must have spent a lot of dollars for that. And DM died just like that!!!
#09 The SFX n aliens. It makes them look like sequals than prequals.
#08 People hating TPM cos there's Jar Jar instead of Vader
#07 The remarks about Mace. He's perfect, he's the best, I love his purple lightsaber, he didn't die, should he have hair? He has more comments then any other jedi! Could it be the black thing? Cos that's just sick.
#06 Is he Count Dooku or Darth Tyranus? Which did they call him in the films
#05 How old is Padme n how old is Anakin anyway
#04 All the padawan stuff. Why have it?
#03 Anakin n Luke both flew a ship n the first trilogy films and got a parade for it and had there arms cut off in the second trilogy films. Very creative GL.
#02 AOTC n CW what the hell were they for?
#01 In AotC No-one could beat Dooku, in ROTS he dies straight away. WHAT'S THE POINT?
feel free to add more or rearrange them in the order that suits you.
#10. You need special training to handle a double bladed lightsaber, they have completely different techniques. It's not money based, it's just how Darth Maul built it.
#9. I don't really understand this one. Are you saying since they obviously look better than the OT that makes them seem like sequels? Get over it, there's a leap in technology since the first films and the newest. You'd be crying to your mommy had Lucas used cheap Special Effects just to match it up with the OT.
#8. It's not just Jar Jar, there's also young Anakin Skywalker. Then you have the Pod Race sequence. The only people who like the Pod Race sequence we 10 when TPM came out. TPM was not needed in the saga. Lucas could have told Anakins past in another film with him already grown up, no need to show an annoying kid and goofy aliens.
#7. Mace Windu is bad ass I agree, but you little fan boys must realize he is dead, What would Lucas gain by keeping Mace Windu alive, huh? There would be absolutely nothing for him to do except to hide for the rest of his life. And no, he shouldn't have hair.
#6. Did you even watch the damned movies? Both of these names were used for him. Count Dooku being the more prominent name since the Jedi did not know he were a Sith until the 3rd act of the film. Darth Sidious called him Darth Tyranus.
#5. Just as Tangible God said, in ROTS Anakin is 22 while Padme is 27. Why would that make the top 10 list of why the PT sucked? Seems to me that you're scrapping the bottom of the barrel to make this list. Oh and Padme did not look like a giant in TPM
If anything she looked age 16 tops.
#4. This is a side of the Jedi we never got to see in the OT, they were all but extinct in those films. Lucas had a chance to explain the heritage of the Jedi Order, and one of those items is Apprenticeship. Once again, like Tangible God said, it shows the humble beginnings of Anakin and Obi-Wan. The hair is to distinguish them as Padawan Learners. They are not discriminated against, they have their place in line and they must respect their elders. Nothing more.
#3. Lucas said in an interview that he wanted the PT to parrallel the OT. Which I believe to be great, it shows how they followed similar paths in life yet one turned to the Light Side and one turned to the Dark Side. Call it uncreative if you want, but lets see you do better.
#2. Umm...the Clone Wars were a big mention in the OT because Obi-Wan met Bail Organa during the wars, which is how Leia knew who to look for. AOTC brought about the war and it also brings in the love story element, getting Anakin and Padme together, without which there would be no Luke and Leia, and no OT. If you don't understand why there was an AOTC, I beg you to look back at TPM and tell me what that film had to do with the overall story...NOTHING. AOTC brought changes for the characters, both good and bad, leading into the 3rd act of the trilogy.
#1. Dooku got the better hand of everyone during the fight in AOTC. First off, Anakin was over-anxious and attempted to fight him on his own, and got PWND. Obi-Wan was no match for Dooku by himself. Later on when he is dueling Yoda he had to cheat to stay alive. In ROTS the 2 Jedi take him on at the same time and also Anakin has had 3 more years of training. Like he said in the movie "My powers have doubled since the last time we met Dooku." Anakin was more powerful, simple as that.
Now, go find some better reasons why, just so I can shoot them down again.
