Star Wars marathon part 3Third time of the Star Wars marathon is always a charm!Star Wars marathon part 3 by darthfomalhaut
And what a dark, exciting charm it is, because now we get into my favorite chapter of the saga, REVENGE OF THE SITH!
With that out of the way, let's get down to it!
- This is the turning point of the Star Wars saga, and the connector for all of the dots; the end of the Clone Wars, followed by the fall of the Republic and the Jedi Order, and (last but not least) Anakin's transformation into Darth Vader. What's more, the birth of Luke and Leia signify the title of the upcoming chapter: A New Hope.
- Obi-Wan is at his best, both in wisdom and in badassery: he has the calm and resilience to resist the Dark Side, and the modesty to give Anakin the credit on the Chancellor's rescue, even though Anakin insisted the fact that Obi-Wan had trained him to accomplish such things. Not to mention with his mastery of Soresu, he is able to blast General Grievous to bits, and able to cut off the rest of his former apprentice's r
Star Wars marathon part 2Now on to the second part of the Star Wars marathon!Star Wars marathon part 2 by darthfomalhaut
Sadly, we're now talking about my LEAST favorite of the saga, Attack of the Clones. Do I hate it? No, absolutely not. But do I think that it's great? Again, no. This movie is quite half-and-half to me, but now, let me elaborate.
- Obi-Wan has definitely developed here; he goes from being a simple padawan learner to a full-on Jedi Knight. He's still that pessimistic, goody-two shoes, by-the-book, calm, no-nonsense guy from before with the dry wit, however this time, he's actually given some more stuff to do. It's also better to see him in a leadership role as well. And Ewan McGregor again compliments Alec Guinness well.
- Count Dooku is much more developed than Darth Maul; he is a fine, well-mannered, and old-fashioned gentleman with a tremendous sense of charisma, elegance, and taste. On that note, how can you go wrong with Christopher Lee? :iconCountDookuplz:

*spoiler alert!! I tell the ending!!*
Revenge of the Sith: A Tragic Hero, a Message of Hope
As the third episode in George Lucas’ iconic film series Star Wars, Revenge of the Sith primarily follows the life of Anakin Skywalker, who eventually becomes the infamous Darth Vader. The film opens as Anakin and his Jedi Master Obi-wan are on a mission to rescue Supreme Chancellor Palpatine from enemy captivity. After many obstacles and a crash landing, they succeed in rescuing Palpatine and safely arrive on planet Coruscant. Promptly after his arrival, Anakin becomes aware that his wife, Senator Padme Amidala, is pregnant, which complicates their secret marriage, as Jedi Knights are required to remain celibate. Before long, Anakin begins to have foreshadowing dreams that cause him to fear Padme’s death for the remainder of the movie. (Lucas, 2005)

Star Wars Revenge of the Sith reviewFirst I want to say that I'm pretty excited for my first review. After a lot of writing for schoolwork it's just good to write for fun (which is what these reviews are for).Star Wars Revenge of the Sith review by darthfomalhaut
Without further ado, lets look at one of my favorites from the sci-fi action genre: Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
Let me just say this off of the bat; this is without a doubt the best of the new Star Wars movies. The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones were merely the set-ups; this is the part that we've been waiting for.
This isn't the most imaginative Star Wars film, but it is the best looking. The CGI has improved a great deal since the first two movies, and now it looks amazing. I love the design of General Grievous (the droid general who is able to wield four lightsabers; how awesome is that!?) and the backgrounds for such planets as the metropolitan Coruscant and the volcanic Mustafar.
Out of all the movies, this one also had the best action sequences, includ
Prisoner of WarMaster I've failed youPrisoner of War by Shade2903
My wrists are bound to eight-foot long chains fixed to fifteen-foot high engraved obsidian pillars, and I only have enough chain length to stand or kneel. I've been on my knees for the past two hours and my human wrist burns from rubbing against the ancient shackles.
I've been captured.
The room I am in is a dark, hot, stony dungeon that looks like it hasn't been used in ages. The only light I have to see by is cast by the torches on the wall. They throw off evil-looking red-orange light that illuminates my drenched, scowling face. My hair is matted and dripping with sweat and blood from the torture I've endured.
But I'll never give him what he wantsthe location of my former Master and the satisfaction of gloating in front of a hopelessly dejected Jedi Knight. Too bad for him, he'll never get that pleasure.
My robes are torn in places where The Silencer's barb

So young and naive,
But you had power,
And we did believe,
That you would save us,
Would always be true.
Light up the darkness,
We counted on you.
You showed such promise,
You had a good heart,
But life can be painful,
And tear us apart.
With all that you faced,
All that you went through,
It made you darker,
Still we trusted in you.
But now this darkness,
It's etched on your face.
You were the angel-
Now fallen from grace.
You're My Sweetest Dream Come True [Bobakin]Boba could not remember what happened in his dream, only that the burning, horrid image of the lightsaber slicing across his father's neck repeated itself over and over like a tune he could not get out of his head.You're My Sweetest Dream Come True [Bobakin] by Stilwater-Rundeepo
He woke up with tears and sweat streaming down his face and his throat aching terribly. The sheets were tangled around his leg, and he was all but breathless. Boba stifled a small cry as he sat up straight. Slowly he regained his composure, but the image was still vivid in his mind.
It was only a dream, Boba tried to tell himself. Only it wasn't. It was real.
The more Boba tried to forget about the dream, shake it off his thoughts and get some rest, the worse he felt. There was little to no chance he would get any more sleep tonight. He was too restless. The room began to feel cold and empty, and Boba hugged his knees in the darkness while squeezing his eyes shut. Why, why couldn't the past just stay in the past?
