The prequels were considered huge successes when they first came out too. Just some food for thought.

Not true, The Phantom Menace has a 51 on metacritic and a 55% on rottentomatoes.

Well I liked the prequels, aside from AotC.

They were far from considered huge successes. Some fans raved about it when it came out, that's true, but that could be a consequence of the hype of seeing another Star Wars movie after all those years. But a lot of fans bashed that movie back then. Reviews were very lackluster. This is a totally different case, as reviewers and fans alike are raving about it, and it's rare to see a lot of negativity (as opossed to TPM) among fandom. I didn't see it yet, but I'm on a lot of film forums and I've only see a lot of praise. 

EDIT: By the way, I've enjoyed Episode III a lot. More than RotJ, so I'm not actually a prequel hater.

Well son of a bitch. Just saw that spoiler. Oh well...I'm sure it will still be excellent. Waiting until probably next weekend to see it though.



Money can't buy happiness. Just video games, which make me happy.

I liked this movie a ton! Next to episode 2, it's my favorite. Yeah, I said it... I love episode 2.



Ask stefl1504 for a sig, even if you don't need one.

I thought Revenge of the Sith was the best of the prequels. I agree about Attack of the Clones being the worse though. Still the combination of Jake Lloyd and Jar Jar really hurt the watchability of The Phantom Menace...amount other things. Darth Maul was cool though.





I wont get to see it until next week probably, not a bad thing as I really wasn't looking forward to dealing with the madness that is a midnight/ weekend premier of a Star Wars movie. Did that for all 3 prequels, and what a crap sundae of a movie-going experience it was... and that was just the films!

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.
