Empire Strikes Back

As fans of the Star Wars franchise the world over prepare to celebrate this year’s May the 4th, I found myself giving serious consideration to writing something for Geeks of Doom in order to commemorate the occasion. After racking my brain for several constantly interrupted hours, I drew nothing but blanks.

It’s difficult for me to get excited about anything Star Wars-related this days; I’ve written news stories about the continuing developments behind the upcoming Episode VII even though I have little interest in them, but that’s part of the reason why I’m on the writing staff of this website. The stories have to be reported even though I may not care much about them because one or more of our readers certainly will. But the staggering drop in allure regarding the dauntless heroes and dastardly villains who inhabit the expansive universe that sprang forth from George Lucas‘ euphoric imagination more than four decades ago in my view wasn’t something that happened overnight. It took many unpleasant, heartbreaking years.

However, I came not to talk about how much Star Wars has disappointed me over time. May 4th is meant to be a day of remembrance and celebration. With that in mind I will instead document in brief to the best of my abilities the role Lucas’ creation has played in inspiring me to embrace my own evolving sense of wonder and take control of my intellectual maturation.

Star Wars: Episode II -- Attack of the Clones

Geeks will discuss and debate for all time what’s wrong with, what should have been, and how it should have been done in regard to George Lucas’s Star Wars prequel trilogy, all while still generally agreeing that the trilogy was, for the most part, a disaster (critically, of course).

The folks over at Belated Media also have their views on how the prequels could have been the movies fans so desperately wanted them to be, and they’re putting their ideas out to the masses to see what everyone thinks. Not that anything can be done about it now, obviously, but hey…it’s fun to pretend.

There’s certainly some interesting tweaks to ponder, so be sure to continue on below to watch the video and be sure to share your thoughts in the comments!
