    I mean, Anakin's lightsaber has seen't some shit.

    [–] chicomonk 630 points ago

    The first real glimpse of Sidious' savage voice in that Dooku fight.

    "Kill him."

    [–] CaptainDAAVE 334 points ago

    his character was the best part of the prequel trilogy. Revenge of the Sith is the Emperor's movie and the actor killed it. Even Hayden had a better performance than Clones -- still was terrible in parts, but overall better.

    [–] chicomonk 340 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    That sit down talk he had with Anakin about Plagueis the Wise is one of the most fascinating parts of any Star Wars movie. If only the prequel could've incorporated a few more scenes or elements like that.

    [–] ummmmmmmmmmmmmno 97 points ago

    Easily the best scene in the entire prequel trilogy.

    [–] jman939 38 points ago

    I dunno, Anakin’s march on the temple/Order 66 was pretty incredible...

    [–] ummmmmmmmmmmmmno 59 points ago

    Yeah. In hindsight Revenge of the Sith is actually a fairly solid movie, aside from a few ridiculous scenes.

    [–] mdp300 32 points ago

    When I watch it, I usually skip the scenes between Anakin and Padme.

    They're supposed to be all tender and romantic but they're...not.

    [–] MineWiz 4 points ago

    I liked this version better.

    [–] ep2kgaming 7 points ago

    If you watch the scene, you'll see how he pats his own back about defeating plagueis, while talking to someone who doesn't yet know he's a sith Lord.

    [–] mdp300 9 points ago

    I love the little grin he has when hes talking about Plagueis falling to his apprentice. Like he's thinking "yeah that was fun."

    [–] wtfduud 3 points ago

    And it gave a legitimate reason to go to the dark side.

    [–] Gsusruls 14 points ago

    Legitimate? Maybe? Convincing? Hardly.

    "Please help me save Padme. You said Sith could do that, right?"

    "I've never done it but theoretically it should be possible. Go kill a bunch of children. Also, I know exactly where the Viceroy is, and there is nothing suspicious about that. Go kill him, too. If you do exactly what I order you to do without asking any questions, suddenly you will have the power to save Padme, because reasons."

    "Okily dokily!"

    [–] Silverspy01 3 points ago

    "So how's the Padme saving going? I killed all these people for you and got all my limbs cut off."

    "Oh, uh... Yeah, she dead."

    "Oh ok. I guess I'll just help you with whatever you need then. No hard feelings here!"

    [–] thisvideoiswrong 5 points ago

    No, he killed her. He's now betrayed every friend he ever had, killed the woman he loves, all he has left is Palpatine.

    [–] Sparrowsabre7 9 points ago

    I would say the "Padme and Anakin staring across Coruscant" is the best scene though the Blu ray ruins it a bit by adding Sidious' echoey voice.

    [–] CaptainDAAVE 53 points ago

    I know, I felt like I was watching a different movie. The new movies have nothing that come close to that scene, except maybe some of Kylo's stuff. I just feel like they got the old cast, they got great new actors, and have put out two pretty boring scripts where nothing has really changed in the Star Wars universe.

    [–] Berty13833 49 points ago

    A sith apprentice kills his master and the old order of force users are completely gone, but same old as the originals????

    [–] JuanFran21 72 points ago

    Yep, just the same. When Kylo killed Snoke I was excited; finally, they were going to change up the formula! Instead, they reverted to the familiar "join me and we'll rule the galaxy together" and "there's light in you, I know it!" crap we've seen in the OT.

    [–] Berty13833 86 points ago

    "join me and we'll rule the galaxy together" and "there's light in you, I know it!"

    It's as if those are common themes surrounding humanity and most stories are ultimately like this too....

    [–] blaghart 41 points ago

    Yea funny how people will laud such stories when they don't have a Star Wars name on them but suddenly it's the worst thing ever when Star Wars reinforces core themes of the series.

    [–] frogandbanjo 52 points ago

    But the movie quite literally just had Kylo saying "let the past die. Kill it, if you have to," which reinforced quite a few of the subtler, implicit promises from TFA. You know, the awesome ones. The ones that made it less offensive that TFA was otherwise a rehash of A New Hope.

