I for one thoroughly enjoyed TPM. more so after reading cloak of deception (the prequel to TPM). Those droids were so cool! I love those battle STAPs. oh, and anakin didn't annoy me much as a character either, as i find ALL kids that young annoying. I never saw any movie with him in it b4 tpm.
After watching jingle all the way though, it did seem a little weird...
Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.
