i just got home from the theaters.
i haven’t been to a cinema for at least one year, but just about every website i found, said something like, “if you’re going to see just one movie this year, it’s gotta be this one!”
i’m still thrilled with star wars, episode III ! i think it’s an amazing movie, and (fortunately) it’s far better than part I and II combined (here* is a comment that i completely agree to – 100%).
* go to “It’s OK to be a STAR WARS fan again.”
but i noticed two severe mistakes, which is a real bummer:
- on kashyyyk (the wookies’ planet) there is the “afloat attack”. you see those giant weel-ships driving on the water’s surface. before they reach the other shore (you can see it already), two wookie’s swing in on their lianas and blast a ship.
- in episode VI (return of the jedi), obi-wan says, “he was our last hope,” to which yoda responds, “no, there is another.”
how can obi-wan not remember that he was the one handing the twins to padme amidala in episode III???
this is either a HUGE mistake in the whole story, or there’s something i don’t know (i haven’t searched the net, yet).
those guys state, that
- Kenobi may have known about Leia in TESB before Yoda stated, “there is another [hope]”, but he may not have thought Leia was capable of doing much hence he said Luke was their last hope.
Luke had already begun training as a jedi, and time would have seemed like it was running out. Leia was probably a lost cause in Kenobi’s eyes, hence his statement!
makes sense to me…
other than that, i think it’s amazing how they pulled the strings to get such a smooth transition to episode IV’s plot.
and the transformation to darth vader is the limit!
there really aren’t many questions left to ask (except, maybe, how qui-gon learned how to join the force AFTER he died).
if you haven’t seen ep III yet, you definitely have to! i totally recommend it!
little side note here: it’s interesting that the androids were played/controlled by anthony daniels (c-3po) and kenny baker (r2-d2). they were in episode IV to IV already, just like peter mayhew (chewbacca) and ben burtt (the sound designer).
