Episodes 1-3

Well, what to say, I happily watched Episodes 4-6 a few weeks ago, in preparation for the release of The Force Awakens, and the plan was to then watch 1-3, but I kinda chickened out. But having gotten all caught up on Star Wars Rebels, I wanted to watch more Star Wars stuff, and so decided to bite the bullet and revisit these “things.” Last night I watched Episodes 1 and 2 back-to-back, and yes, I lived to tell the tale (and I’ll probably watch 3 tonight). The third film is actually the one I’m most looking forward to watching again, because I think it’s possibly sorta OK (overall). I don’t think it even bares mentioning or bringing up again what’s wrong with this trilogy. I do still like segments here and there (in the first film I do like the pod racing and the final 3-way battle with Darth Maul, and in the second one I like what happens once all the Jedi show up on Geonosis), but yeah, here’s hoping The Force Awakens lives up to those trailers we’ve seen so far, that makes it feel more original trilogy than prequels.
