Just realized (warning, star wars nerdiness ahead)

Posted by Engineer Alexandra Humva , Sep 11 2012 · 137 views

So you know that scene from Star Wars Episode III, where Obi-Wan kills General Grievous with a below average blaster? It's hilarious in hindsight because, here's this guy who's suppose to of killed at least four Jedi, and he goes down to a simple drone blaster?

Then you think back to Episode IV, during Han Solo's minirant about how hokey religions and ancient weapons don't mean anything when you have a good blaster at your side. Besides the fact that this was a subpar blaster, holds pretty true, don'tcha think?

Sadly I don't think that was Lucas' intent though.

I guess Grievous was only good at sword fighting, not blocking fast-as-light projectiles. *shrug*

Didn't Grievous get shot on an armorless spot? Sorry if I'm wrong but it's been a while since I last watched Star Wars. =P

If I recall correctly, I think that the Animated Shorts gave Grevious better justice than the movie.

That was definitely intended, with Obi-Wan's line "So uncivilized" after killing Grievous being a call forward to his line about how a lightsaber is "Not as clumsy or random as a blaster. An elegant weapon for a more civilized age," which preceded Han's line.

It's also fridge brilliance that Grievous dies to a blaster, as he was trained by Dooku, who I don't think specialized in the form of combat specializing in deflecting blaster shots.

This comment is even nerdier than your entry. XD

Guns, as a rule, are better then swords. If the baby-abducting Jedi didn't have the force to hide behind the battles would have gone very differently.

:kaukau: It was intended. I believe I heard George Lucas even comment on the intentional irony, since Obi-Wan had said to Luke...Wait a minute, I just looked up and realized that Ballom already said everything for me.

This is not the comment you are looking for. Move along.

WARNING:
 
The following blog contains excessive rambling on the world and extremely poor paragraphing. If you are easily offended or turned off by these two things, leaving now would be a good idea.
 
This blog is written by Alex Humva, penname of some random teenager named Alex Censored. He writes stories, writes rants, writes screenplays, plays games, makes games, has a terrible work ethic, and is generally sarcastic. He believes in a Judao-Christian god, but most other people who do too give him a glare because of his weird beliefs, possibly because he's somehow bi at the same time. He's an utter equalist who feels that any discrimination amongst humans for things they were born with is wrong. He doesn't care about xenos though, let them all burn.
 
He's also an aspiring engineer who hopes to get a scholarship at his local big engineering college and one day help humanity. More likely he'll be a pencil pusher in a basement somewhere, but he's a bloody minded optimist.
 
Because of his peculiar personality and beliefs, he gets into fights often, though they usually end when he wakes up the next morning and doesn't feel motivated anymore.
