I'll probably get a fair amount hate for this, but I really don't view people who say they hate the prequels as Star Wars fan.

Were the prequels the best beginning series ever? **** no.
Were they absolutely terrible? Again, **** no.

I think there are really only two reasons that people hate the prequels. 1. Either they grew up watching episodes 4-6 and just cannot get over the fact that time progresses forward or 2. It's fun to be a part of the bandwagon that hates the prequels.

That being said I don't agree with everything in the prequels. Jar Jar Binks is a pretty annoying character, but he does provide some level of comedic distraction in a series pretty heavily focused on a galaxy-wide war. Should Lucas have involved science into the Star Wars universe by using midichlorians? It wasn't really necessary, by it doesn't hurt the series. Why do you care so much?

"Oh the prequels were totally designed for the kids."

Are you ******* kidding me? Episodes 4-6 were all PG. As were episodes 1 and 2. The only movie that got even remotely close to an "adult rating" was episode 3 which was PG-13. Which was apart of the prequels.

People need to stop focusing on the prequels so much. They've been produced and released for several years now. They aren't terrible. They don't get my dick hard as diamonds, but that shouldn't mean they're bad. I think we should all focus more on what Disney is going to do with the series.

Rant over.

Aside from the forced romance and Jar jar I prefer the prequels to the original trilogy. The only thing to really draw me into Starwars was the Jedi and their lore. Now there's an unpopular opinion.

Idk how bad people say it was...Darth Maul made that movie good. Even counteracted Jar Jar.

the prequels are great, almost as good as the originals, only reason people hate them is because of jar jar and its "cool" to hate them

I'll just copy+paste what I said last time somebody said something like that, I thinks it's pretty applicable:

"Actually the real reason a lot of people hate the prequels is because of the awful plot, story arch, characters, and dialogue, basically the lack of all essential things to good film-making.
There's just a lot of young folk around without any sense of discernment that is easily impressed with some flashy CGI and slick light saber action and can't see that through this superficial layer of commericial gimmicks. It's one big incohorent mess of inept film-making.
But granted that this is their idea of a good movie they just unrightfully assume other people hate it because they can't stand change."

For a bit more clarification:

"Boring flat characters, emotionally unconvincible, and relationships all implied not actually seen.
Awful dialogue, inchorent, unnecessarily complex, illogical story full of plotholes, everything feels like / is a plot device.

The list of contradictory things and things that simply didn't make sense is neverending.
It's like a 10 year old made everything up on the fly and they deceided to go with it.

I guess this is what happens when George Lucas with complete control is surrounded by a bunch of yes-men that don't question him creatively, having his finger in literallly everything.
A commercialized mess where they tried to shove in as many **** and tricks as they could for mass-appeal, with a movie tone going to lamenting of death and beheading to slap stick comedy to cheesy soap opera-esque romances in matter of minutes, no seconds, combined with everlasting meaningless slick action that's devoid of any suspense.

I could go on forever.

I'm a big movie fan and have seen a lot stuff but this is definitely high on the list of incompetent film-making.
I feel sorry for the people who spend the countless of hours doing the make-up, costumes, sets, special effects and music, being the only thing good about the movies."

I was pretty young when they came out, so I loved them... And I'll continue to remember them that way.
However, I re-watched the original trilogy and Empire will always be my favourite.

i really do not get all the hate the prequels get. right after episode 6, i think episode 3 is the best star wars movie. it also has amazing acting, especially the end. i don't care what anyone says, it really documents vaders fall to the dark side. i think that vaders change back was a bit rushed, rather than his change. but hey, i'm only sixteen, i may be totally wrong.

I have never watched Star Wars.
Thought I'd do a marathon since the entirety of the internet was talking about it and how awesome they are, plus I like science fiction.
Didn't like them. Any of them. The originals are kinda dated (in my opinion, so calm down... I also didn't like "A Clockwork Orange" for the same reason, and I'm not one of those people that think anything old is **** ... I quite enjoyed "Gojira- 1954" for example) and the prequels... to be honest, I can't remember anything about them except for some key moments... hated young Anakin, though I really enjoyed it when he wasn't talking and just acting with his body language and facial expressions. Biggest gripe is it's not really science fiction... it's some Shakespearin play in spaaaaaace. I like those, but that's not what I was expecting to get. If I were born earlier, I guess I would have been a trekker.

now, while i agree Phantom Menace is the worst star wars film, i dont actually think it sucked. ya parts of it sucked, but overall it wasnt terrible. it wasnt the origin story people wanted and they got upset, but if you look at it for what it is, its not that bad. could have been better, but thats what we got
