It's not as far as I know. The only problem is that it's being made by Disney...

Darth Vader wasn't evil, he was corrupted.

No, but the helmet is a symbol of his servitude to the evil one, emperor palpatine.

Yeah I'd believe that if I just watched the original trilogy, but the prequels ruined that notion by having him slaughter an entire camp of sand people and murder hundreds of children.

I watched the movies throughout the last couple of days.

I can't get over Anakin's fall into the dark side, and how only his son could bring him back... I just... I just need a few minutes.....

Did you notice his lightsaber changing from blue to red during his fight with Obiwan? That was kinda neat.
#47 to #6 - darthblam (08/17/2013) [-]
Lightsabers are not affected by the wielders side of the Force.

Lightsaber color is based on the kind of crystal that is put in the hilt, it does not change.
User avatar #10 to #6 - sparkofinsanity (08/17/2013) [-]
Really? I just watched it and his lightsaber stayed blue the whole time
#14 to #6 - bobbysilk (08/17/2013) [-]
Anakin's lightsaber is the same one that Luke gets, which is blue.
User avatar #96 to #6 - tkfourtwoone (08/17/2013) [-]
The only thing about Anakin's lightsaber that changes, ONCE, is the sound of it activating.

Listen to it carefully when he reaches the younglings during his massacre on the Jedu Temple, when he ignites it you can hear the distinct Sith "hisss" lightsaber sound, compared to the "ker-snap!" of the normal Jedi ones.

Rather subtle detail, but really adds to the dread of the scene.

I have never noticed that!!!
User avatar #50 to #7 - punnyjunky ONLINE (08/17/2013) [-]
You didn't notice because it didn't happen. I was fooled into rewatching their battle and at no point does it turn red.
#12 to #6 - anon (08/17/2013) [-]
Whu what? When was this? I NEVER Noticed that.
User avatar #265 to #6 - thekeeperofthumbs ONLINE (08/17/2013) [-]
Too bad that never happened
Lightsaber colour is determined by focusing crystal, not wielder alignment
User avatar #68 to #6 - skaffanl (08/17/2013) [-]
My dad kept telling me that before Anakin goes back to confront Mace Windu and Palpatine you can hear the respirator of Darth Vader. When Anakin is looking out of the window in the Jedi Temple or something. I never heard this, can anyone confirm whether or not this true because I think my dad is imagining things that aren't there. He is too big of a fan.

I want movies taking place way back in the past, before the rule of two, or perhaps at it's conception. Those stories are much darker, and the magnificent. Like, for ***** sake, can we see somebody with a Thought Bomb.

#27 to #23 - pariahlol (08/17/2013) [-]
Yeah, for example, like the cutscene in The Old Republic, where the Sith come out of that ship and **** **** up. Imagine movies with that kinda stuff in it. It would be a thousand times more epic.

**** turns into ******* Warhammer 40K when those bastards come along.

Its the perfect plotline for them to take in my opinion, Its got a great story, with a lot of action, a perfect re-inroduction to SW

I loved the KOTOR storyline. So so so much.

Darth Malak ain't got **** on Darth Revan. If it wasn't for the jedi boarding Revan's ship Malak would never have beaten him.

pf darth bane is nothing.

darth nihilus
darth vitiate
darth malgus

that are sobs. vitiate destroyed a planet with the force and consumed the lifeforce of it.
#20 to #19 - pariahlol (08/17/2013) [-]
**** yeah Darth Bane is the **** . Hell, any of the early sith lords are the **** .
User avatar #21 to #20 - naggerbatch (08/17/2013) [-]
Plagueis, Revan, Malak, Bane... why are there not movies about these badasses?
#25 to #21 - pariahlol (08/17/2013) [-]
Exactly. I mean **** , Revan has one of the tightest stories out there. Also, imagine a movie where instead of seeing these small 1v1 lightsaber battles, we get to see whole armies of sith and jedi clash on the battlefield. I think the amount of jizz on the theater floor would be record-breaking.
User avatar #29 to #25 - naggerbatch (08/17/2013) [-]
I would probably cry. I have high hopes for this upcoming movie though. ******* JJ Abrams is directing it. I don't know about you, but I thought that Star Trek was absolutely fantastic. But then again, the Star Wars movies have not been too amazing in the past. The movies are ok, the Universe is wonderful. Either way, I'm going to see it.
#31 to #29 - pariahlol (08/17/2013) [-]
Yeah, i've never been a fan of Star Trek as it has never felt believable or real, but the first one was good from what I saw. I hope he can do something great with Star Wars.

