Star Wars 30 Day Challenge: Day 25
25. Character you’d switch places with for a day
Padme Amidala. I’ve always thought that she is such an awesome role model. She reminds me of a tough Disney princess - although she has a tragic ending instead of a happily ever after. She’s much like me in that she rarely lets her emotions get the better of her and is a bit closed up unless she’s with someone she really trusts. Usually a male character has such traits, so it is nice to see a woman with the traits. Not all women are moody and cry several times a week, as many movies would lead you to believe.
I just love her. I love that she never lost her faith in the goodness of others. Being a politician no doubt let her see the ugly side of life, but she never let it bring down her optimism for a better future. She was great at seeing the good in everyone. She had to watch her husband become a man she no longer knew, yet still her last words were “There’s good in him. I know there is, still.”
She’s just all around an awesome person. I’d love to be in her shoes for a day. She has an interesting job, has a beautiful apartment, and lives on an amazing planet (
and she’s married to Anakin, for God’s sake).
Star Wars 30 Day Challenge: Day 24
24. A character you didn’t like in the series.
Generally I love, like, or am neutral about the characters in Star Wars. The films have such a great variety of characters. In most films (especially the ones I love), there’s always that one character that I can’t stand. Like, they really, really bother me, and they aren’t supposed to. It’s usually a female character, but that is, of course, absolutely not the case in Star Wars, whose two female leads are absolutely amazing.
I really had to think hard about this, but there is a character in Star Wars that I can’t stand that really shouldn’t bother me so much: Mace Windu. I’m sorry, but he’s an arrogant jerk. The things he says always lead me to believe that he thinks he is better than everyone else.

21. Favorite Scene(s) in The Empire Strikes Back
This movie just has it all doesn’t it? Romance, action, suspense, awesome locations. I’ll try to narrow it down. :)
"I’d just as soon kiss a wookie." | “I can arrange that.”
"You stuck up, half witted, scruffy looking… nerfherder!" |"Who’s scruffy lookin’?"
"Stop that. My hands are dirty." | “My hands are dirty too, what are you afraid of?”
"No time to discuss this in a committee." | “I am not a committee!”
and, though not witty, absolutely wonderful:
"I love you." | "I know."

Star Wars 30 Day Challenge: Day 19
19. Favorite scene(s) in Revenge of the Sith.
Okay, this question kind of overwhelms me, because this my favorite film in the entire series. I love it more and more every time I see it. I feel like I could never properly explain all of my feelings about the epicness of this movie. So, I’m going to try to the best of my ability to pick out my favorite scenes, but at the end of the day, I just think this movie is pretty close to perfect. It tied everything up so fantastically. Most of all, it was just so damn emotional, which I think was an excellent way to finish up the story. It’s tragic, but beautiful. There are a lot of ways that Anakin could’ve become Vader. It didn’t have to be so incredibly sad. He could’ve been a downright hatable character had the story gone a little differently, but I absolutely love the way it all played out. The man did horrible things, yes, but film makes you question how far you would go if you thought you could save a loved one from death. Even though Episode VI ends on a happy note, Anakin’s story is a tragedy in every way. ROTS captured that so well.
I’m going to put my favorite scenes in another post so that this one isn’t absurdly long.

Leia: Stop that.

Han: My hands are dirty too, what are you afraid of?
Han: You’re trembling.
Leia: I’m not trembling.
Han: You like me because I’m a scoundrel. There aren’t enough scoundrels in your life.

Leia: No you’re not. You’re…
