Because George Lucas does not or did not have enough of a connection left within HIM to ACCURATELY AND CORRECTLY DEPICT WHAT LIFE WOULD HAVE HONESTLY BEEN LIKE FOR ANAKIN SKYWALKER AS A SLAVE.
I have typed about this before, but I will retype it again.
There are certain things that White-creators CANNOT CORRECTLY DEPICT UNLESS THEY THEMSELVES HONESTLY HAVE LIVED IT AND/OR EXPERIENCED IT!
When You CREATE SOMETHING that is actually OUTSIDE OF YOUR EXPERIENCE, especially when it is TOO FAR outside of Your Experience.
It is REFLECTED IN THE END RESULT AND FINISHED PRODUCT OF WHAT YOU'VE CREATED, especially when talking about the literal CREATION OF A CHARACTER who has to come from a place that NOBODY WILLINGLY EVER WANTS TO GO OR BE AT OR BE IN.
Is one of, if not, THEE TOP of the List of Things You DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO COME FROM OR GO THROUGH.
Anakin's horribly written character.
Was because Lucas Himself, much like His HORRIBLE ATTEMPT to create political-drama and then MAKE IT NOT ONLY BE INTERESTING BUT ALSO MAKE SENSE.
Lucas went into TWO COMPLETELY FOREIGN AREAS FOR HIM, which resulted in the Prequels being a failure from a WRITING STAND POINT.
But also why The Character of Anakin Skywalker came across more as a whiny uncontrollable BRAT-BASTARD!
Instead of a man who knew all-too-well what it was like TO BE SOMEONE'S PROPERTY AND HAVE NO SAY OVER THEIR LIFE NOR THE LIVES OF ANYONE THEY LOVED AND CARED ABOUT.
Lucas was also trying TOO HARD not to make these movies "dark", when He knew He was sitting down to finally put out THE ORIGIN-STORY OF DARTH VADER.
Last time I checked Darth Vader wasn't all warm and cuddly!
So whomever He was PRIOR to what We knew, He had to have had SOME SERIOUS SHIT GO WRONG FOR HIM TO TURN INTO DARTH VADER.
Lucas ATTEMPTED TO BYPASS THIS FACT, which only FURTHER FUCKED EVERYTHING UP. Either You're in for a Penny and Down for a Pound, OR YOU FOLD AND BACK THE FUCK AWAY FROM THEM FUCKIN TABLE!
There is a reason why, regardless of whatever anybody says or THINKS about Rogue One.
There is a REASON WHY EVERYBODY SAYS "OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT DARTH VADER SCENE AT THE END WAS WORTH THE WHOLE FUCKIN MOVIE!"
The Biggest Reason why EVERYBODY said this was because of the HORRIBLE DEPICTION of Anakin Skywalker in the Prequels. I may do a more in-depth post on How Anakin SHOULD HAVE BEEN.
I have enough on My Plate as it is.
But it is because of what I am typing about with My Own Characters that made Me think of this tonight and actually type it up and post it.....
One more thing of note.
One more noteworthy mention.
Is when Rian Johnson wrote out the Last Jedi, the above scene is of course from Revenge of the Sith and it is literally the last moments of Anakin Skywalker. Where Useless-Horrible Teacher Obi-Wan ultimately takes Anakin's ORIGINAL lightsaber and leaves.
That at NO POINT does Obi-Wan attempt to convince Anakin to TURN BACK if He wants to save or be with Padme. And while I am all-too-aware of the stupidity that Lucas DECIDED TO USE, in creating the Customs-n-Culture of the Jedi regarding attachments and such. It is WITHIN THIS STUPIDITY that it honestly shows HOW EASILY ANY AND ALL OF THEM CAN BE DUPED AND DECEIVED.
Because the Reality was and still is, The Jedi's Customs-n-Culture actually REMOVES THEIR HUMANITY. And when You REMOVE Your Humanity, then how can You actually have ANY MORALITY.
Again, I stated above and will state again, Lucas was OUT OF HIS ELEMENT. He was trying to write about things that He honestly DIDN'T THINK THROUGH or simply thought nobody is really going to SEE HOW FLIMSY AND CONVOLUTED THIS ALL IS. And Yes I typed it was FLIMSY AND STILL CONVOLUTED. As I typed above, Lucas showed Us the Jedi's Way of Life and it was clearly devoid of Humanity. Which by DEFAULT, NEGATIVELY IMPACTS ONE'S MORALITY.
Obi-Wan rails about democracy and the Republic, but YOU DO REALIZE WHO HE IS TALKING TO, right?
A Former-slave of the Outer Rim.
We can PRETEND LIKE Lucas MEANT TO DO THAT, or?
We can BE HONEST.
