This link is to the review by redlettermedia. I cannot insert it as a youtube video because then it overwrites the below one for some reason.
I agreed on some of the parts regarding plot holes and retcons (those are my pet peeves), but I believe the majority of the view is biased movie snobbage, particularly the comments about lack of characterization and emotion, and the idea that CGI destroyed the novelty and believability of Star Wars.
For example the guy says that obi wan didnt get mad enough or something, and the "boring" beautifully choreographed lightsaber battles were diminished from emotion and interest. I think there was just as much emotion in the battle against Maul as any other in the series. When Qui-Gon died, I cared for the character and so felt for him. When Obi-Wan said "NOOOO", I felt his rage as he barrelled out of the hallway in an explosive flurry.
Im not going to be wasting my time defending the prequels when someone has already done it for me:
Dont ask me where part one is. I have no idea.
I was pretty surprised when I heard all the hate against Star Wars prequels. I wonder how many other people will be when they see this.
