Re: Lol...if i didnīt know the critics and GAīs score for this movie...
Besides Jar Jar's overtly slapstick moments and Jake Lloyds annoying moments, The Phantom Menace is a good film.
Attack of the Clones is another matter. The main story is a love story which Lucas admits he couldn't write, but the beginning of Anakin's descent was handled well (slaughtering the Tusken Raiders).
Revenge of the Sith was good in general. The opening half hour captured some of the greatness of the original.
It's a very, very vocal minority that try to make out the prequels are the worst thing to ever happen to cinema.
It's just the prequels were telling a very different story to the originals. Rather than a story of violent revolution, it was legitimate authority becoming dictatorship, and people didn't like that.
