I think the Sequels are better overall movies than the Prequels. As much as loathe them, the Prequels may be better or (more proto-typical) “Star Wars” movies, but for me there’s just too much bad dialog, awkward/corny acting, overt CGI and goofy writing. Looking back even with its opportunities, I’ve had a better overall time with Sequels. They probably should’ve stretched it to 4 films to clean up questions and holes that The Rise of Skywalker just didn’t have time to answer, but then Disney shot themselves in the foot with some of their decisions.

I never understood the hate for the prequels. And maybe I see kids of this generation growing up liking the sequels, but as for me, the sequels are way worse.

Not going to go in-depth as to my criticism since you probably already know and have heard it alot, but one thing I will add is that the Sequels add nothing to the main story, in my opinion, and for that I see no reason why I would ever watch them again.

And Disney Star Wars clearly knows how to make a good SW movie, Rogue One obviously, so I'll still have hope for the future in some way.

Sequels. Though the prequels still have a place in my heart.....just...not as big a place as the original trilogy or the sequel trilogy.

Also remember when it was cool to trash the prequels? Now all those people are suddenly changing their minds...lol.

Give the sequel trilogy ten years and just like the prequels people will look back and suddenly appreciate them.

Overall the sequels are just better films in almost every way and from a pure Star Wars perspective they are pretty close but the ST gives that similar feeling the OT does.

Both are bogged down with some bad choices though like the chosen one plot or the ST clearly having different directoral views.

Sequel trilogy.

Revenge of the Sith is the best film overall but the other two drag it down.

In short:

Revenge of the Sith > The Rise of Skywalker > The Force Awakens > The Last Jedi > Attack of the Clones > The Phantom Menace.

This. Except I'd swap TFA with TROS but that's just me.

AOTC and TPM being mediocre films with terrible dialogue means that the PT films never win here.

RotS solos as a stand alone and prequels as a whole tell way better story. TFA and TROS are better than APM and AotC tho, TLJ is by far the worst SW movie.

PT>ST, The ST is the furthest thing from Star Wars especially for legends fans. The PT gave us the ROTS novel, All the great games around the clone wars era, All the great clone wars era novels, Original Clone wars tv show as well as TCW. Memorable characters, both Sith and Jedi. The great star wars clone wars comics from dark horse. It enriched the overall lore. What has the ST done? I cant see anyone apart from causal movie watchers liking this atrocity. No hardcore Star wars fan would love this. What characters have they given us? Kylo, Rey,Snoke? lol the worst characters in all of star wars canon or legends, up their with jar jar. Done absolutely nothing for the lore. Literally if anything destroy it.

You should finish ROTS then.

OT: I haven't seen ROS yet so I can't say for sure, but ROTS imo is better than both TFA and TLJ.

The Prequels are a set of movies depicting in detail the origin of one of the most iconic cinematic villains ever! and if that sentence doesn't encapsulate how great that is, then you're not SW fans. even with the flaws the prequels are a wonderful piece of cinematic history.

what Disney has done with the SW material is criminal basically.

The prequel are probably the worst big budgeted movie aside for Revenge of the Sith. They were boring, terrible acting, dialogue and felt way too long for little pay off. Only good thing prequel gave us was Star Wars Clone War series.

The sequels are terrible as a cohesive trilogy, but are all competent movies on their own. Passionless popcorn movies wanting to make a profit, but still competent. The acting is solid, not boring, and has some great moments.

Sequel overall is better even if Revenge of the Sith is slightly better than the sequels.

The Prequels were horribly paced, had cringe worthy dialogue and nobody who came on set came to properly act. The sequels are solid films on their own having properly done everything the sequels failed to accomplish.

ROTS>>>TFA>PM. The rest are irrelevant and the fact TROS destroys the purpose of the OT makes it the worst SW movie out of the bunch. It’s a solid SciFi action movie, but as a SW movie that’s suppose to fit into a story that’s already started, it’s terrible and lowkey disrespectful.

The sequel are a rehash of episodes 4,5 and 6.

I hate how TFA gets away with its terrible unoriginality. So for me it's

1. TROS
2. TPM
3. ROS
4. TFA
5. AOC
6. TLJ

Prequels. By far.

The prequels have execution issues and they have many problems, but they’re at least creative and imaginative, which is the heart of Star Wars in my mind.

I like the politics, time period, world building, characters and even the fighting more. I have a ton of favorite characters from the prequels while only ONE from the sequels: Kylo Ren.

They tell a consistent and cohesive narrative. I feel like the prequels have more of an identity visually.

The sequels are....visually good. But i still don’t understand the point of this trilogy.

To me at least, the sequels just disregard most of what came before them and feel unnecessary. They don’t really add anything to the overall Star Wars saga. This is a trilogy designed to kill every Skywalker off, basically. Also, to make sure that all their accomplishments, hardships and struggles fail. Meh.
