    Ruminations and Yoda and the younglings are my faves

    worst: Padme and Anakin in the entranceway of the arena on Geonosis and the arrogant librarian

    I act that way at work all the time. I tell people that if a book is not in my library, it doesn't exist. Thankfully I bought all the Infinities comics last year.

    Best scenes:
    1. The hovercar chase scene at the beginning of AotC (including the bar scene). All very well executed.
    2. When Obi-Wan chases Jango in the asteroid field. Also a scene from AotC.

    Worst scenes:
    1. Fireplace "romance" in AotC. I...just...can't...does not compute. Error! Error!
    2. The long, drawn-out fight between Obi-Wan and General Greivous.

    2 best scenes

    Dooku and Obi-wan in the hanger

    Palpatine and Anakin scene in AOTC

    2 of the worst

    "I truly deeply love you and before we die I want you to know" I cringe

    you're so beautiful

    only because i love you

    no only becausae i love you

    so love has blinded you?

    not what i meant

    but it's probaly true

    why is a raven like a writing desk?

    Anakin you're not making sense now

    BEST
    Palpatine and Anakin in the opera (I don't think I need to say why, and Ian sounded spooky)
    Fight between Obi and Ani (though the QuiGon/Obi/Maul fight is right up there)

    WORST
    War on Kashyyk - an utterly unecessary scene that in addition succeeded in making the universe smaller than needed
    Anakin and Padme on the ship in TPM - the acting was quite stilted between Jake and Padme to say the least

    Fav

    Order 66
    Duel of the fates.

    Worst
    Anakin and Padme in the fields
    when Padme falls of the ship chasing Dooku in AOTC, the argument followed by her getting up and running was rubbish.

    These change over time, but here it goes:

    The scene when Dooku appears to Dooku/Tyranus in Attack of the Clones. It was just waiting for the inevitable. And the way both draw their lightsabers is great. Dooku with a salutation and Yoda a la Clint Eastwood.
    The scene where Anakin finds his mother and dies. It was a powerful scene, and the acting was great.

    As for those I don't like, I think there is only one:

    The balcony scene in Revenge of the Sith with Padmé brushing her hair. I know why it's there, but the execution was not that good. It felt forced.

    That scene was added at the last minute for the purpose of showing a good Anakin/Padme moment before the **** hit the fan with his nightmares.

    I enjoyed it, corny as it was.

    Yeah, I don't get why it's so hated. It's as if after AOTC it became fashionable to bash any expression of feelings between the two of them.

    Best - Duel of the fates and the arena battle from AOTC's

    Worst - Where to start? Hayden's scenes (all of them) Grevious...the minute he lights up 4 sabers *facepalm*
    All the crappy looking cgi scenes
    Jar Jar
    Trade Federation
    ...infact -apart from a few scenes I hated the whole prequels!

    There are two problems with it IMO:

    1) Anakin's dialogue is cringe-worthy. It's the kind of stuff a guy could potentially get in serious trouble for. If taken literally he seems to be saying that he only sees her as beautiful because he's blinded by love... which would mean that she's not actually beautiful. Back away slowly.
    2) Padme looks strangely atrocious.

    agreed with Arawn

    (if we're talking ROTS balcony scene)

    But that's what makes it realistic. Guys say stuff like that all the time, unintentionally. They both had a good laugh about it. Also, "love has blinded you" line is quite telling considering the later events.

    That's actually a bigger problem than a dialogue. I think she was filming V for Vendetta at the time which required a different look from her.

    Also, in terms of the editing, it feels like the scene goes on a second or two too long at the end when they're just staring at each other. There is another scene like that later on.

    I don't hate it, but I don't like it either. And I'm one of those who don't have a problem with Hayden's acting in AotC at all. Where people complain about "I don't like sand" I see it as a natural reaction to a young man who took the Jedi's way of life and is now with her old love. But the one from RotS is too forced. They could do (and did) better on that same movie.

    BEST:
    The Opera Scene from ROTS; Ian and Hayden are SPOT on during this scene and with the music is keyed so well for this scene.
    Either Duel of the Fates or just the shot of the Owen, Beru and Luke looking at the Binary Sunset on Tatooine as the music comes in and ROTS ends

    WORST:
    I have to agree with Sistros and say the balcony "I'm so in love with you" scene from ROTS. If I was there and heard that I would have jumped off the balcony.
    The lunch scene with Anakin and Padme where he uses the force to levitate the fruit and let's on that Obi-Wan would be "very grumpy" if he knew what Anakin was doing.

    Putting down the end of Sith? Epic fail, come on! That sequence of events with Vader's mask being put on rules. The whole latter part of that movie is pure win, order 66, the rumination, the immolation scene, classic stuff.

    The slapstick robot stuff and JJ Binks are the worst scenes in the PT.

    Two best scenes

    Most of the Obi Wan vs Anakin scenes from when Obi Wan is seen coming down the ramp to when Obi Wan says you were my bother Anakin I loved you. I still get the chills when I watch that scene.

    The ruminations scene with Anakin and Padme and I must say the opera scene are a tie.

    Two worst scenes

    Jar Jar's battle scenes at the end of TPM

    The planet core scene.

    One of the best scenes that jump into mind are five words:

    "YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE!!!"

    Best: Opening shot of ROTS with the drums blaring. LITERALLY telling a story just with pictures and music all in a seminal shot. Also the Dual of the Fates. Cliché I know but it is absolutely epic and, arguably, was a battle that still hasn't been topped.


    Worst: C3-PO in AOTC. Shut me down. I'm scrap. Die jedi dogs. I'm so beside myself. STOP. Just. Stop.
    Also R2-D2's antics in ROTS. Totally uncharacteristic behavior and action by the little guy.
