I’ve just been introduced to this subgenre of the Star Wars movies, putting scenes from the original movies with flashbacks to the prequels with incredibly dramatic music.
I’m not much a fan of Star Wars (Too black and white morality), but rewatching the first episode I can realise what good writing the originals had, especially the very first episode. It established that this was a story set in a universe which had long existed, and this was only a small portion of it1.
It’s a shame the prequels never became as great as the originals, except in memes and fight choreography.
- I may write a post on it in the future, but it will include the KOTOR games. ↩
