I was, based on a conversation that Jaymiel and I had over dinner*, this close to going out, buying a whole bunch of Star Wars Legos and using them to redo Episode III, only this time it wouldn't suck. I'd do it in photonovel style,much like Irregular Webcomic** - using the digital camera that we've put on the registry - and, I don't know, post the dialogue on the bottom or something. I had it all freaking blocked out, people. All about the hypocritical nature of both the Jedi Order and the Sith Lords tumbling down their respective paths to disaster, with Anakin trapped in the middle trying to find a middle way and failing miserably. A real tragedy, not the rush-to-the-black-life-support-suit that we actually got. And dialogue that didn't make people cringe.
What happened? I don't have the cash for Star Wars Legos, I don't have the time, either - and it's a little obsessive, don't you think?
George Lucas is dead to me.
*Jaymiel (I paraphrase and condense): "So, you've got the Jedi, who are good, and clueless, and have no plan. Then, there are the Sith, who are evil, but who have both a clue and a plan. So, we have Anakin, who is good, but also has a clue, and then he gets a plan. So, the scene you're imagining is where he goes to the Jedi Temple and tells the Jedi kids that it looks bad, but it's all for the best, really, and that they have to trust him to get them out: but, being good, and clueless, they attack. And he at first tries to just hold them off, but then he loses his temper - like Sith do - and eventually kills them."
