Prequel Appreciation Safe Space

Post by casinoskunk »

I have been rewatching the Prequels a lot lately and have been really enjoying them. The acting and directing have definite issue as does the dialogue. BUT, i think the story is pretty good.

I know this is strange, but I recently watched them in reverse order (don't @ me) and it was interesting in seeing the seeds that Lucas planted from early on. I really liked how Mace Windu denied Anakin's training in Phantom Menace then denied him Master in Revenge of the Sith!

My name is Ralph and I am a Prequel lover...
...is an action film made in 1982 directed by former stuntman Hal Needham.

SWM helped me appreciate them so much more, and I'm willing to overlook a lot of the bad parts because of the good parts now. And there are some pretty great parts of the prequels.

As much as others mock them, there are things to appreciate about each of them that make them worth re-watching. Like Pete, I have a real soft spot for TPM, and I really do like watching it. The somewhat wonky things in AOTC and ROTS become endearing now that we've gone over them one minute at a time. Ceridwen, I think a few of us would back you up on making all SW spaces safe Prequel loving spaces. :D

I've said it a few times in the FB group, but Obi-Wan being old friends with gigantic bug monster who works in a space diner is one of my favorite SW things because it's equal parts absurd and genuine. SW SHOULD be weird like that, and I hope they don't shy away from that sort of thing in the new series.

I appear to be in the minority but I dislike The Mandalorian more than the prequels. I don't have any idea what everyone else so enraptured with. Baby Yoda looks like the gummy Venus De Milo from The Simpsons. The plot feels like it was written in crayon. Then Bill fucking Burr turns up.

That's ok, I'm really enjoying it, but it's not going to be for everyone. We don't have to tear it down to build up stuff we like, that's the fun part about there being so much Star Wars right now.

For me personally, on the topic of this thread, I was thrilled to get new live-action prequels-era scenes a couple weeks ago.

Honestly, how many chances will we have in this life to see the work of a self-financed auteur with a shooting budget of 100M+ for not one but THREE movies?

This is always such a good point. Just their very existence is such a wholly unique set of filmmkaing circumstances.