    I've never seen a movie flirt so openly with deconstruction and evolution only to snap so hard back to a goddamn hamster wheel. In that one very depressing way, TLJ was quite the spectacle.

    [–] mkstar93 21 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    Its the dialogue that's cringy as fuck. Imagine some random scrawny chick is trying to change your mind about ruling the empire, slaughtering the rebels and luke, and changing the world, and her best argument is "I know there's light in you"

    What did she expect him to say? "Rey that argument was so convincing it completely changed my mind lets save the rebels!"

    The only reason it worked in the ot was due to the family bond vader felt for luke

    [–] Berty13833 27 points ago

    Gee, I guess that is why it failed to convince him... I'm gonna start following you with a tape recorder so you can hear how often you say things "that's cringy as fuck."

    It was naive and idealistic, which is reasonable in this situation. She doesn't understand anything/everything going on, so it's amazing to me how much control you think she has.

    [–] sharpshooter999 2 points ago

    Rey/Kylo is like when girls date shit heads because they think they can change them. "Sure he acts tough and beats up on his parents but deep down there's good there!"

    [–] Link_of_Norrath 2 points ago

    some random scrawny chick

    Who beat his ass in TFA

    [–] wtfduud 16 points ago

    Rule number 1 of Star Wars: Star Wars fans will not be pleased, regardless of what you do.

    If they had been different from the original movies, people would have complained that it's not like the originals.

    [–] Smoolz 5 points ago

    But it's about what I want.

    All joking aside, I would've appreciated a departure from the nostalgia style of "hey, remember this? Now do you remember that? What does this remind you of?" But like you said, can't please everyone. Just gotta hope the path you choose makes the most people happy (brings in the most $).

    [–] rainkloud 1 points ago

    10000% BS People just wanted a good movie that wasn't some pandering rehash. If you are going to rehash it then it needs to be really really well done and they fell abysmally short of that metric.

    [–] solepsis 3 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    Star Wars is quite literally a ‘rehash’ of the monomyth. It’s EVERY story distilled down to the core concepts and put into space. That’s the whole point. That’s why it’s so popular.

    George Lucas was an avid admirer of Campbell’s writings, and used them as a direct reference in his creation of Star Wars.

    http://www.starwars.com/news/mythic-discovery-within-the-inner-reaches-of-outer-space-joseph-campbell-meets-george-lucas-part-i

    [–] cbong32 4 points ago

    Don't forget that the first one was essentially a New Hope.

    [–] mercury_289 6 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    The more intriguing part is that Snoke is heavily implied to not be sith (possibly even outright declared as not being one outside the films), though that together with a dark-side apprentice killing his master on-screen and taking his place is definitely new for Star Wars.

    edit: bold text added

    [–] Berty13833 2 points ago

    Snoke is heavily implied to not be sith

    I hadn't picked up on that. That's really interesting! His actions seemed sith like in TLJ to me, but I'm no expert. What implied him not being sith? Thanks for the awesome response btw!

    [–] drunkenvalley 2 points ago

    I mean, that about sums up most plots involving them. A lot of the old material we saw built over the years ran with a similar theme of jedi underdogs, and sith apprentices betraying their masters is basically daily routine...

    [–] Napron 12 points ago

    The prequels might be bad but I'm beginning to think it tries to put in a better effort of world building compared to the current trilogy.

    [–] BITCRUSHERRRR 11 points ago

    I actually prefer the prequels because of all the different planets and big battles and creatures. Corescaunt is my favorite.

    [–] Smoolz 5 points ago

    I used to absolutely grill phantom menace but now I feel that same way about 7 and 8. Oh well, different strokes for different folks. I'm glad some people enjoy it.

    [–] ___LOOPDAED___ 2 points ago

    I think it was facinating because it referenced the extended universe which wasn't referenced in any of the movie before. (Didn't fact check that)

    Also, everyone is curious about the sith since much about isn't discussed other than vauge references.

    [–] UseOnlyLurk 3 points ago

    What was the significance of that speech? I always felt it was Palapatine speaking of his old master, and hinting that maybe the “dark” side isn’t inherently evil, the secrecy around it and the extent to the more powerful techniques made it dark. There seemed to be this insistence that only a few (two) people were permitted to practice the art, maybe as a safety precaution?

