When they told Lana at the hospital that she had lost a baby for the second time, she died a little.

And when the shock of that breathless, numb moment had passed and her tears came, it seemed as if they would never stop . . . tears for this unfulfilled promise, and for all the promises of the life that had been broken, and for all the sorrows . . . If Lana Turner had ever known happiness at its fullest, it was because she had experienced sadness many times at its depth.

On that Friday night last October when she slipped on her porch and lost her child, another misfortune was added to her lengthy list.

If there was anything that she had wanted then or now more than a baby, she couldn’t name it.

Two years ago, when she suffered her first miscarriage, the doctors had told Lana that her chances of having another child were slim, because of the RH factor. “Your blood is RH negative,” the doctors pointed out, “and Mr. Topping’s is RH positive. A child of yours might be born, but it probably wouldn’t survive.”

This RH factor, which plays a great role in Lana’s life, is a sub-type of four major blood types. Nowadays, before blood transfusions are made, the blood of the donor is matched to the blood of the patient, for if the blood doesn’t match after the second transfusion, dangerous

shock reactions result. These reactions also occur if the RH factor doesn’t match, too. Most of the people in this country are RH positive; a small percentage are RH negative, and do not contain the RH factor in their blood cells.

During her first pregnancy, Lana’s body managed to tolerate this antagonistic mixture of blood, and despite it, she gave birth to Cheryl, a healthy child. But the body can’t put up that same fight again, and future pregnancies usually result in the death of the infant before or soon after birth. Lana’s second child was lost because its red blood cells had been destroyed by antibodies produced in Lana’s blood.

There’s only one way of saving the life of such an infant

As soon as it is born, its own blood is drawn out, and transfusions of new and different blood are injected into its veins.

When Lana became pregnant for the third time last March, her obstetrician told her that this was the only way in which she might give birth to a child and assure its survival.

As part of the regimen, Lana herself would have to take three or four injections per week. “I want another baby more than anything else,” Lana said, “and I’ll do anything possible to make sure it’s healthy.”

The chances of any married couple having RH factor trouble are only one in 500. It’s Lana’s luck to be that particular longshot—but all during the six months of her last pregnancy, she never once complained.

While she was undergoing medical treatment, praying that her might be born alive so that it might be transfused with new blood, she was making Mr. Imperium, with Ezio Pinza.

Everyone was excited about the great Pinza, everyone but Lana. During the picture’s filming, many people began to think that Lana had grown jaded. She seemed to have an almost cathedral-like self-sufficiency about her. Few people knew of the heavy, hopeful secret she carried in her heart.

One afternoon, a reporter came up to her on the set. “Darling!” the reporter exclaimed. “I’ve just spoken to Pinza and he tells me that he falls in love with all his leading ladies.”

Lana merely smiled. In the old days of 1937 and ’38, she might have made a snappy retort like, “That’s nothing. I always fall in love with all my leading men.” This time she was silent.

When Pinza planted his first kiss on her, instead of complimenting the 58-year-old lover on his technique as she once surely might have, Lana didn’t say a word. When she left the set, she turned to her makeup man and said good-naturedly, “If he kisses me like that all the time, I’m going to look like a Ubangi. How about getting me some protection?”

A few minutes later, her lips were being covered by a protective padding of undetectable plastic. In the old days Lana never sought cover from the lips of any of her leading men.

All during the film’s production, she was careful, sedate, and lady-like. No temper tantrums. No scenes. No flare-ups.

When a reporter interviewed her and asked about her future plans, Lana said simply, “I’ve always loved children, and I don’t want to raise Cheryl as an only child. That’s why my husband and I are looking forward so anxiously to the birth of this child.”

“I understand,” the reporter continued, “that this is going to be your last picture. I heard on the radio the other night that the only reason you’re making this one is because you want to buy your mother an insurance annuity.”

“That’s not true at all,” Lana answered. “My mother doesn’t need an annuity, and I have no intention of retiring even after my child is born.”

But the child Lana was carrying—as we all know now—was never born. Three weeks after Mr. Imperium was finished, Lana slipped on her floor at home. Bob Topping rushed her to St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, and Lana had no chance of determining whether the child might have lived with transfusions of new blood.

She never runs away from life

Fortunately for Lana, she never gives up or gives in. She runs to meet it no matter what it has to offer.

Less than a month after her miscarriage, she attended the premiere of All About Eve. Escorted by Bob, she looked as glamorous and beautiful as ever, although inwardly she may have changed.

She’s no longer the young girl who obeys her every impulse, who lives with a feverish gaiety, who airs all her troubles, who lives her private life in public. “I’ve given up night-clubbing,” she says. “We’re furnishing our home in Holmby Hills and we may build a vacation place up in Monterey or Oregon.”

Lana will not permit her home to be photographed, and she will no longer submit to the outlandish sweater stunts which brought in her first publicity. Her “planned” romance with young leading men like Peter Lawford is a thing of the past.

She has also had her name legally changed from Julia Jean Mildred Frances Turner to plain Lana Turner, and has cloaked all her recent actions with a new dignity.

Life has always treated Lana Turner roughly. Her father, Virgil Turner, was an itinerant miner. He was working in Wallace, Idaho, population 3,634, when Lana was born. One night when Lana was ten, and the family lived in San Francisco, Virgil Turner was mugged and murdered on a side street near the bay.

Fatherless and virtually penniless, with her mother working, ten-year-old Lana knew none of the comforts or the small luxuries that young girls should know—a new dress, an ice cream soda, a birthday party were rare, fantastic pleasures.

By the time Lana was 13, her mother decided to try their luck in Los Angeles. They packed three cheap suit cases with all their worldly possessions, and borrowed a friend’s car. Five miles out of Paso Robles, it suddenly began to pour. The old car skidded, hit a soft shoulder, teetered recklessly, and then turned over.

Two ribs broken, her face cut and bleeding, Lana managed to limp away from the wreck. “So long as I live,” she once told friends, “I’ll never forget that day. I wanted to cry, but I knew that crying wouldn’t do any good, so I got up and I tried to flag some cars. Finally, a truck-driver stopped and took us into Hollywood. That’s the way I got here—and I’ll never forget it.”

There is no point in going over Lana’s entire career

What is significant, however, is the perverse and recurrently bad luck that has constantly hounded her personal life. Every time Lana made a successful picture or her contract at the studio was re-optioned, she somehow found herself involved in an unhappy love affair.

There was Greg Bautzer, the popular Hollywood lawyer, now rumored in love with Ginger Rogers. Greg got hold of Lana when she was 17, and she fell tempestuously in love with him. She even told Joan Crawford, “I hope to marry Greg.” The hope was never fulfilled. Lana ran off to Las Vegas with Artie Shaw.

This marriage is listed in the books as one of the great mis-matings of all time. “If you put sex aside,” a friend of Artie’s said, “these two had absolutely nothing in common.” Shaw is primarily an intellectual. Lana is not. She attended Hollywood High School for fifteen days—no more—before she left.

Lana’s marriage to Shaw lasted seven months. Her second marriage to Steve Crane lasted six months. She filed for an annulment but when she discovered that she was pregnant by Crane, she remarried him on the night before he left for his Army induction. “I want my baby to have a normal life,” she explained.

The normal life never materialized

Crane’s acting ambitions, it was rumored, lay behind the dissolution of marriage number two. “Acting just isn’t right for most men,” Lana said at the time.

At this point, Lana’s career began to bloom. Her love-life did not. Of Turhan Bey, who courted her violently for a time and then stopped, she had this to say: “I don’t know whether I did something or someone told him something or what. He said he would call me and he never called and I never heard from him again . . . It’s so bad for me with Cheryl growing up to have everyone think I don’t know my own mind. I knew my mind for a long time about Turhan. Because of my little girl, I don’t want it said that I turn lightly and frivolously from one man to another.”

Certainly, Lana’s love for Tyrone Power wasn’t frivolous. She endangered her career by flying to Mexico to be with him. Supposedly, this was the great love match of the century. Lana, who used to wear her heart on her sleeve, held it in outstretched hands for him. When Linda Christian married Ty, Lana was crushed.

She tried not to show it, but her friends knew the truth. This was another kick in the teeth. Then, Lana met and married Bob Topping. The Hollywood wise-guys said she was marrying on the rebound, that the marriage would never last. They’re still saying it, only they’re not so sure any more.

When Lana honeymooned in England, the press raked her over the coals because she came late to a conference. When she returned to Bob’s family home in Connecticut, the gossips said she was ill-prepared to be mistress of the tremendous Topping mansion. When she went to 21, or the Colony, or the Copacabana in New York, it was said of Bob and Lana that they were constantly quarreling, that the quarrels must end in divorce.

When Lana found herself pregnant by husband Topping the first time, she knew nothing about the RH factor. When she found out about it—it was too late. The baby had died.

When she learned about the RH factor and tried to save this last child by transfusions of whole blood—she never got the chance.

If anyone ought to be sore at life, it should be Lana Turner. It’s given her money and fame but precious little happiness. However, she refuses to look back upon the past.

“When you’re as happy as I am,” she said three weeks before she lost her baby, “you have no thoughts for the past.”

Whether that still holds true, no one can say.

A friend who has known her ever since she first arrived in Hollywood, said recently, “Lana has been smart enough never to sit down and take inventory of her life. There has been too much sadness, too many men, too much death and love, and because of love, too much pain. For Lana there is only one thing—the future. Whether it brings her another child of her own, or whether she and Bob adopt one—I am sure that she knows in her heart that the future must be better than the past.”

The Jedi Master couldn’t finish off his former padawan in the Obi-Wan Kenobi finale. You might think that it is because of their past memories and emotions but the truth is quite unexpecting.

When the fans witnessed the epic duel between Obi-Wan and Vader; they couldn’t believe what had happened. Honestly, when Vader told us that Anakin has long gone forever and when Obi-Wan finally acknowledged that; we thought he would finally finish the Sith Lord this time but this never happened.

Obi-Wan had the golden opportunity to end the long pursuit and the biggest threat to the Jedi, but he choose to let Vader live. Let’s take a look if Obi-Wan actually did make a perfect choice.

The epic duel between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi  

Obi-Wan Kenobi’s final episode features Kenobi attempting to divert Vader from the people who were on board. He then gives Haja Elstree the assignment of ensuring Lei’s safety and makes his way to battle with the Sith Lord.

Vader and Kenobi boarded the drop ship after Obi-Wan made the decision to go. And in an abandoned planet, we get to see Vader and Obi-Wan face off once more. We finally get to see the moment that everyone was desperately waiting for; the battle between the Jedi Master and the Sith Lord.

But yet again, Vader demonstrates that he is stronger than Obi-Wan. Vader overwhelms him and it almost kills him as well. He buries Kenobi beneath a group of boulders and continues to walk off.

But little does Vader know that Obi-Wan is going to appear again and overwhelm him this time.

Obi=Wan returns and this moment, he doesn’t let his guard down. He battles the SIth Lord with all his heart and Avenue manages to destroy his suit and helmet during the process. And the next thing we saw was the innocent eyes of Anakin Skywalker.

One of the most spectacular scenes in the franchise is undoubtedly the fight between Obi-Wan and Anakin. Obi-Wan sobs after Vader’s helmet is cracked open. He apologizes to Anakin after realizing the suffering he had to endure. Vader responds with a torn mask, “I am not your failure, Obi-Wan. You didn’t kill Anakin Skywalker. I did.”  

When Vader’s helmet cracks, Obi-Wan is finally able to see his former Padawan. He anticipates seeing the same charm in Vader’s eyes that he found in Anakin. Under that darkness, he hopes to re-discover his friend. Vader hatters his hopes and informs Kenobi that his friend passed away a long time ago.

Bade confirms that Anakin Skywalker we all knew was already dead. Obi-Wan then understands that Anakin Skywalker, his former Padawan, is indeed gone. He has complete control over the situation and has the ability to kill Vader immediately if he so chooses, but he decides to let him go.

