Well, I mean, of course. It was a rough draft.
Not really, in my opinion the two are quite different, my opinion is probably far from unpopular.
When I saw it I thought it was too much like ANH or ROTJ. But even before Mike Klimo I distanced myself from that view.
One sided pole.
I... never ever even considered this
Haha - 100% no? Sounds right. Anakin blowing up the Droid control ship was criticised at the time for being to close to the Luke/Death Star thing - but compared to TFA (and TLJ for that matter), TPM subverted expectations right, left and centre - that's one of the reasons many fans hated it.
This thread needs this video, in case there is still any room for interpretation.
I would say no

Total rehash. Both were filmed in real deserts after all.
When I saw it, Anakin’s destroying the Trade Federation ship seemed to echo the destruction of the DS by Luke too strongly for me. And the ceremony. But only those parts.
But even these two sequences were echoes, leitmotifs, rhymes.
The movie is actually quite original.
No. There are big echoes (Anakin destroying the ship, the ceremony) but there are a ton of differences.
Ok, just voted, more than a month from when this poll was posted, gotta admit my total surprise that EVERYONE who’s voted, voted the same as me. I mean, it’s the obviously correct answer in any way that matters, but that’s never stopped SW fans from vociferously disagreeing before!
If Anakin was older it would have felt more like a rehash. This way father and sons paths reflect each other but are also different.
The Anakin/Luke stories are parallels. They both leave Tatooine, participate in a star war and become Jedi. They both meet mentors who help guide them and both mentors end up dying.
But, that's just one element from the story. The movies are totally different. ANH is also about rescuing a princess and joining the rebels. TPM much more devoted to politics. You have Trade Federation acting as a governing body and using a blockade to control Naboo. Palpatine uses that manipulate Padme and the Senate into giving him control. The people of Naboo and the Gungans join up to get rid of what will grow to be the separatist movement.
So while there are some similarities on the surface, it is in no way a rehash or reboot.
I believe TPM has more in common with ROTJ.