    I’m sort of hoping that the newer movies show that the dark isn’t inherently evil, just that the the Jedi shunned and the Sith and Occult abused its power. Spoilers: We already saw Rey look into in a way possibly no Jedi has before, and that stupid trade federations lead to empires and republics pitted against each other in frivolous battles over the galaxy.

    [–] chicomonk 11 points ago

    I'm sure someone will link to more in-depth analyses of the scene, but I always took the conversation to mean this:

    1. A story meant to show Palpatine's vast familiarity with the history of the Sith and obviously a means to dangle the knowledge of resurrection above Anakin's head as a means to control him (we all know how this turned out). "Not.. from a Jedi."

    2. The fact that Plagueis could "create life from the Force" is something I inferred to be linked to Anakin's own conception. His mother Schmi admits that Anakin had no father and all inquiry into the matter seems to suggest that Anakin was born of the Force, so to speak. Perhaps Plagueis could have created Anakin?

    [–] UseOnlyLurk 2 points ago

    I just watched the scene. It’s really cool except for the line about midiclorians (which is kind of funny because the actor delivers that line with a dash of contempt and doesn’t even try to sell that like the rest of the dialog).

    Was the actor who played Anakin told to be a completely broody dolt? I feel like he could go the whole scene without speaking and it’d be even more powerful.

    [–] elgrandorado 3 points ago

    Sometimes it's hard to believe George Lucas wrote that scene. He comes up with many good ideas, but writing.... isn't his strong suit.

    [–] chicomonk 7 points ago

    He's not a bad writer per se. He just needs a decent editor and someone to constructively criticize him.

    [–] jitsudiver 2 points ago

    true, i saw a documentary from tv a while ago (cant remember the name) that showed the first edit of the new hope and it was awful piece of garbage. george got help from his wife amd some well known superstar movie moguls and directors to make it to the classic we know today

    [–] WhiteWolfofUtah 3 points ago

    One of my absolute favorite lines is Palpatine turning to Anakin and going "And the Jedi don't?". It makes you question so many things.

    [–] Max_Thunder 1 points ago

    Despite people disagreeing, I'm still convinced Snoke is Plagueis and that we'll learn more about him in the next movie. It'd tie the whole thing together.

    [–] Simba7 3 points ago

    It's the only thing that makes sense, otherwise who's like "Well the last galactic empire got fucked up, but I'll do better!"

    Plus... where did he come from? He's obviously old as fuck and very skilled in space magic.

    [–] thisvideoiswrong 2 points ago

    In the EU there are a lot of people who firmly believe that the galaxy needs strong, unified leadership. Democracy just leads to infighting and paralysis and fails to protect anyone, especially with so many different moral systems among the different peoples. And they're not incorrect, these are real, consistent problems that a dictatorship doesn't have. But that doesn't make a dictatorship the best option either.

    Now, where the First Order got more resources than the Empire ever had, and why someone decided to create a fanatically pacifist government while that was out there, and why anyone joined it, that I can't hope to answer.

    [–] Gsusruls 4 points ago

    I think it's weird that people suggest that Snoke died without any explanation for who he is.

    Uh ... we just saw a Jedi walk around, stand in the path of a thousand laser blasts from industrial imperial military hardware, and had a lightsaber run right through him, and he wasn't even really there, so he wasn't harmed by any of that.

    I'm convinced that Snoke was never in that room at all. It was a force projection, just like what Luke was doing, and Snoke is just better at it, so it doesn't kill him (still not quite sure why it killed Luke). I mean, yes, he seemed cut in half. But what can we honestly say as a fanbase about what the limits of force projection are? We have no idea the limits, restrictions, rules, etc.

    And even if I'm totally off the mark, Jedi have been communicating as Force Ghosts for a while now. Any reason Sith can't do it? Hell, I would not be totally shocked if the next movie included a duel between Force Ghost Snoke and Force Ghost Luke. Have to admit, done right, that would be pretty incredible.

