IG-88 model of droids would have been cooler as the "battle droids" of the prequels

yes/no?

I think the prequel droids are amazing, but I wish they were made a little less silly/stupid.

But that is exactly why they aren't amazing. All they are there for is comedic relief. This thought from you doesnt make any sense.

The design is perfect.

Both in games and in Clone Wars they are less silly than in the PT. Especially in TPM, in combination with Jar Jar, it could easily have been a lot better. My least favorite part of that movie.

"I guess we were wrong. There was no danger at all"

pew pew pow pow boom kabloom!!!!

God attack of the clones sucks.

And then "corde" dead from the explosion. Looks like an awful barbie doll. Hair is perfectly put into place to make it look like it was blown up. Its like a cartoon version of someone who stuck their finger into an electrical socket.

Also, phantom menace sucks. Even a majority of Darth Maul's excitement is CGI (looks terrible)

If it wasn't star wars, nobody would give it the time of day. Its not fun. Its not adventurous and its an editing abortion.

WHy was there a space battle? Was that even explain or was i just bored and tuned out again? Everything good that happens is by accident with fucking anakin accidentally blowing up the trade federation main ship.

The only cool part of the movie is the Qui Gon/Obi Wan v Darth Maul stuff. And really the only cool part is Qui Gon kneeling in meditaiton for that brief moment.

Also, Qui Gon taken out by a bunt to the face and then stabbing by lightsaber? C'mon.

Also, maul couldnt sense Obi Wan was about to fly up into mid-air and get a lightsaber ? He couldn't cut him down immediately as he flew up in front of him?

Fuck Jar jar.

:)

I love star wars though.

A shame you still feel that way. I get a lot of joy out of rewatching the prequels every few years.

It kind of makes me think George Lucas is somewhat emotionally stunted considering the dialogue he comes up with. Especially any romantic connections.

I’ll finish them for sure. And I do like revenge of the sith. Just gotta make it through attack of the clones.

I know I'm in a huge minority, but I like AotC. Better than TPM, anyway.

I try find the good in the prequels and there’s a lot to love. AOTC though is just barren of any enjoyment for me.

I think for me, child Anakin and the Jar-Jar stuff really just took me out of it. And I'm not knocking the actor who played child Anakin, I just had a hard time connecting Darth Vader that far back to an innocent child. At least in the next two movies there was dissent and disagreement with teenage Anakin.

Yea but, again with the dialogue, he just sounds like an amped up teen who has never masturbated.

LAST TIME I SAW YOU IW AS 8 YEARS OLD AND I HAVEN'T STOPPED THINKIGN ABOUT YOU SENSE AND WHY HAVEN'T YOU THROWN YOURSELF AT ME WAHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Look, if these weren't star wars, most of us wouldnt give at least TPM or AotC a fair shake at all.

And Hayden plays it well in RoTS so I actually think Hayden as an actor is quite fine. George Lucas just has no business writing dialogue.

Yeah this is a good point. I think he was unfairly criticized, including by me, when in fact the writing was probably mostly at fault.

Pretty sure Jedi aren’t allowed masturbate

Any devious mind could steal their wipe up sock and clone them.


And is sperm not the essence of life? Life creates the force?

We need clarification on this. Call Filoni
