    The trade federation should have instead been the Mandolorian race which also would have made them who the clones and Jedi fought in the clone wars.
    Actually, not a bad idea.

    I would have liked it if Ani were older in TPM. Not a child. That way we could have disposed of much of the love story in the first movie.

    2nd movie should have detailed the clone wars.

    I also would have cast Jim Caviezel as Anakin. Anyone who saw The Count of Monte Cristo knows that he can absolutely play the very young man role (before he goes to prison) and also the 'man' role. Plus, he is a phenomenal actor and would have kicked butt as Ani.

    Anyway, my .02

    My question is what one thing would you change if Lucas asked you?
    MORE POOP AND FART JOKES! Seriously.... you just Can't have enough of those in a serious film centered around political intrigue and the fate of a way of life. Really think they should have applied the George Lucas method to Apocalypto... that movie seriously lacked in fart jokes...

    While I loved them as a kid, the fact of the matter is, they were never works of the dramatic arts. ...
    I guess it depends on what you consider "dramatic arts", but I would have to say that the original SW movies had a great effect on me. The only other movie that I can say had any real lasting effect on me was Raiders of the Lost Ark, which I know is widely enjoyed by a great number of others as well. Again, not critically acclaimed for its "drama". Clearly there is something else going on. I can't think of a single work of "high drama" that I can say I am a fan of. In fact, I'm hard pressed to think of a good example of "high drama" at all. Oh, I just thought of one - Casablanca. Possibly one of the greatest dramas of all time. And when you think about it, it has a lot in common with movies like Raiders of the Lost Ark.

    The only cool things that came out at that film were Qui-Gon and Darth Maul. And Darth Maul got cheated on screen time. Thats my $2 Dollars

    Amen and So Say We All! Qui-Gon is the only Jedi I've ever liked in both the OT and the Prequels. And Maul... well... what can I say... Why did George have him stand there like an idiot?? Puhleeze.... the Sith was kicking butt the whole time... and then he just stands there.... arrggh!!!!

    In regards to the screen time, yes, it didnt do Maul any justice. As the death of Maul AND Jango, it came tooo easily compared to their *suggested* abilities. Its a shame..

    Totally. AND, as far as Padme (looovee Natalie but.....) I have always thought Chloe Sevigny would have been a great casting choice. One, her voice and some of her demeanor and manersisms are very Carrie Fisher, and yet the blond hair, very Luke (i.e., as seen in various scenes in American Psycho) I alway thought it would have been a good way to offset the "twins" as far as believable cross-casting continuity. Otherwise, Scarlet Johanson staring in TPM when Anakin was already a young-adult Jedi Knight and no Jar Jar

    oh dont get me strated Darth Maul was so ripped off his skills where way ahead of Qui gon and Obi wan lets face it he damn near killed Qui Gon in that scene where he does a flip of his bike and he hadnt even raised a sweat to have that fight scene end with him just standing there and being cut in half was all wrong I realise we needed to keep Obi Wan alive but couldnt he have just droped down and escaped way to little screen time in my opion Darth Maul should have been in ep2 as well

    all that said I am eternally gratefull George Lucas was brave enough to make 6 Star Wars movies and not just set back on the first 3

    any of you guys heard any thing more about the Star Wars television series thats apparently going to be produced

    I was watching a fan edit of episode 1 the other day and I couldn't believe how many little things that could have been changed to make it a better movie! My question is what one thing would you change if Lucas asked you? I will give you mine 1st... obi-wan is hanging in the shaft looking up at darth maul, it is just so lame how a trained sith couldn't see someone teleport up and over his head while grabbing his buddies lightsaber, then gets sliced in half! every time I watch it I feel like I just got a lobotomy! just change it to where obi makes something click behind darth maul to make him look the other way, then he could do his jump.. plus it would link that jedi trick together when he did it again on the tractor beam scene to fool the stormtroopers on ep4.
    if i were obiwan, i would've just used the force to activate the saber and pull it right through maul from behind.
    just my preference, though

    oh god...i was sort of hoping that during the fight in the Senate room in Ep. III that Jar Jar would just walk in and get crushed by something.

    the fact that it didn't happen ruined the movie for me.

    Bye-bye Jar-Jar, cut the podrace in half . . for starters, add a little more Maul backstory.

    Jar Jar like him or hate him had his purpose. He was there to bring in the new generation of Star Wars fans... the young kids. Some of his comic relief was slightly amusing and the actual LOOK of the Gungans was pretty interesting IMO. It was a good DESIGN. Their speech on the other hand had an awful lot to be desired.

    Boss Nas was even more ridiculous IMO than Jar Jar. His stupid spitting scene... what was the point of that? The stupid two headed announcer from the pod race? WHY?

    The biggest problem for me were the Midichlorians ruining the mysticism behind the Force. That was a huge let down and changed how the Force was viewed.... LAME!
