That was great to watch, some of the extra questions (and answers) further solidified your points about the characters. I liked you asking them to describe the difference between Jinn and Obi-Wan
Always happy to see more of Ms Bellinger
Awesome! I had no idea this existed!
man what the fuck happend to moby? cancer is a shitty disease i guess.
It’s not so much that there’s a lack of characterization in the prequels, it’s that a character trait will be established, then shortly thereafter be completely disregarded and contradicted by the character’s actions, often in the very same scene it was first established:
Jar Jar is established as being clumsy (to the point of criminality we are later told), then he performs a super-athletic, gold-medal swan dive for no reason other than the CGI team and George Lucas thought it looked cool; Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are established as stoic and deferential, presumably because of their religion, then the second they hear a loud noise they whip out their lightsabres, ready to decapitate some motherfuckers; Padme is the regal queen of a peaceful people who don’t even have a standing army, but when it’s time for an action scene she turns into She-Rambo and has a hidden cache of blasters inside her throne; Anakin is a stupid, annoying kid who talks too much…okay, that character was consistent throughout, credit where it’s due.
