Anakin

The Jedi line-up.

Is it me or does our man Anakin look a little… evil? I think he might be hatching some kind of scheme for the Jedi afterlife. “As soon as Luke turns his back I’m gonna beat the crap out of Yoda and Obi-Wan and then go looking for Qui-Gon, I never did get a chance to kill that guy.” That’s what Ani’s thinking, I’m sure of it. And speaking of the Jedi afterlife, do you get to be any age you want now? How come Yoda doesn’t trim a couple centuries off? Surely Obi-Wan would rather spend eternity as Ewan rather than Alec.

Netflix was good enough to send the latest revision of Return of the Jedi the day it was released. I’m really not sure why I rented it. Probably for the same unknowable reason I’ll go to see Episode 3 next year. Sigh.
