So I was a guest on Declan Finn’s weekly radio show last night, listen to the two-hour show here, when the subject of Star Wars came up.
I loved the first three movies that were released, 4-6 if you count them in linear time in the Star Wars universe. A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi were all great films. Then came the prequels and an incomprehensible level of suck.
