Some of you just plain take movies too seriously, instead of enjoying them for what they are, light entertainment. This especially goes for SW. Always I see this in SW threads, "the OT was amazing, the Prequels sucked." Jesus Christ, people. The dialogue was just as bad in the OT as in the prequels ie "traveling through hyperspace ain't like dusting crops, boy". The ewoks were no more a brilliant concept than Jar-Jar (who was put in for the kids, and the kids actually liked him even if the voice was annoying). The lightsaber battles were infinitely better in the prequels, and the blaster fights were about the same. There was no Harrison Ford in the prequels, and Jedi characters are always going to be largely dry and tasteless. Then again, there was no brother and sister kissing each other in the prequels either. Honestly, you tolerated all the shortcomings in the OT that film critics would point out and forgave them, but when they repeated it in the prequels, THEN you were bitching about it. Lucas is a lousy director and writer, but he was consistent through all six movies. Why are so many of you so unable to see that? With action films, you really need to leave the critic thing at home. This ain't Shakespeare on the stage.
