Before you say anything, I didn't compare the numbers of the prequels because they happened many years later, so there's additional hype that factors in.

Wouldn't that have more to do with Star Wars becoming such a hit. It's not really a surprise that Ep IV didn't get anywhere near as much as V & VI on it's opening weekend. Nobody would have known how amazing Star Wars was back then.

Another movie about a relatively unknown time. Like Bane. Or the original grey/dark jedi that were exiled to korriban.

Or the 1000 years of peace. We could just have a montage of Yoda sitting in the Jedi Council chairs in various postures.

Yes, but the fact is, those kind of ideas work better in books or games.

Well done.

It's just compared to other mass appeal, sci fi films it doesn't hold up when compared to ET for example. That's a film for kids that was more thematically interesting and on the whole a better film (in my opinion, obviously).

I don't have anything against George Lucas, american graffiti is a good film. I just don't care for star wars and stated that.

Just because you didn't like the SW films, it doesn't mean that ET is better.

As far as being more thematically interesting...yeah, no. Not in my opinion.

Guys....

The prequels weren't that bad. And the original trilogy wasn't that good.

It absolutely would.

My point was that it wasn't the director, but more the hype surrounding the movies that made them box office hits.

I dunno, I was at work one day and it wasn't busy ad they were doing a Star Wars marathon, so I watched the last two prequels so they're still fresh in my mind. Dialogue is poor, acting isn't that great either, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't entertained by watching them. They're aesthetically really pretty to watch, too. Some of the landscapes they created are like works of art.