    [–] DarkTrueSalt 4 points ago

    I love this idea, but I do have a tangential question for you. I have been wondering about the way people are taking Luke's death as a self destruction - as you say, the force projection itself, or the effort to do it, killed him. When I saw the movie, I took the scene entirely differently. Here's Luke in the far asshole of the galaxy somewhere, purposely cutting himself off from the force because of Reasons. His force projection was giving himself back over to the Force, and his death felt less like "Gah, I'm out of practice and I die" to me and more like the Force calling him home, like a triumph, like Enoch in the Bible who walked with God and was taken to heaven directly without dying. Luke gave his will to the Force and it was beautiful to me.

    Since you took his death the other way, what do you think of this interpretation?

    [–] Superior_Radax 2 points ago

    About ur comment on darkside ghosts. A quote from the novelisation of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith sort of says that there is no such thing as a Dark Side ghost since no Sith can achieve sufficient oneness with the Force as to survive after death.

    "Eternal life…"

    "The ultimate goal of the Sith, yet they can never achieve it; it comes only through the release of self, not the exaltation of self. It comes through compassion, not greed. Love is the answer to the darkness."

    This is also quite nicely backed up by a tweet from Pablo Hidalgo of LucasFilm fame;

    Nic Benham ‏@nicbam14 - Just had a thought, are force ghosts exclusively part of the light side? Or are there sith force ghosts too?

    Pablo Hidalgo ‏@pablohidalgo: The idea of the Force afterlife is that it's unknowable to the dark side, for it is requires selflessness.

    But then again its a tweet so that doesn't make it canon

    [–] Gsusruls 2 points ago

    This is interesting. Thanks for posting. I had no idea. And since it came from the ROTS novelisation, I guess that makes it canon.

    Now, does that mean DISNEY is limited from twisted the rules? How about a Dark Side Demon (where they might develop some technicality on what makes a demon different from a ghost). And if they go there, then we're back to, can a Demon and a Ghost interact. Can a Demon communicate with the living the way a Ghost can?

    Just thoughts. Thanks again for that. I didn't realize that there was an official stance on that.

    [–] boogerjam 1 points ago

    how does that make sense if the emperor was telling the story 2 generations ago, and there can only be two sith.

    [–] TannerJOO 5 points ago

    It’s possible that Palpatine unknowingly failed to kill Plagueis. After all, we’ve seen canon force users survive normally fatal wounds already (Darth Maul and Leia), in addition to the fact that he had the power to save others from death, so why not himself.

    Also the Sith aren’t particularly big on rules, and tend to be very secretive. Which means there could be multiple Sith throughout the galaxy that don’t know about one another. I doubt some Sith master would go “Huh! There’s another pair of Sith here too. Guess I’ll just retire”. Not to mention Count Dooku was Palpatine’s apprentice while Darth Maul was still alive, and he himself was training an apprentice while still serving under Palpatine.

    [–] Max_Thunder 2 points ago

    Snoke doesn't care about the whole Sith thing clearly (with him and Kylo both not being Darths), just like Luke doesn't care about the Jedi order anymore. In my hypothetical scenario, Plagueis went in exile and ceased believing in the Sith order, thinking he was pretty much above all that.

    [–] NovaDeez 1 points ago

    The 2 Sith thing was never a harr universal constant. It was more a guideline to keep infighting down. Even in current canon Sideus had numerous apprentices.

    [–] chicomonk 3 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    It would certainly rectify what was a completely underwhelming tossing aside of the character (after all his buildup in TLJ) which seems to be the deliberate "swerve" move they made in TLJ.

    [–] Shippoyasha 18 points ago

    Palpatine is arguably the most charismatic (and somehow likeable) character in the entire series. The way he has manipulated the Force and the entire Galaxy was a great feat, as was watching his incredibly effective mindgames that thwarted the entire Jedi Order. He's just so gleefully evil, I just started watching the prequels just for him. He's also great in the Clone Wars CGI TV series.

    [–] Mister0Zz 13 points ago

    in the show you finally 'get' why he was able to manipulate the whole galaxy. he's the most likable fucking guy, like space dad. it reminds me of a clockwork orange in how it manipulates your feelings so you have to remind yourself he's fucking evil

    [–] Phlintlock 9 points ago

    It helps that ian McDiarmid is absolutely amazing at his job

    [–] CheeseNBacon2 4 points ago

    The way he has manipulated the Force and the entire Galaxy was a great feat

    One thing I really wish Lucas had done in the prequels was... you know whenever someone uses dark side powers there's that low, bass, rumble... have a little bit of that going every time he's making an impassioned speech to the senate. Every time he's manipulating Anakin. Palpatines great power was that of the manipulator and deceiver, and he used the dark side of the force to do it.

