    Put me down as a childhood fan that Lucas lost by making the prequels too cutsey and insisting on dicking about with the originals so much..

    I guess franchises get like that.. But Nolan kept the Dark Knight stuff coherent all the way through..

    I grandfathered in Star Wars and watched all of the prequels and liked them but I am afraid JJ Abrams is going to make these too blockbuster-ish

    Sounds stupid because they all were but this will be too dumbed down

    Loved the first two Star Wars movies, hated the Ewoks and everything that happened afterward. Never paid to see any of the prequels, but eventually saw them on TV. Every aspect of the later three was terrible, but the direction was especially egregious. Natalie Portman in particular was a profound disappointment due to poor direction. Lucas clearly developed a swelled head and surrounded himself with professional sycophants, so must have believed he could do no wrong.

    I have low expectations for the next sequels, but doubt they could be much worse than Episodes I - III.

    I am certain I will go see it, even if it is as bad as certain parts of the more recent trilogy. Too much of a fan not to give it a try.

    I'm kinda like Paul, except for movies that "can't happen", I refuse to go see a movie where people dress up like the characters.

    No doubt about it, the first 3 are masterpieces of cinema and that's where they are to be experienced, in the cinema. One of my earliest and lasting memories of the cinema was seeing The Empire Strikes back I'm happy to say. These new films are watchable and try their best but pale in comparison to the impact of the first 3. Still... I'll go watch this new one in the cinema when it comes out.

    I agree that the 3 prequals were desperately disappointing, I think Lucas tried to fit in too much into the battle scenes there's just so much going on whereas in the classic Death Star attack you've a handful of x-wings and y-wings I'm sure we could all recognise Red 2 from Gold leader. Same with the Hoth planet battle, a few At-At walkers and they caused mayhem. The prequels seemed aimed at making as much money as possible from buildup and franchising as many toy models as possible.
