    Laugh at the OT and PT all you want, but Lucas and his team created over 120 patents in relation to movie making. The things they created were completely innovative and paved the way for film making today.

    None of us would be here without the PT, period.

    We’d be playing MSF or some Dragon game

    I don’t agree with the voices, but obviously the CGI looks bad. Jar Jar was one of the first CGI characters. I’m pretty sure this movie came out before Avatar, which was “technological genius” or whatever.

    I did a ten page paper in high school about how the prequels are good (mostly jokey, but there was some legit info). People didn’t like the CGI because it was new. It hadn’t been perfected yet. But what’s impressive is all the stuff that they could do with it. They took a leap and tried something new, and I applaud them for it.

    sorry, what I meant was not that the cgi was bad per se, for example the space stuff was great, and I don't think jarjar for example looked real fake or anything, it was more how it looked overall. like, the scenes where they are flying over the sand dunes just looks like it's on a set. the lighting doesn't seem to change so it looks phony overall imo.

    wait, cgi yoda was real bad lol, but overall I meant looking fake, not bad cgi, if you get my distinction
    Maybe End Game isn't for you

    That's an odd take.

    Regardless, the PT are terribly made movies.

    Some of that stuff was the first time that technology was used. Some of it was the 2nd time after the raiders of the lost ark movies. As technology advances, things improve and usually the first iteration of something is obviously unpolished and imperfect.

    Honestly, all movies are bad movies. All books are bad books. Live life. Life is good.
  • Jurassic Park CGI was awesome. Sooooo goooood! Great story, great effects, great film, kudos all around. Still one of my favorites and anybody who says otherwise spends their days hanging around outside the wrong cantinas.

    I mean, the ST is far superior to the PT, I think we can agree on that at least

    No, that's a bad joke.

    I'm not a fan of racist voices and terrible cgi/lighting.

    Racist voices? So every Alien should sound like a white American male? Because that in itself isn't racist or diverse is it? lol

    I liked the CGI look to the PT, everything looked clean and different, before hostile take over and a tyrannical evil Empire controlling the galaxy - it gave the trilogy and that era its own "feel" that stood out.

    Lucas also wanted to show the vastness and diverse Galaxy before the dark contrictive times of the OT, which was almost impossible to do without CGI.

    ST went back to old school, small locations and set design, and minimal populations etc. There was no real need to show off a Galaxy already shown to a great extent - but then we get the Rabbit Horses in TLJ - worse than anything the PT did on a CGI level.

    Lol

    You completely missed why the voices are racist. Go back and actually watch the movies and then use a tiny amount of critical thinking to evaluate the interaction between the characters and their voices

    Seen the movies hundreds of times - don't see what you are so triggered about.

    That's just it, no problem unless you look for something to complain about.

    Unlike the ST, lol.

    disagree, because the effects in the first one looked way better than later. the pod racing scenes looked pretty goof iirc, compared to the naboo/finale stuff. They had the technology, it was just terrible execution of the lighting

    Some effects used in the PT weren’t available for the OT. I think most people agree, a lot of that was not used in the best way. CGI can be employed horribly and it’s cool shows like the Mandalorian are using it more sparingly and executing it better.

    I meant first PT vs second/last PT, not OT v PT. tbh I don't remember what we were even discussing itt bc they all get bumped whenever boo comes around and it's hard to keep track lol

    If you haven’t seen it, I recommend watching some of the Mandalorian “behind the scenes” series on Disney+, can’t remember the title of it.

    Some great insight into how technology has evolved, not just in SW, but movies in general. Also cool how they used the old with the new and relied far less on CGI. I suspect the “Volumne” will be used in some fashion in a lot of movies in the future.
