Episode SPOILER III Favorite Scenes SPOILER

I went and saw Revenge of the Sith last night. If you’re worried about this movie, worry no longer. If you liked Battlefield Earth, Chronicles of Riddick, Gigli, and Howard the Duck then you’ll LOVE Revenge of the Sith. Actually, it’s a pretty good movie by my standards of pretty good movies. Here’s my favorite scenes. If you haven’t seen the movie READ NO FURTHER. You’ll spoil your movie experience and become terribly mad at me.

-Jar Jar and R2D2 doing the Charleston and Jitterbug at the party at the end.

-The oh-so-cute baby Admiral Ackbar saying, “It’s a twap!”

-The part where evil Palpatine tries to kill one hundred and one wookies to make himself a warm wookie coat.

-Palpatine using his dark side powers of energy to recharge his laptop.

-Darth Vader and Palpatine performing “It had to be you,” vaudeville style, with lightsabers.

-The part where Anakin switches the statue in the temple with a bag of dust, and then has to outrun a boulder.

-Obi-wan explaining to the cop that he was following the speed limit- from a certain point of view.

-Qui-Gonn Jinn’s ghost endorsing Frito-Lays.

-Palpatine initiating “Order 67,” which made License Tabs only 30 dollars, but at the redcution of public transportation and public services funds. That evil monster!

-The much anticipated Yoda Vs. Alf fight.

-The explanation for why “Kashyyyk” has so many y’s.

-The scene with Count Dooku flushing the Jedi Code down the toilet.

-The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man marching through Coruscant.

-General Grievous yelling at Tom Cruise that he “can’t handle the truth.”

-Senator Bail Organa arguing Resolution 365-15-1 before the Galatic Senate (The water fluoridation resolution)

-Anakin telling Padme, “I hate Mayonnaise. It’s all slimy and goopy. Unlike you, shnookums” in the most romantic scene in the movie.

-Padme craving, “bantha meat drizzled in Jawa sauce topped with Kessel vinegar and peanut butter,” during her pregnancy.

-George Lucas’s cameo as a rich, powerful, member of the Trade Federation who cares nothing for the demands and complaints of his customers.

-The scene where Obi-Wan and Anakin fail to do the Volcano Dance correctly and anger Mustafar, God of Fire. The consequences are impressive.

-George Lucas’s subtle political message when he has Anakin say, “Now I’m evil! Just like George W. Bush, President of the United States of America, who was elected not selected and who got us in an unwinnable war in Iraq, which is a quagmire just like Vietnam!”

-The discovery that the entire Separatist vs. Republic conflict was all a scheme to get oil. Sweet, sweet, oil.

-And my favorite scene: The Super Bombad Racing.
