I think it's funny how many people have a problem with how fast Anakin fell but not how fast he turned good again.  In both cases, it wasn't one scene that completely tipped the scale from one side to the other, there is a lot of build up.

And I always viewed Padme dying as part of a symbiance with Anakin.

I sorta know what you mean. I think of it this way. There were a lot of scenes before that showing he really cared about his kid. And when he does "turn good" again, the only thing he really does is save his child. It's not like he was ready to pack it up and join the rebellion or anything.

By the way, if anyone hasn't seen it in the past, pretty old now but...

I like Revenge of the Sith, in fact it might be my favourite one, but this stuff is hilarious. It's obviously affectionate humour though. Got stuff for all of them also.

No, but it was compassion that saved him, and that is considered his ultimate redemption whether he would have joined the rebellion or not.  But this is not a problem because through spending time with his son, we start to see the beginning of the end for Vader.  Just like with his turn to the dark side, the conflict grew and grew until he was forced to make a choice.

I'd really like to go back and watch the whole prequel trilogy again to pick up more of the big picture, but I really don't think I could stomach it.  What a shame.

He watches Anakin a lot no doubt.  It's interesting in the scene where Anakin is alone in the council chamber, right before he goes to save Palpatine from Mace, that he hears Palpatine's dialog in his head.  One of the lines though was never said to Anakin's face.  So this could mean either the scene with that line was cut, or more interestingly, that Palpatine is reaching out and speaking to Anakin just as Luke did to Leia in The Empire Strikes Back. 

Regardless of whether he saw what happened or not though, Palpatine wanted to fill Vader with anger in that scene.

Ya know, I'll be the first to comment on a lot of the stupid things in the movie, but I suppose for this, Ole Palpy could've just read his thoughts.  He did it before, when revealing himself as a Sith Lord and letting Anakin know that together they could save Padmé.  Although it's debatable that he might have put those thoughts into Anakin's head.

Anyway, just as Luke's thoughts went to his sister while he was fighting Vader, I imagine Anakin's thoughts went to Padmé while he was becoming the six million credit man.

Palpatine was a very powerful Sith Lord.  Nowhere near Anakin in terms of sheer connection with the Force (being that of course Anakin is himself an embodiment of the Force), but he had plenty of time to learn all sorts of great Force powers like Mind Reading/Reaching and Battle Meditation.

The simple way of looking at it is like looking at magic in most medieval fantasy: Palpatine knows a lot of spells, but Anakin is able to tap into pure magic.

Just bumping this thing to say my 6 year old and I just went to the Star Wars - In Concert. AMAZING....brilliant. Hosted by C-3P0....fantastic.

It showed my son, who's been taking piano lessons for three years now - just how much practice it takes no matter the instrument to get good. The complexity of all of those songs and all of those instruments working together..and working within the scene of the film just gave me a new respect for all of the movies - even ones that you hear people dismiss as "not as good as the others".

They were all good.
Very very good.
Take care everyone - Bet you all didn't even notice I was gone.

Happy Lives to you all.

John Williams is amazing.
Howard Shore and John Williams are masters of the movie soundtrack. Working with leitmotifs and adapting to scenes is a difficult thing to accomplish, and they create the most amazing soundtracks.
I have a good collection of great movie soundtracks. I seem to appreciate the music in movies more than most. Good to see that you see their value as well.

I love movie soundtracks.  Especially in the case of Star Wars; as exciting as the things happening on the screen are, John Williams really is the ingredient that brings everything together.

What's more awsome is seeing them live. Seriously - I've said it before and I'll say it again - seeing Boba Fett headbang with an 8 string guitar a few feet in front of you is the single most awesome thing you can do in life. :2metal:

I asked the frontman about getting some recordings after the show but he said they can't really release anything at the moment because of the copyright issues. The guitarists are also in Hot Leg/Haken and have been concentrating on that for a while, so hopefully more shows next year when they get some time. :D

Also the vocalist is dressed as Princess Leia and is the smiliest death growler ever. :lol

a couple of Star Wars related things from me.

Im here by now admitting my error in "Panning" the Clone Wars cartoon. I know I did it here, even if none of you call me on it....Im calling myself on it. It's a GREAT show.....very well done.

My son and I traded in one of his lame christmas presents (some rayman Wii game about rabbits?) and found The Force Unleashed in a bargain bin. OH WOW...what fun...and we watched the trailer for the second one - posted by someone at DTF (thank you!!)
Take care everyone - Bet you all didn't even notice I was gone.

Happy Lives to you all.
