What do you think of Star Wars? Do you think they were really the best films ever made, or were they just a bit overrated?

I think it's overrated, and no offense..but...anyone who's extremely into it gives me the "I'm a loser/nerd" vibe.. >.<
So SORRY! Seriously don't mean to offend anyone >.<

Best movies ever! Personally I like episode IV the best, the whole Han, Luke and Leia thing is hilarious and Chewbacca is brilliant.

In my opinion Star Wars are the best films ever made. True genius. I just want to see how many of you people out there agree with me.....
dont right any insultin stuff about SW here, if u dont like it then fine, but dont go dissing it or anythin....
Thanks
XD



Personally I’ve never understood what made Star Wars so great. The original movies were amazing because of their graphical edge. It was fairly revolutionary for the time period. But, the same can be said of other movies such as Jurassic Park. The acting in the entire Star Wars series was mediocre at best, getting worse as the series progressed. Casting wasn’t brilliant, and Luke was whiney as hell. Not to ‘diss,’ or anything, but I simply disagree with you. I did not and never have really enjoyed these movies.

its good, but certainly not the best. there are many other better movies

Well they aren't the best of the best movies but for it's genre they are amazing. Tho after all those years of watching them I found first trilogy a bit cheesy. And second thought: I'd love Eps II and III if Anakin was played by NOT Hayden Christensen. This guy is just blank.

PS Natalie's clothes are woopie-dooo!
PPS I think it's weird that Amidala is much older than Anakin. Though I've read in a book based on Phantom Menace she was 15 and he was... 10?! 5 years is ok ;D

man i gotta say i agree with u in some ways there. its true that the acting in the films wasnt that gud at all. and i can see your point wen u say "it was gud for its time period" same as jurrassic park. but it was always the story line that got me. it's a fuckin genius story, way better than JP and most other things.....

I must say first trilogy was more comical with all those teddy guys messing around, moaning Chibakka and priceless moment where Leia kisses Luke and he makes -like face while Han Solo is because he's the one who really likes her ^__^ And new trilogy is tragic and dramatic. Everybody''s dead, Anakin becomes Darth and the only one funny old school thing is Jar Jar.

And my choice is:
Old one - Return of Jedi
New one - Revenge of the Sith

The worst is Phantom Menace. Boring as hell, sorry. Though Ewan McGregor was my first "celebrity love" after watching the movie in your age, Chris

I disagree. The story line to Jurassic Park was wonderful because it actually convinced you that it really could happen. The scientific research that went into the writing of that movie was profoundly in depth. Star Wars requires a consistent suspension of disbelief. Besides, it’s all been done before. Star Wars had the exact same story line as Lord of the Rings, except instead of a Norse mythological theme it was a science fiction theme.

In Lord of the Rings an unlikely hero living in a rural settlement and growing restless with adventure lust runs into a mystical sage who then encounters a great danger and sends the youngster on an adventure. The unlikely hero comes with a band of comical relief characters and discovers a dashing rogue who helps him escape his enemies. After this they reunite with the mysterious sage and team up with a motley crew of allies. The sage valiantly sacrifices himself, only to reappear in spirit later in the storyline. Together the group goes on an adventure across Middle Earth to defeat the Dark Lord and wins prizes, medals, and international admiration.

The story of star wars is also closely paralleled by the Sword of Shanara. Interestingly enough, one of the writers on Star Wars was Terry Brooks. Terry Brook’s first book WAS the Sword of Shanara. In other words, he just transferred his story and replaced the term “druid,” with “jedi,” and “magic,” with “the force.”

A bit overrated, but I can see why people back then thought it was the big thing.
