My FiancÚ agreed to watch all 6 Star Wars movies with me this last weekend. We are getting married June 19th and have been together for 4 years. During our relationship i have given her endless crap for never seeing any of them. So last weekend out of the blue she said " I want to watch the movies " She actually enjoyed them. I think she was interested in the political aspect of them since she's a poli sci major. What are your ladies thoughts on the movies?

Good grief...they are not quite that bad. Still loaded with plenty of Jedi a$$ kicking goodness.


I actually enjoy watching them. Not as much as the originals though.

As for the opening question...no, my wife couldnt care less about Star Wars or the movies. I did manage to drag her to the last one in the theater.

Question for the thread starter....did you show your wife the original trilogy first? Or did she watch them in order? I would think you would spoil the fun of the Empire cliffhanger if you watched them in order??

I had this delima when we started them. I saw both points. But i decided to go 1-6 in that order. This way she would stay more interested with the story and not be confused. I wish i could have done it the other way though. But the risk was to high of losing her interest...

I think the problem the new ones had was poor casting especially with hayden christensen as anakin skywalker. That's what made it hard to watch for me. Althought 3 was much better than 1 & 2.

I wish i could but i dont think she will watch Lord of the Rings. Dont know why though.

My opinion is that they were horrible and have absolutely no redeeming qualities outside of a couple of fight sequences. They don't have any of the heart of the original trilogy, they don't contain any of the essence of the original trilogy, they're the cheap plastic rip-offs, shiny but completely empty shells of what they could have been. I wish he'd never made them. The most hilarious part is that not one but now two cartoon network animated series have completely blown them out of the water.

This happened with me and my wife a few years ago. I, too, love the political aspect of the show - not to mention the engineering and even the spiritual. After seeing all six of the movies, my wife is now a fan of the show and even watches Clone Wars with me - and really enjoys them.

Have you read Revenge of the Sith yet? Read the book. It will capture your imagination and help replace the damage that Episode I and II did (though I have to admit, I'm in the group that actually enjoyed Episode II).

I didn't think Hayden was a terrible choice. I just think Lucas's directing absolutely sucked. I believe Hayden could have pulled it off if Lucas had any idea how to direct.

While I don't particularly enjoy the animation style of the clone wars, I do very much enjoy the show, and would be very interested in seeing a remake of the 6 movies in this animated form. I bet a lot more could actually be done with the series too.

George needs to move the hell on. I understand the thought process of trying to milk a cow, and do it in a form that kids of today will like, and thus want to follow for years to come, but come on, man. Move the story on. Do the Thrawn story. Do the Jedi Academy story. Do SOMETHING that the fans you created three decades back can look forward to, not just polishing off your old stories. You'd think that somebody somewhere would be in Lucas' ear trying to explain what a cash cow he's leaving on the table, not to mention the legacy he could create by furthering the Star Wars storyline.

Hayden Christensen sucks and sucked the life out of the prequels.

I met him back in 2005, just before the release of ROTS. A director friend of mine asked "Is he unconvincing as himself?".

Besides his shitty acting chops, he didn't have the physical stature( presence) that Vader had too. The guy was suppose to be the messiah of the force, not some extra from 7th Heaven.

Hayden did poorly as Anakin, but Lucas didn't help him out. The interactions between all the actors was clunky and awkward. The way Obi Wan would talk like "My young apprentice...." So much of the dialogue is just cornball crap.

Here is where I wish Lucas would stop his "star wars ended after Return of the Jedi" schtick. The animation engine would be perfect for making something like the Thrawn trilogy into movies. The X-Wing series would be good too. Actually, there are any number of good Star Wars books from the expanded universe that would make kickass animated movies.

Now my interest is peeked. What is a good series of the "Expanded Star Wars Universe". I have heard tale of episodes 7-9? Whats the Thrawn Series, or the Jedi Academy (other than an awesome video game).

Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


To add, I think with a lot of the Star Wars the Old Republic story lines could make excellent movies as well. And it provides a way to break away from the Skywalker characters / story lines.

Read Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising and The Last Command by Timothy Zahn.

That is the "Thrawn series," wherein the New Republic mops up the remnants of the Empire following ROTJ. Ripping good yarn.

Avoid New Jedi Order trash.

