I thought the prequels were pretty good.  I hated jar jar (but so did evryone else).  I thought the third prequel wa probably the best of the prequels and I may even say that chapter 3 was better then chapter 6.  I hated the teddy bears.

>In the special features section of EP II, Lucas specifically tells S. Jackson that the good guys have blue and green, badguys have red, but Jackson still requests his be purple

>Ok, i will have to check that out, but if you think about it, Lucas is contradicting himself here as he, having signed off on any and all written publications that are made for Star Wars, has already acknowledged that lightsabers can be more then just three colors. Maybe he should have been less concerned about the royalties and more about maintaining canon if he wanted to keep the three color system.

>Thats your big evidence lostshaker? though you are right that it is open for interpretation, if you got something about lightsaber colors from that then, with all due respect, "Nuts you are!" (i know not exactly the way Yoda would have said it, but oh well).

>I want a story that better fits the unaltered original trilogy, because that's the only one I care about.

>And that is your choice, but if you are going to debate star wars, as much as i hate to admit it, you have to take into consideration episodes 1-3 and the UE.

On point three, if we debate Star Wars I'll certainly rely on 1-3 & what's on screen... But Ali's thread presupposes a dislike of the latest trilogy and is appealing to those desiring an alternative to it. The nature of the thread leans away from debate of the existing Star Wars, except when Ali posts her alternative for a comparison.


On point two, I didn't get the lightsaber symbolism from that one line. It melded with what was shown on screen and the mysticism of the force. But again, Lucas took a more scientific approach to the latest movies and fizzled out the phantasy.  The great thing about the original movies was that it left a lot open to interpretation whereas the new ones don't. They suffer for it. Although I feel they were a waste of my time, I'm happy for all those who enjoyed the latest movies.

Well, I love both SW and ST... in fact, just yesterday I was watching "Return of the Jedi". Its a boss film. Mr favourite movies are the original trilogy... but I do not hate the prequels, I really enjoyed them all - and yes, even "The Phantom Meanace" had its moments in my opininion... DON"T FRAKKING REDO THEM - It is Lucas's universe and he is intitled to make it like he wants it to be. I thought he tied the two trilogys in really well, "Revenge of the Sith" answered alot of questions I had... and that fight scene between Obiwan-Anakin was so boss. Long live the Empire! (oh, wait thats STMirrorUniverse... lol)

I like Star Wars. My love of Star Trek does not blind me to enjoying other shows as well. I am a huge fan of The X-Files and love it as much as Trek.


When it comes to Star Wars, rather than any more prequel type things - Clone Wars etc., I'd like to see Lucas round off his project with a sequel to the original trilogy (i.e. parts 4,5,6) set many years after Return of the Jedi.


The beauty of this is that he could persuade Carrie Fisher, Mark Hammill and Harrison Ford to reprise their roles as older versions of themselves (which they would be - and of course happen to be in real life).


There has to be some mileage in seeing what happened and if they did all live happily ever after...

That would be good, perhaps something that ties in with the EU. though i don't think that we will see Mark, Carrie, and Harrison together agian for such a project as they have changed too much over the last twentysome years to still match their characters.

Well, they are supposed to be making a Star Wars live action television series based in between "Revenge of the Sith" and "A New Hope";       http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Wars_live-action_TV_series


I'm looking forward to it!

In this Live-Action TV series, theres meant to be some of the minor characters seen throughout the movies (Bail Organa, Mon Montha, Boba Fett etc) and it will probably not focus on the Jedi which will be interesting.


This is what George Lucas said to some magazine company,


"It's kind of like Episode IV — it's funny and there's action, but it's [a] lot more talky. It's more of what I would call a soap opera with a bunch of personal dramas in it. It's not really based on action-adventure films from the '30s — it's actually more based on film noir movies from the '40s!"
So that should make us Trekkies happy, as most of us prefer the whole drama/spaceopera frak.

I love the Ewoks. They forwarded the symbolism of nature and simplicity over industrialism, and were thus in accordance with how the Force seemed to be originally described.

Avatar is better second time around I thought, but it is a far cry from the best film ever. It is hugely predictable but still somewhat enjoyable. I bought the DVD for my son who liked it at the cinema and we watched it again recently. It is defo better with repeated viewings, more probably because you concentrate on the detail rather than the story.


Roger Dean should be suing Cameron anyway, as any Yes, Asia or Osibisa fans would recognise...
