    I was watching a woman react to the SW Prequels for the first time on YouTube and she had an interesting observation.

    She noticed the nightclub in AOTC was very human-centric or, almost human like Twi'leks, while she noticed Dex's Diner was more alien and diverse. She questioned if that meant there were signs of xenophobia/segregation, and given AOTC's 1950s inspired aesthetic, I thought that was a fascinating thing to notice.

    2. I love how Anakin is shown to be very arrogant in his fighting style. Anakin seems to slouch a bit when he holds his saber to his side to signal he doesn't care. The best shot that I noticed it was the rematch duel with Dooku in ROTS. After Obi-Wan says, "You won't get away this time, Dooku," notice the stances Anakin and Obi-Wan take. Obi-Wan holds the blade up, close to his body to show his defensive and cautious nature while Anakin is very nonchalant about igniting it, not even making a stance. He just ignites it to his side like he is confident he will beat Dooku.

    Watching TPM on 4k. I’ve never noticed this before but for some reason there is a series of discarded medical droids in Watto’s backyard.

    You know, I believe until a recent viewing it took me almost 21 years to notice those Theed citizens running for safety.

    Maybe this has been pointed out, if it has I haven't heard it, but I noticed the name Amidala is similar to "Amid Allah", as in "amongst God"... and what does Anakin compare Padmé to when he first meets her? An angel.

    Is "amid" an Arabic word or do you mean the English word?

    ^English, like I said, "amid" as in "amongst".

    Four emotions for 3-second scene


    The whole dialogue is amazing.

    Anakin's unique trait is his youthful maximalism. That's why he calls Padme as an angel. Hatfield's first phrase ("Stagecoach") about Lucy Mallory (11.17): "Like an angel in the jungle." Because Hatfield's unique trait is maximalism, too.

    Damn. The whole TPM is a masterpiece.

    I like this parallel between ROTS and The Dark Knight in how Joker treats Two-Face to how Palpatine treats Vader.

    In TDK, Joker brags to Batman how he corrupted Harvey Dent's idealism and turned him into a rage-filled vigilante. And in ROTS, Palpatine taunts Yoda that Vader, the boy Obi-Wan trained, will become the most powerful Sith Lord ever even if he dies.

    Just cool/crazy to see how manipulative villains find so much glee in corrupting good people, The Chosen Ones of their respective films, and rubbing it in the face of our heroes.

    I wouldn't say arrogant. Confident is the word for me. Anakin had passed the time from 'this weapon is your life, don't loose it' to the point where the weapon is just like continuation to his arm and no matter that he has prosthetic arm he fights as he hasn't. Full mastery of the weapon. Anakin had grown up: not only literally.
    Speaking of this, I like the change that Hayden himself passed through between both movies. Is not small detail but is rarely mentioned. He looks older, stronger and bigger: as Anakin should look in his full prime. This confidence that he demonstrate wouldn't match well with the teenager Anakin from Attack of the Clones.

    Perhaps confidence with a pinch of playful arrogance, sprinkled with the occasional clumsy mistake. That whole first act is just dripping with that Lucas Star Wars style humor.

    But yes, it's like his saber became an extension of his arm. That igniting style is something that continued on with Vader, too.

    I love how Sidious almost tells Dooku about that hidden Sith world:

    - I have good news for you, mylord. The war has begun.

    - Exe... lent! (Whew, close call)

    Just realized he still has the scar he got as a Jedi, and presumably the droids didn’t remove the Jedi robes now burnt into his skin.

    Like a visual metaphor that Anakin is still in there.

    Something I noticed about ROTS is how darker and more sinister the CIS military are visually.




    The Tri-Droid fighters look especially primal and insect like.



    The Dwarf spider droid also looks more rusty and barbaric.


    As shown in TCW these gunships are probably the deadliest enforcers to the CIS air force.

    The makers seemed to have also employed more dark grays and blues in their color schemes for the CIS as well.

    Clones on Kashyyyk being the first troopers to use camouflage instead of plain white.
    White armor never really made sense, especially in woods.

    And Kashyyyk looks like a real battlefield, shame that there are only glimpses of the droid attack on the wookies.

    As a veteran who was sent to the desert in 2007 with a forest camo flack vest due to budgetary reasons, it makes sense.
    *this is meant to be humorous, but it comes off as snide, so I just wanted to clarify

    "So love has blinded you?"
    "Well, that's not exactly what I meant"
    "But it's probably true"

    Just great foreshadowing. Padme is right. Anakin's love is blinds him from making the right decision, but it is ironically what saves him in the end too. His blind love for Padme causes him to reject his Jedi teachings but his blind love for his son causes him to reject the dark side.

    All the transports and ships flying around outside the Chancellor’s office right after Anakin turns to the dark side. As Sidious tells Anakin what to do next, people of Coruscant are still out living their lives — unaware that evil has grabbed control of the galaxy.