Anything by Kevin J. Anderson (Jedi Academy series) is passable. Darksaber is pretty entertaining, so are Tales from Jabbas Palace and Tales of the Bounty Hunters...and Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina.

I personally love the Boba Fett trilogy by KW Jeter....lots of cool crimeworld stuff going on, explains how Fett survived the Sarlacc, etc.

Oh, and Shadows of the Empire is pretty awesome. Set between ESB and ROTJ. Xizor is incredibly cool.

Michael A. Stackpole (http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/17739.Michael_A_Stackpole) writes pretty good stuff, too. Mostly about X-Wing pilots, I think.

I have read 40-50 Star Wars books. As everyone else says, the Thrawn trilogy rules. Here are some others:

Darth Bane Trilogy - set way before the movies, like a thousand years
X-Wing Series - 9 part series featuring Wedge Antilles that starts soon after Jedi and goes alll the way up through the timeline of the Thrawn trilogy (the books actually intersect at one point)
Republic Commando series - takes place during the Clone Wars and shows the human side of a number of clones, great books. All written by Karen Traviss, who is less heavy on the sci fi stuff and heavier on the human interactions

Some other one-off books that I liked - Allegiance, Outbound Flight, Survivors Quest, Darth Maul-Shadow Hunter, Medstar 1 and 2

I think that Lucas has so much money and power at this point that he is incapable of making a good film. IMO the only reason the original trilogy was good, was because he had talented people checking him constantly and a studio looking over his shoulder. With the new trilogy, he got everything he wanted and they were horrible. ROTS was an improvement but still lacked soul or really any interesting conflict since the first two didn't do anything to make me care about anyone involved.

He didn't have a studio "looking" over his shoulder. Star Wars was independently financed by Lucas from his profits from "American Graffiti".

As a matter of fact, he literally saved 20th Century Fox from extinction.

With the new trilogy, he got everything he wanted and they were horrible. ROTS was an improvement but still lacked soul or really any interesting conflict since the first two didn't do anything to make me care about anyone involved.

I like "TPM" quite a bit. Where he screwed up was casting Hayden Christensen and listening to internet chatter, resulting in a horrible "Attack of the Clones". ROTS was better but would have been far better with a different actor as Anakin.

If DiCaprio wouldn't have demanded creative input, he would have made an amazing Anakin, even with the same script.

FWIW, the voice actors in the Clone Wars series are better than any of the actors (save Liam Neeson and maybe Ewan) from the movies.

Agreed. I like TPM as well and Episode III was really strong overall except for Hayden.

AOTC, was the weakest....too much exposition/love story in the middle.....but the Obi-Wan/Jango Fett and Jedi Vs. Count Dooku fighting was cool.

HOnestly, I think Lucas was slightly flawed...Im not a big fan of going backwards with backstory and filling in the gaps for every single character.

I would have prefered a story set after the original movies.

My sarcasm meter did register a pretty high reading there, so hopefully you are kidding.

I am going through all of the Clone-Era books right now. Currently I am reading "Jedi Trial". It didn't get very good reviews but it's not too bad. But holy shit, is it bleak overall. Lots of the "good guys" getting blown to bits.


Here is a general question to all of the Star Wars dorks (myself obviously included): what is your favorite character from the movies or books? Just to make it interesting, you can't select Boba Fett. Mine is Kal Skirata, from the Republic Commando and Imperial Commando novels.

Pineapple Express was a very entertaining movie...and I don't even smoke pot.

They just signed him to play the lead human in the new Planet of the Apes prequel, Rise of the Apes.

I cried through all of the prequels.

It was difficult watching one of my favorite movie trilogies be violently gang-raped.

:LOL:

My sarcasm meter did register a pretty high reading there, so hopefully you are kidding.

I am going through all of the Clone-Era books right now. Currently I am reading "Jedi Trial". It didn't get very good reviews but it's not too bad. But holy shit, is it bleak overall. Lots of the "good guys" getting blown to bits.


Here is a general question to all of the Star Wars dorks (myself obviously included): what is your favorite character from the movies or books? Just to make it interesting, you can't select Boba Fett. Mine is Kal Skirata, from the Republic Commando and Imperial Commando novels.


No, dude. I'm serious. The Thrawn Trilogy is overrated. Even boring.

My favorite is easily Obi Wan.
