What's wrong with the prequels?

I loved them first time watching until i grew a bit older and was introduced to the countless reviews pointing out flaws and now theyre just films ill watch from time to time, i was a kid when the TPM was out (About 10 or 11) so yeah, i was probably his target audience to enjoy it.

I had no massive problem with TPM for some reason other than the standard Jar-Jar, number two wasnt too bad minus i hate the attempt at a love story, and then number three, something about it put me off massively but even as a kid i had some "Eh really?" moments, my mum also commented on how the first half of the film was like watching some cartoon movie trying too hard, and the "No!" just killed it.

I find if you're a standard film viewer or fan you'll enjoy them, if you look too much into it or have an extensive knowledge of the EU and a critic, you'll probably disect them until you have nothing left to enjoy.
Why do they call you Bodom? Is it like the drum beat, Bodom-Chh?

I actually prefer the Prequels over the Originals. Prequels has more Jedi action, which I like.

Plus in the Pre I adore each episode. In the originals, I only like 5 and 6. I really dislike 4.

In your (entitled) opinion, perhaps.

Alderaan IS seen (however briefly) before it's destroyed; at the end of Episode III.

1) Star Wars world is dirty and gritty in the originals. In the prequels it's all sterile CG environments.

2) No Han Solo type character.

3) No memorable lietmotif. In the originals, you could tell who was on screen and what was happening just by the soundtrack. You could tell when the camera was pointed at Luke when he was swinging his lightsaber, or the exact moment that Vader dies, just by listening to the music.
