I think that's the main problem with the prequal. Too many people setting the bar too high. I actually enjoyed them. Ep 1 not too much, but that's because it had to develop the story just like fellowship of the ring.

I know it's sacrilegious, but I hate 3PO in the originals more than Jar Jar in the first. He's so annoying.... I hope he isn't in the next one.

I appreciate your optimism, I really do. I hope if they do make a new movie, that it will be good. I'm a little skeptical admittedly but I'm willing to give it a chance.

But it doesn't take being a Star Wars nerd to see that the prequels were excrement. If you enjoyed them that's fine, but I would say you're the type of person who just likes to sit down and be entertained then, which is cool. But those movies had atrocious acting, plot holes within themselves, were often contradictory to the original movies, and had "cool" villains that were marketing gimmicks which lasted all of 15 minutes on-screen and had little to no development.

Those movies could have been made by the Syfy channel's staff (many of whom used to work in the adult film industry) if it wasn't for the special effects budget. I am a Star Wars fan, but regardless I don't like movies that clearly had little foresight and were thrown out to grab some bucks.

I was 12 when Episode 2 came out so I really enjoyed it minus the mushy stuff. I forgot what year Episode 3 came out, I know I was in high school so I was a little more critical of it. But I guess you could say I'm a big fan of the originals but was happy to be entertained with mediocre-to-decent movies. I can say I felt the magic of seeing star wars for the first time each time they put out a new movie, so I think something was done right. Plus Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefront 2 are on my list of all time favorite games, another reason to be thankful for George Lucas' capitalist ways

I won't be convinced or even talked into being convinced until they are out. JJ Abrams work is great but, I have no faith in this working out.

I've been a fan since New Hope. I've enjoyed every single one of them. Movies are just entertainment for me, and in that, they've all succeeded.
My random thoughts are:

Empire Strikes Back was my favorite by far.

Jar jar and ewoks were awful additions.

Natalie Portman was fine as Queen Amidala.

I'm really looking forward to whatever comes next.

We must be somehow related

And by fine, did you mean adequate or delicious? Because let's just say I was in puberty during episode 2.

A delicious morsel. The kind that comes in small quantities, like a bonbon, and leaves you yearning for more. She's.... so fine.

I heard JJ plans on combining the Star Trek and Star Wars worlds...just like they did with Alien vs Predator
