Which Star Wars trilogy is better, episodes 4-6 (starting with A New Hope) or the newer episodes 1-3?
I think the new trilogy is a lot better than the old ones, though this is a much debated subject.
The newer trilogy is highlighted by first class graphics, which are rather outdated in the old trilogy, which seems to detract from the enjoyability of the first trilogy.
The newer trilogy also holds an A-Class cast, which seems more suited to their possitions than the old trilogy had. Natalie Portman acts more like a princess heroine than Carrie Fisher did.
The newer trilogy also seems to hold a more emotional value than the first trilogy did, and also holds more dramatic tension than the first series did, as is highlighted by the superb pod-race in Episode I.
There are more interesting characters in the newer series such as Jar-Jar binks and the gun-guns which, I think, adds a lot more character to the movies.
Please tell me your views!
