How did we get to discussing the prequels again? Anyway…
takes deep drag of cigarette
The prequels? Yeah, I seen 'em.
Attack of the Clones isn’t as bad as everyone says. It has three great scenes: the Corusan chase in the beginning, the Kenobi-Fett fight and chase, and the bit with Christopher Lee and Sam Jackson and a million Jedis. There is no Disney-era movie that has three great scenes. The love scenes are awful but on DVD they’re arranged so you can skip those chapters, so if you’re watching them in 2018 you have nobody to blame but yourself. I always find it interesting that people regard this is the worst Star Wars film, primarily on the back of those ten minutes of love scenes, as if most movies don’t have ten minutes of rubbish.
Revenge of the Sith has some great stuff, namely General Grievous and the Mace Windu death scene, but the opening is too chaotic, the climax is too long, and the kid-killing stuff is no good, especially if you’re going to later release a million cartoons where Anakin is the hero. Also, given that we know what’s going to happen it’s a pretty slow march to get there. I would say this is the worst Star Wars film, depending on how I feel about Rogue One on a given day. This thing did get incredible reviews however, I remember that clearly.
