I saw the original trilogy back when I was just a kid. Loved those films, even "Return". The new ones however, lacks ... story, script, proper dialogue, direction - the poor actors have nothing to play with. Only Ian Mcdarmid shines, because he hams it up big time.
I so wish Lucas had hired an editor and a director. I trust the TV series will suck too.

freak`n sweet, I am a Star Wars fan and always will be, it was revolutionary of its time. Lucasarts has done some pretty cool things, except Jar Jar of course. I want to see more, I also want episodes 7,8,and 9 to be made.

Well, you kind of need a screenplay to make the movie...

Djer, I thought that he had already written the screenplay years before the movies were first produced. I think I saw that in the interviews he did about the original trilogy a few years back. I could be wrong, who knows.

As for the purist, I have to agree, I feel that he got wrapped up into the computer generated graphics too much this last time around, and Ja Ja Binks totally ruined the Star Wars Episode 1.

OOh well, hey, we are all entitled to our own opinions!

In fact, he not only wrote the first book, he wrote EVERYTHING. The screenplay, the books...In fact, the books were actually written AFTER the movies came out.

You REALLY need to research these things before you start spouting out random opinions, because I`m about to let you in on a little secret....

psst... Star Wars was not based on a book, all the movies have book adaptations, but none of them were based on anything.
These pictures reminded me of why I liked Star Wars so much in the first place.

The movies, in my opinion, were overrated. But I actually read the book for episode one and it was actually interesting. I`ve never been able to understand why star wars nerds worship George Lucas. He`s just a fat guy that decided to make the books into a movie. If you`re going to give credit give it to the guy who wrote the books.

I do agree though, the newer movies are even worse than the first ones.

Ha. Compared to Hayden Christensen, Mark Hamill is Sir Laurence Olivier. Look it up.

I actually had this portfolio when I was a kid. You could buy the whole set in 8.5x11 prints, it wasn`t expensive.

Wish I`d kept them.

His name is Mark Hamill and compared to some of the acting in the newest 3 he`s not bad.

"I`m a purist. Give me my original trilogy without all of George Lucas` newer CGI imaging. That, plus some truly horrible acting, is what ruined episodes 1-3. Way too much use of "let`s put MORE CREATURES AND SPACESHIPS INTO EVERY SHOT!" Seriously, sometimes less is more."

I think whoever played Luke was the definition of a truly horrible actor.

Interesting, look at row two, picture one. Is that a boob I`m seeing? Seems that Luke was originally thought of as being a woman.

Star Wars is the most overrated piece of crap ever. I mean, sure, it was very cool back in the 17`th century when it was released, but here in the modern world the special effects are so hopelessly outdated they can`t cover for the horrible plot.
