Haven’t seen the Ewok movies yet because I haven’t managed to brew the right kind of pine-cone moonshine to go with them.

Just put a plastic bag over your head for five minutes and you’re good.

I want to be naked, running through the streets.
I want to invite this so-called chaos you think I dare not be.
I want to be weightless, flying through the air.
I want to drop all these limitations and return to what I was born to be.

  1. The Empire Strikes Back
  2. Rogue One
  3. A New Hope (Rogue One and ANH are very close for me)
  4. Return of the Jedi
  5. The Force Awakens
  6. Clone Wars Micro Series
  7. Revenge of the Sith (this one fluctuates… sometimes I feel it’s the worst SW film even though it’s the most watchable of the PT because they Anakin’s “turn” is completely ridiculous and that’s the most important part of the PT)
  8. The Phantom Menace
  9. Attack of the Clones (This movie literally makes zero sense - the plot is full of nonsensical contradictions and coincidences)

I will say that I’ve tried to like the PT, but I just find them mediocre. I don’t think they are horrible dreck like say Jupiter Ascending, but they are definitely mediocre.

They’re not mediocre. They’re bad.

I don’t think they are bad like say Jupiter Ascending or Iron Man 3.

But I suppose they are definitely Hobbit bad. Actually those Hobbit films are probably a good comparison.

No, the Hobbit films have good performances, dialogue that doesn’t make you want to gouge your eyes out, and a competent director.

There are some good performances in the PT (personally I think the direction/script is 90% of the problem… Even Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor struggle in some scenes with the material they are given).

However, now that you mention it the Hobbit does have better dialogue…although like the PT many of the characters are poorly done and I just don’t care about most of them. I think the actor direction is better in the Hobbit, but the action scenes are just as stupid and boring as much of the PT. The Hobbit films also have the same tonal consistency issues that the PT has (particularly during the action sequences).

You are probably correct that the Hobbit films are somewhat better in execution, but I think they do share some of the same issues and honestly I find them horribly boring and sometimes harder to sit through than the PT (well other than AOTC, which is very, very hard to sit through). High level - the Hobbit films were very disappointing and the reason I was making the comparison is that they were made as prequels to the excellent LOTR films.

I’d rather watch the PT than, say, the Transformers movies. But I’d also rather watch Jupiter Ascending than the PT.

OMG… are you serious? Jupiter Ascending is one of the worst films I have ever seen.

I’d probably rather watch the Transformers movies than Juper Ascending

I haven’t seen it yet, but it sounds so batshit insane and it’s already got such an extreme reputation that I’m really legitimately curious. I’m sure I won’t want to watch it again, but if you sat me down tomorrow and had me choose between those three things, I’m going with Jupiter Ascending.

I’d rather watch Jupiter Ascending than Bay-Transformers or the PT, simply because I haven’t seen that movie before and at least it’d be something new.

And Rogue One is better than all of them. I cannot begin to comprehend the mindset that it’s worse than any of those.

EDIT: What Joe said.

you ever just squint so hard that the aspect ratio changes?

HA - well I will warn you that (if you ever watch it) that it’s not “fun bad”… it’s “bad bad”

Speaking of “fun bad”… one of the new Netflix MST3K episodes parodies the 1978 movie Star Crash. It’s probably the most hilariously bad Star Wars ripoff I have ever seen… and as a bonus stars David Hasselhoff.

I have a Star Crash poster framed in my living room.

Sure, makes perfect sense.

And RO is worse than all of them by a wide margin…apparently.

You get so mad and cry because you think people post over and over again about how bad the Disney movies are, but then here you are. Every time a new poster comes along to tell you how bad they are, you get mad and cry about it. Post after post after post. Literally not one poster can say a negative thing about these movies without you and the posse chiming in.

Your fondness of these terrible movies is apparently not without a lot of insecurity.

I missed it… does TFA involved Darth Vader turning to the darkside because he was a gullible idiot who had some bad dreams? Does it involve one of the worst romance stories in film history? Does it involve dialogue that is sometimes worse than B-movie level?

Yes, Starkiller base is stupid… but so were the Ewoks. Personally I think the OT and Rogue One are better than TFA… but TFA is not that much worse than ROTJ. I think it’s a good movie and entertaining to watch.

I can’t even sit through AOTC. IF anyone honestly thinks TFA is that bad please try actually sitting down and watching AOTC all the way through

And that’s the point I was making about Rogue One as well. If you don’t like either TFA or RO, that’s fine. If you prefer to watch the PT to those two movies, ok that’s your prerogative. But if you think the PT is better made, or do something insane like give the PT a 5/10 and RO a 1/10, you’re just trolling for reactions. So congratulations.

Episode I: The Ridiculous Menace / Episode II: Attack Of The Ridiculousness / Episode III: Revenge of the Ridiculousness
