[…] I was actually softening a little in my heart on my stance against the prequels. I was even vaguely considering watching them again at some point.
Oh boy, the “giving-the-Prequels-one-more-chance” thing. That comes in my mind from time to time too. I have not seen the Prequels for quite a while now in order to forget them as good as possible. But on the other hand, i’m saying to myself: Hey, they can’t be that bad? Let’s rewatch them completely open-minded. I did this two times in the past … but those movies are not getting better
I made the mistake a few years ago of falling into the “maybe I’ll give them just one more go” trap. No, they were worse than I remembered. After that I physically threw the DVDs in the trash so I may never again be tempted. My household is officially prequel-free.
