Jedi. The story takes place in space, and the rebels... ok, we all know the story by now don't we? It's what people enjoy, the good vs the bad. Heroes vs Villains. The good side and the dark side. What is there not to like? I'm not going to mess around here – this is Star Wars. The way you loved it when watching it as a little kid, and the way it will be always be remembered.
There are so many good moments in Star Wars that I would run out of space real fast if I told you them all. Considering that George Lucas didn't even have a full detailed plan on how to link all the movies together, he's done a terrific job of linking the movies together into a giant saga. And with a brand new trilogy of films and spin-offs way on it’s way, Star Wars is as strong as ever. Long live Star Wars!
My One Big Highlight
A great different sequence is the pod-racing sequence from Episode I. This is most likely the most realistic, fastest, deadliest futuristic race at the time, (even through we had seen high speed futuristic racing in some films and video games) that’s before he consider the fragile nature of the pods themselves. It was certainly a technical masterpiece, and still holds up extremely well today. It's one of my first memories of Star Wars, and remains one of the my favourite scenes from the saga.
Elephant In the Room
And now the inevitable mentioning of the pre-sequel trilogy. Many people think that the prequels are terrible compared to the original trilogy, a view I disagree with. Granted, the original trilogy (and the Force Awakens) are superior in almost every way, but the pre-sequel trilogy do have a lot of good moments and do provide fun for the most part.
