I sort of got this debate idea from the Oregon fan Force forums. To my point, I would like to know how everyone feels about these to great, yet different trilogys. I know most of you will say they are the same and all one story, but as i know from one of you, this is not the case. This is a debate forum so feel free to state your opinions as you will. My personal feeling, and the fact that I am 31 years old, that I may just like the OT a little more. Its not that they are better movies or anything like that, but the fact that I saw them in the theaters in my childhood and I relate to them better because I can still remember the excitement the day I saw Return of the Jedi and saw the redemption scene of Anakin Skywalker for the first time. Still the most powerful scene I have ever scene in a movie (although a few in the upcoming Return of the King may change that). I guess I grew up in the movie age where special effects sere still relatively new. Although I am not complaining in the advancements of the new films either. I imagine some of you youngsters would like the PT better because you have grown up with movies with slick special effects and such. Remember Qui Gonn when I tried to get you to watch an early 80's fantasy movie and you said it was to hokey for you? There is something to be said for the things you grow up with and how it effects one's opinions. The PT is not complete yet, so it is hard to make final judgement. The Jar Jars, romance, and everything eles have their place as they move the story along. the characters of Obi Wan, Padme and Anakin are incredible and add a whole new dimension to what we know in the OT. I think Episode 3 will be the deciding factor on how great the PT really is. Star Wars as a whole is great and we all appreciate each film one way or another. I know we all have one we really like, mine being ESB. Star Wars is one big story with six great episodes (and if the rumors prove true, maybe more) and I know we all enjoy them or we would be trekkies (gag!!!!!). Just remember that a Bad Star Wars movie (NO SUCH THING) is better then any Paulie Shore movie (no offense to Mr. Shore's die hard fans, if there is such a thing)!!!
