    Re: Which Star Wars movie had the best Jedi death scene?

    While my first inclination was to go for ROTS (Yes, Ki Adi Mundi's astonished reaction truly captures the scope of the betrayal), I had to settle on the original...

    Obi-Wan willingly sacrificing himself so Luke and his friends can escape shows that right to the end, he was truely the greatest jedi...

    My favorite would have to be ANH. Vader/Obi-Wan - classic Star Wars in every way. Now after seeing ROTS, I like it even more.

    ROTJ would be next. The Vader and Yoda scenes had heavy impact on me back in the day!

    I really enjoyed the ROTS and TPM scenes for the intensity and feeling. Such great action sequences (especially the Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan/Maul duel).

    AOTC jedi deaths seemed hardly noticable, and had no impact on me whatsoever.

    I voted for TPM, though I could have just as easily voted for ROTJ for Vader's/Anakin's death. For some reason, I did not anticipate Qui-Gon's death until shortly before it happened, and it still kind of stung. Perhaps it was because every other part of the battle was at a low point as well.

    For ROTJ, I recall throughout the movie wondering if Luke could bring Vader back to the good side. When Vader finally destroyed the Emperor, I was thinking how great it was to now have him on the good side. So, to then see him die was quite sad. Poor Luke. Orphaned again.

    ROTS? Yeah... Ask this same question again in a year after the adrenaline has died down.

    Anyway, ROTJ is the best death scene in the saga. It rates the best for overall meaning (it had some) and in its execution. The sheer amount of emotion conveyed with an immovable mask using "mime" techniques and lighting is unmatched by any other film with the Star Wars name on it. Both the lead up to Vader's death and the aftermath contribute greatly to the logical choice of ROTJ.

    ROTS easily, so many die, so many different ways. I wish they would have shown more of em die.

    Yeah, I see what you mean. The first one gets...shot. Then the next one gets...um, shot. Then the next one gets...er um, shot... then the fourth one..........

    RotS. Aayla Secura gets hers. Finally.
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.

    Dooku gets decaptitated, Stass gets blown away on a speeder, Ki-Adi and Aylaa get shot, Mace chucked out a window, many gets slaughtered by Anakin via hologram we see, and the youngsters too. Awesome.....

    Re: Which Star Wars movie had the best Jedi death scene?

    After seeing ROTS, I think Obi-Wan's sacrifice in ANH just means that much more. He did his duty to the Jedi and the galaxy, right up until the end.

    For some reason though, the first thing I thought of when I saw this pole was Jango Fett taking out Coleman Trebor. Poor fool never had a chance.
