Oh I get it.

He meant morally.
>>
>>64569958
Actually he just means he has the physical high ground and is more elevated in that situation. Youe'r giving Lucas more credit than he deserves.
>>
>>64570005
He very likely means both at the same time, like pottery
But the fact that Lucas actually made him have a higher ground makes it ridiculous
>>
>>64569958
he means drugs
>>
>>64569958
OMG. Papa Lucas knew what he was doing all along! So deep.
>>
>>64569958
Yes, I'm still surprised most people didn't get it
>>
>>64573437
It doesn't make any sense either way. Why would Obi-Wan having the moral high ground mean the fight is over?
>>
>>64569958
Okay, seriously, this has always bothered me:
>"Only a Sith deals in absolutes..."

...is this line SUPPOSED to be ironic? Like, is the point that Obi Wan is so deluded he doesn't realize he's dealing an absolute right then? Or is Lucas just a retard?

I feel like it's so stupid it has to be intentional...

It's a reference to George W bush senpai
>>
>>64573545
because good always triumphs over evil :^)
>>
>>64573677
I think it has to be unintentional. That line was 3 movies deep into George's madness. Nobody had been correcting him and everybody was a yes-man by that point. Someone might have pointed it out and got canned that day, then nobody said anything. Keep in mind that line is just before Anakin for ??? reason decides to jump a fancy jump over Obi Wan despite Obi Wan just warning him it was stupid. He shouldn't have said anything about his high ground. The script is shit.
>>
>>64573545
Because even if he dies he already won
joining the dark side is for losers
>>
>>64573677
It is intentional. I forgot exactly what but its something along the lines of the jedi being hypocrites. I didn't watch the prequels though

No he didn't. He held out his arms and looked at the area around him. He clearly meant that in a physical sense, but now that you've said that Lucas will totally take credit for it.
>>
>>64573545
It mirrors The Vader v Obi Wan fight in ANH

EP V WHEN
>>
>>64570133
Nah, not really ridiculous. Just try to feel like you're in Kenobi's situation. He's more or less making a "joke" and that he physically has the high ground is what gave him the idea. Otherwise he would not have said that. He stll means both, though.

Prequels > OT > 7, btw.

So is everyone in the universe a sith?

So.. the original Anakin?

A refurbished Star Wars is on somewhere or everywhere. I have no intention of revisiting any galaxy. I shrivel inside each time it is mentioned. Twenty years ago, when the film was first shown, it had a freshness, also a sense of moral good and fun. Then I began to be uneasy at the influence it might be having. The bad penny first dropped in San Francisco when a sweet-faced boy of twelve told me proudly that he had seen Star Wars over a hundred times. His elegant mother nodded with approval. Looking into the boy’s eyes I thought I detected little star-shells of madness beginning to form and I guessed that one day they would explode.

“I would love you to do something for me,” I said.

“Anything! Anything!” the boy said rapturously.

“You won’t like what I’m going to ask you to do,” I said.

“Anything, sir, anything!”

“Well,” I said, “do you think you could promise never to see Star Wars again?”

He burst into tears. His mother drew himself up to an immense height. “What a dreadful thing to say to a child!” she barked, and dragged the poor kid away. Maybe she was right but I just hope the lad, now in his thirties, is not living in a fantasy world of secondhand, childish banalities.

The movies never mention a "spectrum". You're either on the light or dark side of the force.
>>
>>64574120
Wow. Ok you assholes have to admir this is excellent use of framing, symbolism, and color in a single shot.

Hate the prequels if you like, but you can't blame lucas for them
>>
>>64574255
Lucas knows how to frame a shot. He's just a bad writer. This is among his greatest work of poetry.
>>
>>64574244
"sides" imply there is a middle ground.
>>
>>64574341
no middle ground
only high ground
>>
>>64574255
It really just is excellent.

Once two great freinds, standing so near but forever sperated.

The force of good shrouded in white light, while anakin is in the shadows.

Anakin, once the student, blaced slightly above his teacher, dark irony and reflective of his arrogance.

Lucas was pretty brillant

I've always wanted an sword fighting expert to clarify is "high ground advantage" is even a thing. It is generally in war but I don't know about sword fighting.

According to the Myth Busters, it doesn't help at all in a one on one sword fight. In fact, it hurts because it makes it awkward to defend your shins and ankles from your opponent who is in easy stabbing range of them.

Actually the final scene in Revenge of the Sith is a good representation of the force. I made a pic, haha :^)

Notice how putting a cliff between two people makes it so there is no "middle ground", just like the force dichotomy.

Lucas is actually a genius and we didn't know it.
>>
>>64574490
Unless you are over 37, you are a millennial

Obi Wan was starting to get tired and knew if he kept on fighting, Anakin would Dooku since he's younger and has more stamina.
So he decided to play a game, a ruse if you will. He knew Anakin would do something stupid because he always does when challenged.
He knew Anakin would open himself up, giving ample time to dick him.
>>
>>64574583
Get this low ground out of here!
>>
>>64574664
Yes that's what I thought.

In a war with guns/archers/shields it's completely different, but just swords.

The only way that scene makes sense is if obi wan meant high ground as in strategically better position, since anakin had to jump and land on obi wans ledge while defending himself.
>>
Why did Lucas decide to make the Jedi iredeemable assholes in the prequels? Or was it unintentional?
>>
>>64574664
>>64574803
Having the high ground helps in a gunfight through.

Having an elevated position always helps, it's like being taller than your opponent.
>>
>>64574859
Don't bother anon, they'll never learn
>>
>>64574844
thats the point. to show why Anakin turned away from them. It wouldn't make sense that "from his point of view the jedi are evil" if they never did anything wrong.
>>
>>64574859

Strategy for fighting with projectiles is a bit different than when you fight with blades. There is no "spray and pray" setting on a sword.
>>
>I have the hi round
What did he mean by these???
>>
>>64574490
The fuck is NeoGAF? I'm pointing out your shit taste because you grew up with the prequels. They're garbage in every aspect except special effects and story.
Any different opinion is edgy and contrarian or a delusional neckbeard.
>>64574590
Nigger about 70% of /tv/ does. Were you not here the opening week?
The only people that talk about it now are the winers that make 5+ threads a day bitching about it.
>>
>>64574844
They were always kind of assholes even in the OT.
Vader - asshole
Obi Wan - asshole
Yoda - asshole

Luke was the only one who wasn't and that was either because he was naive or had a heart of gold.

They also didn't make him a master, which ended up biting them in the ass when Anakin was torn over whether or not to kill the younglings. By then, all it took was one calling him master by mistake to do the unthinkable.

Even if you dismiss the novelization, it's pretty clear in the scene that being called master was what set him off.

And all this time people were calling him a mindless mass murderer like there was no reason behind it.

A SHIT LORD??

>>64574664
I haven't been in highlander but depending on the high ground most of the time even with a sword it should be a great benefit. You will naturally have much greater power behind your swings while the person who is lower will not be able to utilize nearly as much power. Pretty great advantage.
>>
>>64575377
How much benefit does that give when lightsabers don't care how much force you put into the swing?
>>
>>64575628
You can kick some dirt into their face
>>
>>64575628
I would still say high ground because by being higher they naturally have more possibilities for a swing, allowing them to better utilize their dexterity against an opponent that is lower. The opponent that is lower is limited in what they can do by comparison.
