Top Ten Reasons the Star Wars Prequels Aren't that BadGrimmShady
The Top Ten
They turn Vader into arguably the most sympathetic of all fiction
Yeah, it was a well-needed story. - micahisthebest
Whether you liked how it was told or not, the tragic backstory of Darth Vader I believe was effectively told. - GrimmShady
Yeah its no ones fault they weren't born when A New Hope came out.
The prequels allowed for thousands of new fans to join us in experiencing the amazing Star Wars films. - GrimmShady
Like me... - micahisthebest
They weren't mentioned at all in the original trilogy
Thanks to the prequels, we now have a much wider knowledge of the Sith. - GrimmShady
Hayden Christensen may not have satisfied us fans so much, but Ewan McGregor certainly did. - GrimmShady
Yes he did, a great one. - micahisthebest
In certain cases, it is good for someone's past to remain a mystery, but the Original Trilogy did not touch on how Sidious to power at all. I like that the prequels effectively told us how Palpatine rose to power while still keeping his past somewhat of a mystery. - GrimmShady
Opening to episode 3. Period.
Once you have seen the sequences in the prequels you will be incredibly underwhelmed by the battle in the OT. - GrimmShady
Totally true! But 4 and 6 were awesome as well.
Aside from Darth Vaders past, we learn a lot about Obi Wan. And while I believe the films should have touched a bit more on Anakins friendship with Obi Wan, and a little less on this weird forbidden love story, you can clearly see that Obi Wan and Anakin are brothers, and that they have a great respect for each other. This makes that duel between Obi Wan and Vader in A New Hope all the more emotional. - GrimmShady
The Clone Wars T.V. series is but one amazing product of the prequels. These movies truly gave us so much more to explore. - GrimmShady
Yeah, it added SOOO much! - micahisthebest
Awesome villains, unlike the originals which didn't have much, although Darth Vader was great! - micahisthebest
Example Darth Maul Jango Fett and Count Dooku - christangrant
I have to admit, it was probably the best of the prequels. - micahisthebest
Yeah, it actually does. - micahisthebest
Many people will disagree with me on this but I personally didn't mind the backstory provided for Boba Fett. A lot of people said that it made Boba Fett less mysterious and cool, but I think that seeing his dad's head lobbed off before his own eyes is what began Boba Fetts path from the cowardly and admittedly annoying little clone to the rutheless mysterious,bounty hunter we all know and love. - GrimmShady
