Star Wars Prequels - Do you think they're THAT bad?

Full disclosure - up until a couple years ago I had never watched a Star Wars movie. Then I finally watched the original trilogy. I liked A New Hope and Return of the Jedi, and loved The Empire Strikes Back.

I heard through the grapevine of movie discussion boards / forums for the longest time that the prequels were terrible and to skip them. Nevertheless, about a year after watching the original trilogy I checked out the prequels over the course of a few months. Episodes I and II were average movies (not terrible by any means for me), and I actually thought Episode III was really well done and gave good backstory, build-up, along with enticing action. I personally…

  • Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
  • Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones
  • Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
