They did use state-of-the-art technology, I never said they didn't.

And they didn't have Jar Jar, but they had C-3P0, who's just as bad. Also, Ewoks. Also, a droid that looks like a fast food garbage can.

For every good thing about the Original Trilogy, I can list something bad, and vice-versa for the Prequels. But I don't see the point because people feel how they feel about each, and nothing will change that.

I suppose it's my fault for mentioning George Lucas and Attack of the Clones...

Although I do agree, the pattern in the Star Wars series is that the less he is involved, the better the movies.

Breaking Dawn sounded so horrible on Wikipedia, I aborted my plan to read the whole series altogether, though I'm wondering if I should read all the way through the other books just to give the series a more valid criticism.
Anyone who thinks Canadians are meek and mild-mannered has obviously never seen us during Question Period!

I wouldn't. It may turn your brain to mush. Look what it's done to Stephanie's readers! And I think I'm the only person who, as a feminist, simply hated the original Star Wars trilogy even when I was just a kid, and really hated the new movies. What I could stomach of watching them, anyway.
