    I think the effects in the original star wars are terrible, i wish they would redo the cantina scene just becuz of the bad special effects

    True, story-wise it's time has passed, perhaps.

    I wouldn't mind another podrace, but I can see why it wouldn't happen, nor do I think the old one needs much improvement. But a similar high octane event would be welcomed... I think I could go with a horse race style of event in future movies. Riders on some form of creature, it could add a lot of power and unpredictability to proceedings, the Sebulba type character whipping one of the other racers into falling off and getting trampled etc.

    Also, I thought the Zam Wessel chase scene could've been longer and more perilous... I loved the 'Lightsaber Lost' episode of TCW's Chase sequence for that reason. Some jumping from vehicle to vehicle would've been a nice touch!

    The average audience member does NOT think that all darksiders are Sith.

    Well, they'd be correct.

    Indeed they would be... Except that they think "Sith" is Palpatine's race.

    1. I like TPM and my liking of it grows more and more as time passes.

    2. Ewan was the better Obi-Wan

    3. ESB is not my favorite movie.

    4. I just can't make myself hate Jar-Jar or the Ewoks. I am indifferent.

    I've been coming to the same place... though I fast-forward the podrace sequence. [face_tired]

    not a fan of that scene either.

    i am the opposite with AOTC. i thought it was so cool when it first came out. as times passes, the jamming of all kinds of crap on screen, everybody having a lightsaber, the forced love story, and the over the top battles seem to almost make me hate it.

    Dude, you're speaking my language. ESPECIALLY re: the love story. The moment those two start talking to each other I want to put my head through a wall.

    I'm not really sure if this is unpopular but I don't like Zam Wessel. I mean why couldn't Jango just try to kill Padme by himself? Dooku asked Jango to do it, not Zam Wessel. There really wasn't any need for her IMO.

    I like how Jabba looks in the 2004 version of ANH.

    I think she was simply there to fail and be caught. If it was Jango doing the killing, Padme would have died early on in the film and that would have been a pretty tough corner to write your way out of.

    I too, prefer the white walls. However, that's probably only because in about the past year I have become a Star Wars purist and I reject about 75% or more of all the changes Lucas has ever done.

    The prequels were good, the majority of canon should be preserved and accommodated, the Clone Wars cartoon should be erased from history, and the Disney flicks will probably be lousy.

    Those aren't /all/ unpopular...

    The first is (though I agree), the second isn't particularly unpopular, I think, (not sure of my opinion on it, though), the third is unpopular, I think, (and I strongly disagree), and the last one isn't particularly unpopular, either...

    1) I like AOTC more than ROTS
    2) I like Jar Jar Binks more than Lando Calrissian
    3) The lightsaber duel in ANH is my favorite
    4) I really enjoy the love story in AOTC
    5) I love the Ewoks
    6) I thought Darth Vader was a weak character until I saw ROTJ

    That's all I can think of.

    Oooh, I'm going to have a field day with this!

    -clears throat-

    Neimoidians are spectacularly beautiful and intelligent species (Rune Haako in particular)...and dare I say, sexy?
    Nute Gunray and Lott Dod are gorgeous!
    My favourite film is Episode I
    The Trade Federation is an outstanding corporation, and intrinsically important to Neimoidian society
    I support the Trade Federation's decision to blockade Naboo, because they were indirect victims of the Republic's tax schemes.
    Neimoidians are misunderstood and underappreciated
    The Neimoidians are NOT racist, and the entire accusation is weak, baseless, and probably just people finding more things to dislike about Ep I
    I would rather be kissed by Nute Gunray than Han Solo
    The politics of the PT are awesome
    The Separatists were right all along
    It would not be Star Wars without the Neimoidians
    ROTJ is my favourite film of the OT
    ROTJ is more emotional than ESB (although I do think ESB was the best one)
    The Neimoidian grub hatcheries are a good idea

    Aaaaand....I like Jar Jar!

    I'll let myself out...

    If the OT is a "holy trilogy," then so is the Karate Kid.

    Unpopular SW opinions... Well...
    - I think that the PT is superior to the OT
    - OT is obsolete in terms of moviemaking, mostly action over logic
    - ANH is filled with plot holes
    - Despite all his fan-clubs and support groups, I think that spaceship eating space worm is the most ridiculous thing in the saga
    - No, that's it for now.

    I genuinely love The Star Wars Holiday Special. I don't lke it because it's silly enough to become laughable, I just love it in the true sense of the term. Same thing with the two Ewoks movies. Oh, and I also think that Willow and its spinoff novels *should* have been integrated in the Star Wars EU. For real. Not just as an April Fools' joke.

    "It looks like a video game" is not a pejorative to me. Fumito Ueda is by far a better director than J.J. Abrams.

    I'd rather watch the theatrical versions of the film on the 1995 "One Last Time" VHS tapes than watch the 2004 Special Edition DVDs or the 2011 Blu-rays.