Because We saw Him after SELLING EVERYTHING TO DISNEY, what did He say and then LATER RETRACT?
Sooooooooooooooooooooooooh, the Star Wars movies were "His Kids", and Yet, as Charlie Rose said "YOU SOLD THEM!"
So We can DROP THE PRETENSE AND CUT THE BULLSHIT AND ADMIT THE FACT that Lucas is just as TONE-DEAF as what He wrote in the Prequels. And what He had Obi-Wan saying before and AFTER His Duel with Anakin.
Smug-Stupidity IS NOT COOL.
It's right alongside Stubborn-Stupidity.
Nobody wins when someone has EITHER of these NEGATIVE-TRAITS.
Surely You didn't think I'd forgotten about what I was typing a few paragraph's up regarding Rian Johnson and the Last Jedi. A shit-fest of all shit-fest that actually makes the Prequels more bearable, which really means He fucked up.
Lemme tie this back to where I started, which is in regards to Anakin.
When Anakin is defeated and Obi-Wan takes His Lightsaber.
That Lightsaber has all kinds of MASSIVE SIGNIFICANCE IN SO MANY WAYS, yet once again, another LIMITED NON-CREATIVE IDIOT gets to take a run at something that He should NOT HAVE.
I won't even bother with Jar Jar Abrams no-talent len's-flaring fucked up ass. Because all He does is OVERHYPE AND OVER MYSTIFY WHATEVER HE'S WORKING ON AND THEN BAIL WITHOUT WARNING SO SOME SLOPPY-SECONDS DUDE CAN TRY TO MAKE SENSE OF HIS MESS!
For starters, hit a MASSIVE SNAG, thanks to Jar Jar Abrams.
In A New Hope 2.0, poorly titled the Force Awakens, where no actual Force was Awakened. Just lazy, shitty, crappy, safe-attempts to RETELL the Original Star Wars and introduce a bunch of lackluster losers all the way around. And yes, this is how I REALLY FEEL.
Anakin's Lightsaber is found by some new useless character where of course it was lost BY LUKE on Cloud City at the same time HE LOST HIS FUCKIN HAND!
At no point in the Original Trilogy did Anakin's Lightsaber TRIGGER ANY REACTIONS OF ANY KIND FOR OR TO LUKE NOR OBI-WAN. And this is CRITICALLY IMPORTANT, because of course, OBI-WAN WAS BUSY LYING TO LUKE about what happened to His Father. At no point does Luke have a Force-sensitive FLASHBACK!
And sees OBI-WAN CUT UP A MAN WHO LOOKS AN AWFUL LOT LIKE HE COULD BE LUKE'S BIOLOGICAL FATHER!!!!!!
That shit would have been AWKWARD AS FUCK IN THE OG-STAR WARS "Yes, this is Your Father's Lightsaber. I'm sure He'd want You to have it Luke."
Meanwhile the Lightsaber, WHICH IS TAINTED BY THE DARK SIDE is like "FINALLY I'MA GET YOUR FUCKIN ASS YOU OLD LYING-ASS LIAR!!!!!" and then the MOMENT LUKE TOUCHES IT HE SEES WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED TO HIS FATHER!!!!!
How in THEE FUCK!?
Does Obi-Wan GET OUT OF THAT SHIT!?!?!?
More importantly, if Anakin's Lightsaber CAUSES A REACTION TO ANYONE FORCE SENSITIVE, well...!?
Doesn't that just turn Anakin's Lightsaber INTO THIS;
And NOTE, the Rendition done above by the Late Christopher Lee.
Puts the pathetic RIP-OFF ATTEMPT by Jar Jar Abrams to TURN Anakin's Lightsaber into something akin to the One Ring. The Rendition by Lee PUTS ABRAMS AND RIAN JOHNSON TO SHAME!
Worse than this is the Fact that indeed that IS WHAT ABRAMS DID.
By having Anakin's Lightsaber REACT OR CALL OR SHOW REY, ANY-FUCKIN-THING!?
When IT DID NOTHING in the Original Movies?
This is THE PROBLEM with having SOMEONE ELSE COMING BEHIND YOUR CREATION, YOUR WORK!!!!!
They then begin FUCKING IT UP!
WITH THEIR SHITTY-INTERPRETATIONS OF WHAT THEY NEVER CREATED!
So once Abrams has Anakin's Lightsaber REACT to Rey, Rian Johnson CANNOT HAVE LUKE BE NONCHALANT WHEN REY GIVES HIM HIS FATHER'S LIGHTSABER!
If anything, it would have been EXTREMELY POWERFUL if Luke would have REFUSED the His Father's Lightsaber and if He was HONESTLY WRITTEN TO BE HONEST ABOUT THE FACT THAT HE HAS FUCKED UP!!!!!
