Things like this would've saved the Star Wars prequels for me.

    A double-bladed lightsaber being used like this. It's not like they haven't thought of it, every single game which features a double-bladed lightsaber gives you the ability to throw it and have it return to you, spinning the entire time.

    Want to know what else would have made the prequels better? Anything.

    Indeed. But not pandering to ten year olds is the biggest improvement, I think.

    The easiest way to find out if someone is a die-hard star wars nerd is to ask them if they enjoyed the entire series. Only a retarded fanboy could watch the awesomeness contained in the original trilogy and be content with the pure shit contained in the prequels.

    Bullshit. Only TESB was good. The major requirement for anything related to Star Wars being good is that Lucas not direct it and, even better, have no creative control over it.

    first(fourth) was good, but TESB was awesome. ROTJ was decent, but a major letdown on the level of thunderdome. I get the feeling Lucas wasn't as heavily involved as he claims he was with the original trilogy, and that once he plastered his name all over it the prequels were all his.

    He was the director for both ANH and ROTJ. ROTJ was definitely on par with the prequels. Watch the Holiday Special. You'll see that Lucas was always unhinged. The difference being that he was directing ANH towards adults and the rest towards children.

    This would make the prequels better in my opinion.

    But the problem with the prequels was that by then George Lucas was so larger than life that no one would dare question his "creative material." He was let loose to do whatever the fuck he wanted.

    Hmm... Return of the Jedi was pretty much kiddie fare with all those furfags.

    But Revenge of the Sith, the last film of the first trilogy, is a master piece, just like The Empire Strikes Back.

    And has anyone seen the Sanghai subbed film? A blogpost about it. And some yubtub.

    ROTS was shit. But could probably be saved with creative editing.

    I kinda liked ROTS. It wasn't the greatest Star Wars film or anything, but I still had fun watching it.

    "OH NO! IT'S a METEORZ/ALIEN SPACE ROBOT ATTACKING!!"
    Camera pan shot at the hero with upward angle and epic music in background.
    Hero saves the whole world and gets massive tits and pussy from some slut.

    Actually no. I fell asleep when I watched the first one. Never bothered to finish the rest.
