yeah'd say so

Anakin saw the sunlight through the hole in Kit Fisto's forehead. THAT'S awesome!




ROTS the movie as a whole cannot overcome my hang-ups with it. My list wasn't even complete, I just got tired of typing all the problems up.

"Darth Gramps" LOL good point there

I'm not sure if this should be here or in the "Literature and Media" forum, but it branches the film, so here goes.

In Republic Commando Order 66, four days pass from the end of the Battle of Coruscant to Operation Knightfall/Order 66. In the film, however, I only know of three nightfalls(pardon the pun.)

Night 1. Anakin and Padme conversation and Anakin's dream. Presuambly the same day the Chancellor is rescued and the battle ends.

Night 2. Palpatine and Anakin at the opera. Tragedy of Darth Plagueis.

Night 3. March on the Temple.

Does more time pass in the film than what is apparent onscreen? From watching the film it would seem there's only 2 days between the end of the battle and Operation Knightfall, but the Order 66 novel says its four. Can anyone shed light on this?

Since Padme goes from not even showing her pregnancy to significantly showing and giving birth I'd say a great deal of time passes.

That's one of the things that bugs me about ROTS. You don't get any real sense of how much time passes. You have to infer too much.

When was she not showing? In her first scene? The robe she was wearing was meant to conceal her pregnancy.

Then that makes Anakin the dumbest guy in the galaxy for not noticing the baby bump when he held her close to him.

Padme had to tell Anakin she was pregnant. This after they embraced and he didn't even sense it. Jedi, remember. I know Anakin's not the brightest lightsaber hanging on the belt, but I think even he'd notice a nearly full-term pregnancy.

*shrug* Well, whatever the case, she was indeed nearly full term at that point. In the very next scene (which is presumably later that same night), Padme is in a nightgown and is clearly very pregnant.

It's definitely supposed to have been at least halfway through the pregnancy, because Anakin and Padme haven't seen each other for months. The last time they saw each other was in SW: Obsession on Naboo, which was five months before Episode III. It's possible that the final season of TCW could change this, however.

I wouldn't fault him for not sensing that she was pregnant, as that doesn't seem like a Jedi power that's latent. Obi-Wan didn't sense it was Anakin dropping into the elevator earlier in the film. "Oh, it's you!"

Rots was by far the best prequel trilogy movie of all. So many secrets were revealed, things were uncovered, Jedi were killed.

ROTS may be my favorite of the Saga. Just a touch more than Empire. Blasphemy, I know. Just love how it connects all the dots. And we get to see Sidious in action.

Finally, after three tries, my husband watched Revenge of the Sith. Understand he suffered through The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones before giving up and running away. But we've made it!

The first half of the movie doesn't hold up. It comes across worse and worse each time I watch it, the dialogue especially. But the second half still gets to me. When Commander Cody first ordered they fire on Obi-Wan, I started crying. And I kept crying through all of Order 66. I did not realize it was still so emotionally powerful! I remember I cried during those scenes in the theater. But that was 12 years ago! Wow. Shocked

I still love RotS. It's hard to explain... maybe it's because I still view it through the eyes of a child... but the cheesy dialogue doesn't bother me. Maybe because it's written with such sincerity. I don't know.

@Reep: I can understand that. The dialogue doesn't work but in my youth I really wanted to like it so I just...well, I just did.
