What do you think is better? Personally I like the prequels better becuase:
a) they have better effects
b) they are more exciting
c) better characters
d) more intense fights
e) watch the mysterys of the upcoming dystopia unravel
f) see how George Lucas works when he tells a more complicated story

Episode III will be the btter of them all. I like the prequals better too, because of the graphics and stuff. The Original Trilogy had the most story to it, though.

actually the sequels had virtually no story at all. George Lucas even admitted it. but now with the prequels it makes them look like they have a story. I'd like to add that the prequel storyline is extremely welldone.

I like the ESB the best. I think it had the best storyline and the most action of the orignal trilogy. I will give Episode 2 as the best action so far in a SW movie,but the actors were not very good at all I think. I think the original trilogy is better than the prequels.

Hard to say, I like them all so much. ANH had great intro for starwars and a sweet star fighter battle against the death star. RoTJ had saber fighting, star fighters, surface fights, and oh yeah ewoks (wookies would have been better).

The prequels kept it the same and enhanced all the lightsaber fighting and special effects. Simply awesome.

I personlaly think that the Prequels are better. With how far Technology has come its impossible to no be better than what was there before. Its like if George decides to make a movie 10 years from now... It would dwarf whatever the Prequels had to offer. The prequels are the best so far, as far as I'm concerned.

ditto. I always don't understand why people hate the prequels just cus they use CG. It's just a new way to make movies. It's the most advanced thing now just as the way Lucas made back then. He has always used the greatest technology available.

If George Lucas had the technology back in the 70's and 80's , he would have made the OT look exactly like the prequels. The NT is the way he always wanted SW to be like. This doesnt mean the OT suck. The OT is awsome too. The effects were revolutionary for their time.

I find it amusing that the "best" movie is the one that is yet to be released.

I liked the OT better because I think the characters were deeper and more memorable. the Prequels seem to replace depth of character with flashy fights and stunning scenes/costumes [which I love mind you]. But as far as movies go, you gotta have characters.

Yep, nothing is more true. The characters played in the prequels felt almost hollow, as if the whole thing had been rushed and not enough time spent on developing the thoughts and feelings of the characters, and discuss how they would be presented on screen. In this way, I for instance think that Luke is a greater character than say Anakin.

That's just my opinion - don't put me down man!
