    The prequels had the potential to be a masterpiece, it's all there, in the elements. Only Revenge of the Sith comes close.

    The general public has an average IQ below triple digits. Of course high IQ kinos like the prequels cannot be appreciated by them.

        THE ENTIRE SCALE OF IQ ADJUSTS EVERY YEAR, SO IF THE GENERAL PUBLIC INSTANTLY BECAME HALF AS SMART AS THEY WERE, THAN ALL 50 IQ PEOPLE ARE RE-REGISTERED AS 100 IQ PEOPLE WITHOUT GETTING ANY SMARTER, BECAUSE THAT'S HOW YOUR FAKE FUCKING SYSTEM WORKS.

    I have only ever heard George Lucas mention this as being the reason he started with the second trilogy. But how could anyone not look at maul and qui-gon, or obi wan and dooku and be confused at who the bad guy is? They also don't really do a good job at showing the trade federation as being sympathetic and that the war is nuanced. It also doesn't help that Palp is using them to look like bad guys for his own gains and the movies are more shown towards that perspective.

    >"Anakin can't go through emotions like a regular human being. He's a crybaby!"

    Are you saying he does and the audience is saying he isn't allowed to or are you saying Anakin is unable to go through emotions like a regular human being? The problem is clearly the latter.

      It’s a logical plan, use your head.

      Its in the subtext, use your head. Every character wears their motivation on their sleeve, George made it easy for us.

      Use your head. George understands women. Even the fascism is sexy.

      that's the point though. first, stylistically, emotions can be displayed in an over the top way, Japanese cinema does it, for example. Its fine.

      But furthermore, the thing with Anakin is that his humanity is always at stake. There's a classic assotiation between humanity and emotions. Anakin can't handle his emotions in a proper way so he's on the limits towards being an animal. when his body starts getting fucked up, gets his arm cut off and gets a prosthetic, thats a classic image of a character losing his humanity and verging on the merely mechanical. when he's finally put in the darth vader suit he's unable to display emotion. he's finally more machine than man

      Anakins emotional issues is only a problem if you want Star Wars to be about regular folk doing some shit

    It's not even that they're not defined, it's that everyone has dogshit characterization; none of them behave like actual human beings, but instead puppets with Lucas's hands stuck up their ass to make them spout exposition.
    The only person in the entire series with any real personality is Palpatine in the 3rd movie. It's no coincidence why that film is considered the least shitty of the three when you have this crazy old guy who loves being evil hamming it up and expressing some fucking passion for once.

      Jedis don't do that, it's against the code.

      Star Wars is best when it's a little depersonalized and focused on themes and symbolism and not overly emotional character writing, like the sequels are. People just don't get it.

      Are you autistic? We see every character experience a range of emotions

    Bad CGI, alot of backgrounds are fake, bad acting, mindless continous actions scenes, awkward romance subplot, Anakin is a child who can't act and then is a whiny creepy horny teenager followed by some edgy guy who slaughters a bunch of innocent children in two movies and he is suppose to be redeemed at the end of return of the jedi special edition, movies have tonnes of plot holes, jar jar binks exist to appeal to bored children who don't care about anything else in the movie, ruined many characters from the originals like Yoda and C3PO and the entire movie is just a product made on a production like to sell toys and merchandise to kids and video games to teenagers.

      I would describe the romance subplot as robotic, not awkward. Awkward gives people the argument that real romantic relationships are supposed to be awkward.

    yes. but in this case its not about the ability to reason or whatever. people accustomed to big budget studio adventure flicks tend to measure every film to that same standard. what happens then is they're completely lost when watching an actual work of art thats earnest and sincere.

    in the case of the prequels its very clear that they're closer to an epic poem than to something like, say, E.T. or the Goonies

      Stories are all the same. ET is about a kid learning to empathize through a character arc the same way Gilgamesh learns that he can't live forever through a character arc. To say that a work isn't given a fair shake because its meant to be something else is a cop out. If George Lucas wanted to make an epic poem, then he should have done that or maybe entertain the idea that you can fail at attempting to bridge two mediums.

        i don't agree that stories are the same. Cinema in particular learned perticularly quickly that you can violate classic story rules and come up with a film thats its own thing. Just look at L'aventura for example

        I don't think a story lives and dies with a character arc. Anakins arc is so conventional, classic and universal that its clear that you're watching something else. Lucas himself has said that he's more sympathetic to experimental cinema than anything else, and he explicitly evokes the language of music when talking about the prequels and the special editions and, yes, he even talks about the logic that works at the base of poetry even though everyone finds this part extremely funny when making fun of him.

          Way to prove OP's point, retard.

          There have been books, comics, playwrights, even rides adapted into movies and no one had a problem understanding them. Once you convert a medium to another medium it is no longer the original medium, this should be a simple concept. It doesn't matter if people don't understand epic poems, because the star wars movies are movies and not poems. If someone has trouble parsing the format of a comic book, they aren't going to all of a sudden magically be confused by a marvel movie. Most people wouldn't know how to begin to read a Shakespeare play, but would have no trouble watching 10 things I hate about you. This poem excuse is a cop out and says more about George Lucas failing to adapt a medium than it says about the audience. If you ever seen Red Tails then you know he is capable of failing.

            its not an issue of adaptations across mediums. its about how we should be paying more attention to the way certain films are supposed to be approached and how we can't consider every film to be leveled to the same kind of reading. George Lucas's Star Wars shouldn't be approached the same way 80s whimsical adventure flicks are approached, and if you do then you're missing out or, in the worst of cases, you indulge in the pettiest and shittiest of attitudes towards a work that has demanded its artist decades of his life. (which is the default state of things since RLM)

            i'm not saying you're supposed to like these films, but it should be inmediatly obvious that they deserve a little bit of respect and you should at least try to meet it halfway in terms of what they're trying to accomplish. I don't particularly love them but, calling them some of the worst films ever made? you must be on fucking crack or straight up delusional to say that, honestly. (i'm not talking about you, just the general mindset)
