View Full Version : Misc Star Wars Question

If someone has never seen any of the six Star Wars movies and decided to watch them, would they go through them chronologically or numerically I-VI?

I went to see the first one at the theater in 1977. It was a daytime showing and I was working third shift. I went to sleep and didn't see the whole thing.

My son is starting to get into Star Wars, and I'm going to try and keep up.

Enlighten me, GoChiefs.

This.

THe first (now last) 3 are by far the best.

Don't sit there for days explaining to your kid how Lucas feels all democracies are doomed and end up in dictatorships.

A lecture he doesn't care about.

You can, but the last 3 flicks become very....void of content and heavy on the preachy and dark aspects of life...

I would watch them as Episodes 1-6. If you watch them in order of release you'll end up with a bad taste in your mouth. It would be like having a great appetizer, a good main course and then a turd for desert. At least if you watch them in episodic order you can purge the horror of Episodes 1-3 from your mind.

That's EXACTLY why you don't show him the last (true first) flicks right off the bat.

It's like telling the kid the greatest hope for a GALAXY only got wise after he was fucking hooked up to machines, burned in fire, damned near killed his wife in a domestic violence dispute gone horribly jedi wrong, and once his son was busy being fucking ELECTROCUTED by the creepy pedo from the Family Guy he figured it MIGHT be a good gawdamned time to grow a pair and get some fucking morals.

THEN THE FUCKING GOOD GUY (meaning EVIL FUCK FOR 3 MOVIES) finally ends the Empire.

I don't know how old the kid is, but more sophisticated special effects may catch his eye more than the superior story, characters, acting, direction, pacing, editing, etc.

My wife and I actually started watching them last week - we started 1-6. We're at IV now, and I have to say it actually works better if you watch original trilogy, then prequels (quality, notwithstanding).

Ima have to disagree with everyone here. Yes, I agree that 1-3 are crap, 3 being complete garbage.

But young kids are going to be much more impressed with the special effects than the story line. Let him watch the first 3 first. He'll probably get into it with the pod races and pretty light saber fights and cool spaceships and robots and blah blah fucking blah.

At that point, he should be involved enough in the story to be able to ignore the old special effects and 70's haircuts to truley enjoy the last 3.

The solution is simple, people.

Have him watch 4-6.

Then 1-3

Then after that watch 4-6 AGAIN. He'll get the taste of 1-3 out of his mouth and this way he can adeptly pay attention to the ins and outs of a death star, and debate if the Enterprise/Borg/Klingons could join forces and take it down

I thought it was hilarious that they explained the decline in quality of stormtroopers by saying that each successive generation of clones are a less accurate copy of the original. Basically by the time the original trilogy comes along, the stormtroopers are akin to severely inbred morons.

Well, that would explain a lot. They're bringing all sorts of technology into this movie and getting their butts kicked by some oversized squirrel with flint weapons. You know the engineers who designed all their weapons have to be throwing a fit.

In my opinion, you are ruining Empire for your kid if you show him I-III first. I agree with DeezNutz and everyone else that has already stated, he needs to see IV-VI first. IV-VI will put his imagination to work. I-III is a CGI-fuck fest that lacks any soul or imagination.

Watching ANH, Empire, and Jedi is a cinematic adventure that needs to be experienced in its rawest purest form.

I have some Star Wars questions.

1) how did George Lucas write into the script of ROTJ Leia saying she knew what her mother (Padme) looked like being that she dies "when she was very young" and that she was "sad" when Padme died in child birth?

2) If Vadar (Anakin) was so strong with the force and could sense that Luke was his son, how did he not sense that Leia was his daughter when he was right next to her at the beginning of ANH?

3) How does Vadar never acknowledge C3PO in the original movies?

4) Why does Vadar keep saying "Obi Wan has taught you well" in the older movies when ObiWan didnt really teach much of the force to Luke, Yoda did. The only part I remember ObiWan teaching him was basic stuff while on the Falcon in ANH.