After their epic battle on Mustafar, Obi-Wan thought he had already slain Anakin when he abandoned him to perish on the shores. But in that instance, Vader had once more escaped death because Obi-Wan had hesitated to deliver the fatal blow on his former Padawan.

Why Obi-Wan Didn’t Kill Darth Vader?

When we saw the real eyes of Anakin Skywalker inside of that cracked helmet, do you know what we witnessed? We saw his burned face, his facial structure was fully broken and that was the result of Dark Force,

The Dark Force had absorbed him completely and when Obi-Wan witnessed what his former padawan was going through, he stopped right on his track and started to reminisce about the past, and what he could’ve done to avoid Anakin from this suffering.

Well during their previous battle on Mustafar; Obi-Wan decided to not kill Vader because he thought there was some of Anakin Skywalker still alive, somewhere in the corner but during this duel, he accepted the truth; the young padawan that he knew is no longer behind the mask.

As Obi-Wan Kenobi faces off against Anakin Skywalker, his former student, the intensity of the situation is at an all-time high. Obi-Wan recognizes that Anakin has changed since their days as master and apprentice, but he remains resolute in his dedication to the Jedi Code

But Obi-Wan chooses to spare Anakin’s life because even though Anakin is a threat to the Jedi he can’t work beyond the Jedi codes. This decision shows how bonded Obi-Wan is still and the unbreakable connection between teacher and student, even in the darkest of times.

The guardians of the galaxy, the Jedi, have as their responsibility to preserve life rather than end it. This was the Jedi Code that was getting in the way of Obi-Wan during their showdown’s final moments.

Jedi are known as the people who fight for justice and they don’t even carry any kind of gun because they believe their force is strong than anything else, the same goes for Obi-Wan.

He couldn’t finish his former Padawan; initially, because he was a Jedi but he was his former partner as well. Many of you might think of the Jedi Code as the biggest weakness of Obi-Wan but this was his greatest achievement.

Many other members of the Jedi have set such an example by choosing not to kill them in the end but a Sith doing such a thing is a completely different story. In the final episode; Luke was cornered by Reva. She had the full opportunity to exterminate the future of Jedi but she chose not to.

She fought hard with the Dark Force and made herself out of it. She eventually managed to get away from the grasp of the Dark Force and didn’t let it absorb and control her fully.

This scene shows that humanity still remains in Sith and Obi-Wan was hoping for something like this with Anakin, which never happened. Although his expectation was shattered into pieces; he fulfilled the duty as a “True Jedi Warrior” by letting go of Darth Vader, and by choosing life over death.

Was Letting Vader Live An Important Decision?

darth vader helmet

Darth Vader will remain as the Sith Lord, an extremely powerful member of the Dark Force whose presence still remains a big threat to society. Putting all our memories and emotions aside, he is a person that needs to be killed, eventually.

Well, if we take look from a different perspective letting Vader live was the perfect decision made by Obi-Wan. This decision personally rewarded him because he was finally able to connect with the Force.

After the epic duel with Vader, Obi-Wan finally witnessed the force of his former master; Qui-Gon. The latter said; “I was always here Obi-Wan. You were just not ready to see it.” His decision proved to be right because he had finally opened up a path to be one with the Force.

His decision of letting Vade live was important for his character development. Even though Anakin had deceived him and murdered other Jedi, Obi-Wan demonstrated that he was still devoted to the Jedi principles.

If we take a look at episode 5 of Obi-Wan Kenobi we can find that Obi-Wan once had told Anakin about ‘a Jedi never kills’ and seeing how committed he has portrayed him as the true Jedi Master.

Thus, Obi-Wan made the perfect choice by letting Anakin live because he was finally able to be one with the Force (although he struggles a bit) and set a perfect example for the future of Jedi by choosing life over death.

Final Thoughts

Aghhhh!! It’s hard to believe that a masterpiece like Obi-Wan Kenobi has finally ended. Truly, the show had everything we needed. From the epic duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader to Reva fighting her own battle with the Dark Force; the show was truly mesmerizing.

When Vader’s helmet fell to pieces and when we finally saw the miserable eyes of Anakin; we couldn’t stop ourselves from sobbing like a child. If we would’ve been in the place of Darth Vader, we would have been the same.

Of course, nobody can wield their sword against a former student no matter how evil they have become. But as we’ve already discussed Obi-Wan didn’t choose to let Vader go only because he was his former padawan but because he was a true Jedi.

The episode included almost everything. The plot couldn’t have been more tragic and epic, and there was the great Star Wars conflict between the greatest characters.

Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader have the most complex relationship in the franchise. They used to have the best relationship; Obi-Wan was not only his mentor but also a father figure to Anakin, but it didn’t take time for Kenobi to become Obi-Wan’s most hated person.

After Anakin embraced the Dark Side and became Darth Vader, he started to hate Obi-Wan so much that he was ready to go to any length to exterminate him from his life. Kenobi and Anakin used to be so close, but that bond remains meaningless for Vader, all he has for Obi-Wan is hate and nothing else.

Why Does Darth Vader Hate Obi-Wan So Much?

Darth Vader himself has stated that Anakin Skywalker is dead and he has erased all the ties relayed with Anakin, but it seems he can’t cut off the beef between him and Obi-Wan, his former teacher.

Although Vader has told this multiple times; how Anakin is dead and he is now more part of it,m we are definitely not going to buy that! Deep inside our hearts, we know that some pieces of Anakin Skywalker are still hanging around him. He has vowed to the Dark Side but he can’t completely change; that’s why he still hates Obi-Wan so much.

Vader’s anger towards Keonobi is so high that he once argued with a group of Force-sensitive warriors to leave him alone so he could seek revenge on Kenobi. When the Grand Inquisitor tried to console Vader for his recent actions, he reminded him that Kenobi was not an ordinary Jedi.

Despite becoming Vader, Anakin Skywalker still exists within him. This is one of the main reasons why he hates him so much. Due to Kenobi’s influence, Vader is unable to fully eradicate his former self. Vader’s hatred towards Kenobi is not because of the physical harm that happened between their battles, but because Kenobi reminds him of who he once was.

Darth Vader wants to fully embrace the Dark Side but his former teacher keeps reminding him of his old self, Anak9in Skywalker.

Luke believed that there was still some goodness within Darth Vader, despite his mask and dark persona in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Luke hoped to bring back Vader’s humanity and convince him to disobey the orders of the Emperor and save his own son.

During that very moment, we could witness Vader’s persona, and Luke had managed to make a connection with Anakin, the person he wished to forget.

Darth Sidious, the leader of the Dark Side, also sensed that Anakin still existed within Vader, thanks to Obi-Wan Kenobi’s influence. Sidious questioned Vader about this, but Vader denied any attachment to Kenobi. However, it was obvious that, after Padme, Kenobi was someone Vader held in high regard.

Darth Vader holds a deep hatred towards Obi-Wan Kenobi because of the moments he had together when he was still Anakin Skywalker. Vader had wanted to embrace the Dark Side but he failed because of Obi-Wan.

However, Kenobi is not the only person who stopped him from embracing the Dark Side. His children; Luke and Leia play a huge role to keep Anakin alive within Vader. After learning that his children were alive, Vader could never fully embrace the darkness of Darth Vader.

Darth Sidious, the Sith Lord, also thought that Anakin was still alive inside of Vader because of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Vader was questioned by Sidious about this very topic, but he responded that Obi-Wan Kenobi was unimportant to him. But it was clear that, after what happened with Padme, he could never forget Obi-Wan.

Do you know how Obi-Wan and Anakin met and encountered each other?

Obi-Wan Kenobi came across a young boy (Anakin Skywalker) on Tatooine before the War of Naboo. Anakin was very young, but despite his youth, Master Qui-Gon Jinn had already designated Anakin as the “Chosen One.”

Kenobi couldn’t believe it when Master Qui-Gon Jinn said that; he was astounded to see such a young boy having this level of special ability. After the first encounter, Kenobi was assigned to be the mentor of Anakin Skywalker.

Obi-Wan then taught young Anakin the ways of Jedi at Qui-Gon’s request. Anakin had a strong connection with the force but he lacked the proper knowledge and ability to control the force. That’s why He needed a strong and experienced Jedi like Kenobi to guide him in mastering this incredible power.

Alongside being a mentor of Anakin, he also played the role of parent and taught the young valuable lessons of life and guided him, to control his powers. With the help of Kenobi, Anakin learned to control the force and became a person that the people could depend on.

The relationship between the teacher and padawan was really good, they had developed a deep bond with each other. With the assistance of Kenobi, Anakin finally acquired all the requirements to become a skilled Jedi warrior.

Little did he know that their happy moments together would be short-lived…

Anakin Skywalker was deceived by Palpatine, who manipulated him to believe the Jedi’s flaws and how they were trying to get rid of him. Palpatine also falsely claimed that Padme and Kenobi were having an affair, which ignited Anakin’s hatred towards Kenobi even more.

Palpatine’s manipulation ultimately led to Anakin becoming Darth Vader. He claimed to have let go of his old personality, but deep down, he was still holding on to it. During Padme’s final moments, she mentioned a name repeatedly, but it wasn’t Anakin’s. It was Kenobi’s name that she called out, Vader’s anger couldn’t have hit any worst now.

Vader was ultimately trying to believe that Padme and Obi-Wan didn’t have anything in between but after this very moment, he couldn’t turn his back on Obi-Wan.

Anakin believed that Kenobi and his wife had a romantic relationship due to this event. His hatred for Kenobi grew, and he started to take some violent choices. He started reminiscing about every moment Padme and Kenobi had spent together. His emotions were manipulated by his inner demon.

As Vader’s hatred intensified, he started to get drawn more into the Dark Side. Their great relationship never remained the same and now they view each other as their greatest enemies. But if they view each other as their greatest enemies why did Obi-Wan didn’t fight back?

Did Obi-Wan Kenobi let Darth Vader win?

In Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope, Obi-Wan Kenobi encountered Vader as he was on his way back to the Falcon after rescuing Princess Leia.

Kenobi knew he had to do something, so he sacrificed himself to save Luke and the others by distracting Vader long enough for them to escape from the Death Star. The showdown between Kenobi and Vader begins.

This was so epic because Obi-Wan said; “If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly conceive,” just before he was about to be defeated. There is a different story behind why Obi-Wan gave such a statement to Darth Vader.

Back at the time, in Revenge of the Sith, Yoda had told Kenovbi that Jedi Master Qui-Fon Jinn was finally able to communicate with them using the Force. Yoda also gave advice to Kenobi that; he would be able to learn this technique (to communicate with others with the help of Force) when he’ll be in Tatooine.

Kenobi had already acknowledged that during his ending days, he can be closer to the Force and become a strong warrior even after his death. he was confident that even if he died at that very moment he would still manage to communicate and teach Luke to become a powerful Jedi like him.

Obi-Wan Kenobi was simply not afraid of death because it was not the end of the route. He was already prepared to be one with the Force, so he decided to let Vader remain victorious.

Reasons why Darth Vader Hates Obi-Wan Kenobi

There are numerous reasons why Vader hates his former teacher so much, out of them all, let’s take a look at some of the pivotal reasons;

Darth Vader couldn’t erase his past because of Obi-Wan Kenobi

Vader wanted to embrace the Dark Side truly but he couldn’t because of Kenobi. He wanted to destroy Anakin Skywalker, his true and pure self but Obi-Wan Kenobi was in the way. And no matter what, he still remembered moments of happiness from his time as a Jedi, and he owed those memories to Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The only people Anakin ever cared about were, Padme and Obi-Wan Kenobi.  Vader tried to stay within the Dark Side but his connection with Obi-Wan was like a fishbone stuck in his throat. In his mind, getting rid of Obi-Wan was necessary, as he despised him for blocking his path to his former self.

After Padme’s death, Obi-Wan was the only person he had his memories with; because of such memories, he was still reminiscing about his past, as Anakin Skywalker.

