Default Star Wars

So the young fella is finally at an age where i can share the magic of Star Wars with him. Looking forward to the next few weekends, great memories from when i first watched them with my da and hopefully he'll feel the same )

What do you think though, should i start with Episode IV or I?

Watch it in machete order.

Episode IV: A New Hope. Meet the most interesting characters and see the story that got the ball rolling.
Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. The best of the bunch, with some of the most memorable lines, including “Do, or do not. There is no try.”
Episode II: Attack of the Clones. If you thought Luke was whiny, wait till you meet his dad! There’s some symmetry between episodes II and V, which makes the transition from 1980s cinematography and effects to 2000s filmmaking a little less jarring.
Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. “The Chancellor’s all ‘dark side’ this and ‘Sith’ that. I think he’s trying to tell me something.” Anakin becomes Darth Vader, the Jedi Order is destroyed, and we know how the Republic became the Empire, which leads us to…
Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Ewoks. Ewoks everywhere. Yub nub!

No I haven't, really doubt I could put myself through them to be honest.

From a technical viewpoint the prequels are outstanding. However, Hayden Christiansen is an abomination plus the age of the characters always bothered me a bit. Seems like Queen Amidala was a bit of a nonce

The last four flicks were pretty poor, hoping the new ones will be a tad better

Looking forward to seeing Luke with the long Jedi Master beard.

Saw the originals when I was a smallie and loved em. Then watched one of the newer ones when made in later years and it gave me a fucking headache. Watched no more of them after that....

Agreed. Also agree with Perse on Hayden Christiansen, he's an abysmal actor.

The Phantom Menace is a disgrace of a movie. The kid, Jar Jar Binks and all that shite about Miticloreans. Absolute bollocks

George Lucas was lucky enough to drive ep 1 down our throats and while it was out and out dross and I would personally kill Jar Jar if given the chance it was a starting point of sorts for the entire franchise. The books of the expanded universe are much more enjoyable.
