Shit, you mean you'll have to pay for it when you use it instead of having it included in taxes?

That just makes him an even worse character. See, we still liked Vader. We wanted to see him on the screen even if the things he did were deplorable. He had charisma and presence. We liked him because he had a presence to him.
Anakin was a worthless sack of shit sitting atop a mound of sacks of shit that are the prequel movies. As much as McGreggor played a good Obi Wan Haden Christiansen played a terrible Anakin. It's not his fault though, Lucas was horribly misguided in making the prequels. His previous work was astounding but he in the end became everything that he fought against when he toiled to make his labour of love in the first place. (Yes, Lucas' career mirrors the life of Skywalker to a shocking degree.)
However, I will give Anakin this... he was amazing in the Clone Wars series. Both the 2D and CG series portray him as exactly the character he was always meant to be, brash, arrogant, selfish but also roguish and brilliant. A charismatic leader who knows he knows best and screws the rules whenever he can (though sometimes even he can not escape the rules.)
He is a kind soul with a strong heart and his journey across the series is Star Wars gold, but not just him. Ventress, Ahsoka, Barris, there are a load of great characters. The series gets progressively more serious as well. Personally I'd say the first series is the worst as they clearly had trouble nailing the tone they wanted and Ahsoka is unbearable at points but the series really is ten times better than all of the prequel movies put together.

I get pretty deep into analysing pretty much everything I love so just take it as red that I suggest to you the Clone Wars. If you can stomach the kiddiest parts of the first season you'll get to watch a series continually better itself over time. It's a great series for watching something evolve, because it really does.

Anakin was a worthless wretch in the films. In the Clone Wars series (2D and CG) he was an astoundingly good character. Both of the Clone Wars series were ten times better than all the prequels put together and that is the Anakin that I wanted to see going in.
Also, there's this arc in one of the series which is one hell of a mystical experience about the force and it's nature. Oh, and not ONCE do they mention the god-damned medichlorians!

Thank you. I noticed a lot more "I know this is an unpopular opinion but I think the prequels are actually good" on fj with the person getting 100 thumbs up. The more I think about it the more I hate the prequels. Anakin never felt like a tragic hero to me and really put down one of the greatest villains in movie history.

He does in the Clone Wars. However with the buyout of Lucasfilm the Clone Wars was discontinued. Really pissed me right the fuck off! And what did they do with that team?! The team that redeemed some of the worst elements in the Star Wars universe?! They put them to work on some dumb project called 'Rebels' which is made with the same visual style between episodes 3 and 4 and follows the same characters during the time when the Jedi were on the run and were given a huge budget to boot...
Yeah I can't really be mad about that... I think 'Hyped as fuck!' is a better term.
Point is, I hate the prequels but I love that they were made. The parallels between George Lucas and Skywalker are great examples of art imitating life. As a young and optimistic director aching to make his mark on history by bringing his dream to reality, struggling over all the obstacles shooting put his way and eventually succeeding and becoming a hero of Sci-Fi before becoming corrupted by the very things he fought against in the first place and turning into a monster, vilified by those that once loved him as he hurt them over and over again... only to later redeem himself in the end by stopping the reign of tyranny, sacrificing his dream in order to hand the reigns over to someone who can better steer it.
I love Lucas' work pre and post prequels but the prequels suck ass and will forever stand as a landmark in filmmaking. Never before or since has a fandom ever suffered so much. They are a lesson to filmmakers everywhere of the dangers of CGI, of being unchallenged on your set and rushing the scripts. Letting the money and laziness go to your head.
Plus, without the prequels there would be none of those great games like Battlefront and Old Republic.
I hate the prequels but much like the Nazis the world is better off for knowing their evils.

Mr. Rogers would probably agree with that. Life is worthless if all we do is see the good in the good and the bad in the bad. Life isn't about face-value. Everything from art to people to existence itself is far more interesting once you stop observing and start analysing.
But perhaps that is a touch too philosophical for this time of night, eh?