Anakin thought Obi-Wan Kenobi was trying to take Padme away from him

As we’ve already stated multiple times, Padme was one of the most important people in Anakin’s life. In fact, he was attempting to embrace the Dark Side for her; after he started having nightmares about Padme dying.

The thought of losing Padme terrified Anakin, and he started to believe that everything was coming between him and Padme’s relationship. he was also terrified that Obi-Wan was one of those people who was trying to take Padme away from her.

His fear have Palpatine a perfect opportunity to manipulate him. The Sith Lord manipulated him and made him believe that his best friend was trying to take the person he loved the most. Anakin got devastated after hearing this news and his hate for Obi-Wan just kept growing deeper and deeper.

He believed that Obi-Wan Kenobi and Padme had an affair

Palpatine manipulated Anakin and made him believe that Obi-Wan was seen with Padme in her house alone. This statement made him more furious and he started to believe that there was something going on between them.

Anakin’s suspicions started to grow more when he learned that Obi-Wan was accompanying Padme on a mission to Naboo. He was furious and believed that Obi-Wan was trying to get closer to Padme.

After embracing the Dark Side; Vader found Padme in her final moments and as he got close, she was uttering a name, and the name was of no othe than Obi-Wan. This angered Vader even more and convinced him that Padme and Kenobi were having an affair.

The Dark Side devoured Anakin Skywalker

darth vader

Palpatine’s ultimate plan was to bring Anakin Skywalker to the Dark Force because he had recognized his capabilities as well. He manipulated him and made him believe that the Jedi community was corrupted and Anakin fell right into his deception.

Anakin was trying to give his best to the community; all he wanted was to have a family with Padme and live happily after. After hearing Palpatine’s words, he started to believe that everyone was trying to get rid of his happiness.

Little by little, he started to get consumed by the Dark Force and embraced it eventually. Even after knowing the real identity of Palpatine, he still didn’t return to the Jedi community because he was tired of everything. The Dark Side consumed him and he started to dislike every people he loved once, like Kenobi.

What can be more interesting than getting a chance to see the battle between the Jedi Master, Yoda, and the Sith Lord, Darth Vader?

Yoda, the Grand Jedi Master has a vast knowledge of the Force after studying it for thousands of years, and on the other hand, we have Darth Vader, who has a deep understanding of both the Light and Dark Sides of the Force.

The battle will be really fierce. To the eye, it looks like Vader will remain victorious because of his intimidating appearance but even though Yoda is small and old, his knowledge of Force shouldn’t be underestimated.

Did Yoda ever fight against Darth Vader?

It’s sad to say that the faces of Star Wars have never had a chance to meet with each other in the primary story. But don’t you worry, the franchise has given us some canon moments where both of these characters have had a showdown.

We know the rule of Jedi is not meant to kill others, but instead, it is meant to protect the universe. Yoda believes in this moral code. Being a wise and experienced Jedi Grandmaster he believes that defending the Jedi Order comes at a fort than having conflict.

Even before Anakin embraced the Dark Side, Yoda didn’t fight with him because he was still a member of the Jedi. Therefore, Ypoda never really had a typical reason to fight with Anakin Skywalker.

However, there could be some moments where TYoda was forced to battle with Anakin. One such opportunity arose when Anakin chose to betray the Jedi and join the Dark Side as Darth Vader.

Yoda would have been forced to defend himself and others against the dangerous Sith Lord. Let’s take a short look at that moment!

When Anakin Skywalker decided to turn into Dark Side and join forces with Palpatine, it shocked all of us but mostly Obi-Wan Kenobi. The latter wanted to seek battle against them but Yoda refused his proposal.

Yoda was aware of Palpatin’s power and he was well aware that Obi-Wan wasn’t at the same level as the Sith lord. He didn’t choose to engage in the battle because he feared that he would lose more Jedi to the Dark force.

Unfortunately, this was the final opportunity for us to see the clash between Yoda and Vader but the Jedi Master decided to avoid the battle, which was actually a great decision.

We do know that Yoda is often seen as the character of Wisdom in the franchise, he has a vast knowledge of the Force and his decision always have meaning, so was there a special reason behind why Yoda decided to avoid the fight?

Why did Yoda and Vader Never Fight in Star Wars?

It’s ironic that Vader and Yoda have never had a face shown in the franchise. Yoda tends to stay back when there’s any possibility of combat, it’s not because he’s scared but as we’ve already stated; Yoda has a deeper meaning behind such a decision.

After his battle against Darth Sidious in Revenge of the Sith, Yoda seems to have lost confidence in battles. He had to take a fat defeat during that battle and because he couldn’t remain victorious against the Sitg Lord, the whole Jedi Order had to face consequences.

The entire Jedi Order was forced to hide because of Darth Sidious. It is possible that Yoda was aware of what consequences a battle can ignite and perhaps, this experience made him hesitant to take any part in any further conflicts.

Looking at the other way, Yoda has always kept the peace as his first choice. He will take any step to bring peace to the Jedi Order and having conflict is the last option he’ll choose.

However, according to the book Star Wars: Complete Locations, Yoda has specific reasons for not battling against Darth Vader. The book explains that Yod had decided not to take part in the battle against Darth Vader because it was a part of his bigger plan.

Let’s take a look at what the book states on why Yoda hasn’t drawn his lightsaber against the most cunning antagonist of Star Wars. “Yoda has been able to devote the years of his exile to pondering ancient Jedi texts, meditating on the deepest mysteries of the Force, and using his Jedi skills to communicate with Obi-Wan Kenobi and other exiles.” 

Now, that’s a smart move, don’t you agree?

He was aware that if he engaged Darth Vader in battle, the outcome would not be favorable to him. In addition to speaking with the exiles, he was keeping a watch on Luke and Leia Skywalker. He would have lost to Vader, and the outcome would have had an impact on the Force’s equilibrium.

Yoda and Darth Vader Power Comparisons

Just because Yoda hasn’t anticipated any kind of conflict or battle doesn’t mean that he is weak or powerless. It’s the grandmaster of Jedi we’re talking about, he has a vast knowledge of Force more than anyone in the franchise, and of course, the deeper you know Force, the more powerful you become.

With such knowledge of the Force and his life experiences, Ypda surely has an upper hand in a duel against any antagonist. But when comparing who can use the lightsaber better, probably Vader has more possibility to win this battle (only by a fraction though.)

Let’s take a look at the moment when Yoda wielded his lightsaber during the battle against Count Dooku and Palpatine in combat.

Yoda defeated Count Dooku during that battle, demonstrating his superior strength to the former Jedi who had become a Sith Master. Still, no one emerged victorious because Dooku fled the scene just as Yoda was heading to save Anakin and Kenobi.

Yoda used a lightsaber for the second time against Palpatine. He demonstrated exceptional combat skills and one of the best lightsaber-handling techniques despite the fact that his weapon was knocked out during the conflict.

We don’t have doubts that Yoda is one of the best at using the lightsaber but it’s just that, the franchise hasn’t given us enough evidence of it. But Darth Vader… the beast has never failed to show its potential.

Regarding Darth Vader, the Sith Lord has never failed to deliver or display his combat potential. Back in the time, when Vader was still Anakin, he engaged in a battle with Count Dooku; he was a strong Jedi but not strong enough to defeat him.

Dooku remained victorious, in fact, Dooku easily defeated Anakin and even cut off his hand. That’s the moment when Anakin wanted his revenge against Dooku and the moment when he started to embrace the Dark Side.

Even though during his battle against Mace Windu (when he was still Anakin Skywalker), he couldn’t defeat the Jedi Master but he did manage to surprise and impress him with his potential.

After Anakin embraced the entire Dark Side, he became an unstoppable force that everyone was afraid of. He then displayed that he had embraced the Dark Side fully by murdering almost everyone in the Jedi Temple.

Talking about his power and abilities, Vader is quite skilled in using Force as well. We have seen him using his telekinetic abilities multiple times. However, the more he relies on the Force’s abilities, he has to face the worst consequences.

Meanwhile, Yoda doesn’t need any explanation to show how good he is at controlling the power of Force. He has almost spent more than a thousand years studying the Force. Yoda has mastered controlling the Force and with hundred years of experience, he can use the Force’s full potential with ease.

There was once a moment in the franchise when Yoda displayed how powerful he was with the Force by deflecting other Force attacks. Vader is a tough opponent and he sure knows a lot about the Force but he can’t compete against Yoda on this topic.

Yoda might have a vast knowledge of the Force but Vader has knowledge of both sides of the Force. We are forgetting that Darth Vader is a Sith Lord; he has a deep understanding of the dark side and using that knowledge he can almost counter Yoda.

Vader has a huge advantage and upper hand against all the Jedi opponents and because of his vast knowledge of both sides of the Force, he can even launch powerful and devastating attacks against his foes as we saw in the Revenge of the Sith. 

These two icons of Star Wars do have the full potential to battle against each other, don’t they? It’s just sad that the franchise never gives us a chance to witness their battle. If there was ever a battle between Yoda and Vader, it would be hard to pick a winner, right?

Yoda vs. Darth Vader: Who Would Win?

darth vader

The battle between these two characters is likely to ever happen in the franchise but if it ever did, it will surely break the internet. Yoda and Vader are known as the strongest Star Wars characters, so it will fascinating to see who would win.

Vader will get the chance to dominate the Jedi Grand Master for a while, he might grasp the upper hand in the battle, but against all the odds, Yoda is likely to remain victorious in every aspect.

Yoda is known for having the deepest understanding of the Force and he’s the strongest and wisest member of the Jedi Community. With his knowledge and experience alone, Yoda is way more powerful than Dark Vader.

Vader might have the knowledge and deep understanding of both sides of the Force, and he might be able to counter the Jedi Grand Master with his attacks, but they are certainly not enough to make Yoda fall to his knees.

Darth Vader might be one of the strongest villains in the franchise, but you have to remember that Yoda is the strongest character in the entire franchise. Honestly, Vader isn’t a weak opponent, Yoda is just stronger than him.

The Star Wars saga is really huge but the main storyline always focuses on a single thing; the war between the Jedi and the Sith. Both of these characters have different lightsabers and appearances. From their dark clothing and red lightsaber, the Sith can be easily distinguished.

Especially, you can also see the level of Evil in Sith with their Eyes, unlike the Jedi.

After embracing the Dark Side, we can witness the Siths slowly manifesting a Yello Eye, as we did with Anakin Skywalker. It’s not because of the dark side, but it denotes how much darkness they have embraced.

What role does the Sith play in Star Wars?

One thing that makes Star Wars truly exceptional is how they portray their characters as Jedi and Sith. The Sith are the force of Darkness, whereas the Jedi are the force of Light. They have consistently been others’ competitors.

The Sith, who are renowned for their evil and destructive deeds, are guarded by the Jedi, who serve as the galaxy’s defenders. The Sith is evil and works for the Dark Force. After devoting their entire lives to the Dark Force, they acquire unimaginable powers. They receive limitless abilities, but there is a condition.

After devoting their whole life to the Dark Force, they lost their own existence. Meaning, they can no longer feel any emotions and will be under the complete command of the Dark Force. They will follow every instruction that Dark Lord will present to them and adopt an evil persona, like their leader.

Once a member devotes his entire life to the Dark Lord, their Lightsaber will turn red, but there’s also one noticeable thing that will indicate them as the Sith; their eyes. Their eyes will turn yellow, just like Palpatine.

Why Does Sith Have Yellow Eyes? 

Sith Lord Palpatine and Anakain Skywlakers are some renowned characters who possess the Yellow Eyes. If you’re thinking that it’s just a change of color, then you are completely wrong; the colors have a deeper meaning than we have expected.

A character’s eye color begins to transform when they express their deepest thoughts and give their whole self to the Drak Force. The colors of their eyes also reveal their level of corruption and their absorption of Dark energy.

