I think its a fair leap that the light saber battles in the OT were less flashy because Vader was so much better than his opponents in the first two and his heart wasn't in it in the last one. I'm mean its not remotely true....it was the limitations of the time but you could justify it that way to your kids or something and they'd buy it.

you know, while it has its strengths and is occasionally very good, I generally think Rebels is just ok.

Rebels is fun. It's nothing life changing. But it's fun.

Obi-Wan vs Anakin from Revenge of the Sith is a really good battle.

Yeah, that one's good too. Not as good as the one in TPM, though, I'd say. But yeah.

I think that's the worst. Of all of them. Over rehearsed.

The Obi Wan/Anakin one is also terrible. especially when they hit the lava bullshit. The beginning of the fight is fine though.

I kind of like the neo-noir feel that Coruscant at night has in Attack of the Clones. William Gibson should have designed and directed it, but still. I dig it.
