Think of Europe in the good old, bad old days, when Rome was at it's height...then came the dark ages. Well, that's how I try not to let the yucky CGI overdose ruin it for me.NEIL said:Judging by the trailer which I saw at LORD OF THE RINGS, the new Star Wars looks like a bloody love story. Sorry, it just isn't the same...and as far as I am concerned, these new Star Wars films a too high tech looking to be prequels.

You should see that other trailer which makes AOTC look like a cool action and adventure movie. It was called 'Mystery' and can be found on the net and downloaded along with what I understand is the new trailer for TV called 'Clone War'.NEIL said:Judging by the trailer which I saw at LORD OF THE RINGS, the new Star Wars looks like a bloody love story.

I'm sure it's a preference thing - Samurai preferred the Japanese Sabres such as Katanas, and lets face it, Vader does look like a black helmeted Samurai.NEIL said:
No, it's time. ANH couldn't have been made today, just as AOTC couldn't have been made in 1977. It's a bit like Doctor Who in the 80s, all that continuity to think about and tie in here and there. So, yeah, it's time and Star Wars itself that are the 'problem' (if that's how you see it), not George Lucas (not that I'm defending him!).Rich said:Star Wars used to be so much better! What has happened to George Lucas? Is it the money? The Power? Piles?
I don't enjoy slagging off the films because the original ones meant a lot to me when they came out. It just upsets me that he can spend all that money and effort and not get actors who can act, and writers who can write a decent script. It's perverse. I will say nothing about AOTC as I haven't seen it yet, but with Ewan McGregor still in it, I'm not expecting much.August Verango said:Basically, I think it's a bit sad that people seem to actually like slagging the last two Star Wars films. That's all they're really interested in, because it's perceived as cooler not to like Star Wars than to rave about it.