They gain limitless strength when they give their entire lives to the Dark Force, and in exchange, the Dark Force fully embraces possession of them and transforms their entire appearance.

Yep, you guessed it right, to devote their whole life means sacrificing them to the Dark Force. They lost their will to control themselves and when you see a Sith possessing yellow eyes, it describes the loss of their emotions, the loss of themselves.

Alongside Palpatine and Anakin Skywalker, we also have Maul who possesses such yellow eyes. He was the apprentice of Sith Lord, he died as a Sith while battling with Obi-Wan Kenobi, and even after his death, his eyes remained the same; Yellow.

But when we take a look at Savage Opress, he had a different situation. He initially possessed the Yello eyes after being a member of the Dark Side. We could see his yellow eyes whenever he used to be in a rage, but after the magic was outcasted; he became normal, and so did his eyes.

We do know that when a Sith’s color turns yellow it indicated the level of their corruption, but looking there were moments in the franchise when the Dark Lord himself had normal eyes. How did he manage to get rid of his initial eye color?

How Did Palpatine Hide His Sith Eyes? 


Although Palpatine was the Sith Lord, he managed to hide his Yellow Eyes and corrupted the system of Jedi within the inside. When he revealed himself as the Sith Lord, we were so bamboozled because no one expected that.

Well, in the end, Palpatine himself explained how he was able to fool the entire Jedi. It was difficult to trick the entire Jedi, especially when he had those wicked Yellow eyes. So, he put on his Chancellor mask to conceal them. The mask gave him a normal appearance while obscuring his yellow eyes.

He managed to mislead the entire galaxy; even the Siths were unaware that Palpatine and Chancellor were the same people. Palpatine managed to become a force of Light and a Force of Dark; which is one of the coolest and most badass scenes of the franchise.

Darth Sidious was hungry for more power, and his lust for power was the main reason why he chose to become a member of the Jedi. The existence of the Chancellor would’ve remained mysterious and no one would’ve been able to figure out his true self if he hadn’t revealed his true identity.

He had no intention of revealing himself as Darth Sidious in the first place. He was forced to take that step to defeat Mace Windu. Winde was really a powerhouse member of the Jedi and it would’ve cost every drop of power for Sidious to defeat him.

The more you give in to the Dark forces, the more corrupted and powerful you become. He needed to embrace the Dark Force in order to obtain the enormous power necessary and the mask of Chancellor was standing as a barrier to getting access to his full powers.

While wearing his mask, he was unable to interact with the Drak Force in-depth. He had to expose his true identity and those brilliant yellow eyes in order to get more power. He had to embrace the Dark Force in order to interact with it, and as soon as he did so, his eyes became yellow and he was showered with power.

Does Darth Vader Have Sith Yellow Eyes? 

darth vader helmet

Vader has stated multiple times that he has truly embraced the Dark Force but deep inside we still believe that somewhat of Anakin Skywalker still remains within him. And his yellow eyes are proof of that.

Darth Vader doesn’t possess the Sith Yello Eyes but There were two instances in the franchise where we could see Darth Vader’s yellow eyes. In Twilight of the Apprentice, his helmet briefly came off, revealing his yellow eyes for a split second.

The second moment was during the Star Wars: Purge. These were the two moments when Anakin showed his level of corruption for a while but during Star Wars: Purge we could witness his eyes slowly diverting into yellow.

Anakin Skywalker finally turned into Darth Vader and his eyes transformed Yellow. The main reason behind this change was that he wanted to save Padme from her fate.

Palpatine gave him false hope and told him that he could save Padme through the Dark Side. Nothing could have stopped him from embracing the Dark Side after hearing that statement.

That’s how Anakin’s journey to Vader finally began. He began to slowly become corrupted and absorbed by the Dark Force. He even massacred his fellow Jedi Members and that’s the point when his eyes started to transform.

Darth Sidious was the one who pushed Darth Vader to further his corruption and criminal activity. His eyes began yellowing primarily because of the hate and rage that he was feeling. While fighting Obi-Wan Kenobi, his eyes went yellow from being so overcome with hatred and anger.

His eyes grew yellow the more brutality he displayed and the more violent he became. This demonstrates that he had attained the degree of corruption required to change the color of a person’s eyes. All because of Palpatine!

Are Yoda’s Eyes Yellow? 

Yoda is known for being the wisest member of the Jedi. He’s the Grand Jedi Master, is it possible for a character like Yoda to possess yellow eyes? You’ll find the truth very interesting.

Yoda initially has amber eyes, Meaning; his eyes color are a mixture of green and yellow. We know that Yoda has a green lightsaber; it literally indicates that he is one of the wise and experienced warriors.

He never relies on weapons and keeps focused on himself. That’s why even the Dark Side seems to be weak in front of Yoda. But don’t you make Yoda angry because once he gets mad he’ll create his own Dark Side. Let’s take a look at the moment when Yoda was filled with rage.

Yoda was mad and furious as he battled Darth Sidious in combat. He wasn’t yet possessed by the Dark Side, and his eyes weren’t yellow either, but this does not imply that he has a personal Dark Side. Even though he has a dark side, he maintains it under control.

In episode 12 of Season 6 of “The Clone Wars,” the priestesses tested Yoda and discovered the Dark Side when he was engaged in combat with Darth Sidious. He had the Dark Side, but he was in control of it. His eyes never went yellow since his Dark Side was not strong enough.

This proves that Yoda possesses the Dark Side as well and showed a glimpse of it during his combat with Darth Sidious. He fought back against the Dark Force and maintained his strength. He quickly backed off after realizing it was wrong to let his hatred and anger control him.

This explains that Yoda also has his own Dark Side and if he gets mad enough, the results will affect him.

He avoided being consumed by Dark Force because he was able to maintain his temper. Yoda was successful in overcoming the force, but he also had to admit defeat to none other than Palpatine. Palpatine could have been defeated if we had used his Dark Side power, but he decided against it and resisted the urge.

Why Count Dooku Doesn’t Have Yellow Eyes?

Interestingly, one must not forget the unique case of Darth Tyranus, commonly known as Count Dooku, as he poses a fascinating exception to the typical yellow Sith eyes phenomenon.

Dooku, who had served as Darth Sidious’ apprentice for almost ten years, showed remarkable prowess in the dark side of the Force, making him a formidable opponent.

He had triumphed over Obi-Wan and Anakin and even put up an impressive fight against the venerable Yoda. Looking at his achievements as a member of the Dark Force, it’s not ordinary for him to have the Yellow Eyes, right? Well, you are wrong.

Looking through straight point, Dooku’s eyes should’ve turned Yellow but they never did, and let us tell you, the reason is quite marvelous.

The main reason why Count Dooky never had Yellow eyes is that he never had the motivations of evil and was never consumed by the Dark Emotions as they did with Anakin.

Unlike the other Sith members, Dooku despised the Jedi Order because he believed they had lost their path.

He only despised them because of the rising corruption within the Republic’s Senate. He didn’t have any personal hatred or dark emotions towards the Jedi, he only despised them because of the Jedi’s philosophical and political goals.

In fact, if we take a deep look at his character, Dooku thought he was benefiting the galaxy by obliterating the Republic and setting up the Confederacy of Independent Systems in its stead.

Nevertheless, Dooku’s eyes remained original and never turned yellow because he was not fueled by anger.

Disney bought Lucasfilm, everyone was giving mad props to George Lucas for the success of Star Wars. But here’s the thing, he only directed one of the OG trilogy movies – A New Hope. He was still hella involved in all of them, though.

For the prequels, he even stepped back into the director’s chair because everyone else was too scared to take on the task of following up the classics.

Then Disney came in and tried to do their own thing by having a different director for each episode, but that kinda fell apart. I mean, each era of Star Wars has its own vibe depending on who’s running the show, but let’s be real, the OG trilogy is still the most successful.

A New Hope was a freakin’ phenomenon when it came out in ’77. It made bank at the box office, like, seriously.

And get this: Fox was so uninterested in the franchise that Lucas was able to negotiate the rights to make sequels AND merchandising.

The dude passed up a cool half a million dollars in directing fees to make sure he got those rights, which meant he could do sequels his way and rake in all the dough from toys, books, comics, and more.

Why Did Lucas Step Away from Directing ‘The Empire Strikes Back’?

Star Wars prequels

The creator of the Star Wars franchise, George Lucas, has always been a busy man. He was everywhere in the series and besides managing Lucasfilm, there were other thousands of tasks he was trying to hold.

He was managing Lucasfilm and its effects studio ILM, raising money for upcoming films, and ensuring that The Empire Strikes Back didn’t bomb like a fish out of water.

With everything going on, Lucas was aware that he wouldn’t be able to devote the time necessary to the sequel. He was forced to hand over the director’s chair to someone else, which was unthinkable.

To direct Empire, Lucas didn’t just choose anyone. He gave a ton of well-known directors and actors serious consideration, including Francis Ford Coppola, John Badham, and Alan Parker. However, none of them were chosen. Instead, Lucas chose Irvin Kershner, a professor from his time in film school.

Kershner hesitated before accepting the position, and who could blame him? He had to follow up the biggest film in the galaxy with a sequel so excellent that Lucas could continue producing Star Wars films indefinitely.

But Kershner stepped up, and with the assistance of science fiction icon Leigh Brackett (who sadly wrote one draft before she passed away) and Lawrence Kasdan (who continued where Brackett left off), they were able to produce a script that satisfied Lucas’s vision while also adding some witty dialogue for which Kasdan was known.

With Kershner in charge and Kasdan editing the script, Lucas was free to run his empire, encourage the ILM special effects artists to push the limits, and visualize the future of Star Wars. The Empire Strikes Back evolved into the darker, more adult sequel that we all know and love as a result of Kershner’s vision.

Empire, the second Star Wars movie, became a worldwide phenomenon and is now regarded as one of the best films ever produced! Additionally, it paved the way for upcoming films, ensuring that everyone will see more Star Wars! It was a bittersweet victory, though, because Irvin Kershner turned down the chance to direct the next movie. So, the hunt for Return of the Jedi’s ideal director began.

Lucas had his sights set on Steven Spielberg, a friend, but he was forced to back off after running into trouble with the Director’s Guild of America. Who could forget the moment he made an attempt to hire David Lynch?

Lucas’s Decision to Direct All Three of the Prequels

The key factor in the success of the first Star Wars trilogy was George Lucas’s creative abilities. He was able to give Lucasfilm and ILM the necessary attention while concentrating on creating plot treatments. But let’s just say that George’s skills in screenwriting and directing aren’t that great. He’s actually a rather average director. Of course, nobody is perfect.

Lucas ran into trouble when it came time to make the prequels. All of Hollywood’s power players, including Spielberg and Zemeckis, were too afraid to accept the challenge of continuing the original trilogy. What did Lucas do then?

He decided to take matters into his own hands and write and direct each of the three episodes. In hindsight, this choice was both brave and honorable.

The fact that Lucas was surrounded by a group of “yes men,” who were hesitant to tell him when his ideas were bad, didn’t help. And let’s face it, some of those concepts were simply awful. Nevertheless, the prequel trilogy did have some positive aspects. Even if the dialogue and direction were awkward, the ideas were brilliant. And Lucas deserves praise for having such a distinct and audacious vision.

Disney Attempting the Original Trilogy Approach

The Disneyfication of Star Wars was a time of great uncertainty for Lucas’s loyal fans. With Disney taking the reins, Lucas’s story treatments were unceremoniously tossed aside, and the sequel trilogy was kicked off with a new director for each episode. JJ Abrams, the guy who rebooted Star Trek, was picked to direct the first episode, followed by Rian Johnson, and Colin Trevorrow was supposed to cap it all off. But, unfortunately for Trevorrow, his previous film was a catastrophic flop, so he was fired from the project.

