23 Reasons Why 'Revenge of the Sith' is the Best Star Wars Movie

He did it all for her.

Alright so listen- there is no room for hate towards any of the other Star Wars movies. Because the original trilogy is legendary. And you have to appreciate the background information presented in the Phantom Menace because it's crafted so carefully. And honestly, the final battle scene in Attack of the Clones is so FANTASTIC that I had a poster of it in my bedroom growing up. Also can we take a second to talk about the new ones? Because Rogue One, The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi LITERALLY kept me on the edge of my seat.

But my all time favorite Star Wars movie will always be Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. And here's why:

1. The inner conflict is unreal from the very beginning.

Admit it- everyone wanted Count Dooku to die. But it's not the Jedi way and Anakin knew he shouldn't. He did it anyway. UGH.

2. The risky side comments.

The humor in this movie gets me every time because they could literally die at any moment and they don't even care.

3. Obi Wan doing his thing.

His character either brings comic relief or total domination to every situation. There is no in between.

4. The tragic love story between Anakin and Padmé.

Forbidden love. Pregnant with twins. I just love them together.

5. He did it all for her.

Anakin's nightmares that foreshadow Padmé's death really were too much to bear after the loss of his mother, so can we really blame him for wanting to protect the love of his life? But like she says, "he's going down a path she can't follow", and this will ultimately be the end of them.

6. This terrible, manipulative, awful Sith Lord who I hate (if you can't tell).

I blame the Chancellor for everything. Literally all his fault.

7. Mace Fricken Windu.

A badass Jedi with a badass purple light saber. He didn't deserve to DIE.

8. When the master and padawan actually work together.

They were such a good team. Dynamic duo right there.

9. Yoda.

Don't underestimate him.

10. I mean, he's just the best.

A little green fireball of fury and force. (P.S. this is one of my dad's favorite scenes).

11. And he knows everything.


12. Having a sidekick like R2D2.

The most faithful droid anyone could ask for.

13. Also how cool is this guy?

Don't even know what this thing is called but it gets Obi Wan to where he needs to be so it's AWESOME.

14. The point of no return.

We all know it's over when we see this look in his eyes.

15. When Padmé tries to reach him one last time.

It's too late. He's already turned to the dark side. But I love her for trying.

16. You know your heart drops after the execution of Order 66.

Whose great idea was it to order the Clone Troopers to turn against their Jedi leaders? OH I KNOW, CHANCELLOR-I-HATE-YOU-PALPATINE.

17. The moment right before it all goes to hell.

You all know what's coming.

18. Absolutely heartbreaking chaos.

This. Whole. Entire. Scene. Oh. My. God.

19. The betrayal, the dark side, the end of an era.

My heart really goes out to Obi Wan. He truly saw the rise and fall of Anakin Skywalker.

20. Padmé cares about him until the very end.

Even after he practically chokes her to death (which I hate him for doing but it's all so conflicting since he did all of this FOR HER).

21. And the only thing worse than losing her forever...

Her pregnancy, her broken heart, her tragic death. Still not over it.

22. Is watching him lose her forever.


23. Even though Anakin was gone the second Darth Vader was born, I'll always remember him just like this.

Shoutout to my dad for introducing me to one of my favorite movie series of all time. Between the insane graphics, the badass characters, the awesome plot, and the forbidden love story, Revenge of the Sith will always be the best.

My AP Environmental Science Class' Cookie Mining Experiment Shows Why Capitalism Is Destroying The Planet

Who cares about the environment with profits this high?


With the AP exams in May approaching quickly, my AP Environmental Science class has wasted no time in jumping right into labs. To demonstrate the damage to the environment done by strip mining, we were instructed to remove the chocolate chips from cookies.

The experiment in itself was rather simple. We profited from fully or partially extracted chips ($8 for a full piece and $4 for a partial) and lost from buying tools, using time and area and incurring fines.

This might seem simplistic, but it showcased the nature of disastrous fossil fuel companies.

We were fined a $1 per minute we spent mining. It cost $4 per tool we bought (either tweezers or paper clips) and 50 cents for every square centimeter of cookie we mined.

Despite the seemingly overbearing charges compared to the sole way to profit, it was actually really easy to profit.

If we found even a partial chocolate chip per minute, that's $3 profit or utilization elsewhere. Tools were an investment that could be made up each with a partial chip, and clearly we were able to find much, much more than just one partial chip per tool.

Perhaps the most disproportionally easiest thing to get around were the fines. We were liable to be fined for habitat destruction, dangerous mining conditions with faulty tools, clutter, mess and noise level. No one in the class got fined for noise level nor faulty tools, but we got hit with habitat destruction and clutter, both of which added up to a mere $6.

We managed to avoid higher fines by deceiving our teacher by pushing together the broken cookie landscapes and swiping away the majority of our mess before being examined for fining purposes. This was amidst all of our cookies being broken into at least three portions.

After finding many, many chips, despite the costs of mining, we profited over $100. We earned a Franklin for destroying our sugary environment.

We weren't even the worst group.

It was kind of funny the situations other groups simulated to their cookies. We were meant to represent strip mining, but one group decided to represent mountaintop removal. Mountaintop removal is where companies go to extract resources from the tops of mountains via explosions to literally blow the tops off. This group did this by literally pulverizing their cookies to bits and pieces with their fists.

They incurred the maximum fine of $45. They didn't profit $100, however.

They profited over $500 dollars.

In the context of our environmental science class, these situations were anywhere from funny to satisfying. In the context of the real world, however, the consequences are devastating our environment.

Without even mentioning the current trajectory we're on approaching a near irreversible global temperature increase even if we took drastic measures this moment, mining and fracking is literally destroying ecosystems.

We think of earthquakes as creating mass amounts of sudden movement and unholy deep trenches as they fracture our crust. With dangerous mining habits, we do this ourselves.

Bigger companies not even related to mining end up destroying the planet and even hundreds of thousands of lives. ExxonMobil, BP? Still thriving in business after serial oil spills over the course of their operation. Purdue Pharma, the company who has misled the medical community for decades about the effects of OxyContin and its potential for abuse, is still running and ruining multitudes more lives every single day.

Did these companies receive fines? Yes.

But their business model is too profitable to make the fines have just about any effect upon their operation.

In our cookie mining simulation, we found that completely obliterating the landscape was much more profitable than being careful and walking on eggshells around the laws. Large, too-big-to-fail companies have held the future of our planet in their greedy paws and have likewise pulverized our environment, soon enough to be unable to return from.
