    A friend told me he thought AOTC sucked because Anikin didn't have enough of a reason to turn into Vader. I replied that he wasn't Vader at the end of the movie. There's a whole other movie to do that. And his mother being killed was just about reason enough for him to turn dark. His next reply, well either way it sucked.

    "It's incomplete"

    {effects-wise)
    This is from someone who hasn't even seen the movie. ("cool consensus" manipulation :p )

    "Because the movie didn't have Harrison Ford in it..." [face_plain]

    I've actually heard a few people use that excuse a lot, including some critics... [face_plain]

    Your sister was right....it was much better that way.

    Did you read that letter from that beach in the latest issue of Premiere magazine? She said AOTC was one of the worst films she'd ever seen and should have been called Star Bores! Then why did you go see it you dumb broad!!!?

    Since i have remembered some other reasons people have said, i will post them.

    1. There were too many battle droids in proportion to the jedi

    Well duh! i mean one jedi must be worth at least a hundred battle droids.

    2. too many alien jedi

    whaddya expect? it is a GFFA

    3. its just gay

    4. Anakin acted like a baby

    5. it hurt my eyes

    someone told me they didn't like it because Anakin lost his hand at the end of the movie and that wouldn't be enough to cause him to need to wear the suit in the OT. Duh, that's why there is one more film to go in the series, to explain all that.

    Some dumb reasons:

    It's gay.

    Star Wars is for nerds.

    I didn't understand it.

    Its too little kiddish.

    It's not cool to like Star Wars.

    I never saw it, but I know it was dumb because it was Star Wars.


    Those are a few of the main ones. [face_plain]

    Dumbest reason: "Star Wars is gay, man. It's always been gay, since it started. I saw that one with that little kid, and they were on the ship, and it was so gay. That's the only one I've ever seen, but the whole thing is so gay, man."

    [face_plain] Riiight.

    "What's the dumbest reason you've heard for someone hating AOTC?"

    "No flying monkeys"

    Hmm, flying monkeys would have been pretty cool. I don't know where they would fit in the film, but they would certainly add to AOTC. I'm not sure what they would add, but I think AOTC would have been even cooler with flying monkeys.

    Because Anakin was a crybaby. Well, so was Luke if you remember correctly.

    I think the secret reason some hate this film is because Anakin is played by a gorgeous guy. They won't say it of course.

    Fear leads to Jealousy. Jealousy leads to hate. Hate leads to the dar...you know the rest.

    I saw one review which had a whole paragraph slating Lucas for using "old fashioned editing wipes", as if he was going to do anything differently for SW.

    This is my favourite:

    Attack of the Clones should of been Episode I! The whole Prequels should of been about the Clone War! [face_plain]

    JL, I was calling out on the use of the word retarded rather than the spelling. The explanation is off topic, but in short, calling someone retarded is like calling someone gay. Its stupid.

    And yes, I've made millions of typos in my time.

    No flying monkeys?at least we had all of those flying Geonosians and Watto.

    Anyway this guy on the Bus said that he thinks Star Wars is stupid now,sadly he said that he loved the original trilogy but he though TPM and AOTC sucked,he compared the Clones to the Clone plot in Star Trek:Nemesis and said that Lucas was ripping off Star Trek,i explained that the Clone Wars were mentioned in ANH in 1977 and he said he never remembered that,what a moron,damn Trekkie.

    "It looks like a videogame."

    I just find comments like that disrespectful.ILM works their tails off to create nearly flawless cgi and to have someone say that must be very disheartening.I just hope none of them frequent these boards.

    Hmmmm Ok I managed to go through the entire thread and most of it was pretty pointless (the whole gusher vs basher thing).

    But anyway worst complaints about AOTC:

    1) Theres too much CGI [face_plain]
    2) Man that ruins the OT why the hell would Luke marry his own sister? [face_plain] (classic case of not paying attention)
    3) Christopher Lee isn't scary, he's like my grandad
    4) Not enough Darth Sidious
    5) Yoda is too fake

    and its endless.

    Don't flamebait. You'll get banned.

    the dumbest reason i heard for hating ep. 2 was that:
