Star Wars Question

Why aren't episodes 1-3 as loved as the other ones?

I mean I grew up watching and loving the prequels. Mainly because I was always a huge fan of Padme Amidala. I also developed a love for the younger Obi-Wan Kenobi. I mean I know that Jar Jar always gets hate which to this day I still don't get. I mean is it seriously just cause he's an unnecessary comic relief? I mean he reminds me of several other comic reliefs that people love like Olaf from Frozen and a little bit of Dobby from Harry Potter so why does Jar Jar get all the hate? Please don't tell me he's the main reason the prequels aren't as popular? I mean I was excited to see how Vader became...well Vader and how Luke and Leia's mother died. Again the big main reason the prequels were my favorite was because of Padme so maybe if she wasn't a character I liked, I might not have been as big of a fan either but she's really the one that won me over.

A lot of people just find JarJar more irritating than funny. Also, there are some scenes where the acting or the writing isn't as well done as in the original trilogy. Finally, the story of the prequels have to be predictable to some extent because they're prequels - the fact that Anakin goes dark side and becomes Vader is well known - and there are always people who will prefer a less predictable story to one which just shows how already known events occur.

I've never understood the hate the prequels and Jar Jar get. I'm like you, I've always preferred them over the originals. And also like you, a big reason that I like them better is because my personal favorite character (in my case, Jar Jar) is in the prequels. But that aside, I still find the characters and the stories a lot more interesting and engaging than in the originals.

Well I actually do like the originals. I'm just used to enjoying the prequels cause those were what I grew up on.

I don't know and I don't care. The idea that people dislike the Prequels because of one character, Jar Jar Binks, is so ridiculous that I have to question their intelligence. Especially since Jar Jar is only prominent in one movie, "The Phantom Menace".

Personally, I'm a major fan of the Prequel Trilogy. And I'm aware there are a lot of people who are also fans of this trilogy, even if the mainstream media and others like to pretend otherwise.

I dont get it either. I certainly enjoy them alot more than Episodes 7 and 8. The whole " They're predictable and over use of CGI or they dont like Jar Jar" is petty and ridiculous for hating all three movies and at this point they are just jumping on a bandwagon. Some film website in the media did a fact check on Disney Star Wars and it may not be the same CGI but they did more CGI in one movie than The Phantom Menace almost. They did practical FX too yes. But they certainly didn't get rid of the CGI.
AND if TRUE Star Wars fans listen To Mark, Harrison and Carrie( now her past stories) they will know that the Originals were not that great with dialog in places and were full of annoying creatures too. So there is no such thing as a perfect Star Wars movie. But I think that the majority of Star Wars fans DO enjoy Episodes 1-6. But there is always going to be whiny fanboys with a feather up their ass about something. That is why George Lucas Retired. Nothing he did was ever good enough for them. If not for him they wouldn't have Star Wars. Now they want him to come back. I read it all the time on Youtube. So I would ignore it. As a HUGE Fan myself. I roll my eyes and tell them to grow up and get a new hobby.

I don’t hate them, in fact Revenge of the Sith is my favourite Star Wars movie,but I believe it’s usually the real hardcore fans that hate them but I was only a teenager when the prequels were out and I grew up with them and I always enjoyed them,Anakin and Padme are still my favourite characters and while I can understand why people dislike Jar Jar it didn’t ruin the movies for me,truth be told I’m more disappointed with the Disney trilogy and it seems that the hatred has been transferred to The last Jedi and now people are saying that it’s the worst Star Wars movie ever.
