haha it's all good. Like what you like and I'll do the same. In fact the majority of what I watch would be considered "bad movies" by the ranks of Metacritic or Rotten Tomato haha. (Looking thru the Movies thread, the most recent things I've watched: The Lawnmower Man, Predators, 976-EVIL 2, Sydney White...)

But yeah, my wife and I re-watched both trilogies leading up to The Force Awakens in the past year. I enjoyed the first two more than I remembered. They weren't great, but they didn't bore me. But the third I actually thought was awesome. I mean, it could have stood on its own in place of a prequel trilogy - as that one movie feels like it tells you everything you needed to know about Anakin. Which I also felt did add something to Awakens if it's fresh in your mind going into it. Shrug.

Anyway, I've taken us off course.

Blue Burst is awesome. It's a very viable way to play PSO today with friends. And it has a lot more content than the original DC release, including Episode IV which was exclusive to PC.

I don't like episode I or episode II, but I agree that Revenge of the Sith is pretty awesome. (It is, IMO, better than Return of the Jedi.)

I used to quite like the prequel trilogy, but a rewatch confirmed to me that Revenge of the Sith is mediocre and Attack of the Clones is literally one of the worst things I've ever seen - the battle at the end is fun, but the entire movie up to that point is unbearable.

I actually found myself enjoying Phantom Menace well enough. Sure, it's irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, but as a standalone movie I think it's way better than II or III.

Also, controversial opinions time - I think Return of the Jedi is the best film in the original trilogy, and think Empire is a bit boring. Still better than the prequels by some way mind, but it's m least favourite of the 3.

1. Return of the Jedi
2. A New Hope
3. Force Awakens
4. Empire Strikes Back
5. Phantom Menace
6. Revenge of the Sith
7. Attack of the Clones


Also, apologies for jacking the thread. I will stop now. If people wish to dispute me or ridicule my opinions, send the PMs my way :lol:

I also re-watched them all last winter too. As someone who is more of a movie buff and not a SW nut... good lord they're even worse than most people give them credit for, with almost zero redeeming qualities. I think Revenge just might be the worst! Attack is more boring, for sure, but Revenge of the Sith strives for a stronger emotional story... and as such, it fails even harder than the other two movies. I like the original trilogy, but they're "just" really well-made space opera films. Worth a re-watch maybe every 5 years or so... anything else would be over-exposure. You can imagine how annoyed I was back in Nov-Dec when the Disney marketing machine utterly took over the internet.

Ahem! Keep up the good work Reprise. I'm jealous you're able to post away on a daily basis and I'm still doing... 2 per week.
