You know, I like the Original trilogy more than the prequels, but I still think the prequels are like, at least 8/10.   
   
I mean, this may be because I was like 8 years old when "Episode III: Revenge of the Sith" came out, but at the time, when I didn't have internet and no one could tell me that all the prequels sucked, I really loved them.

Yeah. I like the originals better too only because it was a big family time thing whenever we watched them. But I like the prequels; mostly because of Liam Neeson in the first and Natalie Portman in the rest as well.

I agree with you, prequels were super good. It's only the ******* wagonists who have that "new = terrible" mindset. Crazy fight scenes, much needed CGI, and a pretty ****** up story on top of it. I feel like it's often taken for granted how unique and verging on genius it was of George Lucas to put the "prequels" after. It was just so unprecedented to see a story explained by essentially a super-long flashback

Seriously? It has nothing to do with "new = terrible". Go look up what people don't like about the prequels before assuming things. On that note, there was nothing unique about putting the prequels after. It's a common trope in cinema and literature, and they usually end up mediocre, too, for the same reasons, such as characters "Put on a Bus," and "Doomed by Canon".

He did a good job with it, in my opinion.
However I struggle to believe that it has nothing to do with the "new = terrible" idea...Considering that it seems like a good contingent of FJ has already adopted this way of thinking. I'm just saying that I wouldn't be surprised if that had an influence in why people hate the prequels so much.

I'm sure you're right also though, in that there are other (good) reasons why people don't really like the prequels.

It might be "new=terrible" for some, and I didn't hate the new movies in and of themselves. It's just setting them next to the originals doesn't do the originals justice. In case you haven't seen the originals in a while, the dialog and acting in it was so good that some people founded a religion based on it! And, it became one of the greatest movies of all time, still famous 40 years later. In contrast, the new movies are pretty standard for annual box office hits. The words-of-wisdom in the new movies are more or less cliche "sounds good" advice, unlike the thought provoking lines in the originals.

I stay true to myself, **** the bandwagoners that dislike the prequels, pod racing was ******* sick, the geonocians were ******* sick, and the goddamn galactic empire was ******** SICK
