OK started listening to the audiobook and the opening battle above Coruscant goes on for about 45 minutes

This will be amazing. I thought no.

Don’t think I kept going after the never ending opening battle. But my loss. Everyone says the book is fantastic.

Watched The Phantom Menace and Attack Of The Clones again this week. I love how colorful these movies are, and how there are so many different alien worlds and creatures, robots and ships. There’s politics and war, lots of action and several fantastic actors, as well as a long list of standout scenes. The movies also led to the wonderful Clone Wars series.

It’s a shame the two movies are so flawed. These movies could have been true classics. The main premise is solid, but the story in both suffer from some poor ideas. Those that annoy me the most are those that seem made specifically for kids (Jar Jar, clumsy and lucky going hand in hand, the robot making scene in AOTC followed by the colosseum scene). The romance should have been better, and the story behind the creation of the clone army seems fair, but rushed. There’s also the virgin birth and the midi-chlorians in TPM, which I guess can be debated. The list of positives is still longer than the negatives.

I’m sure I’ve written a similar post before. The sad thing is that while the new movies have less obvious flaws, they also lack a lot of the inventiveness, scope and strengths of the prequels.