Then, The Last Jedi was released and it caused a schism in the fandom that is still being felt today. Disney panicked and brought back JJ Abrams to direct the final installment. The Rise of Skywalker, as it was titled, felt more like a sequel to The Force Awakens than a sequel to The Last Jedi. It’s a mess of a movie that tries to do too much and ends up doing nothing well. However, at least the three films are consistent in their lack of coherence and vision.

The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi were both directed by guys who had the time to plan and execute their visions. They were unique and felt like their own entities. But The Rise of Skywalker was a disaster that even a Jedi mind trick couldn’t save. Maybe they should have stuck with Lucas’s original ideas.

George Lucas’s decision to relinquish his director’s chair but maintain a heavy presence in every other aspect of the original Star Wars trilogy was the secret ingredient to its success.

It’s fascinating to observe how two different trilogies, one created entirely by a single artist and the other with two-thirds directed by one man, resulted in diverse outcomes. The original trilogy maintained its freshness behind the camera, all driven by the genius of a man who was undeservedly ridiculed in the 2000s.

Let’s hope that as time passes, individuals will overcome their apprehensions about Lucas due to his work on the prequels and recognize his ingenuity and creativity in making the first three Star Wars films, restoring respect for his name. Who knows, maybe he can even inspire some new “Lucas-tic” filmmakers in the future.

There is no way that you have wondered if “What in the name of force is this” being you’re a hardcore fan of  “Skywalker Saga” flicks and stumbled upon the Holocrons.

Well, you probably know why Holocrons are all the rage if you’ve been keeping up with Star Wars: The Clone Wars or Star Wars Rebels.

These little gadgets made their first impression and are still causing quite chaos in the Star Wars universe since they appeared in the Clone Wars Season 2 premiere back in 2009.

These Holocrons are pretty darn special as both the Jedi and the Sith have been using them for ages. Moreover, it has played a crucial part in different Star Wars events.

In fact, as new series and films expand our knowledge of the galaxy far, far away, we can expect to see even more Holocrons popping up and blowing our minds.

What Is The Holocron Used For?

These devices are like information-storage powerhouses, holding precious knowledge and ancient lessons that can be played back as interactive holograms.

Imagine a pocket-sized polyhedron that fits snugly in your hand, is made of some kind of crystally material, and can only be opened by those with Force sensitivity.

Sounds like something straight out of a sci-fi flick, right?

Once opened, these little storage gems become all kinds of physically manipulable. The mechanical bits move, giving its users access to all the knowledge stored inside.

Moreover, the secrets these things hold are just something else. According to Jedi Master Jocasta Nu, “Holocrons contain the most closely guarded secrets of the Jedi Order.”

However, the Sith Holocrons are no slouches either. They’re chock-full of treasured knowledge of the dark side, and just as coveted as their Jedi counterparts.

With all the practical and historical value these things hold, it’s no wonder they were often safeguarded in Sith and Jedi Temples.

It’s like these little devices are the Fort Knox of the Star Wars universe!

Why Can Only Jedi Or Sith Open A Holocron?

Did you know that the first-ever Holocrons were made by the Dai Bendu?

Unlike their Jedi and Sith successors, these monks didn’t discriminate based on your Force alignment.

Their Holocrons were like an open house party, welcoming even the least skilled Force-users to come and partake in their knowledge.

It’s like they were the original influencers of the Force, spreading good vibes to anyone who wanted to join in.

But the Jedi and Sith were not as chill as the Dai Bendu. They were all about passing on their knowledge only to their own kind – light-side and dark-side experts, respectively.

That’s why Holocrons made by them had an extra layer of security – the Force-related kind.

And just like people, every Holocron is unique, based on the teachings held inside. So one must listen to what it’s trying to tell you before it will open up.

However, light-side and dark-side adepts have a better chance of accessing Jedi and Sith Holocrons.

Although rumor has it that a Jedi trying to access a Sith Holocron would need to have the willpower of a thousand bandhas and the focus of a laser beam.

Besides that, just being in the presence of a Sith Holocron could make a Jedi feel like they ate too much space-chili. So, they must think twice about what they are about to do!

The Different Types Of Holocrons

Types Of Holocrons

Well, there are three types of Holocrons in total. First, we got the OG Holocrons, made by the Dai Bendu.

Then we got Jedi Holocrons, which are like crystalline cubes or dodecahedrons, and Sith Holocrons, which are palm-sized pyramids or tetrahedrons.

And the crazy thing about these is that they are locked up tighter than a stormtrooper’s helmet.

The Jedi and Sith Holocrons are only accessible by the most Force-sensitive ones out there.

That’s why they’re the perfect way to pass down information that’s top secret, guarded wisdom, or some serious skeletons in the closet.

Now, we know what you’re thinking. “Three types of Holocrons? That’s it?” No, because there’s more.

Back in Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones (2002), the props department crafted a new type of Holocron.

They called it the Great Holocron, and it made its canonical debut in a reference book in 2015. It is a pentagonal dodecahedron with crystal facets and all sorts of mechanical bits and bobs.

And yeah, it’s actually affiliated with the Jedi Order.

How Many Jedi Holocron Are There?

So back in the day before the Galactic Republic, Jedi were cranking out Holocrons like nobody’s business. Like, hundreds of them, crazy isn’t it?

Most of them were kept in the Jedi Archives on Coruscant, but some of the Jedi locked them up tight so nobody can use the dark side powers.

But then came the Empire’s Great Jedi Purge, and all those Holocrons in the temple were straight-up lost. And to make matters worse, the recipe for making these Holcrons was lost too.

Are Holocrons Sentient?

While Legends used to go crazy describing Holocrons, we don’t know much about their Canon counterparts, but what we do know is pretty similar.

So, it’s safe to say that Holocrons in both Legends and Canon work in basically the same way.

Basically, they are created and accessed through the Force. They’ve got crystal structures that can channel the Force, like the Kyber crystals in a lightsaber.

Jedi Holocrons are even smart enough to detect a user’s Force skills and can block access to info that’s too advanced for them.

But they aren’t alive, they’re just imbued with the Force, which allows for some interesting interactions with Force-users.

In Star Wars Rebels, we see that when a Jedi Holocron and a Sith Holocron are opened at the same time by a light-side adept and a dark-side expert and they can fuse together and give answers to both users.

So, when Jedi Padawan Ezra Bridger and former Sith Lord Maul combined their Holocrons, they got pointed toward Tatooine.

For Ezra, this led to a chance encounter with Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. For Maul, it meant a showdown with his long-time nemesis.

But  Holocrons are pretty rare, and after the Empire’s Great Jedi Purge, most of them were lost.

And even if anyone knew how to make them, they would probably need a Jedi or Sith Master to open them.

So, unless one is Force-sensitive or has got one of these relics lying around, they are out of luck.

The Difference Between A Wayfinder And A Holocron

And some fans were left scratching their heads, wondering why the filmmakers didn’t just introduce a Sith Holocron instead.

The accompanying visual dictionary tried to explain away the controversy, but it just made things more confusing.

So, what’s the difference between a Wayfinder and a Holocron?

It’s like comparing a book to a compass. Holocrons are like books, full of knowledge and wisdom. Meanwhile, Wayfinders function like compasses or partial maps, guiding users to specific locations based on the data stored within them. It’s like the difference between reading a map and following a GPS.

According to Canon, Jedi were some of the galaxy’s first-known “way finders,” using their Force-enhanced instincts to explore the stars and navigate hyperspace.

But as technology evolved, Wayfinders likely served a different purpose. In the end, it all comes down to personal preference.

Are you a bookworm who likes to read up on everything, or do you prefer to get straight to the point with a GPS-style device?

Anyway, it seems like we’ll be seeing more of both Wayfinders and Holocrons in future Star Wars shows and movies.

Do you ever think that something you’re doing is not right but later it becomes the best thing to do? Well, I don’t know about you guys but there are many film franchises that were thought to be a total flop or risky project.

There are many movies and movie franchises that were thought to be a flop or risky but we will only talk about Star Wars in this article.

Yes, you read that correctly, back in 1977 Star Wars was thought to be a flop and risky. Nobody even thought it to be one of the most loved movie franchises around the world at that time. As Disney bought Lucasfilm, you can watch every franchise of Star Wars on Disney+

But there are arguments and disagreements on which order you should watch Star Wars as there are prequels, television shows, and other movies like Solo and Rogue One.

So what is the correct order to watch the Star Wars franchise? However or whichever order you are going to watch Star Wars, this article will help you in every order you choose.

You might get confused if you listen to everyone as every people have a different perspective so let’s make it easy for you. If you are really confused then you might as well start watching Star Wars on the release order.

Serial Order to Watch

You can watch Star Wars however you please but it would be easy for you to understand if you follow our guidance in this serial order we will be listing Star Wars serially so it would be convenient for you while watching the movie. Here is the list in serial order.

Prequel Trilogy

  • Episode I – The Phantom Menace (Release Date: May 19, 1999)
  • Episode II – Attack of the Clones (Release Date: May 16, 2002)
  • Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (Release Date: May 19, 2005)

Original Trilogy

  • Episode IV – A New Hope (Release Date: May 25, 1977)
  • Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (Release Date: May 21, 1980)
  • Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (Release Date: May 25, 1983)

Sequel Trilogy

  • Episode VII – The Force Awakens (Release Date: December 18, 2015)
  • Episode VIII – The Last Jedi (Release Date: December 15, 2017)
  • Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker (Release Date: December 20, 2019)

Anthology Films

  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Release Date: December 16, 2016) (non-compulsory)
  • Solo: A Star Wars Story (Release Date: May 25, 2018) (non-compulsory)
  • Rogue Squadron (Release Date: December 22, 2023) (Not Released)

Television Series

  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008-2020)
  • Star Wars Rebels (2014-2018)
  • Star Wars: Resistance (2018-2020)
  • The Mandalorian (2019-present)

Here we have listed the television series of Star Wars at last so that it would be a bit easy so you can either watch these series serially or you can also watch it after you finish all the movies first. Personally, I think that watching series serially with the movie would be a hassle so If I were you then I would watch the series after I finish watching the movies.

Machete Order

So you are a hardcore fan of Star Wars and trying to watch it again? Then you should try watching it in Machete order cause it will change your experience. So what’s special about the Machete order? That is what I am about to explain.

In this order you will start watching movies from Episode IV – A New Hope, Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back, Episode II – Attack of the Clones, Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, and after that, you will watch Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.

In this order, you will skip Episode I – The Phantom Menace completely as the movie fails on many things and it is self-sufficient and has no link with its prequel. I think that most of us feel kind of uncomfortable seeing their romance because of their age gap but in this order, we can see or feel like they are old friends from their childhood and you can enjoy the movie without feeling uncomfortable.

But if you still want to add The Phantom Menace to your watch list then you can follow the guideline of the Machete Order’s creator Rod Hilton. Hilton suggests that if you are still watching The Phantom Menace then you can watch it after you watch the whole movie like other non-compulsory movies like Rogue One and Solo. Here is the list of Machete Order.

Rinster Order (Godfather Order)

This order is called Rinster because it is named after one of the diehard Star Wars fans Ernest Rinster. If you are a fan of Star Wars then you might already know who Rinster is and also he has some importance in the Star Wars community.

There is also an order called ‘Godfather Order’ and both Rinster and Godfather orders are the same which is why I am listing or placing both in one. By the way, Rinster order came before the Godfather order, though you might want to know. So here goes the list of Rinster and Godfather orders.

  • Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (Release Date: May 21, 1980)

Where Can You Watch Star Wars Movies?

The easiest way to watch Star Wars is to subscribe to Disney+ where most of the Star Wars movies and shows are available but if you don’t want to subscribe to Disney+ then there are also other options.

You can buy digital six collections of Star Wars from Google Movies, Amazon, and iTunes. You can also subscribe to Amazon Prime Video where you can watch Star Wars movies.

Another option is you can find a DVD collection of Star Wars movies and shows and watch it. I think you can also find the DVD of Star Wars on Amazon.

