i am an enormous star wars fan, and it pisses me off how much people rip on the new films because the reality is that the originals werent exactly oscar winners either. There was a lot of really stupid stuff in all 6 movies

Everyone will always say " the older ones where better" or the "original was better"

What they really mean is "where the **** is han solo"

My mother is a woman, and my father is a little too old school for Star Wars, so I was not raised with the epicness as part of my childhood.   
   
The first Star Wars movie I saw was episode 1: The Phantom Menace. At the time, I was 7 or 8 years old. I enjoyed the 			****		 out of it, being the little kid I was, and Jar Jar Binks was hilarious. Anakin Skywalker was the coolest kid ever, and I thought myself a great Star Wars Fan.   
   
I grew a bit older and watched Episode 2: Attack of the Clones. I enjoyed it even more, Yoda was hilarious and awesome, and there was cool clones that fought in a cool war.    
Then I found the original trilogy at a flea market, and I bought them all and watched them.   
   
My entire world trembled and fell apart as all meaning left it: I had lived this long without this epicness before my eyes? I watched them again and again, and finally Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith came out. I really enjoyed that as well.   
   
Now I am 20 years old, Star Wars holds a special place in my heart, and even though hardcore self-proclaimed Star Wars fans bash and hate the three new movies, I can not stop loving them, for they were part of my childhood and they were my introduction to the Star Wars Universe.   
   
I love the original trilogy and I love the new trilogy and I love that I am able to love them all.   
   
TL;DR: I like the new trilogy, it's pretty good, although it has some flaws, but they can easily be ignored.

hardcore Star Wars fans do not hate the prequels. The only reason you would ever hate the prequels is if you seriously don't know **** about Star Wars, or get it's appeal. It's the same concept with Metroid: Other M. The only people who hate it are the people who claim to be fans. but are, in fact, not.

episode 1 is meh, episode, 2 is okay, episode 3 is actually really good.
the prequels arent bad, they do good in telling the story of the fall of the jedi and the origins of the empire-. just my opinion tho.

also yoda is a beast when fighting

Some of the videogames that use prequel lore are really good so i don't hate them.
But that's the only reason I don't hate them
User avatar #20 to #7 - runelh (10/20/2012) [-]
All the hate comes from the old fans who had their expections way to high when they watched them...

How I see it (The originals are still better) There was actually a lot more story in the prequals (Not saying better) and you dug more into the universe of Star Wars.

so inb4 old fans "HERR DERR, HOW CAN A LITTLE 12 YEAR OLD FAGGOT BOY SAY THAT THE STORY WAS BETTER BLAH BLAH" Which I am not.

I really like episode 3 too, but come on episode 2 is the worst, 1 is much better in my opinion. I just feel that nothing relevant happens in episode 2 and anakin is such a whiny little bitch. It's the one movie where I can never remember what happens in it until I see it again.
User avatar #13 to #11 - vegardwd (10/20/2012) [-]
personally i think ep 1 is a bit boring, and there is much more action in ep 2.
just my opinion, and i respect yours

The only thing that annoys me more than this post is the fact I can only thumb it down once. Yes Jar Jar is kind of dumb and annoying but he was designed to bring in a younger audience, he's not in every scene, get over it. The pod race was awesome, I have no idea what you're talking about, as someone who was old enough to see it in theaters I can tell you it looked amazing on the big screen. You can get background on Maul from the expanded universe, he's supposed to be mysterious, if they knew exactly who he was he wouldn't be a phantom menace. I'll give you Padme, she was annoying. And finally, Yoda fighting was awesome, there's nothing cooler than when the old guy kicks serious ass. I don't know what happened to make some star wars fans so jaded but whatever it is they need to shut up so the rest of us can enjoy ourselves. Sorry for the long comment.

The problem with the prequels is that it was a cgi'd piece of **** which was supposed to be targeted at everyone for mass profits, We should of seen more story and less action scenes, Yoda should of never fought with a lightsaber or in battles. Yoda in the original trilogies was seen as kind of like a sage of the jedi order and he said "War does not make one great" and he never taught Luke how to fight with a lightsaber. I could go on and on but I felt nothing watching the prequels other than anger for ruin the original trilogy with a horrible back story.

Plenty of story? half of the story is boring political dialogue that no kid watching would understand and the other is a war between clones and droids with no emotional loss. Anakin, our main character, was a whiny little prick that we couldn't relate to. Palpatine our main antagonist, should of been found out long before he sprung his trap. The Jedi talked about how the dark side clouded him and yet they did nothing but send the one person who was seemed to be the most emotionally unstable and the most loyal to him spy on him.

What lead to the war? Palpatine twisting political strings. It was a pretty important bit of lead up to 4-6.   
They sent Ani because he was close to Palpatine and as such could keep a closer eye on him. Plus they wanted to test his loyalty to the order.   
I'll give you the bits about Ani being a whiner and Palpatine not being found out sooner though.

Also why didn't Obi Wan and Yoda reveal to the dumbass senate the video tapes of what really happened to the jedi and of Palpatine scheming with Ani?
User avatar #184 to #154 - tonyzepol (10/21/2012) [-]
I'm not saying him pulling political strings wasn't important, I'm saying that every kid watching that had no ******* clue what he was talking about and took a quick cat nap during those scenes (which is why they were so short). Why would they send Ani when after he takes over we see Yoda and Obi Wan watching a camera of him telling Ani how he's a good apprentice and **** . They just had to watch the cameras or have someone who they new was emotionally stable at the time to spy on him. I didn't think his loyalty needed to be tested at this point in the film Obi Wan held him in such high regard and with Palpatine ordering Ani on the council it was obvious Palpatine had ideas to use him by giving him what he always wanted.

My thinking exactly. It's largely a bandwagon thing. Not saying there aren't people who legitimately dislike it but I've come across people who put down the prequels then later admit to never having seen them. :/

All accurate. But it must be pointed out that even though Padme was whiny and annoying, Natalie Portman is a golden idol finely crafted by a loving goddess of love, which really only adds to your point.
User avatar #49 to #39 - Mr Ronok (10/21/2012) [-]
Natalie Portman in a very good actress, I honestly think the writers just had no idea how to write a love story.

...I really enjoyed the prequels.   
   
They didn't have the charm or consistency of the originals, but I was thoroughly entertained by all of them, especially by the modernised saber duels. Vader vs. Obi is still one of my favourite action scenes of all time.   
   
But of course, my opinion is wrong and you will all hate me. Oh well.

I should point out that Vader. vs Obi refers to the Ep 3 duel and not the duel between the old men with rickets in Ep 4.

#120 to #110 - baconrainbow (10/21/2012) [-]
Because you just can't add new content to something that people grew up with, they will never be amazed as much by it, which is usually why its the 30+ year old people saying that they hate it, because they remember watching the originals in the theaters, and the young pre-teens that absolutely loved it. And most of the young ones that hate it, hate the original as well, if not more so.
User avatar #14 - KellyisAwesome (10/20/2012) [-]
The only two things that I REALLY hate about the prequels is ofcourse Jar Jar and how ******* whiny Anakin is.
Otherwise I like them though, Darth Maul is boss and I really get the feels when Padme say "Anakin, you're breaking my heart' and Obi Wans "You were my brother!"

oh the feels!
User avatar #55 - jittersfj (10/21/2012) [-]
Sorry. Am I the only one who refuses to separate the Star Wars movies between the two trilogies? How about we look at them as a 6 movie saga? All together, they were ******* sick. SO everybody just stfu and enjoy some ******* star wars
