I didn't say there was anything wrong with it, but the two aren't the same thing. As for the SW comparison, anyone who feels like Lucas "raped (
) their childhood with the prequels" perhaps needs to seriously cultivate a greater sense of perspective.
Well, I have no way of knowing if you saw episodes 4 - 6 when they were first released, but we had a long long long time to wait. So you can imagine how much time we had to imagine what more Star Wars would be like. And then it didn't live up to our expectations. Don't get me wrong, there are some very cool aspects to the prequels.
Who is "we"? There are plenty of people who watched the OT when it came out and loved the prequels. If ROTJ came out today people would think it was godawful.
