Yesterday, GK and I happen to chat a bit about Star Wars and I thought it could be interesting to see your points of view.
What do you think of Star Wars in general? Do you like it or not?
Is it better than other science-fiction-series you know (i.e. Star Trek)?
Which Star Wars do you like better? The "older" one (episode IV-VI) with Han Solo, Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa or the "newer" one (episode I-III) with Anakin Skywalker and Obi wan Kenobi?
I personally like the old series better. I like the charming character of Han Solo and the story was more interesting. Episode I and II were quite boring IMO. III was ok but quite bombastic with all those special effects and overall it doesn't reach my love for ep IV-VI.

Re: Star Wars General Discussion
i think the older ones are better than the new series...but i must say i never become a fan of star wars. i always thought that the story could be told in a better way..but other than that thanx to star wars, so that science-fiction type films had fought enough support from movie makers
I'm also a fan of the old series as well. Especially considering the new episodes I practically hated until the third episode.
Though, I had made a vow not to watch Episode 3 after Episode 2 (which had disgusted me so much it's one of the few movie rants I've ever done on any forum) but after hearing so much about how good Episode 3 was, I decided to give it a try. Episode 3 WAS good. But Episodes 1-3 is still total crap compared to Episodes 4-6. I even liked the special effects better in the old series for the most part, since they at the very least looked believable. Lucas tried to cram TOO much eye candy in Episodes 1-3 in comparison.
3 was awesome as well! The battles were baffling, and the final dialouge between Anakin and Obi was so emotional. ;_;[br]Posted at: February 21, 2006, 08:30:45 AM_________________________________________________And now for a classic link:
Original Trilogy all the way, when Vader was menacing and evil, and just made you think "Wow what a bad ass!" Now, after the new trilogy its...hard to see him in that same light. Because well Lucas messed up Ep. III by not wanting acting and just special effects, which making some of Obi-Wans lines sound like something out of a bad Soap Opera >_< But you cant beat the original, there was actual emotion going on, the Lightsaber battles were more personal and really you couldnt see all the openings like you can in the new trilogy saber fights, I still laugh at Episode II with Anakin facing Dooku and he basically opens his arms out to give Dooku a hug (what it looks like) and gets his hand lopped off.
I stand by some the people that said for those that made Knights of the Old Republic should of made the new trilogy I think they could of done a better job with story and so much more then what Lucas did, he kind of killed some his long time characters. I think they should of ripped away his money towards the end and tried to get him to go back to how he used to do it and make at least the last movie better then it was.
