Yeowch!

1. Lucas can't write scripts or direct.
2. The ex-queen's name is listed as Padme Naberrie. I think Amidala was an honorary... so cut him slack on that one.
3. Mace Windu kicked ass.
4. Yoda kicked more ass.
5. Saruman, I mean, Dooku, was alright. He had a cool lightsaber.
6. They're just Tusken raiders, right? :O

Okay, I give you #2 -- Imdb lists her as Padme Amidala. So her queen title was more like "president", and she used her last name. Same for the whole senator thing, too.

And I so loved the Yoda scene!

1. Padme was cool to me perhaps because I saw the movie in such close proximity to Spiderman. Padme is like "let me kick ass now" whereas M.J. was like "let me whine and get rescued".

2. Padme was not cool to me because she fell in love with her stalker. Hello, can I get an intergalactic restraining order on this guy? He's upset because she kissed someone else when she was 12 and in the Model U.N.??

3. Which brings me to Anakin: Creepy. I mean, I know he's supposed to be foreshadowing, but please. He's more like forehammering. And I really can't tell if the kid can act because, for chrissakes, the dialogue written for him was just so. bad. I'd much, much rather have Tobey M... heh. Let's put it this way; I enjoyed Jar Jar more than Anakin.

4. What is with the like, 5 different "Oops! I lost my lightsaber!" scenes?? I'd think a Jedi would be trained to sacrifice his nuts before his lightsaber hand. I was irritated with the ways the force conveniently worked and didn't work depending on what was needed for the plot.

5. Yoda - As I said, they should have named the movie Episode 2: Attack of Yoda. I will say I think I actually kind of prefer him as a muppet than as CG.

6. I maintain that Samuel L. Jackson was way too Samuel-L-Jacksoney to make him believably.
