    I refer to Episodes 1-3 of Star Wars as the biggest budget "B" movies of all time. If I read any Star Wars Literature, I make sure it involves the timeline of Episode 4 or past that time. The first episodes show that total movie making freedom can have it's downside. He should have read the original Timothy Zahn Star Wars trilogy of novels, and then he might have had some good ideas for those movies. If you haven't read the Zahn books, and you love the original trilogy of movies…do so today! Rob

    That reminds me, I don't know if anyone realizes this, but "Lucas Got Lucky".

    I didn't like Star Wars until Episodes 1 – 3 came out… very Fall of the Roman Empire, if anyone know that movie. Spider-Man lost me after the green gob started in on his deal in the first movie. I liked it up until then. I hope Lucas' new TV movies are better then his first three.

    I think I would rather watch Lucas' Howard the Duck movie than watch Episodes 1-3 ever again. He was starting to show his downfall in many aspects of Return of the Jedi. Han became a two dimensional character that you didn't care about, and Leia suddenly became an old woman (after the Jabba sequence). The first twenty minutes of Jedi were flawless. In episodes 1-3, Lucas gave everyone pretty much the same character traits and everyone spoke like they had a dictionary in their mouths, with all the conviction and emotion that the dictionary carries.
