  1. Clone Wars somewhat redeems the prequels. The films are still very clunky and don't stand very well on their own but Clone Wars gives the films a little bit more dimension. Also with a lot of time passed between now and their releases it makes the outrage seem silly. As if Star Wars had excellent writing in the first place. It was always corny and clunky. The original trilogy came out at a time where those things were overlooked pretty easily as the overall quality standard of films was generally quite low in comparison to today. Nostalgia goggles twist the perception of the original trilogy films into something better it is not. Star Wars is a homage to old adventure serials that were quite bad and I adopted that kind of mindset and enjoy the moment. Even Rise of the Skywalker has some charm, harder to swallow but entertaining in a different way.
