    Is symmetry the same thing as reusing stuff because you're too lazy to write new stuff?

    There are a few good things about the prequels

    People who just automatically dismiss them all as complete shit are just being lazy

    Darth Maul is the coolest motherfucker in the hizood. When he was pacing back and forth and glaring, just waiting for those power fields to go down so he could resume the fight...badass.

    I'm a General Grievous guy, even though in practice he was a huge pussy

    That character design was fantastic

    I always hated the goddamn Darth Maul scene. It's been pointed out a million times, but why didn't he just do the superfast "force run" shit they did in the beginning of the movie?!

    Instead he does his slow ass white man jog and gets stopped by the barrier.

    The whole Darth Maul fight didn't age well

    I think episode 1 is the only truly BAD one. 2 and 3, while obviously VERY flawed, have enough good moments to qualify as "all right".

    1 really is awful. I can stomach watching 2, and 3 is definitely better. :jj: That's as good as I can summon for them.
