"He told me you killed him"
A couple of nights ago, my wife and I were watching our "Revenge of the Sith" DVD, which includes a short feature about the fall and redemption of Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader. Unlike my wife, I am old enough to have seen "The Empire Strikes Back" during its original theatrical release and remember how stunning it was to learn that Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker's father. (Not to mention that the film ended without the issue being resolved.)
So my question to you, dear readers, is how does that revelation stack up to other film surprises? Was it more or less shocking than learning Bruce Willis was really dead? Or that Kevin Costner was a Russian Spy? Or that she was a man? I anxiously await your responses.
