so the new york times didn't like attack of the clones. they didn't like any of the other four movies either.

remember, when star wars first came out, there had never been anything like it. remember why you liked it so much. it wasn't the plot, it was that it was that finally special effects had caught up to the imagination and suspending disbelief took a back seat to complete immersion in the fantasy.

today, commercials on tv are more realistic than the original star wars. you aren't going to experience that wonder again. if that is what you are looking for, you will be disappointed. what i am enjoying about the new movies is the fleshing out of the sparse story line of the first trilogy. of course the state of the art special effects are nice, and i am glad lucas has so much cash at his disposal, but special effects are everywhere. i enjoy watching him build his universe, just as i like watching the star trek universe expand forward and backwards in time.
