This week, the topic is Star Wars.

Okay, I'm so glad that's the topic today because yesterday I clicked on an article someone had retweeted in my Twitter feed yesterday talking about the Prequel Trilogy that also linked to a fan theory about Padmé's death. And I really wanted to write a blog post about my thoughts on the article and the Prequels. I mean, I guess it's not a long post.

Because pretty much I agree with the post--I do think that terrible acting, chemistry that didn't work well amongst people that were supposed to be in love, and Jar-Jar were pretty much why I didn't care for the movies (plus midichlorians seemed a little deus ex machina). Watching the video below rekindled my adoration for the story of the Revenge of the Sith, and the backstory that linked the first three movies (IV, V, VI) to the second three (I, II, III). Or vice versa, I guess. (There's no Elsa in the video, don't worry, you're safe.)

So, now I want to go re-watch the Prequels. And I think being able to logically separate the bits I like and don't like, as I'm slightly older than when they first came out (III came out 10 years ago! TEN YEARS AGO!), and get more enjoyment out of them.
