I find AOTC to be similar to Return Of The Jedi- The opening is good and I LOVE the last chunk of the movie but the mid-section is rough.Attack of the Clones
The absolute worst Star Wars movie ever made. Yes, even after The Rise of Skywalker, which I find much more entertaining than AOTC. I don't know why but most of Clones is a dreadful snooze fest for me and it has got some of the worse dialogue in the whole series. The last hour is fun but, getting there is a chore. I don't think it has aged well but that is just my opinion.
Skipping the obvious highlights, some of my favorite moments in AOTC involve Obi-Wan like McGregor's delivery of "Hello, Dex." which is possibly the realest reading of a line in any Star Wars movie. And me and a buddy both love "Traitor" when Obi-Wan is captured and he first sees Dooku.Everything with Ewan in this film is gold.
I think Yoda would have beat Dooku relatively easily but Dooku was gonna squash the wounded Obi-Wan and Anakin with a giant pipe and was able to escape.I still wonder how powerful Yoda is when the 2 major duels he has in the prequels, with Dooku and Palpatine, resulted in non-triumph.
I'm so nuts that I saw it four times in the first 24 hours. 1. Me and a friend saw it at midnight, 2. then while high on just having seen it, we decided to see it again in the morning, 3. I went with my sisters in the afternoon when they got out of school, and 4. I was talking to the same friend that night and we went back at like 10 PM.I still remember the excitement of seeing the midnight opening for Episode II. And then seeing it the next three nights in a row as different friend groups all had different plans for seeing it.

There are so many things I don't agree with. I feel like Kennedy thinks the success of something is based solely on if the original actor plays it. Not on good story, good script, good actors, good direction and good special effects. By that reasoning they shouldn't make the Obi-Wan series because Alec Guinness is not playing the lead role.Kennedy went on to say that the studio has now taken this approach with all of its classic Skywalker saga characters. “We also can’t go do something with Luke Skywalker that isn’t Mark Hamill,” she noted at another point in the interview. “We’re not going to suddenly go try to do that.”
