luke comes crashing down.

    Those aren't the Death Star plans. It's a tactical readout for a planetary siege.

    My Favorite little moment has gotta be QUI GON kneeling and meditating as he awaits the laser shields to go off. In the midst of a physically Tiring duel he is smart enough to immediately take advantage of the little time he has to rest. Instead of looking at Maul , he closes his eyes and focuses inward..who knows, he might be reciting the Jedi Code ? Compare this to Maul, who is pacing back and forth, anxiously tapping the laser shield with his saber as if he's a caged beast. Of course qui Gon gets slain relatively quickly but his inner peace he displays is Powerful

    It was because of Qui Gon's meditation that I was sure he was going to defeat Maul.

    I like it in TPM when Binks says "Hello boyos" to the droids.

    I like the probe droid circling behind Watto and Jinn after the pod race.

    Also it's cool when all the females check out Anakin at the bar on Coruscant at the beginning of AOTC. Plus Anthony Daniels has a cameo.

    I like how Dex says "pocketbook" and the way Kenobi smiles back.

    I love the line "He didn't say" from ROTS.

    All of Zam Wesell's scenes, of course.

    Too many to name, these just popped into my head when I saw this thread again. Cheers! :)

    This is the "Iron" Queen Amidala's best moment showing she's fed up with Senate's ineffectiveness. Padme says "Captain, ready my ship!" while still staring at her target Palpatine . =D=

    It seems Anakin may have been influenced by Watto. Take it or leave it. :p

    I know this isn't a moment but it is a detail I suppose and I'm sure many others have brought it up before.

    I love how Palpatine and Padme are both from Naboo. The purity and idealism of Padme and the sinister malevolence of Palpatine both came from the same planet and this is mirrored where under the beautiful serene surface of Naboo lies a labyrinth nested with monsterous phantom-like sea creatures.

    It literally took me until my most recent watch-through of the Saga, right before TFA came out, to notice that we follow the carving Anakin made for Padme in TPM throughout the movies. She's even still holding it in her coffin.

    Back with another RotS background appreciation post! Let's go!

    The cargo walker on the Venator in the background, as well as the troops, give a great sense of scale. Anyone know what walker it is? Also, the Republic Gunships in the far background on conveyor belts (which are also behind Anakin/Obi-Wan, and are visible at some points). Gosh I love the GAR tech!
    [​IMG]


    This scene is Star Wars at it's pure, fantastic, visual best; there is just so much going on! [face_love] The plain white troopers, opposed to 212th orange, working on the Gunship cockpits, the 'Fire Speeder' techs (which I now assume to be Clones based on their heights in this scene) fiddling around with engine parts and wiring, the different hairstyles on the Clones standing around Obi Wan, the squad marching outside the main hangars... HAT DIGGITY DAYUM! I think the trooper by the bubble turret is polishing it, but I'm not sure! I also like the way the V-Wings orientate their wings in landing position. The music of this whole segment is fantastic too, probably one of my faves! I can't help but feel the blue astromech was meant to go with the blue fighter, but then changes in direction when he sees ol' R4 has taken his place![​IMG]


    The Gunship on the left opens it's side doors, and adjusts them outward to create drag and slow the speed! Off the top of my head I can't think of any other ships but Snowspeeders that use flaps to create drag.
    [​IMG]


    This pic is to clear up something I raised in my other posts on here regarding other Varactyls riding to battle. I've circled them in red!
    [​IMG]


    The Clone pilots in this gunship aren't static the whole time, they move! A tiny detail but I love it for that exact reason, as I could see many other movies not bothering with this sorta thing!
    [​IMG]


    Cody's badass helmet roll as he takes it off. Reminds me of Jango and his blaster in AotC! :D
    [​IMG]


    And finally, the troopers escorting the Utapauns and the guy in the middle right have different kit on their backs to the usual ones. Also, I spy another 41st Elite trooper!

    "..but which Senator would propose such a radical amendment?"

    This look in Anakin's eyes as Obi-Wan cries "Bring balance to the Force, not leave it in darkness!" It's as if in that moment he realizes just how far he'd fallen.

    In TPM, there's a quick shot after the TF's cameras go down when attacking the Jedi where it goes to a black and white style test pattern:

    This is a nice little indicator that we're back in a slightly more primitive time in the SW galaxy.
