I included this video because the lightsaber duel is WELL CHOREOGRAPHED! But EMPTY. I've seen this TYPE of thing before. Where someone attempts TO BE PASSIONATE AND CREATE AN EMOTIONAL ATMOSPHERE, be it staged like this scene or in real life where the person thinks they're fooling me as they lie to my face and try to invoke emotion/s from me where their own attempts are...?
HOLLOW. And Empty. It is borderline...? FAKE. But I can't quite call it that so that is why I typed that it is HOLLOW-n-EMPTY.
I've been working since 5:30am EST and once again I stayed up late last night so I went to bed at 1am EST. My DRIVE TO WRITE AND CREATE IS STARTING TO FINALLY PUSH ME and these INTERRUPTIONS of going in to the day-job are honestly starting to agitate me.
I'm gonna spend the day finishing the Shippen Joe drawing. But I need to KEEP WRITING. The Star Wars Prequels have always had a profound affect & effect on me. Because they had POTENTIAL. But it showed that when George Lucas finished Return of the Jedi, he was actually right to have stopped. He knew by the time it was over that he'd created something SO HUGE AND MASSIVE from a creative standpoint.
That he had no place left to go EXCEPT FOR DOWN. Thus the attempt to create the Prequels, which HAD GREAT CONCEPTS AND POTENTIAL. Were all left beautifully hollow....
