I've said for years Lucas was lucky... he had the right things happen at just the right time.

He's a great storyteller, he just sucks at everything else. Even the actors will admit that.

That said, the OT rules all. Episode 1 had too much "yipee" and Jar Jar, not enough Darth Maul (Maul was pretty b.a.).

That's what makes I-III so disappointing. Certain elements of it were so awesome, but the garbage ideas ruined the overall product.

Couldn't agree more. III was the best, but even it doesn't compare to the OT.

I was a huge HUGE SW's fan until the last 3 came out.

I was so amped for darth maul when it opened and sitting in the movie I remember thinking "holy crap this sucks."

It burned me so bad my views of the next two are forever jaded. I just can't like any of them.

I will probably take my son to this simply so he can see the pod racers 3d but it will be painful and I'm only do it for memories.

Lucas has become a hack.

maul should have been in all 3 as the main bad guy and threat, which allowed the emperor to need control and take power. then AS should have killed him and taken his spot.

He should have wiped out alot of jedi.

why create someone that cool and give him 8 minutes or so in the movie?

It also didn't help the Prequel triliogy that the Lord of the Rings trilogy came out around the same time and mopped the floor with it.

If you've not seen it, watch Plinkett's reviews of the prequel trilogy at Red Letter Media. They are hilarious yet at the same time I agree with pretty much all his criticisms of them.

On the one hand I thought the reveal that Stormtroopers were clones was kind cool even though in the original trilogy they clearly were not clones; but it also was disappointing because "The Clone Wars" always sounded so cool from the OT and yet to find out that is what they meant was kind of a letdown.

There's only a handful of things I think they got right in the Prequels:

1) Ewan McGregor cast as younger Kenobi was spot on, and I liked the casting of Liam Neeson as Qui-Gonn even though I felt he was wasted a bit.

2) Darth Maul, who was horribly wasted.

That's about it. 3 was the only decent one and that one isn't even that great, other than the music.

the fact that the stormtroopers are clones has been known since Episode IV was first released