**** , now I need to go redownload The Old Republic.
User avatar #32 to #31 - naggerbatch (08/17/2013) [-]
You ever play Knights of the Old Republic?

One of the best Star Wars games out there in my opinion. It's older, but the story and gameplay are fantastic. KotOR 2 is meh, but still kind of fun to run around and be a really OP Jedi or Sith.
User avatar #71 to #32 - skaffanl (08/17/2013) [-]
I always enjoyed Kotor 2 more than 1 but I see more people enjoying 1 more. I just found the Sith in 2 are way more badass and I liked the plot twists plus having all Jedi is awesome.
User avatar #218 to #71 - greedtheavaricious (08/17/2013) [-]
Also, would it have been released with what we now have with restored content mod, it would be in the top 5 of the most amazing games worldwide.
#34 to #32 - pariahlol (08/17/2013) [-]
I played the demo for one of them awhile back but I never actually got the game for whatever reason. I've always wanted to go back, but it's just been too hard for me, I'm not too good with playing older games, I can barely get through Morrowind and Oblivion.
User avatar #35 to #34 - naggerbatch (08/17/2013) [-]
Understandable. Are you a console or PC gamer? I won't discriminate.
#36 to #35 - pariahlol (08/17/2013) [-]
Both, but due to a sub-par laptop for a PC, I am often forced to resort to the console.
User avatar #49 to #36 - asasqw (08/17/2013) [-]
KOTOR works well on a pc if turned down all the way. A quick hint for them is to infest in saber. Ignore force go for saber. Also You can miss 2 followers easily. First is the sith they tell you to kill on the jedi academy and the other is in the robot shop on the desert planet.
User avatar #37 to #36 - naggerbatch (08/17/2013) [-]
I'm the same way. I need to get a nicer PC, but no money. Oblivion on Xbox 360 is ******* hilarious though, due to the fact that you can literally glitch yourself to have like 5,000 of every stat, plus magicka, health, and stamina. One of the most broken games I've ever played, but the story is pretty decent. You should look into getting back into KotOR though if you enjoy Star Wars games! Once you get past the alright graphics, the gameplay and story are actually quite fantastic.
User avatar #244 to #37 - jacksipian (08/17/2013) [-]
is it free? or is it like a monthly subsciption?
#38 to #37 - pariahlol (08/17/2013) [-]
I'll have to do so. For now I'll be forced to settle for SWTOR though. Which isn't bad, as I thoroughly enjoy the Sith Sorcerer storyline.
User avatar #88 to #21 - ICEDgrunge (08/17/2013) [-]
Most of the fanbase of star wars think that anything outside of the 6 ******* movies, or maybe just the original trilogy, are ******** . They just don't want to accept the idea that maybe there has been and will be more important **** going on in the SW universe than Luke Skywalker and his daddy issues.
User avatar #58 to #20 - thekeeperofthumbs ONLINE (08/17/2013) [-]
Revan was, hands down, the best.
>Discovers Star Forge, uses it against Republic
>Knows not to use it too much or he'll be consumed by it
>Excellent strategist
>Malak was pretty much his bitch

am I the only one that wants movies of the old republic more than the known saga? I mean, watching all 6 to see how a teen's bitchyness nearly plunge the galaxy into a darkness isn't as entertaining as watching hundreds of jedi and sith fight it out, and where the sith aren't over powered untouchable beings, being able to be taken down by regular, though bad ass soldiers

User avatar #208 to #193 - akkere (08/17/2013) [-]
In all honesty, I think the Old Republic would be more feasible as an animated movie (e.g. like the Old Republic Trailers) than a live action one. Much of the combat you see in the trailers shows force-user combat capability on a level that you really can't get with live action unless you're willing to drop in a lot of money in special effects. A lot of money. And a lot of money in the salaries of the actors who are going to do those stunts.

