Except I've been sleeping some. Tongue

It's fun seeing the movies again, though. Haven't had an actual marathon viewing of the movies in over a year.

I watched all six in order earlier this year. Probably won't do that ever again...

But what order, foo!

She's never watched them. We're doing it in an order I thought was interesting. Read it on the Star Wars board on IGN. You watch A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back... then you start watching Return of the Jedi up until a certain point (won't reveal details since she hasn't seen all of them yet...) then you watch the PT and pick back up where you stopped Return of the Jedi. So it's like you're watching the Original Trilogy, but then as things are finally being revealed to Luke you go back and see them as they happened, then jump back to real time in the OT.

I've seen all of them far too many times to consider watching any of them for a long time.

I have been deprived. Until Lox and I started watching them, I only saw one movie all the way through and parts of two other movies. I really liked the one I saw, but never got the chance to watch the others. Life at my parents house isn't too good....we don't get a lot of things.

Yea, but that has nothing to do with me not watching all the Star Wars movies.

I got you confused with a black person. I don't think they let them into theaters down there.

Black people in movie theaters......now that i think about it i don't recall ever seeing a black person in a movie theatre around here at all. I might pay attention next time i go to the movies to see if black people are there.

Me neither(seen Undercover Brother in Theater). I've seen plenty of black people in the Theater. There was a bunch there when I went to see Spiderman(all of them).

The only way to watch them is to go in this order:

Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi

and then try to ignore that the prequels even exist.

NO U

The prequels are cool. Not Talking I think they are pretty fun movies, especially Revenge of the Sith.

I admit, TPM and AOTC can drag on a bit and get boring at times, but I feel that way while watching the OT as well. They're two completely sets/types of movies. I guess they're just not for some. I don't really get all the hate.

Admittedly, TPM is a fun movie. I still like it, despite its shortcomings. AOTC was just terrible, and ROTS I've only seen once and didn't care enough about to wanna watch again. The "drama" in those movies, and Anakin's reasons for turning evil are just pathetic.

I also hate fat bastard George Lucas' notion that he's ALWAYS had these stories in mind. Star Wars (as it was originally titled--"A New Hope" wasn't tacked on until a few years later) was intended to be just one movie. It wasn't until its success that Fox demanded more and Lucas started writing new stories. And it's obvious that the prequels were written much later, after the man had already lost all his talent. (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is where this is evident.)

But, you know...I'm just a big fan of the original films. The prequels do nothing to cohesively sit alongside the originals. And when I say "originals," I mean the pre-Special Edition movies, before all the poorly-done CGI was added in. Lucas used to be a good filmmaker, but now finds it necessary to ruin all of his films by adding in all sorts of crap. The added effects in THX 1138 are a disaster, and it makes me even more angry that the original cut isn't available on DVD (and that the original Star Wars films are only on DVD in non-anamorphic, LaserDisc quality).

I'm surprised he didn't insert CGI drag-race scenes into American Graffiti. He did, however, slap on a very ugly CGI backdrop to the opening credit sequence, so his taintly fingers really do know no bounds.

Well... the Empire of Dreams documentary says that he was working on more of the story and only did a portion of it for the original film. I believe he had some idea of where the next 2 movies in the OT were going, but they weren't fully fleshed out.

As for the PT. It's possible that he did have something in mind, but didn't write them until the late 90s when he figured it was time to do something new with Star Wars. I won't try to say if it's because of technology, or he wanted more money, or what... because I don't. I just believe some of the ideas were always there, just not fleshed out like we saw them on the screen.

I personally don't really have a problem with Anakin's transformation. At first, it seemed a little iffy to me, but after I watced them a few times it just clicked with me and made sense.