The series; The Ice Age holds a special spot in our hearts. The Blue Sky Studios’ feature debut made a super hit and inspired many other studios to make a product that consists of epic adventure, humor, and most importantly, which hits us with nostalgia.

However, Blue Sky Studios were shut down in 2021, and original distribution partner 20th Century Fox is going to handle their production.

Since its first release in 2002, there have been 5 more releases of the Ice Age saga with the latest being Ice Age: Adventures of Buck Wild. 

What is the correct order of the Ice Age movies?

The correct order of the “Ice Age” movies is as follows:

Movie Title Release Date Box Office Earnings
Ice Age 2002 $383 million
Ice Age: The Meltdown 2006 $660 million
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs 2009 $886 million
Ice Age: Continental Drift 2012 $877 million
Ice Age: Collision Course 2016 $408 million

Watching the Ice Age Saga in order is really important because each movie links with another in some way, let’s take a  look at the order that you should focus watching on.

Ice Age (2002)

2002 was really an iconic year, we saw the release of the epic cinematic creation known as “Ice Age,” given birth by none other than the Blue Sky Studios.

In those days of the past, the D-P-D trio of Disney Pixar and Dreamworks held control over the world of animation videos.

The movie had some ionic figures, such as;  Sid, a sloth of indolent disposition, Manny, a mammoth of gargantuan proportions, and Diego, a Saber-Toothed Tiger of unforgiving prowess. Their grand quest began with a mission to transport Roshan, a human baby, back to its rightful home.

Reflecting upon this veritable masterpiece, no one can come up with such a storyline; children, animals, and trials and tribulations, all mushed with a delightful sense of humor.

Who among us can forget the beloved Scrat, the most renowned character of the “Ice Age” franchise, who won the hearts of millions?

The narrative takes us back to an ancient era, some twenty thousand years ago, when humans journeyed from the North to the South, traversing mountainous terrain.

Among their number were Chieftain Runar, his spouse Nadia, and their youngling Roshan. During the voyage Soto, the leader of the saber-tooth tiger group, spies on the party and seizes upon the opportunity to exact revenge upon humans for their heinous crime of killing his pack members.

Soto plots to capture and eat Nadia’s children. so he prepares a plan. He makes an ambush, but fate is on the side of Nadia, who manages to flee with her offspring, jumping off a waterfall. Soto became really mad that he wasn’t able to succeed in his goal, so he orders Diego to find the human and bring it back to him.

Meanwhile, Manny and Sid continue on their journey, and fate intervenes once again as they happen upon Nadia. She is seriously wounded and is at death’s door.

She knows she can’t make it to the end and in her final moments, so she entrusts Roshan to Manny’s care.

Manny initially intends to abandon the child, but Sid convinces him to return the baby to its tribe, a task in which Manny is unwilling to partake. Thus, an innocent child awaits their aid while Soto seeks to snuff out its life.

Manny, Diego, and Sid embark upon their arduous journey to return Roshan to his people, unaware of the countless challenges and obstacles that lie ahead.

Will they overcome all the tribulations that await them and succeed in their mission, or will they succumb to Soto’s nefarious machinations?

Ice Age: The Meltdown (2006)

Hold onto your hats folks because things are about to get wild! Carlos Saldanha’s second installment in the Ice Age: The Meltdown, hit theaters on March 31, 2006, and let us tell you, it’s a beauty.

The old gang is back, but this time they’ve got some new friends joining the venture. Ellie, Crash, and Eddie are just a few of the new faces viewers will meet as Manny, Diego, and Sid face even more perilous obstacles than before.

Natural disasters abound as the gang tries to survive a flood that threatens to wipe out their homeland. While everyone’s having a good time enjoying the calamity, Sid does something totally boneheaded and tries to dive off a massive waterfall.

Manny and Diego, being the responsible ones, go to save Scrat and end up finding themselves in even deeper trouble. As it turns out, the entire valley they call home is melting away, leaving only the outer layer of the glacier protecting them from certain doom.

Manny tries to explain the gravity of the situation to everyone, but nobody wants to listen. It’s not until an imposing vulture warns them of the upcoming disaster that the villagers start to take things seriously.

With panic in the air, the council calls a meeting and discusses the possibility of Manny’s species going extinct. Manny wants to start a family and save his species but he believes that can’t find any other mammoths.

Just when he thinks all hope is lost, he stumbles upon Ellie, the only female mammoth left in the world. The catch? She thinks she’s a possum because she is accompanied by two of them, Crash and Eddie, whom she believes are her brothers.

As if things weren’t already complicated enough, the gang soon discovers that the warm weather is a massive threat to their home. If the glacier barrier falls, it’s curtains for the valley. With time running out, Manny and his friends have to race against the clock to reach a boat at the end of the valley that may be their only hope.

Can they save themselves and their species from certain destruction, or will they be doomed to a watery grave? One thing’s for sure, The Meltdown is a wild ride from start to finish that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009)

The film, “The Dawn of the Dinosaurs,” hit the theaters on July 1, 2009, showing in a new era of cinematic delight. The story begins with a search party for Sid, who is lost in the bloodthirsty domain of prehistoric creatures.

Continuing the previous narrative, the heroes have altered their way of life after their former land was destroyed by an unspeakable tragedy. The once lone mammoth, Manny, and his significant other, Ellie, are now bound by the love that unites them, and they are eagerly anticipating the arrival of their first progeny. (She finally accepts herself as Mammoth!) 

Yet, Manny is worried about the unborn child’s well-being; he can’t shake the memory of the hunters who ruthlessly killed out his family’s existence.

Meanwhile, Scrat, the iconic acorn-hoarding squirrel, remains determined in the endless pursuit of his beloved nut. However, the appearance of the seductive female saber-toothed squirrel, Scratte, has appeared and become his next obsession.

Now, he is grappling with two competing desires: the desire to possess his acorn and the desire to conquer the heart of the fetching Scratte.

Manny’s worry is reaching fever pitch, as he struggles to come with the immense responsibility of fatherhood, particularly because of his traumatic past. At the same time, Diego, the once-proud tiger, finds himself frustrated in his attempts to take down his prey. He begins to think that he is no more the proud tiger he was once before.

As Manny and Ellie celebrate the joy of their new family member, Sid is consumed by envy and resentment, craving what they have. He wishes to have a baby and stumbles upon three eggs in a cold place, beneath the land and impulsively decides to adopt them, naming them Shelly, Yoko, and Eggbert.

Manny, however, is worried about Sid’s rash decision and begs him to return the eggs to their original location. Sid, however, sticks with his decision, leading to a harrowing sequence of events that results in the hatching of the eggs.

To their horror, the eggs contain a baby Tyrannosaurus, a ferocious and menacing dinosaur that strikes fear in the hearts of all who behold it. Sid, however, is unfazed by the terrifying presence of the creatures and attempts to care for them, despite their bloodthirsty natures.

As a result, chaos occurs, with the baby Tyrannosaurs wreaking havoc amongst the group and destroying the cherished toy that Manny crafted for his unborn child.

The situation quickly gets out of control when Momma, the mother of the Tyrannosaurs, discovers Sid and her offspring in her territory. Manny and his allies follow the trail and discover an enormous rainforest that serves as the domain of the dinosaurs. Meanwhile, Diego gets bullied by his new herd, leaving him to grapple with feelings of inadequacy and loneliness.

Sid’s desire to have a family of his own leads him down a treacherous path, culminating in the theft of Momma’s eggs and his eventual entrapment in the perilous domain of the ancient dinosaurs.

It is here that he encounters One-Eyed Buck, a skilled dinosaur hunter who will aid him in his quest for survival but not without first enduring a host of daunting trials and tribulations.

Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012)

Released on July 13, 2012, The Continental Drift, distributed by 20th Century Studios and directed by Mike Thurmeier and Steve Martino, tells the story of a group of animals who encounter a band of pirates while trying to escape from dangerous sea warriors on a precarious ice block that is cracking due to Scrat’s antics.

Manny and Ellie, now parents of a teenage daughter named Peaches, are struggling to adjust to the challenges of parenting a young adult. Peaches often visit her male mammoth friend, Ethan, which concerns Manny. Despite Ellie’s attempts to convince him that Peaches is growing up, Manny isn’t ready to accept that fact yet.

During one of Peaches’ outings with her friend Molly, Manny becomes overprotective and abducts her, causing Peaches to feel humiliated and expresses to Manny that he has never been a true father to her which makes both of them feel upset.

Meanwhile, Sid reunites with his Granny, but their joy is short-lived as she abandons him once more.

As Manny and his friends search for Granny, they encounter a group of deadly pirates led by Captain Gutt and Shira. Although Gutt invites them to join the pirates, they decline.

The pirates feel humiliated because of the denial, so they try to force their way out but it only leads to a failed attempt and the destruction of their pirate ship.

Between the commotion, Shira is nowhere to be seen. The crew worries about Shira’s disappearance but Gutt shows no concern and abandons her. Luckily, she is later rescued by the herd.

Scrat’s obsession with acorns leads to a geologic chain reaction that causes chaos and separates Ellie, Peaches, and Manny from each other. They find themselves with Sid, Diego, and Sid, but their troubles are far from over as they face further obstacles and heroic moments.

Ice Age: Collision Course (2016)

The mind-boggling and puzzling movie, The Collision Course, directed by Mike Thurmeier, was released on June 19, 2016, and distributed by 20th Century Studios.

The movie opens with Scrat who is in search of his precious acorn. While scouring for it, he finds himself in a mysterious cave and stumbles upon an enigmatic object that sets off a spaceship-like saucer that launches him into the vast expanse of space.

He hurtles through space, crashing into various planets like a pinball game, much to the delight of the audience. Ultimately, Scrat places his acorn onto an asteroid, but it shatters, plummeting straight to Earth.

Meanwhile, Manny and Ellie are busy preparing their daughter, Peaches, for her wedding to Julian. As for Diego and Shira, they are looking forward to a future together with a family, but their ferocious looks terrify small children.

Poor Sid had planned to propose to Francine, but she dumps him right before he can pop the question, leaving him feeling sad and lonely.

However, the celebration is abruptly interrupted by a catastrophic meteor shower, raining meteoroids down from the sky, which wreaks havoc on the anniversary party. In the midst of this chaos, the animals manage to escape unharmed.

At the same time, Buck finds himself on a lost planet, trying to return a stolen dinosaur egg to its rightful owner after it was pilfered by three tyrannosaurs named Roger, Gavin, and Gertie. He discovers an ancient stone pillar and takes it back with him, leading him to cross paths with Manny and his friends.

With so much happening all at once, it’s impossible to predict what’s going to happen next in this mind-bending and unpredictable tale.

The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild (2022)

The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild, directed by John C. Donkin and produced by Denise L. Rottina, hit theaters on January 28, 2022.

This latest Ice Age movie takes a different approach, as the main characters are nowhere to be found. Instead, the story focuses on Buck, joined by his brothers Eddie and Crash.

Trouble begins when Eddie and Crash accidentally cause a massive avalanche, destroying their home and leaving the gang homeless. Desperate for a new place to live, they stumble upon the Lost World, a land filled with dangerous, ancient creatures – Dinosaurs!

Buck and his brothers embark on a treacherous journey against the prehistoric monsters, forming new alliances and facing perilous challenges along the way.

Unfortunately, this movie received a lot of negative reviews and criticism. Fans were disappointed with the absence of their beloved characters, poor animation quality, new voice actors, and the franchise’s biggest star, Scrat.

It’s quite a surprise that Leonardo DiCaprio only has one Oscar to his name. Keeping in mind that he’s been in the Hollywood scene for seemingly forever, giving hits after hits, only having one Oscar is quite a surprise.

Leonardo has showcased his talent time and again. He has countless skills in his repertoire. He can take on romantic roles as he did in Shakespeare’s adaptation of Romeo + Juliet and can also perform the part of a mentally disabled teenager as he did in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? (which gained him an Oscar Nomination in 1993)

No matter what role he has to take on, the culture of it, or the accent he has to adopt, he can always assume them with perfection.

