    While Portman is clearly a babeasaurus rex, and possibly at her peak babeness in the PT...when you see her in Leon, Black Swan or Jackie....and wonder how she was handled in those PT films...dont make sense

    I love the freshness of the prequels. The usual bad blockbuster is bad because we've seen it before--it's generic, bland, etc. etc. But the prequels, even though they largely fail, are like nothing we've seen before. Not even like Star Wars, for better or worse. Visually, conceptually, plot-wise, it's all so fresh. And that keeps me coming back to them, even though I see their problems.

    It’s really interesting how an actor like McGregor excelled in the PT where Portman and Jackson came off as wooden. I honestly don’t have an answer.

    TPM I loved Qui-Gonn....a Jedi through and through. What I imagine Jedis were like in the Old Republic....

    AOTC I loved the battle scenes....my sons are huge Clone Trooper fans so this movie had a lot to offer

    ROTS of course the final battle between Obi-Wan and Anakin.....

    I like that its different from the original trilogy, and we get to see more of the the Star Wars universe. The prequel broaden the Star Wars mythology just like the sequel trilogy will and hopefully RJ's new trilogy will as well.

    My favorite aspect of the PT is that once it was done it made the core story of Star Wars be the story of the rise, fall and redemption of Anakin Skywalker. To me it made his redemption in the OT more meaningful.

    Not sure if this is still the core story of Star Wars anymore now that we have the ST. Seems to not be the case but I suppose we will have to wait and see once we have Ep. 9
