    I was watching AOTC the other day. In the scene where Padm'e is packing her bags talking to Anakin when they are in the bedroom, i saw something outside the window hovering (in the film!). I thought if I have missed this countless times then what else have I missed!!

    Have you seen anything that seems to be weird, out-of-place, something that people probably wouldn't have seen. Stuff that will leave us thinking, "How the Hell didn't i see that, it's awesome!":oops:

    HA! The window wiping droid? Even RLM Media caught that little buddy. Of course, he cited it as a flaw. "I thought the Senator would have had better security than that after the last droid tried to kill her". But further proof that Stolkassa goes beyond the normal basher and actually pays attention to the prequels.

    I like the swoop bike gang when Qui-Gon, Padmé, Jar Jar and R2 enter Mos Espa:

    The droids are replacing the broken window. So not a flaw, just an RLM fail... unless joking?

    I actually didn't notice this until it was pointed out by someone else, but in the arena execution scene in AOTC, there's an extra empty column. Most other movies would have been satisfied with having only three.

    That was supposed to be for R4.

    Yes, there were plenty of Easter Eggs.

    A part of Coruscant was based on Blade Runner.

    Not joking, but I'll buy that. I do recognize RLM's bias, but I also recognize that he actually watched the movies with a watchful eye, unlike most of the prequels' critics.

    Except this is an example of a typical RLM stunt: watching the movies with a "watchful eye" - which really means going on a scavenger hunt to justify preexisting prequel hate - while somehow missing the relevant content of the scene in question. We also saw this with the assertion that the Queen's ship isn't hit after R2 fixes the shields.

    When Palpatine and the others watch the Clone Army at the end of AOTC watch Bail before it goes to the wedding and you can see Bail pitifully bang his hand on the railing. Never noticed it until I saw someone post it online ​

    He certainly didn't look happy with the army going to war. Jimmy Smits was underused.

    Since he was the one who took Leia in I thought that he would have had a bigger role in the PT as a whole. We didn't see him until AOTC and he didn't have a true part in the story until ROTS right?

    Correct. I would have liked to see him used a little bit more.

    One of my favorite things in the background was when I noticed the Millenium Falcon pulling in to a port in Revenge of the Sith. Obviously very well known, but it was pretty cool the first time I noticed it.

    I don't even remember the first time I saw the Falcon in the movie or found out about it... Would be nice to go back to that moment.

    I think I remember that one. It struck me as odd.

    Whoa, I knew that New York was the main inspiration for Coruscant, but I didn't know about this:

    And the arena was like the one from John Carter.
    I know that John Carter banths inspired the banthas.
