I like to talk about movies.

Many people will easily tell you that Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace was crap. Many people will easily tell you that Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones was crap. Many people will easily tell you that Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith was crap.

Whether or not this is true is probably in the hands of rather obnoxious Star Wars fanboys. This fanboy population is probably enough to outnumber the entire state of Wisconsin. I actually have no idea how big Wisconsin is, I just assume it isn't populous. I've lived in New York and Pittsburgh... so yeah... nothing more to base it off.

The type of kid who might kill me for my comments..

Anyways, instead of making random comments about the state of Wisconsin, I'm going to tell you that I, for one, loved the prequel trilogy. (Don't try to flame me for this, I've already prepared for the worst by wearing my fireproof suit) This is probably due to the fact I wasn't alive during the time of the original trilogy. I wasn't even a year old when The Phantom Menace came out. Does that make me irrelevant to the conversation? I don't care.

I always loved Episodes I, II, and III and I've always been a big fan of the original films. Yes, I do realize IV, V, and VI are better. But I've always been the one to defend the prequels. Although there are things I cannot defend.... Jar Jar Binks.

Besides the obvious errors in the films with the frequent awkwardness between Anakin Skywalker and Padme, some bad CGI, and rather cheesy plot lines and other blunders... they're not bad films. They're good films... as individual films.

Of course, one could easily say that the prequels were bad compared to the originals. I'm not going to argue. It's kinda true although it is subject to the opinion of the viewer. Some opinions are wrong... kidding.

But the fact remains: Say that the original trilogy never happened. These films would have been praised like Gods. If you're atheist then whatever you praise...

Feel free to comment below on why I'm wrong. I'm intrigued to see your opinions.

Anyways, let's cut to the chase:


I know what you're thinking. CGI Yoda sucked.

I'm just going to lay it out there and tell you CGI Yoda was freaking awesome. It was, in my eyes, equivalent in epicness to what we could all see in The Empire Strikes Back.

If Disney re-releases (with touchups) on the original trilogy, it'd just anger some fans if they ever CGI'd (is that word?) the puppet Yoda to CGI Yoda.

Let's NOT do this. Instead, let's re-do the CGI Yoda in the prequels so that the CGI actually still somewhat resembles CLOSELY to the original puppet.

It'd be less controversial and truly more awesome.

Anyways, tell me in the comments below what you think. And feel free to leave mean comments about my opinions.

May the force be with you. Until next time.
