    Itís shocking to see the amount of people raving on about the up and coming new Star Wars flick, with the last two being huge let downs, and the originals surpassing the classic status and into the camp/dated status.

    Iíve watched the trailer for ep III which makes it look very, very impressive, which is a typical George Lucas trick. Itís not going to be a thing like the trailer, the only difference between this new one and the last two is that it will be slightly darker. Itíll be the same over budgeted farce, with a boring political backbone and over exaggerated effects toped off with poor acting Please, stop watching and endorsing them. Yeah, they were great fun all those years ago, but not anymore

    Instead, look into Firefly. Donít be put of by its Joss Whedon links with Buffy if you donít like that sort of thing, because Firefly is something special. You can pick up the boxset for around £20 or under these days (though I paid £35 when it first came out ). You donít have to see the series before seeing the film (Serenity) but youíd benefit more if you did. Itís unbelievably great. Only 14 episodes passed before it fell under Foxís usual axe of uncertainty, but if the films successful then thereís another two movies planned

    Just d/l the pilot (Also named Serenity) if youíre still not sure, itís two episodes long, so itís about the length of a film.

    Donít settle for less again and see Star Wars, for God's sake, have standards

    Before you start flaming this thread, just give it a chance, if you already have and didnít like it, fair enough

    heard people raving about firefly for months so i finally decided to download the whole series. Its a fantastic program, very funny at points and always seems to have an excellent twist at the end of every episode.

    cant wait to see the new film and i hope they do make more.

    Why do you think Episode I & II weren't that good? You compared them with the older episodes (IV,V,VI)? I thought they were pretty good

    Everything was to a lower standard, acting, plot ect. The only thing that stood out, like with all Lucas flicks is the CGI Iím not a fan of the originals either

    I haven't checked out Firefly yet but anything has to be better than the dire first two prequel Star Wars movies though.

    But...

    and the originals surpassing the classic status and into the camp/dated status.
    Really? I still love the original three, I would have never thought that people would have considered them camp. Maybe dated but camp..?

    Torrentspy have got the complete series at 3.53 GB, plenty of seeds too

    they've always seemed pretty camp, to some anyway, and if you watch through them with camp in mind then it's gonna stick (ooo errr)

    Edit: Region 2 DVD set @ £15.00 Inc p&p

    I remember when FireFly was being anounced on FOX (almos the same way ABC did for LOST),
    I like Csi-Fi, so I was very exited about it, I was there for the first episode and...
    wow!, -what a Load of crap-, I thought.
    But I know some people might like it, so.

    Better than Star Wars?

    You're on crack.

    The reason there is this thing for Star Wars is because it's universe is highly original and the new movie in particular will chronicle the fall of Anakin and subsequent turn into Vader, the rise of the empire and Palpatine, the advent of Strorm Troopers from Clone Troopers, the self-exile of Yoda, the birth of Luke and Leia and their split, and the Jedi Purge.

    Firefly can kiss an ass in comparison. Sorry.

    Well, It seemed humm... ridiculus (did I wrote it wrong?).
    Just like a low budget Sci-Fi movie.
    Just like 'Andromeda'.

    Some times when there is nothing else to do, I watch Andromeda,
    and to this day, I still think its horrendus.
