@Trickquestion
The best part was how the whole theater went wild cheering when Vader turned on the Emperor, and then everyone was just dead silent when his mask came off and he gave his final words. It was damned epic.

But yeah, I’m all kinds of hyped. Star Wars is one of the few things I can just get into like a kid and go full geek on.

Also figured I’d post this. One of my biggest complaints about the Anakin Vs Obi Wan fight was that they both had blue lightsabers. Now as much as I understand why (Anakin didn’t have time to construct a red one, Obi Wan needed to be able to claim the blue one at the end, yadda yadda), to me it wasn’t quite perfect without the red on blue.

Thank fucking GOD for video editors with free time:

I’m actually one of the few people who likes both the original films and the prequel films.

Well, most of both the prequels and original films…

I don’t want to rain on your parade but personally I find it hard to get hyped for Star Wars VII when the director JJ Abrams was the director of the two recent Star Trek movies which I hated.

In case you haven’t heard, a Han Solo movie is in the works. I think it’s a great idea.

For all their problems, I honestly did enjoy them. The only parts that I actually did not like were the pod race and Jar Jar. The rest of the "bad" stuff falls under "so bad it’s good" territory for me, and they do have some really cool scenes.

Also too, I don’t know if you’re a fan of the Nostalgia Critic (fellow reviewers tend to either love him or absolutely hate him), but he made a pretty good list about the good things in the Star Wars prequels:
11 GOOD THINGS about the Star Wars prequels

@kleptomage
More than anything I’m hyped because I know it’s going to give me something good. Even if it’s worse than the prequels, it’ll at least have a moment where I get all fired up. I’m fairly easy to please; in fact, I can think of only two movies (offhand, at least) I actually did not like:
– The Last Airbender: Compared to the source it’s a fucking disgrace, on it’s own it’s boring as all hell.
– Silent Hill: For starting out as an amazing adaptation and then completely tossing it away about 2/3rds through, and for being unenjoyable on it’s own because it requires knowledge of the source to understand.

A movie pretty much has to surpass being "bad" and actually piss me off before I’ll not at least be able to enjoy it. Either that, or just have absolutely nothing to offer whatsoever.

Also, the Han Solo movie sounds awesome. I always wished Luke had veered away from the Jedi path and leaned more towards the smuggler turned swashbuckler like Han.

At the very least, that would make a great side comic, like say Luke choose to fuck off with Han instead of facing the Death Star, and just go from that point.

I…actually enjoy the podrace scene.

Yes, it’s way too damn long, but I actually don’t mind it as much as most people. Call me crazy, but it’s one of my favorite scene from the movie, aside from the opening scene where Qui Gon and Obi Wan escape from the Feds onto Naboo, and the final battle(s) of the movie.

And yes, I like Doug Walker/Nostalgia Critic. But I don’t watch him as much as I used too when I first started watching him. He does put out some great stuff every now and them, but now I’m pretty damn casual towards his recent stuff. But I did quite enjoy that video of his.

@kleptomage
I totally understand that to be honest. I was kind of "…ehhhhh…" going to see Revenge Of The Sith. That changed very quickly just by how awesome that movie opened.

@ToskiHero
The Podrace is one of those times where I’ll freely admit that it’s purely a personal reason for disliking it. Granted it was a little too long, but my main reason for disliking it is I honestly did not give a shit about Anakin Skywalker at that point. I know he would become Darth Vader, but I could not at all get invested in that kid. More than anything, I loved Obi Wan and Qui Gon’s chemistry together. And that is saying a lot because I normally don’t care for Liam Neeson, but he fucking nailed that role. As far as I’m concerned, the Podrace was basically one big long break that put the movie on hold, really didn’t contribute to the story, and took time away from the characters I liked.

I’ve kind of lost interest in him too, not because he’s lost his stride and all, but because he keeps shoehorning those skits with all those characters in. For me, all his humor comes from his reactions and outbursts. Like, watch his Catwoman outburst and tell me with a straight face that it’s not funny. For me, other than the skit where he actually got Dante Basco to dress up as Zuko, the skits are just basically putting the review on pause (akin to a commercial break).

Ohhhhhhhh the Darth Maul fight was amazing.

I’m kind of glad Maul didn’t get much dialogue. I felt it fit perfectly with the whole theme where the villains were still shrouded in darkness. What better villain to make you drool for the exposition you know is coming than a villain who tells you nothing?

Especially because the original trilogy had much slower fights. Check out Luke Vs Vader. Even taking the whole technological limitations into account, there was much more talking and much more slow-paced circling and sword play.

Then along comes that face-paced insane thing that was two on one instead of a duel.
