The concept of midichlorians isnt so bad. In fact, it explains why some of the most iconic star wars character ended up dying. Obi Wan, Qui-Gon, arguably some of the wisest of Star Wars series ended up dying despite their wisdom and connection to the force. If midichlorians didnt exist, and ones powers in the force were only weighed on their wisdom and spiritual connection to the force... well the sith would never win.
It's not the concept that i hold issue with, i don't mind the premise actually, just the way Lucas has anakin ask about it and Qui Gon's explanation, to me is more of a MacGuffin than a real part of the lore. Obi Wan's explanation in ANH is far more powerful and encapsulating..
"the Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together"
Also, as I said, my pet peeve is plot holes. In Episode 3, why does Yoda run away? He doesnt necessarily lose the battle. He isnt seriously injured or anything. If I had been Yoda, Id have fought with Sideous to the death. The only thing that could explain his actions is if he somehow foresaw that he would one day train luke and that fighting sideous would only lead to his death.
For this reason alone, is why i am a fan of the new Star Trek movie. They created a story where they did not have to work in the confines of previous canon. Alot of people hate it for the same reason, but being able to tell your story without having it have to fit circumstances previously covered, makes for a far more rich tale..IMHO.
Again, here George fails...
They make me want to kill puppies, they're not sacrilegious like his god forsaken character edit for Han Solo in the first movie, but they're in no way equals to their predecessors, let alone the superior products they should have been with decades of CGI advancement to work from.
Even Lucas himself has acknowledged his error with Han and Greedo (see the bonus features of the horrible latest Indiana Jomes movie),but i guess it's hard to criticze something that made you (still making) billions of dollars...
Perhaps they would feel better watching Twilight or something.
I think id rather watch 2 hours of Jar Jar fondling Anakin than be subjected to that vomit inducing drivel...
