"Lettres à un ami allemand" by Albert Camus

The 4 letters addressed to the nazi, in the first complete Italian edition with a prologue by the author.

How Camus planned the reconstruction of the identity of Europe after the 3rd Reich, also pinpointed that however he didn´t search any sense in life the unique sense must be men (human dignity, a north for heroism,
the reserve of the justice as a principle anove discussion, even nationalities)

As all are readers and adults, I wish to state that I am not pretending to say my reading is the unique, valid, or the ultimate academic one.

Cela ne veut rien dire? Non, Ça nous dit beaucoup! Bienvenues les décodifications des livres qui s´y donnent pour partager l´heritage de la littérature, surtout quand elle parle de l´histoire de la civilisation et ses héros.

On this arc the Zygerians are a reminiscense of Hobbe´s Leviatan : Man is wolf of man
they are a bit disgusting, enough strong to harm people. Hope Obi Wan could reivindicate for
his second fight against that wolf guy.

These wolf people are predators, but not in the mean of hunters, they predate the rights of their slaves.

Togruta Jedi are witnessing the fall of their planet, so teh watchers could suppose the Republic is loosing capacity to protect other world from separatists (on these episodes the faction which support slavery).

a few minutes ago I have finished reading Le mythe de Sisyphe by Albert Camus
an essay about human condition reduced at absurd, the litterary creation as a problematic task,
where the author wants to renounce expressily to hope and avoid to search a sens for life.

He also reviewed authors like Malraux, Dostoievsky, the classic greeks, etc.

The action was well directed on episode 11, better secuence of fighting
but Obi Wan could have delivered more strikes and not stand like a punching bag.

Dooku´s head is still extremely conic kinda Ki adi mundi´s
and Yoda´s head is very oblique, the original esb rotj puppet had a better proportion for
the traits of his face.

That Ninja Turtle of Krell deserved death, cause clones proved major dignity than him.

Only some difficulty in the hunt for Krell as he fought like Grievous...the clones didn´t use grenades or concussion missils against turtle jedi. A bit naif he deflected 20 blasters at same time, while Ki Adi Mundi was eliminated fast by his troops on rots.

Agree and some ewoks on Endor, were taller than jawas, specially in the scene when they saw C 3po for the first time and captured Han Luke, Chewie and R2 D2.

Seems this tsc is the definitive version, unless a sculptor want to make Chirpa with ball jointing knees and articulated ankles (like tvc Wicket)

episode 8 season4: the centipede tanks were an innovative device for the show

the landscape looks more like Felucia, but plants and trees have artificial lights?

Krell is a disgusting guy, so arrogant he can´t recognise merit in his soldiers.

For me Krell must be killed by Rex and his troops, and the council or senate must absolbe them.

episode 7 season 4: all watchers wanted to see more of Anakin
Krell is arrogant, he contradicts the Jedi way.
More, he is presented as a bad strategist cause led the clones to hold a difficult position in battle.

I just finished reading L´envers et l´endroit  by Albert Camus.

A book which expresses his feelings about nature, Europe, loneliness, misery in the humain being and hope trhought contemplation of religious art and nature.

I agree Slave Leia head improved since tlc version
I regret Hoth Luke doesn´t have removable hat

What I see about the navy commander is that he shows more straight legs
and the torso is corrected in a more solid appearnce than the tac version.

Finally watched the episode 4th

Nice duel betwwen Anakin and Dooku, but not the best one. (Dooku cheated with his magna guards and the scenery was a bit dark)

The capture of Grievous was something unexpected, but less shoking than that Vader capture before anh on the
game TFU 2, which most OT fans do not accept all as cannon. (Due to the order of some events)

I think they shouldn´t have killed Tarpals, cause Jar Jar will lack from support in newest episodes or seasons.

BTW, watchable.  :)

I think the eventual Darth Plagueis release will move sculptors to release young Palpatine sith apprentice action figure the sooner as possible.

Is like Bastilla case, she came when Revan and Malak already existes in plastic.

Nice duel on Shadows warrior preview, but only something that could have been avoided

Dooku give his back as a direct target in two risky maneauvers before Anakin.

He could has been slashed or thrusted by a saber blade for initiating the fights with that moves.

But it´s ok: the dark side controls everything, even the coreography.
