    If you havent seen the Star Wars episodes your missing out....



    Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith came out yesturday....that make me want to watch Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope and that makes me want to watch Episode 5:Empire Strikes Back....which makes me want to watch Episode 6: Return of the Jedi again.


    Episode 1 & 2 suck IMO....but you have to watch those if you want to watch Episode 3.


    if anyone doesnt know....you have to watch them 4,5,6 then watch 1,2,3.

    I would agree on that viewing order as well.

    Episode III was decent but I thought Serenity was better.

    Lucas can't write dialog to save his life.

      4-6 Stand better as a storyline than 1-3. The dialog is horrible in the 1-3, most of the acting questionable, (Sam Jackson & Liam Neeson being exceptions).

      Better special effects in 1-3, but nothing that stands out against any other fantasy / sci fi movie put out today. The hype far outdistanced the product.

          I don't necessarily agree that you have to watch 1 and 2 to enjoy or understand 3. I watched 1 but skipped 2 because I heard it wasn't that good. Episode 3 was more than I expected and tied in well to the later episodes I thought. I tried to find discrepencies but couldn't even though I'm sure they exist.

          Anyone know when they're coming out with a boxed set episodes 1-3?

            I am waiting to buy the 1-3 trilogy until they do. I would assume around X-Mas...

            Personally, I like the idea of watching them 1-6...

            I hated 1 and 2 when they came out, but once I saw 3, I kind of liked 1 and 2 better because some of the backstory stuff...

            I hated Hayden Christiansens acting in 2 though, it was horrid. And in 1 they made it real childish.

            My favorite will always be EMPIRE STRIKES BACK!

              I love all the movies, but one thing I don't agree on so far..I think Ewan McGregor was amazing as Obi
              Power is not revealed by striking hard or often, but by striking true.

              It is men who endure toil and dare danger that achieve glorious deeds, and it is a wonderful thing to live with courage and to die leaving behind an everlasting renown.

                No, Uncle George can't write dialogue.

                The novelizations for the prequels are better than the movies (with the obvious exception of the visual effects), especially AotC and RotS. In the RotS book, you really get a feel for Anakin's and Obi-Wan's relationship, why they became so legendary. The fall of Anakin is also MUCH more believable and well done. The return of Qui-Gon is much better too, not merely an aside.


                It's interesting to note that RotS made direct reference to the Clone Wars animated episodes, so I guess they can be considered canon. Those were very well done and fun to watch. For instance, Grievous is coughing throughout RotS. He does this because at the end of the Clone Wars animated stuff his chest was crush via the Force by Mace Windu as he was escaping Coruscant with Palpy. That immediately begins what is the start of RotS.

                Lucas tried to tie in as many things as he could, but I don't think he did as good a job as I would have liked.

                I think if you're going to watch them all in a super-marathon (and I'll be there in line when they do so in the theaters), I think you should watch them chronologically. But that's just me.
                Victory and defeat are matters of the temporary force of circumstance.

                  I heard that lucas had help from spielburg in the writing of episode III, at this point its just a rumor but I dont believe the bloney of lucas writing all of it back in 1977.
                  But all in all I enjoyed the whole sgas very much, as a fan I won dogg any part of it but true ep. I and II could have been better, III was awsome.

                    TDforTatum26: You are exactly correct.

                    We got III yesterday and that made me move on to IV. Then to V and then fell asleep during VI not from boredom but from exhaustion. After all it was around 2:45 am

                    Den/Bal: We also had the IV/V/VI Box set already in the collection and the trip to Wal-Mart only confirmed what you had originally said. The I/II/III box set is due out in Dec. They did however have I and II for sale solo which we went ahead and bought.

                    We only paid $15 ($14 and some change) per DVD including III. We were pleasantly surprised to see those prices. Rollback. They had the latter 3 movies on box set for $48 ($47 and some change) so buying the first 3 solo saved a couple of bucks.

                    So now we have all 6 on DVD and I need to go finish watching Return Of The Jedi now.

                    I like the entire story line and had to look back and tie loose ends together.

                    We had an argument about the droids name. Son always called him CP30 when it is C3PO.

                    In episode IV Princess Leia puts the Death Star plans in R2D2 and explains how her father was the one that could understand them (or something to that affect) Since we now know Darth Vader is her father as well as Luke's, then who is she referring to?

                      I've had the argument about Threepio with my lad as well. Kids!

                      Leia was refering to her adoptive father, Bail Organa, who died on Alderaan, and was played by Jimmy Smits in the prequels.

                      As for the long viewing, I saw the first general showing in the UK, about 12:15am on the day of release, got home about 3:30 am and was up for work at 7:00. The things you do for love .

                      The following week I had myself a major session, and watched I & II at home, went to see III at the flicks again, then watched IV, V, & VI when I got back home, having booked a day off work. My lad's planning on watching all six, maybe over a couple of days during the Xmas holidays, got him well hooked

                      I've only just got the novel of RotS, and agree 100% with how much more feel it gives for the relationships than the films. I've got to give Lucas Books a lot of credit for the expanded universe that's been created to go along with the films, and I think that's where the idea for the Clone Wars animation came from, the way that they have controlled the univverse to avoid continuity errors, and introduce charectors such as Greivous outside of the films. Some of them are even pretty good sci-fi novels in their own right

                      To be honest, I found it very difficult to connect with the characters in the prequels. Whilst it was quite interesting to see a young Obi Wan & Anakin, the fact that Annakin built Threepio, etc, I heard the rough details of how Obi Wan & Anakin fought in the lava field , damn must over 15 years ago now. Other than Obi Wan & Yoda, you knew that all the Jedi were going to be wiped out, the 'cute' 9 year would become a murderous monster, so for me the only real suprise was Amidala's death, especially since Leia claimed to have memories of her mother in RotJ! An African lad that I work with hasn't seen any of the movies yet, so he's going to actually see the whole saga evolve, maybe that 'suprise' factor will improve the prequels.

                        While I like the novelizations of the prequels, the Expanded Universe stories are another matter altogether. Most of them are crap. Crap writing, crap plots, just crap. You can find infinitely better stories in so-called fanfiction than the EU stuff.

                        I read most of them just because, but didn't bother with the post EU series of books the New Jedi Order. I refuse to accept them.


                        To be honest, I found it very difficult to connect with the characters in the prequels.
                        That could very well be circumstantial. The OT characters have been with us for a very long time (since I was 6) and they are more real to us. The prequels have some when we are adults and they are far more recent.

                        Yup.

                        Yeah, that was one of those attempted tie-ins that didn't work for me at all. Leia was with her mom for what, like 5 seconds?

                          Maybe George forgot that bit of Jedi

                          What I'd really like to see now is a good attempt at filling the years between RotS & ANH.

                          What did Vader and Palpatine get upto to force armed rebellion?

                          Actually, that was one of the biggest things that I liked in the novelization of RotS.......all the bits about Mon Mothma & Bail Organa and the way they tried to keep Amidala on the fringe of the political intrigue that was starting to develop to resist Palpatine.

                            Well, you're going to get your wish. Don't you know about the television series?

                            I don't know how far you are in reading it, but the beginning is excellent, the parts about the two. The fall of Anakin (later in the book) and the reintroduction of Qui-Gon (at the end) are so much better than in the movie. Some of they scenes of the fledgling rebellion members are actually part of the deleted scenes of the dvd, so it will be cool to see them.
