    The best sequence for action and speed is the podrace in TPM. it's fast, cool and different. and it was nice to see a human do it. the sound design is superior and imaginable and the podracers all have their look and feel to them according to the driver. I love the part when they enter the cave and seeing the tusken raiders again on the desert.

    The crashing of the pods was realistic and phenomenal to watch. I couldnt really tell those were fake. its so real. so different.

    I also liked the naboo core underwater sequence. with those giant fish. but not as much as the podrace.

    whats your favorite action sequences? there are tons in the PT. more than the OT actually.

    QGJ & OB1 vs Maul

    It's just so fast and frantic, plus Maul ha TWO BLADES!!! I nearly shat myself when I saw that scene the irst time.

    I would also say the Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon vs. Darth Maul duel.

    Moreover, I have always liked the shot in which the battle droid squadron walks into the Geonosis arena and the camera turns to show all the Jedi charging them.

    The Jangovs. Obi-Wan fight in AOTC. The ground part, the space part wasn't as cool. Obi didn't even fight.

    Geonosis was by far the best scene in AOTC, and in the prequels. The best in TPM was the podracing scene.

    The fight in the rain. It is the only truly fresh action scene--i.e. something almost entirely new--in the prequels ... if you except the pod race and the Arena. And I do. The podrace is ruined for me by its announcer, and the Arena by taking place in a poorly set-up and illogical third act. Otherwise, they might've excelled.

    I wasn't a big fan of the pod race. I enjoyed the Geonosis arena. Qui/Obi/Maul was a great scene. My favorite, though, is Obi-Wan vs. Jango on Kamino. It's just cooler than the rest.

    EDIT: I'll come back after May 19th and give you a new answer.

    1. The Chase Through Coruscant, classic Star Wars fun
    2. The Duel of the Fates, great fight.
    3. The Podrace.

    TPM: The lightning-fast Obi-Maul fight after QGJ is taken out.

    Probably my favorite single shot is also in TPM, when Obi and QGJ kill all those battledroids and rescue the queen: QGJ slashes a battledroid, then in one motion, turns off his lightsaber and slams it onto his belt.

    TPM: The Obi-Wan Qui Gon Maul fight is superior to almost any fight in any film. I also love the podrace. It is fast, sounds great turned up on your home theater system, and keeps your interest even though it's a long segment.

    AOTC: The Geonosis Battle is the best ground battle of the saga.

    The whole Maul vs Obi and QGJ.

    Blue on Blue will top that, tho.

    I promise.

    I think the Chase Through Coruscant is up there. Brilliant action sequence. I think it's interesting and fun the whole way through with dialogue, character development and lots of action.

    Since they won't let us talk about E3-
    In order:
    Duel of Fates
    Yoda vs Dooku
    Arena scene
    Battle of Geonosis
    Pod Race
    Duel in the desert
    Obi vs Jango Fett
    Obi vs Jango Fett- space battle
    Gungans vs. droids
    Space battle above Naboo(Ani desroys ship)
    Battle in the Naboo palace
    Obi vs Dooku
    Ani vs Dooku
    Chase scene on Courasant

    Thats all I can think of right now. Of course this will drasticly change after E3 comes out

    Good Stuff

    Well, I'd say the Coruscant Chase, followed very closely by the Geonosis arena. Just seeing all those lightsabers light up [face_drool]

    If we are allowing for the Clone Wars cartoons though (which are in the PT era), I'd definately have to say the Tram Station Duel, with Jedi/Palps vs. Grievous/Magnagaurds. Definately the most thrilling action sequence yet :D

    Yeah CW has some sweet action sequences. I love the Anakin/Ventress duel on Yavin.

    Forgot about the Clone Wars!
    HAHA loophole! [face_devil]
    I LOVED the attack on Courasant and the kidnapping of Palpatine and the begining of E3

    the clone wars wasnt all that great. I loved the coruscant chase over anything else. other than the podrace.
