📽️ Watched Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.
Unlike everyone else, this is my least favorite of the prequels. There’s a lot of beautiful digital scenery, but the story drags. More than once I looked at the amount of time left and thought, “Wait, really? How is there so much still to come?” As someone who’s in these mostly for Padmé, this film is a real bummer: we watch someone who used to be a badass diplomat and steady hand with a blaster wander around her apartment pregnant and worrying. I’ve been pregnant and I can tell you, it is possible to do things besides wait for your partner to come home. Not your fault, Padmé, I know. You’re imaginary and George Lucas (and lots of other people) don’t know how pregnant bodies work.

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.
We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
