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

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:

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
