As usual, I have to preface this post: I am not a Star Wars fan. BUT, it was playing at the drive-in movies tonight, so we loaded up the van for 6 of us to see a new release for $10. Can't beat it.
And I LOVE this movie. Loved it, loved it, will absolutely buy it. Anakin is beyond a tragic hero. He's moved by a pure love, a love so complete and unmoving. He'd do anything to save her, including betraying himself. And when he finds out she dies, it's absolutely heart-wrenching. The decisions he makes is to save her, and in the end, it did him not an ounce of good. He is the definition of a tragic hero and my heart completely broke for him.
