I have just finished the last Star Wars movie (well, as in the 6 movies. I have been told there are other movies and books…. Which I find just crazy)
And I had my normal criticism for this movie
- when things crash they blow up way to easily
- the music is the same
- the fighting was mediocre.
But then the movie ended and I think I sold part of my soul to George Lucas (once again I’m convinced he is the devil) because I gave into this whole idea of the force and realized how awesome Star Wars actually is.
I think I really just bought into the idea that Darth Vader was always good and just went over to the dark side because he was power hungry and thought the only way to be happy was to be the most powerful person ever.
I probably just think this because Machiavellian ethics is my favorite (well when considering the generic list of ethics) and I think it is completely okay to do whatever necessary to get to the top. For Darth Vader to get to the top he just needed to kill a large amount of individuals (and honestly… he really didn’t have anything else to live for)
So even though I didn’t really enjoy any of the movies individual I think I like all the movies together (well maybe just episodes 3-6).
Conclusion: Even though Star Wars has a really simple plot and nothing really happens in each individual movie overall it is pretty good and I’ll probably watch them again (well I would never rent all of them again.. but I would definitely consider watching them if they were on TV and I had nothing better to do).
