I am a more recent advocate of the star wars films, but on the whole I liked them. But it was in my marriage contract that I had to at least be able to sit through a SW movie without falling asleep - so at least that worked out. My wife was the one who increased my interest in SW.

The story could have been told without the prequels.

Marriage contract? Hmm....


The story could have been told without the prequels.

How so? The original trilogy dealt with Luke and Leia and them telling their stories, and the prequels dealt with Obi Wan and Anakin, dealing mainly with Anakin's story and how Luke and Leia came about. Obi Wan bridges the gap between the originals and the newer ones.

I agree, they don't totally mesh (Lucas didn't watch the original trilogy before writing the prequels obviously :rolleyes:) but I'm not sure where you 're coming from there Trailbreaker.

speaking of the 7th movie, I hate Anakin Skywalker and I look forward to no movie where he is the hero.

Okay fine, maybe they were necessary, the only thing I liked from the prequels was General Grievous.:cool:

Agreed, Anakin was incredibly overrated. I mean seriously: "If you are not with me, then you are my enemy!:mad:" WTF?!!

And don't even get me started on the part where Vader says "NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

A scene from the 1997 Special Edition-versions that was then deleted for the 2004 DVD-release (thank God). What were they thinking?! I know George Lucas might have questionable taste when it comes to certain things but he can't be this crazy can he?

To break it down even further: Love the Original trilogy, resent the Special Editions, hate everything afterwards, i.e. Episodes I to III and Clone Wars.

The original trilogy is one of the best things that had happened to cinema. The second is fine, with a great ending.

Original trilogy great, prequels.....not so great! It's funny how the princess never aged one bit through the timeline, and then all of a sudden, Anakin is a teenager...maybe early twenties. Given all the CGI used in these prequels, aging the characters properly should have been first on the list!


...Then there's the technology. Everything in the prequels seemed to have better tech than the originals. Big mistake!!! Granted it was somewhat of a golden age before the wars, and Lucas wanted to show off..........Why not remake the originals with new ideas, and tech instead of adding a hundred storm troopers, and thx sound................How many times can they re-re-re-re-re-release the same movies :rolleyes:

.......JarJar Binks :rolleyes:
