    This is a good Star Wars sight that gives the story lines of episodes 7,8,9.

    It would be nice if someone produced these movies on a lesser scale than 1,2,3. We do not need all of the specials effects. We could get by with them toned down as in 4,5,6.

    You're right. The Return of the Jedi novelisation, by James Kahn, was the first novel I ever read - and I read the book before seeing the film. Great stuff!!

    Just saw Revenge of the Sith a few days ago. Oh boy.
    Bad dialouge, unbelieveably naive characterisation, criminally simplistic plot.

    But, given the sheer look and spectacle of the movie (plus my childhood prejudice and enduring wish to see the moment of Darth Vader's creation...) I still enjoyed it.

    May the Force help me.

    My favorite is the original trilogy. The nonbutchered version.
    The prequal trilogy sucked major ass compared to the original. Especially Episode 3. It was the worst of them all.

    A good movie has alot to do with the chemistry, personality, and screen presense of the character cast.
    The original series always had a team that always worked together constantly throught the trilogy with the added comic relief of r2d2 and c3po. The chemistry is great, and there is always witty dialogue. The dialogue in the prequal trilogy was crap.

    In the first episode, Han chases the storm troopers down the hall, and the nevxt thing you know he's running away from them. They rescue the pricess by dressing up as storm troopers with a wookie captive. They go in, kick ass, and shoot out the cameras. Han solo tells the officer everything is fine on the radio. When they get surrounded the pricess of all people grabs lukes gun, shoots the garbage hole, and jumps in. Then there is the whole situation of getting the droids to stop the trash compactor. They cheer when it stops, and c3po thinks they are screaming in agony.

    At the beginning of empire strikes back, the officer warns han solo not to go outside. Han tells him that it is his friend out there. The officer tells han he will freeze to death. Han tells him then I will see you in hell. The next day or something, the snowspeeder is searching for han and luke, calling them on the radio. Han greets them goodmorning nice of you to drop by.

    Return of the jedi starts with an elaborate plan to rescue han solo. when they meet up again, they give their witty remarks, and deal with jaba the hut and the whole situation. Then there is the scene when they are handing off of the vehicle about to be eaten by the pit monster, and han solo wants to shoot the tongue. There was a ton of real good wit, teamwork, and humor in the first trilogy. That is what makes a movie fun to watch.

    The prequal trilogy was just jar jar blabbering about. Complete protagonist and character rearangements throughout the series. No decent dialogue. Leim crappy ass Neeson. The worst of them all was ep 3 with the biggest fLIcking kindergarten storyline. "Oh by the way, I'll take the girl. We always wanted to adopt a little girl." Do you just not want to puke all over that stupidity?


    I wrote a possible idea for a prequal where there was a team of Anikin and Kenobi as partners not master/apprentice. Yoda was the teacher of all the Jedi Knoghts. Jedi's were not some council or ambasadors, but knights in a clone war. Kenobi rises to be general. Sir Organa rises to be a senator of Alderan and leader of the republic. Anikin and Kenobi along with luke/leia's mother and 3 other new characters form a team, and go on lots of adventures together constantly saving eachother's lives. R2, C3PO, and Chewbacca are minor cameos, and not major characters. The story of Han's past before he was born somehow gets tied in. There is a cameo of cloud city and Lando's past before he was born. Anikin is not some super powerful jedi, but just another regular knight that got seduced by the power of the dark side. The jedi's do get hunted down and killed, but not as easy and gay as they did in ep3.

    I recant my post about the Supershadow site. I discovered that he is a big fraud and he really does not know George Lucas at all.

    I'd say episode 1 was the worst. 2 was better than 3 on the whole.

    Episodes 2 and 5 were my personal favorites with episode 4 a close third. I just could not visualize Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader. I do think he did a good job as Anakin though. Some people think he is a bad actor but as Anakin he was supposed to be confused and unsure about himself. That is what led to the dark side. I thought his style was perfect for the role.
