Phantom menace is the best prequel though, it's certainly the one that's the most 'star wars'. Sith is my favourite prequel but it's not the best.

Clones is like film aids.

I recently rewatched the prequels and have to agree. Phantom menace is not as bad as people paint it out to be. It's definitely the closest in tone/ structure to the original trilogy. It has some great set pieces (pod race is good) amazing score - dual of the fates is superb and the best lightsabre fight (2 v maul)

It does however have a lot of crap - awful child actors, stupid cgi, political plot nonsense, jar jar...

Clones is easily the worst Star Wars film. Mostly garbage. The whole plot is basically irrelevant as it doesn't really move the story along aside from the dire "romance" and the yoda fight is laughable when you think about it.

This.

It's not a good film at all but I think the disappointment of it has made people hate it more than it actually deserves. By the time Clones and Sith came out people knew they were going to be gooseberry fool and so the memory of them doesn't sting as much.

Speaking of prequels, I'm still hoping for a new Pod Racer game. The Frostbite engine would make it look so.damn.good. Why is it not happening?! EA should get Criterion on that gooseberry fool as soon as their next main project is done.

I enjoyed the prequel trilogy. I can see why people hate it, but gooseberry fool man, it's worth it for Ewan McGregor's performance as Obi-Wan alone.

See I never took to him in those, just seemed to be in it for the sake of it and the faux British accent grated. He was the best actor in sith though, no doubt.

I love how everyone has jumped to that conclusion with certainty, like LucasFilm would make such a thing that obvious

I have no idea why people would think this means Luke is dying.

I like how quickly we've gone from Return of the Jedi to The Last Jedi :lol:. I quite like the title though, and the change of the logo to red is interesting, it looks really good.

Luke dies because he's not the protagonist any more, he's the mentor. Every hero's mentor dies otherwise what's the point of the hero? The mentor could save the day himself.

Or Luke realises that the Jedi are silly and not for him.

Luke abandons the Jedi Order's knightly ways and gets a job as an interstellar bus pilot. The film chronicles his struggle to reconcile his dreary life with his adventurous past and wild ambitions, and his subsequent descent into depression, leading him to pick up a devastating spice addiction (hence the paprika-red logo).

The Force Awakens crawl refers to Luke as the last Jedi...

A friend of mine thinks it refers to Kylo Ren. He thinks he'll turn to the light side and Rey will either die or turn to the dark side. The red logo might be hinting at Kylo's lightsaber colour.

The logo is red because the return of the Jedi logo was red, it's like poetry.

Jedi is plural. The knights of ren could be considered the last of the Jedi. I'd imagine it refers to luke fin and Rey, possibly Leia although that may be written out.

Luke tells Rey her real parents are, she seeks these evil parents out and turns to the darkside with Kylo, leaving Luke as the Last Jedi.
