Can someone explain to me why people thought the prequels were so terrible?   
   
I mean sure Revenge of the Sith was a total edgefest but I thought the others were good.

Qui-Gon Jinn was supposed to be a Grey Jedi and one of the strongest force users in the universe. Did you notice this? Neither did I.

I don't really care about Jar jar, Ewoks are just as stupid.

Upon a recent rewatching, the main thing that got me was the characters, or more specifically, the complete lack of them. None of the main characters have ANY personality. Not Qui Gon, not Obi Wan, not Padme, nobody. Jar Jar Binks is actually a highlight of Episode I because he actually have something of a character.
And then of course there's the forced romance between Anakin and Padme that manages to be worse than Twilight (seriously) with zero chesmistry between them (Hayden Christensen's dreadful acting didn't exactly help...)

Personally I disliked all the crappy romance in clones, or really any seen with Anakin in it

Phantom Menace was and still is a cool movie in my opinion and while Revenge of the Sith does have a few flaws (like introducing general grevious with no effort to explain who he is) I still think it's a really cool movie.

You could watch the plinkett reviews if you have a massive ******** of free time to kill

Watch the plinkett star wars reviews. I personally liked the prequels when they were coming because I was 8 at the time Episode 1 was released. But the plinkett star wars reviews opened my eyes to why the prequels are hated so much.

I'm terribly sorry that you don't understand other people but very few people are willing to watch a review that's longer than the ******* movie

HERE IS WHY PHANTOM MEANICE WAS NOT GOOD:
1) AIMED AT CHILDREN
2) JAR JAR BINKS
3) FORCE RATIONALISED AT "MIDICLORIANS"
4) DIALOGUE AT MORON LEVEL VOCABULARY
5) NO DEPTH OR HISTORY TO STORY
6) **** HOLYWOOD MUSIC
7) NO PERIL
8) GREEN SCREEN SYNTHETIC FEEL
9) SAMESCRIPT FORMULA AS ALL OTHER HOLYWOOD BLOCKBUSTERS
10) NO INNOVATION LIKE ORIGINAL 3
11) CHEAP-ASS CGI ********

1) AIMED AT CHILDREN
so was episode VI
2) JAR JAR BINKS
that's....not that reasonable
3) FORCE RATIONALISED AT "MIDICLORIANS"
No it ******* didn't. The midichlorians are not and never were the force. they are the internet modem, while the force is the internet itself.
4) DIALOGUE AT MORON LEVEL VOCABULARY
It's not as bad as the holiday special's
5) NO DEPTH OR HISTORY TO STORY
That's what the ******* EU was for. And that's what the new EU is for. It was canon back then, and the new stuff (Rebels, heir to the jedi, etc) is going to be canon.
6) **** HOLYWOOD MUSIC
are you ******* serious?
7) NO PERIL
sith, assassins battledroids, and droids with impenetrable shields.
8) GREEN SCREEN SYNTHETIC FEEL
Stop using this argument. the green screen had to be used if they were going to create places like mustafar, kamino (which was actually a real set for the indoor scenes),
9) SAMESCRIPT FORMULA AS ALL OTHER HOLYWOOD BLOCKBUSTERS
No it isn't.
10) NO INNOVATION LIKE ORIGINAL 3
Just. no.
11) CHEAP-ASS CGI ********
The CGI wasn't "cheap" at all figuratively or otherwise.

What exactly was wrong with the CGI? For the most part, it looked great. In my opinion the special edition of the original films is way better than the original cut.

CGI IS CHEAP AND CHEESY AND EVERYTHING IS UNREAL AND IMPOSSIBLE. IT MAKES THE MOVIE FEEL LAZY, BORING AND CONVENTIONAL.

THE MODELS AND EFFECTS OF THE ORIGINALS MADE IT UNIQUE

1) So were the originals
2) Say what you want, he really wasn't that bad. Especially next to Anakin
3) Oh no! They're explaining a plot point! How terrible!
4) It wasn't too bad really
5) Wow. You really must be retarded.
6) The soundtrack is absolutely class
7) Refer to number 5
8) The CGI in this wasn't that bad really
9) Not really. The story of the chosen one turning bad and everything is quite interesting and relatively original.
10) They're follow-ups to the original 3, which means that is pretty much impossible
11) It made the film feel more populated and therefore better. Stop complaining.

i don't know, either. i think some people hate them because they messed up the 'holy trilogy', but i'm sure there's more to it than that. and i thought revenge of the sith was just as entertaining as the other prequels. none were fantastic like the original three, but they entertained me.

That and they made Anikan or however the hell it is that his name is spelled a bitch unless he stared at the camera intensely.
