I'm the same way. I will say that Empire has a deeper meaning to me as it was one of the first movies I saw as a kid at the theatre on my own (with friends but without adult supervision), so it will always be special that way.

Basically you watch the films in this order
- IV: A New Hope
- V: The Empire Strikes Back
- II: Attack of the Clones
- III: Revenge of the Sith
- VI: Return of the Jedi
The blog post explains the reasons why quite well, including why to skip Episode I all together.
His reasoning works well, except I still like Episode I if not just to help people see how awesome the Emperor is!
If he was a wedding planner you just know nothing would go wrong (other then the obscure chance of someone intentionally trying to break up your wedding) as he planned everything so far in advance. [ Btw I used that analogy of a wedding planner because lately I've been watching Wedding Band and it rocks! ] :p
I also had no problem with Jar Jar (take him out and what will people whine about next?) or the pod races or basically anything in the movie.
What i do have a problem with is how some "fans" feel they have a right to tell Lucas how the story should have been... wtf? Has not the whole story come from his imagination? It's his story, he gets to tell it how he wants and you either like it or don't like it but you don't get to say that his vision is wrong, it's just not to your liking.
From that blog that Sath posted, I saw this :
Next time you want to introduce someone to Star Wars for the first time...
Is that even possible? Someone that hasn't seen Star Wars (other then young kids)?
I don't really care if J.J is making it or not, as long as the story is interesting. I will say though.. bring on the Star Wars lens flare!
