Man. I had four strips of bacon yesterday. Was one automatically undercooked, one automatically overcooked? No, let's put a stop to that right here, all four strips were excellent.

This is actually incredibly well thought out, including the meta reasoning for why it turned out he was never revealed to be one in the prequels.

I am inclined to believe Jar Jar had a bigger role initially too. Lucas said in the TPM behind the scenes footage "Jar Jar is the key to everything" at one point. I think he was talking about getting kids interested in the film, but maybe he had a bigger plan too. Dooku did always seem like a random character thrown in there too. I'm not sure I buy that Jar Jar would be above Sidious, though. Perhaps he was intended to be a spy or even an apprentice. Well, I guess it's up to Lucas if that will ever be revealed. Great reasoning in the reddit post, with quality examples.

I still hate the prequels, though. That much hasn't changed.

Anyone that says that Including Christopher Lee is random is dead to me.

Just because Christopher Lee can make a character awesome doesn't mean that the character didn't feel random. It's not Lee's fault if the script seemed lacking when it came to his character. He took that character and owned the fuck out of it.

Jar Jar did kick off the civil war, which makes sense because when you put someone that stupid in charge of something, he's going to screw it up. So who put him in charge? *glare*

I just tried to imagine Jar Jar saying the famous line, but I just couldn't do it.

So Star Wars DVD/Blue Ray set was pretty cheap over Thanksgiving, so I picked up Episode I--III.  I just watched Episode I yesterday; I don't think I've seen it since it was in theaters.  I was hoping it would be better than I remembered, but it was actually much worse :(  It's like every bit of drama, suspense, adventure, etc. is completely undermined by poor dialogue and a very feeble attempt to comic relief.

There are really only two bits I like from Episode I - the scene where Anakin leaves his mother is surprisingly heartbreaking, and then the end battle is just balls out insane.  Everything else is just kind of... there?  It's like there are some good ideas, just executed poorly.

I dunno.. rewatching, the scene where Anakin leaves was cringey for me.  I didn't really feel for the characters at all.  The final battle was okay, but again undermined by JarJar taking out dozens of droids and battle machines by pure stupidity, as well as Anakin doing... well, everything that he did.  I mean, I understand that in some sense you want to convey that in some sense these characters are guided and protected by the Force, even if they have no awareness of it, but it's just too.. light-hearted and goofy.

Even the humor in Return of the Jedi was much better done, and it was contrasted with dark and serious scenes (like Endor battle juxtaposed with Luke vs. Vader and the Emperor). 

I agree, though, that there are good ideas, but the execution was very bad.

I always (well, not actually always) thought the first movie was abysmal. but the second is much better! you should enjoy that one.

I sometimes wonder whether i'd hate episode VI if it came out today. I mean, the death star story is just a rip-off from episode IV, and what's with those teddy bears killing Storm Troopers Home-alone-style? When were those space-nazis replaced with Mr. Darkhood there, and how come R2D2 and C3PO can walk through the fire of battle without a scratch? I mean, i also prefer VI over the prequels, but i doubt the reason's anything but nostalgia.
