So apparently Natalie Portman hasn’t shown her 5-year old son the Star Wars prequels yet because she dies at the end. Spoilers? I totally forgot that even happened. I actually really enjoyed Revenge of the Sith and I still tried to cancel that part of the movie from my brain. Everything moments before Obi-Wan vs. Anakin need not be recalled.
I thought she was going to say that she didn’t show her son Star Wars because Hayden Christensen is a creep. Or because Jar Jar Binks has more lines than Obi-Wan Kenobi. Or because George Lucas writes dialogue like he’s a toddler playing with action figures. Or because it’s a political drama that no 5-year old kid can sit through without napping.
Or because Anakin built C3PO. Or because Anakin hates sand. Or because Darth Maul is a completely wasted character. Or because NO ONE realized that Chancellor Papaltine was a Sith Lord. Or because the prequels were bad.
Mother of the year.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Natalie Portman should refuse to show the prequels to everyone in her life. Also, go ahead and give Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here.
