There is one simple fact that many people can't seem to get around. We can't help mocking Star Wars fans ( at least the stereotype of a Star Wars fan) and yet we ourselves are Star Wars fans. So as I watch the conclusion Of Attack of The Clones on Spike allow me to put on the nerd glasses and pocket protector...
The Best Star Wars Film:
The Empire Strikes Back: Is this even debatable? I mean really? I love all 6 movies but this is head and shoulders above the rest. And for once the best character in the series wins out.
The Worst Star Wars Film:
The Phantom Menace: The films biggest flaw is one that it has no control over. The kids who were 10 when they fell in love with Star Wars were now 32 when the Phantom Menace came out. And for better or for worse the films are meant for 10 year olds or the 10 year olds in all of us. I admit a love for this film mainly because it get's bashed so much but it's still clearly the worst of the series.
The Most Overrated Star Wars Film:
Star Wars A New Hope. : Ok it's the first film and that alone should gets it lots of love but it's the dullest film of the series...yes even duller than the Phantom Menace.
The Most Underrated Star Wars Film:
Attack Of The Clones: Yeah Yeah Yeah I know what you're thinking but I love it and I think it's unquestionably in the top half of the series. Every time I see it I wonder what are they bitching about? The dialogue? The acting? There are a lot of reasons to love the original trilogy acting and dialogue were not two of them.
