TPM Star Words Wrap Up

The last part of Matril’s take on different lines from TPM has been posted:

There was a lot of foreshadowing about Anakin discussed in the last entry, but we also have a tremendous hint regarding the identity of Sidious, right before the film’s final scene. It casts an ominous shadow over all of the gleeful celebration that follows.

Yoda and Mace discuss the fallen Darth Maul (did they learn his name from the Viceroy or not? No one mentions him by name again, so who knows?) and acknowledge that the Sith truly have returned. And they know there’s another one out there, because “Always two there are. No more. No less. A master…and an apprentice.” This is a great line on its own. It explains the Sith rule of two succinctly and simply. We understand that the two must be constantly at odds, each secretly planning on replacing the other while knowing the other plans to replace them. Vader’s power play with the Emperor and Luke makes more sense than ever.

But Mace’s reply…this line gives me goosebumps.

Next up, AOTC.

    I just love her series on the different quotes. She is so insightful when she delves into the deeper meaning behind some seemingly innocuous lines. I love when folks try to get into the mind of uncle George, and I am so happy you bring them to our attention LP. The only problem is that I am constantly embarrassed at my own obtuseness for not noticing these things.