Disney probably has that cash, but they don't have the executives willing to give it out.

I didn't like the Hulk
a big green hulking monster of indiscriminate destruction? nah, he takes orders from a guy who's been frozen

**** that
User avatar #143 to #139 - warrenzthehero (08/17/2013) [-]
The thing is, Hulk would have smashed regardless of what Cap said.
He just smiled because Cap agreed with him. They were on the same page.

Also, if you read the comics, the Hulk is actually very intelligent and has his own personality besides Banner.
User avatar #197 to #143 - fuzzyballs (08/17/2013) [-]
he stood there, he waited, and when he got the order, he smashed
indiscriminate destruction doesn't wait, it just smashes

now, I'm not a comicbook reader, so all I know about the Hulk is from a few movies, and 3 animated ones, and in all of them, he just gets angry or stressed and smashes **** , okay?
User avatar #141 to #139 - ApocalypseKing (08/17/2013) [-]
honestly Hulk was the only part of the movie that i thought could have been better
they should have let Edward Norton reprise the role...would have probably been a lot better
User avatar #194 to #141 - fuzzyballs (08/17/2013) [-]
he doesn't have the chin though
User avatar #177 to #139 - drainbramage (08/17/2013) [-]
He didn't really take orders from Captain America, it was just there as a comedy device, Hulk was told to smash because that's what he's famous for and he smashed, as if the Captain could of had him do anything else.

I think Kevin Smith made a good point with Disney and The Avengers. He said that by the time Disney bought Marvel, most of the pre-Avengers movies were out and had established each character and franchise, so all Disney had to do was release Avengers and get a ******** of money. Try and find the video if you can. I'd link it, but I can't remember what it was called.

I'm curious, FunnyJunk, on 2 things:
1. What did you think of the prequels? Good, meh, or bad?
2. Do you have faith in J.J. Abrams in directing a good star wars movie?
User avatar #44 to #40 - darthblam (08/17/2013) [-]
1. Meh, they could have been better.
2. Yes. Not only has he done some great **** in the past, he's a big time Starwars fan. And honestly.. when the original creator is done with something the FANS are the best people to continue it. Because sometimes the fans know what to do with the story better than the original creator.
User avatar #46 to #40 - whiteboitrollin (08/17/2013) [-]
1. Meh, in my opinion the only thing better than in the originals trilogy is the effects since technology had advanced.
2. Yes, hes made some badass stuff in the past
User avatar #56 to #40 - thekeeperofthumbs ONLINE (08/17/2013) [-]
1. The only improvement on the originals is the effects. However, Ep3 served its purpose (to conclude the saga in a way that keeps you hooked throughout even though you kinda already know how it ends) really well. Also, I have no idea what everyone's problem is with Jar Jar (please don't shoot me).
2. Yes, although Mara Jade had better feature
User avatar #63 to #40 - jacencaedus (08/17/2013) [-]
1. They could have been better, but I've always felt they haven't been given as much credit as they deserve, they did their jobs, Though episode 1 could have easily been left out in my opinion, they showed WHY Anakin went to the dark side, he felt that it was the only way to save his wife Turns out his vision was a self fulfilling prophecy, but we won't get into that

