I’m sure by now EVERYONE(even Patton Oswalt) has heard of the great Machete Order, but that order has one humongous problem : Why do you need to watch Attack of the Clones AGAIN? Unless you’re an OT die hard, you probably think Revenge of the Sith isn’t that bad a movie. So I have a solution for the people who have already seen all the Star Wars movies and sorta like ROTS :
- Star Wars(1977)
- The Empire Strikes Back
- Revenge of the Sith
- Return of the Jedi
No romantic dialouge about sand. Absolutely no Jar Jar besides a cameo. All the benefits of the Machete Order. The reason I decided to skip AOTC is because all it is is setup for ROTS. Really bad setup. Even if his romance with Padme is Anakin’s reason for going evil, it’s so butchered that skipping it is actually better. You already know that Palpatine is the Emperor so you might as well just skip to the movie where it’s revealed he’s the Emperor. Aside from just watching the OT with Harmy’s Despecialized Editions, this is the best way for Star Wars veterans to enjoy Star Wars IMO. Revenge of the Sith really isn’t that bad, and its Blu Ray release is the best of the bunch. Watch it in this order and your body will be ready for The Force Awakens.
