Last week on KENOBI...
and even more Vader.
And now, the finale...
I told my roommate/friend to wake me up at 5:00am so we can watch this before we go to appointments and also to avoid spoilers, lol!
Hyped as hell right now!!!
After 2005's awesome Mustafar duel in ROTS, we arrive at what Ewan McGregor coined "The rematch of the century".
Here are my Top 5 favorite Star Wars duels:
1. Luke Skywalker, Jedi Padawan vs Darth Vader, Sith Lord in TESB
"The Force is with you, young Skywalker. But you are not a Jedi yet."
Kirshner killed it. It's shot beautifully. It's scored perfectly. It's emotional and yet showcases Luke's abilities and repairs Vader's awful ANH moves by making him fast and fluid with his sabre.
2. Qui-Gon Jinn, Jedi Master & Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jedi Padawan vs Darth Maul, Sith Lord in TPM
"We'll handle this."
It was the Jedi at their prime. It was the Sith reborn. The fighting is spectacular. The score is marvelous. It raised the stakes for dueling amongst Force users. Glorious from start to finish.
3. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jedi Master vs Darth Vader, Sith Lord in ROTS
"If you're not with me, then you're my enemy."
"Only a Sith deals in absolutes."
Its brutal. It's fast. It's thrilling. The score is glorious. It's what we'd wondered about for decades. The death of a friendship. Two brothers who shouldn't be trying to kill each other REALLY try to for 20 minutes. Heartbreaking. Amazing.
4. Darth Sidious, Sith Master vs Mace Windu, Jedi Master, Kit Fisto, Jedi Master, Saesae Tiin, Jedi Master & Agen Kolar, Jedi Master in ROTS
"I am The Senate."
My opening night theater went NUTS 17 years ago when Palpatine uttered those words. I'll never forget how when he Force called his sabre from his sleeve people were screaming. Little did Windu and the other Jedi know what was coming. It's brutal. It's the end of Palpatine's nice guy act where we finally meet what's underneath the "mask" and the beginning of the Republic's fall.
5. Yoda, Jedi Master and Leader of the Order vs Darth Sidious, Sith Master in ROTS
Like #4, it's a fight for democracy. For the Republic. He who wins decides what's in store for the galaxy. The destruction of the Senate is frightening. The Supreme Chancellor turned out to be a Dark Wizard hellbent on oppression and fear. Yoda is the only chance at stopping him.
"At an end your rule is. And not short enough it was."
The crowd went nuts. I'll never forget the love Yoda got during that fight.
Let's see if tonight's rematch makes it into my Top 5!!!
Alright, let’s see what happens.
Reva teleported to Tatooine pretty quickly.
What this show has taught me is that Qui-Gon went out like a chump.
Aww, a little Luke and Owen moment.
It's honestly like they want people to hate her.
The little ANH Luke outfit is killing me.
So Obi is going to fight Vader, fake die, and then kill Reva? I'm in.
Aunt Beru still got it.
That holster is going to come in handy during her teenage mini-series.
OT lightsabers are the best lightsabers.
“I’m not afraid.”
You will be.
This anti-Tusken hate... no wonder Boba's family was butchered!
Boba over here trying to bring awareness to unfair prejudice against Tusken Raiders while Uncle Owen just blames them for anything.
Hilarious. The Destroyer looks awesome, while the CGI rebel ships look like they are from Lost In Space.
Am I the only one still trying to figure out how Reva's lightsaber works? Because how it was handle last week, made zero sense. It was even magically put back together
So... just random planet. Sure, why not.
Hey, I remember those lines!
Owen and Beru getting some good shots in.
Enjoying the duel, but these lightsaber blades. Ugh. Also, how were they randomly so close all of sudden?
He finally has the high ground.
This duel is a bit more hilarious then badass so far.
I could get use to more force abilities during duels!!!
Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru, making Ben look like a neglectful godparent.
That shot of Leia smiling at Obi-Wan, made it look like she was hitting on him.
Kenobi used rock throw. It’s super-effective.
