Has anyone here watched all 5 existing episodes in sequence? I had the opportunity a few weeks ago. Although SW is still a work in progress, with much needing to be done in all the films to make them gel completely, my verdict is: it works, it hangs together, it feels like one film. The emotional impact is definately heightened by watching them together. It flows pretty well. Characters like Yoda benefit from having a backstory. Recurring characters like Jabba and Boba lend the film the feel of a big novel. The mirroring text and action work very well without feeling redundant. The central characters definately gain depth from the 'PT' - Anakin, Palpatine, Luke & Leia. I like the contrasts between the first half & the second half: *SW begins in a woeld of high technology, everything works at the push of a button. By ANH only the Empire has this luxury > everyone else is flying in pieces of junk. *We start out with our heroes surrounded by noble and self sacrificing characters like Amidala & her entourage & the Jedi. By ANH our heroes have been reduced to the likes of Han Solo, a mercenary. *Anakin's time as a Jedi exists in a philosophically diffuse world. By ROTJ all of this has been reduced to 2 options for Luke: vengeance or self sacrifice. Has anyone else done this? Thoughts?
