I was really disappointed by the Episode 2 trailers when they came out. I saw the longest one with Harry Potter, and my jaw just dropped. Hayden Christensen looked achingly bad in the role, and Natalie Portman didn't look all that great either! I'm beginning to think that George Lucas can't direct actors (wink wink!). I've got a feeling this next ones gonna stink like the first! As far as I can see it, the only way to save the third one, is to give it to David Fincher! Didn't he work on 'Return of the Jedi'? Just a thought! Also - I've nailed down what really bothered me about Episode 1 - its the fact that you keep hearing about how the citizens of Naboo are dying and suffering, and you don't get to see one stinking non-royal or military resident until the very end of the movie, and even then they're all simple digital crowds. Its like watching a war movie but only seeing the generals discussing the broad outlines of the conflict. Really bad decision/judgement on Lucas's part IMO!
