    Default Star Wars Prequel Trilogy Review

    Given that there is quite an amount of Star Wars threads active at the moment, I figured that it would be appropriate to post one of the best (if not very best) reviews of the first three films. Done by Red Letter Media, these reviews go above and beyond others as it explains from a analytical perspective why certain aspects of the film just don't work, in addition to questioning the logic of the plot and characters.

    Enjoy.

    Episode 1

    Empire Strikes back is better.

    I do like Episode 2 the best of 1 - 3.

    The prequels need no explanation, lol. The pain it afflicts in simply watching them speaks enough.

    What's with all the Prequel Trilogy hate? Obviously, even though it wasn't done very well (most likely because it was rushed since Lucas imposed a time constraint that his movies had to be only 2 hours long). The story (especially Anakin's transformation/tragedy) is obviously superior to the boring, cliche story of Luke, Han, and Leia saving the galaxy.

    Damn straight; it's easily the best film out of all six.

    Are you talking about the reviews or the actual film?

    True that.

    I suppose it may be a matter of opinion then; some find the prequels good in their own way, other think they're garbage; but really all that matter is that individual people enjoy what they enjoy, whether it be a film, or a mocking review of it.

    While I liked the "saving the galaxy" storyline of the originals, I agree with you that the prequels had the meatier, more intriguing storyline. But the execution was *awful*. I mean, just terrible. There was more potential, but much less follow-through. Nonsensical plot holes/explanations, bad writing, ghastly dialog, deux-ex-machina explanations of stuff that didn't need explaining, "let's make an uneccesary character(s) to sell toys" -- all of that was in the prequels, in spades.

    If you doubt me, go back and watch any of the "romance" scenes, especially in episode 2. If you can get through that without cringing, you're more forgiving than I am.

    These have been around for a while. For those who didn't bother watching, they're both really insightful in terms of showing you how filmmaking and narratives work, and very funny. They aren't just aimless or bitter ranting. They're fully worth watching
