The most pathetic drivel about the prequels i have ever read.

The guy is so warped, I wouldn't be shocked if it was written, or prodded, by Lucas himself. That's all Lucas has to say about those shitty films, "They mirror each other like poetry, it's stylistic and bold."

"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas

1) Gesture mirrors: “Star Wars: Episode IV” begins with a Blockade Runner that has obviously just escaped a blockade, and “Phantom Menace” begins with a (too) similar ship approaching a blockade, willingly entering it.

Wow... symbolism based on guessing something not in the movie based on knowing the name of a ship when the name never appears in the movie.

 

Also, Obi-Wan and Darth Maul (under all the makeup) are dead ringers

They are?

 

 

Much later, as I began to consider certain very strange scenes in the new trilogy, I realized that they were all elements of a hidden story, adding up to a precise opposite of the original trilogy

This article is like The Da Vinci Code of crap!

I agree with Lucas here. It is stylistic and bold. Pity it's also crappy.

Hmm, reusing the same ideas, themes, situations and images from previous movies in later sequels to said movies while also taking them in new and different directions. How novel. Know what they call that in the real world?

A franchise.

"When George went back and put new creatures into the original Star Wars, I find that disturbing. It’s a revision of history. That bothers me."

--James Cameron, Entertainment Weekly, April 2010

This one is my favorite:

Even basic plot gestures are mirrored. Vader wants her alive; Sidious wants them dead.

SUBVERSIVE!

Great article. I still don't understand why some fans hate the star wars prequels and the Special Editions of the original trilogy some fans say it destroyed the star wars series and their memories of star wars. It did'nt for me their some changes I don't like like greedo shooting 1st and the 1st CGI Jabba in 97 but it did'nt take away from my enjoyment of the films.

Again, you make it so easy.

I was'nt talking to you TV's Frink I try to be nice to everyone here but everytime I make an opinion you guys make fun of my posts. I understand people have different opinions of the OT vs SE's vs prequels I know I can't change that. Everyone has a right to their own opinion.

Wouldn't the mirroring idea work better if Dooku had convinced Anakin to join him?

Since they're like poetry, what with the rhyming and all, I find that I only need to watch three out of the six films.

The L.A. Times squelched my comment. Even after I verified my email per their request.

Guess they don't dig the truth because it exposes their "guest essay" for the fanboy masturbation that it is.

Although I can guess it's general topic, what was your comment?

There's no worse argument than removing counter-arguments.

Lame.
