Heartening Thread Of The Week

There’s a thread on TFN’s prequel board called TPM Is Now My 2nd Favorite Movie where a fan finds appreciation for Eppy I. Better than last or not at all, right?

    Great thread.

    After burning a couple of hours over at the JCF today, I must say it’s a marked improvement from five or six years ago. And it’s practically a love fest compared to the summer of ’99.

    I have only seen a couple of bashers still hanging on, singing the same song.

    The Best Scenes in ROTS thread was annoying. After pages of great insight and creative suggestions, a troll comes on and nearly derails the entire thing. It was only one troll, but before long, people are having to devote posts to defending Ewoks in ROTJ and the like. As if that has something to do with Best Scenes in ROTS.

    It seems the thing with haters now is just the sheer, relentless repetition. Everyone else is offering up great observations that I’ve never thought of before, and then someone comes on and starts complaining about muppets in ROTJ. Like no one has ever said it before.

    Sometimes they hook me into some kind of actual negative emotion, but usually these days its just rank annoyance. They’re wasting my time and theirs. Complaints noted. For over a decade now. Let’s move on.

    Muppets in ROTJ? Is that another Ewok-related bitching? Because as far as I know, the only muppet in ROTJ was Yoda. Well, and maybe Jabba, though I think Jabba was more animatronic. The Ewoks were all played by very small humans in furry suits.

    Good to know TheForce.net isn’t as much of a cesspool as it used to be. I guess some of the bashers just finally got bored and moved on, or else went to other message boards. The persistence of the ones who remain is truly astonishing, and not in a good way. Indeed, it’s been over a decade. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I don’t spend nearly as much time on the prequels as the haters do, and I LIKE the prequels.

    I’ve always loved TFN. I’ve actually heard them be accused of being Lucasian sycophants in other forums. I think it was the JCF that was the problem.

    “I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I don’t spend nearly as much time on the prequels as the haters do, and I LIKE the prequels.”

    Exactly! Where the hell do these people get all that time? Do they not have jobs or family/social obligations of any kind?
