Jar-Jar is annoying, but it wouldn't be quite the same without him. Every franchise needs someone you love to hate... Wink

Narnia (books!) doesn't have any characters I hate. Not even characters I dislike. Wink

That may be partly because Narnia is less about the characters and more about the world. In my opinion, anyway.

Ehh, I don't know about that. There are some characters that I love to death: Reep, Puddleglum, Scrubb and Pole, the Pevensies, Aslan etc. The characters are simple, but they're good. The characters are what drives The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (again, book!).

There you go. You haven't even read the book so what do you know?! Wink

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is a really special book. Try your hardest to keep the movie out of your mind as you read.

Actually, I don't find the memory to be as painful as Reep and Caedus. But I have always been able to easily mentally separate movies from their source books. Smile

Honestly, my Fandom grew into it's full Force in the year leading up to RotS. RotS was my first midnight show. I have nothing but nostalgia for the prequels. Sure they are flawed, but their my trilogy. Hope that doesn't get me banned Shocked

I admit, the prequels have their cringe-worthy moments, but a lot of the general plot ideas were good.

Invasion and blockade? practical
CLone War start? logical
ROTS war conclusion? extremely well laid out.

Dialogue? Ok, that was weak.

Still, pretty good.

The flirty/love dialog was like sand. Course, rough and irritating. And it was everywhere.

Other parts had decent dialog. Particularly for a SciFi film.

I once got to say "I will make it legal" in a conversation. One of the best days of my life.

One of the things I don't get is that one complaint people had with the PT was that it was too political. And yet Rebels fighting a government is not political at all...
