    I agree by far. Jar Jar by himself was enough to ruin the newer trilogy, but there were a ton of other problems with it too.

    No contest. Originals all the way. A little hokey in parts, sure, but the characters were so much more likable, the on-screen chemistry so much better, the story so much more fluid and enjoyable, the acting/directing also usually leagues better. The only thing the prequels have going for them really is cleaner visuals and better choreography. but Ryan Wieber and Michael Scott do better choreography than Lucas does.

    revenge of the sith is the better of the prequels but pales in comparison with the brilliance of the originals

    Let's just be thankful that there were only two trilogies. Lucas originally planned 9 episodes.

    Both were fairly poorly written, badly acted and cheesy. Jar Jar was just as good/bad as Chewbacca. It's simply that one had revolutionary effects whereas the other did not. :biggrin1:

    The Empire Strikes Back is the best episode of them all, bar none.

    Three guesses which one wasn't directed by George the megalomaniac Lucas...

    I voted originals, but I did think the prequels got better and better. The first one kinda sucked balls (but again then it was Star Wars, so in a sense it was still watchable), next one got a little better (but especially the whole Padme/Anakin deal was just embarrasing) and the last one I actually think was pretty good. It was much 'darker', especially compared to the first one.

    the orignials were best. Pecker you are right. Lucus planned on nine movies. I belive he is working on them now. Something was posted awhile back. The working title are Fallen Hero and Dark Side

    I'm afraid I voted for "don't care". I'm not really into Sci-Fi

    The originals were the best.

    The newest series were a sad statement on an aging producer who had too many toys to play with.

    The originals were leaps ahead of their time. The newest series were full of the latest technology with very little to recommend them on character development or plot.

    Case and point... Jar Jar Binks!

    Lucas sold out the fans and the franchise with the prequels. Not to mention that he basically lied to the fans. What happened to episodes 7 through 9?

    And do not even get me started on that floppy eared, rasta wannabe Jar Jar Binks. What the hell was he thinking? OH YEAH!! Screw the fans.
