4.5 out of 5 stars

Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope 
What I thought I was walking into was just another cheesy space journey that was like all the others, but what I got was a masterpiece. Coming into the opening shot to the end shot I enjoyed every minute of this movie. When George Lucas came in with the opening shot of the star destroyer attacking the rebel vessel it created a sense of awe and wonder of what is going on. Also seeing Darth Vader pop on to the scene force choking people shows that he is a figure not to be messed with. This entire movie was completely amazing, but what really was outstanding was the special effects looked much more real than I could've possibly imagine. The only thing that disappointed me was the saber fight which seemed kind of sluggish at the time and slow, but even if this is the first movie I still think the fight could have been better. The acting was phenomenal especially Han Solo which made me think that is how Harrison Ford acts in real life. Everything else about this movie was absolutely brilliant! See this movie when you get a chance.

3.5 out of 5 stars

Star Wars Episode III
This Movie could have been so good, but just had some flaws. The flaws of this movie was the over-reliance of CGI the forced romance between Anakin and Padmea, Anakin having long hair which to me personally should have stayed short. The acting was still only sub-par and could have been done much better. Also the visuals were great looking, but still constantly making everything look fake. The movie to me had some redeeming parts like Order 66 Anakin and Obi-wans saber fight. All in all the movie could have been great, but the wonky dialogue and CGI still make the movie bad, see this movie if you want to understand the story line.

Star Wars Episode II 
Yet another disappointment. After the fall of the highly anticipated episode I episode II released and became another tragic failure of almost the same mistakes as the first one, with the goofy dialogue and the CGI reliance to make the movie look "beautiful" in some way, but still looks fake! The movie is still showing the saber battles as more kung fu than anything else which is very cool to watch by the way, but just looks as if the saber does not even exist in that world. The acting was below par and yet I still find it hard to see anyone attempting to fix this problem. The forced romance between Padme and Anakin was absolutely horrendous; making the two actors look like two figurines smashing up against each other. There was one redeeming part of the movie, which was the last saber fight between Dooku, Anakin, Obi-wan, and Yoda. That was just great to see Yoda fight someone with a saber, but unfortunately it was majority CGI. The only recommendation I have for this  movie is only go see it for back story on the original trilogy.

Star Wars Episode I
Such a disappointment. This movie was hype up for so long and looked absolutely beautiful, but just happened to be a very big disappointment whether it be the character the ungodly amounts of CGI or just the goofy dialogue in general. The CGI made the movie look really bright and different than the original trilogy, but made the movie look all around fake and like a cartoon. The acting in this movie was just eh; not bad not great, but just okay and the dialogue just seemed forced and painful to even talk. The lightsaber battles which could be argued the best parts of the movies; were also not that fun to watch. Here is the problem with the battles is that they changed the fighting from what we consider normal sword battles like knights to more kung fu like, which is cool, but mixed with the CGI made the fights look non-realistic and fake altogether. The only savior of this movie was Darth Maul, it was amazing to see him and his fighting style with a two bladed saber! All in all the downfall of this movie could have been either the dialogue, the too much CGI, or even just Jar Jar Binks. Whether you see this movie so you can understand the back story of the jedi, just know that it is not that well done.
