So I stumbled upon this on youtube and I have to say, it is an intriguing video. Love or hate the current PT we current have this actually sounds interesting. And I fully agree about the Yoda suggestion.

Entertainment is subjective, some like it some don't. I liked the PT, don't understand why people insist on trying to shove their own views on what movies are good and which are bad.

I liked the Prequels. They had problems, but it didn't change my view of Star Wars. The PT told a story, a story that I loved. Some people didn't like them, but I did. In the end, we decide what we like. We shouldn't let other people tell us what to like and what not to like.

What if Anakin was a banana and light sabers were giant shaved bears and the force was chewing gum... what if that.

I liked the video, it was neat.

The prequels were cinematic garbage. Let's all just hope the new trilogy is better.

Visually, the PT was beautiful.


They really did an impressive job with the dualing scenes, like I seriously doubt as futuristic as SW was they would be moving as slow as Ben Kenobi did in Ep. 4 regardless if he was stalling or what.


Story-wise, Ep. 3 really shined but the other two were a mess.

I agree. I thoroughly enjoyed the prequels.

No, visually it was mediocre. Because they insisted on green screening the entire film a lot of things really step in to the uncanny valley, and only get worse over time due to the nature of using that kind of special effect. Believe it or not, your depth perception still comes in to play when watching a film. The space scenes and pod racing scene were impressive, but the rest of it was not.

The dueling scenes in the original trilogy were more accurate. High octane backflippy combat is what film critics refer to as 'shlock'. It only gets worse in the prequel trilogy, until we have the ultimate shlock-fest in Episode 3.

Your forgetting to add "my opinion" somewhere in there.

Dueling scenes in the OT are not accurate, maybe accurate for today's world. But in a universe like SW where the two combatants are skilled Force-Users and can do all types of attacks with the force. It made no sense for them to be moving so slow.
