You know those tests where you look at the smeared ink and what you see in the picture tells something about you. I think AotC is somewhat the same. The people that hated it were almost predictable as were their reasons and the same with the people that loved it. It really comes down to what you brought into the theater at your first viewing. So where some see a slow paced movie with a great fx and a crappy romance others see an action packed adventure with great fx and a well portrayed young Anakin Skywalker. How can it be so diverse? Well in an inkblot test one person can see something beautiful and another see something horrible. Your focus determines your reality.
