Nathalie Q. Assignment 2 part 1

For this project I will be focusing on the war between Russia and Ukraine. Overall, a fair war would be between two countries mutually agreeing to battle. However, Russia would just be attacking while Ukraine goes on the defense. This article speaks about what the president of Ukraine feels about Vladimir Putin and his intentions behind this whole attack. Overall, Putin only moves with intentions to gain control over something that does not pertain to him. The desire for him to attack Ukraine to gain control is a dictatorship mindset many countries are moved past. Ukraine simply serves their people, and this attempt to trap them under a dictatorship is a simple act of control. The president of Ukraine explains how this is nothing but a game to Putin as he does not part take in the battles and simply watches as his troops risk their lives. He gives examples of all the Russian solders bodies being abandoned and Putin showing no compassion to even identify and take these corps out to bury etc. Through this editorial project, I am choosing to illustrate the mindset Putin holds with this war, in hopes that it illustrates his abuse of power and carelessness to the people overall.

Star Wars, Episode 3 revolves around a passionate love gone wrong. Anakin Skywalker has built up insecurities on what he feels others in the Jedi council believe him to be and grows more and more anger as they do not grant him a Jedi. Aside from his anger towards the councils decision, he holds many hurt feelings from finding out about the kidnap and death of his mother. After many visions in his dreams, he decides finding his mother but it was too late to save her. After both of these failures, he fears deeply to lose the love of his life, Padme Amidala, while she gives birth. As he continues to have visions of Padme in pain while giving birth, he is determined to growing more power to save her from death. Being in an emotional, vulnerable state, Palpatine (secretly Darth Sidious at the time) takes advantage to telling Anakin there is a way to save Padme, through the dark side of power. In the end, he joins the dark side, and Padme ultimately does not make it through childbirth. Anakin becomes Darth Vader, and the light side of the force and Jedi go into hiding, while Darth Vader and Sidious begin taking over the galaxy.

This movie is very detail and story oriented and thus would appeal more towards an audience of teenagers and older. These are based on books so there is a lot of information to keep up with chronologically. A Sci-fi fan audience would enjoy the Star Wars trilogies overall.
