    6 Dumb Aspects Of The Original Star Wars

    Cracked

    If you're a human being, you were probably as excited as we were about Star Wars: The Force Awakens -- or as we call it, Star Wars 4: George Lucas Was Doing His Dishes Thousands Of Miles Away. As fans, we demand that Disney give us the same fuzzy-feeling, space operatic awesomeness of the original trilogy, and less of the brain-numbing, toy-shilling, candy-colored fever dream that was the prequels. Give us art, not a lollipop that forces you to French-kiss Jar Jar Binks.

    The weird thing about this is that George Lucas' beloved OT was never meant to be seen as a great artistic achievement. Not until our collective nostalgic hive mind decided it had to be, anyway. In all of our fervor and excitement over Episode VII, we've forgotten that ...

I think Episode IV was added to the original title a couple of years after the movie came out. So I don't know, Star Wars s one of those series that succeeded because there was something in it for just about everyone. So, I don't see the goofy things Star Wars has done as a bad thing.

    Great article, man. Thanks for the share!

      Actually, I think Cracked these days is a sometimes satire site, but that's just me.
