Repo pretty much hammered it. (He also owned my soul with that last post of his)
Years ago, as a kid, right when the special edition trilogy was first coming to theaters, I had never seen Star Wars at all. So, before taking me to see those, my dad showed me all of the originals. They rocked. Then I saw the SE trilogy, and loved that too. Years later, the new trilogy was introduced and I saw those as each of them came out. Technically I was never "behind". At one point as a kid, I was even a pretty hardcore SW enthusiast.
But now, as a 20 year old, I'm not. I watch the movies, go about my day, and don't really attempt to dissect them any further than what's explained on film. I mean, of course I've said "It would've been cooler if...
" a few times, but not as an entire topic of discussion, especially when you start waxing chronological shit on me. Then it's just non-sense, as Repo described.
Not really hating though.