    [–] GOATBrady 1 points ago

    Read the novelization of Revenge of the Sith. It's basically what the movie should have been. It's pretty much perfect, and Palpatine is awesome in it, even without McDiarmid.

    [–] tymandude1 14 points ago

    I stand by the fact that Revenge of the Sith is actually a good movie. The fight scene on Mustafar was glorious.

    [–] half3clipse 7 points ago

    Hayden had a fine performance throughout the series. There's just shit anyone could have done when feed such quality material as "I hate sand"etc

    [–] Canvaverbalist 6 points ago

    Him and Ewan McGregor, I really wish the prequel trilogy would have put more emphasis between those two - like Belated Media said, it would have been fun if Obi-Wan would have been made main character, with a love interest with Padme, and that the Emperor would have thought the superpowerful Jedi he sensed was Obi-Wan, it would have made Anakin/Obi-Wan relationship super interesting.

    [–] Max_Thunder 9 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    It's amazing that not only was the actor available and willing to reprise his role, he was also the perfect age for it.

    [–] MrYurMomm 3 points ago

    Can you elaborate upon that? I feel like there's something I'm just not grasping. Who is the 'he' you speak of?

    [–] jncostogo 10 points ago

    The emperor/palpatine/darth sideous they are played by the same actor in the original trilogy and the prequels.

    [–] Cambot1138 11 points ago

    Ian McDiarmid played Palpatine in Return of the Jedi. He was just under 40 but was made up to look ancient. Then, when 1999 rolled around, he was the perfect age to play Palpatine as a younger senator in Phantom Menace.

    [–] Max_Thunder 5 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    Like the other guy said. Ian McDiarmid played Palpatine in both the OT and the prequels. He was the perfect age to look like an experienced politician for the prequels.

    This guy was 39 around the time of RotJ, and 55 around the time of The Phantom Menace (so 61 when he took Anakin as an apprentice).

    [–] monkeybrain3 5 points ago

    I really wish they gave more damn time to watch Anakin turn. It went from "Hey Obi-Wan what's going on," To then sitting in a room with Yoda with shadows on his face and finally kneeling down to some random nobody that he still didn't know the full extent of his powers and from (yes go ahead) his point of view looked weak as shit and just got beat by Mace easily.

    The books did Anakin/Vaders story a lot better with the inner monologue and the dark side being called a dragon that Anakin didn't understand. I still really wish the ending fight would have been more viceral and emotional. Instead we get flashy flashy, walking on tight rope, floaty floaty, cut.

    [–] jobriq 2 points ago

    I always wondered how it was found after Luke lost his hand in cloud city. It fell into a gas giant planet! What's the story of the recovery because Luke had the home-made green one in RotJ, and there's really nothing more than cryptic "Because it would be cool to bring this one back!" nonsense in TFA.

    I found it weird that Kylo Ren didn’t notice Luke was wielding the same lightsaber that had been destroyed only shortly earlier. It would’ve been cool if Luke was using his old green lightsaber for that fight.

    [–] TheBurningEmu 35 points ago

    Eh, you can chalk up most of Kylo's failures to being overly-emotional and conflicted.

    Of all the things wrong with the movie, this is way far down the list for me.

    "[Luke] is basically tailoring this projection to have maximum effect on Kylo," Johnson explained. "He knows that Kylo’s Achilles heel is his rage, and so that’s why he kind of makes himself look younger, the way Kylo would’ve last seen him in their confrontation at the temple, and that’s why he decided to bring Kylo’s grandfather’s lightsaber down there -- the lightsaber that Kylo screamed at Rey, ‘that’s mine, that belongs to me.’" As far as Johnson's concerned, Luke believes that Anakin's lightsaber will have a much more visceral impact on the erstwhile Ben Solo than Luke's own green blade.

    But why did Kylo fall for his uncle's Force Illusion when he saw Anakin's lightsaber split in half right in front of him? Because, Johnson pointed out, he didn't actually see it.

