so far,

do you prefer Epiosde 7, 8 or the prequel trilogy?

in terms of pure entertainment and fun and personal investment

if you were to recommend star wars to your non-fan friends

would you recommend prequels or r Epiosde 7, 8 to get them hooked?

According to a stupendous, and un-f*cking-believable amount of people in various comment sections, TFA and TLJ are the worst things since the Black Death. And they killed Star Wars and really when you think about it, the PT isn't as bad as TLJ like OMFG.

PT is the better saga out of all trilogies; best actors of the saga act in them (Ewan, Ian and Liam); better action, and better story (Rise of Darth Sidious)

Lord Lucien
lol no

NT is by far the best trilogy two films in. I'd say Rots is great but the first two films in that trilogy were lackluster. I do love phantom menace for Maul but that still didn't save the quality of the film overall.

Lord Lucien
Selected key features of the PT notwithstanding, those films were tonal, visual, and emotional garbage. I'd hoped Star Wars was going to be left to wither and die on the Internet, but then Disney stepped in...


If they're going to keep it alive and god forbid do something a tad unexpected from what the average audience member (Joanne and Cletus) think will happen, then they're going about it in the right way. So far.

Yup... not prefect they are the NT movies, but way better than the PT.

Opinions vary so in the end I'll always go with mine. Seems the wisest choice.

shouldn't it be 'ST/Sequel Trilogy'?

Because I grew up with these films and they were a huge part of my childhoold, I will always prefer the PT because of sentimental value...not because I believe it's the best trilogy....however, as of now I believe that many aspects of Episode 8 currently stand as my favorite of them all.

queeq
Really??? Surprising.

To me: ESB forever!

Sith Master X
Yup. I loved what they did with Luke (mostly) and the final battle with Kylo I thought was beautifully done. Lots of people take issue with Luke vs Kylo because Luke didn't get to be "badass with his lightsaber." But when Yoda was badass in Attack of the Clones, everyone argued" Yoda should be "beyond" using a lightsaber. George sold out Yoda.

In Episode 8, Luke essentially does what we are taught in ESB, that a Jedi uses the force for knowledge and defense, never for attack. Hence the force projection is an aspect of 8 that make this one of my favorite scenes of the saga, and in all honesty, should tie in nicely to Yoda's lesson from the OT.

All for the PT. Best memes too.

imo the PT had the potential to be far greater and fell completely short, while the NT is better than i had anticipated; perhaps because of my drastically lowered expectations after the PT. whatever the case i like the new trilogy much more, but i have no motivation to highlight and defend it's merits since i didn't like it that much. to put it another way: if these were the first films released after the OT, i would probably have a less favorable opinion of them. yet currently i find TLJ to be a massive breath of fresh air.

Yeah, interesting pot. Think I agree.

Prequels for sure, I figured ST had the edge in hot women but then i remembered Natalie Portman in ep 2 so that advantage went out the window as well

I liked the PT more. The sequel trilogy is just too... I wanna say childish? Almost like it was made more for a young audience than us older Star Wars fans. Which makes sense for Disney financially, but is disappointing. Not to say I don't enjoy the new films, they just could be so much better.

as an old-old fan, from my point of view the PT fit the same description. childish and overly concerned with hooking the current generation of kids from toddlers to 20-somethings. however i saw RotJ when i was 9, so i wasn't particulary bothered by the childish things like ewoks, tarzan-calling, and burp gags. from a fresh perspective i might call the whole thing childish.

I guess you're right. I was thinking more of Episode III, which had a bit of a darker tone and is probably my favorite SW movie. But I definitely like the sequels more than TPM and AOTC now that I think about it.

PReqeuels are way better.

StiltmanFTW
Prequels.
