The End of the Force
I promise you, this will be the last Star Wars related post for a very long time. (Unless something starwarsy happens to me soon)

So I actually gathered up some strength and rewatched Episode II as well. And you know what? I am much more forgiving towards it this time around. Maybe we do have to re-watch the originals before watching the new ones. There were a couple of moments that were cheezy (everything that included Jar-Jar). Yes, Anakin is an annoying fuck, but hey - he is a dark side hero. And even more - Amidala is even more darkside then he is. So she is even more annoying than he is. Yoda fighting scene is really nice. The entire battle starting with the three on the arena and turning into the clone war was great. The CG is very good and moreover - in style with the later episodes. Well, except for Naboo that I think was blown up before we see it later anyway and the Republic ships - but these were also destroyed, right? Um, the clone armor was not the same as the storm troopers armor, and I think they are the same, but the storm troopers were made 20-some years later, so maybe they have the next level armor (more dorky looking one). So I am actually satisfied with it.

I will not redempt Episode I, nor will I rewatch it until Episode III comes out (May 15th, 2005 btw). So I still think that one sucked, but the second one was ok - it served the purpose. The lovestory of Anakin and the pedofile Amedala that explains why did Annie choose the dark side - that is shown splendidly. I now eagerly await Episode III.

As I promised, I will no more post about this for a while, but I will add some things to my interest list. :)

in my opinion, the CG is what ruined the newer ones. Rewatching A New Hope really points it out. When you see the Banthas (big hairy things that the Sand People ride) compared with the Stormtroopers lumbering beasts, you can clearly tell that the beasts are CG, whereas the the Banthas look convincingly real. In the Cantina, there is no CG, and it all looks real. Conversely, the "clone wars" were so fake it hurts to watch.

I was also expecting much more out of the clone wars.

I think the only points worth watching are when ObiWan goes to the clone planet (those tall aliens are pretty convincing) and the fight between Dooku and Obi, Ani, Yoda. And between Windu and Jango Fett.

Likewise, with Episode I, the only points worth watching are the pod racing and the fight between Maul and Obi/QuiGon

I think the pod racing was impossible to watch, and i have a lot of complains about the lightsaber fighting techniques in the first one.
As for CG, I find it much more annoying in the remastered old ones, than in the new ones. So what - the banthas were hairy, the others were slimy. Whatever.
Ok, I no longer know where I was going with this...
