Everyone here who knows me knows how much I used to ****ING HATE THE STAR WARS PREQUELS MORE THAN LIFE ITSELF.  I'm over that now, but they still have flaws.  So today I'm counting down the top 5 worst things in the prequels.

5. Overuse of CG

One of the best things about the OT was the use of practical effects.  But in the prequels, there was filthy, ****ty, fake-ass CGI that made me foam in the mouth.  The overusage of green screens was absolutely ****ing atrocious.

 

4. Politics

The politics were boring as ****.  Yes, they were important to the story, but they weren't interesting at all.

 

3. Ruined the Character of Darth Vader

The main focus of the prequels was Vader's past, but holy **** they ****ed that up.  Anakin was more whiny than ****ING ANH LUKE SKYWALKER.  Seriously, how the Hell is this *****:

the same guy as THIS BADASS MUTHA****A:

 

2. Cringiest Romance Story EVER

As if the ruining of Darth Vader wasn't bad enough, they made the couple that would create the galaxy's new hope

CRINGEY

 

 

 

 

 

AS

 

 

 

 

 

****

Anakin "I don't like sand" Skywalker and Padme "You're breaking my heart" Amidala were a **** couple.  Even more so than Owen Grady and Claire Dearing in Jurassic World.  That's saying a lot.

 

1. Jar Jar Binks

'Nuff said.

Never noticed that last comment, but that video pretty much said everything you did, most of which I pointed out problems with.

He doesn't really go into any information on some things. He just mentions how the prequels ruined some characters but doesn't really defend that point.

 

That would be like me saying TFA ruins Luke and just leaving it at that.

^He did explain how freaking Yoda was ruined

No he didnt he made the same point you did, and you can look at the last page for how that did nothing to ruin his character.

2KMember4115 XPDec-11-2016 7:21 AM

^Sure, but other iconic characters, like Darth Vader, R2-D2, and C-3PO were ruined

How were R2 and C-3PO ruined?

 

Don't agree Vader was, and I also stated why on the other page.

^R2 was able to do things he couldn't do in the OT, and Threepio in AOTC made me throw up

"Part of the journey is the end..."

A lot of R2 doing new things has to do with effects. It wasn't possible to have him fly in the 70s.

 

C3PO is no different to me. He's meant to be an annoying complainer, he was that in the OT too.

^Lol, it still doesn't make sense that he was more advanced in a trilogy that takes place earlier

"Part of the journey is the end..."

The only difference is the jetpacks, and logically it makes sense that it would have those as a way to get into the ships it copilots.

 

They didn't give him anything that outlandish, and giving him a jetpack isn't something that I would call ruining his character.

"logically it makes sense that it would have those as a way to get into the ships it copilots."

And then never use them again in Star Wars '77, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi? I agree the characters weren't ruined, necessarily, but they weren't given any favors either. It feels like a lot of the characters seen in the prequel trilogy were more like parodies of what we knew of them from the original trilogy. Not literally so, but everyone felt a lot less serious than what was expected.

As I said it was kind of an effects thing. Making R2 fly just wasn't possible in that capacity for the ot, at least not without a huge budget being devoted to that.

 

R2 is also literally different for the OT since the last things you see about him and C3PO is Bale Organa saying to wipe their memories and refit them since he gets them at the end of Episode 3.

^It was only Threepio who got his memory wiped

 

I say Threepio was ruined because he was temporarily a battle droid

InitiateMember425 XPDec-11-2016 1:15 PM

No it was both, C3PO was just the one to comment "oh dear" when he heard it.

The acting - I think the worst thing about the prequels was the acting! Most of the main cast is made up of good actors (Even Hayden has done some decent things) but somehow they all seemed to just phone it in for these movies.
