In the 100 days leading up to STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I am counting down my 100 favorite things about Star Wars. Here is today’s entry:
#18: The Prequels
I have already listed Episode 1 on here, so let’s not forget Episodes 2 and 3. You may call them “flawed”, or “not what I was expecting” or whatever…they are still Star Wars. Yes, they do have a different feel to them, but they are a completely different time period, not only in the film world, but in reality. Plus, they were directed all by the same person (even though the original trilogy was all “guided” by Lucas). The key to watching these movies it to view it through the same eyes you saw the original movies. Remember the magic they brought to you. Think of the awe they inspired. No, they are not perfect, but no movie is…except Raiders of the Lost Ark.
