If a lightsabre would deflect a shot from a blaster, I`m sure it would easily deflect a .45 slug. ;-)

Pretty cool, but it wouldn`t be much use against a .45 auto.

It`s not that they used them a lot more in the prequels, they just showed the extension/retraction a lot more. In the original trilogy almost all of the extensions/retractions happened off screen. Why? Because it was much more difficult to film the activation before CGI. It was a freeze-frame type shot where everyone in the scene would have to hold perfectly still while a stagehand swapped the retracted sabre with the extended one, and then animating the blade extension on the film by hand, one frame at a time. CGI made it a lot easier - in the prequels, EVERY extension and retraction occurs on screen.
HTH~

How could they overuse something that was used MUCH more in the time frame of the prequels?

That`s like saying a WWII movie used too many Nazis in it.

The main thing I took away from this is that they massivly overused the lightsaber in the prequel films.

It`s much funnier if you think of every ignition as an erection and retraction = roosterblock

@Davio, it does that in the original movies too. Same with the ignition (~0:27). I blame fail technology.

@enthrzn: The prequels are inferior. They shouldn`t even have been included. Putting them in second place is a moderately acceptable alternative.

Anyone else notice that the video is NOT in chronological order? It`s actually in the order the movies were released in.

So the quality of the Star Wars movie is inversely proportional to how many lightsabers are ignited?

The only thing I got from this video is that there were like 50 times as many ignitions and retractions in eps 1-3 than there were in eps 4-6. Do I win? Was that the point of this video? Do I get a cookie, or + 1 internet?

Request denied, you knew exactly what this clip was going to be about and still decided to watch it, so stop whining.

I always figured a lot of fans splooged their pants when they saw Darth Maul unleash the double saber. On the other hand they left out the coolest use of the saber: Qui-Gon Jinn burning through a door.

They definitely missed several.
When the Emperor is egging Luke on to strike him down on the Second Death Star as his friends are dying in space. And then Vader stops him with his crimson blade, while the Emperor cackles in "victory". Where was THAT one?

For me, that was a total waste of time. But, I`m sure that somewhere, there are at least 200 fat guys with Cheeto`s stained fingers and bad acne in their mother`s basements, sprouting raging hardons over this.

Lightsabers are dangerous. How do you know you won`t accidently smack and burn your someones face when you turn it on?

(Psst. I dunno if "burn" is the right word to use, I know NOTHING about Star Wars)