With that in mind, let’s scroll and take a look at some of the Best Leonardo DiCaprio Movies.

Critters 3 (1991)

Director: Kristine Peterson

Writers: Rupert Harvey, Barry Opper

Starring: Aimee Brooks, John Calvin, Katherine Cortez, Leonardo DiCaprio, Geoffrey Blake, and William Hanna

Despite being a low-budget sci-fi horror comedy, it is still known for being DiCaprio’s big-screen debut. Critter 3 was the movie where it all began for Leonardo. Leo’s role as a floppy-haired skate-punk tween is perfect for his character and the film’s theme.

Everything about the movie is filled with creepiness. The story starts with Leonardo being stuck in his dirtbag. Dad’s tenement building, where terrorizes because they have man-eating furballs.

The movie might not have the perfect quality or sci-fi, and it might be low-rented. Still, the performance that Leonardo has shown is beyond perfect. His dialogue and acting are on the spot. There can’t be any other character who can portray the ideal act just like Leonardo did.

Body of Lies (2008)

Director: Ridley Scott

Based on: Body of Lies by David Ignatius

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Russell Crowe, Mark Strong, Golshifteh Farahani, Oscar Isaac, and Simon McBurney

In ‘Body of Lies, ‘ Leonardo perfectly portrays his role as a detective. The desperation the audience gets while looking at the CIA operative role in the middle of nowhere is beyond thrilling.

When we look at the scenario of movies, it gives us the feeling that we’re taken apart, and it couldn’t have been possible without DiCaprio’s outstanding act. Leonardo was in his prime moment. More so, he was an ‘Action Hero Leo.’

Poison Ivy (1992)

Director: Katt Shea

Writers: Melissa Goddard

Starring: Tom Skerritt, Sara Gilbert, Cheryl Ladd, and Drew Barrymore

Leo doesn’t have much screen time in this movie. He has a few seconds of screen time but does the job in those. The appearance of Leo and the other actors might seem odd to the viewers, but it perfectly suited the movie’s theme.

The iconic movie was directed by Katt Shea and was nominated for the 1992 Grand Jury Prize of Best Film at the Sundance Festival. The movie is about a high school girl and how she takes on her life each day. The movie has some great scenes where that portray Leonardo perfectly.

The Basketball Diaries (1995)

Director: Scott Kalvert 

Based on: The Basketball Diaries by Jim Carroll

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Bruno Kirby, Lorraine Bracco, Ernie Hudson, Patrick McGaw, James Madio, Michael Imperioli, and Mark Wahlberg

The Basketball Diaries has to be one of the favorite movies of most fans. The performance that Leo portrayed in the movie was way beyond perfect. The adaptation of Jim Carroll’s memoir is when he was in his teenage years and fell into the trap of drugs instead of following his goal to become a high school basketball star.

The movie was just perfect, to begin with. Leo’s act with all the drug scenes, screaming, and betrayal couldn’t have been more perfect. The montage, the addiction-drama cliches, everything in the movie was art.

The chaos you’ll see while watching the movie is insane. However, it still manages to come on the heels of his Oscar nomination for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? The dedication that the young man threw in this movie was insane.

The Quick and the Dead (1995)

Director: Sam Raimi 

Writers: Simon Moore

Starring: Sharon Stone, Gene Hackman, Russell Crowe, Roberts Blossom, Kevin Conway, Lance Henriksen, Pat Hingle, Gary Sinise, and Leonardo DiCaprio

Critters 3 might be Leo’s debut movie, but the one that showed him the path to a successful career was  The Quick in the Dead. The film’s title might not make much sense to the viewers, but it suits the mystery theme of the movie.

The movie’s gunfights, action, gang members, and everything are spot on. The end is also filled with tragedy (spoiler alert). The film is excellent and when we add the performance that Leo has shown in the movie is like adding a cherry on top of the cake.

Total Eclipse (1995)

Director: Agnieszka Holland

Writers: Christopher Hampton

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, David Thewlis, Romane Bohringer, and Dominique Blanc

The epic storyline that Agnieszka Holland has portrayed is stunning, which shows the affairs and relationship between Paul Verlaine (David Thewlis) and Arthur Rimbaud (DiCaprio), the 19th-century poets.

Some parts also show intense sex scenes between the two leads, which was why the movie became a scandalous subject matter. Leonardo’s role in the film is of an all-too-modern young punk version of the legendary power that comes into his life to bring chaos and disrupt his mentor/lover’s marriage.

Celebrity (1998)

Director: Woody Allen

Writers: Woody Allen

Starring: Hank Azaria, Kenneth Branagh, Judy Davis, Leonardo DiCaprio, Melanie Griffith, Famke Janssen, Michael Lerner, Joe Mantegna, Bebe Neuwirth, Winona Ryder, and Charlize Theron

In ‘Celebrity’, we can show the perfect portrait of Leo as an actor. Still, it wouldn’t have been possible without the appearance of some of the greatest- Kenneth Branagh, Winona Ryder, Melanie Griffith, Sam Rockwell, Gretchen Mol, Charlize Theron, Famke Janssen, Donald Trump, and future Entourage star Adrian Grenier.

In the movie, DiCaprio takes the role of a young movie star, Brandon Darrow, who likes gambling, partying, and sex. Let’s take a look at what Lisa Schwarzbaum reviewed; “In every minute of DiCaprio’s participation—some 10 to 20 in all—he juices Celebrity with a power surge that subsides as soon as he exits.”

The film is filled with humor, but the best thing about the movie is the part of DiCaprio, where he perfectly plays an entitled and bratty movie star.

The Man in the Iron Mask (1998)

Director: Randall Wallace

Based on: The Vicomte of Bragelonne: Ten Years Later by Alexandre Dumas

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jeremy Irons, John Malkovich, Gérard Depardieu, and Gabriel Byrne

The Titanic was a massive success for Leonardo DiCaprio and James Cameron. Leo broke many records with this hit, and his next movie araised to win. His act was marvelous as always but what made the audience admire was his part as royal twins Philippe and Louis, good and evil.

Philippe might seem like a boring character, but Leo portrayed it perfectly and delivered the spiciness in Louis as well. He acted so well with both of these characters that it made the writer think if DiCaprio could portray the role of King Joffrey in Game of Thrones.

Gangs of New York (2002)

Director: Martin Scorsese

Writers: Jay Cocks, Steven Zaillian, Kenneth Lonergan.

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, Cameron Diaz, Jim Broadbent

When DiCaprio collated with director Martin Scorsese for the first time, he made the right choice. This was a challenging activity for Leo as he had to deal with going toe-to-toe with one of the greatest actors of all time, Daniel Day-Lewis.

The theme of the movie is set in Manhattan slums during the mid-1800s. The town is run by the criminal “Bill the Butcher,” and when Amsterdam was just a kid, he witnessed the vicious murder of his father. Bill stabbed Amsterdam’s father, and he hadn’t forgotten about that event.

He kept the knife that Billy had used to stab and wanted to avenge the murder of his father. Leo’s performance in the movie was exceptional, and later, he did other films with Scorsese.

Marvin’s Room (1996)

Director: Jerry Zaks

Writer: John Guare, based on the play by Scott McPherson

Starring Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Diane Keaton, Robert DeNiro, and Hume Cronyn

The act that Leo portrayed as the disturbed teen was way beyond perfect. In the movie, Leo adopts the character of Hanks, a young man who tries to set his whole house on fire and gets kept in a mental institution.

In short, the film is about two estranged sisters who reunite again because one needs a bone marrow transplant. The movie has everything you need. It is sentimental, touching, and heartwarming, and it couldn’t have been possible without such incredible cast members.

DiCaprio was also nominated for his first Screen Actors Guild Award. Still, it wasn’t surprising to the fans because he was already set for the Oscars. People knew that Leo was already a talented individual by that time.

J. Edgar (2011)

Director: Clint Eastwood

Writer: Dustin Lance Black

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Naomi Watts, Armie Hammer, and Judi Dench

Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar received many negative reviews for the movies, and we have no idea who we should blame for this. The film asked a lot from Leonardo DiCaprio, he had to look aged, and his appearance was changed entirely. He looked like a monster and barely had any passion while playing this role.

We can’t blame Leo for his performance because he really didn’t get the support he was looking for from his members, and even the script used to alternate in between. The movie gained many negative reviews, but Leo did his best to play the role.

His act was acknowledged, and DiCaprio earned the eighth Golden Globe nomination and the eighth nomination for a Screen Actors Guild Award. From our point of view, this was still not enough. The role he portrayed was worth an Oscar nomination.

The Great Gatsby (2013)

Director: Baz Luhrmann

Writers: Baz Luhrmann, Craig Pearce.

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, and Isla Fisher. 

Baz Luhrmann is known for making the epic Romeo + Juliet. Leo joined him again to act in The Great Gatsby, initially inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s borderline-unfilmable novel.

And let us tell you, Leo perfectly portrayed the role of Jay Gatsby, a wealthy man that has gained suspicious somehow for that. He throws parties and invites some famous guests just to let his friend Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) know that he’s throwing all these parties just in hopes that the woman he loves, Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan), will show up.

We know that every film of Buz Luhrmann is filled with styles, but Leo has added more meaning and depth to the movie. This was also the movie that brought portrayed a natural smile of DiCaprio. He had “one of those rare smiles that you may come across four or five times in life, that seemed to believe in you and understand you just as you would like to be understood and believed in.”

Blood Diamond (2006)

Director: Edward Zwick

Writers: Charles Leavitt, Marshall Herskovitz

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Connelly, Djimon Hounsou, Michael Sheen

The challenges that DiCaprio chooses to do something inspiring for all the actors. He challenges himself if he can do the South African accent. He finds the length of his difficulties and his commitment to his role as Danny Archer genuinely inspiring.

His act was at such a peak that it gained him an Oscar nomination that year. The movie’s story is fascinating. Danny Archer and Solomon Vandy travel to smuggle some valuable diamonds. On their quest, they discover a rare pink diamond.

Leonardo perfectly portrayed the South African accent and also achieved many nominations for his performance; he earned a third Academy Award nomination, a sixth Golden Globe nod, and a seventh Screen Actors Guild nomination.

Don’s Plum (2001)

Director: R. D. Robb

Writers: Bethany Ashton, Tawd Beckman, R.D. Robb, David Stutman, and Dale Wheatley

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Kevin Connolly

You know the actors have performed S-tier performances when the movie gets hit despite having a no-budget, black-and-white indie. The film has never been theatrically released, but it still has gained a lot of fame, thanks to the fantastic actors Toby Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio. The film is also known as; “Leonardo DiCaprio and his crony Tobey Maguire don’t want you to see!”

The movie has a classic vintage story of a group of teens meeting in a diner called Don’s Plum. The film has an exciting account; it is a masterpiece of a ’90s timepiece and must be because of co-stars like; Leo, Maguire, Kevin Connolly, Jenny Lewis, and many other actors.

The Quick and the Dead (1995)

Director: Sam Rami

Writers: Simon Moore

Starring: Sharon Stone, Gene Hackman, Russell Crowe, Roberts Blossom, Kevin Conway, Lance Henriksen, Pat Hingle, Gary Sinise, and Leonardo DiCaprio

Sami Rami perfectly displayed the theme of the movie with a Western style. The film’s story is also interesting, with DiCaprio as the arrogant young cowboy. He showed his performance so well that even Sharon Stone said, “He’s so good, it’s scary,” to EW in 1995. “I was dying to have him be in this movie. I would have carried the boy on my back to the set every day if that’s what it would have taken.”

In the movie, DiCaprio shows his audience that he can just play any role with perfection. He can be terrified, kooky, fantastic, everything. Leo has truly dedicated the western style in this movie.

