How many times have we bashers of TPM been told that Lucas doesn't care what we want from the movies, he is making SW for himself and will not change anything to suit the dissapointed fans? Check out this quote from Who Weekly magazine: Samuel L Jackson "Menace was a kiddie movie. [Clones] is not ... I think fans are more excited this time, because everyone has heard that [director] George [Lucas] heard their critisms, took them to heart, and made something special." So for once and for all, admit that Lucas DOES care what we think and tried to improve on his last effort. How else can you explain why this film is receiving better fan reviews? What did Lucas improve upon? Story Less Jar Jar More action Darker/adult tone Clone Wars More humour Better dialogue All the things we bashers claimed were missing in TPM are present in AOTC. So, according to the above quote, Lucas did it for the dissapointed fans. So thank the bashers for AOTC my friends. We helped Lucas out.
