    A New Hope was the shortest, Attack of the Clones was the longest.

    The prequels echoed scenes from the original trilogy so many times it was painful to watch. I knew they were guilty of doing that, but to see it all side by side...oof.

    I lost all hope when The Phantom Menace's ending was a direct lift from A New Hope. I knew it was a bad movie long before that point, but that was the moment that sealed the deal for me. Fucker was paying homage to his own damn movies.

    Never saw the first three episodes, and don't really have a desire to.

    Considering the first movie was ripped off from Hidden Fortress and Dam Busters, it's not surprising.

    To be entirely fair, when a director is making an homage to older movies, you really shouldn't expect them to be inspired by older movies.

    You've seriously never seen the prequels? I thought that the HitW prequels was a tentative thing, but fuck, now we gots to do them.

    Nope. Everyone I talked to told me it ruins the franchise more than it helps it, and before something like HitWB there was never any motivation to watch bad movies.

    I do like the idea of HitWB making it worthwhile to finally watch some of these movies I've been putting off for years.

    I like how you answered twice for whiskeyguy and drunk whiskeyguy.

    And it can't be tentative, NeonTaster made a nice picture and everything.

    That's fanboy hyperbole, and I think that was huge factor in his decision to just wash his hands of the franchise. I can still watch the OT just fine, and blissfully ignore the prequels. Phantom Menace's only real crime is being boring, lots of space politics and no real central villain. Attack is utter dogshit, and somewhere around the third act Revenge turns into a decent Star Wars movie. They suffer from the same problem every other Prequel does, you already know how the story ends, so the journey becomes meaningless. I've read countless Star Wars books, played lots of the games etc, and I've come to the conclusion that the only interesting thing about Star Wars was Luke's story. If I want space politics I'll watch Star Trek, which actually has an intelligent discussion about it.
