definitely the best of the prequels. i put off watching this for a long time since i never liked episode 1 or 2, but this one redeems the series. palpatine is truly evil and played very well. he’s over the top and it fits perfectly. christensen leaves something to be desired, but isn’t awful. portman and mcgregor finally act like we know they’re capable of acting. and the script finally has something to bite into. zoe really digs this one. it’s pg-13 so i might be a bad dad.
