There was a time that three Star Wars movies were released, earned billions, and changed the world. That time was 1999-2005. With Power to the Prequels, Michael O’Connor’s here to show you just how amazing these films are.
Power to the Prequels is an ongoing column that critiques and analyzes the Star Wars prequels, and demonstrates their worth both as individual films and also as components of a larger saga. The goal is neither to blindly praise these films nor condemn them but rather to specifically and respectfully consider the artistic decisions made by director George Lucas and draw conclusions that may differ from the mainstream consensus.
