ATTACK OF THE CLONES! Where do I start.....?
-This is by far my least favorite Star Wars movie. I keep trying to give it a chance to change my mind, but it has yet to be successful. Most of my dislike comes from the cartoon-y look of the whole movie.
-The entire droid foundry scene feels like a video game or a goofy, animated sequence from a Saturday morning cartoon. It might have had a better home on the Clone Wars TV show.
-Anakin is a straight up creeper for the first half of this movie, and then Padme has a sudden, weird change of heart about their relationship for the sake of the plot. All of the love story feels weird and forced.
-I do really like the design of the clones, and the asteroid scene with Obi-Wan and Jango is one of the highlights of the film.
-Actually, anything with Obi-Wan is a highlight of the film for me. I love Ewan McGregor/Obi-Wan Kenobi. They are essentially interchangeable for me.
-I really only have one memory of this movie. It was the only time I did not go to a Star Wars movie on opening night. I think I went the next day for a matinee. It was right in the middle of college.
-I remember being fairly pumped about the movie after it ended, but it has only grown less appealing with age.
-I also remember being super envious of Hayden Christensen...
If I have some time this week, check back for some thoughts on a few episodes of the Clone Wars TV show.
