Desperation is not a sexy personality trait. Unless the person begging is tied up, and in your sex dungeon.

Whatever. His role in the prequels was boring and pointless.

Just like everything else in those abominations.

I agree with this. But it wasn't Sam's fault. I think we know who to blame...

Dunno, I liked SLJ in the prequel movies. He was a pleasant change and, frankly, exactly what I always pictured a badass Jedi to be.

I also liked that he didn't (as he put it) "get taken out like a biatch". Lightsaber'd, electrocuted, AND thrown off a skyscraper. If he comes back as a ghost, he's going to be emitting smoke the whole time.

One armed? No.
Hologram? Jedi records were also ruthlessly destroyed. Unlikely.
Ghost? He's been dead for too long for that.

That would be cool, next to McGregor he was the best actor/character in the flick. I would love to see more of Mace, after all he only lost a hand and fell, that seems to be a common SW injury that everyone lives through.

Samurai Jackson was definitely one of the few high points of the prequels. And doesn't his character have book-canon with time travel involved in it? Besides, he'd be less annoying as a Force Ghost than the other Force Ghosts we've seen.

Anyway, I've heard worse ideas associated with the franchise. Obviously.

Why would he be one armed? I didn't see him getting it chopped off before falling from the Emperor's suite.

He was boring as hell in the prequels.

Well, pretty much everything in the prequels was boring, except the dramatic entrance of Darth Maul. But that also turned out to be a disappointing fight scene.

Sure, why not. Give him a robot arm with lightsabers for fingers while you're at it. Maybe a wise-cracking CGI sidekick too.

Remember, SLJ is a MAJOR comic/Star Wars fan. He was pushing to be in the prequels from day one. I think it's more of this than him just wanting another paycheck.

How would that even work? Even if he hadn't been trololololPOWER'd out of a winder, wouldn't he be getting a bit up in years by the time the second death star was destroyed?

Say what you will, but that final fight scene between him, Ras al Ghul, and Phillip Morris was pretty sweet.

SLJ was awful in the star wars movies. I mean porn level acting bad.

I realize that it wasn't his fault really, that Lucas is just a horrible director, but jeez man. One would think that SLJ could have surpassed Lucas' direction. Liam Neeson turned in a good performance for god's sake.

So he's playing his grandson, who was born on some backwater Outer Rim Territories world managed to escape the Jedi purging of Palpatine, and has an excellent Midichlorian count.

Or he can be the next black Han Solo-esque character. S'all good.

All this talk about EP 7. I'd rather Disney start over by re-editing EP 5 and completely re-doing the rest. 7 can wait until 5 and 6 are fixed, and 1, 2 and 3 are completely redone. I'm in my 40s. I have time for them to get it right.

SLJ has been a huge SW geek for decades. The prequels sucking wasn't his fault. He just wants to be in Star Wars. I can't freaking blame him and the fact is, SLJ is one of the nicest motherfarkers on the planet. If he wants to be in it, I say let him.

RandomAxe: And doesn't his character have book-canon with time travel involved in it?

In the last decades of the Galactic Republic, the Temple of Tet-Ami on Benja-Rihn was the subject of much speculation. Built some four thousand years earlier, the temple commemorated a great hero called Tet-Ami, the Time Guardian, who saved the armies of the capital city Carthas from a plague of insect-like beasts in an epic battle. The temple contained a statue of Tet-Ami, holding an artifact called the "Orb of Passage" which was said to control the flow of time. Sometime after the temple's construction, the orb was secretly taken by the Jedi Order, and the temple was lost. Just as the rediscovered temple was about to be excavated by an archaeological dig, the Jedi High Council sent Mace Windu to secretly enter the temple. His mission was to place the orb into the outstretched hand of the statue of Tet-Ami before the archaeologists arrived. Windu had no trouble entering the cave without being seen, and easily fought off a few ancient battle droids who guarded the temple's inner sanctum. He was surprised, however, to find that Tet-Ami's statue resembled him.[5]
Even more surprising was what happened when Windu placed the orb in the statue's hand. Windu was sent backwards in time, appearing on a battlefield just as the Carthasian armies were about to be attacked. Windu joined the fight, and turned the tide of battle. After spending four days in the past, he returned to his own time period, arriving just as the archaeologists entered the temple. When he returned to Coruscant, Yoda revealed to Windu that the Jedi Council had long known the secrets of Tet-Ami, and were simply waiting for the orb's energies to recharge, and for a Jedi Knight named Mace Windu to join the order, take the Orb of Passage back to Carthas, and win the battle. Thus, the time paradox was neatly resolved.[5]

Portman wins as the worst performance by a supposedly decent actor, particularly during the "romance" plotline.

Jackson did fine if coming off as a bit too angry for a Jedi Master.

His dialog delivery was absolutely wooden. As far as Portman, yeah she was just dreadful. Once again, not really her fault, but there it is.

You can't act hard enough to fix that dialogue. George Lucas pretty much ruined Hayden Christiansen's career. He's not a bad actor, who could say that crap convincingly?

The "romance" was Anakin using the force on her (Subconsciously maybe). I think she was trying to portray the Stepfordization, and it worked.
