Menlu, Gomer, I understand you all(PT gushers) think that these views are our (PT bashers/frusterated fans) opinions of GL's directorial skills. But they are becoming very POPULAR opinions....fast. I am totally dissatisfied with the PT thus far but I was hoping my 12y.o. brother would enjoy it so I could possibly enjoy vicariously thru him. He was 9 at the time of TPM. To this day even he detests the PT and loves the OT and no I did not influence his decision. He also told me his friends also disliked TPM, some like AOTC but not all. This is really depressing that this is going on in my area. I havent heard many positive reviews from people about the PT. I remember telling people at my workplace that I was going to see AOTC again and most of them asked me "What do you see in that s#$%!" and "just wait to see it at the dollar theater, it aint worth it." These are remarks from casual fans and non-fans that were curious. I think GL was lucky for AOTC to barely reach 300 mil. I also believe that if you took out the numerous times gushers went to see this film, it would have been lucky to clear 175-200 mil. Yes people saw the OT movies over and over, but if you apply the inflation rate/movie price increase since 1983, Im sure the OT would have made almost twice as much as it had today.
Yes I agree with the acting flaws. Im just glad princess leia didnt inherit her mothers monotone and lack of enthusiasm and intensity. But yeah tadji's right its not natalie's fault, its George Luca$$$$'$!

Go-Mer (before): Call it losing your inner child, call it growing more cynical, call it being better versed in the way movies are made, but the bottom line is we didn't get hung up on every little thing in the classic trilogy and so we accepted it into our hearts and never asked it to leave. Since then, our "better taste" went on duty, and now some of us can't get into a new SW movie if our very lives depended on it. />
