i just got it... Midi-chlorian is a combination of both the words "mitochondria" and "chloroplast". mitochondria being oxygen-consuming endosymbionts (in this galaxy) and chloroplasts being oxygen-releasing endosymbionts (also in this galaxy... well on earth anyway)...

hence a midichlorian as a unit of the force can handle both the
"dark side"
(energy consuming mitochondrions as we understand it now)
"light side"
(energy-producing chloroplasts which harvest energy from the sun)

or vice versa, depending on your interpretation

i have a bit more respect now for the whole midichlorian concept now that i more fully grasp (thanks to you johnq..! ) the duality of the midichlorian and it's modern-day-biology references

Vader didn't blow up Alderaan. That was Tarkin's idea. Hence Vader's rather shocked "What do you mean?" Look how fast his head whips around Vader wanted to keep dragging his feet using the ineffectual mind probe on Leia. Vader was the one that let them escape. He suggested putting the tracking device on the Falcon, to Tarkin's displeasure. Vader even left the Death Star at the last minute. He wanted it destroyed.

Note Vader's rather consoling (albeit also restraining) grip on Leia's shoulder.

Plus it was Vader that was delaying Tarkin from finding the rebel base by demanding he be allowed to continue trying to extract info from Leia, which was slow and buying the Rebellion some time. Tarkin was too impatient for that. (page 87-88 of the novel).

I also think Vader's meditation chamber was built so that he could hide his feelings from the Emperor.

Darth Vader pre-burning/armor was evil. Post armor, I feel he was on a slow steady mission to eventually kill the Emperor. Not that the Emperor would be surprised, since that's the Sith way. But the Emperor was arrogant enough to think that Vader was old and weak and Luke was the only one that could do it. When Luke proved stubborn and not strong enough, he had no use for either of them.

Not that CGI existed then, aside from the primitive vector Death Star trench animation. The limits actually helped keep the story human and set the focus more tightly than the CGI menageries and too-busy compositions.

And editing isn't merely leaving things out. Pacing is crucial. Something that the prequels tends to lose once too many plotlines spring up and overlap.

But yeah it's obvious that his wife was influential. Unfortunately so was the dreadful (except her ass) Natalie Portman. There's pretty much only one way she got that gig...

Right, in Jedi, Anakin kills the Emperor and brings balance to the force. Luke was a helpful distraction, to tempt the Emperor to think Luke would make a good replacement for Vader as the Emperor's new apprentice. (Remember, this was Vader offering that in Empire). This let Vader get Luke as close to the Emperor as possible. Vader knew Luke was good and powerful and would not kill his own father. This let Vader kill the Emperor himself when he was weakened/distracted.

The prophecy was right, it just took a while to happen.

I think that the prophecy was fulfilled when Anakin brings about the death of most the Jedi. There were a lot of practitioners of the light-side of the force, (the jedi knights), and only a few practitioners of the dark-side (the seth). The the death of the jedi "balanced" the force. Of course, as we have all known since episode one that balancing the force was not going to be a good thing, and Yoda says as much when he state that they might have misinterpreted the prophecy.

And about Vader using Luke as a stalking horse -- Vader would have had many opportunities to kill the Emperor during his reign if he really wanted to: Vader made the decision to kill him in the climactic scene the moment that he decided that Lukes life was more important than his masters.

At least that is the way I see it.

yeah that's the thing that makes me not like all the other jedi, except for Shakti because she's very cutely-drawn in CloneWars animated series... and of course i think yoda and obiwan are cool. mace windu is a bit too up himself for my liking.

but yeah that's the thing in that you could look at it that "okay, there is some balance coming to the force"... now the jedi should be thinking.. okay we have like hundreds of light-side practitioners... 1 dark lord and 1 dark apprentice... hmm... balancing is coming... hmmm...... HELLO? ANYONE HOME? too much light side...!! which explains the jedi council (i don't really like the council as well) being scared about anakin, because they know that the Jedi's reign of light-side supremacy is coming to an end....

just to recap... Obiwan, Shakti, and Yoda are the jedi's jedi... the rest, well.... i'm just not that impressed by them.

hmm.. my favourite Sith characters... well, Vader, yes, palpatine was really well-acted but the character himself is very scary

I'll say this for G. Lucas, he's moviedom's greatist marketeer EVAR...

Had he resisted the temptation to "kiddie-ize" Return Of The Jedi with Ewoks and Yoda, Darth and OWK standing together in ghosty relief at the end, that would have remained the overall best of the entire series...IMHO.

Certainly the acting in the original three movies is superior in almost every way compared to the last three. Yes, acting overall isn't as wretched in "Sith" as the first two. You guys are a forgiving bunch...

Just to jump back to page 1 - thanks to Sunilraman for his comments about who gets clones and who gets droids etc. I mostly kapish. must watch other episodes again soon

random thought
if only...We'd had wookies instead of ewoks in Ep6. instead of small irrelevant fluffy things, it would have been the mob of howling kickass chewies that we see fleetingly in ep3

Now, Death Stars. Am I right in thinking that at the end of Ep3 the bad guys looked out of the window at a partially built Deathstar? In which case does it take them another 15-20 years to finish off ready for Ep4?

But, didn't the emperor whip up a deathstar - albeit unfinished - superquick ready for Ep6? Maybe they had a selection on the go, or they had really good steel-frame construction team, but the internal fitting out had union trouble.

