I’ve not seen the ‘first’ three yet either.
I’ve seen bits of them whenever they’ve been on the telly. But the special effects, in my opinion, where better in the originals, and the acting is woeful.
Maybe it’s the fact I first seen the originals when I was about 5 though. Perhaps that is the only difference?Posted 4 years agounknownSubscriber
I don’t like star wars so I’m not sure why I was even there, but attack of the clones (episode 2?) is by far and away the worst film I’ve ever seen at the cinema. Plot, dialogue, acting… just awful. Don’t get what the fuss is about with the originals either, but I guess I’m too young for them and too old for the newer ones.Posted 4 years agocooganMember
The new films have nothing in comparison to the original three as far as I’m concerned. They may explain some story lines but with the CGI littered all over them (which has dated very quickly) everyone looks like they are walking about with no idea what the scenery behind them looks like.
And the biggest problem, for me anyway, no Han Solo. Not him as such, but no character with a cocky arrogant ‘**** it, shoot first!’ attitude. He was the ‘dude’ of the whole film series for me! But the new ones didn’t have any of that arrogance and humour that character had, felt like I was watching a Shakespeare play in some scenes.
And finally, most importantly. No Millennium Falcon. Well, apart from one teeny weeny background of it. Best space craft EVER!Posted 4 years agoVern0nMember
4 – a great film
5 – as awesome as it gets. Nice and dark too!
6 – commercial but acceptable, with some great stuff too
1 & 2 – utter drivel. Not resemblance to 4/5/6
3 – could have been worse
Totally agree that of all the FX, it is the newer stuff which looks totally duff. All the original effects still look fantastic. The special edition versions’ added CGI completely detracted form the film. Less is more and all that. Don’t even get me started on the acting…Posted 4 years agoJunkyardMember
Poor in what way?
Asking the yoofs who grew up watchin 1-3 the view seems to be
1-3 better effects and more watchable but limited plot
3-6 Good stories but dated
Everyone agree Jar jar is a **** and 1 is the worst
The Ewoks are dire
C3P0 is awful in all of them
1 & 2 look like they were done for the merchandising tbhPosted 4 years ago
3 is the best of the new ones
The effects – CGI in all 3 are greatSanchoMember
i just realised watching the films recently how i can “let go” some of the special effects in the 4-6. But the thing that sets the two series apart is the realism of the 4-6, things like battered helmets, dirty greasy landing gear and vehicles, the whole thing has a realism, all the CGI in the latter films was too slick and clean and i just dont like them I loved the Family guy series though especially the bike chase and the gratuitous violence making the captured empire guys did their own graves with their helmetsPosted 4 years ago
