I think that Star Wars will be the only franchise in film history that people will actually CELEBRATE being remade, when it inevitably happens in 15+ years time and after Lucas has become one big neck.

I can see what he was trying to convey over the course of the prequels. The machiavellian machinations of Palpatine and the fall of Anakin would have made for very gripping tales, had the script and screenplay been written by someone else…..and then given to people who can act.

How the f**k did Hayden Christensen get through an audition? Did all the competition die in a fire or something?

The interesting thing to note is that Christensen wanted to include some improv, and Lucas refused. Say, it's not like the improv was part of what made the originals so good, right? Wait, it is.

DAMMIT LUCAS!!! Is it really that hard for you to use the words "child" or "children"? I swear people, George Lucas used to be a great filmmaker, but then he ended up going down the same route as Frank Miller did as comics writer/artist.

When it came to the acting, Ewen McGregor was the best throughout it all. Everyone else, with the exception of Palpatine, were a bit "nehhhhhhhhh".....

Oh, Palpatine is an awesome villain. I can imitate his voice.

And Ewan McGregor is my most favorite actor in the Star Wars films.

I'll agree on both counts. Palpatine is a great villain, and Ewan McGregor's Obi Wan Kenobi was the one character throughout the prequels that I know I genuinely liked...and R2-D2...and Mace Windu...and Qui-Gon Ji- ok, so there were a few characters that were well portrayed...but that still doesn't excuse the midichlorian bulls**t.

Well, I am not an expert on the making of movies or whatever, but people don't seem all that into the prequals, it seems. I can't say I know the problem people have with episode 1. I have heard people say that was the worst episode, but I don't understand why. I have always liked them. Maybe it's the graphics and animation. I am in an animation class because it was one of my biggest interests.

here's my summary of the prequels: Phantom Menace sucked, Attack of the Clones was an improvement but OK at best, and Revenge of the Sith is admittedly pretty damn decent.

That is all.

You have a good point about H. Christensen. Bow Ring. But I think Ewan McGregor did a good job with Kenobi, don't you?

This deserves an update. Now that it has been sold to Disney…