5) Did George Lucas even rewatch 4-6 before writing 1-3?

IMO the newer set of SW movies took away from the older set due to missing detail attention.

1.) Eh, women. Guessing and bullshit.

2.) She had no knowledge of the force herself, and thus her force "beaper" was weak at best. And of course Vader was more robot than man, so the force should be less "natural" for him.

3.) Do you acknowledge that "friend" in real life? You know the one.

4.) Because he did teach him stuff? Wow. OK, Matt Cassel, have you ever seen one of the movies? This portion of your post bounced off the crossbar.

5.) I'm going to say "yes."

And the special "anger" effects built into Hayden Christensen's character, complete with eyes literally on fire

And the entire character of General Grievous, including his purpose in the movies, his dumbass coughing hangup and the way he was designed (playing into shitty alien design)

And the kid who played Anakin in the first movie. I know he's a child actor who was given ATROCIOUS dialogue, but he still sucked

Um, it's not.

Vader has no idea it's his son in the X-Wing at the end of ANH. Hence the line: "The Force is strong with this one."

Then, in Empire: "That is the system, and I am sure Skywalker is with them."

Not too many force sensitive guys named Skywalker running around the galaxy. But Vader had no idea it was his son until he heard the name.

Well, it was explained at the end of Episode III. She lived with the Organa royal family on Alderaan. Bail (Jimmy Smits) was a senator. She was the Organas' adopted daughter. Alderaan was a prominent world so calling her Skywalker was not a good idea. Clearly she didn't know she was a Skywalker either.

Luke knew he wasn't a Lars because either Obi-Wan or Owen told him about his real father...probably Obi-Wan and then Lars decided, ah the hell with it.

I don't see it as weak sauce. There's nothing about the force that should enable you to sense your own flesh and blood. Only another strong force presence.

After abandoning the mind-probe(torture droid)during her interrogation aboard the Death Star, Vader attempted to read her mind using the force. Instead, he was surprised that all he got was a mental reflection of himself, a mirror so to speak. He could not read her, and he could not figure out why this was the case.

As to Luke, Qui-Gon had instructed either Yoda or Obi-Wan(?)from beyond the nether that Luke would be safest on Tatooine as Vader would never again set foot on the planet to avoid the emotional conflict it would create in him as he set about assuming his new reality as a Lord of the Sith/Darksider.

As to Luke, Qui-Gon had instructed either Yoda or Obi-Wan(?)from beyond the nether that Luke would be safest on Tatooine as Vader would never again set foot on the planet to avoid the emotional conflict it would create in him as he set about assuming his new reality as a Lord of the Sith/Darksider.

This is from the E3 book right? Still haven't read it. I hear it's awesome.

Well, it was explained at the end of Episode III. She lived with the Organa royal family on Alderaan. Bail (Jimmy Smits) was a senator. She was the Organas' adopted daughter. Alderaan was a prominent world so calling her Skywalker was not a good idea. Clearly she didn't know she was a Skywalker either.

Luke knew he wasn't a Lars because either Obi-Wan or Owen told him about his real father...probably Obi-Wan and then Lars decided, ah the hell with it.

I don't see it as weak sauce. There's nothing about the force that should enable you to sense your own flesh and blood. Only another strong force presence.

In the book "Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader", Vader himself pays a visit to Bail on Alderaan. Baby Leia was present, and Vader could not sense either her true lineage nor any force-sensitivity in her. As it is well known, Vader lost a very great deal of his power due to the injuries sustained on Mustafar.

Good Lord man, the book puts everything together SOOOOOO much better than the movie! Had I not read the book prior to my first screening, I would have been VERY disappointed in Epi III.

I once read something that made the case that the thing that makes the most sense is to watch the original trilogy up to the point in the beginning of Jedi where Yoda dies, and then watch the prequels as a sort of flashback before finishing Jedi.

Kirshner should have been brought back for Jedi, IMO.
