Re: Do You Hate The Star Wars Prequels?

Well, as a kid:

I thought The Phantom Menace was the greatest thing in the world, all due to Darth Maul. DAT LIGHTSABER.
I thought Attack of The Clones was a boring piece of shit. Not in those words, but you get my drift.
I enjoyed the fuck out of Revenge of The Sith.

My opinions haven't changed, except for The Phantom Menace. But still, DAT LIGHTSABER.

The prequels accomplished what they set out to accomplish - tell the backstory, make millions, and give a refreshed look at the series. However, the character of Jar Jar Binks, and the overuse of CGI, dampened and diminished just how great these could have been.

This. They were never meant to be as good the original trilogy (somehting which was so good I think I stayed up at night to watch them on Spike).

But Revenge of the Sith was just an entertaining movie that was epic.

Re: Do You Hate The Star Wars Prequels?

The Phantom Menace: Not my favorite in the Star Wars saga, but I did like Darth Maul, the podrace and the final battle. Even though Liam Neeson dies, which should be a sin.

Attack of the Clones: Only one of the prequels that I can say I hated. Out of the six films this is rated at the bottom in my list. And won't move anytime soon. Just couldn't get into it.

Revenge of the Sith: My favorite out of the three. Ended up seeing this premiere night, as well as a few other times. This is one of the movies that I really geeked out with. Plus, Anakin's infamous "I hate you" line always makes me laugh.

Absolutely. Fuck those movies so hard. Shame I missed the poll.

Darth Maul was literally the only good thing to come from the trilogy, and Boba Fett still rapes him.

Phantom Menace is no where near as bad as I remember it. Podrace is great, Watto is a pretty great character and the final battle is awesome. Not to mention the pure badassness of Maul.

Attack of the Clones is without a doubt the weakest of all 6 films. Nothing really happens over the course of the film and is easily skippable.

Revenge of the Sith is very good but has its problems. I love the scene with Anakin in the Jedi Temple room before he goes back to help Palpatine, its the moment the whole series had been leading up to and was handled really well. Saying that there are a lot of things I hate: Vader screaming at the end, the sudden evilness and suspision of Palpatine that was never really explained, the stuff about the Rebellion being cut and not enough Grevious

Overall 2 of 3 are good to great but they are no where near the level of the originals.

Nope.

Boba Fett overrating perplexes me. Guy was legit in the movies for about 10 minutes total before becoming the Sarlacc Pit's next meal. Darth Maul at least had a prime battle and a look that will be burned into your mind. Now he was a bad ass.

Hell, Jango Fett did more than Boba Fett.

Re: Do You Hate The Star Wars Prequels?

The first two were bad, but weren't terrible. However, my dad and I got walk in front and center opening day seats for Episode 3, and he fell asleep during it. Personally, I thought that was the worst of all the Star Wars movies.

Lots of good (full length) videos that dont suck (including wrestling) @ www.dailymotion.com/AntiFlag607, check it out.

Same here. I couldn't stop going to the cinema to watch this movie... I wouldn't say I hate them, I have things I love about the films, and also things I hate about them. But I'll still watch them.

Fuck, they have Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan Vs. Darth Maul - that right there is pretty fucking epic. Then you have the Podraces. Cripple Yoda fighting Count Dooku(played by the amazing Christopher Lee), General Grevious, the awesome battle at the end of AotC etc..

The only things I hate are the way Anakin turns into Darth Vader, just seems like an angry teenager. JAR-JAR, pretty obvious really. Mace Windu dieing, like a retard. The pointless CGI.

But at least there weren't any fucking Ewoks!
