El Sammo - you answered your own question "Why the Ewok hate?" twice in your own post :P

1) I have an Ewok plushy
2) They defeated the Empire with rocks and sticks

Well Ferrit, being a fan of the Empire, I have to give the little things kudos for beating the shit out of the Stormtroopers, as cheaply armoured and shoddily trained they may be.

One thing that could have made Episode 1 900% better:
Cast Sean Connery for the role of Qui-Gon.

I haven't geeked out on the web about this, but did anybody else notice THE glaring inconsistency in this movie? In ESB when Luke returns to Dagobah to complete his training, there's an exchange between Yoda and Obi Wan's "force ghost" to the extent that Obi wan defends Luke at one point by asking Yoda "Was I any different when you trained me?" So...I call gundark crap on Qui Gon even being in the first movie. That and... I have to rescind one criticism I made. I hated the NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO scene...but upon rewatching the original trilogy it's pretty obvious that DV is still ruled by emotion...IE...the dark side!

NO inconsistency there: Obi-Wan's training was started by Yoda (like all temple padawans) and wasn't training under Gui-Gon until age 12 (like his 7th year of training if not more). Luke's training under Yoda (like his 2nd year of training at best) is far more basic and generalized- but most compared to Obi-Wan's temple years where he disobeyed Yoda plenty of times [as seen in Jedi Apprentice series by Jude Watson]. Furthermore any senior Jedi, especially the Jedi council, is considered a trainer for any wisdom/advice/discipline passed down. And if the EU dosn't float your boat, there's always the end scenes where Obi-Wan takes little orphan Annie as his padawan regardless of what Yoda thinks, before he knows the council outvoted Yoda over young Skywalker's training. And finally, and most importantly, If you read this whole reply about OT VS PT inconsistency: go outside and get some exercise fanboy

Personally I kinda like the idea of "always two there are, no more, no less" because that means that the moment Darth Maul died Palpatine had to quick look around and go "You there, your now a Sith apprentice!" to the best candidate he could see to guarantee that there would be no less then two sith.

I personally believe that there was nothing George Lucas could have done to top 4-6, nothing. He could not meet any of our fanboy expectations to the hilt and I'm sure he knew it. In fact, I bet his sole intentions were to simply entertain, which seemed to work on all of the youngins who didn't see 4-6 in the theaters.

Something I've always hated about Star Wars is how they make action figures of the most one dimensional characters that serve no purpose to the plot. Who the fuck knows of any of those bastards.

My loathing for episodes 1 and 2 knows no bounds. (I nearly walked out of the theater during the whole "Anakin/Padme falling in love" fiasco...) Episode 3 was only slightly better in that I think I only rolled my eyes about 20 times during the movie as opposed to about 50 during the first two. Part of the reason I may have like Episode 3 better may be due to the fact that I knew the torture was finally coming to an end.

George Lucas = WORST DIALOG WRITER EVER.
Combine that with terrible acting (I'm looking at you Hayden C.) and you have a recipe for disaster...

waa waa waa- everyone can make a better prequel than GL. Probally, but it seems like the EU was the big winner of the PT- and at the end of the day, it's still better than any other sci-fi (looking at you Trek).

Hmmm. Yep, I re-read my original post and no where in it did I state that I could make a better prequel than Lucas. I was simply making an observation that any human with about a 6th grade knowledge of modern English can tell that the dialog was awful. It was made even worse because Hayden C. is a terrible actor and Natalie Portman and Ewen McGregor basically mailed it in...

I do, however, agree that it is better than Star Trek.

After waiting all those years, waiting for more Star Wars, SO HYPED after all those years, waiting for the prequel, The only thing I could say after the movie was:
"well, the pod race was cool".

It was like my friends and I had left the funeral of our best friend and we were staring at the ground saying mundane things like:

"the flowers were pretty, there were so many"
"it was a nice service"

UTTERLY DISSAPOINTING

Thank you for re-enduring this movie to entertain us. I agree with the things that you liked about TPM, although they are SO brief within the film.

In the original trailer for TPM (which we all thought was awesome and promised so much...) the number 1 thing you hate - "Always two there are." - that line was shortened without the "no more, no less" part.

Looking forward to the next two prequel write-ups (though I'm sorry you have to sit through them again).

God, I hate these prequels.

I don't know, honestly i enjoyed the prequels..well this is coming from a fan boy who can't get enough of anything "Star Wars". But to be honest the prequels don't hold a candle to the original trilogy. But overall an enjoyable experience.

One thing that irked the hell out of me was that line about there only ever being two Sith. It was like Lucas just took a giant steaming dump on all of the novels and comics that have kept his series alive over the decades since Jedi was released. Hell, Knights of the Old Republic should have been used as the model for the prequels, or at least a Shadows of the Empire movie.

I would like to see a prequel to the prequels. Something similar to the video games "Knights of the Old Republic." If only we can somehow keep Lucas' hands out of it though and let some new blood take on the task.