The Very first 5-minutes of Rian Johnson's Last Jedi COULD HAVE BEEN AN HONESTLY WRITTEN, SERIOUS PIECE OF ACTING AND DRAMA FOR BOTH ACTORS. As Luke Skywalker attempts to explain Himself and ACKNOWLEDGE that HE SHOULD NOT HAVE RUN OFF LIKE HE'S DONE, but!?
When He got HIT with that all too unmistakable aura THAT HIS FATHER HAD?
When He could see MULTIPLE VISIONS OF HOW EASILY HE COULD FUCK IT ALL UP AND FUCK UP HIS OWN NEPHEW!?
He got DRAWN INTO THE DARK SIDE.
Drew His Weapon ON A CHILD JUST LIKE HIS FUCKIN FATHER DID AND DAMN NEARED KILLED HIS OWN FUCKIN NEPHEW JUST LIKE HIS FATHER USED TO KILL CHILDREN!!!!!
Rian Johnson, like Abrams.
Is a smoke-n-mirrors movie-maker.
NOTHING THAT CHALLENGES THE AUDIENCE.
And much like when Lucas tried to write A STERILE ANAKIN AS A SLAVE.
The Duplicated Delusion by Rian to write A STERILE FAILURE IN LUKE SKYWALKER, FUCKS UP THE WHOLE FUCKIN MOVIE AND DESTROYS THE CHARACTER!
The Last Jedi, much the same way that Revenge of the Sith COULD HAVE BEEN WRITTEN.
Should have focused on the Women in those movies ATTEMPTING, in regards to Padme, to HONESTLY keep Anakin on the right path, or?
Hmphf, God forbid Lucas have been CREATIVE and written Padme as a woman who decided FUCK IT! MY MAN IS GOIN EVIL THEN I'M RIDIN WITH HIM, FUCK THE GALAXY I REGRET NOTHINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!
Muthafuckas would have been LIKE "Oh-kay, didn't see THAT SHIT COMING!"
And in regards to Rey in Last Jedi, She could have been honest about Her Own Inabilities. But She could have AND SHOULD HAVE been the one to HELP LUKE REGAIN HIS CONFIDENCE, and maybe, JUSSSSSSSSSSSSSST, maybe?
Let Him know that what REALLY HAPPENED was that HE WAS TRYING TO DO TOO MUCH ALL AT ONE TIME AND FORGOT, that His Line IS EQUALLY STRONG ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FORCE. Thus making Him SUSCEPTIBLE TO BEING TEMPTED BY THE DARK SIDE. A movie centered around Rey helping TO ANCHOR Luke while He has to DEAL WITHIN HIMSELF AND HIS SHORTCOMINGS AND HIS LINEAGE?
Where within all of this Rey LEARNS HER OWN LINEAGE, regardless of WHO Her Parents may or MAY NOT HAVE BEEN. Too many possibilities, way too many. And within THEIR JOURNEY a number of other questions could have been answered, such as whether or not Finn's disgraceful-ass is actually AT LEAST Force-sensitive.
Just kicking this shit here around IS MORE ALONG THE LINES OF A LAST JEDI-WORTHY TITLE. Where it is Luke, as the SUPPOSED, Last Jedi. Essentially passing on WHAT NOT TO DO, to Rey, where Rey in turn LEARNS ABOUT WHO AROUND HER IS ALSO FORCE-SENSITIVE. Within all of this Luke could also REVEAL who Snoke REALLY IS and the Fact that LUKE PROBABLY ACTUALLY KNEW WHO THE HELL HE WAS. Which added to why He bolted too.
Confidence is all fucked up.
Morality is in the crapper!
Then He damn near kills His Own Nephew!
Now Snoke shows up and Luke's FIRST IMPRESSION IS TO KILL HIS LOUNGE-SUIT WEARING ASS!!!!!
Stop it, lemme stop now.
All of what I JUST TYPED.
Is part of the reason why Anakin Skywalker as a character was DOA before the Prequels ever got pen put to PAPER! And it is because He had NO SUBSTANCE. He was STERILE. Even though He was coming from a background THAT WOULD NOT ALLOW FOR HIM TO BE THE TYPE OF BOY WE SAW IN THE PHANTOM MENACE.
Happy Go Lucky, WHILE BEING A FUCKIN SLAVE!?
George, STOP IT!
Fuckin stop it.
If You're NOT GOING TO GET INTO THE GUTS OF WHAT YOU CLAIM YOU'RE CREATING, then stop it. Leave it alone. Or change the character in a way that You can handle how You will have to DEPICT HIM to readers, viewers, etc, otherwise...?
You're literally doomed to Fail before You ever actually started.....
