i know i'll get red thumbs, but i actually liked the prequels, 1 and 2 more from nostalgia since they came out when i was a kid, but i loved 3 and the short speech that Obi wan gave after Anikan was defeated just punched my heart in the balls. Plus, i mean, it's referencing the two's life together and that even when they're mortal enemies fighting to the death they can't change the fact that they know each other so well...

There are some people who actually care about Anakin from the prequels (or the prequels in general), hence the confrontation between the two characters is considered by them to be sad when the truth is that the films not only do not deserve the emotional investment that occurs for some people but they do not deserve to be treated as anything beyond a stain on the record of George Lucas (who despite it all I still hold a lot of respect for considering his early works such as the original trilogy and American Graffiti.)

Eh, I don't mind the red thumbs... and okay?
I said my opinion and you said yours. If you want a fact-based deconstruction of exactly why the prequels were as absolutely atrocious as they were (naturally using references to the source material, industry standards, valid comparison and the like) then I could give it to you easily but honestly... even if the films are god-awful from a technical standpoint there is no reason that they shouldn't be liked.
Opinion vs Fact and all that.

Uhm... I am calm. Though we are communing via text so frankly I can see where the miscommunication has occurred. I have a sharp tone to my speech which is offset by an awful lot of visual factors.
(In all honesty I should probably amend my speech-paterns for the online world but people who are smart enough for me to give a damn talking to won't mind a misunderstanding and people who I don't really give a damn about I don't really give enough of a damn about to care what they take from what I say. I personally believe you fall into the former category.)
And I'm afraid that what I said there was actually fact. If you want a thorough explanation (and I do mean thorough) about all of the reasons why the movies are terrible then I'll include a link for you to view at your own discretion, but a movie's quality (which can be divined from several observable and documentable factors) and one's own personal enjoyment of the movie are two disparate entities entirely.
E.G. I personally like 'The Cat in the Hat' with Mike Meyers but I fully understand all the myriad reasons why it is an awful movie.
We're smart people, you and I. We understand the point of view that we disagree with before we disagree with it, otherwise we would be ignorant.
Link: (Be aware, the review is very thorough and lasts a while. May want to view it in multiple sittings if you decide to see what all the fuss is really about.)

I do however wish you a great night, and for gods sake when it comes to whether something is good or not saying that your opinion is a fact is like when 6 year olds say that their action figure is cooler that yours.

You're either really stupid or really bad at reading because I've not once said that you should/should not like what you like (actually I've stated on multiple occasions the exact opposite.)
And dude... for the love of god... learn the difference between opinion and fact otherwise you are always going to confuse the two of them and sound like an idiot.
I actually defined the two briefly above but as you evidently did not read it then there's little I can do for you. Just... try not to fuck up your life, okay? Because it's narrow-minded misunderstanding like that that is going to land you in a whole shit-ton of trouble.

1) I'm European.
2) It really isn't murky at all. It's confused, hap-hazard and poorly written.
If you really want to know the full truth as to why so many people hate the prequel saga then go take a look at the Red Letter Media reviews on youtube. They fully deconstruct the prequels from start to finish using facts, analysis and all that good stuff.
I'm not saying you shouldn't like the films, I'm merely offering you the chance to understand a different point of view that you appear to currently not.
#38 - snowshark (04/22/2013) [-]
Granted, however that's not really an excuse. Just because they're not the worst doesn't mean they're not terrible. From a purely analytical standpoint they are massively flawed in pretty much every conventional respect.
Honestly, there is so much to learn about movies from simply watching people tear the prequels apart. It is a learning experience like no other because literally everything that can be flawed is massively flawed. I do not hate the prequels, rather I am glad that they exist. They taught me more about movies than literally any other film series.
However, the parts of the prequels that are good (yes, I'm a critic and I'm admitting that there are good aspects) can be found in material such as the Clone Wars mini-series which are largely devoid of all the badness that the prequels are full of. So the problem lies not with the one thing that people seem to really like about the prequels (the setting and universe) rather with the manner in which it is portrayed through film.
I'll point you at the link again in hopes that someone else may just get to see it (because it really changed my views on not just the prequels but film in general) but it's by no means compulsory.

Eh, I disagree. I think movies never left those 'glory days'.
Yeah, there's a lot of bullshit on the screens these days but people are still making black and white movies similar to the classics. They're just not in the mainstream cinema anymore. Django Unchained is a send-up to spaghetti westerns and a glorious celebration of movie-violence, similar to that of the action-movie-era, but coupled with the narrative sensibilities of the time.
Yes, Hollywood is currently creatively bankrupt (mostly because they have forced themselves into a position where to please their audience they are required to spend vast amounts of money and in doing so often only please the lowest common denominator) but then you see films like The Avengers and Seven Psychopaths and you realise that movies aren't dead, the good ones are still there. It's just that Hollywood is now focussed on a different market to before. You just need to find out where the original market went and go there.

I'm not saying that good writing is dead, I'm just saying the classics, Ben Hurr, movies like that, it'll probably be a decade (at least) before writers try to hit that level again.
There are movies that are well written, Warm Bodies was one I saw recently that I enjoyed (good feels there bro) and was decently written.
It had a good mix of comedy and romance, as well as a bit of action (that wasn't overdone either).
But yeah, like you've said most movies pander to the lowest common denominator, while there are still some good movies.
#45 - snowshark (04/22/2013) [-]
Aye. People who like movies will be the ones you see despairing over the state of cinema.
People who love movies do not care. They love movies and have probably long-since found ways to get the movies they want. Either through the internet or by sifting the dirt for the specks of gold, movie-lovers will find their nuggets.
It is a strange truth but when you truly love something then you do not complain about how it is broken, rather you find ways to make it work.
