He's a douche. But Episode 1 was good. Aside from him.

Episode 1 was trash but it wasn't all his fault. It was a collective effort.

Here's what sucked. (I know we've had this discussion before but this gives others a chance to chime in.)

1. Everyone's acting. Liam Neeson was decent, Ewan McGregor was passable, though his dialogue just fell flat and the lame accent they gave him didn't help either. Natalie Portman was abysmal, when she was doing her Queen voice she sounded like some post op tranny. Jake Lloyd and the rest just also terrible. Even Samuel L. Jackson gave a crappy performance.

2. The dialogue, I touched on this above but man this movie was so poorly written. The lines that are supposed to be funny aren't. The lines that are supposed to make us excited don't. The dinner scene is pretty much the culmination of pure shit probably one of the worst scenes in cinematic history.

3. The aliens are terrible. Maybe they were trying to go for some organic feeling but every alien has some kind of horrible accent. The Asian sounding aliens sounded idiotic. Watto the French alien was adequate but really annoying. Sebulba was cool but barely in it. Boss Nass and the rest of the Gungans really bad. Additionally the robot things were just dumb. I mean stormtroopers looked badass, these little robot things were like tiny little pricks I wouldn't even bat an eyelash at.

4. The story was pretty much forgettable and useless. I mean the movie was basically supposed to show why Anakin was destined to use the force, which was pretty much the pod race. Everything else really had no point to it and was horribly boring. Heck even the pod race the best part of the movie is pretty boring and drags on for way too long.

5. Inconsistencies with the later films. I can't think of any off the top of my head but anything referred to in the original films is killed in the new movies. Also it seems like the technology in the past was a lot more advanced than the technology in the future. The Naboo starfighter and all the other fancy ships and droids you see in the movie look way more advanced than anything you see in the original trilogy.

That's all I can think of for now. I've seen this movie way too many times.

The entire movie, other than Jake Lloyd, was great. Peace

Really, the OT sucks just as much as Episode 1. It's strange that people look over the flaws of the OT and think it's charming of some such... but it's blasphemy in the PT. Pretty much everything you said could be said for the OT.

As for the technology. It was a prestine era. Everything was wonderful. Emperor Palpatine ravaged the galaxy and it shows. The rebels are forced to use scraps and buckets of bolts to take on the Emperial forces. It's really not all that uncommon to see a civilization brought down a few notches during a tyranical reign.

Star Wars is PG children's movie fluff with adult overtones. It does it all just fine. I can sit and watch any of those movies and have a great time. That's all I ask for and it gives me that.

Everything about all three of the prequels is terrible. End of story.
