I always thought that Anakin on the poster looks very much like me on account of his eyes appearing to be brown. At least, as I looked back when the movie came out.

Edit: Incidentally I have found some pictures of myself from 2002 and *I* think it looks like me, or vice-versa, for sure. But maybe I'm biased.

What's with all the hate? Indeed. I cannot fathom how much venom is always spit at the second prequel.

Except for every scene where there's nobody on the screen but Anakin and Senator Wet Blanket, I love AOTC. Even if it's just Artoo and/or Threepio, as long as they're sharing the screen with another character, they're both tolerable. But every second of film where it's the two of them I find it painful almost unwatchable... good thing I have the FFWD button on the remote. Rolling Eyes IMO the whole fireside scene and the whole meadow pinic scene ought to have been deleted from the movie. I'm hoping both scenes will be magically absent from the Blu-Ray version of Episode II. Laughing

I love everything else in the movie. The arena scuffle that was the beginning of The War, the revelation of the cloning facility, the pursuit of Zam Wesell, the critical Senatorial proceedings, the story of Jango becoming the clone template, the return to Mos Espa, the introduction of the Lars' and their farm, the Death Star meetings, the investigation by gumshoe Kenobi, the assassination or Corde on the landing platform, the everything else I left out of my list... ALL of it is fantastic. The special effects were amazing, the CGI was gorgeously used to show us the plot unfold. The whole set up for the clone army being activated was fascinating. Finding out that Dooku was Qui-Gon's master was profoundly cool.

I can't complain too much about the film. It's the only one where you can see my city -just like in Lawrence of Arabia. That's the place where we, in our local Star Wars fan group, make our meetings. Well, more o less. In fact, the plaza it's only half plaza. The other half was just in the computer. But that's better than nothing.

I honestly think TPM has more issues than AotC, but that's just my opinion. I still love both films.

Senator Wet Blanket. LOL

Actually, and I hate to say this because I love Natalie Portman, but the movie shows much better when you skip most of the Padme-Anakin scenes -- particularly the love scenes. God, they're awful. It's been 9 years and I'm still trying to figure out exactly why Padme fell in love with Anakin in the first place. Seriously, it was not his charm, his way with words or his maturity. LOL

The rest of the movie is just like Wookie said. I just don't get the AOTC hate.

You know, sometimes love is blind... and in cases like this one, it's deaf, too.

Natalie said it herself on the DVD extra. It's because he was cute. Wink

For me, TPM "felt" more like it was in the same universe as the OT than AOTC does. I'm wondering if it's because AOTC is more reliant upon CG than physical effects and models, whereas TPM is more like the Special Editions of the OT insofar as that it used more physical models, costumes, and physical setpieces than the whole OT combined and then was supplemented with CG. Whereas AOTC was shot digitally and a lot of stuff was created purely digitally, e.g. Yoda, the clone troopers, Coruscant.

I think that's my primary knock against AOTC, besides what I say below:

AOTC would be a lot better film, IMO, if it excised most of the Anakin and Padme scenes. Especially the fireplace scene. It lacks any sort of subtlety to it that would make it more organic and believable. If there was simply sexual tension without any overt discussion of it beyond "I shouldn't have done that" after Padme kisses Anakin, it works a lot better. As it is in the film, it's as if Lucas is holding the audience's hand as though they won't just accept that a romance between Anakin and Padme is something that shouldn't be undertaken and consequently beats the audience over the head with this fact. The scene on the refugee frigate about attachment being forbidden should be enough, we don't need Anakin crying about how he wishes he could wish away his feelings.

Psh, I have lackeys to actually deliver the kouhuns. I'll be here at my computer when they arrive.

Seriously, no one's that cute. You'd have to wear earplugs. I can picture it now.

Padme and Anakin on balcony. Padme combing her hair.

Anakin: I'm so in love with you.

Padme: What? I can't hear you?
