The Jedi Are Terrible!

The Jedi are terrible. Yeah, I said it! Watching The Phantom Menace the other day, I watched the scene where Anakin Skywalker has to say goodbye to his mother, Shmi, and I found myself appalled by Qui-Gon’s actions.

The Jedi are so oblivious, guided by their “dogmatic” views which turned them into hypocritical monsters. Their fear of love and attachment led to Anakin’s eventual fall to the dark side.

Just think about what the Jedi did to him! The Jedi forced him to leave his mother, still a slave, behind to fend for herself. Qui-Gon didn’t at all think to use his powers or his status as a Jedi to free Shmi. He allowed her to remain a slave and eventually she, staying on Tatooine, would become a victim of the harshness of the planet.

Would Anakin have turned to the dark side if Qui-Gon hadn’t taken him from his mother? And how many other Jedi have succumbed to the darkness because of the harsh rules of the Jedi? It’s preposterous! It’s horrible. And the Jedi are to blame for so much.

I’m hoping Rey doesn’t follow the same path and creates a new Jedi Order with lighter rules. In fact, I hope she creates a new path, one that consists of the grey Jedi.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Fan Art Wednesday

It’s time for another Fan Art Wednesday! Here we go.

Sabe

In case you didn’t know it, Keira Knightley is in Star Wars. Yeah, she plays Padme’s decoy, Sabe in The Phantom Menace and this piece featuring her as one of Amidala’s handmaidens is so fascinating not only because of the beautiful outfit but the fact that it’s Knightley! I love it.

Thorin Oakenshield

I’m not a huge fan of The Hobbit movies but I have watched each movie a numerous amount of times. Seeing this portrait of Dwarven King Thorin, son of Thrain, son of Thror, is rather delightful.

Finn and Poe, John and Oscar

I can’t get enough of this picture. It’s so beautiful and it makes me so ridiculously happy for some reason. This made my day when I first saw it yesterday and it’s still making my day.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have an amazing day.

What’s Your Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy?

Over the last four decades, we have been given three different Star Wars trilogies. Each trilogy has had its outstanding moments and decisions (or characters) that we’re not particularly fond of but no one can deny the beauty of this story that has inspired and brought together generations of fans.

So, for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I wanted this to be the topic. Enjoy!

The Prequel Trilogy

Before Luke Skywalker, before the Empire and Darth Vader, the Cloud City and the magical world of the forest moon of Endor, there was the prequel trilogy; a story of Anakin Skywalker, the rise of Emperor Palpatine, and the horrifying fall of the Jedi.

There are love and darkness, politics and deception, epic lightsaber duels and Force battles, but most importantly, there’s a story that not many trilogies are able to tell; a hero’s descent into villainy. Continue reading What’s Your Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy?