2. With how awesomely he pulled off Star Trek, I would be extremely surprised if he didn't make a good Star Wars movie
User avatar #65 to #40 - ivoryhammer (08/17/2013) [-]
The only prequel that's really bad is the first one, 2 was decent, if not cheesy, I really enjoyed 3.
User avatar #72 to #40 - PlagueDoctor (08/17/2013) [-]
1. Not as bad as everybody says they are.
2. Sadly, only time will tell
#60 to #40 - physicsdude (08/17/2013) [-]
1. Utter crap. The action and effects were great, don't get me wrong, but they ruined a lot of the story, which is what i loved most about the originals.
2. Well he can't do worse than George Lucas. I hope
#75 to #40 - nehger **User deleted account** (08/17/2013) [-]
1. What did you think of the prequels? Good, meh, or bad?
Meh. I really enjoyed them as a kid, but they take away much of the mystery. I really like episode III though

2. Do you have faith in J.J. Abrams in directing a good star wars movie?
Hell yeah. He already made a good Star Wars movie (it was called Star Trek). That and the writer is Michael Arndt, who wrote toy story 3, I've got a feeling this is going to be something special

GO JJ

User avatar #76 to #40 - dyllygaf (08/17/2013) [-]
I love the prequels, episode 1 is my favorite of the three. Qui-Gon Jin is my favorite Jedi ever and the lightsaber battle between him, Obi-Wan and Darth Maul at the end was absolutely glorious. I whole-heartedly believe that people say they hate the prequels so much because is "cool" to talk **** about Jar-Jar and all the nostalgia whores bitch about the CGI

I believe J.J. Abrams has the potential to make an amazing Star Wars movie, he already has a great list of movies he's produced including Star Trek, and according to his IMDB page he is going to be producing a Portal movie and a Half-Life movie. So all that tells me is that he really knows what he's doing when it comes to space and technology in movies

All in all, I love every Star Wars movie and I have high hopes for the new one
#220 - anon (08/17/2013) [-]

One of the main issues episodes 1, 2, and 3 had was a lack of challenges to overcome. They suffered in quality because Lucas had all the technology he needed to make the special effects awesome. Look at the character development in the original trilogy and then look at it in the newer movies. I'm just repeating what my films teacher told me... but it makes sense when you think about it.

If it was just some minor flaws that no one cares about, the prequels wouldn't be notorious disappointments amongst many Star Wars fans. I'm not saying you can't like them, but I can see why a lot of people thought they were bad. If you want me to actually list some of the flaws I will.
- Lightsabers out the ass. It seems like the movie can't go on for more than five minutes with out someone pulling out a lightsaber. It ruins the magic of it. It seemed like there was a lot of "special effect overload" in general in the movie.
-Many of the characters just make uncharacteristically dumb decisions, especially the supposedly wise Qui-Gon in the giant convoluted sequence on Tatooine. (He also doesn't seem morally opposed to using his jedi powers to try to scam someone out of money or influence a bet).
-The intense, emotionally-meaningful lightsaber duels from the originals are replaced with unnecessarily-long boring action sequences. Lightsaber duels are more about what's going on with the characters involved than shoving as much **** as possible onto the screen. And for some reason they had to have Yoda jumping up and down fighting with a lightsaber, which contrasts his character.
-Most of the action sequences have little to no tension because the battle droids are ******* useless.
-Anakin and Obi-Wan were supposed to have been good friends but come off as a bratty child and a nagging parent.
-Darth Vader was supposed to have been tragically seduced by the dark side, not a ******* psychopath who went on murderous rampages.
-Just a lot of boring characters like Queen Amidala, Obi-Wan in the first movie, Mace Windu (why cast Samuel L. Jackson as one of the most boring characters in movie history?),
-Forced romance
-NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
-George Lucas is trying to say thay Anakin built C3PO wtf

I still haven't talked about what i found to be the most odd, and out place scene in the movie,
when we first go into watto's shop, and Jar Jar is messing around. things kinda slow down...and then this talking pizza roll appears

It tells you ..butcher your wife in the bathtub...

