The biggest issue with the Prequels is the dialogue, not any of that nonsense, because issues like that can be found with every movie if you look hard enough. They are real and they are trilogies whether you like them or not. If the only Star Wars trilogy to you is the original, then you should be able to find more than enough to erase it from existence as well, being that the others aren't real.
People have been picking apart the OT for decades and what you claim is inevitable hasn't happened, because the OT is internally consistent, doesn't meaningfully contradict its own logic, and respects the sanctity of its character arcs. The entire premise of Episode II requires everyone in the movie to ignore travel distances and motives firmly established in Episode I, and it cannot exist within the same story.The case against Episode VII isn't as strong, but that movie also violates the established rules; admittedly in ways a sensible viewer could fairly chalk up to creative license, were it not for the fact that the creator was shut out of the process - justified entirely on the grounds that a corporation now owned the IP. While this is legally and perhaps even morally sound (tell that to The Beatles) ownership isn't canon. Almost everyone who has cared about Star Wars since Lucas was in control views the sequels as high stakes fanfiction, and that's where canon comes from. Not corporate ownership, audience consensus. And sorry but this also applies to your extended V. C. Andrews collection, and that bitchin' fight scene with Legolas in the second Hobbit movie.
What are you talking about?What does travel distance have to do with anything?The original trilogy is extremely simple. These are the good guys and those are the bad guys and the bad guys lose. Character arcs are boring and simple. Fights are boring and simple. They do not go into the Jedi or Sith. It's just good guys vs bad guys. Cliche guardians of peace and justice. Canon does not have to be liked. It doesn't have to be good. Dragon Ball Super is Canon and it isn't anywhere near as liked as Dragon Ball Z, and retcons some things from the previous series as well as ignore rules and struggles of previous character arcs. It is still Canon.

He was actually supposed to fight Yoda in episode 2 instead of dooku but he had a bunch of backlash.
It would have fit so much better since he was going into politics as well. Plus he had this uncanny ability to not die on the battlefield when he should have by all rights.
ya and the way they just eliminated him in a Disney book instead of saving him for the next trilogy, I don't know why they eliminate all their opportunities. Just like Asoka tano was alive but instead they killed her off in the new movie as a force voice
I like them, but they are overrated to me. They are the quintessential films to see if all of them, as they started it all, but not as good as many make them out to be in comparison to other films.
I think mostly they were super innovative for their time and raised the bar on what people expected from their sci fi movies
On that I agree
She says "so that's how democracy ends, with thunderous applause". It really speaks to how the u. s. is headed towards dictatorship under this "president"
I disagree, but cool
Why do u disagree?
I like the originals, but they are too simple. These are the good guys and there are the bad guys, who are extremely incompetent. I never really care for any of the characters, except Vader and Solo. Action sequences are bad. They don't go into depth about the Jedi, except they were once the guardians of peace and justice. Luke trains a bit on screen and that's it.
Ill agree with the incompetant it. It spawned the meme about stormtroopers can't aimBut there is theories out there that the reasom was cos they were instructed to not kill luke
Also action has never been a good point in star wars. Either looks to messy like ep 7 or to choreographed like ep 3
Those theories don't make any senseChoreography in 3 was great. At times it looked a little too much but you take the good with the bad. Overall it was great. The main issue with the prequels were the dialogue. The sequels looked great. That's pretty much it. They were visually appealing.
We dont talk about ep2 dialgoue
I meant all of them. Attack of the Clones has the worst.
That's a great reply! Don't worry though, my comment was intended to point out how ridiculous the statement is to make.
I started. I missed them.
Haha... well done
There are so many classic lines in Star Wars lol I can respond to most comments perfectly with them.
Before the dark times, before the Kennedy empire.
