Over the last few nights I have watched on BluRay EpI, II and III.
Apart from some bad acting and rubbish dialog and of course JarJar
They are good films, especially III which is a fantastic film.
In fact I am more peeved now that they brought back Palpitine in IX, it ****s all over the prophecy.
I think they also missed a great chance in IX or in the ST in general to revisit Coruscant, it's such a great world for visuals.

Couldn't agree more, and I think the sequels have actually made me appreciate the prequels so much more. The prequels were well-constructed, carefully-created, thoughtful, and faithful to the OT. Of course, there was some infamously-terrible dialog, some annoying characters, and occasional bad acting, but these are offset by the high points - brilliant lightsaber duels, cohesive plot, battle scenes, and memorable characters. More than this thought, the prequels expanded-upon the Star Wars lore and mythology of the OT, and gave us background and context. The sequels, on the other hand, are just regurgitated rubbish for the instant gratification generation.

Jeez.. can't really remember..
The whole story just builds and builds and builds
.. and suddenly I was asking myself: is it really going there .. and then it went there .. a few times
Like.. Ahsoka.. her story starts so small and simple compared to where it ends up.
The Clones! Whoa boy! As the seasons went on and dug into them.. they really changed from just a faceless bunch to having their own depth.

Speaking of the Clone Wars, I will be getting Disney+ soon and will give them a go ... well I have watched season 1 allready when it was on netflix briefly , and some excellent episodes in there - but a lot of filler too , has anyone got a definite list of episodes to watch that deal with the real story ?
apart from going to iMdB and getting the 'top rated episodes' feature ?

Maybe for something like the 30th anniversary of TPM, they could do official Special Editions of the Prequel Trilogy and create new edits which would permanently replace ‘the originals’. If they could do this for the original trilogy, then it’s certainly possible for the Prequels. They could make a big deal about it being your last time to get the original cuts then launch the new editions with the improved edits.
