Topic: Old or New Trilogy?

Out of the two Star Wars Trilogies, which do you prefer? I personally love the old Star Wars Trilogy, it has a lot more meaning to me than the new trilogy and most of all one Boba Fett! big_smile

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

Well, I like both a lot. They are pretty even for me. But if I'd have to choose, I would choose the Classic Trilogy. It has more emotian and feeling than the prequel trilogy. It also has a lot more of a neutral side to the Star Wars Galaxy.

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

While the prequels started to get cool from the point that Darth Maul appears in the Theed Hanger near the end of Ep.1, the Classic Trilogy is easily hands-down the better of the two. The prequels also ruined some of the mystery that Boba Fett had, and he deserved to either have stayed a mystery or been given a much more rich (and better acted) history... perhaps it will be dealt with a little more in next years TV series... one can only hope...

I agree with Mel. It is interesting how the first part of the trillogy casts aspects of the second part in a different light.

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

I love them both. I wonder if years from now people will look at SW as a Saga instead of an Old and a New? lol, that's just something my BF says a lot.

I actually never hear people say "Old" and "New". (Until now.) I always heard it "Original" (or "Classic") and "Prequel".

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

Well, yeah, me too. I was mainly using the words they used. I do that sometimes, if someone calls it one thing I call it that back to them.

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

I like the Original best because of the story, but I do love Darth Maul in the new ones.

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

Oh, yes, Maul's really cool!! I think his journal's the first EU I bought, or one of the first. And I gladly bought Shadow Hunter, although now I think it's depressing, it does show off Maul a lot. And I used to try to copy his saber fighting with a long bo my dad gave me.

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

Ooh, have you read Star Wars Tales #28?  One of the stories was about a five-yr-old Darth Maul, which is just wrong on so many levels.  (Hey, we're online at the same time, yet at opposite sides of the country.  One of the few times when we could actually benefit from having a chat room.)

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

I don't remember, I prolly do have Tales 28 laying around here somewhere. But if I do I haven't read it yet. But it'd be cool to read that story! lol

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

Well, I prefer the 'Classic' because it's what I saw and fell in love with as a young kid. The prequels sometimes have a choppy feeling to them, not to mention the all too occasional lame dialogue ("This party's over!") and a few cliche moments... And I don't think I have to mention the infamous Darth Vader "NOOOOO!" tongue
Now, I'm not saying I completely dislike the 'Prequels.' They do have fantastic visuals.

Out of curiousity, what's wrong with the Vader-Noo in ROTS? I never found a problem with it...

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

I'd have to go with the original trilogy.

Well, at least he didn't get down on one knee and clench his fist to the sky... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.... you must admit, it was pretty cheesy....

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

What was wrong with it?  I don't know, just that it was the same kind of thing you'd see in a parody cartoon....  But it was my favorite part of the movie (except for "Master Anakin, we're surrounded, what will we do?!")

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

I thought the it was a little cheesy at first, but after the 5th time it started to grow on me. I think it is fine now.

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

Ugh. I never have felt more embarrased to be a Star Wars fan the moment I was in the movie theater hearing Darth Vader scream "NOOOO!" It seemed so awful and it's been done before too many times... In Spiderman 2 they had Doc Oc scream out "Noooo" when the robot arm things on his back took over his mind. Guess what, it didn't work either...

Well, the real thing that makes it different from Obi-Wan or Luke's "NOOOO!!!" was the fact that you couldn't see the expression on his face behing the mask. That is what makes it seem more corny... At least, that is what I think...

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

Ooh, good theory.  I hadn't thought of that before.  It really makes a lot of sense.

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

What would you have rather he'd done? Gone, "YAY My wife is dead, along with the child/children I would have had, my love is gone, my friends are dead, better yet, I myself killed my wife, oh, and since everything that was good in my life is now dead I'm all alone except for having you. Oh, I'm so happy." The "No" makes sense to me.

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

Yeah, Anakin was only in the first stages of being a Sith Lord. He was much more of Anakin than Darth Vader in Episode V. The entire reason he became a Sith was to help Padme, and in doing so, he ended up destroying her. That's not something you would just say "Oh well." to...

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

Still it could have been done better, it was so Frankinstein. I'm amazed ol' Palpy wasn't screaming "It's alive, alive!"

Mind you the Rise of Darth Vader novel is brilliant in showing how Anakin slowly fades out of Vader. I really enjoyed that book.

Re: Old or New Trilogy?

Rise of Vader? I don't think I heard of that book, when did it come out? lol, I thought I was keeping a good track of what was coming out.

I never actually saw any Frankenstein movies (or even trailers or clips, I've only seen one small clip), I only read the book, so maybe that's why I'm fine with the no.

It was very recent... It is the sequel to Revenge of the Sith. You can probably find it at whatever book store you go to. I have it, yet I haven't gotten to reading it yet...
