I just want to add my bit about the prequels, I'd probably rank them as follows:
The Phantom Menace
The Revenge of the Sith
Attack of the Clones
Now I know TPM gets a lot of flack but I prefer it over the other two prequels (especially AotC, which I'll get to). I was about 16 when I saw TPM on release and was already a massive SW fanboy. I didn't hate it as much as some but definitely saw it's flaws and that it was inferior to the OT. The thing I like about TPM though is that it is pretty bad but it has more redeeming features than the other two, IMO.
So yea Jar Jar sucked etc, etc. I like Ewan Mcgregor as an actor but I can't stand his portrayal of Obi-Wan, especially in TPM. But I love Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon Jinn, I thought Jake Lloyd was a better actor at 10 than Hayden Christensen was in AotC. I loved the whole podracer scenes. I thought Darth Maul was a great villain and finally the score in TPM is easily my favourite since the OT (and that includes TFA and R1). So yea, I really like some parts of TPM. AotC however is atrocious as far as I am concerned. For me there are literally no redeeming features, I hated Hayden Christensen's portrayal of Anakin, the plot was lame, I didn't like Dooku as a villain, I hated the whole end to the film, Yoda prancing about like a Gummie Bear. Yea, I really hate that film. RotS is better but still is ultimately quite forgettable for me. I've probably watched RotS least out of the prequel trilogy to be fair (only twice I think) and AotC maybe 3-4 times.
Anyway that's my two cents on TPM, it doesn't reach the heights of the OT but I enjoy it a fair bit. And that score.....goosebumps!!!
