  1. Great analysis of Padme and Anakin’s relationship. And I also think that some couples’ therapy might have helped their rocky relationship. First crush? Hmm…I think it was the time I admired an older man, tall dark and handsome, with a great sense of humor and a sword and a mask. His name was Alejandro aka the new Zorro from “The Mask of Zorro”. Or it could have been Antonio Banderas that I was pining for…^^

      Oooh, Antonio Banderas! *heart eyes* It’s been yeaaars since I last saw that movie. I might have to change that. Thank you so much for the comment regarding Padmé and Anakin’s relationship!

      • Anakin and Padme’s theme “Across the Stars” is so sweet yet beautiful, keeps trying to foreshadow their ill-fated romance. “Clone Wars” did a good job showing them in tender loving moments in some scenarios and others falling apart. I know these episodes showed Anakin at his worst but I think there were outside factors contributing to their tragedy. Because they were trying to carry out their “day jobs” while hiding their relationship from everyone, I don’t think Anakin and Padme were able to be fully honest to each other. Nor were they able to ask an outsider for help as a mediary.

        “Mask of Zorro” is worth re-watching. And that sword fight between Zorro and Elena? Amazing! I’ve watched a lot of action scenes with women but the way Catherine Zeta Jones wields a sword is something impressive I still remember. She doesn’t jab and thrust randomly; she fights as though the sword is an extension of herself and she moves with grace.
