Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith

This week we finally complete Anomaly’s series on the first six Star Wars films. WOO-HOO! We feel accomplished now. :)

Even with its flaws, Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith is the best of the prequel trilogy. There are reasons why we don’t hate the prequels and we chat about that this episode. We also talk about the strengths and weaknesses of Episode 3, pose “what if” questions, offer our theories and suggest an order for watching the films.

We’re getting closer to the release of The Force Awakens—the next time you hear from us on Anomaly, we’ll be reviewing the new film! Can you believe it’s finally December?! Are you looking forward to it?

Be sure to check out the links we referenced in our episode; you’ll find at the bottom of our show notes. Please give us your thoughts. You can comment below, email us or call our voice mail line at 432-363-4742 with your feedback. Thanks for listening to our review of Star Wars Episode 3!

Theories Discussed
The Rule of Two
Padme’s cause of death (it wasn’t a broken heart or Force Choke)
Palpatine’s staff was made up of Sith acolytes & cultists
Jar Jar a Sith Lord?
“I know there’s still good in him”— Is it possible Luke is imprinted with this belief at his birth?

Questions Asked About Star Wars Episode 3
Why are the Jedi jerks?
Why is Padme a shrinking violet now?
What if Padme survived and became a rebel?
Is Anakin psychologically disturbed or did he just need a good family counselor?
When was Anakin actually seduced by the Darkside?

The Machete Order (a sequence with which to watch the Star War Saga)
Angela’s sister, an individual who hasn’t watched Star Wars, is interested in seeing all the films before viewing Episode VII. Angela outlines the order in which she will introduce the movies to her sister. She calls it “The Modified Machete Order”. Find a link we referenced below.
