    I give AOTC a 7.5. I thought the beginning of the movie was really good and the ending with the fighting on Geonesis was awesome. But I thought the middle of the movie w/ Anakin and Padme love story was just painful to watch. Lucas made it too much of a focus of the movie. Lucas doesn't know how to do a love story and should have just kept this aspect as more background as he did w/ Han and Leia in ESB.

    I give it about an 8.5; I really didn't care for the character of Anakin Skywalker, but the rest of the movie was awesome.

    Well I don't like to give out sores of 10 bevcause in my mind there is no such thing as a perfet film, but this is mt faorite star wars film. I didn't think it was possible to replavce ESB, but it did. I didn't care for some of the editing, other than that . I loved it all. The action, the romance,( and I am a guy) and the greatest ene of all, the confession scene.

    3 a new hope(8.95)
    4 Tpm(8.39
    5 Rotj(8.0)

    Well, I looked at the beginning of this thread, and it started just answering the question by giving AOTC a rating. Now it's down to rating all of the movies. So, here's my rating of all of the SW movies thus far:

    The Phantom Menace: 8/10
    Attack of the Clones: 9/10
    A New Hope: 9/10
    The Empire Strikes Back: 9/10
    Return of the Jedi: 8/10

    All very good movies IMHO. Now as far as "Star Wars movie standards go, they're all a 10 in my opinion. But we're talking about general movie standards, right? :)

    ANH - 10 :cool:
    ESB - 9 [face_devil]
    EP-3 - 8 (i know it's early but it should be the best of the PT's)
    ROTJ - 7 [face_love]
    AOTC - 6 :D
    TPM - 5 :)

    7.5 to 8

    It definitely blows the doors off of TPM (not tough to do IMHO) and I'd say it's right up there even with or maybe SLIGHTLY behind ROTJ, with ANH and ESB bouncing around up at the top of the list.

    The love scenes in AOTC were among the most forced, badly-written/acted scenes of the saga IMHO (Hayden at least tried to breathe life into those stinky ol' lines in the fireplace scene... Natalie looked like her mind was on what brand of bottled water she was going to have when the scene was done) and I think the Yoda saber fight scene was played more for laughs than for drama.

    BUT... overall I liked the movie quite a bit, and may end up digging it more as time goes on and it settles into my DVD collection.

    If you would have asked me this question right when I walked out of the movie theater on opening night, I would have said 9 or 10.

    However, after thinking about the events and going over the story line for a few months now, I have to say like 5 or 6. It just didn't flow well with me.

    Something I thought of the other day, the PT is referred to as Episodes right? Like you say Episode I or Episode 2 and if you see anything printed on them they use the episode number. However, do you say Episode 4 or 5? I know I say A new Hope or Empire Strikes when when talking about the OT.

    The PT just feels like I'm watching TV episodes ya know? Like a young indy kind of thing. Its Star Wars but like a spin off of somekind. The PT is cool, and I enjoy the visuals and seeing where everyone comes from, but I still walk away feeling like I just watched a 2 hour TV and not a movie. Thats just me, flame me if ya want, just my thoughts.

    On the previous few pages, there are a bunch of posts from "old timers" who signed up on this board around '99-'00. One post from Clone War intrigued me, as it gave AOTC a pretty clear dismissal. Seeing as how he was an old-timer, I went to check out some of his older posts. Only three posts remain, but they are kind of funny when viewed chronologically:

    From the topic How many times will you go see AOTC?, on 4/28, Clone War posts:

    [blockquote]I watched TPM 57 times, and I don't even considered myself as a fan!!!

    ATOC - well, at least 80+ times, anyone want to match that?[/blockquote]

    The second post is from this thread What's your rating of AOTC from 1-10 (10 being the hightest and 1 the lowest)?, posted on 5/18:


    "you have failed me for the last time" [/blockquote]

    And the final post, from 5/19, is from How Many Times Have You Seen It?


    Apparently a man of his word, Clone War has not logged in since making this final post on 5/19 6:33am. This is just anecdotal evidence, and perhaps Clone War just changed his profile name, but I still found this pretty curious. I love those totally brief posts -- very concise.

    I find it hard to rate movies by awarding marks out of 10. Especially Star Wars movies.

    AOTC deserves 9.5/10. It is in my opinion the best Star Wars. It has the best action sequences, and you begin to understand the overall story. The only thing that was bad was the plot(i.e. Dooku pitting the republic against the sepratists so that Palpatine rose to power). They could have made it a little easier for people to understand. I mean I get it, but everyone else I know keeps asking me to explain it for them.
