And I'm fed up of people bitching about the new movies anyway... okay, so The Phantom Menace wasn't what most people were expecting, and the political intrigue was a bit dull, not to mention the whole midi-chlorian thing... but Episode II was great, and in retrospect you need the dull politics to explain what happens in the later movies. I mean, you couldn't make a movie about World War II that attempted to cover every aspect of the war without including all the pre-fighting politics, and discussions, so it's understandable.
You sir are a very wise man. I just recently rewatched the new ones (Episode I for the first time since I originally bought it on a ... get this... a VHS.) I found I to be almost unbearable. I knew it was bad, but I forgot just how boring it can be at points. But II, that movie blows my mind. I love all of it (cept maybe that scene where Anakin and Padme are out in that field) and the fight between Jango and Obi-Wan rocks my socks off. Quite literally, I had to go find them afterwards. This was pretty impressive considering I was wearing shoes at the time.
