Star Wars is the best series ever!

Postby adamg0d » Wed Oct 05, 2011 12:17 pm

This is one sci-fi movie series that is an absolute keeper! Star Wars is a gem. The characters, the plot, the technology, and the special effects really put you in a total state of awe. Here you have a walking tyrant named Darth Vader, a human iron lung who has a strong craving for power. He uses the mystical power known as The Force to get get anything in his will. The Force choke is wicked! Then you have Luke Skywalker(Mark Hamill), a simple farm boy who wants to go to the academy, then he and his uncle purchased some droids that have some important information to an old Jedi named Ben "Obi-Wan" Kenobi(Alec Guinness), who has kept a light-saber from his old student Anakin Skywalker(Darth Vader). I liked the scene where Luke, Han Solo(Harrison Ford), and Chewbacca(Peter Mayhew) took out the StormTroopers. Then there's the Death Star battle. A real gem. When they showed the extra scenes later in the years, it's worth the watch even more! The commercials, the ads, the toys, the movie isn't a hit without them, and George Lucas will get kudos from me! 10/10 Stars!.


I've seen Star Wars dozens of times, I can look at it and say "yes, the acting is great, the writing is great" etc etc. But every single time Han Solo flies out of nowhere in the Millenium Falcon and saves the day at the end, yelling "Yahoo! your all clear kid!' I get goosebumps. I feel like I'm 12 years old all over again watching it in the theater with my older brother. I KNOW Han is gonna save the day, but every time I watch it I always wonder if Luke is gonna make it. Its truly a classic scene ranking with the best ever. Lucas does such a fine job with the DeathStar battle it still has me on the edge of my seat 13 years later. 10/ 10.

What about the prequels? They're part of the series too. ;)

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

I don't hate them, nor do I think they are terrible. Though, there are several notable issues with them (such as revealing that cosmic, wondrous Force is nothing more than germs), and... Jar Jar Binks. :-(

But, I'll leave it to The Distressed Watcher to better explain. ;)

But, I will say that none of the prequels are as horrible as the disturbance of "The Star Wars Holiday Special". :x

I liked 'em, too! I grew up with the original trilogy; I enjoyed the prequels. Everytime I give the original and prequel trilogies a spin, I find something new to appreciate.



Oh, then there's this (rumor, so far) on the planned live-action tv show:

lack of likeable characters, characters lacking common sense, idiots reading "their" polotics into them, George Lucus has to much control, etc....

prequil era books and comics are way better
