The Emperor's Throne Room - Return of the Jedi [1080p HD]

  • Published on Mar 26, 2015
  • Marvelously dark, the stage is set for the final showdown in Star Wars in the Emperor's throne room. Everything built up to this in the film and the tension in the air is amazing. Wonderfully atmospheric, The Emperor knows how to talk down to this young whippersnapper.

    Well, three of the most powerful beings in the galaxy "a long time ago" in the same room! An VADER is the least powerful!! The circle is becoming complete. Sidious wanted Luke or Vader to take one or the other out.An Vader needed Luke to take out Sidious,Luke was turning Vader back to the light to take down Sidious.

    What makes the original Star Wars Trilogy truly great is that they manage to strike a great balance between a sense of real people interacting and campy melodrama, and it's often on the strength of some of the performances.

    Since Emperor Palpatine will be returning in The Rise Of Skywalker, I imagine we'll get a scene like this. (Only with Kylo Ren and Rey in Luke and Vader's positions, depending on the context). Look forward to Ian's final performance as Palpatine come December this year.

  • Oludotun John Showemimo

    Never underestimate Sidious. The fact that he took off Luke's handcuffs with just a flick of his finger shows how powerful he was with the dark side of the force.
    Not to mention a master of manipulation and very clever. The fact he was able to convincley seduce Vader/Anakin to the dark side of the force with deceitful promises to save his wife is a good example of that.
    Anakin easily believed Sidious deceitful promises.
    Sidious sensed the anger within Luke and was tempting him to give in and strike, therefore completing his transfer to the dark side of the force as his new servant and Vader's replacement.
    He also has a sick and twisted sense of humor and enjoys causing pain for his sadistic pleasure.
    Vader was the used tool Sidious no longer wanted as the injuries Vader sustained at Mustafar, severely cut down his Force potential and Luke was younger and had tremendous Force potential, hence Sidious wanted him to replace Vader.

    Luke's confrontation with the emperor had been cautiously prepared since Empire Strikes Back. This scene is one of the highlights from this trilogy. I can't think of any dramatic line of that quality in the trilogy by Disney. Even the prequels by Lucas came up with a comparable line (the confrontation between Obi-Wan and Anakin).

    Palpatine is one of my favourite Star Wars characters by far. His appearence,his decades of manipulation of The Republic and fullfilling a Sith plan created 1000 years ago and being the first Sith to sucsessfully destroy The Republic and destroy most of The Jedi leaving only a handful of survivors.

    Democrats have historically always been the most racist.
    They change their mannerisms and accent around minorities.
    They created and endorsed the KKK.
    They've owned the vast majority of slaves during slavery.
    If any blacks want reparations go knocking on the nearest Democrats door.

  • Cali the Calico

    This scene contradicts the idea that both Sith and Jedi regularly fight with light sabers. It seems only Dark Vader used a light saber because he was formerly a Jedi implying that most Sith or people who turn to the dark side are probably not Jedi since Jedi's are naturally adept at resisting the dark side of the force.

  • Cali the Calico
    Cali the Calico 2 months ago +1

    This is probably one of my favorite scenes from Star Wars.

    Something that I think is often overlooked in the original Star Wars trilogy is that the movies imply that only Jedi's used light sabers and that Darth Vader used one because he just happened to be a former Jedi. Given that Jedi are highly trained against the dark side, most people corrupted by the dark side throughout Star Wars history were probably rarely if ever Jedi. Anakin joining the Dark Side was probably an incredibly rare and shocking incident that nobody in the Jedi Order expected. The Jedi being as powerful as they were most likely used light sabers because it was a show of restraint as blasters and other weapons could be far more destructive and were easier to use. I imagine most of the time they were peace keepers and if they did use their light sabers it was after all other options were exhausted. As a group they were probably so self aware of their power that restraint was the only way of keeping themselves in check.

    Furthermore I think it is interesting that the Emperor's plan is for Luke to strike him down believing that his death would bring him into the dark side. Luke's killed plenty of people in the series but why does it matter that it's the Emperor? Maybe because the Emperor is the physical manifestation of the dark side which is a corrupting force that grows more powerful through emotions like hate and anger. Killing the Emperor would only cause the Dark Side to latch onto Luke transforming him.

    The shitty prequels were the first to show that Jedi routinely fought light saber wielding Sith and the extended universe book series and videogames followed it too. Ironically it's by far the less interesting option. After the liberal train wreck of Force Awakens the only way I can imagine kind of fixing the series is to bring back the dark side as a kind of physical manifestation of evil that feeds off of anger, hatred, and fear explained in the originals. Perhaps its aim is the spread of chaos and destruction and is diametrically opposed to the light side which seeks peace and harmony in the world.

    In the Force Awakens, JJ Abrams had a number of items that had ties to Skywalker lineage. When Rey wields Luke's lightsaber for the first time she sees glimpses of the Empire and of Luke's hand. Kilo Ren has Darth Vader's mask enshrined and has manufactured his own. And then the second movie happens but the writers were too focused on pushing a liberal agenda that they just made a piece of shit movie that abandoned Luke's legacy for a narrative that says that everyone can be Jedi. While it is very unlikely I can think of one way to kind of fix the next movie but it would involve the writers leaving their marxist ideology at the front door and actually trying to write a decent story without an agenda.

    Perhaps what corrupted Kilo Ren was Darth Vader's mask. It would explain why Kilo Ren turned to the darkside without any kind of plausible explanation. It was the symbol of Anakin's dark side. He went full dark side once he became Vader and is brought back to the light when he sheds at the end of Return of the Jedi. Perhaps Kilo idolizes it and the corruption of the Dark Side takes hold. Perhaps the reason Rey is good with the force is because Luke has force projected into her giving her his experience. Perhaps the quest in the new movie is to confront the source of the dark side which now resides within the ruined remains of the death star which we see at the end of the trailer.
