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

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.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

Online classes and virtual reality in general have been the staple of 2020. One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation. So, it's been a roller-coaster experience, and definitely not what we expected.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.


Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
