Star Wars is screwing with my emotional welfare.

First, I must say bravo to Georgie Lucas and his brilliant mind. But I have a few complaints.

B and I have been watching Star Wars this week-- more so, re-watching because it has been so long since I've seen the series and I want to watch them fully as an adult in sequential order so that I understand them to their fullest.

I completely had no idea what I was getting myself into.

I mainly have serious issues with Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. There is such a lack of character developement in this movie that I was left screaming at my TV in rage because none of it made logical or emotional sense. Anakin made such a quick transition to the "dark side," leaving behind all of his previous emotions. Shit don't hap'n like dat. There is an order and a process of how people grieve and lose their mind.

His decision to serve the Chancellor Palpatine is made on a whim. The Chancellor humored his pathetic whining for a short period of time, and then all of the sudden Ani is buddy-buddy with him? The only developement there between Palpatine and Anakin was when Palp convinced Ani to kill Count Dooku. It wasn't the "Jedi Way" but since when the hell did Ani care, anyhow? He said the same thing to Mace Wandu when he was battling Palpatine, but then shortly thereafter made his pledge to the dark side of the force which went against his lifelong mentor, Obi-Wan, and the love of his life and mother of his children, Padme. They used Anakin killing the Younglings (Can't lie, cried at this part) as one of the quickest ways to show how evil he had become. YET AGAIN, not enough development.

I'd go into more detail, but at this point i've cried too many tears over this movie and now I feel resentment.
Anyway, Epsd III definitely should have been split into two movies so that they could fully develop the characters, making it not-so-shitty. I am still a fan, but I can't wait to watch 4-6 so that these works of genius (maybe not-so-genius) can redeem themselves. I remember 4-6 being much more awesome, anyway.

I am leaving you with a joke I just made up because i'm oh-so funny.
Before Obi-Wan was a Jedi Master, he was just a Pad-Ewan...

GET IT?!?!?!?
