I love the prequels tbh, theyre not really great movies, but theyre really great thematically and the overall narrative is pretty much perfect modern myth on a large scale. Its the small-scale scene to scene stuff that struggled a lot at times. The overarching narrative is incredible, but there are a lot of rough moments that drag them down as movies along the way. Its really interesting to me in that regard, but overall I just find them fun and super rewatchable, even though id never call them great movies

Yeah. The prequels aren't great movies, but the world building is fantastic.

Yup agreed. The problem is the old school fan boys would never give them any credit even though there are positives.

They needed series to fill in the gaps. Likable young snaking you were rooting for turning into puberty asshole Anakin from one to two was just too much to swallow without anything getting you there

It's not cheating. Even if we were holding it to strictly movies, El Camino exists.

I'm more interested in Lalo Salamanca than I've been in any Star Wars character in the past decade. I'm more enthralled with the world of the cartel in that universe than I am with the Jedi and the Sith.

The National Treasure and Now You See Me have potential for amazing things.
