Top five youtube videos supporting my disdain for the Star Wars prequels

by J. R. Wagner

After some laborious hunting around youtube, I've managed to find five videos that do a rather comprehensive job at describing why the Star Wars prequels are simply downright offensive to a fan of the original films.

This first video takes a newly released song and spins it into a beautifully written diatribe about the prequels.

Video #2 (sorry about the title) gets down to the nitty-gritty. Lots of specific examples of why the films are terrible.

Video three takes a different approach. It asks the question, what if episode one was good? (grammatically, it should be were good...but whose counting?)

Video four is a funny comedy bit done by a die hard original film fan about what he would do if he could travel back in time. Very funny! **content warning, language is rough in this one.

Finally we have a monolog tearing the second of the prequels -attack of the clones, to pieces.  Once you get over the monotone, emotionless voice of the narrator and listen for a minute, you may find his dry sense of humor somewhat funny.

If anyone else knows of some good prequel-bashing video, send me the link!

This video has nothing to do with prequel-bashing but it is still very funny and worth a look!

And finally, a bunch of Star Wars jokes from The Daily Show
