Okay, i'm a noob. I just saw Star Wars.

I spent most of my life talking about how stupid Star Wars was and how I never want to watch it and all that fantasy stuff is stupid.. Then a couple weeks ago for some reason I stopped and thought about what I knew about the movies and decided "hey, they might be pretty good."

So luckily I stumbled on the entire series, and got them all from a friend. Last weekend I watched all 6 (from old to new, not from episode 1 to 6). Anyway, I thought it was a great story. I loved the movies, and they've just been rolling around in my head since I saw them.

I don't really know what else to say, anyone wanna talk about Star Wars?

Did you like the newest ones too?

I ask because you're probably the only person on earth who watched them with pure, unbiased eyes.

I didn't like the last 3, but that's just my opinion.

They were good overall, but they just didn't match up to the first 3 made.

Me and the wife are HUGE Star Wars nerds. Her more than I, but she really got me into again once we bought all of them on DVD. I think the new one's are alright, but honestly nothing can top the hoth battle, or the ewoks song, or darth vaders timeless 'Luke, I am your father'.

It's a romance set in space, what more can be said? (lol tons!...but I don't really know where to start).
Its like watching tv except its a show about wet clothes.

Quoted from Sukkit:

I did like the newer ones. One thing I didn't like about them, mainly just episode 6 was that it was heavily animated. Like clips of R2D2 didn't need to be so computer-generated, I felt like I was watching a video game through a lot of it. Other than that I had no problems with it.

I think the story lines in the originals are more interesting just by the nature of it all though. By that I mean the characters are more interesting. Han Solo, the renegade mercenary turned-freedom fighter. Luke Skywalker, orphan to the parents who took care of him, son to of the face of the evil empire Darth Vadar, secretly the brother to the princess who falls in love with Han. All of the characters have really cool stories, the way they're set up.

The newer three still have awesome characters like the first three, really well done and everything, but I feel like the nature of the overall story means the coolest characters are in the second half. But I still thought the new ones were really good.

Jar Jar Binks was really annoying though.

err, if by episode 6 you mean movie 6. Episodes 4-6 are the first three films, and episodes 1-3 are the last three films. They do it that way so that it's chronological.

Right, brainfart. Still, i'm wondering if thats what he's referring to.

I like star wars, i can't believe dimi does too now. I agree that the originals were probably better but mainly because the story was set up that way.

Anyone ever seen the movie clerks when they are talking about the contract workers on the death star. I think thats hilarious.

If memory serves me right the term "Cho-Sun" refers to the Jedi definition of having all four limbs cut off by lightsaber.

So by that definition...Yes, Anakin is the Cho-sun one.

I liked all of them but I do agree the first three (Episodes 4-6) were better played because the acting was much better and relied less on special scenes that just didn't seem necessary.


EDIT: When I saw clerks, I was about died when the topic of the death star came up. Clerks 2 also had a good debate going between Star Wars and Lord of the Rings.

I hate the Ewoks and I can never understand why everyone loves The Empire Strikes Back so much.

However, I remember being a kid and thinking lightsabers were awesome and that Darth Vader was cool, so for that, Star Wars is okay. Plus Chewbacca.

After not seeing the original movies for a good four years or so, I flipped onto the start of Return of the Jedi while watching TV the other day.

It was almost surprising to me how awesome and inventive it was, since I've grown used to Lucas' new crappy Ewan McGregor shit.

I ended up watching the entire thing, even though I wasn't planning on it.
