If Ed Wood had been a multi-millionaire with access to early 21st century VFX, he would’ve made movies of exactly the same quality.

That’s part of the charm of the prequels for me, honestly. The fact that they’re so unapologetically George’s movies, with all the good and bad that that entails. It’s preferable to movies that feel like they were made by a board room.

I wish more prequel fans thought this way, really. I can understand loving the prequels, warts and all. What I can’t fathom is the mentality that insists there are no warts.

Prequel Nostalgia
Time

I was 11, 14, and 17 when TPM, AOTC, & ROTS came out, the “right” age to enjoy them. I have absolutely zero nostalgia for any of them. I can’t think of a more grossly overrated set of movies if I tried. If Ed Wood had been a multi-millionaire with access to early 21st century VFX, he would’ve made movies of exactly the same quality.

Muxing up Movie quotes
Time

“Y’know, all my life I’ve been careful to stay in my own corner looking out for Number 1, no complications. Now suddenly I’m responsible for the entire fucking world! And everybody in this mother is trying to kill me, if — if — my head doesn’t blow up first.”

“Maybe it’s not just about you anymore.”

“Listen. You listen to me. You see that city over there? That’s where I’m supposed to be. Not down here with the dogs and the garbage and the fuckin’ last month’s newspapers blowing back and forth! I’ve had it with them! I’ve had it with you! I’ve had it with all this!”

I want room service! I want the club sandwich! I want the cold Mexican beer! I want a $10,000-a-night hooker!”

“I want my shirts laundered … like they do at the Imperial Hotel … in Tokyo.”

Oh BTW that avatar is magnificent.

Felt appropriate to give such a crappy character such a crappy hairstyle.

1,000% disagree. Anakin is a great character and his story is an incredibly tragic one.

The only thing I found tragic was Lucas’ filmmaking. But different strokes and all that jazz.

Plan 9 From Outer Space

Sadly, this one falls in my estimation every time I see it. The middle drags so much that it can hardly be enjoyed like the campy awful brilliance of the rest of the film. Ah well, at least the ending always makes me laugh.

Never understood this movie’s cult following. It’s just a bad movie. Not so-bad-it’s-good, not even Coleman Francis-level so-bad-it’s-horrible. Just average bad.

Frickin’ blacks, feminists, and queers. They all need to go back to Africa, the kitchen, and the closet. Tolkien is for the white, super-straight ubermensch. Cleanse Hollywood of degenerate art. Deus vult.

what a glorious strawman

I have zero patience for anti-SJWs. You can have legitimate grievances with Hollywood “progressivism” and express yourself accordingly. But if you start dropping “woke” pejoratively, spouting conservative rhetoric with no nuance, I’m taking the kid gloves off.

What is your personal canon?
Time

I still don’t have a personal canon. But if I did, it would include everything released 1976-1998, starting with the publication of the SW novelization, ending with the Hand of Thrawn duology. No prequels, no Yuuzhan Vong, no Darth Caedus or Krayt, and no Disney. Only Star Wars at its most organic and varied (though no less commercialized or messy).

Maybe an animated series of the entire Star Wars saga would be more interesting. To see classic events from the original films told from a different point of view, maybe from different characters too. With the goal of a 9 film series being written a lot more coherently.

This. Exactly This. I have always thought a traditional anime style retelling of the entire star wars saga would be fantastic. It would have to be done traditionally though, none of this CGI fake anime style. I would love the style of art to be similar to something along the lines of Neon Genesis Evangelion or Akira.

I don’t have a problem with anime, but I’d prefer a more western style. Something harkening back to '80s/'90s Saturday morning cartoons.
