Ok heres what i mean by was it a lil late to the party. in 1977and star wars was released and was a massive hit and not just because of the great story and cast but because of ground-breaking effects it had. Thanks to Star Wars movies could push effects further than they could have gone before. Now here is were my Q lies. because star wars developed a way for movies to go further than they have ever been before was it a double edge soward for the PT when they were released because CG and the like had been used in abundce over the years leading up to the PT and by the time the PT got here effect had been so over done that it was nothing new and caused be people not to enjoy the flims as much as they could have if he made them ealier? Hopfully im making my self clear in this post.