_hello, you know what to do, use the meat cleaver and swing hard to break the bones, put the body in the dumpster, and be careful not to get blood on the carpetm because it doesn't watch out_

I found this scene to be terribly out of place in the context of the movie, I have no idea what Lucas was going for, but given some of the other stuff I guess it makes sense

Well to sum it up
Episode I

The story is confusing (who are the trade federation, what do they want? what is at stake? We are told that the people on Naboo are suffering, but we never get to see it, we hardly see any devestation done by the trade federation to care)

The climax has too much going so it's hard to get emotionally involved with anything (they cut from comedic with jar jar, to space with anakin, to some more dramatic moment with Maul and Qui gon, to a battle in the palace within a minute)

The battle between Maul and the Jedi, while technically impressive, lack any depth, they are just fighting because Maul is bad and the Jedi are good, there is no emotional connection between the characters like with Vader and Luke or Vader and Obi wan. They might as well have been fighting another droid.

The characters lack depth and are mostly boring (Describe Obi Wan Kenobi's character from episode I without telling what he looks like or what his role is, almost impossible)

Qui Gon Jinn getting slave anakin from Jewfly(aka Watto) is weird and makes no sense

There is no main character, or anyone to connect to

Anakin Building C3PO is wrong in every possible way

Midi Chlorians ruin the mystery of the force

That is just one movie, episode II is even worse

Considering you try pretty hard to rationalize everything done wrong with Episode I, I continue with part II

Anakin and Obi wan are never shown as friends, even though they were supposed to be friends. They never show their actual friendship, they only have one moment of friendship in the entire movie. The rest of the movie, they argue and complain to each other. Their friendship is something we are TOLD, not something we SEE

The same goes for the lovestory. We see Anakin and Padme together 'falling in love' but if you analyze what happens there is no reason for them to fall in love. there is no chemistry. see pic related

every scene is shot in the most boring way, and every non-action scene is of characters, sitting, walking, and giving some boring expository dialogue. It's all shot in front of green screen making it look very fake.
Every scene is shot with three cameras, one for a total, and one per character. There is no creative composition in the shots, it looks like soap opera for tv

All clones are CGI, it looks like a cartoon

They never explain why the seperatists are bad. All we know is that they want to leave the republic. In the end Yoda (the peace loving jedi master) starts an intergalactic war to save friends.

it ends with a huge battle, but it's emotionless clones versus robots, once again no personal involvement.

Jedi aren't allowed to love, yet they are allowed to get mad and pissed of at each other

Yoda looks like a ps3 character, and him figthing with a lightsaber goes against what was established in the Empire Strikes back and Return of the jedi

The Jedi are protectors of peace and justice in the Republic, yet after ten years they still havent freed anakins mom from slaves. Instead they are dealing with 'border disputes' and other political **** .

The entire set up of Owen lars makes no sense. Anakin arives at his house, commits genocide to a local tribal group, brings a corpse home, steals a droid, and goes home

Oh, this part right here: "Anakin and Obi wan are never shown as friends, even though they were supposed to be friends. They never show their actual friendship, they only have one moment of friendship in the entire movie. The rest of the movie, they argue and complain to each other. Their friendship is something we are TOLD, not something we SEE." I was going to list this as a chief concern of mine but it would have taken too long. If you truly consider yourself to be knowledgeable about cinema, then you'll stop defending the majorly flawed product that is the new trilogy. I'm not even a massive fan boy, I'm just approaching it from a professional technical standpoint.

Once again I couldn't comment so..

>Being whiny when you are a ******* teenager does not make you a villain. Are you trying to troll me?
Anakin murders women in children in episode II (and don't say sandpeople aren't people), this is before falling to the dark side.
So yeah he was evil, or at least not a good guy, from the start.
But aside from that, when you are writing a character that audiences are supposed to sympathize with, and care for, you don't write him as a selfish arrogant whining character who never does anything to help others.

