    Even if the ship did have weapons the correct answer would be if they did that we wouldn't have the only redeeming thing in the entire movie. The lightsaber fight at the end.

    Episode 2 Anakin is downright creepy at times. I've heard women comment on how uncomfortable he makes them in some of the scenes.

    What are these "prequels" you guys keep mentioning?

    Don't remember that scene in the movie.

    "Creepy" doesn't even begin to describe him--he's a megalomaniac and mass murderer from the very beginning. But the girl barely seems to notice or care. Then in the third movie she's supposed to be surprised when he starts killing "good" people?

    I wasn't expecting the prequels to be good movies, but I can't find a single nice thing to say about them. How 'bout the scene where Christopher Lee tells Kenobi everything that's been happening behind the scenes, and Kenobi's response is: "I don't believe you."

    And it turns out Lee is evil after all anyway. What?

    You rewatched the prequels? You are braver than I thought.

    The prequels were so great that I honestly can't remember this scene. I know I've seen all of the Star Wars movies but can't recall a lot about the prequels.

    It was when Anakin Kenobin and Padme were captured on Geonosis, Dooku told him a sith lord controls the senate while trying to convert him

    I'm talking about this scene:

    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]

    I'm not oblivious -- I get what's supposed to be happening (or at least this is a plausible interpretation): Lee wants to move against Palpatine at some point in the future and he's trying to get Kenobi to go along with it. But how could that possibly work out in his favor? He tells Kenobi all he needs to know to go get Palpatine. He takes that to the rest of the Jedi, and they do. Then what?

    Re-watched the ending of ROTJ this weekend. I stand by my belief that Luke fighting Vader in the throne room with pervy Palpatine looking on is some of the best footage in the OT. Ewoks were a problem no doubt, but I still don't believe them to be as bad as some claim. The space battle may be the greatest one ever on screen. So there is that too,

    Less then two weeks left guys. I can't believe we are almost there.

    2 out of three ain't bad.

    The Ewok stuff is just intolerable.

    Vader taunting "Sissssster! So you have a twin sister!" followed by Luke going batshit crazy remains one of the best scenes in all of Star Wars and the culmination of everything awesome an 8-year-old had waited three goddamn years for.
