Ah, but LotR's is a speshal magic oh-so-perfect paragon of cinematic perfection made by that Gentle Genius Sir Peter "Geek Bless Him" Jackson, The Great & Sainted Chosen One. Those (grrrrr!!!!) awful nasty rotten terrible Jar Jar filled prequel things are the reason we have poverty, disease, war and erectile dysfunction in the world and they were made by He Who Shall Not Be Named, the Accursed One. Big difference. Oh and for the record: almost from the beginning of the TPM doco people are giving GL 'negative' feedback, starting with John Knoll. GL and RM congratulated him and gave him a promotion. But maybe I imagined that part . . .
