Re: Question to those most disappointed with the SW prequels

It's hard to write off the similarities to Hidden Fortress or Jack Kirby's New Gods as mere coincidence.
Of course not - ditto for the others I mentioned. They were all influences. Some moreseo than others. The end result is still a combination of those influences unlike what anyone had seen before. That's the key point.

ETA:
I'm amused (and enjoying) how the conversation has shifted from a critical discussion of the prequels, to a critical discussion of the original film and the saga as a whole.
