Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005)
The Scene: When Anakin and Obi-Wan are fighting and talking about good and evil on the lava river (the sheer heat of which would have cooked them alive) and Anakin screeches, “From my point of view the Jedi are evil!”
Why I Hate This Scene: It is the absolute worst line of dialogue ever written and acted in cinematic history and makes me wince when I hear him say it. I’ve never seen such a hamfisted way to explain the actions of a character whose actions do not need further explanation. Unborn fetuses know that Darth Vader doesn’t trust the Jedi. We really didn’t need a pause in the movie’s biggest action scene to ram this down our throats one more time. And Hayden Christensen is just horrific. With as many awful parts as there are in the prequel trilogy, this is definitely the worst one, in my opinion. Thankfully, there’s really no need to ever watch any Star Wars prequel picture again.
