Misread of the Moment
"In E1 the Jedi are at the height of their power spiritually. For a thousand generations and all that...
They're quite able to see the future and deal with the occassional uppity bounty hunter. The sith, however, are quite a danger to them.
By E2, the force is waning for the Jedi. They're ambushed and killed by /droids/! Granted they're droids with the psi backing of both Dooku and possibly Sideous, so that's better than your average droid by far.
And in E3 they're decapitating themselves while trying to shave. Further sign that the force is /not/ with them."
--ArmorFiend in this Slashdot discussion about the new movie. Now, when I went back to reread this I saw there was the word "practically" before "decapitating", but I think my misread was much funnier... I just have this image of a Jedi in robes in front of the mirror, face covered with lather, firing up the old light saber...
