I actually think George Lucas would have done better leaving the first trilogy alone or making the "second" trilogy in the same style the old one had. IMO, the new trilogy got much more money than it deserved; it was like trying to turn a comedy into drama, look at how they changed Yoda for example. Sure, there are some good memorable moments in the new trilogy, but IMO, it could have been better.

I voted old trilogy, but I haven't seen the last installment of the new trilogy yet. Except for some screenshots with butchered Chinese -> English subtitles. It was hilarious, though.
I guess I wasn't all that fond of the high romance factor in the Episode II. And the effects although very beautiful didn't seem to fit all that well. Maybe because I was used to the older movies. I wonder about Episode III... is it really that bad? Some critics really tore into it.

Obviously the old one is better. In fact the old one that wasn't touched up by Lucas is the actual best one. Lucas can't make a decent movie unless it's unfinished and not to his satisfaction. Once he gets working to make it "better", he screws it up.
Ep 3 wasn't too bad, but not great. It was a bit over the top on special effects and action sacrificing dialogue and even believability of people's behavior.

I don't get why people like Episode III if they don't like the first two. I mean, it's exactly the same: excessive use of special effects (which really doesn't make them special anymore), clumsy dialogue, lack of any believable plot, and terrible acting. If you hated the first two, then you should hate the third.
