Why I Love The "Star Wars" Prequels (And You Should, Too)

I hope the author wrote this under a pseudonym; that’s a bold thing to admit. But really, the prequels weren’t a complete loss, as they did give us another batch of excellent soundtracks by John Williams.

The prequels tell a different kind of story than the original trilogy told, which was jarring for many fans. Instead of a hero’s journey to victory, they depict a hero’s fall from grace, a tragedy that is harder to bring to life onscreen. Coupled with the fact that Lucas -- with significantly improved technology behind him this time around-- chose a different visual style, the first three episodes of the series often feel as if they are part of a different universe.
