Episode 1 was great imo, it would of been a classic if they shot Jar Jar in the face, fuck Anakin's pod racing, keep Padme on some other planet, and make it a 2 hours long Darth Maul, Qui-Gon, and Obi Wan fight. What I think really killed it for me in Episode 2 & 3 was the lack of Ray Park and Liam Neeson. Episode 1 has the greatest fight scenes of all 6 movies, I don't care what you old trilogy fans say. Episode 1 had the best fight scenes because it had a combination of great sword fighters(Ewan McGregor, Liam Neeson, and Ray Park) Liam Neeson has experience in sword fighting, Ray Park is a master martial artist and Ewan is a learning Sword fighter which is great cause it fits well his character. The Episode 1 fight still doesn't cease to impress me. But when we move on to episode 2 and 3 the use of CGI just ruined the lightsaber battles. "HOLY FUCKING SHIT DID U SEE YODA FIGHT OFMG OMFG OMFG" "Yeah.. but... We don't even see what the fuck is going on" Watch the Yoda fights in Slow motion, you'll see how poorly done those fights are.
And Episode 3 fights... don't even get me started. No originality in Grevious and Obi, just Grevious spinning lightsabers around. Sidious and Yoda... You had to be on major fucking LCD or some shit to know what the fuck was happening. And Anakin VS Obi fight, that was major shit, I don't care if it broke some record of it's length, they shouldn't be proud of that record cause the fight should of been fucking shorter, cause it looked like a bunch of 5 year old kids fighting, not to forget that all of that horrible sword play was camouflaged by the fucking lava jizzing all over the place and machines falling down from the sky.
SITMOS is great, one of my favorite podcasts.
