Ok so my new found girl friend, be jealous all yee who game (though I haven't played SWTOR for like a week, so not too jealous), has never seen any of the star wars movies. A sin I know. So now she will either join us or die! The dilemma is, what order should I introduce her to the movies. Best first, chronologically by story or by release, in order of quality?

Question: What order should you introduce the movies to some one who has never seen them?

New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi.

Don't show the prequels.

Well eventually, but only if she is really into them and you give her fair warning that only 30mins of each prequel will be good. Obi-wan's duel with maul, the actual wars part with clone wars, and the last 30 mins of Sith.

it's not even really 3D... since it is only 2D images at slightly different distances.. the "third dimension" is hollow as nothing actually exists in it... it's more like 2.5D :P

Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy other people to shoot at.

Yeah but you have to remember she isn't a nerd and doesn't have a love for all thing star wars ingrained into her core. So I hesitate to begin with New Hope because of the ****** quality of the movie, I don't want to turn her off the series just because of the budget. Would enticing her with the flashy newer movies be a better long term plan for her over all descent into nerdom?

well... the prequels would make her like it. no matter what. escpecially episode 3 is a bit of a chick flick. but the "i am your father!" part can only be a surprise if she havent seen the prequels.

Start with the prequels. Girls dig Anakin and Natalie Portman. Plus the "romance" between them tends to hook girls more than the "I am your father" stuff. It all depends on what kind of girl she is really. You have said she is not a nerd, so starting with the OT will just turn her off to SW.

Just remember some people won't like it no matter how much you try.