Sure, luke whined a lot too, but he was also kind, he helped others, he matured, and he saved the day, risking his own life doing so I might ad. I don't know when ever Anakin did something for the good of others apart from the time when he blew up the droid control ship in episode I, and that was an accident! Oh yeah, he carried Obi wan for a short walk in episode III. But that's about it.
If you want to see an actual story about a man who turns to evil unfold, I suggest you watch the Godfather, that one shows how it is done properly.

I am just saying that these movies are very poorly done and don't add up to the original story.    
Yes, it is established that Anakin was good man, not a saint, but a good man, and a good friend. Old Ben lightens up when he talks about Luke's father and mourns about the loss of his friend. Actually, the whole point of Episode VI is that Luke needs to bring his father back, believing there is still good in him. Eventually the whole point is his redemption. now how can there be redemption if he was never good in the first place? If we never got to like him because all he did was complain and be rude and selfish, then what is the whole point of it all.  The entire prequel trilogy, and Episode II especially, completely undermine the old movies. And that is just the Vader part, there are SOOO MANY other things I can go on about that completely clash with the original movies.   
>Yoda having a lightsaber, even though the whole point of yoda was that the force was beyond the physical, and that you didnt need a lightsaber to be a Jedi   
>the Jedi being warriors and not actual keepers of the piece   
>Jedi not being allowed to love, even though they are allowed to get pissed at each other   
>the force being some kind of biological thing    
>ruining Boba Fett   
   
Aside from the fact that they clash with the original movies they are badly made, terribly written. But that has already been pointed out many times be me and the other guy

I still suggest you watch this guys review. Aside from the fact that he is spot on, it's also hilarious to hear this psychopath fat guy in wheelchair whine about a 13 year old movie for hours   
   
And stop calling other people 'whiny bitch' because they disagree with you and take time to explain why

Speaking of how I met your mother, the Star Wars Prequels, especially episode II and III, are filmed like a sitcom. Three cameras. One for a total shot that opens the scene, one for each characters. The scenes always start with a total, then followed by shot, reverse shot. it's like a computer program edited it. It almost always features the characters sitting on couches or standing near windows.
There is no clever composition, clever camera angles, camera movement, blocking (which means the placement of characters and objects in the frame), no creative use of lighting on the set. it all looks static and fake. Movies are art, even commercial hollywood blockbusters are.
But in the prequels everything is shot like they just wanted to get i over with. Put some people in front of a green screen, they talk, later some fake background is added, some **** flies through the screen, and that's it.

While you might think this is the case for most movies, it certainly is not. Take for example the scene in pic related from Pulp Fiction. Two characters walk through a hallway and they talk about feet, there are no cuts in this scene. The camera follows them all the way through the hallway. Once they reach the door were they were going. The camera stops there, and the characters walk further, implying that the camera is waiting for them at their destination. With these little things something as boring as dialogue about foot massages is elevated by giving it a more interesting touch
Now you might not notice these things while watching a movie, but your brain does. It's little things like this that make movies an art form and not ****
If a similar scene was done in the star wars prequels it would start of with two characters walking through a computer generated hallway. Them stopping (shot reverse shot) and then they would continue walking. All while spouting out terribly written expository dialogue.

so from a cinematic viewpoint these movies are terrible

For some reason I couldn't reply to your other comment so here it goes
>Major in your eyes
Major in pretty much everyones eyes, everyone who cares about more than just flashing lightsabers. people who care about actual storytelling
> The fact that you have an entire image folder dedicated to hating the sequels just makes me think more of you as a mindless hater.
For starters, most of these images are googled, and the last one I posted is actually complimenting Episode II. if I were a mindless hater I would only ramble on about Jar Jar Binks
>And it's never said that anakin was the angel that fell from grace.
It is established in the original trilogy that Luke's father was good man who fell to the dark side. Not a selfish jerk who got tricked to the dark side
>Also, you keep trying to pass YOURS and a few others' opinions about how the movies should have been made as an objective and universal truth.
You called that guy an idiot because he didn't like the star wars prequels, I am just showing why some people might have problems with it.
> movies should have been made as an objective and universal truth. Sorry pal, but that's not how it works, no matter how many fancy words you use and how much you try to fake technical knowledge.
I haven't used any fancy word and this 'technical knowledge' is as entry level as it can get

