Star wars prequel haters hit a new level of low.

Forums - Movies Discussion - Star wars prequel haters hit a new level of low.

okay, so i was discussing some things on the internet, and i have a couple of friends who agree with me that the prequels are good movies. Now take in account star wars episode 3 is my fave movie of all time. But even the mindless prequel haters agreed that the lightsaber fights in the prequels were awsome. But now comes a whole new level of pathetic xD they start to bash on it too, saying it looks clownish, and tooo choreographed. Seriously? Do you know jedis? they are trained since young kids, in lightsaber combat, they have the force. and the lightsaber fights looked awsome in the prequels, but what dont they do to give another reason to hate on those movies xD

They are also saying, original had more emotional lightsaber fights, so on and so forth. Dont get me wrong, i love the originals, Episode 6 is my second fave movie. But it sounds very very try-hard to make an convincing argument. It feels like they are just saying that to protect the originals and to bash more on the prequels. Prequel haters are preatty much brainwashed by media and weird arguments told by nostalgic adults imo.

Though there are some actual critisms that are fair enough. Jar jar binks might be one. 

idk if these forums are like the other ones regarding this topic (i hope not).

If so, can someone give me a valid intelligent counter argument that actually makes sense. And it might seem i have a slight bias or something, but i really dont. I love all star wars movies the same, and if i see a valid critism against any of the movies, ofc i probably agree with it. but for now, i think all 6 movies are preatty much flawless.

The third episode is really good and the only one on par with episode four and five imo. The light saber fights though, are on a whole other level in the newer films. The thing with jedis is that their senses are extremely heightened, making the fights of course look more fluid and impressive than a normal sword fight. The problem in the older movies is that they didn't have the resources to make those fight as they should be. They are really disappointing compared to what a Jedi should be capable of.

In Episode 7 it will be a bit of a mix. As Luke never had this sword combat training and Jedi pretty much are legends the fights will be rougher (logic development). However they shouldn't be all gone as martial arts can be learned and combined with the force fluid fights will happen

PS4 will sell 25 million units before 31st of March!

Edit: I didn't state what year! HAHA, so I'm still right in some sense

Fight sabers does look cool and the war parts in the prequels are more impressive visually. As a kid I loved the prequels and I still like them, but going back you can now see how cringe worthy a lot of the acting is. They are still good movies, but lacks the charm from the original trilogy



All 6 movies are very much flawed, but that's the only part of your comment I have issue with. I love the Star Wars movies but objectively they're all (minus Empire) pretty average if not worse than that. But I'm not gonna say anything more because this thread is about to explode with OT fanatics tearing you to shreds for liking something different.



You should check out my YouTube channel, The Golden Bolt!  I review all types of video games, both classic and modern, and I also give short flyover reviews of the free games each month on PlayStation Plus to tell you if they're worth downloading.  After all, the games may be free, but your time is valuable!

While I will say I'm of the opinion that they're very bad movies (not even as a Star Wars fan--just as a movie fan) you're right that that's a new low. There was nothing wrong with the light saber fights. They were just as neat as you would hope.



As a kid, I never even knew the prequels were so criticized and actually really liked them.



This isn't a new argument, and one i actually agree with to an extent. While i don't dislike the prequel films as much as many others do (and think the 3rd is actually quite good), the lightsaber sequences were a pretty mixed bag. I thought some were great, while others made me cringe pretty hard.

It's fine if you personally think all the prequels are great, but calling those that dislike them a lot 'mindless prequel haters' and 'brainwashed by the media' is stepping across the line. It's possible to disagree with someone without insulting them and establishing yourself as superior.

On a side note, this topic gives me an excuse to post this: https://youtu.be/J0mUVY9fLlw It's obviously exaggerated for comedic effect, but it still makes me giggle.



I like the prequels more than the originals. If that means people hate me, I'm fine with that.



Ask stefl1504 for a sig, even if you don't need one.

How can you say episodes 3 and 6 are you favorites, then turn around and say you love all Star Wars movies the same? I can't grasp that logic.
