Please don't turn this into a basher/gusher topic like the last one. I just want to discuss the phenomenon of why so many people are claiming AOTC is a boring film. First of all, there seems to be a mixed message. Some are saying AOTC is boring because it'll action, no plot. Others are saying it's boring because there isn't enough action. Alan Granted people have different tastes, but just calling a film boring is no argument, at least when it comes to quality. Citizen Kang is a boring film. Big Night is a boring film. TPM is boring in some parts. I've even heard some people call the classic trilogy boring. When I saw the Special Editions, I heard many people say that the Tatooine scenes in ANH were dull. People were even bored by ESB. So that shows if people want to be bored by a film, they will. AOTC has plenty of action and spectacle, but some people couldn't get involved in the characters or plot, which is why they call it boring. Not really Lucas' fault, IMO.
