Re: Do you like the prequels

I like the story better.

Most of the acting and dialogue was better in the originals i admit but still the prequels had larger scale battle and i liked the story and characters more

Re: Do you like the prequels

Well the original trilogy has some things that are better than the prequels. Boba is better than Jango for example.

Re: Do you like the prequels

But then again prequels have some things better than originals.
e.g. The Lightsaber battles are more involving and more emotionally powerfull in the prequels
The Characters  though not acted as well are more interesting in the prequels
The prequels are more epic
And the clones are better than the stormtroopers

Lightsaber's battles more emotionally powerful?  I think not.  The originals are much more emotionally powerful.  Ben giving himself to the Force, Luke finding out his father is his dad and Vader being struck down by a rage-stricken Luke.

That is way more powerful to me.  Duel of the Fates is the only one that comes close.

Re: Do you like the prequels

Anakin and obi wan fight each other after being brothers(well not biologically) for 13 years. The closest of friends confront and have intentions of killing each other and Obi was words to Anakin as he burns are probably the most powerful lines of the whole saga.

And no ofense but how exactly is Duel of the fates more powerful than Obi vs Anakin.

Duel of the Fates is a pair of Jedi fighting someone they've never met

Anakin vs Obi is, well what i have said above

Re: Do you like the prequels

But thats nothing(well very small) compared to Anakin vs obi-wan

Am i the only one to find that emotionally powerfull?

"My luck ranges from barely tolerable to cataclysmic"

Re: Do you like the prequels

Oops.  Sorry about that.  Mind faster than the fingers.  You know what I mean.  But I wouldn't consider it very small.  Duel of the Fates was pretty much on the same level as Anikan's and Obi's (except for the fact that he had to kill him and he was the chosen one).  Duel of the Fates he watched his master and first good friend get killed while he sat there helpless.  Could you imagine having to watch your dad die?  Then his burst of rage was really strong and believable. 

But the emotion in the third movie was very two-dimensional (at least for Anakin).  Anakin hates Obi-Wan and wants to kill him with a passion.  Obi was a bit more complicated.  But in ROTJ you have Luke who believes his father can be redeemed but is being forced into a conflict with his father all the while being antagonized by the Emporer.  In the end he shows where his true emotions lie.  And Vader would have been extremely pained to see his son being shocked the crap out of.  But that would come into conflict with the last 30 some-odd years of rage and hate he has had beaten into him by his master.

Re: Do you like the prequels

You mean obi wan was a lot more complicated.

Still i fing obi vs anakin more powerful than any original trilogy stuff.

And visually the prequels duels are far superior than the originals duels.

Visually there is no doubt that the prequels are better.  You have to be total old school to think that.  But this is an opinion thing of course and we could go on forever back and forth.

One other thing that makes the prequels better.

Boba Fett.  I mean seriously.  You can't get any better than that.  (Haha, you must concede defeat now!)

Re: Do you like the prequels

I would see the Duel of Fates and Obi vs. Anikan as just about equel if it wasn't for the crappy way Maul died.  Obi-Wan did exactly what he told and then proved that Anikan couldn't do; and he did it with his arms and not his legs.................very stupid.  That ending ruind much of that fight.

On the other hand, Anikan's crappy lines and voice didn't help that fight, but didn't kill it.  Obi-Wan's victory was much more believalbe and emotinal then Duel of fates I think.  Anikan's hate mixed with pain in his eys; Obi-Wan's tearfully yelling at his fallen friend that he was the chosen one; extreamly moving I thought.

Compared to the original trilogy, yes, they are much more visually stunning, but not as believable in mho.  The Jedi jump from Original Trilogy powerful to video game powerful; there's damn near nothing that can stop them.  I like to think their power and abilities, depending on which one you're talking about and what era they are in, somewhere between the old and new trilogies.

And back to Miba's point, I posted this topic first  tongue

Re: Do you like the prequels

Over time i have come to like both the trilogies equally instead of one over the other too.