ROFLMAO

yes wookies would definitely be awesome in episode 6, tie in with episode 3. wookies were cool in episode 3. everybody in the cinema went, "aww...." when chewie lifted yoda onto his shoulder.

yes at the end of episode 3 the bad guys are looking at a deathstar starting to be built. note also that at the end of episode 2 the geonosians (insect things) have the plans for the death star (hence my theory of the emperor harvesting the best tech from both the separatists and the old republic -- nothing like a good ol' war to get the scientists and technicians cranking out new diabolical stuff)

it kinda makes sense. it takes 15-20 years to build this big-ass thing that can essentially destroy a whole planet, recharge, then destroy another planet, all while cruising around in space at a reasonable speed.

in takes only a few years to rebuild because i guess they built it once already, and as we know this is 20+ years on when they first saw the plans, so in the star wars universe technology would have progressed quite fast as well that the emperor 'can whip up a new one' quicksmart.

edit: also by the end of episode 5 darth vader would have perfected his use of the force-death-neck-grip-killing so extra incentive for everybody to work really really hard as opposed to when he first became darth vader and was perhaps not as powerful

Maybe they started both death stars at the same time, and one came on line first.

In fact, maybe they had more than 2 going at once.

re the music, here's a link to an interview of John williams on NPR radio. john williams interview

Good insight into how the music was composed, specially how he integrated the musical themes of episode 4-6 into episodes 1-3.

It's definitely not rehash but a great thematic composition that is carried across all three movies. When you consider all 6 episodes as one, it really is the story of Anakin and the music reflects that.

My main problem with the 1-3 music is that it's more conventional sounding. In 4-6 lots of the music was done with oboes, clarinets and flutes guiding the melodies. It created a very unique presence. Conversely, 1-3 mostly used strings and horns, which, even with well scored music, leads to lacking in the freshness department, and hurts continuity a little between the 6 movies.

The other gripe, musically, I had, was with episode 2, when they goto that bar chasing the changling, I cannot believe they didn't take the opportunity to have some kicking rad cantina music!

Speaking to the 'rapid replacement' of the death star... this is an interesting point.... can someone timeline all of this out?

How many years are supposed to have passed from end of episode 3 to episode 4? (in other words how old is Luke?)

Then how many years are supposed to have passed between Episode 4 and 6?

This can give us the 'death star timeline'. Funny, I've had several people bring this up as an issue.

EDIT: Found this timeline. It puts the time between death stars as 4 years. (for death star 1 and 2)

http://www.starwarschicks.com/rpg/timeline.html

We know luke had to be what... 16 17 at least? Hum....

EDIT EDIT: Okay reading on it dates Luke at 20. So lets see... They didn't quite have the DS2 finished so lets say that it would have been finished by year 7 (which is fair considering a good 1/3 of it was missing)

A 3 fold improvment in efficiency? I'll buy that. (given the previously stated technology improvments as well as the 'we've already done this once' factor)

I have always assumed they began construction on the second death star, maybe even before they fully finished the first death star. They most likely started at least once DS1 was finished, but it's not outside the realm of reason to think they'd want 2+ of these things from the get-go.

Additionally, The DS2 was 'fully operational' despite looking half complete. This implies that their priority was creating another super laser, not necessarily a full blown death star station(which was for all intensive purposes a small city as well as a weapon)

SPOILER HERE... but honest to god, if you've read the thread this far, you've got half the script already...








i posted this on another message board, but what the heck is up with george lucas and dismemberment? shall we do a tally?

anakin/darth vader = both arms, both legs
count dooku/tyrannus = both arms, head
jango fett = head
general grievous = two hands
mace windu = entire right arm
luke skywalker = one hand
hoth beast = entire arm
c-3po = every limb (okay, that's kinda cheating since it was from a blaster rifle, but he spends a good chunk of TESB as a bag of bits on chewie's back, and gets his head um, misplaced, in AOTC)
darth maul = lower half (or upper half, if you're an optimist)

i know i am missing some, but seriously, what the hell?

well the weapon of choice is a light saber, which is basically a sword. What other mortal wound can you conflict with a sword? a deep stab? that is not very dramatic, is it? Also unlike a sword, a saber does not have a dull edge. not like you can knock someone on the head with it. If you notice, it cauterises as it cuts or dismembers if you will. Hence no bleeding. So, even though tons of people are killed on the Star Wars movies, very little blood is shown.

Again with the traction beam power of the force, maybe dismembering is the only way to ensure the holder does not get his weapon back.

Maybe cutting the head off is the traditional method of Jedi execution. Sorta like the Highlander movies.

Do AT-ATs and AT-SEs count? I think a few of them get "beheaded"...

And C-3PO gets his arm knocked off in A New Hope after the Sandmen attack.

Darth Vader gets his head cut off by Luke in The Tree dream.

And doesn't Obi-Wan's R5 unit get it's head ripped off by the buzz droids in E3?

Something about this one bothered me a little more than some of the other ones. I think because it was TORN off, not sliced off, as well as the likeness to the endearing R2

vader lost FOUR arms.

1. episode 2 - dooku cuts of arm.
....arm replaced by cybernetic one
2. clone wars animated series - anakin goes on some quest, loses cybernetic arm
...arm replaced by cybernetic one
3. episode 3 - anakin loses non-cybernetic arm
...anakin is f8cked, becomes full-on cyborg
4. episode 6 IIRC - luke cuts of a vader's hand
...vader dies saving luke and killing emperor

LUCAS has a dismemberment fetish

just look at the droids getting chopped up and stuff... well, it is the technique with lightsabers though...
