I never thought about it, but he really had no reason to get so close, the dude's a distance fighter, at least in that instance where there's a shitton of dudes with laser swords slinging them around and shit
I watched it for the first time last week.
He's actually blasting away from the stands and he decides that Mace is important enough to jump into the stadium?
Damn it, that's lazy writing
Man I felt so fucking bad for Portman in these movies. She got stuck with maybe the worst dialogue of the PT and that's fucking saying something, she became a punchline until Black Swan came out.
If Obi Wan would have listened here, or at least considered it for more than a second, the entire rest of the series never would have happened, or would at least be drastically changed
I know that wouldn't really be possible, given this is a prequel and such, but it is still interesting to me that, had Obi done something with this information, he could have changed the course of the universe
True, it's similar to what I assume Vader was doing in ROTJ, and somewhat in ESB if I remember correctly, only I feel like Dooku might have been more genuine in the whole "let's kill the Sith" thing here, as he always seemed less like a straight up evil dude than say, Sheev or Maul
Agreed, although I felt it was meant to be ambiguous, given how Dooku seems to maybe take a bit too much delight in saying that Obi-Wan's screwed once he got rejected.
Yeah, I mean he had a nice design and all, but I wasn't shaken up when they replaced his voice with Jango's actor a few years back
It's like the only thing of note he does in the movies outside dying.
And in any case, Obi should have been the one to do it in the first place, poetry and whatnot when Boba comes into conflict with Luke's gang
It's apparently been repacked a few times, starting with a Clone Wars figure of all things
Everyone in this comic has screwed up faces.
I say tracing from computer models.
I don't know why Americans get so buttblasted over Anakin flipping out and killing a bunch of sand people when you lot flipped out and killed a bunch of unrelated sand people after 9/11.
You didn't even say sorry!
why is Jango still sticking around? The way he stands there makes it look as if he was Dooku's Second-in-Command or something. He's a bounty hunter, why should he give a crap about the republic or the seperartists? Take the money and run.
I will make a contempt Anakin version out of this one eventually, but if anyone wants to beat me to it, I'll be passive aggressive about it.
To be fair, Sheev was going to do that regardless of whether or not Dooku was plotting against him, especially since Sith are actually expected to do so.
If anything, he'd probably be disappointed if Dooku wasn't secretly planning to kill him.
It's also a common enough trope of crime/detective fiction that I'm surprised that anon had never seen it before. The detective subplot Obi-Wan goes on even follows the old setup of each discovery leading to a bigger one until he learns this one crime is all part of something much bigger.
According to Lucas this is exactly what Dooku was going for. His proposal to join him and kill Sidious together was completely genuine, the part Dooku left out was that he was also a Sith and would've tried to manipulated Obi-Wan into voluntarily becoming one as well.
It was kind of a longshot since the two had never met before and their only link was their mutual admiration of Qui-Gon, but Dooku realized that if he couldn't even use that to get Obi-Wan to listen then it wasn't going to work and just abandoned the idea altogether.
They've been questioning a lot of things but haven't had the time to dig through. In the last season they discover Dooku was behind the clone army all along, but they also realize that they're too far into the shit to do anything about it. They decide they have no choice but to keep playing along until they can figure out what the endgame is.
Yoda has another journey where he sees vision that imply pretty heavily that they're not going to win the war, but doesn't get much context. He'll still fight and hope everything turns out okay but he understands that it's probably not going to so he has to put some focus on Plan B- learning how to become a ghost so he can pass on his teachings even after death.
