What’s More awesome? Star Wars Episodes IV A New Hope, V The Empire Strikes Back, VI Return of the Jedi or Star Wars Episodes I The Phantom Menace, II The Attack of the Clones, III Revenge of the Sith? You Decide!
Until then I’ll give My Opinion: All Six movies are totally AWESOME!!
My Reasoning: I watched Episode I: The Phantom Menace first. So in my eye this was the start of the movies. I was too young to quite comprehend how someone could make the last three before the first three. Then I was blessed with the experience of being able to watch the last three films. They were very well done and showed honor and courage among comrades who fought for freedom.
Then Episode II: The Attack of the Clones came out. Again at the time I was young enough that the romantic elements were lost on me and I thought that there could not be a more awesome movie. Now however, I find Episode II a little dry. Possibly my least favorite of the films but definitely necessary and very enjoyable. I also like how Yoda suddenly became a computer generated character who was actually able to move and jump vs a puppet.
Finally Episode III: Revenge of the Sith was released. I think that this was a well done film in how it connected the series. I probably wouldn’t have enjoyed it as much had I not seen the Originals. I kept hoping that Anakin wouldn’t become Darth Vader even though I knew that he would. I almost believed that he had a chance of beating the Dark Side of the Force. In my opinion that is fine movie making when you can lead someone to believe that their hero actually has a chance even when you know they are doomed to fail.
A lot of fans think that George Lucas ruined the Prequels. I would disagree. I think that if the creator creates a franchise he has the right to do what he wants with it. He can create it and shape it in any way he likes. I might not like the outcome but I am consoled to know that the creator intended it that way. As for the recent Disney buy-out of Lucasfilm… Well that’s another post. Let’s just say that now that I am old enough not think whatever I am allowed to watch is awesome, they better not mess these next films up. Here I sympathize with the Original fans.
And so In Conclusion: Prequels vs Originals: Originals would win. Only because Episode II scored an eight out of ten. All the other films scored tens.
That’s what I think, what about you? Am I right? Or am I wrong? You decide!
