Revenge of the Sith is on TV for like the billionth time and while watching that scene where Obi Wan and Anakin crash land the giant ship on Coruscant something occurred to me: the ship breaks in half on entry over a planet that is essentially one giant super-city. So while our gleeful Jedi wrench the front half to a grinding halt on a runway, the back half, a massive chunk of metal the size of the Titanic, falls to the surface of a heavily populated area and somehow doesn't create a mile wide crater, wiping out thousands of people, disrupting the economy and the very government that oversees hundreds of planets?

Clearly it doesn't because the politicians are lauding the cocky Jedi, going about their usual business and attending wacky Cirque Du Space Operas.

Whuuut?

I just saw an article from The Province from 2005 (buried in the living room). It says that you like "The Shadow" first issue. Is that the very first issue from DC by Mike Kaluta?

That was the pre-Vertigo crime series by Andy Helfer and Bill Sienkiewicz. Super dark and super violent. Loved that series.

Let's just pretend there were no episodes I-III. The world would be a happier, better place.

They'll flip it as a Jedi terrorist act, once the Empire is declared.

I think anyone expecting realism from a star wars movie is probably barking up the wrong movie tree.