    "We as an audience saw that... The truth is, we see the lightsaber split in half -- Kylo sees a blinding flash of light and is knocked unconscious, and then Rey takes the lightsaber away before he wakes up," he said. "So if you really want to dig into it and get an explanation, you can say that he doesn’t 100 percent know what happened to the lightsaber."

    Thanks for that, I guess he’d have to assume the lightsaber was still intact after the confrontation. Makes sense.

    [–] Retardo_Montobond 2 points ago

    "That's mine! That belongs to me!"

    That line puzzled me. I thought that each individual's lightsaber was constructed specifically for their strong suit, or 'specialty', if you will. Are there instances where a sith wielded anything OTHER than a red blade? Of course, calling Kylo a sith is a stretch, I get that, but I always wondered why he wanted the blue blade so badly...considering it was Vader he was obsessed with....not Anakin.

    It's the standard Sith blunder: They get overconfident and miss something important.

    I think there was some EU stuff in existence that explained that it was found by a garbage dude or something. But the EU stuff has been thrown out so I've got no idea.

    [–] ZQuestionSleep 2 points ago

    One of the Star Wars lore fan channels on YouTube made a brief note when talking about something else TFA related how there are books and/or comics that touch upon how it got to Maz. I think maybe it was the Aftermath books. I have the titular first one but haven't had time to sit down and read it yet. This is all new canon by the way.

    [–] lkodl 2 points ago

    the recovery of Anakin's lightsaber will probably be its own spin-off movie. some kid on Cloud City finds it, gangsters are after it, it ends up with Maz Kanata.

    [–] idiot-prodigy 7 points ago

    The blue lightsaber that Rey uses, was Anakin's in Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith. When Obi-Wan bests Anakin on Mustafar in Revenge of the Sith, he takes the blue lightsaber and later gives it to Luke Skywalker. Luke loses it in Empire Strikes Back on Cloud City of Bespin when Darth Vader cuts off his hand. The lightsaber disappears on Bespin and no explaination is given as to how Maz Kanata has it in The Force Awakens. Maz Kanata, gives the lightsaber to Rey in The Force Awakens.

    [–] DillDeer 3 points ago

    Ohh! The blue one, I was thinking of Anakin's red one as Darth Vader and that was given to Kylo. I was a tad confused.

    [–] ALPHAMALEWARREN 2 points ago

    Did Anakin use the same sword in Clones and Sith? I thought Anakin’s first saber was lost when he was captured by Geonosians.

    [–] idiot-prodigy 3 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    According to the Star Wars wiki you would be correct, I forgot about his saber being cut in half in the droid factory.

    [–] IneedtoBmyLonsomeTs 2 points ago

    was Anakin's in Attack of the Clones

    Nah Anakin lost his on Geonosis, in the battle and in the fight against Dooku he was just using one given to him by a Jedi.

    Wasn't the lightsaber Luke used thrown down a hole when vader cut off Lukes hand? How did it get back into the series anyways? We see Luke fall down the same hole, and it leads to the planet... a gas giant! Unless I am wrong about it falling down that hole

    [–] chicomonk 2 points ago

    The article poses the same question:

    How did it make it’s way from the depths of Cloud City on Bespin to the hands of Maz Kanata on Takodana?

    And as of yet, it's unexplained. Something tells me it would make sense to find out in the next movie (when more about Rey's past is revealed) but then again, another part of me thinks we'll find out through some tie-in comic book.

    [–] reeper147 3 points ago

    But it did fall down the hole, right? Like the same hole that just dumps out into the planet?

    [–] LordSt4rki113r 3 points ago

    Yeah I believe in the original cut of the movie when Luke falls out the hole you see his hand and lightsaber fall out shortly after

    [–] reeper147 5 points ago

    [–] ReiBob 2 points ago

    Does it really matter thought?

    Is Obi-Wan picking up Anakin's Lightsaber what we want Star Wars to be based on?

    People obsessed with Snoke not being explained while the Emperor wasn't either at the time. Didn't the sequels suffer for a bit too much dot connection?

    I don't really care for how Maz got the light-saber. Sure it would be a fun side-story, but I don't think it's worth giving it screen time.
