Phantom Menace is at least some what original, Force Awakens is an inferior remake Why watch Force Awakens when I can watch A New Hope instead?

I’m fine watching either one but this film has better moments and more interesting failures

Epic lightsaber duels and nostalgia factor.

In my opinion, "The Force Awakens" was, as George approximates it, a "nostalgic" movie that, imo, for the first time since the prequels, regressed the franchise. "The Phantom Menace," (and KOTOR) pushed the needle forward, rethinking what Star Wars could be, adding many iconic elements to the lore.

The other two sequel movies ruined Force Awakens for me, and at least with Phantom Menace I fall asleep every time I watch it, so I get to see about the first half, which is nice.

The way George made his films feel like a 1930s Shakespearean serial is astounding, and Phantom Menace is both fun and thought provoking in its narrative. Now this is Star Wars!

The prequels are the Star Wars films I grew up with. While The Force Awakens is probably an objectively better film, how the Sequel Trilogy turned out as a whole ruins the films individually for me. Phantom Menace is just pure nostalgia for me. Plus pod racing and that final light saber duel!

The prequels are amateurishly made.

Even though its a rehash of ANH its still more entertaining to watch than the phantom menace.

Despite a weak finish in its respective trilogy it was a very promising start that has alotta enjoyable moments vs moments or characters I dread rewatching.

The characters in this for more fleshed out and are given their own identity, voice, and goal. Not all character share the same goal even Rey and Finn as they are together but clearly want different things for themselves. Finn's arc in this film alone is great especially. Acting is far better too.

Do you prefer the first half (seasons 1-5) or the second half (seasons 6-10) of Smallville?

Note that me saying seasons 1-5 doesn't mean it has more stuff that I liked, because I do prefer more stuff in later seasons, but I think these seasons were cleaner story wise. I feel like the second half was more messy.

I suppose I don’t “need” more of this world, but I’m interested to see more of how this new Matrix works.

I don’t like that The Matrix got any sequels.

Mister Wachowski is a no talent man, just like his brother.

Loved it but it wasn’t a set-up more than a coda where Trinity and Neo get what they deserve as a parallel to Lana’s life. A creator with a new outlook reflecting on material and a legacy made when they were almost literally a different person. Lana‘s now free to change The Matrix, as in the movie.

Honestly, The Matrix should’ve just been one movie, only cuz it was only one movie that worked, and that’s the first one. It was lightning in a bottle that caught waves and can’t be replicated by the multiple sequels. Plus Keanu’s doing so much better in his newer movies, especially in John Wick.
