For people like me (I was 10 when Star Wars came out) the damning aspect of the prequels was how good they could have been. Really, it's almost a better story line and Lucas just mangled it with utter incompetence. Both actors chosen for Anakin were dreadful. Natalie Portman was ok, and looked good in the white spacesuit. The other costumes were stupid. Liam Neesom and McGregor were good choices actually. But all were limited because the screenwriting was terrible...like straight to video low budget no-star terrible. They spent almost an hour on a kid winning a pod race in #1. Really? I would go 5, 4, 7, 6, 2, 3, 1.
