Sorry, but I am orthodox Star Trek. In my opinion, the first "Star Wars" movie was imaginative, but it was all down hill from that point. The last "Phantom Menace" installment lumbered along as if the script was written day by day as they were shooting the picture.
Now I know that the Star Trek movies would not have been made but for the financial success of Star Wars. But given the body of work that all of the Star Trek films and series represent, I must argue that it is a superior brand of story telling, with much more interesting characters.
Maggs swings, it's a drive deep to left! The Tigers are going to the World Series!!!

The "first" 3 were great. But the "last" was different. It was like the first 3 were Rocky films and the last was Gone With The Wind or another Chick flick and I think they lost their usual Star Wars fans when they put in all that romance and dialogue and took out the action.
