#I wrote this a long time ago, but didn't finish it. Today, I finally added finishing touch and voi'la!!!

I do not mean about a girl... Look below:

It's STAR WARS!!! A series that being loved by millions of sci-fi fans worldwide, including me and my two elder sisters. Although the original trilogy is not from my generation, but my sisters are, they usually "organize" a 3-part marathon during school holidays. I was a young, small boy back then, so I have many time to watch with them. Since that first time, I fell in love with this series that is full of lightsaber, droids, space craft and many more that seems skeptical 30 years ago.

Original Trilogy:
Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope

The first in the series. The first thing I really love about this movie is the opening, with the STAR WARS logo flashing in and out then a 3 paragraphs of prologue story coming out. After the word flashed out, it then shows a long, long movement of extremely huge Imperial Star Cruiser, making all the viewers shocked and awe. Then the camera show inside of the ship the Star Cruiser is chasing, where one tall, talkative C-3pO describe it's fear with R2-D2 around. Then the Star Cruiser moving in for the kill, killing all soldiers in the ships. The tall and powerful Darth Vader walked out of the door, and that villain is so COOL!!! Below the ships, on the planet Tatooine, Ben Kenobi shows Luke Skywalker the ways of the force and lightsabers, the civil war between Empire and Rebels.

I don't wanna talk too much here, don't wanna spoil too much for friends who haven't watch.

And here is the opening crawl I really love:

Star Wars Episode V: Empire Strikes Back

The best blockbuster ever made, this is how good I describe this movie! The movie is tense, full of drama, and most of all, full of actions. With the story progress so smoothly, then added the line "No, I am your father." That is shocking at first, but for me, not at all lah! Watch tons of times already... xD

Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

After you saw the previous two, this is the worst, still exceptionally awesome, because the two is just have the near perfect status. This is the last part of the story tells the end, where the Luke fights Lord Vader and the Emperor for the last time. On the ground, Rebel fights off the final battle of the civil war against the Empire troops.

Prequel Trilogy
Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

After those few years waiting for the new Star Wars, George Lucas gave me this mediocre new installment to the series. The young Anakin is too boring too watch. Who wants to watch the dumb the podrace, the Tatooine struggle???? And one thing, the stupid annoying Gungan, Jar Jar Binks talks so much that a buzzing of a fly is more worth it. But got one thing to love though, the lightsaber duel. The previous duel is just slow pace sword fighting, but this time around, Qui-Gon and the young Obi-Wan (Ben Kenobi) fights the Darth Maul.

Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

I rated this the worst Star Wars in history! Not even The Phantom Menace came close, so that's how bad. Think the podrace is awful? Think again, the teen Anakin Skywalker fell in love with the never seem to age Padme Amidala is just too awful to watch. Who wants love story in Star Wars? I don't think anyone wants to... One thing to love this though, Jar Jar Binks is talking about only ten lines, story of Stormtroopers is told...

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

The best Star Wars since Empire Strikes Back. This should not considered to be in the prequel trilogy story though, because George Lucas wrote this story before A New Hope was written. That means George Lucas is too old for movie making. The story sums up what begins and what continue at A New Hope. Darth Vader is born, Republic has turned to Galactic Empire, and how Darth Vader got his suit and how Leia and Luke was born...

The 2 prequels might be bad, but I still love Star Wars like I did when I was a young boy. I will never forget this extraordinary sci-fi series. There is love and hate with the movie, but I know how to control my hate, like Luke with the Force... haha ;p

I'm sure you know I'll leave comments here as soon as I read this blog post. (^^)
Empire Strikes Back is my all time favorite. The teaching that Yoda gave on the Dagobah System in fact does become part of my belief (^^)
Oh, and if what you said is true, that George Lucas wrote the Revenge of the Sith before A New Hope, then the only conclusion I have is: George Lucas 宝刀老了. haha!
