Problem is, on their own, 1 and 2 and 3 are great movies but will never be seen as such for one reason: they carry the baggage of the history and our rapturous reception of the original three movies and our expectations from those three passed on and magnified by memory onto the prequels. Lucas could have made 3 fantastic movies with rip-snorting dialogue and amazing acting and special effects and it still would not have been good enough. Why? Because it would always be in the shadow of the original 3 movies.
If we could find someone who had not heard of, seen or been exposed to StarWars AT ALL, and shown him/her the prequel movies, they would probably think these were great movies. But that's just wishful thinking.........
But as they stand individually, these movies work....
Just my 2c, but worth more than most....I'm kidding!
