This may insult quite a lot of people lol:

I liked Episodes 1-3 (With episode 3 being the best) and to me there better than episodes 4-6.

When watching the films in order from 1 through 6 (I'm not including the animated film) im rather disappointed when I finish episode 3 and go on to watch episode 4. For example the fight between Obi Wan & Anakin in episode 3 was epic, in episode 4 they fight again but its a bit crap in comparison. Its more like children playing with toy swords which is such a let down.

Also the later films don't make seance really: Anakin had many years of training under a Jedi Master and then more years under a Sith Lord as Darth Vader but then Luke comes along, has a crash course in a swamp and is able to put up a good fight and eventually defeat him (what the hell).

Does anyone else feel that the newer films were better than the originals?

Darth Vader was a cripple.

New Hope fight was an old man vs. a cripple.

That's really all there is to it.

Only Episode I and II. The story in ROTS felt rushed, and the only part worth watching was the last hour.

I did, however, like ROTJ. Even though I'm the biggest fan of the prequels, because I believe they're too similar to an episode of Star Trek, I did like ROTJ. I can't explain why. Maybe because it didn't have the milennium falcon flying around for half of the movie and Han making lame jokes about being a smuggler.

I enjoyed all of the episodes, some more than others. Episode II being among those I liked the most, primarily due to the unknown soldier aspect of the clone soldiers. While the fight(s) in A New Hope were horrible, they improved over the course of Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Especially the fight between Luke and Vader on the Death Star in the final one was, in my opinion, epic.

You have to remeber also, that they were made in different Generations. With Different tech too.

like said, different tech. What they used as light sabers back in the days were to delicate to swing to hard. And your saying luke got a crash course? pretty sure those movies were around first so anakin must have just been a slow learnig (its a joke)....but im sorry, there may not have been as much action in the original, but the story and origins of star wars is made there. Plus, you shouldn't watch them in the order of the story, but from when they were made. One more thing, don't be a kid anymore and tell me what you like more (another joke....dont hate me)

1-3 lacked substance & a driving plot. All they offer are special effects. The acting was plastic in all three prequels. There were no characters to grasp hold to & identify with like in the original trilogy. The only reason the prequels worked at all is that they already had a rich lore & history to draw from, being it is STAR WARS. Had the prequels come out first, the series would have stopped with The Phantom Menace. It was so weak & non-entertaining, they would have scrapped the rest due to poor reviews & sales. Seriously, if not for the established lore laid down by 4-6, 1-3 would have failed on their own.

People always say the phantom menace isn't entertaining, please explain. I don't understand.
