    George Lucas lives about a mile from me. About 25 years ago I got the job of moving all the Lucasfilm movie props into a warehouse. We all took selfies with Jabba the Hut, and wore the real Darth Vader helmet.

    There were actually three scimitars made for the scene with Indy. Two were steel, and were so heavy that even a big guy could not wave it very convincingly. So the third was made out of aluminum, and that is the one in the scene.

    Some of these can be explained fairly easily, the star wars one is about the force becoming something of a myth in the 20- odd years since the fall of the Jedi and the rise of the Empire. Also the Dark Knight rises scene with Daggett is purposefully showing how money corrupts, you have this weedy guy who is worth millions and he believes because of this he is invincible as money is all that matters in his world, then you get the Chaos factor of Bane who cannot be bribed or reasoned with, hence his weakened demeanor when he realizes he is screwed.

    Finally Bill Paxton is no longer the only character to have been killed by all three, Lance Henrikson now also holds that title

    #1 Video, at 1:32: Vader seems to be huffing in dismay with the thought of having to use the Force against such an idiot.
