The new Star Wars CG movie might be rubbish, but the original trilogy still rules!

Yesterday I reported that the new Star Wars: The Clone Wars film has been widely slated in the media, with a unanimous "thumbs down" from all the major film critics. No-one it seems, other than the producers, has anything positive to say about it. Oh dear!

At least the original trilogy of Star Wars films - Episodes IV, V and VI - is still considered to be one of the best film series ever. Phew!

It's always worth watching the three original films again even after all these years, and you can do that for free, in a rather unusual way, right here:

Watch the entire "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope" movie as an animated GIF

Watch the entire "Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back" movie as an animated GIF

Watch the entire "Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi" movie as an animated GIF

I guess you may possibly have already seen them because they have been around for a while now, but like the proper versions of the movies, they are certainly worth watching more than once - they're great fun and very clever, aren't they?

Here are some more great free Star Wars online goodies for you if you're interested:
