I think our lives are about to be destroyed anyway. I truly, deeply love you, and before we die I want you to know.
my grandma is 3 years older than my grandpa, and she got pregnant with their first kid when she was 18. this was in the 60’s too.
See, we need to show that this is a regular occurrence. I think people are so used to seeing older guys with younger women. It’s frustrating when people erase/switch the age difference.
(I mean, if we;re doing a full on role switch/reversal that’s one thing. But keeping everything the same except making it so that Padme is younger for the sake of her being younger…it bugs me.)
The movie fail to show how strong he is. he did, in AotC, manage to track Jengo from Coruscant to the “lost” planet Kamino and then to Geonosis. But, the movie are lacking with showing how strong he is.
…so, tracking equals strength?
I’ve read the novelizations and several of the prequel trilogy era EU books/comics, and even those fail to convince me he’s a great Jedi Master/Knight.
When your movies fail to convey a strong character’s strength, that’s a huge failing.
Like its not like they got together when he was a kid, it was when they were both consenting adults. Ugh makes me roll my eyes so hard…
EXACTLY. There was nothing inappropriate. She totally thought of him as a kid until she saw him years later when he was a cute, grown, young man. I think people don’t know what to do with her being a) older b) knowing him when he was a kid, and c) being older even though it’s a dark ship, like the dark ships always have older guys DUH. RME.
and the one scene of subtly and compelling acting from Hayden and Natalie.
when they’re staring into the distance at each other(’s buildings)
and not saying a thing
oh there we go, single tear, aw yeah, this scene is complete
my mom is five years older than my dad and it’s such a non issue like literally no one cares
exactly I really hate when people make a big deal of it or switch it. ughhhh.
why and how is Obi-Wan a Jedi Master? like…he got a lucky strike against Maul, fails at everything else, and only beats Grievous by cheating with a gun.
no strike that - how is he still alive?
oh, right, Anakin. and guns.
kind of makes him beating Anakin a little harder to swallow.
I find it personally insulting since my mom is 6 years older than my dad….like heaven forbid a pairing where *gasp* the woman is older than the MAN?? What is this world coming too??
I know, right? I remember everyone freaking out when TPM came out, even my mom was like ‘she knew him when he was a kid’ like yeah so what? this from the woman who read and enjoyed a book about immortal beings one of which wound up with a woman he knew from basically the time she was born. I love my mom but sometimes…*shakes head*
