Star Wars 4-6 were decent popcorn flicks, enjoyable fantasy (*not* science fiction by any sane definition), as long as you switched your brain off - or saw them when you were too young to appreciate how bad the acting and dialogue were; how unimaginative the plot is; how stupid some of the situations were - AT-AT walkers, a moon full of teddy bears, teddy bears which beat a supposedly trained, equipped and sober army, etc etc. They looked cool; Solo, Vader, Bobba Fett were suitably badass in a shallow kind of way. Space laser fights, unrealistic but looked cool. Light-sabers, impractical but looked cool. They were enjoyable popcorn fodder, better than the sum of their parts.

Star Wars 1 and 2 were stupid, incoherent, had none of the memorable-if-shallow joy of the originals and rather than looking good for the available special effects, looked horribly fake. I presume Ep. 3 is the same. Their biggest flaw is that the people who were looking forward to seeing them weren't 10 year olds any more.
