Well, this is the first thread where I haven't been attacked and pounced on for my opinion on the Star Wars prequels. Then again, that's probably cause Escobar hasn't replied to the thread yet.

No, no in this you are wrong. The prequels are incompetently written, directed and acted.  They are awful, terrible, horrific cinematic abortions.

They were no worse written then the originals, having extremely emotionally resonating characters with deep arcs, the direction is no worse than the originals, and the criticisms on the acting are based on fans not understanding the characters (i.e, Anakin comes of as wooden and emotionless because 1) He's a Jedi and 2) He is desperately trying to hide and restrain his natrual emotions and teenage angst/confidence which come in conflict with his identity as a Jedi. And I don't know about you but I thought Hayden did a GREAT job in the scene where he tells Padme about the Tuskens as well as the scene on Mustafar in Episode III) They were smart, masterful, cinematic masterpieces that are merely hated on because they are so different from the OT, although personally I believe Episode III is the best of the saga and Episode II is the 3rd best of the saga beguind Empire and Revenge.

Now I know you are trolling.  If you think anyone did a great job while delivering a "this sand is so rough but your skin is so soft" line Annakin did then you'd obviously be incapable of forming complete sentences.  There iis no emotional resonating in them. One of the best jokes I've seen is to ask people to describe the characters in phantom menace without using physical descriptions or function. In other words,describe what sort of people they are. The first 3 are not great either. Only Empire is really  a good film overall.  The first 3 shine though compared to how poorly the prequels were done.

Please wait…
