The Star Wars Film

For one thing, Star Wars has been described as a geeky film. Hmmm and to think of it, I enjoyed all six films. So that means I'm a geek in some way. So anyway, I thought of it that the films themselves have been written in such a way, that describes a space adventure with a LOT of real concepts into it- especially in the arena of politics.

The story is focused on the light vs. the darkness which took place in the Jedi battles against the dark force users. So we have the Jedi prophecy of the "chosen one" which was said to be Anakin Skywalker. Of course, in the third episode, Palpatine may actually be Anakin Skywalker's "father" if he figured out how to arrange the midi-chlorians in a way that life could be conceived in a woman's womb, or perhaps Palpatine is really his father. These were all the prequel trilogy to explain the existence of episodes 4, 5 and 6. I just find it weird how 4, 5 and 6 came out first then 1, 2 and 3.

If there was any villain more interesting, it was actually Palpatine. He was a Sith lord in disguise who manipulated both the Republic and the Trade Federation. In the Republic, he was known as Palpatine, to the others he was simply known as Darth Sidious. Scheming and manipulative, he took every step to ensure charter change from democracy to imperial communism, which he is president for life and gaining the title of emperor. In the 3rd movie do we see Palpatine actually fight and reveal how he got deteriorated into a disfigured old man. He of course manipulated everyone especially his trusted generals. He also pre-planned events which may have included the destruction of Alderaan, which he gave the task to Wilhuff Tarkin ahead of time.

Anakin Skywalker is on the tragic side. He falls for Padme who is actually 5 years older than he is. Both of them had the forbidden love as Jedi knights are celibate. Eventually Padme gets pregnant with the twins whom we know as Luke and Leia, and we discover how Leia got adopted into the Organa household and Luke was raised on Tatooine. As a character, his rise, his fall and redemption were pretty interesting. How? He sided with Palpatine for that long, waited for the opportunity to defeat him and all. However Palpatine foiled him at times by putting Wilhuff Tarkin in charge over him to ensure his plan to blow up Coruscant doesn't succeed.

And eventually we have Luke and Leia, who were reunited but had no idea of their sibling relationship, which resulted in a short-term incest, which can happen in real life. Han Solo of course later discovers that they're siblings and Luke's his future brother-in-law. Luke eventually rises from a zero to a hero, especially when he manages to redeem Darth Vader from the dark side, which Darth Sidious was defeated soon ending the empire.
