Notes

Film

  • Starts with Count Dooku generously offering to let the Jedi surrender, and with Yoda ordering a perimeter around the survivors to be created, it ends.

Podcast

  • Christopher Lee is criminally underused in this film, given his acting skills, and how interesting the character is.
  • Pete has a hard time distinguishing between Eeth Koth and Agen Kolar, but succeeds thanks to their slightly different lightsabers.
  • Legend has it that Irek Ismaren was the Boba Fett of the Jedi.
  • It's the attack of the clones!
  • The gunships are the closest we will ever come to Pete's dream of a gun shooting lightsabers.
  • This may be one of the best minutes of the movie.
  • It is odd that Jedi wear their "bathrobes" even in battle, except for the questionably dressed Aayla Secura.

Meta Minute

  • 44:33 podcast episode length.

Quotes

  • Pete: It's like renting a car. Yoda is going through all the screens, being like "No, need that, I do not...".
  • Alex: The gunships are "Low-Altitude Assault Transports" also known as LAATs, or Laaaaats. David: Oh, I think they're called Imperial Walkers.
