Qui Gon is supposed to be the wise but renegade master (with the awesome long hair), imo Liam Neeson is always welcome, i'll take 10 movies of Jar Jar Binks instead of Hayden Fucken Christensen.

First of all, what was up with the names of these Jedi? I mean, Kit (Kid) Fisto?
Second, not knocking Neeson as an actor, but the character, like caspian said, was really inconsistent. At least have him do a better job at guiding Obi by having Obi do all the main chores instead of waiting on the ship, speaking to all the unimportant characters, saying little to the important characters, etc. Better dialogue would have helped tremendously, too.

Also, I hope I'm not one of the only guys that likes Christensen in this way: he as an actor probably isn't awful (haven't seen his other movies, so I may be dead wrong), but his lines were horrible. I mean, what was he supposed to work with? His character was thrust into a movie with no real sets, no real dialogue, no real emotion, and really really bad writing. He had practically nothing to work with. Even in the fan edits of those last two prequel movies it can only clean up so much. It's not just him, though, as everyone sucks because of all the above-mentioned. I for one think he had a great look to him with the baggy eyes and longer hair in III - good sort of descending look without overdoing anything.

Of course, Christensen is not that bad, the only actor who was decent in the 2nd trilogy was McGregor, even Jackson, Portman were terrible. I blame Lucas!

For sure. I mean, what the fuck was Portman supposed to do with 'I've been dying a little bit each day since you came back into my life". Puke factory.

If Christensen was in my life, I'd be dying too.

Yeah I really despised the whole "She has lost the will to live" plot device.

Its shit like this that made me hate the third movie so much. So many important things happen, and they have no good reasoning behind them.

You guys need to see the fanedits of that movie. Takes out all the :ugh: and makes a little more sense of it. Also cuts out the "nnnnnnuuuuuuuuuuOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO". (I'm talking about the 86 minute one - a little short by SW standards, but cleans up A LOT).

IIRC it's this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqQxa-b9qc0

If you think our Politions have put us in debt, this is how much the people of the republic had to pay for Palpatine's Deathstar.

That made the most amount of sense in all the 3 prequels. I was like "finally. Someone in the movie is feeling how I feel watching it."

They can give Anakin a robotic arm but they cant save a girl who just learned that everything sucks from dying because she lost the will to live from the crushing depression of seeing George Lucas have full control over something.

She probably refused treatment. I would too. Everything sucks, nothing makes sense, you got tricked into pity sex by a guy using the worst lines in the world who is also a paranoid lunatic who killed children on 2 seperate occassions.

Id choose death too.
