Vader's height
« on: June 04, 2005, 11:55:01 am »
Am I the only one who has noticed that Darth Vader was really tall in SW ep. 4-6, while Anakin in ep. 1-3 was merely average heigh (OK, he was a kid in the first ep.)? What does that mean?

What if ep. 1-3 are really an elaborate hoax with the purpose of making us believe that Anakin is Vader, while he's really someone else?

Or perhaps he's just wearing really high heels, I don't know.

or perhaps it has something to do with the fact taht in episodes 1-3 he has his own legs on him, and in episodes 4-6 he presumably has some high-test cybernetic legs on him to replace the ones that got burned off in lava at the end of episode 3.

that may have been a spoiler, but I don't care since that was the worst movie I've ever seen anyway.

True, true.. that MAY be the explanation. But he would look pretty stupid with legs about a foot taller than they should be, proportionally.

I'd like to see an underground fan remix in which they edit out all of hte parts containing either Padme or Anakin.

take that stuff out, and you'd have a pretty damned good short action film.

I don't know, maybe I was just expecting the worst, but I kind of liked ep3. It actually tied in to ep 4-6 in a somewhat interesting way. I mean it's no masterpiece (neither are parts 4-6 for that matter, imho) but compared to 1 and 2 it was good.

terminal packet loss took the words right out of my mouth when it comes to their take on Ep3.

it bums me out a little...I REALLY tried to like it, but George Lucas really should have just left well enough alone, or gotten a more competent director and some better scriptwriters to tackle the project....then again, perhaps my standards are a little high...Return of the Jedi (I know, it's the worst of the original 3) was the very first movie I EVER saw in the theater, so the first three movies are basically sacred to me.

That review's kind of dumb. Why do all these libertarian Neo-Con apologists sympathize with Darth Vader and the evil empire? I mean, are they so evil and twisted themselves that they admire a fictional portrayal of a bunch of old, rich, white British men hurtling through space in giant ugly spaceships slaughtering and opressing everyone in their way? It reminds me of liberals who think Nixon and Reagan were cool.

And anyone who says episode III was worse than I and II is fucking lying. It's the difference between The Da Vinci Code and the complete works of Tom Clancy.
