Or over the span of a few nights do all six movies in the following order: 4, 5, 1, 2, 3, 6.

You're book-ending the prequels with the best movie and the positive conclusion.

Then go see Episode 7!

I think, prior to my older comments, if any, that Attack of the Clones was actually quite a good movie. I mean, sure, there was the saddening portrayal of Anakin by Hayden Christiansen, but those clones were pretty kriffing epic.

^ There's a difference between liking a movie and respecting it. I have some serious gripes with the story-telling in the TPM and especially AotC, but I always enjoy watching them. On the other hand, there are lots of movies that I respect as well executed films, but will never like.

Surprisingly, for probably one of the first times ever, I mildly enjoyed watching AotC last night. I simply do not understand my original comment that the film was dull. Because this time around, after having just watched TPM the night before, I thought it was leaps and bounds more exciting than its predecessor.

TPM was a snooze fest. It was boring, it was wooden, it was campy, it was just plain bad. AotC at least had action and excitement and a plot that moved forward. The dialogue from Anakin and Padme hurt, oh, how it hurt. But I can watch that way more easily than I can now watch Jar Jar. And the acting was still wooden, but at least the story was fun and kept moving.

I honestly did surprise myself with a positive viewing. AotC has aged way better than TPM. Simply, perhaps, because it is three years younger. But who knows. According to my posts over the years, my opinion changes with the wind. Smile

HISHE always gets it right:

That first scene... is so true. Laughing
