Top 5 Things The Prequels Did Right


  1. I'd add Palpatine. Ian McDermitt and Ewan McGregor carried those films. It's was too heavy a load to carry even for them but they made them bearable.

  2. 1) Darth Maul was an intriguing character.

  3. What a stupid video. You so wrong in the claim that most people hate the prequels. There are far more people who actually likes the prequels (but of course have things they dislike also). And there are ALOT more things than 5 that George did right.

    1. I only find the first one seriously flawed and most of those flaws total up to only a few minutes. Anikan was a bit too cutsey but it was a reasonable setup for the rest of the stories and set the stage as it were. Lucas needed someone whose job it was to tell him when he was being an idiot, but he did to a lot of great work.

      It is worth remembering that unlike many people in Hollywood his primary motivation has been to get his vision on the screen as he saw it in his head. This drive was so strong it is the reason the prequels were delays so long. He spent over 20 years getting OTHER PEOPLE to pay for the advancements in special effects so that he could do exactly everything he ever imagined....

      Some of it should have stayed on the cutting room floor.

  4. Jar Jar Binks was the biggest mistake
