It was all explained in the new visual guide, in order to become a master someone must train a padawan to knighthood.

You'd have to either:

A) Be a hardcore Star Wars fan.

Or

B) Be under 12 years old,

to really enjoy the movie, methinks. 40-year old college professors, smart ass under 30 movie critics, and the old white men that dictate what earns an oscar and what doesn't, probably would not enjoy this movie.

But OB1 was a master before Anakin became a knight.... or not?

After his mission to Tatooine, Ki-Adi-Mundi learned that his wife Shea was with child and that he was nominated for a permanent Jedi Council seat as a result of Micah Giiett's death.[4] Ki-Adi-Mundi was soon officially granted the rank of Jedi Master, even without having successfully trained an apprentice.[10] Ki-Adi-Mundi was overwhelmed by the act of the Council and with modesty he continued to consider himself a "mere" Jedi Knight.[5] This changed when he later trained his own Padawan, completing his own requirements for assuming the title of Master.

[4] 4.0 4.1 4.2 4.3 Star Wars Republic: Prelude to Rebellion
[5] 5.0 5.1 5.2 5.3 5.4 Star Wars Republic: Outlander
[10] Star Wars Databank


This also shows that you have to successfully train a padawan to become a master.

The Guide to The phantom menace, or whatever, it''s laying around here somewhere, said that he was an official knight when he was on the council, maybe not for long, but he was.

Sourced from inaccurate EU materiial- ignore that. ROTS makes it very clear that only Masters have ever been on the Council before.

Seen the film! Thought it was very good; it had some very snazzy action ideas. In the end it was just a string of action scenes and as it was lacking many new characters you are stuck with the problem that you cannot really kill anyone (like the end of ROTS- four people ligthsabre fighting, and you know that NONE of them die) it didn't really have an edge in tension but still, very happy.

Yeah. Though, let's be honest- George Lucas never made a movie for the critics. Meh... I'm probably gonna watch it. But seeing as I'm not an uber hardcore SW fan, and I'm over 12 years old, I have a bad feeling about this.

Oh, and is the music as bad as everyone says? People say it sucks hard.

Just face it the Star Wars story is full of contridictions, even if you look at it in the narrow view of the only the movies matter mind set.

On topic of Clone wars reviews:
The only thing worse than the last half of the Clone Wars movie was the collective works of Timothy Zahn.

on a positive note: Captain Rex is AWESOME! (Not talking about the moderator, though he's pretty cool too.)

"OOH! I got an Idea. Let's clone a crappy Jedi General." - Timothy Zahn
and
"OMG! We should clone luke and make it a bad guy. We will call it Luuke" - Timothy Zahn.
"but Timothy Zahn, that's the same name." - Random guy
"no, no, no. It has 2 U's. IT's BRILIANT!" - Timothy Zahn.
and
"Hey, I got it. I'm gonna create a character, he will look like a smurf and his name will rhyme with thrawn. Then, I will bring him back from the dead innumerable times! IT'S BRILLIANT!" - Timothy Zahn

yea... great stuff.

I will admit that some things of his are tacky, but there is much worse in the Star Wars universe.

Yea, but what was tacky about it were the words he used and the way he put them together.

Timothy Zahn is the blight of the Star Wars Universe.

Then who, pray you, is the best writer in the Star Wars universe?

Haven't seen this yet, don't plan on wasting my money going to the theaters for it. To me it looks pretty bad; poor CGI, not enough of the actual voice actors, simple/irrelevant (when talking in terms of the saga's overall story) plot, etc.

Like I mentioned elsewhere, this REALLY seems to me like just a milking of the Star Wars franchise. George Lucas pretty much approves anything and he knows that people will go to see anything that has "Star Wars" in the title. I've been a huge Star Wars fan my whole life and this just seems like a waste to me. That said, I'm sure I'll see it someday, when it's out on DVD and maybe I can stifle my ill feelings for it and enjoy the action sequences. Probably not though, we'll see.
