      It's a solid 7/10 pretty good but flawed film. Best prequel and better than all the sequels.

      They were bad, but they were soulful. Everything is such a soulless cash grab now I get nostalgic for the prequels. It used to be a big deal when you saw a new Star Wars was coming out now its a corporate strategy to release a new Star Wars thing every quarter. I miss big George.

      The prequels are clunky but they have charm

      Phantom Menace is still a fun movie to me all these years later, frick it feels weird knowing that it’s going to be a quarter century old this May.

      Watch the Plinkett reviews, he shows that the PT is absolute garbage and not a single good thing can be said about them.

          The sabers look so much better when they don't cast that sickly light on the actor's faces. Maybe they thought it was 'more realistic' or something, but TFA onwards the style actually gives me a headache.

      >Best prequel
      Wrong. It's a lazily written story where the protagonist sits or stands around for the majority of his screen time, and doesn't leave the main planet for the first two thirds of the film. The entire structure of the script is Coruscant > place > Coruscant > place2 > Coruscant > place > Coruscant > place2. It lacks the adventure drive that defines every other Star Wars film. The saving grace of the film is the action scenes, most of which have a flimsy justification within the plot.

        People shouldn't sit

        They should RUN

        Run all the time. At each other. Run to an objective. Always stress. Flashy editing. 3 second cuts.
        Shaky cam. "Naturalistic" acting. Audience jokes. Meta jokes. Deflating humor every time there's a serious moment. Can't get bored! Can't trust the audience.
        Need a nerdy character to explain stuff, then needs heroes to dismiss the science guy! Needs sequel hooks. Needs lots of characters!! Needs romance subplots with
        Lots of
        Characters

        Needs recurring big bads that are never defeated. Needs deus ex machina. Needs content!
        Whatever you do don't sit and have a 2'minute conversation.

              It's really obviously a poor development from the previous two films when you realize the entire movie is just about other characters going off while Anakin stays put. There's no precedent for it in the rest of Star Wars. It's a total wet fart for the development of the Darth Vader character, he's literally just waiting around for the plot to develop.

                What plot to develop? What are you talking about?
                The story is *about* the machinations at coruscant, about political overreach, sectarian conflict, forbidden love, hard decisions, where anakin stands in all this, etc.

                Its about him. The war is a literal sideshow, which is why George lucas correctly decide to skip the entirety of the war, showing only the beginning and end in his movies.

      But that's wrong. Episode 1 is the best one. While episode one has a lot of flaws, it has a lot of passion and much more interesting world building than the rest.

    I personally loved the idea of a separatist civil war where they are legitimately attacking back against core worlds that flex their political muscle to oppress them while elevating themselves under the guise of representation. a contrast between political power and military power. the best part was that the entire civil war was just being orchestrated by a member of the core worlds in the republic to gain emergency powers.
    The symbolism of a war fought between literal machines and genetic clones of a super soldier was brilliant. the people who actually fight being soulless faceless tools of war was a very subversive presentation, they are in a literal sense dehumanized rather than lionized as heroes or given some kind of personal attachment like any other war film would have done.
    The chosen one who is scorned because he still retains his ability to feel attachments having no other outlet than the evil lord of the sith that is literally orchestrating the civil war he is a general of is such an amazing concept. he cant confide in his teacher or the jedi masters because they were all raised to forego emotional attachment from infancy, so he has to tell his insecurities to the person who would twist them and hold them over his head to ruin his life. The chosen one of the jedi prophecy driven into the hands of the sith and then manipulated into destroying the jedi order, amazing.

    Its just a shame that all 3 movies were boring dogshit with terrible acting and dialogue.
