Isn't it strange how the Prequels got massive hate at release yet when you watch them now you realize they're even better than the OT? We would've gotten more George kino in 7 through 9 if people didn't bitch so much. All this terrible deconstruction of the franchise currently really comes down to George giving up after the negative reception of something, frankly, people weren't ready to appreciate. People were less willing to see the corruption of our society during the Bush era and that's the most interesting part of the Prequels, the good guys are in charge of the galaxy and corruption and villainy still persist.

    Fan reception to the Prequels is probably why cinema is so shit now tbh. Why do something new when fanboys are just gonna scream at you until you show them the same old shit they've seen a million times before?
    If they want bland fanservice over and over and over then fuck it, that's what they'll get

      Well, if you do something new and it's shitty you shouldn't be told that it's good. You're an idiot.

        What does that have to do with the Prequels?

          They're awfully written and poorly directed soulless cartoons made by a lazy, aging director who suffered the same curse as others from his generation when they got access to new technology.

            I used to like the Prequels but this sound analysis by a random internet shitposter finally made me see the light. Thanks anon!

      What I'm most curious about is how George would've portrayed the sequel trilogy and it's aesthetics. In the OT the Empire being in control has the world in a rugged declining sort of state while the Republic was clean and futuristic. And since Lucas has stated how he likes to make everything new for each movie I wonder how Ep7 was going to look.

      Prequels were worthy and filled with value.

      Only way these statements can be considered is if you n-words explain why you feel this way, and even then I expect it’s just gonna be some subjective “*i* didn’t like em!!!” tripe
      But go ahead

        It's funny how Disney tried to cash in with OT bait right when people realized the Prequels were actually good.

          In many cases this happened due to disney giving guys like RLM what they wanted. And it turned out to be soulless shit, pandering and fan service
          But prequel appreciation started before that. They are movies that hold up even to this day, if you can open up for them.

          And I’m not talking about ironic appreciation like what happens on Reddit
          The actual drama, characters, aesthetics, music, war, action etc is very much worth a watch.
          They are well made movies that spark discussion even to this day.
          People can’t stop thinking about them, even detractors.
          A truly bad movie would’ve been forgotten in a year. Gone the way of “Avatar” or any of the best picture Oscar winners the last decade.

      Gee I wonder what was happening in America at the time of the Prequels release that made the media give them a negative perception???

        It’s more got to do with the way mutts lionize franchises and hype up cinema/tv etc
        Franchises become a way of life, people buy all the products and become a “starwars guy” or a “playstation guy” and then defend or attack those things until death
        Lucas insulted those guys gravely by attempting to round out starwars, giving much needed backstory and explaining how things worked and why certain things happened.
        This created a massive trauma that “fans” were unable to cope with- even 20 years down the road they are fucked and can’t cope.

    I remember watching them as a kid multiple times and thinking they were on-par with the original trilogy, but had a different sort of theme and setting.
    Then years later, I found out you're supposed to hate them and I just shrugged because I never hated them. I actually ended up rewatching them and understanding the story properly, which made me respect the films even more because I never looked at them through a political/real world lens as a kid.

    If anything i hated them twice as much now, the shitty cgi hasn't aged well, you noticed new plot holes and dumb dialog. Just let it die man, be free of this thing.

    I don't really get the hate towards Lucas tbh. If a guy can't make his own movies in his own original universe at his own studio that he personally founded in a way that he wants to, then what the fuck CAN he do?
    The word entitled gets thrown at fans a lot lately but I can't think of another word for this phenomenon

      I hate Lucas for precisely one thing, and that's refusing to release the OT in original form – which any other director would have the dignity to do when putting out a director's cut. The fucker wasn't even willing even give an unfucked copy of Star Wars to the Library of Congress.
