So if these films actually turn out half decent, we bitter nerds of the interwebs deserve credit and praise for redeeming the franchise.
Well, JJ's doing them, so I hope you like your Star Wars with a side of lens-flare and camera-shake.
I'm not a big JJ fan, but he managed a pretty decent 80's Spielberg impersonation with Super 8, so here's to hoping he will take that tack and try to embrace the OT-era visually.

Just curious: in what order do you guys tend to view the films in the Saga?
I just watch whatever happens to be on Spike.

But seriously, because I've seen all six so many times, it really does not matter which one I watch. I have never sat down and watched all six in any order back to back to back.

I'll only watch on Spike when I'm really in the mood to take four hours to make it through one film.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

Spike does love to cram a lot of commercials into a Star Wars film, don't they? You barely get into a new scene before ten more ads for Honey Nut Cheerios cockblock everything.

You're putting words in his mouth. He said before the dark times, before the Empire. Not before the PT. The PT is part of the Republic era.

Can we all agree that the line may have been clumsy but it wasn't random?

Oh, really? So, the PT lasted over a thousand generations? No?

What fraction of a period of time lasting over a thousand generations do you suppose that the time span of the PT would take?

Hence the words "of course".

I started a rewatch last year, and started with the PT, although it's been months since I watched RoTS and I haven't done ANH yet. This will be the first time I've watched them in chronological order.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

I think I'm going to watch a couple of the original theatrical versions of the OT from the 2006 two-disc DVD releases of the films. Right now it's the only way to watch the unaltered original edits from 1977-83 unless you still own the videocassettes that came out in the eighties and nineties (or download them from some source).

They're not digitally cleaned and remastered and the sound and picture quality on the bonus discs doesn't live up to that of the Special (now official) Editions, but they're still the original 1977, 1980 and 1983 versions of the movies....and unless Disney and Lucasfilm have a change of heart they'll probably be the only discs containing them for the foreseeable future.

Could not the "dark times" refer to the entire conflict with the Trade Federation (which had already begun as of the opening scene of TPM)? Before Darth Maul appears, it's likely the Republic had enjoyed generations of peace.

No, only PT hate has the power to last a thousand generations.

And the words "could have" are still out of place.

Judging from the comic series of the same name, the term "dark times" is supposed to represent the post-ROTS period.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

Now rumors are starting to circulate that The Clone Wars is over. I think that officially puts the entire franchise in flux.

The Clone Wars: Status Unknown
Detours: Status Unknown
Original Cast: Status Unknown
1313: Status Unknown
Expanded Universe: Status Unknown

Hello Disney, anybody there?
