Can we talk about Count Dooku for a few? I don’t think I’ve ever written about how I feel regarding his character. Do any of you actually like him? I’ve always been an anti-Count Dooku girl as I find him so boring. I was so annoyed that he was still alive at the end of AOTC and we had to see him in the next movie. I loved Darth Maul because he was scary, intense, and an amazing duelist. I was disappointed he did not live longer. With Dooku, I saw that George was going for a sophisticated ex-Jedi, but my main problem is that I never felt fear when seeing him on screen. Even when he shot lightening at Yoda, it didn’t feel genuinely scary. Does that mean antagonists in Star Wars always have to look frightful? Maybe. Maybe that’s what I have gotten used to. Hey – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. If it’s working, why change it?
But if anyone out there genuinely likes Count Dooku and is a fan, please let me know. I’m curious as to what draws you to him and what is appealing.
Up much too early
So many hours at work
