I just stick with the original trilogy. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm no Star Wars Purist, and there is some good stuff in the prequel trilogy (especially the last one), but for the most part they're just a boring mess, and they're best left unwatched. The original movies is enough Star Wars for me. Though i would be interested in seeing Topher Grace's edit of the three prequels into one supposedly pretty good film. That might be worth it.

The thing that's going to save TH and LotR is that they already existed as two stories written in that order. They already worked as one long story. So as long as PJ & Co. don't mess that advantage up by overemphasizing things like the importance of the ring, the real story of the Necromancer, or Saruman's eventual turn, essentially showing their hand and blowing the later reveals, they should be fine. I'm sure they're well aware of this, though. Personally, i think they've done a fine job of it so far, though there's still a lot of story to go. It really is a delicate balance... i hope they're up to it.
