This summer, there are massive turtles that are agile, and fight evil in the movie theaters. There is a movie about transforming robots in the midst of battle. There are humans,that are mutants, that fight a war throughout time. There is a plan for aliens to combine their efforts and defend a galaxy with skill, aggression and weapons. There is even a movie about a man who has to learn a lesson over, and over, to stop an alien threat.
Nevertheless, I still want to see a light saber battle this summer.
In the end, it is this clear clash between good and evil that will suppress my appetite. However, it is not just a basic evil, at first. The individuals who play the evil are delivered through trickery, fate and deliberate feeling. The good is not just some ultimate good, initially. Those who choose to be good take a higher path, stray from an evil path or simply play a part until fate tells them the next step.
It plays out as two forces, on two different paths, that clash because universal law tells them. In the initial Star Wars films, I almost feel like this battle has never played out in strong enough detail. I recall a character Obi Wan Kenobi, willfully placed himself before a character, Darth Vader. They had a history. Darth Vader had been on the path of good but lost his way. Obi Wan was a Jedi Master coming into his own.
They would clash, one final time. Obi Wan Kenobi sacrificed himself for the greater good.He fought Vader but played a part to an end. I sometimes wish, not to play out so much like Dragonball Z, the more mature, good and evil Jedi would emit great forces, and their great imprints, in a battle, on film, in order to clash in a great powerful, but vivid battle. This would be their final days, and final battles, in defense of their specific path.
It comes out in the games, like Knights of the Old Republic. I just think I want to see a great light saber battle in the cinema. It is not harmless, either. While the prequels choreographed some great fights, I want to see a different kind of battle. It is not on a great video on Youtube. It is in a galaxy far, far way. It is two characters, that know their paths but do not necessarily know their fates. It is no misunderstanding.
It is an initial action that becomes pure aggression. it is a choice to fight, and lock yourself to, an enemy in close quarters no matter how dirty it gets. It is a battle that permits each character to pulse with their specific energy. It is a fight that continues as a fire, in a clash of red and blue blades. It is a brawl that permits the use of moves like the force push and sinister electric pulses to trick the enemy. The battle shows the searing of flesh, that starts to spell the end of one body or another. It is a battle that goes on just long enough.
I imagine that is the battle between two Master Jedi, at opposite ends of the force. It is not however in the movie theaters. It has not been in the theaters. This will not change until the summer of 2016. A new Star Wars is coming. In the Fall 2014, possibly in close connection with the new movies, Disney will show Star Wars Rebels. This animated show will be the next closest thing to the Star Wars movies and could contain the very light saber battle I long for.