The Revenant (2015)

Director: Alejandro G. Iñárritu

Writers:  Mark L. Smith, Alejandro G. Iñárritu

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson

How can we forget the Oscar-winning performance of Leonardo DiCaprio? Leonardo finally showed his epic performance and won the Oscars after getting attacked by a bear, Eats Raw Bison Liver, and freezing himself to death.

He deserved the Oscar because he fought against bizarre natures while filming the movie. He was battling against ice-cold rivers, unstable weather, predators, and many more. Even To, Hardy stated that he was surviving in the most immersive way a person can imagine.

He even told Variety, “Sometimes it was just ‘[Hugh] Glass walks up a hill, and the bear fur weighs 120 pounds wet, and I’m freezing my ass off, and it became some of the most difficult stuff to do.” The act that Leo portrayed in the movie can be explained as “action is a character,”

Even when we look at Leo’s character, it is perfectly done. Leo had a sweet-child face; to remake it and look like a struggling man, the directors had to work with several types of facial hair. The directors also played a vital role in giving depth to his performance.

Romeo + Juliet (1996)

Director: Baz Luhrman 

Based on: Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Claire Danes, Brian Dennehy, John Leguizamo, Pete Postlethwaite, Paul Sorvino, and Diane Venora

DiCaprio and Clare Danes couldn’t have portrayed the character more perfectly in Shakespeare’s adaptation. His first collaboration with Baz Luhrmann was perfect. The auditions fell in love with the movie, and that couldn’t have been possible without the iconic act of Leonardo DiCaprio.

Leonardo knows perfectly how actually the movie works. If it wasn’t for his genius and Baz’s direction, the movie’s outcome could’ve ended up as a big failure. The emotions and chemistry he portrayed in the film were top-tier, and this success was just the groundwork for what he would achieve from Titanic.

This Boy’s Life (1993)

Director: Michael Caton-Jones

Based on: This Boy’s Life by Tobias Wolff

Starring: Robert De Niro, Ellen Barkin, Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio was a genius and clever from an early age. He wasn’t afraid of anything. Despite his young age, he delivered a masterpiece on the adaptation of Tobias Wolff.

Leo did his perfect as by playing the role of Toby, the loving son of her single mom Ellen Barkin. But Toby’s life seems to go in the wrong direction after his mother shacks up with  Robert De Niro, respectable but domineering and abusive.

The movie will make you ride on a rollercoaster of emotions; the film is touching, powerful, and shares a strong bond connection. At such a young age, Leonardo proved his skills were already out of the chart.

Shutter Island (2010)

Director: Martin Scorsese

Based on: Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, Emily Mortimer, Patricia Clarkson, and Max von Sydow

Before Inception smashed the Hollywood char, Leonardo showed an exceptional psychological thriller with the help of Martin Scorsese. The nature of the film was filled with mystery. The haunted mystery filled the movie with commotion, and Leonardo portrayed his role perfectly.

The story begins in a mysterious asylum where Leo plays the investigator trying to search for a cryptic inmate at an insane asylum. He starts to do a deep investigation only to discover that he is looking after his personality.

The movie has an insane twist, and the character Leo shows in the film is beyond insane. This will remain one of the underrated movies because it was virtually removed from awards consideration.

What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993)

Director: Lasse Hallström

Based on: What’s Eating Gilbert Grape by Peter Hedges

Starring: Johnny Depp, Juliette Lewis, Mary Steenburgen, Leonardo DiCaprio, and John C. Reilly

No words are enough to describe how perfectly Leonardo has played the role of Arnie, a mentally unstable brother of Johnny Depp. It’s still hard to believe that at the age of 19, Leonardo was able to put a performance this high.

He was too young, but his actions couldn’t have been more perfect. It was the definition of perfection. He did his role so perfectly that Leonardo won his first  Academy Award nomination. Perfecting the part of a mentally unstable character is never easy. Still, the emotion and act that Leo has placed in the movie is a chief’s kiss.

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

Director: Martin Scorsese

Writer: Terence Winter

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie, and Matthew McConaughey

When you ask people about the best film that Martin Scorsese has, The Wolf of Wall Street will always come at the top. The movie is a masterpiece, and to this date, it is still considered one of the best acts that Leonardo has done.

While watching this masterpiece, you’ll feel the words of Jordan Belfort “There’s no nobility in poverty, I’ve been a poor man, and I’ve been a rich man. And I choose rich every fucking time.” It was a performance that the whole globe remembered.

Leonardo played the role so perfectly that he forgot about winning an Oscar; he should’ve won Nobel Peace Prize for this one.

Catch Me If You Can (2002)

Director: Steven Spielberg

Writer: Jeff Nathanson

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Christopher Walken, Amy Adams

Steven Spielberg perfectly directed the real-life crime movie, and it went on to hit a blockbuster. Still, it wouldn’t have been so popular if he hadn’t carefully selected the cast member.

Leonardo portrayed the role of 19-year-old Frank Abagnale, Jr., a doctor, lawyer, pilot, and millionaire. DiCaprio showed that he can simultaneously describe the perfect vicious role by looking innocent. Leonardo again shut the doors of complaint with his position and showed the world that he could take any part!

The movie has to be one of the best, showing a fraction of Leonardo’s perfection. At the film’s beginning, we can see how Leonardo tries to cope with the breakup of their parents, and in the next moment, he becomes a billionaire. This was an Oscar-winning performance, but he only earned his third nomination for a Golden Globe Award.

Django Unchained (2012)

Director: Quentin Tarantino

Writer: Quentin Tarantino

Starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins

If you ask fans of Leanordo in which movie he has shown his best character, they will say Django Unchained for sure. To this date, his role in Django Unchained is one of the movies where Leonardo shows his true character as the ‘most evil.’

DiCaprio portrayed the role of Calvin Candie, the person who is known for being filthy and dirty. He is a man who captures, breeds, and forces his slave to fight with each other. In simpler words, he is a delusional monster, a murderous psychotic.

DiCaprio has perfectly adapted the persona of Southern decadence. He has repeatedly shown the world that he can change his charismatic character into something pure evil. He portrayed the role of slave owner Calvin Candie so perfectly that he even won his ninth nomination for a Golden Globe Award.

The Aviator (2004)

Director: Martin Scorsese

Writer: John Logan

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett, Alan Alda, John C, Reilly, Alan Alda, and Kate Beckinsale

Leonardo can take on any role. He can portray the role of a monster, a mentally disturbed kid, to a tormented American aviator, Howard Hughes. When we look at the movie, we know that director Martin Scorsese knows which cast member he should choose.

The movie has a duration of three hours. In that duration, DiCaprio has perfectly displayed Hughes as a young playboy billionaire, a daredevil innovator, a starlet romance, and a madman.

DiCaprio was so good in this role that it was unexplainable. His act was worth an Oscar, but unfortunately, Jamie Foxx took the award for his role as Ray Charles. He didn’t get the Oscar, but he earned his second Academy Award nomination and his third plus fourth Screen Actors Guild nominations.

Inception (2010)

Director: Christopher Nolan

Writer: Christopher Nolan

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, and Tom Berenger

When Christopher Nolan and Leonardo collabos with each other, we know what it is going to result in, and that is another blockbuster. Nolans is known for his remarkable work in directing, sprawling action sequences, and for specializing the character work.

The movie was challenging. There were challenges for a high-concept sci-fi. He succeeded in making that, and even though Leo didn’t have much sci-fi screen time, he placed his character perfectly with his emotions. He managed to steal the reality from the audience.

Leonardo targeted the mindset of his audience and managed to put them in such a commotion that they couldn’t figure out if they were living in a dream or reality. Even the soundtrack by Hans Zimmer helped to add a layer of confusion to the fans.

Is it a dream or reality? That’s what happens after you’ll watch Inception.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019)

Director: Quentin Tarantino

Writer: Quentin Tarantino 

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Emile Hirsch, Kurt Russell, and Margaret Qualley

When we watch a movie, we always expect the character to show us some humourous moments but also melancholy. In Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Leonardo played the role of Rick Dalton to perfection.

There are so many iconic moments in the ninth movie by Quentin Tarantino. From small to big, the film has filled its audience with pure happiness and melancholy. Leonardo has proved that he can make his audience laugh at some point and make them cry.

The events in the movie are surprising, and it’s amusing to see how Leo has recreated the vintage movie/TV role. DiCaprio didn’t win the Oscars and lost to Joaquin Phoenix. However, his actions will still remain a masterpiece in the industry.

The Departed (2006)

Director: Martin Scorsese

Writer: William Monahan

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, Mark Wahlberg, Martin Sheen, and Alec Baldwin

The Departed has to be one of the most underrated movies by Martin Scorsese. This was Martin’s first movie that helped him win his only Best Director trophy. With that in mind, many fans have already forgotten the iconic role of Leonardo as Billy Costigan.

The role Leo portrayed was perfection, it must’ve been hard to compete against some of the finest actors like Mark Wahlberg, Matt Damon, and Jack Nicolson, but he still showed the depth of his role to the fans.

Billy Costigan works as an undercover cop to get information against the Irish-American mob in South Boston led by gangster Frank Costello. His character truly satisfies the heart of the audience. For his iconic role as Billy Costigan, he was nominated for his fifth Golden Globe Award and his fifth and sixth Screen Actors Guild nods.

Don’t Look Up (2021)

Director: Adam McKay

Writer: Adam McKay

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Rob Morgan, Jonah Hill, Mark Rylance, Tyler Perry, Timothée Chalamet, Ron Perlman, Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi, Cate Blanchett, and Meryl Streep

When you work on a project with prominent actors, the movie will already be a bit. Still, at the same time, there are numerous challenges that the film needs to face. In the case of fo Adam McKay, he has perfectly balanced the roles of actors and managed to deliver a blockbuster in the industry.

Leonardo plays the role of Dr. Randall Mindy, an astronomy professor who finds information on a planet-killing comet. He tries to warn the world about the comet, but the whole world ignores him. DiCaprio has perfectly displayed his role as a professor and gives the audience some furious moments.

The movie had some of the best actors from around the globe. It was hard to cooperate and balance their roles. Still, Adam McKay gives a glimpse into the world of how capable he is, and Leonardo helps add more depth to the sci-fi movie.

Titanic (1997)

Director: James Cameron

Writer: James Cameron

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Billy Zane, Kathy Bates, Gloria Stuart, Frances Fisher. 

James Cameron is known for making some of the biggest hits in cinemas. Avatar became the first highest-grossing movie ever made, and when you look at the list, you’ll find Titanic in the third number. Cameron is set to release Avatar: The Way of Water in December. Maybe it’ll be added to the top of the list again.

After December 19, 1997, Leonardo became the most famous actor worldwide. The movie is a mark of history that can never be removed. To add some mesmerizing moments in history, Leo has perfectly displayed his character as Jack Dawson, which tore the audience.

It will be remembered as one of the most remarkable movies ever directed by James Cameron and played by Leonardo DiCaprio. His romantic chemistry with Kate Winslet is also recorded in the history book. The movie was simply marvelous, and the act of Leo was indeed a masterpiece.

He didn’t win the Oscar as Jack Dawson. Still, he earned his second nomination for a Golden Globe Award and his second nomination for a Screen Actors Guild Award.

What was Leonardo DiCaprio’s biggest hit?

Leonardo has played roles in some blockbuster movies. Still, when we look at the chart of highest-grossing films, we’ll find Titanic in the third rank. DiCaprio has adopted the role of Jack, and his performance is considered one of the most iconic of all time.

The performance that Leonardo put on Jack was genuinely inspiring. It almost seemed like history got repeated once again with no mistakes.

What was Leonardo DiCaprio’s most challenging role?

The most demanding role that Leonardo DiCaprio had to play was in the movie “The Revenant.” “It was the most difficult film I think we have ever done.” He had to go through some extreme climates, and according to Director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, the movie’s environment was 30-below temperatures.

The director said, “Conditions were against us all the time.” He even stated why the old was a big challenge for him; “I’m a tropical man from Mexico City.”