Little detail? the fact that the movies completely ignore the craft of making a film and is shot like a soap opera for tv is not a minor detail. It's pretty ******* major. Every non action scene is completely devoid of life. It's pretty essential that a movie is more than just 'put people in front of the camera and shoot it'. That is not a tiny technical detail, that is the most essential part of a movie.
The action scenes are ironically thought out pretty well, too bad they involve clones vs robots, once again devoid of any emotion. Who gives a **** about clones versus robot, nothing is at stake. They never explain what the conflict is about other than 'the seperatists want to leave the republic' When an audience doesn't know what is at stake, why should they care?
These aren't minor nitpicks, hell I didn't even need to mention Jar Jar Binks. These are ******* MAJOR problems with a movie.


and back to the characters.
Anakin is a terrible person from the start who constantly argues with his master. We are told he was a good friend of Kenobi but we never see actual friendship except for the opening of Revenge of the Sith where they act friendly. But not long after that scene we already see Anakin still distrusts Obi-wan. This is not how friendship works
Also, Anakin is a stupid asshole from the start, when the whole point of the movie is to show how Anakin was a nice guy who tragically fell to the dark side, I think it's pretty weak to show that he was an asshole from the start.
The romance is terribly done. There is no reason Padme would fall in love with this arrogant, selfish, whining, douchebag. The weak lovestory gets compensated with a lot of romantic cliche's.
So yeah after all these points the statement "They're just good movies, good story, good acting and good effects. And i'm not enough of a cunt to ruin people's mood by whining about some minor flaws no on cares about. ' is a pretty darn stupid. These weren't minor points. This is MAJOR

Anakin and Obi were supposed to be good friends. we only see a few scenes of actual friendship in these movies. and it's pretty clear that they despise each other. Obi was is constantly complaining about Anakin to other jedi, and Anakin complains about Obi wan to Padme. Friendship isn't based on mistrust

The only thing good in Ep. I was Liam Neeson, Ian McDiarmid and the 3-way duel (which so far for me looks the most "real" out of all prequel duels)

Oh, and Duel of the Fates. Can't forget that.

>Yes, just because he doesn't need a lightsaber to be a jedi doesn't mean he has to shun the device and think its black magic.    
Yoda jumping around like ninja turtle goes against his character.   
>Keepers of the peace by waving signs and going on protestations right?    
How about preventing war, instead of starting it and cooperating in it.  The Jedi are literally the ones who start the war   
>They're not allowed to get pissed at each other either, but they do and they love too, behind the rules.    
Obi wan constantly gets mad, nobody ever says something about that, loving leads to the dark side but being pissed doesnt'?   
>More fanboi bitching.    
When you turn something mythical into science you kinda miss the point   
>And some more fanboi bitching.    
Retroactively ruining a character is just bad, Boba Fett's strenght as a character lies in the fact that you don't know anything about him and that he's a mysterie. But saying he is a clone, and that millions of him have been around, well that kinda undermines his scenes.    
   
And back to Vader, why should we care about him if he is so unlikeable? the only likeable character was pic-related. Ewan really tried to make something great out of his character, too bad it wasn't enough to save the movie. If the movie had more lively performances like Ewan, was a bit better edited and filmed, I would find it much better, even if it did clash with the original trilogy

Actually my teacher attended NYU and has done interview work with everyone from Leonardo DiCaprio to George Clooney. What you mentioned are only a few flaws within the new trilogy. Look at it this way: In the original Jaws film, the mechanical shark kept breaking down. As a result of this, scenes that relied heavily on the visual of shark instead focused more on dialogue and emotion. What do you believe makes a better movie, substance or special effects? The same concept applies to the new trilogy.
