    I agree with Jargo regarding Pernilla. She rocked the hizzy!

    I actually liked the part where Rick kept saying "f**k" all the time! He's such a potty mouth... it's amazing he has time to eat when his gob's all a flappin' like that!

    I love the opening on the TF ship and I love the battle scenes in and around Theed as well as the Senate scenes on Coruscant.

    I loved the Pod Race but my favorate part is Obi-Wan and Darth Maul going at full speed ahead.
    The Force is strong with this one.

    Of course, that's my opinion I could be wrong.

    This is interesting to me, because while now true, originally there was no Qui-Gon at all and his whole part in the film was Obi-Wan's, so it seems like Lucas did originally mean for this to explain the older Obi-Wan's comments about Anakin being a great pilot.

    Anakin still has two whole movies to show Obi that hes a great pilot.

    "When I first met your father, he was already a great pilot but I was amazing at how strongly the Force was with him."

    That's pretty much OB1's exact quote. However, we know he has a tendency to stretch the truth. Maybe Qui-Gonn told him the whole story of the podrace and he's taking his word for it. Then of course there is also the story of Anakin flying into the Droid Control ship and blowing it up which I'm sure was related to Ob1 with much excitement by Anakin himself. His realization of Anakin's Force potential could have come while on their way back to Coruscant or it could just be OB1 taking credit for Qui-Gonn's discovery.

    "I took it upon myself to train him as a Jedi."

    Definitely a twisting of the truth, however not completely inaccurate since at the end of Ep1 OB1 did decide to train Anakin "with or without the Council's permission."

    The reason I find OB1 so interesting is that he is slightly two-faced and thus very much like people I know in real life. He's a truly flawed hero, but a hero nonetheless.

    Obi-Wan didn't see Anakin in the Pod Race or fly in and blow up the Droid Control Ship but that doesn't mean Obi-Wan won't see Anakin fly a ship (after all there is two more films).

    Of course, that's my opinion I could be wrong.

    Thumbs up

    My favorite part is the deleted waterfall scene. George was soooo close to offing Jar Jar in that scene. Everytime I rewatch it I secretly hope it will end differently with a big orange puddle at the base of the waterfall.

    Barada, your quote doesn't say that Obi-Wan actually views Anakin being a great pilot, only that he WAS a great pilot. For all we know, Obi-wan is referring to him being told about Anakin being a podracer or piloting a Naboo fighter. I think there will be just enough room to maneuver in that ROTJ line.

    I don't know what's the big deal with this pilot controversy. How would Obi-Wan not know about the pod race or the Naboo battle? Where do you think he was, testing everyone for midicholorians? I can just imagine it now …
