He was tired of being labeled a sell-out, now he's just solidified what a true whore he is.
Honestly, I'm not sure money is a huge motivating factor for him. He's been called a lot of things, but a sell-out greedy money grabber doesn't fit for me. I mean, look how much he controlled the prequels...this is his baby. If money is all he wanted, then that's what he'd receive.

And $4B for the SW franchise? That's a steal, IMO.

so, your issue is less with the fact that he didn't die (which, is what you said your post) but more with his ability to solve dynamic newtonian physics problems?

also, anakin didn't land on his feet.

I gotta go with cheezy here. Yeah, I know they are Jedi and can do incredible things, but they are approaching Avengers superhero can't die can do anything the mind can dream up crap.

And Luke was caught in a tube to be gently slowed by it's increasing angle of deflection. Kind of like riding one of the tubes at the water park, but he only had his jedi clothing to protect himself from the friction burns. (And maybe that tube of KY in his pocket.)

i agree it's ridiculous, but i don't think it's THAT MUCH more ridiculous that things that happened in OG

It is Star Wars science fiction. Some would argue that ANYTHING should go.

I submit merely that the 5 story jump, along with several other examples that I would remember if the movies hadn't sucked SO horribly that I could hardly see through my own puke.

I liken it to the Stallone movie, "Ice Climber" or whatever the hell that movie was called.

I couldn't get past the long fall where he saved himself by jamming his pickaxe thing into the wall of frozen snow and ice.

BS!!

Yeah, I know we were talking about a fictional galaxy a long ways away, but there is still a point at which you go, "give me a freaking break".

Really, all I ask for is a hot chick like Natalie Portman to be in it. Honestly, she's the main reason I didn't give up entirely on the prequels. And it was probably her worst performance ever. I'm including "Your Highness" in that list.

BS!!
EXACTLY!!

With me it is almost always physics.

Plot makes little sense? meh, I can still watch.

Untrained civilian makes 5 out of 5 amazing headshots from a speeding pick up truck off road?

BS!! (the walking dead season 2 finale....still epic)

DAMMIT!

My Satellite receiver crapped out and I lost that episode! Now you've spoiled it before I had a chance to Netflix it!

Now I know why you have such a bad reputation.

Know what would have been cool? (But too scary for kids) is after Anakin gets all f**ked up, have a long scene where he slowly becomes evil-incarnate Darth Vader, complete with the Emperor hovering and whispering in his ear an getting into his head like Brando in Apocalypse Now. As the pieces of the Vader suit (in rough, just-put-it-together form) are applied piece by piece over days/weeks, Anakin slowly goes mad and becomes Vader. He conveys it all with his eyes.

Ah, screw it. Let's just say that the Emperor had the Vader suit fully fitted and ready to go and we'll slap the damn thing on in a quick scene. *dusts off hands* Done!

And, by the way, when Vader gets off the table, he had the friggin' cape on. What? In the middle of trying to save his life by implanting all sorts of electronic/robotic/cyborg parts, someone said "Wait! Lift him up so we can put this cape under him. That way, we won't have to put it on AFTER he stands up!"
