Hi! so I know you like Star Wars and enjoy the prequels as much as the originals. Me too! what would you say to those old (men) fans that judge so hardly the prequels? I mean, I know those are not the best movies in the universe, but I think are cool enough, specially Episode III. Also what are your thoughts about Anakin? I think he's the best developed character in the series. I would love to know your impressions. Also what's your fave character in all the movies? Hugs!
I feel like the Star Wars elitists can really be assholes about the Star Wars franchise. Because to them it’s not so much ‘Here’s my opinion on the matter. I understand it’s my opinion and that’s not the be all, end all of how Star Wars should be viewed’, but rather ‘My opinion should be taken as fact. I am right, you are wrong, and anybody who actually enjoys the prequels are idiots.’ It’s completely unfair to those of us who were kids growing up watching the prequels and thinking they were cool. Possibly enjoying them MORE than the originals (while still loving the originals). I mean, to make people feel shame simply because they enjoy something and everyone makes it seem like that enjoyment is wrong or not educated enough? ESPECIALLY young girls/women, who are ALREADY shamed for having any sort of enjoyment in nerdy things? That’s fucked up. It’s why I try my very best not to legitimately take away someone’s enjoyment of something. Like I personally have a lot of issue with The Hobbit movies. I personally do not think they are anywhere near the Lord of the Rings movies’ amazingness. But that’s just my opinion. And I don’t want to make anybody feel like they are wrong for loving The Hobbit movies. This is why it’s important to criticize the content while at the same time trying NOT to criticize those that love it. It’s not an easy task. I’ve failed at it multiple times (still do, even).
I love Anakin Skywalker. He’s one of my favorite characters in the franchise (him and Obi-Wan are my favorites - that friendship tho?! UGGGGGGGH, kill me!). I love the dichotomy of good and evil in him. It’s so amazing to see him be well and truly good, which makes his downfall into darkness that much more heartbreaking. His devotion to those he loves consumes him. One of my favorite things from Episode III is how Anakin and Obi-Wan actively fight and even deny that they’re walking separate paths. And up to a point, they refuse to kill one another (Obi-Wan holds true to this, Anakin finally falls completely into darkness). Instead of finishing the job on Mustafar, Obi-Wan leaves Anakin. He can’t kill him. He just can’t. UGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH again. These two.
